He guys. I have a 85 honda 250r atc. I was riding last weekend and ran out of gas. I put more gas in it now it doesn't want to start. I must have kicked it 100 times and even tried pushing it off. Still nothing. It has good compression, good spark, but nothing. I even tried spraying carb cleaner directly into the carb while i was kicking it. Nothing still. Could someone please help me. I need it back running for a trail ride next week that me and friends have been planning for a while. Thanks

If it's got good spark it should have fired on the eather.I'm thinking it may have fouled the plug. put a new plug in before you do that take a straw and dip it in your gas put a couple drops in cylinder then kick it if it fires then cuts off you may need to clean carb.

How much Gas did you put in it? Make sure you put enough in. All the 2 smokes I've had need MORE than just a little Gas in the tank.

Also, are you sure it's getting fuel? did you pull the hose off to make sure?

Sounds like you may have sucked some crap from the bottom of your tank into the carb and plugged it up. But it still should have fired off the ether. Hmm, have you checked your reeds?

edit: also on my blaster, the regular and reserve fuel intakes inside of the tank work like filters also, that might be plugged, if you're not getting fuel from the petcock pull it and maybe clean those out.

ok, i just put a couple drops of gas on the cylinder, then put the spark plug back in, kicked it, and it back fired. does that mean that it is the carb? could it be bad gas? the gas seems to be good though. anymore suggestions?

Could be a sheared flywheel key. That would cause it to be out of time.
