    2013 KX250F hard to start by kicking but bumps just fine.

    Well guys,she has 30.2 hrs on her now. I went out riding on Sunday and it started right up for most of the day...However there were still instances were the bike would take several kicks to start...I guess its just the way these bikes get after you put some time on them. Nick

    Sometimes when its hot even,it will take several kicks to start.However,at other times it'll start in 1-3 kicks? I'm confused about what this could be.I hope its not the valves already. Thanks for the feedback, Nick

    I don't normally use the "choke" because usually it never needs it.It always starts right up even after sitting for a week or so.I find it unlikely that the valves were out from the factory.Something tells me it could be a plug causing these bad starts from time to time. Thanks, Nick
  6. Hey fellow Kawi guys,my '13 250F with 27 hrs on it is having some trouble starting with the kicker.If it is warm,most of the time it will kick over in 1-3 kicks.However,when sitting or cold it takes numerous kicks and nothing happens.If I bump it first,it seems to start easier as the day goes on.Sometimes it will decide not to start the way it should and takes a while.I hate to say this but could it be the valves already? This bike is almost all woods with some track mixed in.Any advice would be great,I am stumped as to what it could be. Thanks Again Guys, Nick

    2013 ran close to 7hrs with low oil level!

    I use Kawasaki 10w-40 oil in my bike,and my Dad uses it in his 450 as well.In the manual Kawi lists a few prefered oils to use,and the 10w-40 is on that list.IMO I think it is a good oil to use. Nick

    Considering switching to a 2011 KX250F

    KX250F's are very solid machines...very durable! Some owners say that the '11 motor lacks on top-end power,but I don't think its that big of a deal.That being said I ride a '13 KX250F and LOVE it!!! Very reliable,top notch power and I like the ergos at 5ft10. Nick

    I'm pretty sure I still have a ratio rite laying around somewhere from my 2-stroke days . I think the Kawi Gods were watching over me lol! Nick

    I did the oil and oil filter and I did warm the bike up a little before draining it.That was my first mistake measuring with eyes instead of following the tolerences for oil levels.The amount of oil may of been lower or it actually could of been half a quart it drained for about 4 seconds. Nick

    I'll admit it was owner error.The last change I filled the bike up to the specified oil level...But I forgot to re-check the oil level after tilting the bike straight up and down.Which means in the end I was supposed to add more oil but did not.How low is low? The bike had maybe a half quart in it. Nick
  13. Hey Guys,its Nick here once again and I have a couple questions.Anyway I went to drain the oil in my bike,and to my surprise there was next to no oil in the bike...very little at best.I ran it a few times in the woods and I also went to a track and rode open practice for about 3 running hours.The weird thing is,my bike ran strong all day at the track and in the woods.It also sounds perfect no weird noises from the valvetrain ect.The bike starts perfect everytime as well.Which leads me to my question, do you guys think I screwed anything up? My Dad thinks I increased engine wear significantly...We are both shocked that the bike ran that long with a low oil level. So what do you guys think the bike has just over 16 hours on the clock.Is my engine now a time bomb? Or do you think things will be ok? Remember the bike has no loss of power,weird noises or anything it runs like it should. Thanks for any input guys, Nick

    2013 KX250F Filter Skins

    Thanks Midwest and Kawi for your helpful replies.To be honest, I had never thought running a mesh for the air ducts.I will certainly look into pre-filters as riding in mud and sand can get pretty nasty. Thanks again guys, Nick

    2013 KX250F Filter Skins

    I know what you mean,thanks for your reply...I'll probably just run it how it is.My filters actually don't look half bad after rides even in heavy mud.I keep my airbox clean and the filter fresh. Nick
