Who often do i change the oil on a kx250


If you race this bike then I would suggest at the end of every full race meet dump the oil and filter as apart of the clean down to put away for next race day routine obviously fill it back up when due to race next
If your just recreational use and not going on the rev limiter all day long then about every 2 - 4 hours of running time would be OK
simple rule of thumb with the four stroke Motocross bikes if you love the bike and you can afford it change the oil as much as possible you cannot change to often in my opinion (just don't over tighten the sump plug just nipped up is fine)
cheers mate happy riding

How often do you change the oil on a 09 klr


City driving 2000 to 3000 miles. Highway driving/touring 3000 to 5000 miles. It really depends on the driving conditions. When your oil is worn out your engine will actually sound different. 2000 to 3000 seems like a short interval but if the oil is thrashed or dirty it should be changed. I have heard it is a waste of money to change the oil too frequently, but, if the dirt is thick enough in the oil to affect how the engine runs, then it is time to dump out the dirt and put in some fresh oil. Highway and long distance riding is not as hard on the oil and builds up dirt deposits at a slower rate. Just remember to use an oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate. 20w-50 for hot climate/touring. Any oil that says Energy Conserving on the lable should not be used in your bike. It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Synthetic oil will help your bike run smoother , cooler , and shift easier.

Problem getting bike into gear while riding


If the problem only happens when the bike is cold, the oil could be the problem. If the clutch lever has excessive endplay, the clutch needs to be adjusted.

I changed the oil and filter in my 2007 kawasaki


you probably have a leak! It is possible, (depending on what type of oil you put in)
that the oil dissolved the gasket, or removed sludge from an existing hole, causing it to open. but if you dont have any oil spots..well....thats a whole nother story.
terribly sorry!!
i hope this helps in some way!

Suzuki bandit sticky gearbox


Stop riding the bike until you change the gearbox oil and oil filter. Yes, the oil is probably the problem. I am somewhat surprised that the pistons haven't seized yet. On the bottom or lower side of the gear box there will be an oil drain plug. Drain the oil and put in new oil. The oil fill hole is probably on the right side cover near the rear of the casing. The plug will probably have a dip stick to measure the oil level. Put in 10w40 motor oil. Ride the bike for a few hours then drain the oil to help flush out the dirt and grit built up in the gearbox. Put in fresh oil and a new oil filter if the bike has a filter.

Your bike is 18 years old and parts can be difficult to find. Your bike probably has an oil filter. If so, it desperately needs a new one. Google " vintage suzuki motorcycle parts " . I can not find a free service manual online. You may be able to buy one at www.repairmanuals.com

Foul plug


It seems your piston ring needs to be replaced since its worn out. i am saying so because of the way the bike is being used. Since its 2 stroke, engine oil from the sump is making its way int the firing chamber and depositing on your sparkplug. Therefore pay special attention to the last ring, thats the one which uses the oil for lubrication...........sodeep

When i pull the clutch on my dirt bike it doesn't spring back and when it's pulled the clutch doesn't engage.


First, get a new clutch cable. Tape the new cable to the old one and unhook the old one. Now you have a new cable and a reserve cable ready for use if needed during a race.

Second, change gearbox oil and install a new oil filter if your bike has one. All the dirt and grit in the oil is binding the clutch. Ride the bike for a couple of hours using the clutch often. Now drain the oil again and put in fresh oil. This will flush out the dirt and grit. Use 10w40 motor oil. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell.

Kawasaki kx 250 fouls spark plug in 30 minutes


You definitely need to change the oil mixture to at least 40:1, use a good grade of 2 stroke oil. You do NOT need to return the bike. I'd highly recommend using an NGK B7EV spark plug. A hotter plug will stop the premature fouling. I would not recommend you decrease the oil to 50:1 because you are essentially robbing the engine from adequate oiling for the piston, KIPPS valves and the bearings. The hotter plug will make a huge difference but remember if he gets to the point where he is able to ride the bike to it's potential he will need to run the cooler plug, B8EV or B9EV. You can also use a cheaper plug in the same heat range, B7ES or B8ES. Those plugs should cost about $1.25 ea. and are an affordable cost of running the bike. It's not uncommon to replace a spark plug frequently, it's the nature of the 2 stroke engine.
