Fuel injected kx250f idle and start problems

A couple of days ago my 2012 kx250f started idling strange. It sounds like its stays on the choke when the choke is off. I have tried messing with idle speed nob on the choke but when I try to turn it down it starts to run like its normal self then dies. Because of the constant high idling it is getting way too hot. I started around the beginning of the day of riding. And ever since the idle has given me issues now starting the bike up is a pain as well. It takes me about 10 to 15 mins to get it to start up. These isues have been going on for a couple days now..... I dont know much about fuel injection so can anyone help me out? Thanks

I have an 2011 kx250f and my problem was the T.P.S Sensor on the left side of the bike.

Good to know man. I was kinds thinking that

It ended up being my valves

I was just getting ready to post an identical issue with my 2011 RMZ250. I can get mine started a little easier but the idle RPM hunts and I need the choke turned almost all the way out. I know I don't have any valve issues. I've checked the TPS and all electrical connections to the throttle body and air box. I'm running a PIM2 with a Ron Hamp program. I've checked the hot start and it's working as it should be. Anyone have any ideas on what the issue may be? Thanks!

You said you know it isnt your valves but does that mean you checked them when the problem started?

      Hi Guys,
      So I recently bought a 1997 XR400. I've done some research into getting more power through some basic mods and rejetting the carbs. Though all of the ones I've found have been for post 98 XR400s so the stock carb set up is a lot different. Usually people are opening up the airbox, exhaust ect. ect. and Jetting their carbs up to 160/162 for mains around 60 ish (I think) for the pilot. However for the 97 model this is close to stock for the jets.
      So essentially what Im asking (Just to cut to the chase ) Has anyone got a 96/97 (maybe 98, not sure) XR400 and has done these similar mods, and what sort of jetting have to done as a result.
      Thanks in advanced, also its my first post so apologies if I havent done everything correctly.

      38MM Cast SmartCarb. Purchased a couple years ago for a yz250. Don't have the bike anymore, and it has been sitting around for about a year. Used, but in fine working condition. You can also purchase a different needle for different bikes, as well as rebuild kits from their website.
      Asking $250 shipped to continental United States. I can arrange other shipping options at the buyers expense.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      I know this topic has been discussed in the past, but I have not found any options available for the new 2018 bikes. I live and work for a new Beta Dealer (Auburn Extreme Powersports) in California, and we are having a difficult time mapping the RR-S bikes for full FMF exhausts. We have tried contacting Beta Support several times for this issue to no avail, and we typically are given the runaround when transferring to techs and secretaries. From what we can gather, the FMF flash is designed for the RR bikes, but not the street-legal counterparts. Every time we try to install the FMF map onto an RR-S errors occur, and the programmer screen goes virtually blank. We have heard through the grapevine that some are using the RR maps on the RR-S with success, but we have yet to try it, even on our own bikes for fear that it will permanently erase or damage the CDI. Any and all help or suggestions regarding this topic would surely be appreciated! Thanks, Ben.
