Top 20 2004 kawasaki KX 250 Questions & Answers


Sounds like a valve timing problem to me. Put the engine at TDC (top dead center). There will be marks on the cam gear that should be aligned with the top of the head casting. This is something that could be damaging to the engine so be careful. A manual is a good investment.

remove stator cover and flywheel (puller required), verify crankshaft key is not sheered, and stator plate is in its proper position. There is no timing mark on that flywheel because it is irrelevant and not needed.
This is most likely not a flywheel timing issue but a CDI timing issue. The CDI timing is governed by the TPS switch on the carburetor telling the CDI when to change timing maps and curves. If the carburetor is dirty and you cranked up the idle to run off the main circuit instead of the proper idle circuit this can happen. Or you have an improperly set, or failed TPS switch on the carb.

Sounds like a failing ignition coil or trigger. If you let it cool for a long while it will closer to ten minutes and the plug is dark and fluffy then its weak spark. Check the coil ground and wire condition also.

Its a nut and bolt job ,you may have a problem getting the calaper to fit back over the disc .If this is the case drain off a little fluid to allow the caliper piston to be pushed back in the caliper housing ,this gives the pad room to fit over the disc..If in doubt speak to your local kwaka dealers mechanic ,for some good advice .

Hi,

Check the rear bearings, the place where the rear is mounted to the chassis, and your rear spring and mounting.

I hope this is helpful, succes and greetings,

Olivier.

Thats a strange one.For some reason it may be just locked in 2 gears at one time.Lift the bike of the ground onto some sort of stand.Don,t start it.Take the plug out.Run the rear wheel backwards and forward.Clicking the gears at the same time.This might 'unlock' a wound up box.Being off the ground you can't hurt it.Just try different gears and in both directions.I hope this helps,because its a strange problem if all was ok beforehand.Thanks

You can get better traction that way sometimes. I would set to factory specs unless riding in the goo

that will be the clutch you will need to remove the oil and the case and do an inspection to check if parts are worn or broken

Hi, Howard and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at the ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Faulty run/off switch
11. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
12. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

most ignition problems are simple 3 parts - fuel / fire / air

from everything you've already worked on, it seems you must set your IGNITION to FIRE on time at higher rpm .
