well i took out my bike i picked up last weekend for the first time. i had a great time and overall i was very happy with the bike, except for one thing...it can be a real bitch to start sometimes. it usually takes no less than 10 kicks to get the thing going. my starting routine is this- put the choke on half way pull the decompression lever and kick the bike let go of the decompression lever and find tdc and kick it hard. i am pretty sure it is the jetting and possibly the valves need to be adjusted. im going to try and adjust them going by the article posted at the top of this forum. specs on the bike- 97 xr250 whites bro e-series exhaust before i ride it next i am going to- *pull the snorkle *grind the header welds down can anyone give any suggestions on where to start?
