Hello Ostandfield1,

Dealing with moving parts can be difficult to work with. My first recommendation would be to remove the carb if you havent done so yet. If you have removed it. I would recommend getting carb cleaner. Put the carb in some sort of bucket or container just big enough for the carb to fit in it. This will be something you will want to throw away after. Once the carb is in the container you can then spray it down and leave the carb soaking in there. If that doesnt work, you can also try to soak the carb in container full of gas to help loosen up the moving parts.

There is also a product called PB Blaster that works wonders on stuck parts. Feel free to give that a shot as well.

Good luck

I just bought a 1985 Honda xr250 and motor is disassembled and was told and can see that the intake valves hit the piston and bent. Only paid $50 for bike but what parts do I need to purchase to run?


Hi, Devin for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

1985 honda xr250 blowing air out the carbs


Air blowing back from the carbs is a sign your intake valves are leaking. They do this when there is not enough gap between the valves and the rocker that opens the valves. They need to be set to 0.003 inches when cold and with the piston at top dead center of the compression/power stroke

Xr250 Carburator running too rich


Take the bottom of your carb off and remove the main jet--the biggest one. Notice the number on it and write it down. Go to a Honda dealer and get another main jet of the same number minus 10. Example; 140 present jet, new jet; 130.

Hi, Doug and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch not adjusted properly.
2. Primary chaincase overfilled with lubricant.
3. Corners wore off shifter clutch dogs.
4. Shifter return spring bent or broken.
5. Bent shifter rod.
6. A loose shift lever on shifter shaft.
7. Shifter forks sprung.
8. Shifter pawl needs adjusting.
9. Heel/toe shifter coming in contact with the floorboard.
10. Transmission oil too heavy.

1984 Honda XR250 with wrong clutch, I think.


The kick shaft gear, idler gear, and clutch drum gear on the 1985 xr250 and below are smaller tooth gears than 1986 and newer. I have an 85 and an 88. I had to replace the 85 kick gears 3 times. The last time I replaced them I found that the larger gears on the 88 fit as long as you replace only the gears. The kick gear comes off the shaft and the larger tooth gear fits on the shaft. The larger idler gear fits where the smaller tooth idler was and the drum gear comes out and the larger tooth gear will fit there. Or the drum you have with the larger gear will now fit the other gears. This is a better solution than finding another drum with the smaller tooth gear because the smaller tooth gears will not last. I hope this helps.
