    Motor HELP!

    I've not noticed any odor while changing the oil which is done every other ride, which hasn't been much in recent times unfortunately, Thanks a lot for trying to diagnose the situation, it would most likely have helped if I was very much mechanically inclined. Like I stated earlier, I just love to ride and only know the very basics, friends usually are able to see me thru anything tricky, but not this time, it's got a lot of people stumped.

    OK, Slackkinhard, Dude your last comment caused me to actually laugh out loud!! I hope that there is a good carb guy in the area, if you'll notice, this whole thing started with me asking if anybody knows of a good motor guy to go to around here.....WOW!

    Motor HELP!

    I don't touch the throttle during start, and I say flooding due the fact that carb is overly full of fuel. With the fuel on you can kick all day long and you won't start this bike as is.

    Motor HELP!

    There is a reason that I shut the fuel off, the bike floods if I don't. Initially I did try to start the bike with fuel on, choke on, and kick, bike flooded, after a lot of time and sweat, the procedure that I mentioned is the only way that we found to get it to start.

    Ok starting procedure a of now, shut off gas, lay bike down drain bowl, lift bike up turn on choke and kick,(kicking slowly till feel pressure bring kick starter back up then kick). If no start after a few kicks turn on gas for a few kicks then start the procedure over again. When bike fires comes on like at full throttle, turn on gas and let off of choke but not all the way or stall, hold choke about half way till warm let it out slowly, hopefully no stall. If bike stalls, will not start back up without choke on, and again with choke on when it fires it acts like it's at full throttle, let choke off slowly again, if bike does not stall feather throttle, it will then come alive, but run ruff and break-up some.

    Motor HELP!

    The garage that just recently had it replaced the cams(spun gears on old ones) and adjusted ignition. They claim that it was running fine when it left, but got it home and not so much! I know that a lot of the free mods were done to it, but it runs worse with the plug taken out of the exhaust and the snorkle removed. I read on here about the hot start possibly causing problems, but as I stated, I'm in no way a mechanic, just a guy that likes to ride. I've had my brother and some friends try to adjust things, and no real luck, I think that I need someone with actual diagnostic skills on this.

    Yeah Ronus that's good advice!! It's a lesson already learned in the past by me!

    Motor HELP!

    :banghead:Can someone suggest a good motor shop or guy to take my 2002 WR250F to. I am completely frustrated by this bike! Pro-Action had it for a month and it is still extremely hard to start and even harder to keep running! I'm not a mechanic, just like to ride and know the the basics. I live just South of Zelienople, Pa., North of Pittsburgh. Thanks for any help.

    What Cams?

    The gears on the stock cams spun do to backfiring, that problem is being looked into by the mechanic at Pro-Action, he has a set of cams that where loaned to him to test in my bike, but I'm going to need to buy a set.

    What Cams?

    My 2002 WR250F is in need of new cams, it's a low hour bike, any suggestions as to what manufactures I should look into, should I go after market or OEM? Thanks for any help.

    radiator repair vs. replace

    Thanks for all of the suggestions! I'm going with the ebay idea.
