KX85/100 Longer Throttle & Clutch Cables?

Recommended Posts

I need to put bar risers (1 inch) on my son's 2007 big wheel 85 and just looking last night it seems like it would need longer cables. I believe that the cables for the 85 and 100 are the same (which makes sense). Are there longer ones you can get or can I get ones from a different model? Anyone know for sure? I assume that if the ends were the same I could use whatever I can find. Like I said I haven't really dug into it yet but thought maybe someone had done this previously.

Thanks

You might be able to just reroute the cables you have. I do know that Motion Pro will make custom lengths. Can't help you with a direct replacement.

I'll look at it further tonight. I figure there should be an easy fix since there's not too much info on this site. I'll check out Motion Pro's website too. Thanks

you can get them from motion pro and terry cable. I rerouted the clutch cable under # plate bolt and the throttle goes from throttle , stays on right side of head stock and across the center of frame under gas tank. Have done them on 85 and 100 both have worked fine for years.

It looks like I should be able to re-route the throttle cable but I think I'll need a longer clutch cable. We're running EVO bars (Reed/Henry bend) which has an adapter that raises them about 1/2 inch and then I trying to add a 1" spacer. I'd like to get the Terminator cable Sappers suggested but I'm afraid maybe that won't be enough? I just don't want to have to do it twice and wait longer to get it setup the way I want.

Just email Motion Pro and tell them how much taller the bars will be. This is what they do.

Probably the best way to go:thumbsup:

      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,
