  1. Needing some help, Picked up an 03 rm 250 non running. The guy had the cylinder replated and honed and a Wiseco top end kit put it but could not get it to start. It's getting spark, carb is clean, it's getting gas, the piston and rings were put in the right way, feels like it has great compression but almost feels a little hard to kick over. Not sure what could be causing not to start, any ideas??

    Suzuki Lt250r not running good need help

    I have an 1990 lt250r Suzuki that I have just fully rebuilt crank top end everything. I did the whole motor my self besides having a friend put the crank and cases together. I got it ready for the first start and it was hard to start, has great spark and compression. The only way it will start is spraying starter fluid in the plug hole, and it will run as long as I stay on the throttle as soon as I let go it dies. It also smoked really bad white smoke and then turned into more of a blue smoke but there's quite a bit of smoke. Wonder if it could be a bad crank seal and if so can fix it with out splitting the cases
  3. I'm new to atv's but I recently bought an lt250r 1990 and have been rebuilding it, I have went with the hot rods crank, have a new cylinder sleeve with new piston (stock bore), had the frame and a arms powdercoated, frame is ktm orange and the a arms are black with black wheels, I got the grey plastics for it, put black renthal twin walls on it, got rid of any blue that was on the bike, new ball joints, everything electrical is new. Have a kehinin carb (believe that's how it's spelled) and I'm running a full new fmf exhaust. Tusk clutch. With motion pro cables. I'm wanting to go with a different set of shocks, thought about using shocks off a yfz 450 or fox podiums I'm wanting to lower it, is there any good kits out there for lt250's? Also I am wondering what else can I do to get Max power out of it?

    the guy also said it was a 1997 factory racing model which I don't know if that's true or not but it has yellow wheels which aren't spray painted and a yellow frame

    rm125 problems

    I picked up an rm a couple weeks ago for 200$ at the time I bought it the guy said it had carb problems, well I took off the top end an it was filled with water, so I tore down the motor an cleaned it and then changed the oil repeatedly 4 times to get the access water out and then put Lucas gear oil in it, the guy after I asked why there was water in it said he wrecked into a pond ,wasn't happy lol well I got the bike to run but it won't stay at idle, and it dies when I try putting it into first almost like it doesn't have a clutch. any body have any solutions thanks!

    2006 honda crf 250r keeps dying

    I purchased it from the people that had it rebilt and I was looking at where they charged for a new battery going what the heck it doesn't have a battery, I contacted the original owner and there calling Honda. its was may that it was repaired so I dont know if they will cover it. The old owner isn't wanting to take it back getting pretty pissed but if it is the stator I can get one pretty cheap.
