  • First, keep it clean. It will run cooler, last longer, look better and be less hassle to service.
  • Keep the chain lubricated.
  • Install a new plug in early summer. NGK,R6918B-8
  • Flush the coolant in early summer. Be alert for any external water leaks and internal water leaks. If the gear oil looks milky you have a leak. Normally this is a water pump seal and easy to fix.
  • If a battery is in use, maintain water level in the battery to keep the plates covered. If you are to use a battery charger, use only a 1amp trickle charger for two hours..
  • Change gearbox oil, (10w40 motor oil) in the spring, mid summer and early fall. Clean the air filter and lube the cables with liquid graphite on the same schedule..
  • Run the engine for five to ten minutes once a week in the winter.
  • Use premium gas and turn the fuel petcock, (gas valve), off when the bike is not in use. Install an in-line fuel filter.
  • In the spring, mid summer and early fall, drain the carburetor. There should be a plug on the bottom of the carb float bowl. Remove the plug then replace it after the fuel drains. This will keep the carb clean and eliminate condensed water in the fuel system.
Do these things and you should get many years out of the bike. Also, go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual 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.

I want to install a rekluse clutch in a 95 rm 125 they don't make a clutch for that basket is there another basket that will work on that bike

If they don't make one for that bike, there is a good reason. Don't modify your bike just to use something that has a good reputation on other bikes. Find a good after market set of clutch plates from a company such as ferodo. It will be easier and at least give you a guarantee that they won't fall apart in 5 minutes in your machine.

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.

How to replace a fuel filter on a 2007 4runner

It's the new age of car design. As building tolerances become greater, engine/drivetrains become more efficient, and lubricants (ie synthetics) improve in wear properties, maintanance has been greatly extended on modern cars. Just follow your maintanance schedules (mostly oil and filters) and you'll be fine.

Want to know what parts i need to replace my lower connecting rod bearing on 99 suzuki rm 125 and the best place to get them

Understand that your bike has a pressed crank. A shop will need to press the crank apart then press it back together and align the crank. I suggest you go to Babbitt's for parts. /parts/viewby brand/parts.aspx

New crank main bearings are highly recommended.

I have a rm 125 engine in a go kart and want to know the age any ideas? it has a double lift povervalve controlled by a camish thing on the waterpump drive, water cooled

Look on the engine case, there should be a number stamped into it. Reply back with the number. It can be used to decode the year on most MX bikes.

Aprilia 125

i planned to buy a motorbike just try the aprillia 125 and i really like it. so i need ur advice about the maintanance and spare parts. as my fren told me the spare parts dammen expensive lorr... 1 set sprockect and chain cost about rm600 is it true??? i dun care about the fuel consumption coz i use to go to work only so it's take about 60km per day only. pls help me... use castrol 2t oil. else, use repsol. you must always high-REV the bike... if not lagi cepat rosak!! many apprilia owner never rev hard enough and their engine got damaged easily. this is because the piston needs to be lube but the valve will only open when you high-REV(to the correct power-band) the bike. 6000rpm and above. You must ride hard on this bike. If you think by riding gentle the bike will last longer, you are wrong. Engine will get over heated very easily cos piston not properly lubed since power-valve never open. it's a nice bike to own,,,
