    A cable that has not been adjusted properly is not installed correctly.

How to attach the clutch cable to the engine i have a 00 kx 125 cant figure out the clip on the clutch to cable mechanism

I am not familiar with a 00 kx 125.

Typically, a clutch cable has a barrel (or other special shaped piece) on the end which clips into a holder on the lever OR there is a threaded rod with two nuts on it to allow for adjustment.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for your interest in

The clutch will not spring back after you pull the clutch handle

Unhook both ends of your clutch cable if it is binding at all replace it. If the lever on the motor does not go all the way back to riding position (disengaged clutch position). You may have to disassemble the motor to check for a broken spring or damaged clutch engagement mechanism.

Clutch not engaging

could be a few different things,But always start with the small( inexpensive )first and work your way up...#1 check your clutch cable adjustment to be sure its engaging and disengaging properly(clutch cables stretch over time and need replaced or adjusted)...but if you have never done any clutch work to the bike(and you ride it like i do mine) #2. it probably needs new clutch plates and #3 maybe clutch basket from your description of the problem. the clutch plate fibers wear down over time(they are like brake pads and wear out).and the plates wear groves in the clutch basket and interfear with the plate movement...hopefully its just your cable..hope this helps..

KX250 Won't Disengage Properly

try to tighten down the clutch plates they can just be slipping

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.

How do I install the clutch release shaft on a KX 125?

The clutch arm where the cable connects is on the left and it connects to the clutch via a shaft that pushes a rod which then pushes a ball bearing sitting in the holder and then the holder pushes the clutch operating plate to dis-engage the clutch. The only seal is on the clutch arm shaft that goes into the casing. At worst, only the springs on the operating plate would need to be removed then a 1/4" inward push on the rod from the right side would give clearance for the shaft to be inserted.
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.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!
