'93 KX250 power

Recommended Posts

i have a 92 kx-250 i bought and also have a 2002-Suzuki 400-e and the kx has enough power that i call no traction,its a handful and i just love it on the track,i might be wrong but i think i read some were 36hp.

The 92/93 Kawasaki Service Manual states (52.8hp converted) at 8500rpm, 36.4lbs-ft of torque at 7500rpm! I was impressed with these #s. When I ride it I'm sure its pretty close as it pulls hard and I'm a heavier guy. It sometimes scares me, which is cool! :thumbsup:

Well I've always favored the KXs. I still enjoy the V-Force but the KX250 is a blast. I guess I like the best of both worlds :thumbsup::thumbsup:

I had a 93 kx 250 and I thought it was an excellent bike.Bottom end a tad weak but not bad at all,the midrange was strong with a nice hit to it,and the top end would pull and pull no matter how much you revved it ,it still would pull.great bike your stoked.

      I have a problem with my stage 2 exhaust cam on my rmz whenever I kick it over the exhaust cam likes to stop at the lift unless I put it at tdc or kick it really slow it runs fine when it starts and I have played around with the shims right now all the valves are shimed and I have checked the timing everything’s to spec it just gets stuck at the exhuast I’m pretty sure it’s something to do with too much compression I probally will end upbuying stock cams but wanted to see if anyone knows how to fix this first

      I recently acquired a 1990 KDX200. The bike runs reasonably well for it's age. The first ride over 30 min the gearbox oil started overflowing into the airbox (overflow hose is routed to airbox). The oil that overflowed and the oil in the gearbox are an odd shade of dark forest green. The oil appeared to be overfilled slightly which explains the overflow. What I don't understand is the weird dark blueish greenish gray color of the oil.  I believe the PO used motul 10w40 ester gearbox oil because he gave me a half used gallon. I use Motul 710 2t oil which is blue, and run green coolant in the radiator. I drained the gearbox oil and there was a nice little clump of dark gray metalic paste on the magnetic drain plug, which should explain the gray hue. What I do not understand is the greenish blue hue. Anyone know what in the heck is going on with this old horse?
      The pic shows a sample of my drained oil. When held up to the light it turns more of a green color. Oil still feels slick as can be.

      I am wondering how a kx125 will do at at Glaims. I am 14 years old 5 foot 4 inches  and 100 pounds. I will have a paddle tyre in the back too.

      will a clutch basket from a 98kx250 fit a 96kx250? How about the carb also?

      I have a new cylinder that i bought to rebuild my 1993 kawasaki kx250 with, because the old cylinder was destroyed. The guy said the cylinder is overbored a little but never gave us numbers. The new one i bought came with a piston thats been used and i would like to replace. I believe the piston that came with the cylinder is the correct size, but it very well could be off and i have no way of knowing. So how do i properly measure the cylinder bore, and how do i use this measurement to find what size piston I need to get?
       
      thanks,
      Kaelan
