Only starts with choke and won’t idle without choke on

Recommended Posts

Got this TXT 249 on Saturday, not sure of year... I am new to trials bikes... bought it blind at an online auction as a learner bike and a bit of a project... not had a proper look into the issue yet but was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions or pointers as to what it could be... any help/advice would be appreciated.

Cheers

Looks like a 99 model. I'd drain the fuel and put fresh (2 stroke) in and also strip the carb as mentioned and clean air filter and spark plug. Those bikes were bulletproof

So after being away for a week I can back on Sunday and cleaned the carb and air filter, put it back together and it took a while to start after kicking it repeatedly, eventually it fired up and idled on choke nicely but still wouldnt run without it, then it wouldn’t fire up again so I left it to have a think, came back to it this evening to see if it would start, it wouldn’t so I checked the spark plug, didn’t get a spark from it at all but also noticed there was a bit of oil on the Spark plug, what possible reasons are there for oil on a spark plug, saw something to do with gaskets etc??? Cheers
