Yes it is supposed to be plastic. More gas or less clutch, you need to find the happy medium.

The OEM ignition cover is plastic. The clutch cover most certainly is not.

It is made out of magnesium and "feels" different than aluminium and more like plastic if you want to look at it like that.

It's magnesium?? My old husky was, but I didn't know Kawasaki's were. I thought it was aluminum.

If true, then don't anyone weld on that cover!!! I had to weld on my Husky cover and it required a special method so it wouldn't combust.

It's just the little quick clutch cover that is Mag the larger cover-water pump cover is still aluminum. Also as for taking off just give it more gas and use the clutch. IMO the 99-01 KX has too tall a first gear and as a few of you know I put the older 94-98 first gear in mine.

      I am trying to find out if the water pumps for the KX250'S will interchange. Seems most parts from 96- 07 will. Can anybody help me out? My plan, put a Boyesen Supercooler for a "05" model on to my 99. Will this work? Any help is appreciated! Thanks

      So i know my way around a crab pretty well and i'm very familiar with them i just can't seem to get the kawi dialed in it seems to have this unging/erratic rev thing going on when i pull in the clutch and i slow down so i'm looking for the correct carb adjustment for the bike it didn't seem to do it when it was warm out but now that it's in the 30's forties it's doing it my elevation here in upstate ny is 295' it's been around upper 30's lower 40's but i'd like to tune it so it's ready for summer because i don't ride it much in the cold so i'd like to tune it so it would be best in 70-90 degree weather since that's pretty common around here So could someone please help me out I need to know what the fuel to air mixture is needle position and proper jetting thank you
