ok bought the bike dec 23 havent rode it yet...
been starting every other day yesterday it started fine today it turns over strong but doesnt start there wasnt much gas in it so i added some gas still wont start
after cranking it for 8 seconds i could smell gas so i waited a min then turned the choke off and cranked again thinking it was flooded still nothing
waited again then set the choke on and cranked still wouldnt start turned on the primer for a few seconds to get some gas to the carbs still wouldnt start

any ideas?? low gass?=fuel filter? is there a lift pump for the gas ?
i mean shouldnt be anything to serious it was running fine yesterday
recently it was getting a little harder to start first crank it would start then shut off
thought it was due to the cold weather .. mabey theres more to it ??

2010 ninja 250r 4600kms

i dont know much about the bike
service information unknown

fixed, however...???

ty everyone for your comments had some nice weather today so i pulled the plugs and changed them bike runs ......one more problem to resolve being new to motorcycles and bought this one used with out a manuel ... well this is the problem the bike wont run with the choke turned all the way off turned on it runs fine i wait for it to warm up usually 3k rpm for 5 mins then i back the choke off a bit down to 1800 rpm's sounds like its running good im not sure what its supposed to idle at or if theres a idol screw when i turn the choke all the way off it just dies .. i can keep it going with the throttle so.... must be a adjustment somewhere any information is greatly appricated.
