I have a 1988 KX 250. I have worked on a lot of sleds but this is my first bike.
The bike has two problems. the first is milky oil. I have ordered a new water pump shaft seal and am going to pick it up tomorrow. The other problem I am having is the kick starts slips. I did tear down far enough to get the kick start shaft out and all of the gears and ratchet mechanism seem to be fine. I did notice that when I pull the clutch only the outside three plates move towards the outside. I am wondering if this is normal or a problem, also would this cause the kick start to slip? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, the manual I ordered has not done me a whole lot of good.
