kx100 quick jetting ?

Recommended Posts

Playing with the jetting. On my 100 after doing a top end and a few mods.

Mods are

-vf3 reeds

-pc works pipe

-pc shorty

-phat head with 6cc dome 2 steps up from stock running on c12.

Jetting right now is stock pilot, main bumped to a 142 "may be to big" need to ride it more, all dealer had so im trying it. Stock needle clip 2 from bottom. The plug looks really good so far. My problem is it is always wants to stall at idle. The air screw has little affect so I'm thinking my pilot is to big? Is my thinking right on this?

OK, 1st question, did you adjust your idle?

2nd Q, does it stall in N or when in gear/clutch in? If in gear, may need clutches or adjustment.

I can't see why it won't idle if you adjust it up a bit.

It does seem like it should go in alot more. I need to pull the idle screw out and have a look.

Double check your pilot. Sounds like you got some dirt or something in there. May want to do a cleaning. You said you're running c12. I sell and run race fuel. It's twice as dirty as Diesel. We use very fine filters when pouring from can or from drum. It's unreal how much dirt and junk is in there.

Idea what, pour 5 gal can of C12 into white VP jug. The pour back into can leaving just a very small amount in jug to keep from emptying all the dirt back in can. Then look to see how much garbage is sitting on the bottom. Coming from a 55gal drum is even worse.

      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,
