    Cam Chain sawing into head

    sounds like ur chain stretched,same thing happened to me on my 610,youll have to get a new chain(dont just cut a few links out because it might stretch again to much and snap,then youll have some real problems!) and definitly a new cam sprocket,if it doesnt look worn(sharp or curved) check the the sprocket it leads to on the bottom end.
  2. make sure all the water is out of the airbox,dry off the filter and everything,make sure no water is in the intake,then check all the vent tubes leading from the airbox and reroute them if there too low.it shoulld be good after that if the problem consists then its probly a gasket leak,or seal,on my 610 the water pump pipe came out and made the coolant leak through the barrel and it turned my oil to a white milky color,so make sure its not antifreeze..and what happened to the engine after you rode threw? and if this happenes again and you no you got water in your engine,try pulling the plug and kick her and water should shot out.

    Suzuki ltf250 wont start,help!!

    i recently purchased at 1990 ltf 250 and was told it only needed was a spring on the kick start gear so tht kickstart would come back up after you kick it down,well i got one of those and assembled it and i went to start but wouldnt start i tried a new spark plug completly cleaned out the carb but nothing,it has compression and spark and sound right when i kick but nothing,so after i put the new plug in and kicked it afew times i took the plug out to see if it was chared at all or wet but it looked as if it was not put in yet so that means no gas was getting to the cyclinder, i took the carb off and gave gas and isnt a small stream of gas supposed to shot out? well nothing came out so i took the jets off and cleaned them good but nothing still, no gas will shot out of the carb into cyclinder althoe there is gas getting into the bowl,any body have any suggestions on what to do???

    tc 610 radiator cap

    hi i have 1999 tc 610 and got a new radiator cap(1.2)because i lost the old one and about a week or two after i got it antifreeze started leaking threw the spark plug hole in the cylinder making it bog out or die but i would have to ride it on a straight away for about a half mile then it will run fine after that,i changed the head gasket but nothing,do you think it could be the wrong size radiator cap,i have a 1.2 maybe too much pressure?

    hard starting hot te410

    to get it to tdc take of the ignition cover and pop out the spark plug and stick a drinking straw down the spark plug hole and rotate the flywheel,which is the round thing when you take the ignition cover off,get a wrench to fit it and rotate it untill the straw goes all the way up before it falls down,now remember to make sure its on the compression stroke when you do this,im not 100 %sure on how to make sure it is on that stroke but its a 50,50 chance you will get it,maybe somebody elese can assist you on that.

    250 or 450?

    go for the 450,thats would id do if i were you.the frames and handling should be pretty much the same although id imagin the 250 would be easier to throw around but the power of the 450 is very controllable but more powerful and faster then the 250 and and 450 also has great handling,comfortable, and easy to ride and wont get you tired fast.
