    Brake fluid leaking from bike?

    if the bolt is cheap i would replace it,remeber to order the washers also.the washers are made of copper so when you tighten down the line it forms a gasket,almost like a o ring would.so it may be normal if one has a lip on it.its knda hard to say with out seeing it.like radkx said it may of just come loose from the impact also.sorry im not more help.

    Brake fluid leaking from bike?

    that is called a banjo bolt,you may have cracked it or one of the copper washers.i would pull the bolt out and check it over for any cracks,also when ever the bolt is removed the washers have to be replaced.there is also a chance the brake line it self broke,check that for cracks also.

    Bogging problem

    do a search for ap mod,i did it to my kx250f and it worked like a charm.it kinda sound like the ap problem everyone is having with the carb.

    gas overflow

    if its the black tube on the bottom of the carb then you have something (dirt)holding the needle open in the seat.if its the clear ones than i would say its float height. my 06 leaked out of the black tube,took the carb apart and cleaned it,found a small peace of dirt making the needle valve stay open all the time.

    fork bleader things

    it doesnt take much to twist the bars in the rubber mounts.i got up after i broke mine and finished my race pratice with no outher broken parts.

    1999 kx125 water in the pipe problem!!

    is the head or cylinder worped? i beleave the base gasket would not put coolant in the pipe because the piston does not go down far enough to put coolant on top of it to push it out the exhaust and coolant shouldnt get past the piston ring.where the head nuts loose? some times you may have a crack in the water jackets that leaks into the port but this might not be visable to the eye,machine shops have a special dye to find things like this i think its called magna flux.i would start with a head gasket and try that,its the cheapest for now.i am not saying this is the problem tho.let me know how you make out.
