250x cuts out

Recommended Posts

My 2006 bone stock crf250x runs perfect for 5 minutes, then dies like it's out of gas.

It won't start for about 30 min, then repeats cycleicon1.png.

It just started doing this after the winter.  I even changed the gas and ran it a coupleicon1.png of times.

I figure it's something with the float.

 

I'd like to do this myself. 

What's the generalicon1.png "how to" to go about repairing this?

 

What may I expect to pay someone to fix iticon1.png?

 

Thanks in advance,

TomJV

1. remove the gas tank vent to see if it is clogged, and try again

2. if it still does it, it's because you have fried the stator from running the bike too lean

3. you MUST re-jet and uncork you bike or this will happen again

4. replace stator, re-jet and un-cork.

Stator, check.  That makes spark right?  Why does it work intermittently?

 

How is the stator changed?  (Briefly)

 

Thanks very much!

Im in the same boat with an 08 CRF250R. Mine has a nearly new stator (20ish hours) The bike will run for a short period then stop, pull the tank off and check the spark with a tester and it still sends a big blue spark 20mm across the tester & over 200V from the stator but the bike wont run. Whole motor has been stripped, new crank seals, relapped valves & clearences. ????? Whats wrong?

Sorry, can you tell me how to test it's the stator?

 

I just assumed it was carb.  It seems to me, it's burning the gas off in the float bowl, then dieing.  I figured I had a clogged jet.

You will need a Peak Voltage Meter, just connect to the wires coming from the stator, there is four, two for the Ckp sensor and two for power. you need the white and blue wires. remove spark plug and kick over.

Hey Thanks for the advice!

But it turns out I had a clogged fuel filter inside the tank.  Disconnected the fuel line from the carb and no gas flowing unless I put it on RES.

 

BUT, I ordered new jets and gonna do baffle and air box gut & jet too!

Thanks!
