Question about Suzuki RM 125 Motorcycles
I have a rm 125 and i just put rings on it and when i ride it it putts real bad with no power and the spark plug gets fouled out (soaked with i think oil, did compression test and everything ok) and it wont start and it wont have a spark, but if i change the plug i can kick it once, ride it for a little bit, but then it shuts off again need help dont know what else to do? what is the problem
It is likely your jetting. If your plug is wet it's either way too rich or you are not running the engine hard enough to keep it cleaned out. The smaller 2-strokes don't like to be ridden calmly unless the jetting is spot on and even then they can load up. They were designed to be ridden hard.
This is a fairly easy thing to repair, but it's a bit complicated to learn.
I would suggest popping over to allthingsmoto (dot) com and poking around a little - tons of threads on the site about jetting and how to do it. You'll see me over there.
