1996 kx250 engine noises

Recommended Posts

I have a 96 kx 250 that has been making this sound since I got it. The sound is like a rattling deep in the engine but when you pull in the clutch it stops. I've heard from many people that the kx is just a noisy engine im starting to believe it because it has ran like this for a long time...thanks for any opinions

Man a lot of the older Kx's made some weird noises. Could be the kips system. My kdx always makes a noise at idle due to the kips system. Try using 15-40 oil. Really helps with the rattle. And also check the bolts on the clutch basket also another problem with the old Kx's. Does it stop the noise when u rev it up?

normal sound in a kx.  using a little more trans oil ( i usually go for the full quart) quiets the clutch down a little.
