  1. Hi all, Have a problem here that I need sorted by tomorrow night. Let me just say that the bike (2010 kx250f) was running like a dream (well, maybe a little lean) before any of this happened. Recently the throttle cable snapped which prompted me to replace it, no biggie. I had been running without a hotstart since I had bought the bike last year so I decided to replace it along side the throttle repair. The bike came with no lever for the hotstart and I presumed that the cable was snapped (which it was). I bought a replacement cable and lever, no hassle. I pulled the tank off the bike to access the carb to replace the cable. I unscrewed the plastic screw that sits over the hotstart. There was no little brass cylinder (not sure if this is the plunger) or spring on the end of the cable or in this screw. There was no point in replacing the cable since I hadn't got the brass cylinder or spring so I left it while i fixed the throttle cables. I have now seemingly lost the black plastic screw leaving a little nipple like rubbery thing sticking out of hotstart port in the carb. I am presuming that this is the plunger which should be pushed into itself rather than sticking out. I didn't think of it as much of an issue at the time, but now with the bike back together, the carb is pissing out fuel, from what I think is the float overflow tube, every time I turn the fuel flow valve to open. I can now not get the bike started.. The only reason I can think of this happening is because the little rubber nipple is sticking out of the carb. Can anyone confirm this or have any quick fixes that I can use? I cannot for the life of me find the plastic screw and will not be able to get one by Sunday Below on the right, is a picture of the black plastic screw I was talking about.
  2. Hi guys i have some questions and would appreciate any help you guys may have. I have a 1998 yz 250 ive had for a few years thats been in the famliy for awile. I am doing a ground up redo on it this winter. Im geting a used frame because the one i have dosent have a title so i figured wile im at it ill get a 1998/1997 wr 250 frame so i can make it street legal. I know the 98 wr 250 wasent introduced in the us but the 97 was and the yz 250 is the same bike from 96 to 98. So my question is are the wr 250s the same ? Could i find a 97 wr250 frame and swap everything from my 98 yz 250 to it ? I wont realy ride it on the street much considering its not the best bike for commuting (by far) lol, but i figure if im geting another frame with a title miswell be able to throw my street tires on it and rip some twistes with it if i want to. Thanks for any help.
  3. I have a Voss helmet and really like it I was wondering if anyone else has experience with their products and what they think.
  4. My dad grew up riding three wheelers and quads but no bikes, he fixes and rides quads and Atcs daily and my mom rode a moped but that’s all of their experience. My parents act like even the smallest trail bike is a death machine. I have ridden a atc350x (dads) and a kxf250 (friends) as the most “dangerous” machines I have ever ridden. I don’t understand and I talk to them about it to death. I even see an xr100r for $350 that was $600 on Craigslist right now that I can afford. I ride a 300ex daily and have ridden all my life. I just want a dirt bike for a chance and I can’t even get my parents to budge on a ttr125 or crf150. I’m 15 and I think it’s time I’m alowed but they don’t. I know I can ride good because I have ridden many bikes and have had my fair share of crashes.
  5. Just replaced my entire suspension and the forks are very stiff even when loosened all the way. I was wondering if the forks just needed to be ridden on to break them in.
  6. My friend recently got his chain adjuster bolt that threads into the swingarm stuck because the previous owner put loctite or something on it and the bolt broke and is almost but not completely flush with the swingarm. he tried drilling it out and it didn't work, tried an easy out and the easy broke and is stuck inside the bolt now. Any tips to avoid buying a whole new swingarm?

  9. Is there much difference with the 06 kx450f and the 08 kx450f? Also will a 06 cylinder head bolt on to a 08 bottom end and run?
  10. Check it out! Let me know your thoughts 🙂 2018 Shootout 450's BEHIND THE SCENES as a Test Rider
  11. So i have a 2009 kx450f with efi and I'm trying to hook up lights and turn signals and all of that good stuff to make it street legal. I know I need to tap into the bikes power supply to power all of this but I don't know where that would be. Should I go through the cdi or the efi and if so where would that be.
  12. Hello everyone I'm very happy with my 99' Kx250 with a few improvements (Vforce, SSS forks, kxf brakes, etc) but now it's time to revalve the suspension. The shock of my bike is leaking and probably never in at least 14 years (last revalve) have a shock maintenance, so I ask to the Kx guru's if it's possible to swap an Kxf shock, considering a lot of years of improvements in suspension tech. It's worth pay for the kxf shock plus revalve for the kx? Or just repair (because I dont know the internal condition) and revalve the stock shock? Thanks for reading. Regards
  13. I recently purchased a 2015 KX450F. The man I bought it from had a thumb throttle installed on it.( like many quads). I’ve never replaced a throttle cable much less the whole assembly. I’m wondering if anyone has the steps I need to take to change it back to the twist throttle. ( I have the oem parts already) or maybe a manual/video to do it? Don’t know what I need to remove. The correct routing, etc. thank you guys in advance.
  14. hi need help what seat covers from different bikes fit oN MY RM 125 2001
  15. My rm125 leaks gas when sitting there on the stand with gas off. I've tried cleaning carb to make sure no dirt or anything! Please help! Also my kickstarter is tight when pulling out?
  16. 2005 KDX200, transmission oil looked milky so we rebuilt the whole water pump (mechanical seal, bearing, whatever other seals are in there. oil is still milky when I drain it. through the sight glass window it looks normal until after a ride in which it looks black but then it drains as milky white color. What could be the source of this? I figure coolant is mixing with it somewhere.
  17. I have a 2012 kx250f with 2014 engine in it. When I start the bike, it normally takes 2 kicks until it starts for a second and then immediately dies. Then I kick it one more time and it starts running fine. Can anyone help?
  18. I was wondering which bike is better. I have heard many things about both bikes, good and bad. I will be using it for track and trails.
  19. Hi There! If you're viewing this then you're either stuck in the same position as me, or you're handing down your well appreciated knowledge! First of all, I'm new to ThumperTalk, what a cool forum this is! But let's get to it; Kawasaki KXF250 2007... History: I bought this bike in January, it was a bit tatty, but I saw it as a brilliant bike to finally get into Motocross full time, rather than just messing around on friends bikes. So my Suzuki Intruder was sold & I went off to purchase it. Whilst out of action with a dislocating shoulder operation, I decided to pull the bike to bits and fix all the issues it's had. Now I'm a Maintenance Engineer, so as you can guess lack of maintenance can really bug me. So the whole bike has had a full strip down. I came to check the valve clearances & they were all out of tolerance, which explained why you'd struggle to start it & it wouldn't idle brilliantly. So the engine came out, I adjusted the valves via shims, which brought them all back into tolerance; along with an oil leak I cured. I was feeling pretty stoked by this point! So the engine went back in, the carb had a full strip down & clean, which was filthy, but now it looks like the inside of a watch. Diaphragm checked for any rips & tears, or pin pricks. All got loaded back into the bike for the first start. I turned the engine over by hand first to make sure I wasn't about to smash the valves into the piston. All good. Primed with fresh fuel, I tried to kick it over. Nothing. Second kick it backfired. From that point onwards it's not tried to even start. Ive checked all the usual suspects, good spark no leakage, it has fuel, carb seems all okay & doing its job. Timing is dead on, confirmed TDC by sticking screwdriver down cylinder & rocking the crank. All earths are spot on too. Now im seriously puzzled, it has everything it needs to fire, but it's not even trying. Any advice, help & ideas would be brilliant so don't hesitate to fire anything across! Cheers guys, Nick.
  20. Hi all, Im a little bit smaller of a rider about 5`2 or 5`3 110 pounds. I feel ive outgrown my crf150rb and am looking to go to a a 250 next spring. Whats the slimmest/smallest 250f out there. Ive almost entirely ruled out a Yamaha because i went to a dealer to look at them and they feel and look so much bigger than all the other 250s. Kawasaki seems like its a smaller slimmer skinnier bike but the Suzuki doesn't look bad either. Ktms seem huge to me and really haven't looked at hondas yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  21. Going to buy either a 2004 kx250f or 2004 yz250f. Just looking to get some opinions. They are each going for $2100 (Canadian). Only reason I am skeptical on kx250f is 2004 was its first year of production. I don't race competitivly but I do ride the track and trails weekly with buddys. Thoughts?
  22. In case you haven't seen the recurrence of woods riders destroying their wrists while riding with wrap around handguards here's a photo of a member who did such. Now, since we know this can happen with wrap arounds, what are the consequences of flag style? How often, if it all, do users smash their fingers? What's the best pair of flag style handguards, for woods specifically. DirtbikeChannel on youtube said that the Cycra rebounds are a lot stiffer than most flag style, is that true? What are some stiffer style flag hand guards looking to avoid breaking my wrists and fingers.
  23. Hey guys I just sold my 15 crf250r and was looking at this 16 kx250. It looks pretty clean he said it has 13 hours on top end and looks like overall a good bike. He also said it has pc cams and 4.1 fmf exhaust system. Is there any concerns I should know about the pc cams? He’s asking 3300 for it thanks guys
