    Help Bike wont start!

    The bike is perfectly in time and the valves are brand new, ground and set to spec. I know the bike has good spark, I tested it and it is in spec. I guarentee that it doesnt have enough compression because all of that oil and antifreeze got in there and made a film on the cylinder wall. This means tear down again and hone and rings.

    grenaded my 03 250f, any help?

    Well It all depends on what you want to do with it. I myself have destroyed my motor a couple of times. After about twice it is better for you to fix it, get it running and then sell it because when an engine blows like that it puts a lot of strain on the cams, valve train, crank, tranny ..etc. It is always better to get it out of your hands and start out fresh. Nothing is better than a fresh bike.

    I thought id ask

    I work at a bike shop and got the priveledge to ride the first one. The bike has a lighter feel and an overall better ride to it. As for the motor is has smoother power delivery and response. The bike is an awesome bike but I believe that you can have just as good of a bike if you buy a recent year bike and do some upgrades, besides its not that hard to pull some ponies out of the engine.

    Help Bike wont start!

    I have an 03 250f that is basically stock except for a pipe and porting and polish work. The plug inside the head that seperates the oil from the antifreeze vibrated out and caused the engine to quit. I tore down the whole motor, cleaned everything and reassembeled. I then got it to start after many many kicks. I would stall all of a sudden. I continued kicking until it ran. It ran for awhile then quit and now wont run again. I tore the whole carb apart and cleaned everything and it still wont start. I am getting a little frustrated and need some advice. thanks.
