I can't remember exactly how it looks but it's not a difficult job so just whip the cover off and have a go if memory serves its just a lever. Actual clutch is on the other side shaft should be sealed so very little oil around

Be sure you were given the correct cable, The stock cable is part number 54011. Compair the old cable to the new one.

SOURCE: 1991 Kawasaki KX 250 super tight clutch

Hi!
Help is at Hand (Excuse pun),
This problem described strongly relates to a seizing clutch cable or frayed.
If you remove it try and pull/push the inner with your fingers there should be No resistance, you may get away with a good oiling but I would recommend replacement.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: 2005 kx 250 clutch problem... stalls when putting into gear

Two stroke motors with wet clutches are notorious for sticking when left for a period. Older oiler will leave a slight residue on ends of friction plates. If it is a regular thing after every stop, you will need to rinse clutch with a solvent. You don't need to dismantle if you are patient and carefull when applying solvent as it may discolour alloy cases and paintwork. Use a premium grade MOTORCYCLE GEAR OIL only and your problem will be solved if your clutch is A1 mechanically.

How do i change kickstarter spring on 2000 kx 250 motorcycle


Just remove the right side cover to expose the kick start mechanism. Remove the bolt on the end of the shaft, tow washers and guide then the spring. It has been awhile since I worked on the KX 250, but as I recall, the clutch does not need to be removed in the process of replacing the spring. I could be wrong on that. Below is the kick mechanism on your bike. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_146.gif

Bought a used 88 cr250 and like and idiot i didnt ride it first to make sure the tranny shifted properly...well, it didnt. when i pull in on the clutch to drop the bike in gear with the motor running it...


sounds like you need a clutch. Yes the friction plates should move a bit when you pull your clutch lever in that is how the clutch works what oil are you running in you tranny and have you tried adjusting the clutch cable? When you had your clutch apart what did the friction plates look like was there much meat left on them?

Clutch slipping


Clutch plates are probably toasted. Drain the oil, remove the cover where the clutch cable goes into and check them out. Not hard to replace but you do need a special tool to get the plates off/on.

I was riding along and the clutch just stoped working,apon further review i noticed the clutch lever on the engine came up what do i have to do to get it back in place kx 250 2001


Remove the right crankcase cover. Loosen the four springs. Remove the left crankcase cover and push the clutch shaft inward about 1/4". Now re-insert the clutch arm and put the left cover back on. Next tighten the clutch springs, 22ft lbs, then put the right cover back on. All Fixed! Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

I have 2003 kawasaki kx 125 when you put it in gear with clutch in it jumps forward and dies. where do i start with this?


make sure clutch ,is disengaging properly when you pull in clutch lever,adjust lever until you have about 1/8" freeplay.if still not disengaging, you need to drain gearbox oil, take clutch cover off & inspect clutch pack, you may have friction plates sticking together.

are you shure you have ALL the clutch plates?? the cable is well lubed? the pushrodbearing/adjuster may be in the middle of the clutch basket cover plate. OR you have the wrong springs installed!
