Just got me a nice little xr250r trail bike. Very little miles, only 230 from new. 2004 Model.
Can anyone let me know the correct starting proceedure, it has a decompression lever thingy, and a two stage choke.
I've put new petrol and spark plug in, also taken out over a litre of oil as it had been overfilled by previous owner.
I'm struggling to start when hot, although when running it is very sweet and seems on tune etc.
Any help appreciated.

I also have a 2004 model and it's somewhat different than other XR's I've had (many, many). Cold: (and cold outside), start with choke all the way on, then move it to the first detent once running. When it's warmed up and doesn't cough when rolling the throttle on, turn the choke off. Sometimes I have to move it back and forth to keep it from dying, which is unique to this XR for some reason. Hot: just kick once. If it just stalls out while riding, then kick and kick and kick and kick, etc. The number one big thing to keep in mind, DO NOT GIVE IT ANY THROTTLE WHILE KICKING!!! Since they do have auto-decompression, I never touch that lever. Others may feel differently about that.
