Head torque specs?

Hey guys, im in the process of pulling my head off my 09 kx250f to change the intake valves.

I was wondering if someone could help me out letting me know on the torque specs for the head and the cams for when I am ready to re-install as I dont have a service manual?




Steve, you can get a digital manual for less than the price of a meal and download it today! First thing you should do. :rolleyes:


Having razzed you about that:


Remember to replace your head bolt washers to prevent leaks.


Head Bolts = 36 ft-lb (if the same as 2011-2012)

Sequentially Tighten like this 1-2-3-4

1 4

3 2


Camshaft cap bolts = 87 in-lb NOTE!!! INCH pounds, not foot pounds

Sequentially Tighten like this 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8

5 7

1 3

4 2

8 6

36ft pounds for head is on the 06-08 kx250f as well, and again 86 inch Pounds on cam caps

      2015 Kawasaki KX250f - 20 hours
      As close to new as I'd imagine you'd get! I bought the bike brand new, I'm older and have taken extremely good care of this bike. Very little use and is COMPLETELY stock - everything is original. 
      Comes with the title, original book and map couplers for the fuel injection.
      $4700 - cash

      Just thought maybe everyone could post up there youtube channels an we could all help eachother out by subscribing to one another.
      Heres mine ill sub back asap.
      This has been fun in other sections of TT, so I'll start the thread here and see if we can keep it going.
      Let us know what kind of mods, fixes, changes, etc.., you performed today, or just general fun you had with, your KX250F.
      I'll start with.. I installed a correct for my weight Race Tech shock spring, along with a Pivot Works shock spring thrust bearing. Also cleaned out all the nasty yellow plastic/wax crap that passes for grease in the lower shock bearing, and re-lubed it with Bel Ray waterproof.

      Time for a top end on my bike, just wondering if there are any alternative Valve springs i can use. I have PC cams and $400 for just the springs and retainers is alil costly at the moment.
