Question about 2002 kawasaki KX 500
Water in only half the casings, started bike after 8 months,it sounded ok,then seen though oil window white, so i drain. thinking it's a gasket i take head and cyclinder off, now here is where it get wierd no water in piston area only clutch side. look for cracks none to be found, is it possible that the water breeched through the water pump seal at the same time i turned it off therefore it never made it to the trans ?
Well take the ******* clutch cover and the clutch out and let everything flush out. and any other parts that might have touched water inside of the engine. your most likly goig to have to replace something. who noes how bad the damage is,u might be able to just let every thing dry and soak it in oil then reinstall the parts. i recommend buying some extra tranny oil and flush out the cases with a quart or 2. also do this, use a heavier weight gear oil. if u regularly check for water and find it again. expirement and look around to find the problem, might be a gasket, if water is sneaking if somehow u might be very suprised to find the culprit.if it is radiator fluid seeping in, check the water pump seal and replace as needed..... good luck
