fork oil capacity 95 kx 125

I just bought a 95 kx 125 and need to replace the fork seals and oil. I bought bel ray 5w fork oil. does anyone know how much oil each fork takes?

Thanks in advance.


Well I ordered the clymer off of eBay but won't get probably till the weekend but I have a riding trip on Wednesday and would really like to have the kx ready so I can test it. I have the new seals in but I need to know how much oil to put on each fork and i think someone could do me the favor and do a quick check on they're manual.


hey just saw your post im looking at my manual now. for the 95 the oil capicity is504-512ML...or 17 -17.3 U.S oz.

if you need any other specs just let me know

Thanks for the reply 97kx125. Good thing u told me because I went to and they only have the specs from 96-up and I followed that and had put 620 ml in them but I took the excess out with a big syringe I have.

Just one more question though does it say how many clicks in the stock forks?there set at 13 right now but the manual tell you how many clicks is stock?

Thanks for helping me out.

no prob. The compression adjustment is 8. and the Rebound is 10. Those are the standard settings

thanks 97kx125 youve been of great help.

good luck changing the seals. i found the video more helpfull than the book for changing the seals

Well got The seals put in but when I got the forks apart on top of the push rod (long skinny tube in middle of spring) I think is it's name, there is a Metal piece about 2-3 inches long with a hole in the center kind of looks like a big carb jet that goes on top of it with a skinny side and a fatter side, well I didn't pay attention when I pulled it out on either fork and don't know which side goes down on the inside the pushrod skinny or fat. Both ways it goes in and I don't know if it will be a big problem if I put them in the wrong way. Wonder if you remember which way they were on your forks 97kx125...

i think the side with the flat marking goes on top

Ok will do. and now for the last question, im taking my carb apart for cleaning and to adjust the float height does your manual give you the float height for the 95 kx125?

it doesnt give an exact number. the only numbers i am seeing are .630 and .039 inches

      Hi all,
      I have a 2004 Kawasaki kx250 that died suddenly on me the other day. all i can get it to do is backfire every once in awhile. Tested the resistance and everything of the magneto and stator with a multi-meter and all is good.  Coil is new oem Kawasaki the reeds are brand new vforce and the top end and carb have been completely rebuilt.  key on crank is intact and all the timing marks are lined up. I hooked a timing light to it and spun the motor over really fast and found that it is sparking way to late.  The service manual says that it is supposed to fire 14 degrees before TDC but it is sparking way after TDC.  Im thinking its a fried CDI box since its the only thing i wasnt able to check.  Any help would be appreciated

      Hi all,
      I have a 2004 kx 250 2 stroke and it wont start.  it only backfires.  I was out riding it one day and came up to a stop so the bike was just idling and it started to try and die so i revved it up a few times then let it die and now it wont start back up.  It only pops or backfires when you kick it.  Its getting good spark and i just put a brand new plug and coil in it. I took the reeds apart and they look like they're brand new.  It was running great before so i dont know what happened.  Im thinking it could be a fuel problem even tho the plug is a little wet if you take it out after a bunch of kicking.  Any help would be greatly appreciated

      Alright, found three bikes all located where i live in Texas. I know they're all very different, but if you could tell me what you think each bike is worth, and which one would be the best deal. Thanks.
      Notes: Both 2 strokes have new top ends. I think the front brake lever is broken on the kawasaki.
      KX250 2002 $800-$1000?

      YZ125 2000 $1250

      KTM 400SX 2002 $1200

      So I'm at a bit of a cross roads, I currently own a 06 rm250 and I love it. I also have a 02 kx250 which I'm selling with intent to buy a newer two stroke. I can't afford a newer ktm and the older ones aren't that great and kawasaki never impressed me. so I'm stuck between 06 yz250 and 05 cr250. I've heard the yz and rm after 06 are almost the same bike just the Suzuki handles better and the Yamaha has better suspension. So I'm not sure if I wanna buy carbon copy of my bike with slight differences. That's why I'm interested in a cr250 I heard the 02+ models RC valves are shit garbage but was mostly fixed in the 05-07 models. I ride at a track and at some bogs down the road from me. So from people who have owned both, what would you recommend. I know the cr is known for a hard hitting power band which I enjoy since im an aggressive rider. Should i just see which deal comes my way first.
