Hi; It could be A carb or air intake issue, also you power band chip may be bad or your throttle cable may have stretched and is not opening carbs all the way, Check this first before you spend A ton of money like I did years ago. Hope this helps good luck and be safe....

Hello if your motorcycle is blowing a lot of smoke and oil from the exhaust and running poorly,sounds like you have worn crankshaft bearings or the main seal is bad and sucking transmission oil.

wont start, or you can't move the kick starter?
If it kicks easily, do a compression test.

2001 suzuki rm 250-Clutch feels like it is grabbing to much only from a stop?, it's making a weird noise when the clutch is being disengauged and sometimes stalls. checked clutch plates and basket and...


I have the same bike doing the same thing, I think this problem is caused by running regular or synthetic motor oils intended for cars rather than using motorcycle specific 10- 40wt. Motorcycle specific oils have friction properties that support long life of the friction plates in your clutch, regular motor oils can cause your friction plates to heat up and glaze over. I think That's what gives you that grabby all or nothing feel when taking off from a stop.

I want my powerband to come in at a lower rpm. it comes in at 3/4 qt throttle! 96 rm 125


You can experiment with different expansion chambers. The cone shape of the chamber bounces a sonic shock wave back to the exhaust port. The wave forms a pressure "wall" at the port to "seal" the exhaust port so intake gasses don't escape. Change the wall timing and you change the powerband. This is the expensive way and with no guarantees. The bike may already have the best possible chamber.

I suggest you go a different route. Just go up about four teeth on the rear sprocket or down one tooth on the front sprocket. This will mean the bike will have a lower top speed but more torque and earlier powerband relative to mph speed. Bottom line is you will come out of the hole quicker with higher revs and reach the powerband sooner. The loss of top speed is overcome by the speed out of the corners. Generally, more time is spent in first, second and third than the brief moments spent in fifth or sixth.

Please consider a top rating for this solution. Thanks!
