But I didn't think anything of it. While messing with the brake lights I noticed that it's definitely cockeyed. Looks like the subframe is crooked. Can I just loosen the bolts at the 4 mounting points and subtly twist it?leave the four bolts connected and twist other than subtly (if its not just the seat that is misaligned on its hinges). The best way would be to use a dirt bike frame straightener but its likely your under tail will get in the way.,,

Striped out side panel bolt


"Helicoil" and "keensert" are thread inserts that can repair that stripped hole as long as there is room around the hole for the thread repair insert. "helicoil" takes the less amound of room. Most auto part stores have thread repair kits, all you need to know is the original thread size or bolt.

How to rebuild rear shock 2003 honda crf 450


Put the bike on a stand supporting the bottom of the frame. Remove the seat and sidepanels. Loosen the clamp on the carb to airbox boot at the rear of the carb. Loosen the muffler clamp, remove muffler mounting bolts and pull muffler. Remove the 4 rear subframe bolts. Remove the rear subframe (leave airbox and rear fender assembled in it). You are now staring at a completely exposed rear shock. Remove the shock mount bolts and remove the shock. Measure the spring adjusted length for a future starting point when the spring is put back on. Loosen both spring pre-load adjuster spanner nuts all the way. Helps if you clean the dirt off the threads and use a little lube. Pull the spring towards the spanner nuts and remove the clip ring at the opposite end spring holder. that's it.

Taking the motor out of my dirtbike


The motor mounts at 4 points-cylinder head, 2 under the front of the motor, and the swingarm pivot bolt. In order remove- seat,tank,rear subframe,exhaust.Remove the motor mount at the rear of the head, leave the throttle cables on the carb, unplug the wires to the TPS and remove the carb.Bag it and tie it up out of the way. Remove top bolt of rear shock and the swingarm bolt, pull the entire swingarm and suspension back as far as you can-you'll need the room to back the motor up a little to get it out of the frame. Unplug the ignition wires, and remove the last 2 mounting bolts from the front of the motor thru the frame. from the left side of the bike, back the motor up and rotate the front toward you and it comes right out. Actually took a break from installing a fresh Honda 250 R motor to write you this tip! Good luck!

How do I get to the battery on a 1994 suzuki rf600r... how is the set removed?


hi, ime fairly sure you will find this is key operated, you should find the lock on the lefthand side of the seat subframe, some models have 2 locks 1 for the front seat and 1 for the rear, also check on the underside of the subframe you may find it concealed in a small hole in the plastic undertray, hope this helps, paul

Forks are out of alignment


STAND IN FRONT OF THE BIKE FACING THE HEADLIGHT. STRADDLE THE FRONT WHEEL AND CLAMP THE WHEEL BETWEEN YOUR LEGS. NOW "TWIST" THE HANDLEBARS TO A STRAIGHT POSITION. IT MAY REQUIRE A FEW TWEAKS BUT THE PROCESS IS NOT HARD.

How do i remove and clean the carburetor on a 2005 Yamaha YFZ 450? i could not find my model .but it is a 2005 YFZ 450v


The easiest way is to remove the seat and then remove the entire rear sub-frame - the airbox is attached to the subframe, so it will go with the subframe. Loosen the rear clamp on the intake boot. The sub-frame is only held on by three bolts so it's a piece of cake to remove.

Once the subframe is off, the carb will be wide open and easy to remove from there.
