Leaking radiator

Recommended Posts

After a weekend full of riding ive noticed that i have a slow leak in the bottom of my right radiator. just curious as to any ideas people might have to patch it up? until ive saved for a new set of oversize radiators from ebay

$175 for the set new also while im on the subject of cooling would a silicone hose kit for 04 kx 250 fit on my 98?

Mylers repairs motorcycle rads. I think about $50. You might want to read up on those oversize rads, just because they are bigger doesn't mean they cool better. There's alot of right side rads on Ebay, any 94-02 125/250 will work. Pre 99's don't have the provision for the small brace.

i live in oz its going to cost me atleast 100 because all i can find on ebay are from the u.s. i can get the pair for 175 from here . the tank looks to be glued on with some kind of epoxy any idea of what it is ? the leak is down the bottom of the right tank so if i can get some similar glue i might be able to patch it up.Also would rad hoses from a 04 fit a 98 i like the look of having green hoses

      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,
