Question about kawasaki KX 250 Motorcycles
How to fix kickstart on kx250 2000. @

SOURCE: kickstart problem
Your bike has an automatic de-compression lever that helps when starting. This mechanism will make it feel like the bike has low compression. If it is maladjusted, it may be causing the problem
check here for adjustment procedures to be sure that it is set up correctly.
Other than that, low compression pretty much means top end rebuild.

Once u have the piston out then there is a tool you can use for extracting the rings or you can simply use strips of tin and slide it behind the rings from were the two ends of the ring meet and slide them round the piston. Be very careful when putting the new rings on because ther are quite brittle

The clutch lever must have been pushed in when i tried to install the push rod the first time so the push rod didn't get pushed in all the way.

There is reputed and there is actual horsepower!
A reputed 52.5 Hp for the 1990 is not right.
A reputed 57.5 Hp for the 2007 maybe right...at the crank.
You lose 8%-10% at the wheel, 5% more with an O-ring chain.
Standard KX250 would be around 42-45 Hp in peak condition. Intake mods, jets, expansion chamber and some porting changes may give you more but it's give and take...you will lose bottom or mid-range and tractibility will go out the window with a very peaky motor. Computer search KX250 forums and canvas the responses and also look for generic KX250 link's.
