Moriarty should be open this weekend, unless something changes they should be making posts about it on Instagram in the next few days.

I had a 16, now have a 19. The pc exhaust from my 16 did not fit on the newer gen. The exhausts are completely different.

Just did my top end and it looked perfect. Air filter will not cause that issue, that it's from lack of lubrication. Ive seen it bad enough on some customers bikes that you couldn't separate the cam from the cam cap (pinched oring on oil filter cover, ... more »

Thank you! That's good to know! One other quick question, I'm using a vertex piston, and have three first clip installed. Looks to be fully seated, but the sucker will not spin in the groove at all. Anyone encountered this?

Any of you seen wear like this on the inside if the valve cover from the rocker arm shafts? Im cleaning up parts while doing a top end (and waiting for valve seals since i used maxima electrical contact cleaner to check for valve seal and clean carbon.

Check the manual for idle speed, i know on the 2018s the idle spec was 2300rpm, had customers that would have flameout issues and when the idle was checked it was lower than 2100.

Ive seen the large gear warp as well, not just a teeth breakage problem.

Ive been

using some new skateboard griptape from DKLSkateboarding. It's been holding up good, grips like normal sandpaper, and no noticable extra wear on the riding gear!

The relay has a plug on top for the wire harness, and two posts. One post is power in, the other is power out when the relay is energized.

It runs up near the battery and connects to the starter relay. The only thing that should be on the negative terminal of the battery is the short cable to the subframe. Images from service manual, can't get pics of the bike right now.

You said it'll run for a second then die? Check and see if the tip over sensor is right side up.

Only one wire. That's the power wire, should go to the starter solenoid. The starter grounds directly to the engine case.

Added reply in a thread Can you do a 250sxf top end without removing engine from frame? 8/17/2020 8:20 AM

It uses bolts, not studs to hold the cylinder and head on, so not much lifting it's required. Can definatly be done in the frame.

Love the no toil filter oil! I used to use the red, but it is alcohol based, and it ate the glue out of a uni filter. Switched to green, and i actually like it better than red since it's non flammable it gives a little piece of mind. I haven't used green ... more »

It may sound silly, but pop the dust cover down and make sure the seal was installed correctly. I have seen them put in backwards.

True, I'm on mobile so i can't see where anyone is located. I do know the cranks are different on the 06 and up, but i think that's the only major change. Another reason i don't think the older motor will work, even if the mount holes line up, is Kawasaki ... more »

Added reply in a thread Kx250 6/13/2020 7:49 PM

Kawasaki went to a new frame and engine in 05. They changed some things internally with the engine in 06, but i believe the cases are the same (double check with part numbers). Based on that i would think 05-07 would bolt in.
