Bike will only bump start

Recommended Posts

Got an 05 yz250 that will only start when bump started, kicking will not start the motor. Brand new plug,Top end has only an hour on it, carb is clean and jetted fine, reeds are fine as well. Once it is bump started it is absolutely fine, runs great.

I am pretty much convinced it is an electrical problem. I hace read that it could be the stator but I thought that once a stator goes, the bike would just flat out not run? Maybe the coil/plug cap?

Any help would be appreciated. thanks.

Prob take a compression reading just to be sure. Put a meter on your coils, give 'em a visual, etc.
