2001 kawasaki kx125 help

Recommended Posts

Recently bought a nice clean kx125 starts first kick everytime has 5 hours on rebuild pretty good bike for the price. I went to ride today started up fine I let it warm up and started going and the bike started to rev by itself without me giving it gas. I pulled in the clutch and it was still revving I downshifted into first and then it was still doing it so I went to N and shut it off. I went to start it back up and the kick starter would grab at the top rub In the middle and catch at the bottom. I've never had this problem before. I finally got it started took it home and does the same thing but won't start. I took the kickstarter gear out and noticed a nice rub spot on the case where the teeth of the gear is. Kickstarter looks fine can anyone give me any tips or advice thanks?

Make sure that your throttle cable is not getting caught on anything. Different lengths will cause it to that. Also make sure you give the carb a real good cleaning.
