Question about 1990 Suzuki RGV 250 L

1 Answer

Chain lately it feels like the chain is slipping. When i start out in first the bike will go but then slip and catch. It does that throughout my speeding up. I've been looking for manuals for it but am unable to find any. If anyone knows the specs for tightening the bike chain or any info on where to find a repair manual for my bike would be greatly appreciated.

Go to any reputable shop/mechanic; you probably need a new chain and/or sprocket...OR Possibly just a chain adjustment. Don't wait around, do it asap, I wouldn' t play with this particular problem.

The chain feels and sounds like it's jumping gears or slipping on the rear sprockets. It does it in all gears. It is a diamondback wildwood large 20"


The rear derailleur needs adjusting, once to establish limits (so it can't go past high gear or low gear). Everything else is up to you fine-adjusting the shifter to make the bike run quietly. If you're careless about your gear changes, you'll get MOSTLY into one gear but not quite perfectly, so the bike is always trying to start shifting into another gear - that's the sound you hear, the sensation you feel. Fine-tune your shifter positions each time you shift - you'll find a "sweet spot" where the bike runs almost perfectly silently.

No, they can't readily do that at the factory, not with chain drives. There are just too many things that can affect gear changes, and things are in a slightly different position every time you remove & replace the rear wheel, or even loosen & retighten it. Unless you're ready to spend vast dollars on a foolproof shifter system, shifting cleanly is going to be your job and your job alone. It's one measure of your bike riding skill... and the better you get at that skill, the better you feel about it.

...and your bike will like you for it.

When riding the peddles slip,it appears that the chain is engaged and that the axle is slipping and make s the peddles spin, not engaged


If this is a coaster brake bike (single speed, no hand brakes) then the problem might be inside the rear wheel hub. If that is the case then you can only fix it by completely dis-assembling the rear wheel hub - or it might be simply that the chain is slipping, which would not happen unless the chain is too loose which would be indicated by the bottom of the chain hanging down too low. However, if this is a multi-speed bike, then it could be that the chain and rear-wheel cogs are worn - which can be fixed by replacing the freewheel and the chain - however, it takes a lot of use or rust and dirt before that level of wear happens.

On mountain bike the chain or peddles seem to slip or click goning up a hill. Is it the chain slipping or worn gear?


It sounds like your chain is loose. Flip the bike over and loosen up the nuts on the back tire and tighten the nuts as you are pulling the rim back making the chain as tight as you can. You might need someone to help you pull as you tighten the nuts.

Putting the cahin back on???duh???


If the chain has just slipped of the best way get it back on is to physically lift it into place at the top of the chain ring (the cog where the pedals are).
Then turn the pedals in the direction you would usually pedal (you may have to lift the back wheel off the ground).
This ought to pull the chain back on and let you get back on the open road.

When peddling the pedels slip


Check your chain and see if you have a link that is stiff. If so, this can cause the chain to slip over the gears. You can try soaking it in oil or WD40 and once its free put some chain lube on it. Hopefull this will help. Good luck!

Chain Slipping


Your chain would have to be incredibly loose to slip the sprocket. Enough that it would come off the bar before jumping the teeth on the rear sprocket. Highly unlikely.

My chain sounds like it keeps slipping


It is not slipping unless your sprockets are SHOT.

There should be about 3/4 inch play in the center bottom of your chain when the bike has a normal load on it (read YOU).

Now then, your clutch could be slipping ... have you adjusted it?

I hope this helps you

Slipping


Your rear sprocket is worn. As your put the pressure on the pedals the chain is riding over the teeth and makes a crunching sound. The teeth could appear slightly hooked. You will probably find this does not happen in a different gear. You need to replace both the cassette (rear sprocket assembly) and the chain together because the chain wears to match the sprocket and if you just replace one you will still get the slipping. The front chain ring also wears but at a much slower than the rear so check it as well. Also check the rear derailleur that it is tensioning the chain correctly and not damaged or if the bike is a single speed the rear wheel is positioned to give the correct chain tension.

Chain slips on up hill grade only and I've pulled the rear tire back to tighten the chain as much as possible.


You may want to take your bike down to a local shop and have them put a chain guage on the chain to see if the chain is stretched... This should be a free service...
If the chain is stretched, it will tend to want to jump when under pressure... if this is the case, the chain should be replaced before further damage to the gears occurs...
