Old Suzuki motorcycle parts problem

Having fifteen year old Suzuki? Well it’s time to do something about it. We’ll present the specific problem and mind map resolving, maybe you’ll find something useful for your old Suzuki motorcycle.

Having really old suzuki motorcycle parts? Our particular problem is associated with clutch issue. Before coming up of the problem there were new motorcycle parts installation such as: starter clutch and new clutch plates.

The motorcycle clutch issue appeared after 30 miles on the road. The owner of the bike is pointing out the master cylinder as motorcycle part that need the attention. In the clutch system, the motorcycle part which the master cylinder operates is called the slave cylinder; this motorcycle parts moves the throw out bearing until the high-friction material on the transmission's clutch disengages from the engine's metal (or ceramic/carbon) flywheel.

First thing you need to check is the hoses at the master cylinder. You might need brand new hoses because of the high ultra violet rays exposure.

Second, new air in the system means there is a leak with your motorcycle parts. It could be one or all of the following motorcycle parts: master cylinder seals, the slave cylinder seals, the lines or connections. Careful inspection checking for leaks after a thorough cleaning will give you the best chance of tracking this down. If no visible clues can be found, the next step may be a careful rebuild of the master and slave cylinders followed by a new hydraulic line.

Third, If there is crystallized fluid in the master cylinder- there might be crystals clogging the line. Therefore you could disconnect the line at the master and slave cylinder and try compressed air to clean the line or carburetor cleaner followed by air. Keep in mind if you blow air in the lines point the end of the hose in a direction where there is nothing but moonscape.

Next blog post will be more about Master Cylinder.

 

Older Motorcycle parts issue explained as “Tap Loudly”

by Goldie 5. December 2010 06:23

 

This issue is common at older motorcycles or motorcycles with old motorcycle parts and fresh motorcyclists notice that their motorcycles begin to tap loudly while losing almost half of its power. Inexperienced motorcyclists often explain this motorcycle issue as “Tap Loudly”.

What “Tap Loudly” means to mature motorcyclists?

Let’s see, “Tap Loudly” could mean a number of motorcycle parts issues:

 

  • A blown exhaust pipe gasket at the head makes a loud and sharp noise.
  • Drain the oil and inspect for metal shavings or worse. This indicates an internal part failure.
  • A valve adjuster screw that has loosened up and backed off can make a lot of noise in the top end. First thing to do is to check the valve clearances all around each cylinders compression stroke.
  • If you changed the exhaust system and didn’t change the carburetor jetting to match, the engine may have gone too lean and seized piston/rings.

Start with a compression check on both sides. Look at the spark plugs for signs of ingestion of foreign objects. The carburetor choke plates have been known to come loose and get sucked into the intake system, causing damage.

Common issues with Suzuki motorcycle parts

by Goldie 17. November 2010 01:55

 

Every motorcycle brand has its own uniqueness. Today we will talk about common problems that happened with Suzuki motorcycle parts at diverse range of Suzuki motorcycles.

 

Installing a clutch at 1996 Suzuki RM 125s. The most common question that comes up during this kind of work is asking about bolts and springs and their tightening to specific torque.  If the bolts are 8mm, the torque spec is about 8-29 depending on the grade of bolt.

 

Carburetors reinstall at 1982 Suzuki GS-650GL. This common problem with Suzuki motorcycle parts happens when taking the carburetors out and trying to get it back in. There are rubber connectors that go between the carburetors and engine connected to the engine. Installing this should be done easily, but the problem can occur with rubber connectors that go to the air box and when trying to slide the whole assembly into the space between the engine and frame. Most motorcyclists are trying to hook the carburetors to the engine and front boot, but they couldn’t get the air box boot to go in. The simple answer to this is is to replace the boots with new ones. It seems that the air boxes are often installed before the engines are placed into the frames at the factory.

 

Electrical issue with 2000 Suzuki VS800 Intruder. Having this kind of electrical problem is equal to not be able to start your motorcycle at all. Maybe the motorcycle’s light will give you little hope by responding few seconds, but let us explain further. To eliminate if the batteries are good – hook the charger. Also check out the fuses. If everything is good – clean the battery terminals.


Suzuki motorcycle parts install issue

While doing the cleaning and installing the motorcycle parts back, often motorcyclists find it difficult to manage it successfully. In the motorcycle culture there are rumors with installing difficulties at Suzuki motorcycle parts at older motorcycles, particularly at GS-650GL.

The most common problem happens when taking the carburetors out and trying to get it back in. There are rubber connectors that go between the carburetors and engine connected to the engine. Installing this should be done easily, but the problem can occur with rubber connectors that go to the air box and when trying to slide the whole assembly into the space between the engine and frame. Most motorcyclists are trying to hook the carburetors to the engine and front boot, but they couldn’t get the air box boot to go in.

Most of the people would ask themselves what proper sequence to use when assembling these motorcycle parts.

But simple answer to easy resolving is to replace the boots with new ones.  It seems that the air boxes are often installed before the engines are placed into the frames at the factory.

When installing Honda motorcycle parts, motorcyclist often run on the same kind of installing issue, especially at Honda’s four cylinder machines, which are compounded by the carburetor connector boots hardening up.
