Stiffer or softer?For O-ring chains you can't use anything aggressive. Take off the chain warm water dish detergent and soap. Then, scrub till the chain is clean.,,,

The front suspension is messed up and i dont know how to deal with it? right now its said to be in first gear but the chain is in 2nd and once i change it to 2nd gear the chain ends up being on the 3rd...

I think you might be confusing some terminology.

The Front "suspension" is the fork assembly that holds your front wheel and goes up and down. The shock absorber or suspension.

The part in the middle of the bike that the chain changes between 1,2 and 3 gears is the crankset and relates to the front shifting. The shiftlever on the left of the handlebars would be the part that indicates the 1, 2 or 3 numbers.

To get the front derailleur (changer) to shift into the proper gears the cable must be under the correct tension and limit stops adjusted correctly. Shift the lever into the #1 position and check the cable tension. is it very loose? can you wiggle it easily side to side or up and down? if yes, then you need to tighten the cable by loosening the bolt at cables attachment of the derailleur and then pulling out the slack, tighten the bolt again and check your shifting . If that does not work then take the bike into a bike shop and have them look at it, something too difficult to explain may be happening.

Easy way to change the rubber track?

Only one way to change the track. Unspring the rear suspension springs, pull the four suspension bolts, lay the machine on it's side with the chain case up, yank out the suspension, open the chain case and unbolt the gears, lift out the gears and chain, unbolt the drive bearings on each side, pull out the drive axle the track will come with it. Be sure to replace the drive axle bearings you take out or you will have to go through the whole procedure to replace the bearings later. While the suspension is out take any joint or suspension axle apart clean and re grease it. Also, check all your bogie wheel bearings and spacers . Replace any worn , broken, or damaged bearings and plastic slider parts. When you go to put the suspension back in, measure the distance between the frame mounting holes. Use a tie down strap to hold the rear suspension a-arm cross tubes at the measured distance of the mounting holes. When you drop the suspension back into the track loop now the tunnel holes will line up with the threaded holes.

Just purchased a 99 vfr honda and was wondering how to adjust chain ?

Should be adjusters just behind the rear axle. You loosen the axel bolt and turn the adjusters, making sure to keep them equal. Do not overtighten, as the chain needs some slack for the suspension to move without stretching the chain. You should get the owner's manual to set the chain tension properly.

The suspension on the front drivers side has a lot of free movement and play in it what could the problem be and would it take long to fix

if their is play & lot of free moment in suspension then it is time to do front suspension work for both side it is better you do front both side suspension work because one on the other if you are finding problem in one side of vehicle then obviously the other side is also got be getting weak you better do both side suspension work at the same time so that the both side are equally balance for better working of suspension on both side the suspension work takes a one full day time around 8 to 10. hrs. is enough for such work to be completed but it also depend on the availability of spare & parts for a trouble free drive do visit your nearest authorized Daewoo motors or GM motors service station

I need a jack, or stand, for servicing the suspension and chain. Cost is important, but safety and reliability are more important. Does anyone have a favorite, and why?

Good ones are a lot of money and a chore to store when you aren't using them ... you may find it better to have this kind of service done at the shop.

I have a poulan micro s25d 33ccm super xxv deluxe model chainsaw and am wondering how much slack should be in a brand new chain that I just put on and have used once?

As to the proper amount of slack in the chain, new or otherwise, is you should only be able to left the chain from the center of the top bar, so that you can only see the drive tooth of one (1) of the links.

Now with a new chain, the trick is to check the slack after the first tank of gas has been consumed, as new chains tend to "relax/stretch" after being put into service.

But with that being said, I always check the chain at each fueling and filling of the bar lube tank too. Better to be safe and get the maximum performance from your chainsaw, and there is no better way than to keep everything in proper working order.

A good rule of thumb is to:
  1. check and readjust/tighten the bar/chain after the fuel tank runs out of gas/oil mix. (wait for the chain/bar to cool before grabbing it with your bare hands!)
  2. Refill the bar/chain oil
  3. Refuel the chainsaw with the proper gas/oil mix, (typically 40:1)
  4. I always add fuel stabilizer to my fuel tank after I'm done using it for the day (who knows when you'll use it again!)
  5. Take a hand file and give the cutting chain a quick "touch up" sharpening before putting it away.
If you follow these steps, you'll always have a working chainsaw, ready and sharp enough to cut when you need it, without any surprizes, etc.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Front right fork, suspension,chain guide

chain needs adjusting or new chain needed, shouldnt be that sloppy, and change both fork seals toghther, its a false economy to change just one, if you do the other will go within a month and cost you double to have the forks removed twice. these are fast bikes and need good maintenace, you would do 180mph with a dodgy fork seals and dodgy chain.

but that is OK. I love riding the smooth 440 and would like to improve it's trail capabilities. I am installing a Rekluse using Quad clutch gearing and plan on putting in a LHRB as well. I've raised the forks in the clamps as high as I can and will look at shortening my chain length a bit if I can. If it steered just a bit faster that would help tooI think the best way is to have your suspension revalved or softened. I was happy with how my Dale worked in the desert but in the tight stuff it would skip around a little. I had TooTech Suspension work on my front and back end. He took some bushings out of the forks to give me a softer top stroke on the front end and it really sticks much better now. Also it hasn't affected the bikes handling in high speed runs. Hope this helps. ,,
