Question about 1982 kawasaki Z 250 C

1 Answer

Noisy timing chain

My Kawasaki Z 250 C was in storage for 6 months. When I started it the timing chain was noisy, it was not noisy prior to storage. Will this fix it self if I run the engine until it gets hot? I'm worried I may break the chain or the chain may jump off the cog.

Did you check oil for moisture or change the oil before you started it? Sometimes when things get stored they end up getting moisture in the oil and this can lead to rust forming inside and of course improper lubrication. I would definitely have started with a oil change before starting it. Anyways if that's not it your tentioner isn't working properly because if im correct it is self adjusting.

Testimonial: "Thank you. I know checking the oil is an obvious thing to do, however I started looking for deeper problems instead of looking at the obvious. Thank you"

2004 Kawasaki KX 250 F no compression


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Broken or hole burnt through piston due to spark plug heat range to high or pre-ignition due to the ignition timing too far advanced overheated engine caused by a burnt valve or carbon/metal particle embedded in the cylinder head glowing hot causing abnormal combustion timing.
2. Any bent or broken valve head caused by improper adjustment or sticking/seizing in the valve guide.
3. Broken connecting rod due to bottom end failure.
4. Incorrect cam timing due to either installation error or cam chain malfunction or drive gear failure.
5. Spark plug blew out of head due to improper torque or failed threads.
6. Failed compression release valve or blown out like the spark plug scenario.

Noisy.. posssible chain or rear sprocket?


It is probably both chain and sprockets. Try rolling the bike backwords, if it is making a clicking sound that does not sound normal, it is time for a new chain and sprockets.

Bike starts well, 2006 but only has 1000 miles on it. sat in storage during move (7 months). drained gas and disconnected battery. idles fine but when you give the the gas to go or give it gas period it...


If the bike ran fine prior to putting it in storage and all you did was drain the fuel and disconnect the battery, its likely moisture ( condensation) developed in the carbs while it sat. this type of thing happens when fuel is drained. Your best bet is to remove the carbs and clean the jets. Its my opinion and experience to put fresh fuel in a bike along with (stable) fuel treatment prior to storing them. With the stable added to the fuel, the fuel will hold good for about 1 year.. Replacing the battery and starting them and letting them warm up to operating temp monthly while in storage is always a good idea..
I hope this helps..
