Subject: WR not starting! Thu Mar 21, 2019 2:00 pm
After sitting in the garage for 3 months, my 2016 WR250R won't start. Has battery power. Last year it did this & cost me $700 to "fix" @ Yammy shop, they said it was "gummy valves"....which is basically unheard of in this bike. So what to do....NEVER taking it back to that shop! Do I drain tank & start with fresh gas? HELP!?
OK. I cleaned out the air box, (spiderwebs, dust) used an ether starter spray & fresh gas & she lit up. ALL GOOD for now! THX!

I know you wrote the bike has battery power, but, was the battery on a battery charger during the three months of no use?
Look inside the airbox. Any rodent nest?
Draining the old gasoline and putting in some fresh stuff can only help.
