Started new thread Clutch cover gasket keeps leaking 1/4/2021 7:19 PM

Just did a clutch on a 2013 rmz 250 and have tried two different gaskets now and both have leaked. Last one I tried I laid the cover on a piece of glass and it’s flat no warping. Stretched bolts? Can I double up gaskets? Didn’t leak before I took it ... more »

Unfortunately, without the cylinder off and some pictures I am afraid there isn't too much more anyone can give for advice.

So actually I put on a no toil screenless cage filter and then I guess I was really paying attention and noticed it. I put the stock back on and now I still notice it. I guess to be honest I do not think it was there from stock. When it’s cold it will ... more »

Yup all 3 couplers do the same thing. I also did change the spark plug when I had the tank off for doing the fuel filter. I also refilled with fresh fuel and used electrical contact cleaner before I plugged everything back in.

Little update. I pulled fuel filer, looked like the new one, put the new one on anyways. Took throttle body off and removed injector and took for cleaning. Reinstalled everything. Still has the slightest bog. I asked the shop I bought the bike from and ... more »

Added reply in a thread Getting Older Graphics To Stick 12/29/2020 12:19 PM

I’ve had pretty decent luck with 3m spray adhesive. Makes kind of a mess so I usually mask and paper off the area, spray under the lifted spot, stick down, then wipe off the excess. If there is dust or dirt already under the sticker on the adhesive it’s ... more »

Something is the problem there then. Float isn't closing the needle seat. Have you tried starting it holding the throttle wide open?

This is not gonna be a race bike for anyone anymore. Play bike for a customer’s kid on acreage. Just picked it up to fix and flip for him. Paid $150 so figured I couldn’t go too wrong.

Added reply in a thread 02 kx clamps on an 04? 12/16/2020 9:39 AM

I'm not saying they will or wont work but the Kawasaki part numbers for their stock upper and lower clamps have different part numbers for the 2002 and the 2004 kx125. If you have the clamps and have the bike I'd say take some time and try it.

So this is a used, older Cobra 50cc I bought and there is a piece of the shroud missing that has cracked off. Looks like it was cracked and was held on by the graphic and then finally let loose or was pulled off. I was able to find a used shroud for ... more »

Little update. I tried DOT 3 brake fluid and it didn't do a whole lot. The graffiti remover worked to an extent up seemed like the paint got gummy when the remover was wet but didn't really "remove" it. The small detail wire brushes on a dremel seem ... more »

Started new thread Re-applying graphics 12/16/2020 6:46 AM

This is a stretch but does anyone have any successful strategy for peeling off, adding something like spray adhesive, and re-applying an old graphic to a new plastic? Have a shroud that is cracked 100% across but the graphics is still all good. Getting ... more »

So there should be lots of old parts around not being used?

Looking for anyone with some knowledge on cobra mini cycles. Especially on parts. I picked up a 2006 cobra king 50cc and it’s body is pretty tough. Also has the splines on the kickstart shaft destroyed

Get your head and cylinder off and post pics of piston, head, and cylinder inside. That will give some clues as to what extent of damage you are dealing with.
