  1. Hi All, Haven't been on here for a while. Basically I have a 1997 KX100, which I've had as a bit of a ongoing project. Anyway, its been sat there for probably almost 9 months now, and I decided to start working on it again. As far as I can remember it was running well when I put it away. So tried to kick start it, no luck - I knew the chances of it starting were slim so I gave it fresh fuel, cleaned the spark plug and clean the carb. This time it started, but it wouldn't idle, and when you revved it seemed to bog and not open out. So I thought - Pilot Jet. Stripped Carb backdown and found the Pilot Jet was clogged, so I cleaned it out, and thought that should solve it. Nope, no luck! So I turned the fuel tap off, and ran it for a few seconds, waiting for the fuel to run out I assume - and would you believe it, it ran perfectly. It idled and revved perfectly with the fuel off. I didn't run it for long, but it definitely seemed to run well. So what's the issue then? Too much fuel being fed? I should point out all Carb Jetting is stock, and the pilot air screw is 1 3/8 turns out (standard setting) Many Thanks, James

    Throttle Cable Sticking?

    Basically my TTR 125 isn't idling consistently. One second its idling fine, the next second its revving at a higher RPM, then back down, up, you get the idea Anyway, dome some testing and it looks like its the Throttle Cable Sticking Reason I say this is because when you turn the handlebars to face the right, the idling dies and in fact it will stall. But when the handlebars are facing forward or to the left, the idling is random. Is it the Throttle Cable sticking? As I'd expect it just to change RPM when turning the handle bars not when they are still. But how does that explain when the handlebars face the right? Many Thanks! James
  3. Hi Guys, I am having a little difficulty with my bike (1997 KX100). I have gone to fit the right hand crankcase cover back on, after I have checked the clutch plates, but I am having difficulty. It says in the service manual to "Turn the clutch release lever toward the rear of the bike when installing the cover". This is obviously so it can fit over the clutch pusher assembly. But the problem is that my Clutch Pusher assembly doesn't stay on the bike on its own (inside the clutch spring holder), is just falls out. I don't really see how it is meant to stay in the clutch spring holder by itself, but judging by the manual it is meant to. So what I did was put the clutch pusher assembly into the right hand crankcase cover, and pull the clutch release cover back so it held the assembly in place. I then fitted the cover onto the bike while holding the clutch release lever back. It seemed to fit on fine. But now the crankcase cover is on, the clutch release lever seems to be stuck - ie no movement what-so-ever. I take it there is meant to be movement once the cover is fitted? Or have I made a stupid or silly mistake?! Or is the technique I used to fit it incorrect? Any help would be very, very much appreciated! Many Thanks, James

    Thanks for your suggestion! May I ask why you chose that make and model? Thanks and ATB

    Using a Torque Wrench on Clutch Springs

    Ok, Thanks guys! I will buy a new torque wrench! Which size should I go for : 1/4" or 3/8"? Thanks and ATB

    450

    Hi Guys, I am thinking of getting a 450cc 4 stroke quad. Which make + models would you recommend? It would be used for racing most likely. Thanks and ATB James
  8. Hi Guys, I could do with a little help. In my manual, it says to tighten the clutch springs to 9.5NM, but my Torque Wrench goes from 12NM-68NM. Unfortuently, it won't go low enough as you can see. Do I have to buy a new torque wrench which will be able to go lower amounts? I will also need to do the Right Hand Crankcase Cover to 9.5NM! Could I say tighten too 21.5NM, then loosen it off 12NM, so it would give me 9.5NM or would that not work or put unnecasary strain on the bolts? Thanks and ATB James

    *NAPF* Jet Needle

    But the problem is that they just call it a NAPF Needle - which isn't the type of code I want! Thanks!

    *NAPF* Jet Needle

    Just found this information in another thread : And you can also replace the stock triple taper needle w/ a straight taper needle if you want to smooth out the upper band hit that the YZ85 is famouns for, but you would also need to go up two sizes larger on the main because these needles have a sharper taper angle. The SUDCO equivalent to the stock NBKF is the JJF clip#3. NBLF equivalent is the JJG #3. With these straight taper, you'd want to start w/ a 150 main to start w. I wound up w/ a 148 main The pilot size wound up being 50, which I thought was a bit large. That sort of helps me, as the people I am interested in buying the Jet Needle off, use the code system the same as that (3 Letters) : http://www.allensperformance.co.uk/data-n427-46.html So it looks like I'll have to find out what the 'NAPF' Needle is in a three letter code like the ones I quoted above?! Thanks and ATB James

    KX100 Jetting

    I don't have any information, but the previous owner said he changed the Jets over, and that was that - I don't know what Jets, but I have to assume he changed all the Jets that was possible. I am assuming in my carb that the Main Air Jet is fixed, as I can't seem to find any information about getting a different sized jet for it. Thanks for you help William, but I just had to make sure!

    "NAPF" Jet Needle

    I have done a bit of researching and have found something out : On the 1997 Jet Needle there is a code with a letter, then two numbers then a letter : Obviously that is the type of code I want! On the 2003 Jet Needle (For the newer carb), there isn't the same code, it just says 'NAPF' : Any advice on the codes then? Thanks and ATB James
