    KX125 starting

    how much is a little? you may need to turn it a bit before it starts to kick in. the bigger black screw sticking out from the carb(plastic-like)yes is the idle. there should be a smaller brass one burried deeper into the carb that is your air screw. the air screw will affect not only your idle but 0 to 3/4 throttle i beleive?

    brakes not "floating"

    what are the caliper pins? the pin that goes through the actual brake pads or the two pins that hold the caliper onto the mounting bracket?

    brakes not "floating"

    well i changed my front brake pads(tusk) and bled the lines, and now the wheel doesn't spin as freely as it should(when i spin it as hard as i can it makes it about one full revolution) the only idea i have to far is that i may have the "pad spring" installed incorrectly. but i have assembled and disassembled it 10 times and theres only two ways it possibly fits on, neither of them solve the problem. i wish i would have kept the old pads to see if the new tusk pads are the problem:bonk: lets hear some ideas? 00' kx125

    sell my ol' girl?

    hey, im wondering wether or not i should sell my 2000 kx125. she's been good to me and i have many good memories on it. every time i get on it i just know the kx will start rite up. i have also put alot of time and money on it(rebuilt motor myself) but the fact is, im sick of spending money on the thing and it's only going to get worse(clutch needs to be replaced,swingarm linkage and shock bearings could definetly be replaced) plus, i'm looking for a faster and better suspended bike(yes i know i should just be a better rider in order to go faster)but really, the thing is a dog there's no comparison with my friends yz125. butt i also know i won't get my value back on what i have spent on the bike(i bet i could get 1500 at most) i also have a bike lined up if i do sell it (http://rockford.craigslist.org/mcy/684860290.html) so what do you think? to sell or not to sell

    scarry fast power

    hey thanks for your opionions i think ill be able to handle it:ride:

    scarry fast power

    i currently own a 2000 kx125 that i have thrashed for 2 years. the clutch is going out, linkage and swingarm bearings wearing despite a few greasings., everything just kind of going downhill. anyways my friend has an 04' rm250 he's looking to sell for 2 grand. it it ultra-clean and upon first seeing it i honestly throught it was an 06-07. all stock raced a few times and had the motor rebuilt by a respected dealer. i mainly ride tight woods trails with some long farmer's trails and cornfields thrown in. my question is will i be ready to handle a 250 in the woods and in general. i find myself using my 125 to its max power(except for in the tight trails) most of the time. of course my 125 is a real dog compared to my friend's 06' yz125. i have also heard its much easier to "de-tune" a bike then upgrade with things such as flywheel weights and throttle cams. but i don't want to deal with those things i would rather just be able to ride it without being out of control. any opinions? also for 250 riders, what bike did you move up from and how was the transition?

    new bike vs custom old bike?

    hey i have a 2000 kx125 thats in pretty good shape rebuildt entire motor myself 6 months ago starts up first kick every time. the only thing is the suspension just blows, and the clutch basket and hub are pritty well toasted. i wanted to seek your opinions on whether to invest in a brand new bike or to totally make myself a sweet bike with aftermaket mods(forks/shock done for my size + ability, new silencer,reeds,all new clutch,graphics,tires,controls) also if i get a new clutch basket hows much will a shop charge to rivet the drive gear onto the back. thanks

    reving itself

    My yamaha blaster 03 is reving itself i have no idea why. I start it, it pins itself I turn the key it doesnt shut off, I shut off the engine switch it still goes, so then finally I just flipped it over.
  12. i just put in 3/8 tire studs in and rode for 2 hours. none have fallen out yet but some are close. can i coat them with something like liquid rubber or something before i put them in so they'll hold. at this rate im sure they'll be gone in another 2 hours. thanks

    ice screws tire liner

    i got 7/16 ice screws to put in my tires and they are the exact length of the knobbies. will just the tire carcass be enough to keep the tube from popping? thanks
