Your fuel was getting stale and your battery was probably weak from sitting so long. A good battery is needed for proper ignition and spark on these bikes. Plus the battery runs the fuel pump, so it is really a major part of the whole thing. Next time you leave it sit that long run some fuel conditioner through the engine and leave the rest in the tank and leave it full. Put your battery on a battery tender charger so it stays in good shape while sitting. Put some fresh fuel in it and go for a nice long ride. It'll be fine after you run it and get that injector cleared out and battery charged up fully.

charge or replace your battery and you'll likely be fine. Fuel will probably be fine.

yes is true my battery was a litle weak, and the start engine was a litle slow, but finally started, tnx for the advice, next time i ´ll disconnect one cable of battery or just charge it with 12v charger.

You don't quite understand:
Your WR-250R ain't your car or truck, and it won't take too kindly to just being parked for 6 months.
You're most likely not gonna' just walk up, put the key in, and ride away like you rode it just the day before.

And, yeah, what you've experienced is very common when the bike is just parked and that's it.

As suggested, you should put fuel stabilizer in the gas and ride the bike for a few kilometers so that treated fuel reaches the end of it's path.
The battery needs to be kept charged because it will run down 10 times faster than your car battery since it's 10 times smaller.
Keeping it hooked up to one of the automatic battery chargers is the best way to do this.

I'd also service the air filter after a long layover like that - you may be surprised at how rodents love to make a nest in the weirdest places.
The bike won't run too well with 5 pounds of fluffy house insulation and mattress stuffing jammed into the airbox.

I went to Wal Mart and saw a Schumacher Battery Tender for about $20. I went home, read reviews and went back and bought one. I have been using it whenever I am not riding and have never had a problem. Comes with the adapter to install on the battery so it is an easy setup/use. Very similar to the Battery Tender brand but costs less. I think it has a two year warranty.

I don't where you might find it but again was less than the big name brand and has the 2 year warranty for $20.

Also, put your bike up on stands to prevent tyres getting flat spots.
