Kxf250 2013 won't idle?

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I've recently bought a Kxf250 2013 model, this is my first efi bike and I've not much experience with them.

The bike starts first kick every time hot or cold but won't idle at all

I've tried using the fast idle but doesn't make a difference to the idling

I've tried adjusting the idle sped by turning the fast idle clock wise and anti clock wise but no matter what position it's in it doesn't affect the idle, the bike just stalls unless throttle is applied

The bike rides fine and loads of power but as soon as you slow down with clutch in it just stall yet again

I've got a owners manual and there is nothing about not idling

Any suggestions on what to check or replace? Thanks

It may be your valves . I bought a 13 also from an ex pro and then my bike wouldn't idle then it wouldn't start. My whole top end was shot and have half the compression it should have. I'd take it to a mechanic or take apart your top end and check all the parts and the measurements

The bike start fine first kick every time so that's why I'm drawn to it been something else like a air leak or faulty sensor or the idler injector

Stripped it down and found the tps sensor and maf sensors were all corroded in the plug, cleaned them up and now idles good

      Hi, I have just bought a kx250f, 2013 with a freshly rebuilt 2016 motor in it, this is my first time on these forums, anyways, I have also bought a lowering link to drop it 4 inches on the arse, I was wondering if anyone knows how much I should drop the forks? 
      I havent put the lowering link on yet.

      Recently had issues with the original fcr carburator that was installed in my 2009 kx250f, tried jetting multiple time and different gas and the bike would only run with the choke ziptied out. Do I went ahead and purchased the lectron gen 2 4 stroke carburator kit, was kinda expensive and I was kind sceptical but after my first ride all I got to say is wow. The only adjustment I have done it set the idle, the bike runs amazing and feels as if there is more power than before. The kit came with a new throttle tube assembly and a g2 throttle tube with adjustable cams for throttle response. I highly recommend if you have a carburator on your four stroke and don't want to get a new dirtbike that is fuel injection then go the route of throwing out that junk fcr carburator and get a lectron gen 2 carburator for your old 4 stroke

      I own a 2012 Kx250F that I would like to make street legal if possible and I recently saw Rocky mountain I believe sells these battery packs that sit in the airbox for bikes without batteries that looks too good to be true and a headlight and turn signals like a conversion kit basically and I was curious as if anyone has had luck with those or if there junk it would be nice to make my bike street legal for short trips or just have lights for trail riding with friends that already do if possible any tips on converting it?
