  1. im having problems kick starting my 1985 honda xr250
    ive got it to start once, but not since then
    rolling start in second starts no problems, but other then that
    any help will be great
    thanks very much

  2. Try changing the spark plug. Also check your choke and decompression lever. Make sure neither are somehow ctuck a little open.
  3. When you say you've only managed to start it once, do you mean it's been in storage for a period of time or you've just bought it?

    Maybe your battery doesn't have enough charge?
  4. no battery in it
    the bloke i bought it off started it fairly easy
    i rang him and he's explained the way he starts it over and over
    but i just cant get it goin
