On the back mono shock, there is adjustment the raise it up a little bit. The front are usually a gsa type shock, and you can put air into some of them to raise the front.

We have a 2016 SX 125. The front suspension has never been right. My rider says it shakes in the air over big jumps. It appears to go away the longer you ride the bike. What could this be?

possible un- even fork fluid in each fork leg. I had those same symptoms on a RM-125, it took myself a while to figure out what it was.

Rear suspension adjusble?

Usually there is a nut on the shock absorber that lets you tighten the compression.
If you turn the nut clockwise, it will make it stiffer, counterclockwise will make it looser.
Generally, sitting on the bike with your feet raised, it should be compressed 20%. Just tighten or loosen as necessary.

I have the car to low error message on the display the bags are bottomed out and wont raise up. its on a e 500 2003

The suspension has a leak somewhere and/or the airmatic compressor has stopped working properly. You need either the Mercedes star diagnosis system (SDS) in order to access the suspension control module to tell it to raise the vehilce or you can try to trick it by jacking up the car so it thinks it's sitting at the correct ride height. But as long as the display reads a warning it won''t allow the airmatic compressor to run.

How to raise the handle bars? I have been able to loosen the screws, but that only allows the handle to turn freely from front the wheel, not to raise it.

CAREFUL!!!! Go to a professional bike shop and let them see if you have enough stem (about 21/2" to 3") in the top tube. Less than that and it can snap off and you can get seriously hurt. More than likely, if they can raise it, you would only pay a minumum charge (not like a car, probably $5-$10)
It will be more if they have to install a new stem, because it involves taking it apart and putting it back together. But, it will be worth it if you like the bike other than it is not comfortable now. Remember, it is not made to be a cruiser which let you sit upright and are comfortable, Supension bikes are for mountain biking and rough terrain, going downhill and climbing. And you usually ride a smaller frame than normal because of how you ride the bike, too big and you lose control. So, the bars are almost always flat and you lean forward. I hope I answered your question, I have been in business for almost 40 years and do know what I am talking about.

Is the 1988 suzuki as power full as the new rm 125 the rm 1988 has fmf pipe new procircuit shocks back and front new topend rebuilt carberater and new sprocket 13 teeth and new air filter barings back and...

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.

Raising the handlebars

You will need a 6mm allen key to loosen ( turn anti clock wise) the handlebar stem bolt which when you sit on the bike and look down its just under yer nose :)

Please make sure when you raise the handlebars that as it lifts up there is a marking on the side of the handle bar "stem" with markings like this """"" if you see these you need to lower it down so you cannot see these.

Air suspension out (inactive ) code

1. The automatic suspension system on a Land Rover must be placed in a service mode (High Lock) prior to raising the vehicle on a frame-contact hoist. This can only be accomplished by using a Land Rover Test Book Scan tool or an aftermarket equivalent.

2. If the suspension is allowed to hang freely at maximum extension, the suspension controller will enter a fault lockout mode and disable the compressor and height sensors

3. In addition, the suspension system will vent the suspension in an attempt to bring the vehicle to a correct ride height.

4. Since the suspension is hanging free at maximum extension, all the air will be vented, causing the vehicle to sit at maximum low when taken off the frame-contact hoist. A Land Rover Test Book Scan Tool or an equivalent is required to reset the suspension once it has entered the lockout mode.
