good afternoon,
I have this 2000 rm125. bought it from a guy that said he rebuilt the top end. and that there wass a carbonator issue. it started and ran for like 10 seconds then died. so I bought it for only $400. I cleaned out the carb and tried to tune it but i can only get it to run for about 20 seconds now. when I start it about 3 times the kickstart is super hard to kick sometimes locks up totally. I cant figure out what is wrong.

Carbonator issues? I likes my Dr. Pepper carbonated. If I was a detective I would suspect the top end rebuild as the first culprit. Get your manual, tear it apart and make sure its "rebuilt" correctly. If every thing checks out, then proceed to your kick starter rachet. Keep at it and the truth will soon be revealed.... 9dd7d1ec53dd8444b0b6e0a3e4764afb.jpg
