Question about Suzuki RM 125 Motorcycles
Make sure your calipers are free to pivot on the mounting bolt, and the pads move freely on their mounting pins.
check the spacing of the fork tube in relation to the rotor on that side. You can adjust that by loosening the axle pinch bolt on the tube, and the fork can be moved in or out as needed to align the rotor in the grove on the tube where the caliper sits. Take the caliper off, and then see how freely it spins.
Be sure when putting wheel on that you tighten the axle nut first and the pinch bolts on the head of the axle last and for best handling you should have the fork brace loose and the tripple tree clamps loose at this time and tighten all from the bottom up.
If your clutch is not set up properly, it will cause damage to the running parts of your motorcycle.
Take the motorcycle for a test drive. Use this time to determine if the clutch needs to "grab" more or less. For example, if you pull in the clutch lever and it is difficult to shift, it grabs too much. On the other hand, if when you let the clutch lever out the motorcycle is low on power, it is not grabbing enough.
Loosen the clutch cable if the clutch needs to "grab" more, via the clutch cable adjuster bolts near the crankcase, until there is a small amount of play in the cable. You should be able to move the clutch lever just slightly with no change in the clutch's actuation.
Tighten the clutch cable if you need the clutch to "grab" less. Tighten the cable until there is only a small amount of play left in the cable. Pulling the lever from now on will make a much larger difference in clutch actuation.
