normal for the carby klx
If anyone has a chain guard or as Kawasaki calls it the "chain case" they would part with, I don't have one and failed the DMV safety inspection for not having it on the bike . Who knew? And why would you take it off?
Couldn't be because it really serves little purpose, not being adequate to provide any protection for anything. If they really had any use you'd see them on off road bikes, but you don't. Clearly the CT DMV must have some financial interests in the chain case molding business...
I have one and would part with it. email me.
Exactly what mine has done since I got it... pretty sure it is perfectly normal.
Photo of links and stand.
Sorry about the bad photo. From foot to center of pivot bolt mine is 13.25. If you have no problem with home made links I'll swap. It would be interesting to see the bikes side by side.
What brand/model Bark Busters fit on a stock 2007 handle bar the easiest?
I would rather pay extra money then pay Tetris all day.
I've got the barkbuster brand on my 09.
What I highly recommend is using the triple clamp mount instead of the handlebar mountings. It makes brake line and clutch cable routing much easier.
i ve run Tusk ones for the past 2 years on both my klx's. After many encounters with trees, falls and palmettos .. they still look great and havent bent!
I put mine on a renthal bar, but I have to say that my acerbis ones fit very nicely and are very solidly built. They came off a crashed drz400sm on eBay for $45.
I bought a $20 set of imitation Acerbis on ebay. They needed a slight bend at the inside to hit the mount right. I put it on the floor and stomped really hard on it to get the small bit of bend. Would have been simple child's play if I had my vise mounted on the bench. It worked fine.
I'm looking for a chain guard for a 2009 KLX, I checked Ebay but nothing there.
I have mine on the shelf. I think I mentioned that before. What's it worth to ya? PM me. I have no need for it.
Thanks . I did respond started a conversation. For some reason I can't PM.
@markk53 only gets PM's when cash is involved... JK
You betcha! How else will I get my retirement villa in the Bahamas? My dad didn't leave me $4,000,000 to work with like some who claim to be self made.
so i got a problem... a costly one...
the klx351 wont start.. and my mechanic buddy and i concluded its the exhaust cam ACR is wore out.
I looked. They dont sell just the ACR.. you gotta buy the whole thing.. $244 for the exhaust cam.
heres where im hesitant...
What if i buy this new cam and it still doesnt work?
Should i bite the bullet on fixing it? or say F*** it and Part it out?
I don't have any experience with a big bore but all who've done the MCM have disabled the ACR so the bike will start without it. I wouldn't think adding a few more cc's would make that much of a difference. Have you checked compression or valve clearances? If the journals are worn from lack of oil keeping exhaust valve open or worn rings either of these can cause low compression.
Others have said they did the 351 with removed ACR. I'm not buying that is definitely the problem, but then again, I'm not recalling many at all who claimed the ACR is wore out. How many miles on it?
As BornAgain mentioned, check valve clearance and compression. Also do a leak down test.
Do you have any oil in your coolant, or v/v? There's been an occasional cracked 351 sleeve and bad head gasket.
Guys have run the KLX650s without the ACR and they definitely work hard to turn over. I agree, something besides the ACR. - unless it is stuck closed and opening the exhaust valve when it shouldn't. If that's the case you have options, but I'm thinking the best one is to remove it. Others would be grind off rivets and take off the shoes rendering it useless, try lubing up the joints, working the shoes, and putting on a new spring.
If the compression release is not stuck then it should bump start.
