1987 kx 250

My 87 kx 250 has a broken RH exhaust power valve, the valve is now discontinued. Im having a hard time locating this valve everyone tells me i cant get it. Does anyone know where i can get this valve or what year jug i could use with my 87 lower end?

There are a few salvage yards specializing in dirt bikes. Look in the back of Cycle News.

I would try these guys first: "Keep-it-Roostin." Their number is 704-279-0514. If they don't have it, they might be able to dirrect you to someone who does. I think they also sell on E-Bay.

I can check Thurs. but I believe 85-87 were the same. You can check the part numbers at the Kaw website. http://www.kawasaki.com/DefaultFrame...OSEVEHICLE.ASP

Nope. I was wrong. It appears the 87 is differant from other years. The piston, cylinder, and base gasket are all differant from 86, and 87. It appears from the manuals, that if you had an entire and complete 86 top end, it MIGHT be adaptable. Not I bet I would make though.

Looks like the only cylinder that will work on an 87, is an 87. Sorry.
