if your carb settings are all messed up, yes that sounds normal. do a search on here. there is gobs of information about starting procedures and how to make your beast start easier. more than likely you need to clean the carb, bump the pilot jet up to a #48 from the stock 45 if its been modded at all, check valve clearances, check opperation on your manual decompression lever, and make sure the air filter is clean. i have an 03 xr250 and it starts one or two kicks cold, so it can be set to start easier.
