    1989 suzuki rm125 powervalve installation

    maybe I should be asking ,does a powervalve not correctly timed /spring tension off prevent a bike from starting? thank again
  5. I just rebuilt the topend on a 89 rm125l , i received the cylinder from la sleeve ,they had to resleeve it ,when i received the cylinder the powervalve had to be reassembled and installed .i went to fire the bike up but im not sure how much tension to apply to the powervalve adjuster,the engine has compression but i think compression leaking through the powwrvalve and not allowing the engine to start,i know i assembled the top end correctly . Any advise thank you.
  6. developed lower end engine noise and was wondering if anyone knows about any 2stroke 250 engine swaps ,let me know , Im tired of 4 strokes!

    2005 cr85

    i have a question regarding my sons 05 cr85, i was replacing the topend and during my dissassembly i removed a 10 mm bolt that had a crush washer on it the bolt was located just right of the waterpump assembly ,i actually removed it thinking coolant was going to drain but nothing came out ,i drained the coolant from the lowest bolt on the waterpump . i reassembled the topend and replaced the coolant still nothing came . i started the bike and had my son see if anything came out ,but red gearsaver oozed out of that hole . im sure hoping that normal because the bike runs and sounds good when i start it , thanks guys for your help ,
  9. my son weighs 90 lbs with gear and im looking for a rear spring 4.5 kg for a honda cr 85 or even a 4.6 . thanks mikey v 47v

    need 1988 kdx200 cylinder

    thank you for your feedback . Im going to look into which years are interchangable someone on e-bay said the 1986 cylinder should work.
  11. i bought a bike that i thought just needed a piston and ring and the cylinder bored, i bought an oversized piston and took the cylinder to the machine shop and he said its aluminum he cant bore it out it has to be sleeved, so hopefully someone has a good cylinder laying around they would like to part with if so email me at kaliforniachp@yahoo.com
