2009 Kx250f still won’t run

Me and a buddy have done everything to get this bike to go and we’ve just about had it with the thing. Ran fine for about two months slowly got harder and harder to start. Did a shim job, changed piston and rings. Got it together still had problems with it bogging down on acceleration. Changed out seals in carburetor mid body cleaned the whole carb out and changed the accelerator pump diaphragm. Bike still bogs down really bad rarely runs fine. Anybody have any ideas? Maybe not getting enough air??

1) Possible bad batch of gas or/and dirty lines. Drain the tank. Rinse it. Replace the fuel line. Refill with fresh 91 from the pump. Replace the spark plug too. See what happens. You may have to clean the carb again as a fouled fuel supply will replug jets soon after a cleaning.

 2) look for air leaks in the carb to head boot or hot start cable boss.

3) check jet needle clip is at 2nd notch from top of the needle

 4) a valve or seat shot

 5) cam timing off by one tooth

6) rings on piston not proper

      2015 Kawasaki KX250f - 20 hours
      As close to new as I'd imagine you'd get! I bought the bike brand new, I'm older and have taken extremely good care of this bike. Very little use and is COMPLETELY stock - everything is original. 
      Comes with the title, original book and map couplers for the fuel injection.
      $4700 - cash

      Time for a top end on my bike, just wondering if there are any alternative Valve springs i can use. I have PC cams and $400 for just the springs and retainers is alil costly at the moment.
      This has been fun in other sections of TT, so I'll start the thread here and see if we can keep it going.
      Let us know what kind of mods, fixes, changes, etc.., you performed today, or just general fun you had with, your KX250F.
      I'll start with.. I installed a correct for my weight Race Tech shock spring, along with a Pivot Works shock spring thrust bearing. Also cleaned out all the nasty yellow plastic/wax crap that passes for grease in the lower shock bearing, and re-lubed it with Bel Ray waterproof.
