"With everyday use, the screws, nuts and bolts that hold the highest stress areas together tend to loosen up. Consequently, they need to be tightened regularly to ensure that a strap doesn't fall off and get lost. However, not every Mountain Resort provides tool stations, so it's important to have a Snowboard Tool within reach (preferably in your pocket) at all times. Remember, a snowboard tool is a small investment that will definitely pay off over years of riding. Also, with the standardized insert pattern of snowboards, and with the built-in adjustment capacity in most Bindings, Mounting and Adjusting Bindings has become simple quite a simple task. To be able to do this, make sure you have a screwdriver and a wrench or two. Also, it would be a plus if you have some basic knowledge about the stance width, stance location and stance angle. The distance between your front and rear foot is the Stance Width. The basic stance width is roughly the length of your shoulder-width apart (about 30 per cent of your height). The location of the center point between your Bindings relative to the center of the snowboard is the Stance Location. Conversely, the angle of the Bindings across the snowboard's longitudinal axis, wherein zero degrees represents a line that is perpendicular to the snowboard's length, is the Stance Angle. * Forward Lean For starters, check your board's Forward Lean. The forward lean is the amount of forward angle on the highback support. For more leverage and more responsive heelside turning, add more forward lean. By adding forward lean, you also force your knees to bend, consequently ensuring a good riding stance. Still, too much forward lean makes your knee bend too much. Over bending your knees put pressure on your quadriceps muscles and reduces your ability to turn easily. So don't overdo it. You can usually adjust the forward lean in soft-boot Bindings by changing the position of a plastic stay behind the highback. * Rotating the Highbacks You can easily rotate your Bindings' Highbacks if your bindings have slots on the hinges where the highbacks are fastened to the binding's baseplate. To make your heelside turning more responsive than when it is angled along with the baseplate, adjust your Bindings in parallel with the Snowboard's Heel Side Edge. You can do this by loosening the bolts and rotating the highbacks. * Adjusting Strap Position Generally, this involves unscrewing the straps from the baseplate and moving them forward or backward on the Bindings. To improve control, move the straps higher up on the foot. Conversely, move them down lower to increase flexibility. Make sure that the toe strap is resting around the base of your toes and is securely holding down the tip of the boot. Shorten your straps if you find yourself pulling on them for a snug fit. You can do this by fastening the straps to the baseplate further along the length of the strap. Most straps already have extra holes for this adjustment."

Binding adjustment


There is (should be) a screw visible on each of the toe and heel pieces when looking down from directly above. That screw will adjust the height of the piece that clamps down on the top of the tabs on the heel and toe of your ski boots. For proper height measurement, use a credit card (or similar thickness card) and make sure you can somewhat freely slide the card side-to-side under your boot when it is in the binding and clamped down as when you are skiing. Too much play, and you will feel a sloppyness while skiing. Too little and you risk the binding not releasing properly caused by stiction. You can find demonstrations on YouTube also.

Hey guys i have a fzr 250 its a 3ln year 1994 i


If your clutch is automatic, then you need to ajust the freeplay.
On your clutch cover you have the small bolt with a screwdriver head, and a locknut.
You loosen the locknut, and then turn the adjuster bolt with a screwdriver clockwise until you feel it stop, now back it of 1/8th of a turn(counterclockwise).
While holding that adjuster bolt in position, tighten the locknut and your freeplay is adjusted.
You should notice a nice smooth shift while riding.

If your clutch is manual, then adjust your clutch cable length at the handlebar.
If the hand lever feels tight after you adjust the cable, thats because you have new clutches & springs. New ones are stiff at first.

If your clutch adjustment is fine from the start, then you have transmission problems and that would have to be inspected to be able to correctly diagnois which part is bad.

It could be just a broke shift arm.

Rear brake replacement


hi to get the pads in you did screw the calipers pistons all the way back and you should have backed the hand brake cable off as well then adjusted the cable afterwards problem with self adjusting calipers is you can adjust the handbrake cable and the brakes are ok until driven then they can bind so try backing the adjustment off on the handbrake [should really change both calipers as a pair to keep the axles brake balance but this is not anything to do with the brakes binding] best of luck paul
