Question about kawasaki KX 125 Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a 98 KX 125 and my clutch cable has no tension it just swings freely. I tried adjusting the cable but it still does absolutely nothing, when I pull the clutch lever I see the cable moving but the arm on top of the motor doesn't stay back and cocked. I don't know if my cable broke inside the engine or came disconnected, I pulled the clutch off and I notice the bearing in the middle that has the hole for the push rod is a good half inch away from the push rod. When the clutch is on without the cover on I can push it the half-inch into the push rod. Is it supposed to push in like that? @

Hi, Xxdirtbikede the answer to this question is way above my pay grade for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

SOURCE: 2006 yz 125 breaking push rod in clutch

That is a bit strange. Did the previous owner install stronger springs than the stock ones? Compare the effort to pull your clutch handle to what it takes on a new 125. Be sure you have clean 10w40 motor oil in the gearbox. No synthetics or special additives. Replace the rod and the lever assembly. The rod, lever and oil should eliminate the problem assuming the springs are stock.

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

If the shift pedal shaft does not spring back into position a problem with a spring is indicated. Your bike has two springs tied to shifting. The shaft spring and the index wheel spring. Both springs are still available at Babbitt's. Remove the left case cover and both springs are accessible after removing the clutch. A new gasket is also available.

Please rate this answer. Thanks!.5749bea.gif Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike.

SOURCE: I have a 2001 kawasaki zr7s. My clutch is acting

the "cluch push rod" should be pushed back by the cluch springs, if there was a bearing on the end it would have broken up and be laying inside the cluch case in bits! if you have taken the cluch to bits there is a thrust washer behind the cluch body and gear box shaft if you left this washer out you wont have a cluch? best bet is get a hayns service book for your bike maybe off e-bay and you will have all the info you need to fix it plus all the photos as well of all the parts

How to attach the clutch cable to the engine i have a 00 kx 125 cant figure out the clip on the clutch to cable mechanism


I am not familiar with a 00 kx 125.

Typically, a clutch cable has a barrel (or other special shaped piece) on the end which clips into a holder on the lever OR there is a threaded rod with two nuts on it to allow for adjustment.

I hope this helps.

Toque spec for clutch springs


You can play an adjustment with your spring,the best adjustment is when your bike does't have a running cluth situation, and once you press the cluth lever and release it you'll have power just like jumping .and thats it.

I have 2003 kawasaki kx 125 when you put it in gear with clutch in it jumps forward and dies. where do i start with this?


make sure clutch ,is disengaging properly when you pull in clutch lever,adjust lever until you have about 1/8" freeplay.if still not disengaging, you need to drain gearbox oil, take clutch cover off & inspect clutch pack, you may have friction plates sticking together.
