Hello All,

I just replaced the rubber boot at the power valve cover on my KDX250. Now I have a question about re-assembly of the power valve arm and valve rod...

When the power valve on a KDX250 opens, does the governor rod go in or out to actuate the valves? I haven't run the bike without the cover, but I'm guessing it moves "out"...

I was surprised that there was no "keying" on the governor shaft coming out of the case to help you align the lever (like on a KDX200)... I held the valve shaft "in" (side valves closed) and put the lever in place and tightened the nut on the shaft coming out of the case... sound OK? I rode the bike and it seems OK to me. Please advise... soon!:eek:

Thanks...

Brett and Spanky...

Thanks for the replies...

Brett, yes, my "seat-of-the-pants" dyno felt OK, but it was good to get the "official" word from Spanky!

Thanks guys!
