I rebuilt my friends 01 WR250 earlier this year. It was a bear to start the first day as well. I kicked until my foot hurt. We ended up pushing it to get it started (hold the clutch and decomp lever, dump clutch, dump decomp). Starts after 1-2 kicks now that it's broken in.

Try about 2 turns out to start with. If you have to go more than 3 to 3 1/2 you need a bigger pilot jet. Did you open the carb drain screw to make sure the bowl filled up?
Does anyone know the stock settings for air/fuel screw and for the idle knob?

Well another day of kicking with no positive results. I posted another thread looking for help...
I just want to hear and ride this build. I am in high hopes it comes soon...

Did you check if there was gas in you carb ?

I just started my 1998 WR400 after a piston and ring replacement. The bike was bought in pieces so, it has been some time since it ran. When I went to start it I gave it a couple of throttle twists to prime the carb and pulled the choke out. It would not start so, I held the decomp lever and "cleaned out" the cylinder for a few kicks. Still no good but it tried so I pushed the choke in. Still no luck so, I held the decomp lever and "cleaned out" the cylinder again and used the hot start. It started on the first kick. 100+ degrees and high humidity at 8:00pm in Memphis made the bike "think" it was too hot I guess. I hope this helps.

I don't have anything to offer, except to let you know that I'm pulling for ya'.
Good Luck man, I know you've worked your butt off on this bike, so I hope you don't have to mess around with it too much before it decides to start up.

What are the hints for the hill trial?
Dump Clutch or Clutch and decomp at the same time?
