I had a heck of a time starting my CRF250R today. It was sitting for over a month. The last time it was runing, I was messing around with the pilot screw but not knowing what the hell I was doing. Today, it took me an hour to start the beast. It started after I turn the pilot screw a little bit. Well, I got it to the point where I can kick start in one slow "push" of the kick starter. Again, I have no idea what I was doing. I just turn one direction....test....then turn some more or do the reverse. I think I just got lucky and got it to the right spot. The real test will be when I start this when it's cold. MY QUESTION IS: Does the pilot screw that is under the carb affect starting the bike?
