What I've found is that the bike will start and run if I tighten the fuel screw and pull the choke all the way out. It will then die as soon as I put the choke in (even if the bike is warm). When I loosen the fuel screw to richen the mixture (doing what the choke does, right?) it won't start at all. I really need some help here.
Sounds like the piolet jet is still plugged or too small, air screw should be about 1-1 1/2 out, Is the choke a plunger style?If you don't have another p jet, try to use stripped wire to make sure the jet is all clean and open, use carb cleaner to blast the hole the jet goes into then brake clean to rinse...keep at it, you will get it...
Jets are clean. What I just remembered is that it never got re-jetted after moving to oregon (350 ft) from utah (4,500 ft). If it got re-jetted by the guy who had it there then I definitely need to, right?
I would say yes,Does the owners manual give stock carb specs?other wise, what are the ones in there now?I would go up at least 1or2 on piolet,clip on needle in middle, that should get it to start and run, BUT before all that what does the book call for stock? or what's in it now?
I'll check it out. At the moment (literally 30 seconds ago) I got it to start using the choke, but if I put it on full choke, then it vibrated enough to move the bike a couple feet while on the center stand. When I left it barely choked, it still sounded terrible, but I got it to warm up. It died when I took the choke off even when it was warm.
If it needs the choke on to keep running then it's lean, IS the piolet clean??run stripped wire through all holes or replace,I would put 1 or 2 sizes bigger in and test, jot down what sizes are in the carb when your in there and let me-us know...
Do you have a # that I could call you and talk, I mostly get on here every morning and then check later in afternoon, I have adds and have to reply sometimes. So you have it running, does it idle? if you give it throttle and hold it will the engine stay steady at the raised setting?
Sorry for being unclear. What I meant by running it was holding down the electric starter. The engine would turn over, and then nothing. Yesterday when I let it rest and then tried again, it started right up. This morning, it won't start at all. My number is 541-231-6692.

Hi guys, any tips on changing the oil on a 18 250sxf? The drain bolt edges are a little rounded from the previous owner and I'm unable to get a socket in with the frame being so close. Any advise will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
I want to inspect/replace my idler gear before anything happens. I’ve read that some 2019s might actually have the correct 6001 gear. To see this all I have to do is remove the clutch cover (not the case) correct?
if I do have the 6000 gear and need to replace it...is there a step by step...
a shop near me had a 2019 350 XCF for 1750$ discounted. 1000$ from them and 750 from KTM. The rebate ended and its back up to only 1000$ off and ive been told KTM never puts out rebates for january. The guy I am going to buy from keeps telling me hes pretty sure more rebates will come in...
Trying to remove the dogbone linkage on a 2019 350 XCF. There is a nut on the left side and a bolt on the right side and both are super tight. Do I just loosen the left side nut and then tap it out from the left? Do I leave the nut alone and loosed the bolt head on the right side. Do I do both?
