Oil Filter spring

I just recently traded my DRZ for a 97 KLX300.
When I started to change the oil, I found a spring in the oil filter compartment, just laying there. I don't see any indication in the service manual that there is supposed to be a spring in there.

It does have a K&N filter.

Anyone know where that spring goes ?

Do you mean it was lying in the oil filter area? If so it goes in the middle of the tongs to put pressure out against the oil filter.

300R float height

Anyone know the measurement for float height on my 2004 KLX300R with stock CVK carb?

My bike starts and runs extremely well - yes, I've hand-started it. Unfortunately it's puking gas on my barn floor when I leave it unattended for a bit and the petcock on.

Odd thing is it's puking through the bowl drain hose - not an overflow. May just need to loosen and reseat the drain screw. Anyway, the carbs coming off because I don't know what the jetting is - and I may want to ante up for a pumper, but in the meantime - I don't want gas on my floor.

Never mind on that previous post - float height.

I have a TM36-68 enroute.

desert tire recommendation?

I am looking for new tires for my 2003 KLX. I ride in the desert around Las Cruces, Nuevo Mexico. It is a lot of hard, rocky riding. I want tires that can withstand the rocks and not get torn up in a few miles. Sorry if this has already been addressed, I did not do a search. I appreciate hearing about your recommendations and experiences. Thanks!

Kenda Parker Desert or Maxxis Desert IT. I think the Parker front tire may be one of the best desert tires I've tried. It's the most resistant to side knob ripping that I've used.

80/90-21 vs. 90/90/21 ???

For the 2003 KLX300 - I think the front tire size is 80/90-21, is this correct? I find a limited choice of tires in the 80/90-21 size, but more tires in the 90/90-21 size. How critical is the size? Does it matter that much? I do not know. Also, the rear tire is 100/100-18, right? I find a good number of tire choices in this size. Thanks for any help!

How to Prevent Kick Starter from Getting Stuck

I'm a new owner for a 2001 KLX300. After riding on some rough stuff this weekend, I hear a whirring noise coming from the engine. Looking down, I noticed the kick starter was stuck behind the aluminum guard that protects the brake hose (going from the brake reservoir to the master cylinder). I was able to get the kick starter unstuck, but during the day it got stuck 2 or 3 more times. I got a bit paranoid and was looking down periodically, but never figured out how it gets stuck.

Looking at some photos on the web, I noticed on my bike the wire tab that is suppose to keep the kick starter in place has been broken off. I've also read this can cause major damage to the transmission, so I'd like to find some way to prevent this. Any ideas? Maybe a Works Connection frame guard will prevent the kick starter getting stuck?

Thanks,
Tom
