I built the motor, put it in and it didn't start. I checked the basics like timing marks, spark, carb, compression to many times and still wouldn't start. Last thing I did was I took the reeds off to see the piston, and at BDC couldn't see the top of the it. Do I need a spacer to complete this build?
I am getting fuel to the carb for sure. I also cleaned the in tank filter, and varified flow from the petcock.
How do I tell what year stator I have? My R seems to have alot of mixed matched parts between the 86 and 87-89 so I am still trying to figure out what I have. When I bought it, the guy didn't know anything about it, except what it looked like. He said it was an 87. Go figure.
Wanted to let you guys all know I got the motor started. Upon removal of the flywheel I noticed that the flywheel key was broken. I meant to change the key to begin with so I had a new one just waiting to go in. Slapped it back together and she started up on the second kick. Thanks for the help guys.
Sorry I didn't get back to you guys sooner. I'm in the Navy, and just got off deployment.
I don't have another 250r to compare it to, but I would say it runs really f-in good.
With the combo, I am running a 86 hot rods crank and rod, .06 Wiseco, stock porting, 200 watt stator, Rick's CDI, Jannsen Motosports Supercoil, FMF fatty pipe, stock rejetted carb, V force 3 reeds, and Uni air filter.
