Sv650s stolen ignition busted how do i wire in a toggle switch and resister

well, the important question is, are you gonna use it for racing? if not, just buy a replacement barrel and key or if you prefer having one key for everything a whole lockset. Suzuki will charge for all 4 of your limbs and maybe your **** for that, so Ebay will be your friend. or if your not to bothered about OEM parts then check out or for pattern part ignition barrels ready to plug in. the racing route is easy enough, but if its insured most insurers wont pay out in a claim as theres no steering lock and the fact anyone can jump on and start it.

Looking for Scott Tucker's Racing Career history?

Scott Tuckers racing really got going in the 2006. Tucker ran his 1st full season racing a Ferrari inside the Ferrari Challenge Series. The best finish he accomplished was at Portland Worldwide Speedway where he finished fifth. He also claimed his very first triumph in the third Sports Car Club of America race where he ran at Texas Motor Speedway.

Tucker continued with the Ferrari Challenge Series by running an additional complete year driving behind the wheel of his Ferrari. Scott Tucker Racing then claimed his very first triumph of 2007 at the Ferrari Challenge Series at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California. He also competed in 8 IMSA races and three SCAA races. Additionally, he entered a partial season as a co-driver alongside Ed Zabinski driving a Porsche.

Scott Tucker Racing took on a new challenge in 2008 by making the transition to become an owner-driver. Tucker started Level 5 Motorsports and won almost 50 percent of all the Ferrari Challenge Series races he competed in. Scott Tucker finished second in the general standings of the competition, this was just after being successful in all of the American world series Finals in Mugello. Tucker also raced four occasions in the SCAA in 2008.

Also in 2008, Tucker competed in the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Unfortunately, he ran into engine problems just after twenty hours and only finished 28th in his class.

Scott Tucker Racing genuinely took off in 2009. He managed to achieve ten race victories in the Ferrari Challenge Series in one season, this was the most in the sports' history. He also partnered Christophe Bouchet in the Rolex series and acquired a best finish of third at Watkins Glen Worldwide. Scott Tucker Racing also acquired the Dealer's Championship.

Tucker entered the Le Mans Prototype series for the very first time in 2010. Alongside two teammates he won at Sebring International Raceway, Miller Sports activities Park, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, along with the Mid-Ohio Sports activities Car Course.

Scott Tucker was also named the American Le Mans Series rookie of the year due to his performances throughout the season.

Scott Tucker along with Richard Westbrook, Sascha Maassen, and Lucas Luhr finished third overall in the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The race was so memorable and inspiring that it later grew to become an award successful documentary.

Even though Scott Tucker Racing and Level 5 Motorsports geared their major focus on the Le Mans Series in 2011, they still did earn several victories in the SCCA Nationwide Series and gained their third championship win. Tucker continued to compete inside the Ferrari Challenge series and also acquired a win in the opening race of the Grand-Am SCCA Series.

Scott Tucker Racing then moved into the LMP2 class in the Le Mans series. They also competed with two extra Lola-Honda prototypes. The group was victorious winning at the Twelve Hours of Sebring circuit. The team also acquired a podium finish in the 24 hours of Le Mans.

What is subsequent future for Scott Tucker Racing?
Scott Tucker Racing is sure to be become even more dominant when the documentary finishes due to the attention it will bring to the inspirational driver. Level 5 Motorsports has shown great growth already for a number of years and will carry on to do so.

My honda cr 125 motcross keeps going through spark plugs,using correct fuel,runs well for an hour or so.

Hello assuming there were no carburetor jet changes and your bike is running to rich. or you have realy dirty air cleaner.
Fouling plugs due to to much oil could be the wetside oil seal needs replace because it is letting your trans oil enter the crancase or you have worn crankshaft roller bearings.

CRF450R '07 model has cracked the left crankcase from the clutch pivot arm all the way across the top of the main bearing. Is this a common problem? Honda had 3 left cases in stock!! The bike is used for...

if you are pushing to much power it is common to break something inturnal that would in return slap the crankcase. and if the case is hit pretty hard it will crack.

What tool is needed to remove the transmission pilot bearing

Professional way? Pilot Bearing Puller. Here is an example,

Not relevant to your situation due to availability, or budget? Then it's time to use your ingenuity.

Non-professional ways:

1.Makeshift a slide hammer puller. A rod of metal with a hooked end, or similar. Attach a large pair of Vise Grips to the end of the rod, place the hooked end inside the inner bearing race. (The hole where the transmission input shaft goes)

Take a hammer and tap on the Vise Grips, so that the rod is pulling away from the bearing. (Towards the back of the vehicle)
Work on one side of the inner race, move over a little, and work on that spot. Keep moving around until you pull the bearing out.
Yes, very 'Shade Tree' but will work in a pinch. (Hard on Vise Grips though!)

2.Use a small flat cold chisel. Hit the inner race of the bearing, knocking it out. Remove the inner race, and all bearings. Take the chisel again, and carefully cut a groove along the outer race, staying Away from the crankshaft bore.

Once, the groove is all the way across the outer race of the bearing, and is deep enough, you can work the outer race out of the crankshaft bore.
If you scar the crankshaft bearing bore, file just the scar smooth, and follow up with Emery cloth.

AGAIN, the above No1, and No.2 examples are Non-professional, use at your own risk. I just thought I would post these methods, as not everyone has $26 to $35, for a tool you may use just one time.

Racing idle

This is an air problem. You have an air leak(s) between the carb(s) and the cylinder. This leans the fuel mix and causes the racing problem. Rubber / plastic seals, "o" rings and manifold ducts get old and cracked and just don't seal well at the clamps any more.
