2008 CRF 250r top end rebuild but wont start?

Recommended Posts

Sounds like you might need a more experienced mechanic. If it has spark and is getting fuel, check the valve clearances and the camshaft timing. I will assume it was running fine before the motor work was done!

It died the last time I rode it, he's just called me and sorted the problem , the 2008 had 2 different heads, a standard and an EX head, the ex head requires a spark plug adaptor, the head that was used as replacement was the EX instead of the standard . Its running sweet now, he's a good mechanic gave me a huge discount for the downtime, just needs a new carb now,never ends with these older bikes. Off on a two day ride in Taupo, which is in the central north Island of New Zealand. The rides sponsored by Suzuki its called the berm buster 2014, check it out on you tube. Thanks for the advice

EX as in "X" head, "ex" is how you would spell out "x"? That's the head from a different model bike, I believe.
