2000 KX 65 Major Bog issue

Recommended Posts

Here is what I have I purchased a 2000 KX 65 today that has a bog issue. The bike starts great , idles great and revs great but when I rode it, it completely falls on its face and will not get into higher rpm. Most of the time it stalls out. I have adjusted the clutch , it makes a almost humming sound when the engine has a load on it with me on it. I weigh 200 lbs. Also when it is on a stand and I run through the gears it has no problems of hesitation or that humm sound. Just wanted some ideas before I tear the clutch cover off of it. Thanks 86 T

It is for my 5 year old. Even with my weight it still should be able to atleast haul me around with no problem.

I would say if it has good compression then its probablly a jetting issue. You could also pull the reeeds and see if one is cracked. Check your airscrew setting too.

also the weather is around 30 degrees here. I think that may be the problem . Jetting and airscrew

could be jetting. check compression and reeds and all the basics, then start tuning, a filthy plug will do what you desribe as well

      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,
