hi, the easiest way is to remove the air box . then remove the throttle cables. undo the throttle position sensor. undo the front carb flange, pull the carb off. it should then come out of the left side of the frame.

Are you CERTAIN the two cams have not been switched? Chances are there will be the letter "E" on the side of the exhaust cam gear and/or an "I" on the intake cam. The diagram below is for a WR250. I don't have a manual for an rmz250. Your cams are probably the same. Note that the caps should tighten to only 7.2 Ft lbs. (10nm / 1.0 m-kg ). Many other things could be wrong. Was the cam assembly removed incorrectly? Doing it incorrectly can damage the cam, cam caps and cylinder head. Is the cam runout out of specifications ( .0012 )? Are you using a standard torque pattern? ( Cris-cross from inside to outside ) for installing. The reverse when dis-assembling. It may be best to let the shop figure out the problem and do the repair on this one.

Its one of those things. If you don't use it, you wish you did. You will notice a little restriction, but if you crash (and we all do) it is a good investment. I would say yes to it if you can afford it.

It takes a little suction for the gas to reach the cylinder from the carb. When it is hot and on, the gas is readily available. So a kick or two, when cold starting is not abnormal. Alternatively, kick twice with the key in off position. Then turn the key on and kick, the engine will start instantly. Idea is the make the gas reach the inlet.

A bent shift fork is the problem.

Hello mate, if you do not have a manual, take the spark plug out and the casing off the flywheel, Find a small stick or screwdriver and place it in the sparkplug hole but do not let go of it, then with the other hand turn the flywheel until the piston reaches the top of the bore, then turn the flywheel left and right, then check the marks, this should tell you which one is TDC.

If you purchased the bike used the previous owner may have modified it for an older carb. I would take the old carb to the shop where you bought the new one and see if they can match it up with a rebuild kit or an identical carb.

2005 Suzuki RM-Z... | Answered on Dec 30, 2009

I am not certain exactly what bike you have so consider the diagram below as generic. Chances are the float needle is sticking open a bit. A bit of trash may be stopping it from closing fully. The overflow hose is where any "excess" gas is dumped. This hose vents to the open air. Be sure to turn off the gas valve (petcock) at the bottom side of the tank when bike is not in use. Please rate my answer. Thanks!
