    kx100 1997 oil change problem

    please anybody ??
  3. the kx 100 i have has had the oil change plug under the engine welded up by previous owner and i have been changing the engine oil with a large sringe and tubing pushed around the clutch through the oil fill hole this seems to work well but what should i use to to flush/clean the engine with and how to get every last drop out of it could i flush engine and turn it on its head to get the last drops out or will this cause other problems.i know i should just drill and tap the engine casing as the welding job is spot on but not sure of the drill tap size and dont want to mess up and have to buy new cases. thanks in advance.

    kx100 missing at top end

    my son has a 97 kx100 which blew a head gasket so i replaced it and threw in some new rings aswell while the head was off but when riding now at full throttle in top gear it starts to missfire and sounds like it wants to cut out,what could be causing this is it a minor detail such as filter plug etc or does it need a rebore and new piston as this only happens in top gear.the plug is a br9eix

    yz125 rear shock gone solid please help

    so should the swing arm move easily with the shock removed,if so can i change the bearings myself or do i need special tools to do the work.
  11. hi there i have a 96 yz125 everything was fine went on holiday for 2 weeks to florida came back took the bike out and the rear suspension was solid no movement at all:excuseme: .i have removed the shocker from the bike should i be able to compress it against the floor just by pushing down on it,cos it wont also with the shock removed how much movement should there be on the swing arm up and down cos there is very little dont know if swing arm has seized up aswell.does it sound like the shock is at fault (needing service)or the whole lot i dont want to put alot of money into it as i have just got an 02 yz125 and will be selling it as soon as its fixed. thanks in advance.

    Oil leaking from engine please help

    Thanks Markopolo400 very much i knew i could count on one of you to shed some light on this,this forum is very good source for info and members very helpfull,if i would have taken the bike to a dealer they would have made it into a big deal and charged me a fortune thanks again Markopolo400
  13. Hi there my son has just purchased a 99 yz125 which has oil coming out from behind the gear selector i have looked in the manual and it is a seal that has gone but how do i change it,can i just pick it out and drive in a new one or does it all have to be taken apart.Anybody out there that can shed some light on this for me or write me up a little walkthrough please he got the bike at a good price and it would be a shame if it needs to go in the garage before hes even been on it, thanks in advange
