Just bought brand new mountain bike and cant put front wheel on due to the front forks being slightly twisted suspension forks they are


That sounds like a manufacturing defect without seeing it. You may consider returning to where you purchased it. New bikes generally come with a one year warranty against manufacturing defects and materials, so if it is new then they should be able to give you a new part.

Most professional bike shops have a set of what are called "H" tools that are designed to align dropouts on front forks and the rear drop outs. If a bike mechanic has been properly trained and has the experience then he/she will know how to use them.

However these tools are not recommended for use on front shock drop outs. Most shocks have the sliders with the drop outs cast into them. They are usually cast out of aluminum. Cast aluminum has a very low yield point and will easily break and snap in two if they are bent. The "H" tools mentioned above are designed to be used on forks and drop outs made from steel, which has a much higher modulus of elasticity or yield point, and they can be bent, tweaked and coaxed back into alignment without compromising the metal.

Front shock lower sliders are held together and aligned at the factory with a "U" type brace that goes over the tire. This allows the two legs of the shocks to travel in unison. Most front shocks have these two sliders and the U brace cast as one piece to eliminate the need for manual alignment of the drop outs. So if one of your drop outs is tweaked so that the wheel doesn't fit, then it most likely got damaged in shipping and I would have to assume that you did not purchase it assembled from a local (to you) bike shop. You may need to take it up with the shipping company or with where you originally purchased the bike to get this rectified.

Kawasaki front caliper rebuild 2002 klr 650


Your best bet would be to call a local shop (preferably a Kawasaki dealer) and see if they can run one down for you. I checked some of the larger parts dealers on the net, and they had everything except the calipers, like the following site:
http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/2/10/20380/PDVG/Dirt-Bike-Motocross-Parts-2002-Kawasaki-KLR650-Parts.aspx
If a local Kawasaki dealer can't help you, perhaps you could contact them and see if they have any leads.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Kawasaki kdx 125 plugs oil up and bike stalls


I think you have worn internal engine parts. To much oil is getting past the piston rings. Try installing new piston rings and honing the cylinder walls.

KX80, overheating ?


I'm not familiar with this bike but it sounds like it could be air locked and causing it to overheat.I found the best way to remedy problems like this is to get it up to temp,shut off and lay bike down too one side then the other.Tilt forward then back,check to see if coolant level dropped.If that dont work pull a vaccum on cooling system and see if it holds when warm.

What is the location of the oil filter on a 1998 Kawasaki KLF300 Bayou 4X4?


It should be on the front of the engine and may have a round cover over it that has fins on it or is ribbed.
