Question about 2006 kawasaki ZZR 250

2 Answers

I have a 2006 ZZR 250 and have only had for a few days. There is a LOT of oil around the front sprocket area and have pulled the cover off and find nothing obvious. Is this normal or could you provide some idea of what it might be. oil is all over the swingarm on this side as well. There is a very small amount of slack in the gear selector shaft and the oil is dark. cannot see evidence of leaking engine casing etc.

Hi,what you are looking at is quite normal,it is only oil being flung off the chain,most people dont clean in and around this area and it does look quite dramatic but is nothing to worry about,but just to be on the safe side,give the area a good clean and check there is no movement on the sprocket shaft,(i doubt there will be as this is one of the strongest parts of the gear box,if there is no movement(up and down)clean and reassemble,your problem is mostly caused by people over oiling the chain,if you have a sealed o-ring type chain,they dont need alot of oil and best not to use oil as it just makes a mess,try a "low fling" chain spray that comes in an aerosol spray can,hope this helps...cheers

Best would be to clean tht area with the engine degreaser ,spray it around there and thn wash it away with water, start your bike and observe for leakage.
Not bad if you take it for a spin and thn observe tht area.
Hope this helps!

I need a 15t counter sprocket for a 2007 Qlink Legend 250


If you are using an o-ring chain the 15t front sprocket will not work, you need to use a 520 x-link chain. Also get a 32t or 31t rear, 32t if you are riding in a hilly area, 31t for open road. JTF270-15 front and JTR279-31 on the rear.

Chain tension


Usually you want about 1 -1.6 inches (35-40 mm) from the bottom of the chain to the bottom of the chain when you grab the bottom chain about halfway between the rear sprocket and the front sprocket and move up and down.You should also left the rear wheel off the ground and rotate the chain around both sprockets checking the slack at all points of the chain. If while rotating wheel the chain gets tighter or looser this is a sign that your chain has stretched in one short section and should be replaced. If left on the bike it will either wear out the sprockets a lot faster than normal rate or the chain could break possibly damaging the engine case (very expensive).

Sprocket replacement


pull the front case cover off that is over the sproket, then you will remove the large bolt that retains the sprocket to the output shaft of the trans, this will require a 1/2" drive air impact gun (like tire shops use to remove wheel lugs), u will also need a good quaility gear puller to get the gear off as it is a press fit.
