I have a 2008 KX250F I got it running, but it’s back firing some. I also can’t get the idle adjusted. I already cleaned jets and the idle screw is right. The fuel screw is the way it’s suppose to be. Not sure what the issue is. Already checked the timing and it seemed to be correct. I’m lost on what else to try, if you could give any suggestions to what to do I’d appreciate it!
I bought an xr650l that was in good condition but had not been ran for a while. The old carb had a bunch of mods done on it and I couldn't get it to run, so I bought a brand new oem Honda carb and put it on it. Now I can't get it run off choke. The idle screw has to be very high for it to run, and once I take the choke off it sputters and dies after a minute. It also backfires into the carb. I tried taking apart the idle circuit and cleaning it, as even though the carb was brand new, but it was squeeky clean. I've tried adjusting everything on it and spent days fiddling with the carb with no success. I'm tempted just to sell the damn thing. My next thought is it's a vacuum leak but it's a brand new carb More info about bike: Recently replaced CDI and valves adjusted. It has an Acerbis tank and an aftermarket FMF exhaust. It has stock jetting.
I recently bought a broken kx100 that suposedly only needed a kick start gear. So i bought a parts engine and replaced the lower unit with a working one and did a top end rebuild. It put it partially back together following all torque requirements and tried starting it. i tried kicking it but the kick start will engage but wont return back up after i kick it. So i decided to bump start it (with the original gas it came with, idk if its bad or not). After giving up on kick starting i bump started it, this after a while made it start up and run crappy a few times. But every time it would start after 1 minute it would die and come to a complete stop. The piston would not move in gear when i would pushed the bike. So i took off the flywheel housing and spun it from there, once i did that the piston freed up would move when in gear. and also would start and move for only a minute and then return to doing the same thing. It seems like the engine internals are binding up on something or something is not in there properly. Anyone had a simular problem as me? this is driving me nuts because i have alot of money in the bike and it starts bud doesnt run correctly
