Clutch is gone out. Cable may be broken. Clutch can be worn and need to adjust the clutch cable to get it in the right spot to go in gear. Or you may need to add gear oil that your bike requires for the gear box. If none of that helps you may need to rebuild the gear box.

Floats not moving on my honda vt250fd

Hi Chris,

You can download the service manual for nix from here. trying to picture what you are looking at, but if they are the only rubber hoses coming off the carby, then they are most probably the fuel lines. If they come off the very top of the carby, then they may be breathers. The bike has a vacuum operated petcock also, you will need to have it in prime position for the carbs to fill. Then once the engine runs, if the petcock os working correctly, then you should be able to get fuel in on position. Just cranking it over will not created enough vacuum for the carbies to fill.,hence the prime setting. Happy to answer any questions you may have about the bike, A FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to assist you. Cheers

Clutch basket

but it was not as deep as the original. Did the older bikes have a sallower basket. Mine is a 2005 and holds 8 fibers and 7 steel plates. I can't find any partd lists for the older bikes on the web. First a question. Are you using the original clutch fiber plates and friction disks or, did you get a new pack of plates and disks to go with the new basket. I'll explain my question below. The clutch on the 125 is sort of touchy. I tried various configurations, mainly using all steel drive plates, instead of the combination of steel and aluminum. I was only able to make it work properly using the OEM GG configuration. The 125 uses a different clutch than the larger bikes. (The 200's clutch basket has a different gear on the back, but otherwise it's clutch is the same as the larger bikes.) Make sure your replacement clutch disks & plates are not for the larger bikes. (I recently saw an ebay seller's auction that claimed to be a clutch rebuild kit for the GasGas bikes. It only had 7 friction disks. ) The original clutch for the 125 Gasser had a combination of aluminum and steel drive plates. The friction plates were all the same. The 2005 parts book lists them as being 3 iron disks and 4 aluminum disks. (In my memory, I thought it was 4 steel and 3 aluminum.) If you download and look at the parts book, , the 125 clutch is on one of the last pages of the book. (page 48 of 50) BTW. I still have a new OEM GasGas 125 clutch pack in my stock; if anyone is interested. (side note: The clutch push rod for the 125 is only a few dollars. The clutch push rod for the larger bikes is in the $35 range.),,,
