I fixed the KLX 140 bog.....I think.

Recommended Posts

Maybe some of you who have tried to fix the common KLX 140 bog will read this. My sons KLX 140 had the off idle or 1/8 throttle bog. I tried everything other than replacing stuff in order to fix the bog but nothing worked. Very frustrating. I couldn't figure out if it was running to rich or to lean but I finally came to the conclusion throughout all my testing it was running to rich in the specific fuel curve which was causing the bog and no jetting was going to fix it simply because some carbs are limited in jetting options and adjustability. So in a last ditch effort I changed the spark plug from a 7 to a hotter 6. So far so good. The bog is no longer, and it seems to pull harder too. Problem though is that I believe its now running lean on top so I'm going to try a 105 main.

      I have a "new" KLX 140 for sale 
      I say new because it has less than 2 hours on it. 
      I bought this bike new in Brandon for my wife, she is not interested. 
      This bike is the small wheel version, low seat height, electric start. 
      Great beginner bike !

      Hello friends, 
      I have seen some discussion about DRZ400 (DRZ400S, etc) vs whatever other bike, when it comes to power. My riding buddy and I threw down some good old drag races this morning on the way back home after some adventure in the forest. I own/ride a 2002 KLX300R. We ran two heats, one on gravel, then one one asphalt. Who do you think won? See below:

      Hello friends, 
      I recently put a new Kenda Trakmaster II rear tire on my KLX300R. I'm loving the improved grip and overall performance. Here's a little video I put together of the tire in action...

      Hello friends, 
      Just thought I'd share a short summary video of a 154-mile adventure ride my buddy and I did last week. Northeastern AZ has an unbelievable amount of rural trail/road to explore. My KLX300R averaged 71.5 MPG on this ride.
