He Tires

  • Change your tires to paddle tires or sand tires. These are available at most motorcycle shops or online retailers. These tires enable you to push and stay on top of the sand, giving you traction where normal tires would not work.
The Air Filter
  • Use a heavily oiled air filter with a sock protector around the outside. This provides extra protection where fine sand particles could bypass your air filter, and enter your engine causing significant damage. Clean and oil your filter frequently when riding in the sand.

The Fuel Filter
  • Use an in-line fuel filter or, if you already have one, change it frequently. This will keep fine debris from the sand from entering the engine through the fuel system.

SOURCE: is the 1988 suzuki as power full as the new rm 125

That is a hard question to answer. A stock 1988 will not beat a 2010. If you have motor work done and suspension set up right it might run with a new one. The technology is far superior in the new bikes. A stock new motor is far more powerful than an old bike. The suspension is where you will get alot of your speed also. The new stock suspensions are darn near race ready with minimal tweeking.

SOURCE: My grandson has a rm 125. he is a little short.

My son has raced for years, and every time he moved up a bike size and was a little small for it, I cut down the seat for him. It's actually pretty easy to do, and if you look closely a lot of pro's cut their seats as well. Remove the staples from the bottom of the seat and pull the cover off to expose the foam. I typically will mark the foam with a black marker, making a gradual curve from 0 to 2' down where his **** is and back to zero again at the rear. An electric carving knife works great, but a hacksaw blade will do a nice job as well. After cutting the height down, fold the seat cover at the seams, center it on top of the foam and trace the original width of the seat in black marker around the cover. Then taper the foam on each side back to it's original width. I then buff the knive marks out with a open rasp or a scotch brite pad. Restretch the cover from the middle first to both ends, an electric stapler works best with 5/16 staples. Trim the excess cover with a razor and your finished. Good luck!

what year is the bike? make sure the comp screws are adjusted right in clockwise, then wind it 11 cicks anti clockwise. if it is still too soft add a bit more oil. about 1 fluid oz to each fork leg up to 2 fluid ozs. as long as you have the right amount of oil in the forks in the first place. if this is still too soft you will need to put heavier sprins in. hope this helps. cheers kev.

First, try the cable adjustment at the lever end, if no more movement re-adjust inwards, then adjust at the clutch end.
If no joy, then it is either the lifter mechanism or the clutch its self.

I want my powerband to come in at a lower rpm. it comes in at 3/4 qt throttle! 96 rm 125

You can experiment with different expansion chambers. The cone shape of the chamber bounces a sonic shock wave back to the exhaust port. The wave forms a pressure "wall" at the port to "seal" the exhaust port so intake gasses don't escape. Change the wall timing and you change the powerband. This is the expensive way and with no guarantees. The bike may already have the best possible chamber.

I suggest you go a different route. Just go up about four teeth on the rear sprocket or down one tooth on the front sprocket. This will mean the bike will have a lower top speed but more torque and earlier powerband relative to mph speed. Bottom line is you will come out of the hole quicker with higher revs and reach the powerband sooner. The loss of top speed is overcome by the speed out of the corners. Generally, more time is spent in first, second and third than the brief moments spent in fifth or sixth.

Please consider a top rating for this solution. Thanks!

Any way to adjust the rear shocks on a 1996 vulcan 1500-a10 ?

dear susan shock adjustment for the rear shock are done with c wrench. you will notice at the top of the shocks there is a ring with 3 adjustment cams. the wrench is placed in the two holes you see on the shock opposite each other this is where the wrench fits you simply turn either direction for softer or harder ride. this adjustment puts more or less tension on the spring. i own a 96 vulcan as well hope this will help you jim

1996 rm 125 has clutch problems. The quater inch play does not work, new cable, aftermarket clutch with springs,fibers,steele.

Did you check the main crank drive gear i had a 96 rm 125 with that problem. Its a cheap fix if thats the case but the only problem is that the engine needs to removed and the case needs to be be split. If thats not the problem with the case split it should be ovious.
