is it possible to check the valves on a 07 without removing the motor mount?

That thing is a real PITA to remove especially the bottom bolt. I don't think I can get the cover off though without removing the mount.

i tried but never worked ou to good, i just remove the 2 bolts and loosed the other one and sneek it out.i've heard of some people doin it but i wasnt able to for some reason.

ya, some people claim to be able to do it, but I've tried and wasn't able to do it. But with a socket extension and normal wrench's its easy and fast to take off or at least loosen the engine mount brackets to take the cover off. I don't remember it taking more than a couple minutes to take off and put back on every time I've done it.

you can get lucky.. some bikes you can others you can't. no harm in tryng it first.

yeah the first time i did it i had to take off the 2 top bolts first then had to use a open ended wrench to get at the bottom bolt. then the torque wrench wasnt working right since i had to completely tighten the bottom bolt first since it's impossible to tighten it once the middle bolt is in.

i need to shim i checked clearance at 3.5 hrs and one intake was at .003 and now the bike has 5.2 hrs not riding again till I fix it.

I get mine off my 07 with out removing the mounts... There is a trick to doing it and I never remember exactly the right way and fiddle for about 15-20 seconds and it normaly get it off.. It's a lift from the rightride rotate counterclockwise while lifting slightly.. None the less it comes off..

crazy, I've herd of it being done, but I have never been able to use the technique, I'll give it a try next time

yeah dude ive seen my mechanic get mine off without removing the motor mount brace. but he said a few choice words in the process

i have an 06 and i do it all the time you have to turn the valve cover a little once you pull up on it. maybe the 07 is different

it's a major pita.

thats for sure..

you gotta get the cover at just the right angle and it comes right out..

      Alright so I just rebuilt my 2012 kx250f complete rebuild. I put the motor back in the bike get everything hooked up and ready to go it takes a few kicks at first (obviously) but after it starts it sat and idled just fine for a while then it stalled out. Tried to start it again wouldn't start I took the spark plug out of it it looked good I was dark and wet. I cleaned it then put the spark plug back in it it took a few kicks but started right back up again then after a while it stalled out again and now I can't get it to start again!? Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you guys and girls for reading and hopefully for the help!!!

      As close to new as I'd imagine you'd get! I bought the bike brand new, I'm older and have taken extremely good care of this bike. Very little use and is COMPLETELY stock - everything is original. 
      Comes with the title, original book and map couplers for the fuel injection.
      $4700 - cash

      Time for a top end on my bike, just wondering if there are any alternative Valve springs i can use. I have PC cams and $400 for just the springs and retainers is alil costly at the moment.
      This has been fun in other sections of TT, so I'll start the thread here and see if we can keep it going.
      Let us know what kind of mods, fixes, changes, etc.., you performed today, or just general fun you had with, your KX250F.
      I'll start with.. I installed a correct for my weight Race Tech shock spring, along with a Pivot Works shock spring thrust bearing. Also cleaned out all the nasty yellow plastic/wax crap that passes for grease in the lower shock bearing, and re-lubed it with Bel Ray waterproof.
