    if there was a dealer within a reasonable distance I would do that, but since I am out in the rural area, with no close dealer or anyone with any knowledge, that is why I am asking, all parts I have to order will be on line and shipped. I don't happen to see any place that an oil filter is on this bike. help help help

As far as maintaining your bike, the best thing you can do for yourself is to ride over to the dealer to pick up an oil filter, oil (10w40 motor oil), a new spark plug and a can of chain lube then ask them to give you some instructions in owner maintenance for your bike. They will be happy to show you what you can do and HOW to do it. This includes adjusting the chain. Don't be bashful. Ask questions; "How often is that needed? What do I look for? What tells me I need to bring it in? Can I get those parts here?" Build a relationship with your dealer. You will both benefit more that way than if I just tell you how to do the adjustments.

    Sorry, I had no idea you were in a rural area.



    > The oil filter is on the right side of the bike underneath the small cover plate on the side casing. You will have the cover plate, a large 'O' ring seal, a coil spring, the filter and then a small 'O' ring seal.



    > The spark plug is on the top of the cylinder head just left of center. The large black spark plug wire will need to be removed to get access to the plug for removal. The stock plug is NGK brand, DPR8EA-9



    > There are no grease fittings, (Zerk fittings ), on the bike.



    If you don't have a 3/8" impact driver I STRONGLY suggest that you get one. A simple tool, it will loosen or tighten any screw or bolt on the bike without messing up the head. Go to the site below and you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. Yes, I know the address says Yamaha. You will select the brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.

    You can get a repair manual at the following site > http://search.store.yahoo.net/cgi-bin/ns... Input " Suzuki Savage LS 650 ". The manual will really help you to maintain your bike and will pay for itself the first time you use it.



    I am sure this answers your three questions and then some.

    Please re-rate the solution I have given. Thanks! :)

Hi my suzuki gz 125 wont idle correctly and when i rev the engine it just dies down and cuts out i cant even achieve a stable idle speed


I had this problem today with my bike and after much ado I discovered there was oil in the air filter box... check your oil level it could be too full. Mines was and the excess oil was blown into the air filter box and as a result contaminated the air filter. Spent today cleaning the filter box, carb and draining and changing oil, could not get a new air filter today so ran it without onebike runs like new!! New air filter will be here Monday!

2005 Honda CR 85 R keeps fouling spark plugs


Hi, William and the usual suspects are:
1. The first thing to do if your spark plug has been fouled is to check the air filter. If it's really dirty, that makes it difficult for air to get through to the engine, causing a rich condition. Either clean it thoroughly with some Air Filter Cleaner or buy a new filter. Before you put it back in the air-box, treat with some air filter oil or spray. "WARNING" adding too much oil can also clog up the filter, resulting in another fouled plug.
2. While the gas/oil ratio doesn't equate to what the jetting is, you can still foul plugs, or worse, if the mixture is wrong. Depending on your bike, it's best to look at your owner's manual for the correct ratio. For most 2-stroke motocross bikes, a ratio is 32:1 or 40:1, the gas being 32 or 40, and oil being 1. For those that don't it, it means that for every 128 ounces (one gallon) of gas, you add 4 ounces of 2-stroke oil for a 32:1 ration, or just over 3 ounces for a 40:1 ratio.
If you have too much oil in the mixture (such as 12:1), then you will probably end up fouling the plug because it is more difficult to burn that much oil. Don't try to cut corners with the oil though, because it's very important for your dirt bike's engine. 2-stokes need the oil for lubrication on the cylinder walls, so if you don't have enough (or any for that matter) then the cylinder walls will run dry, causing it to overheat and seize the engine very quickly. So it's very important that you put in the right mixture pre-mix to your 2-stroke gas tank.
Also, 2-strokes have reeds that air and fuel go through into the cylinder, so if they are cracked or broken the bike will not run right. This could cause the plug to foul, so before you go out and buy anything expensive, make sure the reeds are still good.
3. While this usually isn't the main problem, it could be that your spark plug isn't burning hot enough. Having a hotter spark will ignite the fuel stronger, leaving less residual gas/oil in the cylinder that could cause the plug to foul. This "ISN'T" the best choice, but I'd say it's safe to go one plug hotter than stock. Keep an eye on the plug color you're looking for a light tan color anything whiter and you could burn a hole in your piston. Spark plug manufacturers aren't always the same, so make sure you find out how they rate them.
4. Almost every motocross bike comes rich from the factory (especially Honda 2-Strokes when they were being made). It's usually a pretty simple fix, but many riders are too lazy and would rather continue buying plugs instead of spending a few bucks on jets.
5. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
6. Faulty ignition coil low output.

How often do u change oil and spark plugh


Good rule of thumb, about every 3,000 miles for oil. Every third oil change for the spark plug. Air filter and Fuel filter usually goes with. Remember though your ridding habbits have a lot to do with maintanace though. If you ride your bike hard, and like the canyons. Then shrink the intervals by 1,000 miles or every once a month for oil. The spark plugs, and filters are every other oil change.

Tune-up of xjr400r?


You can do it..... Look up in the Owners manual what you need to do on certain km/miles since last tune-up. Normally, would be adjust plugs gap, clean air filter, change oil+filter, oiling certain moving paart including chain greasing. Btw, go to Google and download a Owner/Repair manual for the bike.

What kind of maintience need to be done on a 2003 Z71 fwd ?


Change the filter with each oil change. Unless your towing, the tranny filter is usually 60k miles. Check your manual to be sure. Your manual should spell out when maintenance is to be done. If a garage wants you to do some outrageous expensive maintenance, have another garage look at it.
