Play in my rear suspention

When my yz 125 if in its stand and the rear tyre if off of the ground and i lift the swing arm up there is about a inch to an 2 inch before the suspention resists. the spring and actual suspention is fine it isnt loose im wondering if its the bearings or mibby even the suspention needs re-gassed, but ive only ever noticed it lately when i made the suspention harder because it was sitting to low for my weight. what do you thing the problem is? and what could be the worst to happen when im using the bike? i take the bike to a track every couple of weeks and hit jumps ect ? thanks for all your help.Ryan Dundas

Sounds normal to me. There won't be much resistance in the rear unloaded. As long as the ride height is good, and it doesn't sag too much with you on it, it should be fine. If it sags too much, the spring is shot, and you probably need a new shock.

HOW TO EASILY OIL A MOTORCYCLE CHAIN WITH NO MAIN STAND


If there is no main stand on your motorbike it can be a problem sometimes, not only do side stands dig into soft ground & warm tarmac they also make it awkward to oil the drive chain !

A simple way around this is to get either :-
A piece of strong piece of wood about an inch square ( or in diameter) or
A strong hammer or mallet or
A small trolley jack handle or similar preferably with rubber or taped ends

Whatever you use it must be about an inch (or more) longer than from the ground to the right hand end of the rear spindle (axle) or underside of the right hand swinging arm, WHILE THE BIKE LEANS on its side stand: For the very few bikes that have a side stand on the right, read left hand end of rear spindle

All you have to do is raise the rear wheel slightly by pivoting the weight of the bike on its front wheel & side stand

On medium to large bikes this means getting someone else to position themself on the side stand side of the bike, where they should put 1 foot against the side stand & reach over the bike to grab a good purchase point near the rear wheel, grab the nearest handlebar end with the other hand & pivot the bike forwards on its front wheel & side stand
This will lift the rear wheel a few inches so that your prop can be placed upright between the ground & your selected point on the bike

Spin the rear wheel by hand whilst applying non fling chain lubrication to both edges of your bikes chain

SIMPLE
EFFECTIVE
NO NEED TO CARRY A PADDOCK STAND IN YOUR RUCKSACK

What is tyer pressure platina 125 bike


If you look at the sidewalls of the tyres, you should see the recomended pressures.
Often motorcycles have a sticker either on the rear swing arm with the recommended pressures, or behind the side covers either left or right. Some times it is under the seat. I would look at the tyres though.

How do i adjust the chain on my 2004 kawasaki 250f


Simple task, get the bike up on a stand so the back wheel is off the ground. Loosen the rear wheel nut (big 21/22mm nut attached to the spindle that goes through the wheel hub) not too much, just enough that the wheel will move when you adjust the adjusters. Now, on either side of the swing arm you will see a bolt, with a lock nut, running from inside the swing arm, onto the axel block, which the spindle goes through. Adjust these either out or in, depending on whether you need to loosen or tighten the chain. If loosening the chain, you might want to give the rear tyre a kick forwards to move it in (after you have loosened the adjusters inwards). So thats how you do it, simple. The chain should have no more than half an inch movement up and down after adjustment. Lock the adjusters in place using the lock nut, then tighten the big wheel nut up, job done.
