  1. Hi, I am not sure what to do about an issue I'm having with my 2011 KX 250F any suggestions thanks Checked the oil level it was good, started it with the high idle on, started on 3rd kick, shut high idle off 30 sec later, let it idle normally for 3 min. Drove down road about 500 ft, never reached high RPMs yet, it squealed and skidded to a stop, left it for 2 min (trying to figure out what to do) pushed down the Kickstarter slowly seemed normal plenty of compression, kicked it over and wouldn't start unless I gave it some gas, let it run for 30 sec and cycled through all the gears no issues, I drove it back to my shop and let off the throttle and it died. Tried to start it the next day it will fire but won't run, checked the camshaft clearance is good (it was replaced about 6 months ago, after a similar issue of the bike skidding to a stop) what else should I check before taking it to the shop, thanks
  2. Okay so i have had this ds80 for awhile i bought it about 3 months ago and its a 1986 suzuki ds 80 shes in pretty rough shape when i got her dirt and grime wise not to mention she wont start. I began taking the engine apart looking at the fuel thats coming in and noticed on the spark plug that it was fouled up with uncompressed two stroke fuel and that their was barely any transmission oil in the low end so i set out and bought some good top of the line gear oil and regular pil tried to start it like that but it wouldnt work i checked for spark against the cylinder head and it checked out and i was getting fuel so my next thought my seasoned rider friends told me i didnt have enough compression because it was easy to crank over i put my finger over the spark plug hole and cranked it over and their was a decent amount. May i also mention that when i got it the ds8p was flooded and i had to undue that. So after taking apart the engine and the carb the bowl and lower end of the carb were the float resides is super ate up and riddled with white metal oxidation which is from water obviously so i cleaned that up and my next idea is that their is a compression issue so when taking the head off both the piston and cylinder walls looked perfect without almost any scratches whatsoever and their was slight carbon build up inside but that was it eveeything looked great. Was wondering what it could be now my friend just suggested it is most likely the crank bearings or something of that sort but i dont know what it could be.

    Drz400s 3x3

    Hey so I just did the 3x3 mod and jd jet on my 2013 drz400s after riding around my neighborhood to warm the bike up and coming back to adjust the fuel screw which is at 1.5 -2 turns out i heard my fan come on after i turned the bike off and left the key in on. Ive never heard my fan come on since i have had the bike about three weeks now. I have the red needle with the clip 3rd down. 155 main? 25 pilot. I used red because im in the Inland northwest where its been 80-90 degrees during the summer but chilly in spring and fall. i am riding at about 2000-4000 elevation. please help did i use the wrong jets? i was able to peel out on asphalt in second going around a corner lol wasnt able to do that before

    PLEASE HELP 1983 YZ250

    hey there I've got a 1983 yamaha yz250. this is my first bike and I'm the third owner. the second owner i bought it off off believes the engine was rebuit because the motor pulls stong he says. by the time i pulled up to his house the bike wouldnt start and he said the carb is really clogged up and its been sitting for 8 months. i managed to get him down pretty low so i bought it. $460 CAD so this is the problem. i got my friend to clean the carb since he knows how and it took him about an hour. we then put it back together. we completely drained the fule and went and got premium fuel and i think we used a 40:1 mix ratio. we also flushed the coolant and replaced that with new coolant. we then tried starting thr bike and it didnt start. we thought maybe the engine was flooded so we took out the spark plug and it was wet. sl we dried out the engine and then tried starting it again. it started after about 30 or 40 kicks while holding full throttle. at this point it was about 9pm and we were tired. we drove it around in first gear killed the bike and gave it two kicks and it started up. we then shut off the fuel while and let the bike shut off so we dont flood the engine again. a week later we go to work on it again cause the idle wasn't the best so we cleaned the carb completely, put it back on and it took about 30 mins of me and my friend taking turns kicking the bike to start it up. once it started up we let it warm up gave it a few revs amd then went onto drive it. im new at dirtbiking so i stalled it. gave it two kicks right away and it started we drove it on my street in first gear only and brought the bike back. i stalled it coming to a stop but then gave it 1 kick right away and it started up right away. i then let it idle for a few mins then i stalled trying to move the bike. i was talking to my friend for about 1 minute and kicked it again and it didnt start. we had to spend another 30 minutes kicking it to start it again. and once we started it we did the same thing. drove it then killed the engine and gave it two kicks right away and it started. after that we killed it waited 1 minute and it wont start again. so basically once the bike is started after an exhausting amount of kicks. u cant shut it off for more than one minute or it won't start again... yes the bike has compression. brand new fuel. brand new spark plug i got it the same day it took alot of kicks to start it. also we tried starting it with the air filter off incase it was dirty but its pretty clean. any help at all will be appreciated and i hope u guys can help me fix this! thanks for your time
