Well, the obvious things: The kill-switch should be in the working position, the key should be in and turned and of course there should be enough fuel in the tank.
Sometimes and especially during cold weather you may need to turn the throttle a bit as well, while using the kick start.

My 2015 suzuki rmz250 has really weak spark and won't start by kicking, only pull starting it will light it off.


Hi, Parker there is no such thing as a "WEAK SPARK" even though dozens of riders will swear that's what they have and are dying to show you, the bottom line is either you have spark or don't have spark there is nothing in between.
You won't see a dirtbike spark really well, and people only look at it when they have a problem. It is designed to fire under extreme pressure (13:1 compression) and is very robust, but it is not a 1mm bright blue line jumping across a spark plug. It can be white and very hard to see. If you are confident you have weak or no spark prove it by holding the plug in your hand and stark kicking you will be in for a "SHOCKING" surprise!!!!!
60% of these bikes have a flooding issue and/or a fouled plug. 30% need valves adjusted and most of the remaining 10% are something simple in the electrics like a broken kill switch, bad earth on the battery or dead battery, wiring at the steering head damaged or blown fuse.

I'm having trouble starting my 1985 rm 250 and I


It means that unburned fuel collected in the exhaust pipe then ignited when the spark plug fired due to the rotation of the crankshaft. It also means the spark plug is firing and the cylinder is getting gas... too much gas. The engine is flooding out due to much choking of the carb during kick starting.

How to start it.


Turn the run/stop switch to stop, choke the engine and give a couple of sharp kicks then turn the switch to run and it should start in a kick or two.

A fterI warm up my 01 rm 250 my bike don't start


Possibly the choke is getting stuck internally, Even thoug the leaver may be in the closed (normal) position, it may be sticking internally. Try removing the choke and cleaning the passage with some carb cleaner, then replace the lever. The bike could run with a partially cloged choke but would be tough to start when warm due to too much fuel. Another thing to check, when it is hard to start, just after kicking it over a few times, remove the spark plug and see if it is wet with gas. My guess is that's it's soaked. Good luck.

My rmz 250 wont start on the first kick when the choke is on but when the engine is on and hot it starts first kick with no choke?????????


It takes a little suction for the gas to reach the cylinder from the carb. When it is hot and on, the gas is readily available. So a kick or two, when cold starting is not abnormal. Alternatively, kick twice with the key in off position. Then turn the key on and kick, the engine will start instantly. Idea is the make the gas reach the inlet.

1987 rm 125 starts and idols fine, bogs out on take off!!!!


Pull the slide out of the throat of the carb then move the clip at the top of the needle down one notch, two if needed. This will richen the low end fuel mix.

Need a "very helpful" rating asap. Thanks!

Hot starter


4 stroke engines require a leaner than normal fuel/air mixture to start when hot. The cold start choke allows more fuel into the mix. The hot start choke allows more air into the mix.
