    Service manual download

    Does somebody have a link or willing to send me the service manual for KLX250 or KLX300, please? A friend of mine has a problem and we need the service manual to solve it. I really need your help, but I don't have money to buy it ( I live in Israel).
  2. I noticed a few stuff that may need attention to prevent bigger damage. My bike is a 2003 DRZ-400S that did 15000 Kilometers. The problems are: 1) The engine ticks, I can't figure out from where exactly the noise is coming. 2) Sometimes when I lower gears (from 3rd and below) It doesn't work. I press the gear lever and the it turns, but not lowering the gears. Only after a few times it works again. 3) when I put in neutral and release the clutch lever, another noise I don't know how to describe is added to sound of the bike 4) If accidently, when I change from 1st to 2nd gear I don't pull the lever enough and it goes to neutral, after I press again the clutch to change it to 2nd gear and pull the lever more, I hear an impact sound from the gearbox. normally if it happens I slow and then pull the lever and then its OK. Can you please help me from your experience?

    Very disturbing thing I saw

    Thanks for the information, I decided to check it on the next big treatment to the bike, Since I live in a pretty warm place (Israel), no salt here.

    Very disturbing thing I saw

    Last time I greased the seals of the front and rear wheels I noticed there is a small groove in the metal but not too deep. I havn't changed the sprocket yet so I don't know what is going on there Do you think I need to disassemble the sprocket and check it or leave it?

    While surfing E-bay for parts I saw link of one of the products refering this http://uk.geocities.com/miscellania@btinternet.com/html/drz_spacers.html Is that true? has anyone had problems with this oil seal?

    Clutch problem (I suppose)

    Another Question: How do I clean the oil filter?

    Clutch problem (I suppose)

    In Israel they sell the plates indevidually. I ask about buying only one because that parts here are 2 times expensive than in TT oem store and I want quick fix until I will buy a whole set on-line. for example: in TT oem store they sell each plate for $9.76 and in israel the price is $20.61 (not including VAT).

    Clutch problem (I suppose)

    Thanks again for your help. An hour ago I opened that clutch cover and disassembled the plates. It seems like the driven plates (steel ones) are fine - no distortions, and most of the drive plates (fiber ones) are also fine - their thickness is 3 mm and the service manual says the service limit is 2.62. But, now we get to the bad part, the springs are done (I think this what caused the problem) - they are 1-1.5 mm under the service limit and the top drive plate is done on one side - it has become silver, no fiber left. This plate is the one that touch the preassure plate which also seems a little burnt. Attached photos: My questions now are: 1. Can I replace only one drive plate? 2. Do I need to replace the preassure plate? 3. Do you think its the springs who caused the problem since they havn't done their job well?

    Clutch problem (I suppose)

    Thanks guys, Soon I will put the bike on the side and open the cover to check the clutch. Another questions: 1) Why do I need to flush the engine couple of times with oil? 2) Which plates need to be replaced and where to buy on-line?

    Clutch problem (I suppose)

    Today I took my bike for a ride and got stuck in the mud in the middle of nowwhere. In order to get myself out I had to "battle" the mud and the bike for two hours. when I got out of the mud I tried to ride my bike and noticed that the clutch connects now only in the end of the lever and when I try to throttle the revs. are going up but the speed is not, seems like the clutch is slipping. I Think I burnt the clutch, what do you think? If I burnt the clutch what I need to replace? Do I need to drain the engine oil to check the clutch? Is it ok to open only the round clutch cover? Can a clutch lever tensioner tweak fix the problem? P.S. The bike I own is a DRZ400-S 2003.
