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.

Hi ive got a 2003 rm 250 ive just changed the crank shaft seal and the bike is still smoking but not as bad cud i have oil in my packing in my back box of my exhaust or have i another problem? And the bike...

I would suggest doing a compression check and checking the results against your manual (should be at least 165PSI or so. Low compression will make the bike run rich which would make it smoke excessively. It would also make it hard to start and run poorly with low power. New rings could do wonders.

I want to adjust the suspension on my motorcycle, how do i go about doing this?

Take the bike off its stand onto level ground and stand next to it. While holding your motorcycle upright, put one foot on the foot peg next to you and press hard on it. The front and rear of the bike should squash down and raise at the same rate. If not adjust rear damping compression and rebound to compensate

Now you have a comfortable bike with adequate suspension balance. Now let’s fine tune it a bit. Again there are no tricks to setting up your rear wheel suspension, you have to understand what causes your rear suspension to work. Since rebound occurs after compression we will deal with compression first.

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.

The engine has to be on choke a little or it will idle to low and die

if you're sitting on the bike, on the left side of the bike there is an idle screw. turn it clockwise to raise idle, counterclockwise to lower idle.

Just got a 2003 klx400sr, i am a newbe to this, how can i raise the rider height & also stiffen the rear suspension, i see a yellow spring do i just turn the nut up to raise, & will this also...

Hello the locking nuts on the shock are preload adjustment, turning them to move in the down direction will stiffen the suspension but not actually raise the height of the motorcycle but you will have less sag when you are on the bike by adding more tension.

I have a 2003 kx 85 , It has pro tech suspension , front fork seals are leaking , would stock fork seals fit this protech suspension? How hard would this be to do myself? Ive done lots of other work on...

Stock fork seals will work but if I were you, I woudl take it to someone who has the correct tools take your fork seals out without gouging the fork leg. If your seals are leaking then chances are you're also low in fluid. Your fluid level is what decides how hard or soft your front end is (In addition to fork spring rate).

Smoke alot

sounds like the bike is in need of new piston rings especially if that much oil is blowing on such a newer bike. if the crankcase is not overfilled, then focus on rings especially if the sparkplug is oily too.

Sospension original set up

The best way to set up your suspension is to have someone hold the bike while your on it. Then a thrid person to watch. You with your feet on the pegs jump down on it with out sitting on seat. This thrid person is there to watch to make sure that the bike will rebound or come back to normal, with both the front and rear coming up at the same time. As far as the best set up, it is all a weight thing. Keep it where it is take to woods, if you don't like it adjust it. Keep doing this until you like it. It took me 2 days on my bike just to race one Harescramble.
