Question about Suzuki DR 650 SE Motorcycles

2 Answers

The seat height on my DR650SE suzuki was reduced by converting the front suspension,rear suspension and side stand following a specified procedure which was done at the dealer. but a wratteling noise in the chain specially when two are on the bike as if it is touching somewhere?? I am in a place where no dealers are available, i dont know what was done exactly for that conversion and need to verify if the procedure was done properly ,but unable to locate such procedure in the maint manual. what about the chain tensioning procedure the manual is specifying that the slack should be 1.2 - 1.8 inchesas measuredin the mid point between the wo sprockets

Hello, the noise u are hearing is a loose chain or a stretched chain, carefully loosen the chain adjuster lock downs and loosen the axle nut so the axle is just slightly under tension, u don't want the wheel to move to easily, carefully go from side to side and adjust the chain evenly using the index marks so u end up with about 1.5 inches of slack measured at the bottom center run of the chain, tighten down the adjusters and spin the wheel and recheck, if u have loose and tight places in the chain then u MUST replace the chain,there will be some difference but that should not be much more than .25" (1/4"), do this check at different sections pf the chain to be sure you get it right, after u are done thoroughly lube the chain with a spray grease that is made just for chains, it is avail at any motorcycle accessory store or dealer.

Hi

The rattling will be either/or both the upper rear sprocket chain guard (black plastic) or the lower rear sprocket chain stay (silver metal). With the bike being lowered it has changed the angle at which the chain is pointing. There should be some adjustment in the lower silver chain stay (the bit that keeps it directly safely and stops it jumping). The black plastic upper guard is not really needed and can be removed.

The lowering procedure would have been to compress the forks a few inches, tighten up the yokes, so effectively you have a lowered front end and less suspension travel. Sometimes they slide the top of the forks out of the upper yokes (next to the speedo) and they stick out a little, maybe an inch or so. The rear suspension would have had a shorter spring installed.

The chain tensioning procedure can be done by tightening or loosening the rear chain tensioners next to the rear sprocket. Measure the slack/deflection of the chain in all gears and work out the average deflection of 1.4/1.5"

I hope all of this information helps and you can carry on riding your bike without any more annoyances.

Thanks

The air suspension compressor assembly will indicate the code when the condition that caused the code is current. In some instances the air suspension compressor assembly may set a flag that requires the ASCM to be reset. The ASCM will reset on its own after the ignition has been turned off for more than 2 1/2 hours or if the air suspension fuse has been removed with the ignition key turned off.

Air Suspension ??????

Air Suspension Description and Operation
Air Suspension
The primary mission of the Air Suspension System is the following for the rear suspension under loaded and unloaded conditions:
• Keep the vehicle visually level
• Provide optimal headlight aiming
• Maintain optimal ride height
The Air Suspension System consists of the following items:
• Air suspension compressor assembly
• Air suspension sensors
• Rear air springs
Important: The Air Suspension System must have a voltage supply of at least 12.6V to operate properly.
The Air Suspension System will maintain the rear D height within 4 mm (0.15 in) in all loading conditions and the leveling function will deactivate if the vehicle is overloaded. The side to side D height variation is maintained within 8 mm (0.31 in). After ignition is turned off, the air suspension control module (ASCM) will remain active for between 30 minutes and 2 1/2 hours. The system will exhaust pressure within 30 minutes after the ignition is turned off to lower the vehicle after unloading. In a temperature-controlled environment, the leakage of the complete load leveling system will not result in more than 1.4 mm (0.05 in) drop of rear suspension height at GVWR during a 24 hour period. If the outdoor temperature drops from +20°C (+68°F) to -5°C (+23°F), the rear D height may drop as much as 25 mm (1 in). However, the Air Suspension System should return to the specified D height when the ignition is again cycled to ON.

What is the problem ?

Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Displaying
The Air Suspension system has an internal clock to prevent overheating if the compressor assembly is running for a prolonged period of time. If the system overheats, all leveling function stops until the system cools down. During this time, the indicator LED on the air inflator switch will be quickly flashing at a constant rate.
The other three diagnostic trouble codes are displayed with a blink code on the inflator switch LED. The Air Suspension Compressor Assembly shall begin to indicate the code when the condition to cause the code becomes current.
The number of the fault code shall be represented by the number of flashing pulses on the inflator switch LED. The flashing pulses shall have a repetition rate of 0.5 seconds and each code shall be separated by a 3.0 second delay. All codes shall be flashed in the order of occurrence of the fault. The blink code shall take priority over other processes that have access to the inflator switch LED. Refer to the following:
• DTC 001
• DTC 002
• DTC 003

I want to know how to fix the alignment on my 1995 honda accord ex.


Before making wheel alignment adjustment, perform the following checks:
  1. Tires should be equal in size and runout must not be excessive. Tires and wheels should be in balance, and inflated to manufacturer's specifications.

  2. Wheel bearings must be properly adjusted. Steering linkage and suspension must not have excessive looseness. Check for wear in tie rod ends and ball joints.
  3. Steering gear box must not have excessive play. Check and adjust to manufacturer's specifications.
  4. Vehicle must be at curb height with full fuel load and spare tire in vehicle. No extra load should be on vehicle.
  5. Vehicle must be level with floor and with suspension settled. Jounce front and rear of vehicle several times and allow it to settle to normal curb height.
  6. If steering wheel is not centered with front wheels in straight-ahead position, correct by shortening one tie rod adjusting sleeve and lengthening opposite sleeve equal amounts.
  7. Ensure wheel lug nuts are tightened to torque specifications
Ride Height Adjustment

Before adjusting alignment, check riding height. Riding height must be checked with vehicle on level floor and tires properly inflated. Passenger and luggage compartments must be unloaded. Bounce vehicle several times, and allow suspension to settle. Visually inspect vehicle from front to rear and from side to side for signs of abnormal height.
Measure riding height. See figure. Riding height between left and right sides of vehicle should vary less than 1′ (25.4 mm). If riding height is not within specification, check suspension components and repair or replace them as necessary.
Wheel Alignment Procedures

Honda recommends using commercially available computerized 4-wheel alignment equipment. Follow equipment manufacturer instructions to obtain vehicle alignment settings. Use following procedures for necessary adjustments.
Civic Camber Adjustment
Compare camber settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If camber is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck camber.
Civic Caster Adjustment
DO NOT use more than 2 shims. If more than 2 shims are required to adjust caster angle, check for bent or damaged suspension components.
Compare caster settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If caster is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck caster.
Civic Toe-In Adjustment

  1. Secure steering wheel in straight-ahead position. Measure front wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, loosen tie rod lock nuts. Turn both tie rods equally in the same direction until front wheels are in straight-ahead position and toe-in reading is correct. Tighten tie rod lock nuts. Reposition tie rod boots if twisted.
  2. Ensure parking brake is released. Check rear wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, hold adjusting bolt on rear compensator arm and loosen lock nut. See figure. Adjust rear toe-in by sliding rear control arm until rear toe-in is correct. Install NEW lock nut, and tighten it while holding adjusting bolt.
Wheel Alignment Specifications

  • Camber - Measurement in degrees.
    • Front: 0 (range -1 to 1)
    • Rear: 0.33 (range -1.33 to 0.67)
  • Caster - Measurement in degrees.

How can i lower the height of the bike i am on my tip toes


Only two ways you can acheive this. the first is to have your rear suspension modified, or lowered by about an inch should do it. This job would most likely have to be done at a mechanics shop. But is possible.
The second solution, involves lowering your seat height, by cutting about an inch or so of foam off the top of the seat. This job is also best done by an upholsterer, but is a possible aternative to lowering the suspension, get your seat chopped down.
