1984 xr200r starting?

Recommended Posts

I have an 84 xr200r that i got for my girlfriend to ride. It used to kickstart in the first couple of tries. Now i cannot get it to kickstart when it is cold. I can run start it and itll start first try. Then if i warm it up good itll kickstart after that. I dont know if it is cold weather or what. Any suggestions? I have played with the idle but it doesnt help. I dont wanna take the carbs out unless really needed since it is the dual carbed pain in the ass version. Like I said it runs fine and kicks warm but will not kick over cold. Thanks for any help.

Since its colder out your jetting is a bit lean probably. Try turning in the air screw some and see if that helps.
