I cleaned my carb out today all the jets etc...

Put it back on the bike and the bike is now an uteer cont to start:bonk

I have managed to start it by basically opening the throttle as wide as it goes and kicking it through.,It fired up but I had to hold my foot down on the kickstart for a little while to get it going...

when u come to restart it...its proves very hard.,,

any ideas?

Hey, listen to William 1! I had a starting problem on my 02 wr426 and he said don't clean the pilot just put a new one in. If I would have done that right away I would have saved myself a couple days of troubleshooting.
Good Luck...
