2000 xr50 wont start
i just got this 2000 xr50 from this guy tonight. when we went to his garage he started it on the first kick and i drove it around and it ran great. then when i got it home i tried to start it and it wont start! i pulled the plug and made sure its getting spark, changed the oil, put fresh gas in it, cleaned the air filter and carb, and still, nothing. i dont know too much about the 50's. what procedure should i go through to try and start it. also sometimes it starts and idles for 3 or 4 seconds then dies.

If it ran fine when you went to pick it up and all you did was haul it home. Your probably just not starting it right. Try this.

Gas ON
Choke ON
Kick it until it starts.

If that doesn't work it may be flooded. then try this:

Gas ON
Choke OFF
Throttle WIDE OPEN
kick it until it starts.

Hope that helps.

Hey macz400, did you ever figure out what the problem was? I have a 2000 xr50r thats doin the same thing. Ive cleaned the carb and jets, new fuel, but wont start and when it does itll only idle for a few seconds. Thanks in advance.
