20 Most Recent 2005 Suzuki RM-Z 450 Questions & Answers

If the timing is right and you have spark, then it could only be a fuel issue. Does it have enough fuel getting to it? Have you checked the needle and seat in the carbs for wear or debris. Try undoing the fuel bowl drain plug and let some fuel out, if nothing comes out, try turning your fuel on. If on, and it is a vacuum tap. Check that you are getting good vacuum for the fuel to come out. If it is a gravity feed, take the hose off the carb and turn tap on to see if enough fuel is running out.

My friend, you havn't checked the oil (you say you don't know how) and you are talking about a rebuild?!?

Whoa! Slow down a little bit. Back up the horse. The very first thing you do - before you do anything else - is check the fluids! NO EXCEPTIIONS. Should be checked before EVERY RIDE. Your life depends on this! Anything you can't find or don't understand, you ask the seller - standing right there with YOUR money in his or her hand.

Find and read the owners manual - find the tool kit - find and check the battery. Look at the tires, wear, alignment, pressure. Check all electrical items, lights, horn, starter etc. DO NOT move this motorcycle until you know how to check the fluids and find them to be proper.

Your motorcycle is potentially 14 years old. To protect your investment, take your RM-Z 450 to the Suzuki dealer in your town and get it put into proper condition. After you do these things - NOW is the time to show it off to your friend.

Check the valve clearances first.Check the spark plug to be tightened to the specific torque.If still no compression, you need to disassemble the engine and check the valve seat's, cylinder head's gasket and the piston rings to be everything within specifications limits.

The kick starter has a gear that should be intertwined with the back of the clutch basket .If its got bit misaligned then it will not let the gear to turn over.------- but if that gear or fitting is not the problem then other possibility is clutch basket bolt.---------The clutch basket bolts are not tight enough, they are getting bit loose inside the gearbox.Reinspect this bolts.------ Also check the washers, clutch plates and inspect that clutch plates are not dried out .--------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
