SOURCE: Installing an exhaust

but I was curious if I need some sort of rubber seal or a sealing compound for it. Thanks a lot!No you dont absolutly need it but it would be smart to have because I had the same thing happen on my yz125 and the carbon went everywhere and staind my swingarm. I just used a piece of old radiator tube because it was cheap and I didn't have to order it.,

SOURCE: exssive oil from tail pipe yz 125

Hi, when you change your pipe to the FMF you reduced the back pressure and gave it more flow. That causes it to run a little "rich". Look at your spark plug and check the color of it, it should be a nice tan color. If its a dark brown then you need to "lean" out your bike. The easiest way to do that is by taking the slide out of the carb and taking out the main jet, the lock washer is set to the middle position for a stock set-up. Move it down 2 notches and then run it and see what your plug looks like. The black "goo" is the unburned oil from not running lean enough. Another trick to try is run a NGK-EV plug. it burns hotter so it will help with the oil problem (and make it a little more snappy also). And as an added bonus it will be easier to start.

88 suzuki samurai I have has a weber carb with water choke. I notice that the hose from carb has a bulge in it. I dont know the diameter of the hose coming off the carb to purchace another one? Also, i...

custom carb .
who knows what you have, even diff, engine.
remove hose, measure it. if not up to measuring, take it to any shop
and they will tell you, what I.D it is. (most hoses are marked)
the jerking can be many things.
seems to me its the DASH pot effect.
on custom carbs there is no dash pot, so when you drop the hammer (throttle ) you get 100% closes throttle and next snapping
the orig, carb had a dash pot, now missing.
one trick is to run high idle speeds, or back off throttle slower driving.
or add a dashpot.
it simple delays throttle snap back.
sure the timing changes rpm that is why.
when tuning any carb, you set timing first , then tune carb to that.
stock timing and stock advance if motor is still stock,
you dizzy has stock advancing weights and springs, i test those first.

Rm85 not runnin right

Hi depending on the condition of the engine components such as seals crank bearings head gasket etc. Start with cheacking the carb for water/dirt in the carb of stale fuel if the motorcycle has been sitting for some time because old gas will clog the slow speed circuit in the carb.

I have a 1991 rm 80 suzuki it wont kick start u have to push start it and it bogs out. if someone knows the problem can u please tell me!!!!!!

Stick in a new spark plug then remove the float bowl on the carb and clean the carb. Chances are the main jet is plugged up with a bit of trash. Below is a diagram of your carb. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_240.gif

No because the RM125 body is way bigger than a DRZ125. A DRZ125 is about the size of an RM85.
