Hey guys i'm new to the forums and i would like to say hi and a pre-thank you to all.
I first got my KX from my brother who lives in maryland and said if i came and got it, it would be mine for free. so i took a honda element and cramed the bike in all the way back to beautiful florida well i noticed the damages immediatly sence he left it in a so called friends trailer(you know how it goes from there).
No air filter
Kick assembly lever broke off
clutch lever broke
Sprocket and chain need replacement
Rear Tire replacement
....but other than that its a free bike and i cant complain. i got a K&N air filter, rebuilt the top-end with a Wiesco Piston and Gasket kit. got all new levers. after the rebuild we went through the break-in but on the third stage the spark plug fouled out and we called it a day. before we went out the next day we changed the transmission oil to what at the time i didn't know was wrong, Specter gold 10w 40 4stroke! the guy at KAWI gave me the wrong stuff and i was to dumb to look myself. once we got the bikes off the truck i kicked the bike up and it started like a champ. but when i was going through the gears it would go 1st, N, 2,----transition to Neutral almost automatically. no grinding or anything it just feels like i lost 3,4,5,6.
well after being crushed from what i saw as a failed rebuild and then having my son about 3 weeks later i stopped working on the bike.
...I've been doing some reading after i noticed i had the wrong oil and i dumped the transmission oil out a when i tried to go through all the gears
1,N,2,3,4,5,6. i was looking like this i rushed to KAWI and got GearSavers75 got new spark plugs and filled up the tranny.
tried the gears and i only have 1,N,2,-----Neutral!!!!!
Whats wrong and what can i do. i can do some motor work but splitting the case is out of my department.
