SOURCE: Kawasaki KMX 125 losing power

hi man,
I had a similar problem, so maybe I can help you. it can be connected with air filter. under your seat there should be some kind of cover on the air filter. just remove it. I've noticed this problem when I unrestricted my KMX 125. the hole on the cover on the air filter is too small.

SOURCE: how to remove the fork oil for kawasaki kmx 125

you cannot remove the oil ,these units are sealed for life and never need changing ,to remove the unit to fit new seals where available you remove the fork then put it in the vice and use a allen key down the middle to seperate the unit ,this is not for the novice as its quite complicated and requires a long 1/4 drive extension with the appropiate allen key socket on the end hence the vice to hold it still .You should not need to change the oil ever in this sort of unit

KMX 125 -99 i need to ask what part is controlling the thermostat/ignition. the thermostat is pending between normal temperature to very high temperature, when this happened the bike was happen to...


Hi, Alex the thermostat on your bike is controlled by coolant temperature when the bike is cold the thermostat is closed as the coolant heats up the thermostat begins to open if your coolant is overheating the usual suspects are:
1. Low coolant level.
2. Restricted radiator air flow.
3. Faulty thermostat.
4. Coolant pump or fans inoperative.
5. Vent hose crimped.
6. Air in the coolant and needs bleeding.
7. Engine idling too long or bike moving too slow.
8. Coolant too old needs to be replaced.

Overheating problem


overheating sound like faulty thermostat.thermostat either sticking close or could have blown headgasket if you see a lot of white smoke coming out of exhaust.if headgasket is leaking check engine oil should look milky.also check water pump look around weep hole or see coolant leaking around water pump replace water pump.also check water pump drive belt.make sure drive belt not loose slipping.

Do you have any ideas how to adjust supply of 2t oil that cause too much smoke and oil coming out from exhaust pipe?a newly overhaul kmx 125, 2002 model .


You adjust the oil via the oil pump. The throttle cable splits, one section goes to the carb and the other to the pump, you adjust the play/tension of the wire on the pump, while pulling back the throttle to see if it's aligning properly at full throttle and idle. Two strokes tend to be very smokey so unless the smokes an unusual colour it's usually not a problem. I have a Kmx 125 with a 200cc engine, I prefer running slighty rich on oil, better than running slightly lean! :)

Overheating


OVERHEATING CAN BE CAUSE BY MANY THINGS LIKE FAULTY THERMOSTAT AND FAULTY RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP,TOO MUCH WATER IN COOLANT SYSTEM NEED 50 / 50 WATER AND ANTIFREEZE.LOOK FOR WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE LEAK, IF COOLANT LEAKING OUT WEEP HOLE WATER PUMP BAD NEED REPLACING.CHECK FOR LOW COOLANT LEVEL, YOUR RADIATOR OVERFLOW JUG SHOULD HAVE COOLANT AT THE FULL COLD MARK IF NOT KEEP ADDING COOLANT INTO COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG UNTIL COOLANT STOP DROPPING AND FULL COLD MARK, IF OVERFLOW COOLANT JUG WAS EMPTY RADIATOR IS LOW ON COOLANT.WHICH CAUSE AIR IN COOLANT SYSTEM KEEPING THE ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR FROM BEING SUBMERGE IN HOT COOLANT WHICH TURN ON THE COOLANT FANS.WHEN ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE GET CERTAIN SET TEMPERATURE LIKE 190 DEGREES THE PCM AND COOLANT SENSOR WILL TURN ON COOLANT FANS, IF VECHICLE OVERHEATING COOLANT FANS NOT WORKING EITHER YOU HAVE FAULTY ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR CHECK COOLANT FANS FUSE AND RELAYS. YOU CAN CODE SCAN CAR TO SEE IF YOU HAVE FAULTY PCM, FAULTY ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OR FAULTY COOLANT FAN RELAY.IF COOLANT FAN AND ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OKAY,YOU HAVE CORRECT COOLANT LEVEL IN COOLANT SYSTEM, THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP BEEN REPLACED, YOU COULD HAVE BLOWN HEAD GASKET CHECK ENGINE OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE HEAD GASKET BLOWED ALSO WHEN HEAD GASKET BLOWED YOU CAN DRIVE CAR SHORT DISTANCE START OVERHEATING AND YOU LOOSE ENGINE POWER SUSPECT BLOWED HEAD GASKET.

Overheating


Maybe headgasket, butbbefore you disasemble the engine check the condition of he water pump,remove the cover and check the impellor has not parted from the shaft, if you can turn the impellor without the engine turning and the impellor doesnot turn when the engine is rotated this may be the fault, you could also check water circulation by starting the engine, may also be thermostat not opening, if you have already checked the above, it is a likely cause that pressure is leaking from the cylinder into the cooling system, ie head gasket, as previously stated only revert to this when all the other checks have been completed

Leaky oil from small hole under the radiator pump.


The oil leak is probably a seal on the water pump shaft, There is one seal to keep the water in and another seal to keep the oil in, the small hole is a telltale hole between the two to let you know there is a problem. Dont remove the thermostat, any overheating problem could have something to do with the water pump seal

I've intrepid car has overheating problem has thermostat, working water pump, and keeps overheating


Might be blown head gasket. Is there oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil? Either of these would tell you that.
Also the exhust can get into the coolant and make the coolant low all the time.
I had two Chrysler products that the exhaust forced coolant out and had a bad head gasket.
