SOURCE: I need to adjust the

To adjust your valves you will need a few standard tools and most importantly a set of feeler gauges. You can buy these at any automotive store. The first step is removing the tank and valve cover to gain access to the valve train. You will see both the intake and exhaust cams plus the tops of the valves. This is where you will be measuring with the feeler gauge. The next thing would be to rotate the motor to top dead center. You will need to remove both inspection covers that are on the side of your ignition cover. This will give you access to the timing marks and to the bolt that allows you to turn the motor over.

Check in your manual as to what direction to turn the motor over. You do not want to turn the motor over in the wrong direction. Turn the motor over looking into the inspection (top) hole. You will notice a mark on the fly wheel. When you see this mark come around, look up at the cams. There should be two punch marks on the cam gears that line up with the gasket surface towards the outside of the head. At this point you should be at top dead center compression. Check the lobes of the cam, they should not be touching the valve buckets. If they are touching the valve buckets, this means that you are 180 degrees out of time. Rotate the motor 180 degrees and then start to measure.

After you measure the clearance between the cam lobe and the valve bucket, you will want to write that down. You will then need to check your numbers against the spec's provided in your service manual. If you are outside the specified range, you will need to remove your cams and replace the shims. There should be a chart in your manual that will help you to decide what shims you will need to bring you within the safe range. When dealing with the KXF250 or the RMZ 250, you want to make sure you use the correct shims. There are two types that will fit these bikes, but only one is the correct shim. Shims come both forged and sintered. They look the same until you put them under a magnifying glass, then the difference is very clear. The forged shims have a smooth surface, while the sintered shims have very small cavities. Using the sintered shims will prematurely wear the coating off of the valve stem. This will shorten valve life and cause the valves to go out of adjustment sooner.

Now, after replacing the shims, all that is left is to reassemble your machine. Pay closer attention to the instructions in your owners manual. Always double check your cam timing with what is recommended in the manual. Do not start your bike without turning the motor over by hand first. If you feel it is unusually hard to turn over or it will not turn over, you probably are off on your cam timing. Once again, do not try and start the bike. Go back and retime your cams.

SOURCE: 2000 yz125 - Water pump seal change

The two seals in the diagram below are separated by the casing they fit into. The impeller is threaded to screw onto the impeller shaft. I think you already knew that by your "holding the tire" note. The center casing does not get split. The right casing does remove then a wrench is used on the shaft as the impeller unscrews counter clockwise. It is risky to "Lock the wheel" because the gear on the impeller is very thin and can break.

A “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!

Can I fit a SUZUKI RM 250 Engine into a 2000 RM 125 frame?


Hi, Anthony sounds like something I would try when I was a kid but after careful deliberation 4 out 5 Suzuki Gods give this one a thumbs down, but just to be on the safe side you should give your local dealer's parts/service department a call to confirm it's just not worth the time trouble and expense you would be better off getting a used 250 bike.

I have an 86 rm 250,replaced water and oil seals twice still getting water in oil. What gives?


The problem is common in 2 stroke watercooled bikes ,what happens is the head gasket leaks and the leaking burnt gases pass the gasket and sneak into the water jacket which highly compresses the cooling system and blows the water past the water pump seals and into the gearbox,mixing with the oil and making a vile mayonnaise mixture,make sure when you fitted the seals you fitted them the right way around the main sealing lips should both face their fluid they are keeping out and the impeller shaft should be free from and scoring or damage where the seals touch it.p.s im a fully qualified motorcycle mechanic with over 20 years experience so im not just guessing at an answer

Your water pump seal is leaking. It is mixing coolant with the transmission fluid.

Gear box oil mixing with water


Usually most gear boxes have a rubber vent tube somwhere, I think you must be submerging this tube while using or washing the bike.

How do i remove the water pump on a 1999 suzuki rm 250


hi,drop the oil, remove the right hand casing. undo the water pump casing. remove the impeller (10mm bolt) dont lose the copper/ally washer. draw the drive shaft from the inside of the casing. remove the bearing. remove the seals, keep note which way round the seals are. they should be opposite. one keeps oil in and the other keeps the water out of the oil. if there are any score marks on the drive shaft,replace it , as it will only leak again. to put it back together, just reverse process. hope this helps. kev.
