Hey guys, my names Cory, I’m new to this whole big bike thing but I’ve ridden dirt bikes and downhill my whole life and I’m wondering if there are any real problem solvers who are on their phone as much as they are on their bikes like me, I just got my cr 250 and it’s running and riding it’s just a little ruff around the edges just like every secondhand bike you come across so if this post gets enough attention I’ll post some pictures if I can figure out how on an iPhone and I’ll keep in touch! Thanks everyone for your time and have a good one!

Clean pilot circuit and jet. The choke adjusts the idle twist counter clockwise to increase rpm. Clean and oil air filter.

Exactly what does this mean?

"...constantly have to keep the revs up under clutching."


Did you try to adjust the idle screw and idle mix screw?

How many kicks does it take to start?

It takes about 10 or so odd kicks and in response to the other question if I’m riding and I pull the clutch (say to come to a stop) the bike will cut out unless I keep the bike reved up and thanks for the help again!
