Need help!

Recommended Posts

I've recently replaced a radiator hose that was torn. I started my kx 125 and it started leaking lots of radiator fluid from the nuts on my cylinder head. I do have a damaged head gasket but didn't know if that had anything to do with it. If I can't figure it out I'm just gonna take it into a service shop, thanks.

Gasket/O-rings are bad or head not torqued properly. Depends on what your you have since you didn't state it in your post.

 

Most ppl think I'm crazy but my only torque wrench I use on my bikes cost $550. Just see your local Snap-on guy. He'll be happy to make sure you're doing it right.

No they are flanged nuts. The original schematic in Manuel shows flanged nuts. Should I get acorn style ones?

What year is it? I thought most all the bikes came with acorn nuts....but if it shows flanged then that is okay.

Just make sure the crush washers are good and the head seals..Make sure the head studs are fully seated in the jug.
