Pull the carb and give it a thorough cleaning, check compression and maybe put a new ring and/or piston in it depending on how it looks. My two stroke 250’s have always started even in the cold on less than 6 kicks.

Spark
Air
Fuel

Oh yeah and tranny oil among some other things. But those three items listed above , if you got it , you're close to getting it fired up.

Pull the spark plug, clean it, install it, fire it up. It works.... sometimes.

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

Find a hill, or get a buddy, make sure the gas is on, the run switch is on, push it as fast as you can,
jump on it while it's moving, pull in the clutch, up shift into 2nd and plop down on the seat at the same time.
If the tire skids up shift into 3rd, open and close the throttle as its turning over while it's moving, until it starts to fire.

It fires off, pull in the clutch, revving up and down until the thing clears out.

You've probably flooded the thing.
Pull the spark plug, it's wet, you flooded it.
If flooded, turn the gas off, spark plug out, kick the hell out of it for awhile, blow that excess fuel out of it, try again.

HELP!

You happen to know anyone that rides in Israel (http://m.vitalmx.com/forums/Moto-Related,20/Offroad-biking-in-Israel,1331642)?

If not, there is a pretty famous guy from Bethlehem. Today is his birthday, although don’t know how much riding he does as I think he’s getting a little long in the tooth. Heard he can pond skim better than Pastrami though. Like, he can skim on water, forever.

much ty. How to spot a paid forum poster/artificial forum traffic producer (see list of actions/phrases below):

Copius pattern amounts of phrases like “Anyone have”..., “Anybody know?”.... and their variations.

Thoughts?
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Geez, thought I was the only guy to try that. Propane torch, tip of plug red hot, slap that sucker in with gloves on,
Kick it quick, does sometimes work.

Guys will jump all on this, but, a can of starting fluid, 2 squirts directly into the carb, was a Godsend on the starting line when I raced a yz 465 open bike.
And before anyone chimes in on how bad it is for the motor, I never seized that bike 2 years running.
