Take off any side covers to look for a small oil tank. This bike should have a pump that meters this oil into the gas. Put your 2-stroke oil in there.

What Type of Transmission/Gear Oil does this require?

I used automatic transmission fluid (ATF) on my two stroke CR250.
Your bike should be the same, don't forget to mix the two stroke oil with the gas.

We have 75 125 ke. my son developed a problem where as soon as you release the clutch , it surges forward then dies instantly, i've tried adjusting clutch cable but with the same results, could this be...

No, this is a clutch problem. I love these bikes, wish I still had mine. Need new cable and probably clutch plates. It's very easy to change the clutch. If you get stuck email me at and I'll talk you through it.

The bike starts but wont idle by its self. ii am able to ride it but the choke has to by all the way on for it to run at all. i cant figure it out

If you are using choke to make it run, then the mixture is to weak. As its an old bike has anybody changed the main jet to a smaller on at some time? You can also look at the main needle itself. Some models hace a little clip on the top of the needle. If you move the clip down (there are little notches) it will raise the needle and richen the mixture. I would definately get the carb apart and check it has the correct jets and is clean.

My 1974 kawasaki ke 125 is leaking gas out the bottom of the engine. what is wrong with it?

Several things could be wrong. First, the fuel petcock (valve) at the bottom of the gas tank should be turned off when the bike is not being ridden. Also, it is possible the valve may not be fully shutting off the gas. This can allow the carb to overflow and leak gas. A stuck open or punctured float in the carb bowl can cause overflow. The float should be light as a feather and have nothing inside it but air. Is the carb securely mounted?

Check for cracked fuel hose or bad connections at the tank and carb. Is the fuel valve body leaking gas where it mounts to the tank? Heck, with the bike being 36 years old the tank may be leaking at a weld or due to rust through. I wish I could work on your bike. The older bikes are more fun to work on than the newer bikes. Post a reply and let me know what you find.

Need rings!! for 1976 kawasaki ke 125

It looks like Babbitt's has the parts. Pistons and rings are sold in 3 sizes; standard, .020 oversize and .040 oversize. I would suggest you have the cylinder bored and install new piston, rings and needle bearing.
Go to
You might want to install new crank bearings and seals as well but that involves an engine teardown. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

I need a wiring diagram for my 175 cc Kawasaki KE 1976 all the indicator wiring pluss lights have been stripped off the bike pluss?? whats the other spark plug in the head for ?

A service manual is a very valuable tool, esp. with a bike of that age. Dealer, mfr. and clymer books are sources for that. Meantime, the public library may have your info in the 646 stacks of reference section.

Not sure about 2nd plug. If its wired, then its to insure you get ignition in the cylinder. Some mfr's did that for a while.

I have a kawasaki 125 dirt bike it gets fule and sparkes but will not run pull started it and sat and kicked for hours what could be wrong

Bottom line is it needs some attention. Remove the tank and flush out the rust, water and any trash in it. Remove the fuel valve assembly from the tank and clean the wire mesh filter screen. Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then thoroughly clean and replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road. Please top rate this answer.

The oil pump on my 1977 kawasaki ke175 went out, what do I have to do to convert the bike to a premix? And what oil/gas ratio should I use?

Get a new pump if you want; 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, the part is not in stock. The pump is in stock at Babbit's @ $104.00.

Otherwise, just drain the oil tank and plug the end (or just remove the tank). Mix the gas and oil in the gas tank 32 to 1. That equals 4 ounces of oil per gallon of gas.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!
