  2. i did a leak down on everything and its bogging like its drowning
  3. heres my issue: i have a 1988 rm250, bought it over the winter in hopes of having a dirt bike for this riding season, it was a fixer-upper, replaced almost everything. i go to start it and it bogs..not just your tweak the air screw or replace a jet kinda bog, i mean this thing the second i put on the gas, bogs like crazy. so i did some debugging put the stock jets back in it and it still bogged like crazy. so i switch my mikuni tm carb for a keihin air striker carb and tuned that a little and the bike still bogs like i did nothing to it!! Guys i really need help with this, ive done a leak down test 100% sealed up. Compression is 155 is this just one of those things were the bike dosent run and you just dont know why?? Really frustrated right now i have absolutely no idea why its doing this! i have 1500 in it and im about to just sell it and take my losses, unless someone knows what in hells name is the issue. Please help!

    1988 rm250 rebuild issue

    ok so i fixed the white smoke problem, the spacer where it goes over the crank seal was installed the opposite way and now it starts on first kick!!! :D but it still idles really high...now when i start it it just automatically goes up really high, i looked at the carb slide when it was on and i gave it throttle, and it when back down all the way like it should. the air screw seems to have minimal affect if i turn it just a microscopic turn in or out it will either make the engine die or rev even higher.. any help??

    1988 rm250 rebuild issue

    one other think, do you think i could be burning coolant?? cuz it didnt smell like it was burning oil, i wouldnt say it smells sweet, (i dont even know what the "sweet" smell would smell like if you know what i mean) i have seen 4 strokes burn oil and it smelled nothing like what came out of my 250..wouldnt say it smelled sweet but i can def say it didnt smell like oil..but idk ill have to drain the coolant and see if that makes a difference

    1988 rm250 rebuild issue

    Hi, i just rebuilt a 1988 rm250, replace crank piston crank seals, complete new gasket kit, the whole 9 yards. so now i have a few problems.. the bike was hard to start at first and the dealer told me to put some kawasaki fogger in there and that would start it up, so i did...a bunch of times cuz it didnt start the first time i used the fogger, took me a bunch of tries but finally got it. 1) when the bike starts up it idles really high ,and slowly idles faster and faster (things i have debuged, turned air screw in and out, had no change, and throttle cable dosent appear, or feel to be kinked) 2) alot of white smoke comes out of it, no blue and white just all white. smells a little weird too whats really scaring me is that i REALLY hope i did not install a crank seal wrong, i double checked and everything, so i dont know if crank oil is getting in there or not, and another thing could be coolant is getting in there, but like i said i put new gaskets on everything and put yamabond where there needed yama bond, included the base cylinder gasket.\ i dont know if its the fogger just burning thro the engine, but i have started it up 4-5 times to try and fix the idle problem and all i see is a big cloud of white smoke coming out. i really REALLY hope a crank seal isnt installed wrong ok after doing a bit more research there is oil coming out onto the expansion chamber on my bike from the exhaust port, which from what i have read on other peoples bikes it means the right crank seal might be installed wrong. can someone clarify this???? im going to be pissed if i have to split the cases again :'( please help!!

    rm125 pops before it blows up

    well my rm250 is having similar issues, and one thing that could be wrong is your power valves might be hitting the piston..idk but my 250's power valves are broke and thats what i think is wrong, piston can wobble back and forth too so hopefully your issue might be the same as mine. Hope this helped
