    klx300r sprocket question

    Hi Single trail riding with 13 in front is fine. Keep the did chain, clean and grease (inside) frequently, it will last longer. i'm now changing the front sprocket from 13 to 14 because planing a trip to north africa (plains, dessert trails). more topspeed with less rpm's on 6th gear. notice; the klx300r is / was a beginners bike.

    Who's been riding 30 years?

    Hi Got the street legal ticket in 1975, had a Yamaha 125cc. Before i rode those "mopeds" 50cc - tuned and sometimes very fast. the police did not agree, but it was cheap big fun for very young men. three weeks ago i bought a second-hand BMW R100GS. it's my 12th bike since 1975. Bye

    Anyone go riding in the snow?

    GREAT! Some mates in Switzerland are using this. saw some absolutely amazing pictures on the net (try "CET Club" on your searchmachine).

    Are foam tubes worth the money???

    Hi They are worth the money, specially for the rear wheel. but at first you should specify what kind of riding you're doing. me its' enduro in France and a lot of people here use foam tubes (bib mousse). foam tubes - imo - are not thought for mx, because you cannot change the psi. I have a Michelin 120x18 Bib Mousse for the rear wheel. the front wheel has a tube envelopped with an old tube cutted off (wrapped around). works fine. Bye

    KLX300 front brake issue

    Hi Build out the brake pats, clean everything and re-assembly. use a brake-cleaner (spray). when the pats are off, pull gently your brake lever and look at the brake-pistons if they move correctly. dont pull to hard.. good luck

    Wife needs new bike with low seat height

    The Kawasaki KLX300R has lower seat height, but you have to do some mods for racing (fork suspensions). see "PlanetKLX" on the web. cheers

    Lack of time and a little paranoid

    Hi I have always been told that a constant velocity carburetor is not that much affected by altitude changes as an Pumper Carb. well, we here in the east of France are beetwen 100 till 1400 metres and i never had the need to do anything on my cv-carb. You have to look at the spark plug. if there is thick black soot on, then it's too rich. When you are going to make changes on the carb, you also have to look after the air-filter and the exhaust system. you can't change one item and not the others. Have a look at this site: www. planetklx.com lot's of your questions will be answered there. Bye

    repack 2 stroke silencer?

    Hi I dont know this package. you'll have to open the 2-stroke silencer and then compare the wool. perhaps you have to cut a bit off. the mine is like a small carpet (30 cm X 50 cm and 2 cm), you can wrap it around the inner structure of the silencer. have a try...

    repack 2 stroke silencer?

    No problem. 1. buy wool for 2 stroke exhausts 2. open the rivets (drill them out) on the silencer. whatch that you do not enlarge the holes 3. replace the wool (do not stuff the wool to thight). perhaps you have to use some small / fine metal wire to fix the wool on the inner tube 4. close the silencer with new rivets. Good luck

    Is it ok to switch premix?

    Something must be wrong with my Husky 125. I change premix all the time, Motul, Ipone, Blue-Oil RR, Shell and even premix for chain saws once, when i ran out of fuel in the woods. No problems - i only have to watch that the ratio is in beetwen 2 - 2 1/2 percent.

    I feel like a horrible dad

    Real bad parents do not spend time with their childrens... Don't worry, your youngster's arm will be going better soon, and then it's up to him to decide, if he likes to go back to the mx-tracks. Well, the next time you'll try do to better - and then the other parents might call you "overprotective".

    2008 Kawasakis !!!!

    A big step backwards! - i suppose the first thing you have to change after a grounding ist the exhaust. never seen a oversized thing like that. - after wood riding you have to buy a new cable (right front shock). - no handguards. - the radiator seems not to be well protected. it's very close to the plastics. well, it seems that ktm is still the best prepaired bike for off-road purposes.
