My rf600r backfires when im coming down in gears or coming up to a corner or bend i drop down to second gear keep it there for about 10 seconds and bang everyones looking or ducking, is it a major pro

Some popping on deceleration usually means a lean idle mixture.

However, a backfire like you describe, I'd start looking at an exhaust leak, like a bad gasket where the pipes bolt to the head.

Beings it only recently started, and getting more common, yep, sounds like a bad gasket that's not getting any better on it's own.

Humming noise gearbox on suzuki swift when running fisrt and second gear

incorrect oil levels are the main cause for this, it usually starts with low gear to high gear as the level don't reach the gears properly or the other thing to look at is mounting engine and gearbox as when tuque is high then mounts are under a lot of stress, then there's the exhaust system could be near something Re: Jeff

I have older Suzuki ATV 2wd. It won't start, the

you probably have a bad neutral switch, if it doesn't read neutral the light won't come on and the vehicle won't start unless it's in the neutral position. try push starting it in gear and see what happens.

I left the primer selector switch on prime on my atv(lt500 suzuki)i drained the oil twice lots of (gas) in oil,fresh oil in it niw,but atv is still not working very good,any suggestions?thanks

You will have to run the atv and drain the oil when warm a couple of times use cheap mineral oil to do this. do not ride it as the petrol will have broken down the oil protection.When drained twice with fresh oil ,use good oil the third time.How is the atv not working properly,is the air cleaner clean and fresh spark plug fitted.

99 vitara jumps out of 4x4 h gear with loud clunk after few hundred yards

Yes, that should be corrected before you pop a gear tooth. Make sure your linkage is allowing the shift to fully engage.

Jumps into second gear.

dont think its the clutch sounds like a bent shift fork, in first gear starting off the transmission has torque or pressure applied to the first gear set when you let the throttle off (no torque or pressure on tranny) it shifts by its self this is a sign of a bent shift fork hope this helps leave us a rate please

LT 500 ATV clutch adjustment

I havn't come across your Machine before but hopefully a little Q 'n' A will solve/FiXya problem.
O.K. 1st is the clutch cable operated? if so can the cable should be adjustable from the handle bars?(Then take up the slack to leave a slight gap when lever is pulled) Do this by loosening the locking screw on the end of the cable and turning the adjuster anti clockwise so tension is put on the cable Not the lever.
If the cable isn't adjustable from lever go down to the engine and do the same as above on the cable there.
2nd Is the clutch fluid operated (Master Cylinder on clutch lever) If so look for clutch pushrod and adjust it by loosening again the locking nut and winding it out to create less gap between pushrod and clutch arm. You may need to bleed the system if after adjusting still the same.(Come back to me on that if needed)
3rd If when carried out the clutch starts slipping i.e. in top gear Engine Rev's and doesn't move forward well? then release the tension on either cable/pushrod until happy medium.
Good Luck!
