Cl-cl-cl-CLUTCH

Recommended Posts

My clutch will not work. Again. For like the thousandth time. I finally have my bike all put back together and it's supposed to be bought on Thursday which is tomorrow and the clutch will not work. Me, my friend, his older brother, and their Dad cannot figure it out for the life of us. Everything in the clutch portion is put together correct. We have taken it apart and put it back together by the manual like 5 or 6 times last night and it wouldn't disengage. Am I missing something? Are the plates stuck together? That was our other theory, the bike sat apart for a while but we tried to get them to split and it didn't help. The clutch does not disenage at all. Does anyone have any ideas?

Did you soak the clutch discs in oil overnight before you out it back together? This may be why it is not disengaging?

We went through everything else but soaking it, so I'm doing that to the plates as we speak, hoping to lossen them up. The cable is fine, we have adjusted it many many times. I had the basked out like 100 times yesterday. I actually took the basket out and filed the burrs off because it had one on every edge that a plate was on. It doesn't disengage at all. It stumps me. And it stumps my friend's brother who is a mecahanic and has been working on bikes long before I was born.

One little burr on the inside would stop the first and therefor all the discs/plates from going in.

      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.

      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,
