Plan on replacing the 9 year old crank seals as well. They are not hard to change even with the engine in the bike and the cost is very low. Paw Paw

Did you check your float , needle and seat? Did you check your fuel tank petcock filter? When was the last time the crank seals were changed? Paw Paw

You need to find a service manual for your bike. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=1999+kx250+service+manual&_sacat=6000 Paw Paw

Did you also replace the brake pad pins? If not they may be work. FYI: I don't like Tusk breaks. Paw Paw

That drawing is to show just how much clearance is usable and what is too much to use. You are at "0" which is great. If it should ever get to be ".03" in it will be used up and need replacing. Paw Paw

That is one of the drain holes in the threads so that the majority of the oil can be drained. This is due to that very thin elevated portion of the case where the plug threads into. If you look very close, you will see the edge of the hole where the ... more »

Remember one thing before you attempt to do a drilling operation on that case....The case material where the drain is located is really very thin. In your photo you will see that the material does go into the case a good bit in length, but it is no more ... more »

I may be incorrect, but it sure looks like is was resleeved and then cleaned up with a grinder on the edges. It also looks like there may be some wear on the lower section of the cylinder. Paw Paw

If the bike set for a long period of time with fuel in the carb while the work was being done, then I would look at a clogged pilot jet. Could also be a hanging throttle cable or sticking carb slide. Paw Paw

Running a 2 stroke out of fuel is a very good way to eat a piston as it over heats and has no lubrication from the fuel. Remove the exhaust pipe and look into the exhaust port at the piston to see if it is ok. Also your pilot jet may be plugged. Paw ... more »

Check your starter relay. Almost every thing on this bike goes through it. Be sure all the connections are clean and tight and that the fuse is good. Also check all ground straps on the bike as if they are rusty or dirty you will not have a good ground ... more »

Was your clutch basket notched? Did you presoak the clutch fibers before you installed them? Did you put the clutch plates back in the correct oreder? Was this an OEM new clutch? Paw Paw
