You will have to remove the head and cyclinder to do this. You will need a manual on top end rebuilds for you bike.

I BOUGHT MY 2006 KX 450F IN 2009 ONLY RIDE IT TWICE BIKE TO BIG FOR ME. BIKE STAND FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS. SUNDAY I START IT THE SECOND KICK IT START. HE DIDN'T IDLE AND HE BLOW HIS OIL OUT. I TOOK IT FOR...


Yes, the problem is linked to compression getting past the rings. The pressure goes to the gearbox then some oil gets carried out of the box along with the compression. Too much oil in the gearbox makes the problem even worse. You shouldn't need pistons. Chances are the rings are just stuck in the piston ring grooves. Sometimes they can be freed up by the mechanic manipulating them. Often they break when manipulated. It all depends on how badly they are stuck. If a piston is badly scored it needs to be replaced. The scoring can stop the rings from sealing the cylinder. Do this; drain the oil then fill the box to the proper level. Wash the bike to rid it of previous oil spills. Now see if the problem returns after the washing. If the rings are stuck , the bike should be smoking as you start and ride it. Chances are that only the rings will need to be replaced. Any chance you can be there as the mechanic takes the cylinder off? A dishonest shop could bring you a badly scored piston and rings and say they came from your bike when in reality they came from another bike. They free up your rings and charge for new pistons and new rings as if they actually put them in.

Why would clip holding gudgon pin in on piston come out and make a bit of a mess after 70 hrs use kx 85 08


Unfortunately it is never possible to find out the cause, it is not very common, but does happen. For this reason when doing work on the piston it is recommended to always use new circlips.
Even then it may be the installers fault, or a damaged clip, or the groove in the piston not machined exactly.

Bore size


The cylinder bore is just that > the bore size of the cylinder. The piston clearance should be 0.0015 to 0.003. Anything more than .005 and the piston is too loose.

sounds like you might need to rebuild the top end and check the rod bearings remember when doing a top end always change piston and rings and use new base and head gasket

I have a1987 kawasaki kx 250. it is very hard to kick


Once u have the piston out then there is a tool you can use for extracting the rings or you can simply use strips of tin and slide it behind the rings from were the two ends of the ring meet and slide them round the piston. Be very careful when putting the new rings on because ther are quite brittle
