Suzuki / Re: RM400 creeping clutch
« on: January 15, 2019, 01:51:03 AM »
has the sleve on the input shaft the clutch basket spins on been crushed by overtightening the nut?needle bearing that runs on the sleve ok?both will give creeping along with badly galled clutch basket fingersi. remember an  dr650 that you couldn't tighten the clutch hub nut to specs coz no clearance on the sleve/trust washers so just tighten till it started to grab and back off till it was free and use the lock tab to stop the nut from undoing.found a lot of suzukis like that

Tech Talk / Re: Exhaust port height on Piston-port 250 ?
« on: January 12, 2019, 12:35:58 AM »
I raised the exhaust port on my ts185a 1.5mm and it took a lot off the bottom end power to the point its just usable for puttering around my farm but great for circle work which is what I mainly use it for,i also cleaned up/dedagged the transfers and opened up the intake port to take a 32mm carb which yet to fit as it goes well on the std 26mm carb though I might try an er185 29mm oval bore carb next.as Pokey said suck it and see if its suit your riding style,take a few different spockets with you to get the power in the sweet spot.

yeah some sellers have no idea and sell junk that should be scrap metal after all all you are buying is a perch and pivot bolt and could buy it new down your local bike  shop for the same money or better

well done Jimson.like you I like going to the dump shop that's run by local life line here  and I often find good stuff to buy off them.im lucky where I am that if the council loader not there theres no one to stop me putting steel in the back of my ute or trailer,i try to leave with more weight then I came with and love to recycle/repurpose things that would either be buried or sent to china for scrap steel.a good way to save money also and free up money to keep my old bikes going.

true it would prevent frame speading compared to just bashing the bolt out with the biggest hammer you can find but best way to prevent the bolt seizing in the 1st place is remove often and put plenty of grease on it before reassembly then no problem done the track,something that could be done at a factory level as they assemble dry when it comes to axle/swingarm and engine mounting bolts.im not a fan of high pressure washers/cleaners as at 2000psi the water goes into places you don't want it to go,i prefer the old bucket of soap suds/a sponge and good old low pressure hose/elbow grease,takes longer but you get in where the blaster wont and the bike looks a lot cleaner
