Somehow the oil is getting into the cylinder combustion chamber and coming out the exhaust. There are 2 ways it can get in there. 1 going past the pistion rings (not likely but could happen) or 2 going past the valve seals (very likely). I would consider doing a top end rebuild and some new piston rings. Thanks for using FixYa!

Sincerely,

JC

SOURCE: OIL GOIN FROM GEARBOX OUT MUFFLER

Thats not likely. What you are seeing is excess oil from you gas and oil mixture. Not sure if your still running the oil injection pump but it sounds like you have been running a very rich oil/fuel mixture.
The gearbox oil is not accessible through the crankcase. They a totally separate sealed sections of the motor. If by chance you are losing gearbox oil your bike will billow a very white disgusting smelly cloud of smoke. If that is what is happening you may have a right side crank seal blown which will allow the oil to be sucked from the gearbox into the crankcase. Hopefully this is not the problem because with your model I'm 85% certain you will have to split the cases to replace the main seal on the right side engine center case. If thats the case I'd highly recommend you replace both right and left main seals as well as main bearings.
You will need some special tools to do this job. I can tell you what you need to do the job and if you like to DIY I can tell you how to do it and what to look out for.
Best of luck.

Got a cluck cluck noise coming from the engine and ive already replaced the piston and rings, is it the kips and how can i quieten it


is the chain properly tight?
is there enough oil, and is the oil designed for use with this bike?
Is the noise audible only on neutral or also during the ride? Might be the common kawa transmission problem, I had two kawasaki bikes, the transmission is unusualy louder than on other bikes, thats normal with kawa, but had similar problem only when standing still on neutral.

2005 kdx 200 clutch not engaging properly


Assuming the clutch handle on the handlebar is adjusted properly, only three things will cause the problem.
  • Very dirty oil in the gearbox. The grit is causing the clutch to drag. Change oil, ride for an hour in the city then change oil again to flush out the grit.
  • Worn clutch lever (at gearbox). Lever is not moving the pusher far enough to fully disengage the clutch. A new lever would be needed.
  • Synthetic lubricant ( or oils with "special" additives), was put in gearbox. 10w40 motor oil should be used in the gearbox. Synthetics can swell the cork on the friction plates causing the clutch to drag. New friction plates will fix the problem.
The current amount of clutch drag is not enough to harness the power of an engine rev. That is why the clutch seems okay at higher revs. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Excessive oil from muffler


unburnt oil will cause this issue that you have, on my old wr250 this was the case, get the carb mixture set properly for the oil gas and air. clean the piston and the spark from carbon deposits. do this and you will even get more power out of your 2 stroker.

1998 kdx oil


Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives.

Use Two Stroke ENGINE oil in the pump. If not doing an automatic oil pump the mix the gas and oil 32 to 1. That equals 4 ounces of two stroke ENGINE oil to one gallon of gas. NEVER use motor oil in the gas. Only two stroke engine oil.

Please top rate this answer. Thanks!
