Usflag 1998 rm 250 not starting w/o starter fluid

the rm 250 won't start unless i put starter fluid in but once i do that and start it up it will continue to run. It will also start first kick after while its still warm. I'm getting very frustrated haha what could be the problem? should I rebuild the carb?

also could the kick start be possibly slipping within the bike so its not getting enough compression to get the mix going but will get enough to start the starter fluid?

Yes, a carb cleaning is in order, and don't use starter fluid any more! That washes the oil off the cylinder and you will be buying a top end kit soon.....Jerry
