KX250 / KX125 / 1992 kx 125 2nd gear issue
« Last post by Ryan_g on December 03, 2020, 01:55:46 PM »
New to the forum would like to say hey and could use some help here dont know much about the bike I bought it on a whym for a great price I couldn't turn down its a 92 kx 125 when the bike isn't running I can shift all the gear perfectly no issues when the bike is running it will shift in to 1st gear no problem but when you try to shift from first to second you feel a slight grind in the shifter and it won't go but if you get the bike moving in second gear it will go through the rest of the upper gears with out an issue at first I was thinking clutches but realized the guy had the cable way to over adjusted so I fixed that and this issues isn't going away im just seeing if someone can point me in the right direction before I go ahead and split the case to further investigate

Thanks

I don't notice anything odd about my new style triple clamps and Emig stem. I also have an underbar steering damper and newer style forks. I love the setup.

I donít think you will have to much trouble jetting it, once you find a good baseline. I know some people like the Yamaha dual tapers and others like the Suzuki triple tapers. I guess it depends on what you have or feel more comfortable with.

Mmmm most interesting.. I've heard someone say one of the benefits of the 38 airstriker is they are easier to jet. Doesn't sound that way!

Thanks for the reply lads, I'll get my hands on a N8RW needle and have a crack with that. Will also start with the 48 pilot. Real keen to see how it goes

My riding buddy put one in his cr500 conversion. It worked flawlessly after he replaced the solenoid it come with. The one it came with seemed to be a cheaper lawnmower type. We replaced it with a streetbike type from cyclegear and it has been perfect since. The one it came with would hang open. My friend just purchased the smallest lithium or agm battery he could find and we put it in his airbox.
