I just bought a 1985 Honda xr250 and motor is disassembled and was told and can see that the intake valves hit the piston and bent. Only paid $50 for bike but what parts do I need to purchase to run?


Hi, Devin for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

How to adjust height on rear springs


adjusting the spring tension makes the ride harder and mite hold you up slightly ! is the adjuster on the top of the shock and rotates by hand coz thats the oil reaction responce , or is it below the spring which you need a tool to adjust ? if suspension is nearly full compressed after all these then fit longer shocks ! Dial a ride air shocks are good as you can select the height , not cheep though ! P...

I have a grinding noise coming from what sounds like the left rear side of my 2003 VL1500 but cant see anything that might cause it


  1. Performance
    • Suzuki has introduced slight changes to the Intruder from year to year, such as variations in accessories and styling. The bike's performance, however, has remained steadily the same. The 2004 model has a four-stroke, 1,462 cc engine with a hybrid air and liquid cooling system. The single overhead cam (SOHC) V-Twin motor generates 67 horsepower at 4,800 rpm. It has a 96 mm (3.78 inches) bore, a 101 mm (3.98 inches) stroke and has a compression ration of 8.5:1. The Intruder also has a five-speed transmission.
    Suspension and Brakes
    • An oil-damped, telescopic fork suspension with coil spring comprises the front suspension. A link-type, oil-damped five-way adjustable spring preload makes up the rear suspension. The front brake system uses a dual hydraulic disc, and rear uses a single hydraulic disc.

    Dimensions
    • The motorcycle has an overall length of 99.4 inches, a width of 38 inches, a height of 45.9 inches and a wheelbase of 66.9 inches. The seat sits 27.6 inches off the ground, the bike clears the ground by 5.7 inches and weighs 659 lbs.

The compression ratio is 9.4-to-1. The engine is liquid-cooled. Like most other bikes in its class, the 2004 Suzuki Volusia 800 features a five speed transmission,

Suspension, Brakes and Tires
The 2004 Suzuki Volusia 800 comes with an oil-damped telescopic front suspension, and link-type, oil-damped, seven-way adjustable rear suspension with spring preload. The front and rear brakes are single disc. The bike has a 130/90-16 front tire and a 170/80-15 rear tire.

What can be done to improve the forks so they are not so stiff for fire roading and light off roading.


First, use the owners manual and check the setting of the compression damping. Set the compression damping a bit lighter and try it out. This will make the forks feel less stiff, but the fork springs could still be too stiff for your weight. Make sure the rear air spring has enough air in it too, this can adversely effect handling.

Next step, Work with a reputable off-road suspension shop to set up the bike for your weight and riding abilities. There is not much you can do with the rear air spring/shock, but I found that it worked quite well.

A couple of good suspension tuning shops are Enduro Engineering, Factory Connection. etc. Most of the good shops will require that you remove the forks and send them in for re-spring or re-valve work.

Ask at your local dealer that sells a lot of motorcross type bikes about good suspension shops in your area.

Fork Oil for ETV CAPONORD


front and rear. Panniers were full tankbag was full no topbox riding solo. THE BIKE originally shipped 20 weight oil for the forks. That was much to stiff for me. I talked with them and they suggested trying 15 weight and that 10 would probably be too soft. I tried the 15 weight and it was improved but still pretty harsh especially on small bumps. A friend with lots of experience related that he uses Silkolene 2.5 weight in his sport touring bikes (such as his Honda Hurricane and Ducati ST4). I installed 4 weight (actually aircraft hydraulic fluid, previously known to old Beemer riders as Aeroshell 4). I LOVE IT!! Compression damping is just fine. Rebound damping might be a tiny amount too little, but not enough to matter. Even dive under heavy braking is reasonable....much less than with the stock springs. ,It is difficult to get the right oil viscosity for everyone. Typically I ride 2up with wife, 400# plus gear, plus luggage, easily 440-450# total load. Even under those circunstances I may try W15 next time, but for sure not less. The Dutch WP is working with BMW, supplying the shocks and spring for the new K1200 S /R /PowerCup models. WP engineers (like Hyperpro) have designed a retrofit to the Front Springs for the Capo, as well as a rear shock. BTW, by coincidence those front springs are progressive too. They recommend from 5 to 20, depending on the typical bike loading. I suggest a look into the WP website, good stuff there. Here I am pasting some info from WP: ...the progressively wound Pro-Line front fork springs of WP Suspension play a fundamental role in the operation of your front fork. The springing and damping characteristics of your front fork can be fully optimised if the correct springs are used. Many motorcyclists know the problem of too soft front fork springs which can result in bottoming of the front fork when braking or too much movement and poor handling of the front fork during braking and acceleration. Original front fork springs can also be too hard which causes the front fork to shock the steering and the entire bike to feel uncomfortable on uneven road surfaces. With the WP Pro-Line front fork springs you are taking the first step towards optimum road holding at an attractive price. The springs, progressively wound from high-grade silicon chrome spring steel, ensure that your front fork will respond better (improved comfort), and react more controllable when compressed under braking (more stability, resulting in greater safety). In most cases motorcycle manufacturers use linear wound front fork springs which are often in the beginning but also at the end of the stroke, either to soft or to hard. Progressivity is lacking. With progressively wound WP springs you can solve this problem, once and for all. __________________ ,,,
