KXF 250 2011 sometimes stutters and not acceleration

Recommended Posts

Hello . Averagely twice a week i have strange problems with my kxf 250 2011. During the run suddenly bike starts to work strange i mean : i pull off gas maximally and bike dont accelerate even a bit, and starts to stutter... when i turn bike off and make restart immediately, everything its OK ! Like i said it happens rarely but one time it happened on the jump and i almost done front flip :/ its dangerous to ride like that and i have to fix that problem. My friend told me that maybe air sensor is dammaged?? I checked all connectors and it all seems ok... 
Looking for help guys ... 
Thanks

Hey Lapkos, I had a similar issue on my KX250 while I was riding in a race, then when I got back home I plugged my computer on the bike and got a reading from all sensors and the throtle one was not giving any feedback, I unplugged its plug and found dusty inside, cleaned it and reconnected, then got readings from 0% to 78% on the computer and since then the bike has been working fine,

 

So check the throtle sensor's plug and ensure it's clean and secured.

 

cheers

I checked and cleaned throttle sensor connector and after few rides problem was back again. I tested sensor like manual said and resistance , output, input V are good. Its possible that throttle sensor is dammaged ?
Important thing to accentuate i think...-> after restart everything is ok ... problem back again sometimes at next ride or  sometimes for 2-3 weeks...

Sounds like you may have a bad coil . ( shorting ) or the cdi is failing. do test on them and if ok , then check the stator windings .

reason I think it is ignition is when you shut it down and let it cool a bit it fires right up. Windings  and capacitors get hot and fail. then when cooled of they operate normally till hot again.

Like I said it sounds electrical. If restarting changes the way it runs you may have a bad ecm ( engine control module ) You need to borrow a tuning tool and look at whats going on there. You should be able to see all the sensors. check their performance, reproduce the stutter and look at all the live data.

 

I would check all of the ground wires for this bike also. I think most are under the gas tank / coil area.

Let us know.

If you dont have access to a tuning tool you can start with wiring in a 12 volt light source.

 

There is a 6 pin connector behind your number plate. The red/white and blue/white are the wires to hook up a 12 volt light. Tap into those wires and start the bike. If the dfi system doesnt see any current issues the light will go off after 2 secs of the bike running. If you have a problem the light will stay on. From that point you would have to ground the yellow wire from the same 6 pin harness and it will give you codes using slow and fast flashes.

I did not know this system had self diagnostics, good info. Saves me a lot of time. Thanks.

I have to add one more thing. If the light does stay on you should test for codes with the bike off. You can power the bike with a 12 volt power supply. You unplug  the green plug that is located on the left side of the bike. You will hear the fuel pump turn on for about 30 secs then it will turn off. You can see this plug in Dragons TPS video. He explains how to power the bike and the location.

      Hi, I have just bought a kx250f, 2013 with a freshly rebuilt 2016 motor in it, this is my first time on these forums, anyways, I have also bought a lowering link to drop it 4 inches on the arse, I was wondering if anyone knows how much I should drop the forks? 
      I havent put the lowering link on yet. 
      Thanks.

      Recently had issues with the original fcr carburator that was installed in my 2009 kx250f, tried jetting multiple time and different gas and the bike would only run with the choke ziptied out. Do I went ahead and purchased the lectron gen 2 4 stroke carburator kit, was kinda expensive and I was kind sceptical but after my first ride all I got to say is wow. The only adjustment I have done it set the idle, the bike runs amazing and feels as if there is more power than before. The kit came with a new throttle tube assembly and a g2 throttle tube with adjustable cams for throttle response. I highly recommend if you have a carburator on your four stroke and don't want to get a new dirtbike that is fuel injection then go the route of throwing out that junk fcr carburator and get a lectron gen 2 carburator for your old 4 stroke

      I own a 2012 Kx250F that I would like to make street legal if possible and I recently saw Rocky mountain I believe sells these battery packs that sit in the airbox for bikes without batteries that looks too good to be true and a headlight and turn signals like a conversion kit basically and I was curious as if anyone has had luck with those or if there junk it would be nice to make my bike street legal for short trips or just have lights for trail riding with friends that already do if possible any tips on converting it?
