  1. I have a 2012 kx250f. I was riding at about 10-15 mph around a burm, the tire lost traction and slipped out. It fell on its right side, facing down the burm so the top was lower than the bottom of the bike. I waited about 2-3 min to pick it up and idk why. Now the bike backfires pretty bad and does it constantly. There's also a noticeable power loss in the lower rpm range. The bike doesn't backfire as much in higher rpms. It doesn't backfire at all when in neutral, only in gear. It's still pretty easy to start (started cold in about 35 degree weather in about 2 kicks after not being started for weeks) so I don't know whats up. Any suggestions?

    Kx250f burning oil?

    Ok guys, I changed the oil and it stopped burning. Now I have another problem, though. I was riding about 10 mph, dropped the bike on the right side and left it sitting there for about 2-3 minutes, facing downwards on a burm. So the top of the bike was lower than the bottom. Now, it keeps backfirirng horribly (nonstop) and my friends say that its extremely loud backfires too. there's also a noticeable power loss. when it gets into higher rpms, it doesn't backfire as much and while in neutral, not at all. It only backfires when I put the bike into gear. Any suggestions on what this could be?

    Kx250f burning oil?

    ok guys, I decided to do an oil change on my bike. After the change, I rode the bike around and there was no burning oil. I dont know why, but before the bike would smoke more than a 2 stroke on startup and while being revved hard. Now it doesnt and I can't smell any oil burning off either

    Kx250f burning oil?

    This Saturday I’ll hopefully be able to take apartment the valve system and check the cylinder, just hoping it’s nothing too expensive

    Kx250f burning oil?

    I dont have access to a leak down tester, I was thinking of doing a compression test once and then another with a little oil in the cylinder would that work too The bike also has a lot of compression

    Kx250f burning oil?

    I recently bought a 2012 kx250f. The guy I bought it from said he never adjusted the valves, but the previous owner bought a new engine in 2014. The bike is burning oil (I haven’t had a chance to do an oil change yet so idk how much) but it burns on startup, and when the bike is revved high quickly. It isn’t hard to start, every time I’ve started it it only takes 1 kick. I’ve heard it could be the valve guides, seats, or the piston rings. Any suggestions on what it most likely is?

    RM 125 not running

    I've looked at the needle valve, and it seems to be able to move freely. the rubber tip is completly smooth, and it does not seem ti get stuck when i blow through the gas intake

    RM 125 not running

    No, that is not fixed yet, but idk what is wrong with it. I cleaned and positioned it correctly, and cleaned the entire carb. As soon as I put the float bowl on, the float does not move.

    RM 125 not running

    I've already checked that, fuel is coming through the petcock and the fuel was replaced recently

    RM 125 not running

    I recently started the bike for a couple of seconds with engine starting fluid, does that mean anything or could it still be a pretty big problem

    RM 125 not running

    I haven’t checked any of that yet, but I’ll be able to tomorrow and I’ll see if the spark plug is wet or not

    RM 125 not running

    This is all true, but do you think it could have anything to do with the intake system? I don’t have a large enough bag I’d get to year down the engine, but I could do that if necessary for the bike to run

    RM 125 not running

    I recently got a 2003 rm125. when I first got it, the bike was running. I went to ride it down to trails, and it was bogging when not in the high rpm range. Then the bike shut off, I started it again, rode for about 2 more minutes in powerband and it cut again. I couldn't get it running so I had to get a ride back to my house. I bought the actual spark plug (the 36.00 one). WhenI kickstart the bike, it sounds like no gas is getting in the engine. I opened and cleaned the carburetor, and checked to see if the float worked. I put the carb back together, and the float would not move. I don't know what the problem is, can anyone help?
  15. I bought a used 2003 rm125 recently. It seemed fine, ran fine until I went into powerband and would stall. I replaced the spark plug, it started once and nowit won't start. idk if its because it just became colder in my state, ct. I dont know whats wrong with it can anyone help?
