Recommended Posts

Got a leak I can’t really pinpoint happened after I used my choke to start my bike after a while. Any help appreciated

Maybe from the power valve? I know it can get pretty messy in there and if your gasket is bad it might leak that splooge.

What gasket do you speak of?

I'm of course more familiar with my YZ but

commonly 2-stroke MX powervalve housings are vented to atmosphere

and any excess unburnt premix that accumulates in there can easily drip out.

 

In the event your KX by design isn't vented or, the tube has a blockage (pinched, caked with mud etc.)

if the powervalve shaft / rod end seal is worn, it can allow the excess oil to drip 

into the PV linkage cavity where your leak seems to be coming from.

 

The seal is part number #92049 in the fiche below:
