Question about 2001 kawasaki KMX 125
The connecting rod bearing is inaccessible without disassembling the crankshaft halves. This is strictly a job for the shop having a two ton hydraulic press. I think you are actually referring to the crankshaft end bearings. Either way, the job doesn't get much bigger >
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 and/or the notation "Not Available" is in the description, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx
Click on the following tabs > CLUTCH, CRANKCASE, CRANKSHAFT / PISTON, CYLINDER HEAD / CYLINDER, TRANSMISSION, and also GEAR CHANGE MECHANISM and GEAR CHANGE DRUM/SHIFT FORKS. This will give you an idea of what you are getting into. The best case is you fixed it cheap and now have tools and experience as well. The worst case is you now have tools, a box of parts to take to the dealer and experience.
