    Valve leak?

    Is there anyway to get them cheaper than $160 a pair? I know i sound like a cheap skate and honestly i am but i just dont have the money, im a broke 14 yo. Could i trade it in this condition for a xr400 maybe? It needs fork seals, oem valves and cam chain. Could i squeeze over 1200$ out of it?

    Valve leak?

    Ok, i just want to see if i can get it running for now with cheap parts. I will put quality parts in when i sell it. I am just asking if it would be fine to use these or is there too much risk? https://www.ebay.com/itm/INTAKE-VALVE-Fits-KAWASAKI-12004-0002-12004-0023-12004-0033/273092619594?hash=item3f9596ad4a:g:1SsAAOSwme5amctE:sc:USPSFirstClass!78368!US!-1

    Valve leak?

    Ok, the previous owner did not even mess with the valves. He bought it as a practice bike so it was probably used when he got it. Maybe the extra springs helped the valves seal better. Should I just get the extra springs? If so where would I get them?

    Valve leak?

    So is the leaking i described bad? Also there is a small ring around the valve where it contacts with the head, is it not worn down there already so lapping wouldn’t hurt it? The guy before me took good care of this bike, the cylinder still has the cross hatch and there is a decent condition vortex piston installed and i believe he did valve work at one point because he had 2 springs installed in each intake valve before i had to replace them with the factory single spring. (He had one smaller spring inside the other spring)

    Valve leak?

    OK so i put the gas in the port and it appeared like the opposite of what carb cleaner looks like when it evaporates. It was slow but eventually a drop formed. Is this fine or should i just lap them?

    Kx issues, HELP

    In your opinion where should i buy the chain? I do not think that the valves are titanium so i am good there. And why cant the gaskets be reused? I have reused plenty of gaskets and it has been fine.

    I thought that too so i swapped the intake valves and it is the same. They are still in spec. Could i just but a 15 lapping kit? And i found a $14 cam chain on ebay. Not from china and not used. Could i buy this? Im very tight on money

    Kx issues, HELP

    I am using the right timing marks i have made sure. I have already done cam and timing work before. The thing is the bike ran perfect before. It started 1-2 kicks and had plenty of power. Now i think the issue might have been caused because i took the valves out to replace the springs and seals. Valves are very expensive and i cant spend that type of money. Is there any way to solve this. And starting it is fine i just have to use the choke but then it dies without it.

    Kx issues, HELP

    So I wanna sell my kx250f so I began fixing it up and getting it real nice. I decided to replace the head gasket for I had seen some leaking around the head. When I got in there I found the intake valve springs were broken so got new ones. When I got it back together the tdc mark and the timing marks on the cam just would not line up. They were off about a degree but they were really close. The bike runs awful. I can only start it on choke and when I let off the gas when choke it a off then it comes to an abrupt stop. Also I get slight pressure when I hold my hand over the intake port even when the lobes are not pressing the valves. The valves are in spec. I noticed the cam chain tensioner cap that holds the spring in was easier than before to compress and screw in. Right now I am suspecting the cam chain is worn and I need a new one but how does that explain the valves? Is that normal? I need help, it has been puzzling me for months.

    Valve leak?

    I have spent hours on making sure the timing is right, so i think that is fine. I guess i will remove the head and check everything yall mentioned

    Valve leak?

    I removed the valves , they look straight. The bike would run though but I had to blip the throttle and when I slowed dow it would idle high then drop low and die. How would I do a leak test?

    Valve leak?

    So I recently replaced the headgaskets on my ‘05 kx250f due to a small leak. While I had the head off I decided to do the valve seals and found my intake valve springs were broken. I replaced the springs and put it all back together. It would not start so I began diagnosing and came to find I was getting positive and negative pressure when I sealed my hand against the intake port when the lobes were not opening the valves. I checked my valve clearances and they are all in spec, any ideas?

    Kx250f sell price

    Well one of the seals cleaned up fine but the second i stuck the tool in the second one it started gushing oil so i guess i will have to buy new seals

    Oil/coolant leak

    I have already been adjusting the fuel screw. I have it at 2 1/2 turns right now. I have a hot start but it is not connected to anything but the cable looks to be in the closed position. Should i remove it and see if that help?
