im such a dumbass

I bought a used 97' kx 250. Tore it down cleaned everything replaced the rings added new levers a flywheel weight a new clutch new spark plug new clutch cable new fenders shined polished and prayed... Well it won't start. F$$$ me with a 10" cactus. I put straight gas onto the tip of the plug and kicked it brappppppppppp fired right up. Turned it off after it warmed up and waited til the bike cooled off to see if I could kick it on my on fuel on choke out kicked it for 30 mins nothing but a pungent odor of fuel in the air. The carb under the bowl in The inside where the jets are the metal casting that looks like fins I accidently broke the corner off. Would this affect anything! I have compression I have spark and Damn it I know I have fuel I just cleaned the carb. I have the stock pilot and a 162 main what the he'll is going on!!! I'm loosing my mind

Are you saying you broke a corner off of one of the reeds valves?

And yes that will cause the bike to not want to run.

Easy enough fix, their cheap and simple to replace.

I'd say you're testing your luck by just re-ringing the old piston as well.

      Alright, found three bikes all located where i live in Texas. I know they're all very different, but if you could tell me what you think each bike is worth, and which one would be the best deal. Thanks.
      Notes: Both 2 strokes have new top ends. I think the front brake lever is broken on the kawasaki.
      KX250 2002 $800-$1000?

      YZ125 2000 $1250

      KTM 400SX 2002 $1200

      So I'm at a bit of a cross roads, I currently own a 06 rm250 and I love it. I also have a 02 kx250 which I'm selling with intent to buy a newer two stroke. I can't afford a newer ktm and the older ones aren't that great and kawasaki never impressed me. so I'm stuck between 06 yz250 and 05 cr250. I've heard the yz and rm after 06 are almost the same bike just the Suzuki handles better and the Yamaha has better suspension. So I'm not sure if I wanna buy carbon copy of my bike with slight differences. That's why I'm interested in a cr250 I heard the 02+ models RC valves are shit garbage but was mostly fixed in the 05-07 models. I ride at a track and at some bogs down the road from me. So from people who have owned both, what would you recommend. I know the cr is known for a hard hitting power band which I enjoy since im an aggressive rider. Should i just see which deal comes my way first.
