Im pressing a new time chain sprocket on to the crank. There is no keyway or markings. Iv read that you align centre of one tooth with centre of woodruff on the crank?? Can anyone confirm?

Suzuki / RM400 flywheel weight?
« on: July 02, 2018, 09:38:07 AM »
Its a great torquey engine but I would like to smooth out the power delivery on my 1978 RM400. I think a bit of flywheel weight would be perfect.
Is there anything out there that would bolt on and work?.. eg PE? other year model? etc.. ???
Or is the only option adding weight to my existing one? If so does anyone have experience with this mod?

There you go, he didnt even have oversize pegs. 40 year old dirt bikes taking a pounding anything can happen.

I just put a set of generic pit bike pegs on my 78 RM. some very minor grinding to fit.
I put big pegs on all my vintage bikes and have never snaped the mount, maybe it depends how much you weigh??

I knew this would happen, I had one sitting on the shelf for years then I gave it away.
Anyone got one to get me out of trouble so I can do the next Vinduro.

Straight to the forum for imformation or serious questions and answers. If only it was easier to post pictures on here.
