Re: Basket Cases

Hi Everyone, David, I have managed to get the clutch basket apart on my :kawasaki KT basket case and was wondering what needs to be done to "service" the clutch basket and the steel plates etc... Do you mean to file back the small ridges in the clutch basked left by the plates? What else ...

Re: Basket Cases

On the subject of weights of kickstart levers, many years ago a friend managed to break the beautifully forged and elegantly shaped aluminium kickstart lever on his XR600 and decided to replace it with one that wouldn't let him down. He made it from 20mm diameter round steel bar. Well it didn't brea...

Re: Basket Cases

Hi Everyone, The :kawasaki KX clutch cover was also worth the effort but you may have more luck finding Unicorn Horn? Oh and the only problem was the old kickstarter does not fit, however :kawasaki cleverly fitted a hole big enough for a piece of rope. You know the kind found at the pointy end of a...

Re: Basket Cases

Yes the chrome rim front wheel is from something other than a TY. Does it have a matching backing plate? Are there numbers cast into the inside?

Re: Basket Cases

Hi Everyone, So in my absence, I see Greg and David have been attempting to have a :kawasaki KT clutch lightening "shoot off". So David, with using the TY clutch springs, does that give you any problems with it slipping on say a big hill climb and I would be interested to know, or if any ...

Back on the subject of the Kawasaki clutch pull competition, I noticed that someone else is taking clutch pull seriously and they don't seem to be interested in accuracy

Re: ty250A issues

You can check if the points are having a problem when hot by taking the cover off and having a look when it is playing up.
A faulty capacitor is probably the most common reason for the symptoms you describe.
