Question about 2003 kawasaki KX 125

1 Answer

My son has a kawasaki KX 85 (2003) the he rides for just for fun. The problem is he keeps blowing tubes about 8 or 9 so far this season. Has anyone had a similar problem or can you tell me how I can keep this from happening? He does not jump it or race, just rides on wood roads and trail. Thanks

I hope you are talking about tire tubes, check the rim for rough spots, aluminium rims will corrode have sharp edges, use emery cloth on the inside of the rim to remove any burrs, check the spoke cover rubber boot for tears , and inflate the tire to max pressure , it may be slipping on the rim and tearing the valve stem

1990 kx 125: The bike is pretty hard to start and then when i do get it started it will die out if i dont keep the revs up. It will even still do this if i have been riding a while.

How did you get on with FTjoes fix? That would be my first thing to do, dont forget to take out the jets and give them a blow through, then treat the bike to a new plug if you haven't already. :)

My 2008 kx 65 is fowling spark plugs at the rate of 1 per 3/4 tank of fuel. My son rides with me on trails and his rpm sounds fine with lots of good reving. I have never had an issue with my kx 250 and...

Make sure the choke is fully disengaged while riding. Is it two stroke? If so, make sure fuel/oil mixture is not too rich. If four stroke, try a colder plug. If four stroke, make sure valves are adjusted properly.

Anyone know why the tube keeps blowing in my sons kx 85> We can't keep a tube in it. It's on the rear. We have put 8 tubes in this year.

Do you have a rim strip to protect the tube from the spokes? Is the rim damaged from tire irons or a sharp burr where the tube might contact it? A broken or missing spoke? Did you take a rag and wipe the inside of the tire to look for sharp objects? After the rag did you feel around with your hand ? You do have to be very careful not to fold over the tube or pinch the tube with the tire iron, the tire bead, or the rim lock.Maybe you are running to low of an air pressure for the type of riding (jumping) you are doing. Maybe the brand of tube you are using is too light of a duty for off road riding.You may want to check into the heavy duty tubes available for off road use.

I keep hitting a false neatral when i ride. and

Going into neutral has nothing to do with the oil. First, make sure the shifter lever isn't down too far. not allowing it to "return" after a shift.
