Hi, with a cold engine, do the following.
Turn off ignition, fuel and remove seat and tank. Undo the central magneto inspection window and 17mm timing mark bolt on the LHS engine cover. Take out a sparkplug. Remove both valve rocker covers.
Turn motor counter-clockwise (using a socket on the nut at the end of the magneto spline) until the timing mark (T) lines up with the centre of the inspection bolt hole. Check all four rocker arms have a slight amount of free play, if not, rotate engine a further 360o. When all four valve rockers have some play, the piston is at top dead centre of compression stroke when all valves are closed. Your now ready to set the gaps.
Loosen lock nut with a ring spanner and adjust gap with a screwdriver, place feeler gauge under tappet between valve stem. Tighten down screw till moderate pressure is felt when sliding the feeler guage. Tighten lock nut ensuring screw does not tighten with it. Do all four valves and crank motor over a couple of revs by hand and check gaps again.
Gaps are as follows:
Inlet 0.08mm - 0.13mm
Exh. 0.17mm - 0.22mm
Goodluck, cheers!

1996 suzuki intruder 1400 hard to start and keep running with new spark plugs


Hi, Chad and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition.
3. Battery nearly discharged, should have 12.5 volts.
4. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Throttle controls not adjusted correctly.
6. Water or dirt in the fuel system.
7. Water or dirt in the carburetor.*
8. Intake air leak.
9. Fuel tank vent hose and vapor valve plugged, or fuel line closed off, restricting fuel flow.*
10. Enricher valve inoperative.*
11. Engine lubricant to heavy (winter operation).
12. Ignition is not functioning properly (possible sensor failure).
13. Faulty ignition coil.
14. Valves sticking.
* Carbureted models.

CAMSHAFT FIT


I got lost with translation on the ebay link, but I would say no to the camshaft. The image on the site you linked was of the some sprockets only, again no. The two models have different camshaft journal cup placement. I own the '90RS model (recent total engine rebuild, so have workshop manual) and looking at diagrams (site link below) of the top end of the 2000, they have different camshaft sprocket connecting faces. The site below has exploded views of all parts of the motorcycle, 95% of DR650 models are there. Cheers.

Hi, i have a 1994 suzuki dr650 rse,it has noise on starting


Sounds like the starter motor clutch is worn or damaged and should be replaced.
Go to the link below and scroll down and click on STARTER CLUTCH. An exploded view diagram and part list is given. All sections of the bike are covered. The starter clutch is not a serviceable item and is replaced when faulty.
Your Yamaha dealer should freely verify the noise if your on good terms with them.
Cheers!

How do you inspect valve clearence and adjust the valves???


you use a set of feeler guages to measure the gap between the valve and the tappet (the arm that opens the valve) there is a intake and exhaust gap setting. you'll have to do some research to find out what the gap should be for your motor.

1995 Suzuki DR650 running rough


Ignition timing is preset and only very badly worn camchain or valve-train issue would have an effect.

You may have a problem with the floatbowl height.
It is an incremental fix, in that you set it and see how it responds.

The fuel availability is governed by the height of the float levels. This can be adjusted by bending the small brass tab on the float spindle. Try adding more fuel first, or bend tab upwards very slightly. you don't have to remove the carby every time, just loosen the front and back manifold clamps and rotate carby so you can acces float chamber screws. The float pin can be pulled out and tab reset. Don't forget to turn fuel off and have a spill tray ready when undoing floatbowl drainplug each time.
Site below has exploded view of the carby with part names, links to all sections of the bike.
Clean all the jets with a carburetor solvent and check fuel line for perishing. Are inlet manifolds in good condition and not have a chalky feel on the insides, they should be shiny and feel slippery for efficient results.

Goodluck, cheers!
