86 xr 250 seized

Recommended Posts

my sons 86 xr 250 seized up, kick was stuck and motor was stuck. turned the fly wheel backwards and is started working.

next time out same thing. now it does it after a few minutes. I got the valve cover off and do not see anything obvious. any ideas?

My first thought is that something in your oil gets jammed into a transmission gear or a crank gear and when you turn the engine backwards the contaminants fall out into the oil again. Change the oil and go from there.
