125cc Kawasaki dirt bike, cranks on first kick, idles but won't run in any gear, doesn't die out but doesn't seem to engage gear, possible problems?

Does it jerk forward when you put it into gear and die? Or you put it into gear and the bike doesn't move when you let the clutch out? Badly adjusted clutch in both cases. Worst case, you need new clutch plates and springs.

I have an 85 Kawasaki zl900 eliminator.when taking off, you cant fully engage the clutch or it will die. It also will not go out of first gear. You have to have the choke on or it will die. Some co-wo

If the choke has to be engaged, the pilot jets are more than likely plugged. I have not found a product that will clean out these very small orifices. I always disassemble the carb, remove the jets and clean with a cutting torch tip cleaner. Note: there are several small holes on the side of the pilot jets that need to be cleaned as well, not just the center inlet hole.

What's your problem?1995 yamaha virago 1100 that sometimes you you put into gear and immediately dies

The Clutch on some bikes will disengage the starter motor. Yamaha will not allow you to engage gear when the side stand is down. Hope this gives you some idea

Have a 2005 KX250, have not been able to eliminate the bog from the low end to mid range,and from mid to high, does not come out of turns strong and have to clutch it alot to get it to rev to pick up...

You are on the right track. Make sure your air/fuel mixture is good. How hard do you ride the bike? When was the last time you changed your clutch? A worn clutch can give you the same symptoms. Make sure your clutch is properly adjusted. If so, it probably needs to be replaced. The KIPs (kawasaki integrated powervalve system) should be cleaned routinely to avoid carbon build up.

No, this is a clutch problem. I love these bikes, wish I still had mine. Need new cable and probably clutch plates. It's very easy to change the clutch. If you get stuck email me at and I'll talk you through it.

I just replaced the clutch plates on my sons 95 KX 80...and now it acts like I've got the clutch engaged all the time and it won't let the gears engage...I've changed a lot of clutch plates and...

Remove cover and check if you can rotate the clutch centre without the outer moving, this would suggest the clutch centre has not seated correctly or the pushrod or opperating lever is not allowing it home all the way, i presume you measured the thickness of the clutch plates before hand

I have a 2001 kawasaki 125 eliminator shuts off

If it dies when put into gear then its the side-stand switch (stand is down or switch not working)
If it dies when the clutch lever is released then either it was released too quickly with not enough revs, the engine doesnt have enough power to pull away or possibly the clutch switch is working in reverse

Good Luck
Hope this helps.
