Yes, more clutch sensivity is most likely the key in this matter.

ok, I checked that and it looks stabil, but thanks for the tip.

Hi, yes is possible, it seems like this both on practis and at the last race as well //Mikael

I was so sure it was the bike that I did not fully take rider factor into the equation. He thinks and I observe that it looks like he does similar starts and after 3-4 bikes start to bog, Neither the -14 kx nor the earlier KTMSX65 -13 acted like this...

I dont think I will change front sprocket, maybe add 1 tooth to the back, at the most. actualy on sandy tracks you can drop 1 to run longer on the same gear thru the whole berm not needing to put in the next one in the corner so to speak, I think my ... more »

thanks for all the tips! It happen like this also before the change of piston. Regarding the Power-valve: When I changed piston I basicly remove the locking clips from the axel and then slide the other "arm" of the axel to the side to get free clearence ... more »

Yepp, you are right, its a cheap test to do. My only concern is that he would end up between 2:nd and 3:d gear in some turns. And as you wrote good (experianced) riders could adapt, but my son is not superexperienced and is not a big fan of feathering

1 tooth on front sprocket will change a lot on the all around handling of the bike on the track. My son seem to be pretty satisfied with the stock gearing on most tracks for his current speed.

I was thinking about the needle aswell, drop the needle (raise the clip) will give less fuel, maybe that will help. I need to test it Kawasaki actualy also provided a additional needle when I bought the bike, I did not check if it is thinner or thicker ... more »

That would most likely help, im only frustrated it varies, sometimes it seems allright and sometimes it bogs. I dont recall his last bike kx85 -14 acted in the same way.

New thread KX85 bogs when make starts at 2:nd gear 8/15/2017 1:42 AM

Hi, My sons kx85 -17, sometimes bogs when he shall make a start at 2:nd gear. It was worse with the Pro Circuit pipe/silencer so I changed back to the HGS exhaust-system and thought I "solved" it because the bike didnt bog anymore when he did the start ... more »
