Sounds like your clutch switch is probably broken. Electrical switch attached to the bottom of your clutch perch; pulling the clutch lever in closes the switch, allowing the starter circuit to work. It's safety device. However, it's easy to bypass if parts availability is a issue.

The sidestand switch might be involved as well.

Yeah, for that matter it could just be a loose connection or broken wire in that circuit.

Probably not the side stand switch, based on the symptoms. The side stand switch has a somewhat different function than the clutch switch, though the two do work in conjunction.

2007 Fork spring upgrade

Anyone have the source for the upgraded fork spring? Seems like there was a thread somewhere with a spring upgrade that several people were happy with. (I am familiar with the spring installation procedure) I seem to get a lot of front end dive. I have played with oil weight with some success, but thats not the whole solution. . Any thoughts on where to source the part?

great place for springs, valves, instructions. I can't remember the owners name but he was really helpful. Talked out all my requirements and came to a great solution. Sent the instructions to setup the gold valves and when I ran into a snag I called him up and he talked me threw it. This was my first fork rebuild and I would nit have been able to do it without his help and the internet. http://www.moto-pro.com/

I think JOHN is the guy at moto-pro. He has a great reputation.

There's also Race Tech. I have their springs and gold valves in my forks, and a spring for the shock.

Packed for the first trip, leaving in the morning. Doing part of the trans west Virginia trail, planning for about 900 miles over the next 3 days. Might have to cut it a bit short depending on how the trails are. Have to be back at work Tuesday. I'll try to remember to take enough pictures for a ride report. I always seem to forget to take them.

Remote choke switch

Hey guys, Does anyone know of a source for a remote choke to fit the KLX? I would love to move my switch to the bars. Ridden the bike almost 5K and still have to look for it.

Start ordering farkles for mine on Monday!

I've decided on a complete set of racks from http://www.pmracks.com and a 3.0gal IMS Tank from JustGasTanks.

Picking up a skid plate and a set of handguards through my local guy. I'm going to set up his new inventory system for him in exchange for parts and service items.

Hopefully by the time everything arrives ill have clearance from the surgeon to ride!

Seems you're used to larger displacement bikes, how is the lil 250 working for you?

:(

I don't know! I haven't ridden it yet! In April, I did this to myself:



and have to wait until September to get clearance from the Surgeon to throw my leg over a bike again. I am looking forward to putting the KLX through its paces.

That's why I'm farkling now - might as well do something in the shop that involves motorcycles than drive myself nutz.

Skid Plates!

Just a quick question from the guys that know more than me.

Skid Plates!

Online Retailer tells me that a Skid Plate from a KLX300 will fit the KLX250S. Is this true?

Here is the product description:
