LUBRICATION, MAINTENANCE AND TUNE-UP
If this is your first experience with an ATV or motorycycle, you should become acquainted with products that are available in auto or motorcycle parts and supply stores.
REAR AXLE, SUSPENSION AND FINAL DRIVE
Look into the tune-up tools and parts and check out the different lubricants such as motor oil, locking compounds and greases. Also check engine degreasers, like Gunk or Bel-Ray Degreaser, for cleaning your engine prior to working on it.
The more you get involved in your ATV the more you will want to work on it. Start out by doing simple tune-up, lubrication and maintenance. Tackle more involved jobs as you gain experience.
The Suzuki ATV is a relatively simple machine but to gain the utmost in safety, performance and useful life from it, it is necessary to make periodic inspections and adjustments.
It frequently happens that minor problems are found during such inspections that are simple and inexpensive to correct at the time, but which could lead to major problems if not corrected.
This chapter explains lubrication, maintenance and tune-up procedures required for all Suzuki LT230 models. Table 1 is a suggested factory maintenance schedule. Tables 1-7 are located at the end of this chapter.
This chapter contains repair and replacement procedures for the rear wheel, rear hub, rear suspension and final drive unit (models so equipped). Service to the rear suspension consists of:
Tire removal and repair are covered in Chapter Eight.
- Periodically checking bolt tightness.
- Replacing swing arm bushings (models so equipped).
- Checking the condition of the rear shock absorber (models so equipped) and replacing it as necessary.
Refer to Table 1, located at the end of this chapter, for rear suspension torque specifications.
The repair manual I bought helped me bring back to life my bike, it's really helpful in many ways with the full in-depth photos and step-by-step instructions, from oil changes to carb adjustments with full view pictures. It really helps to get the job done! In some instances it shows the pictures for both models, so you can get the right idea what they are talking about. I could'nt have done it without this repair manual, the manuel I got this time (I've bought so many), was for my Suzuki LT230 and 250 repair manual from Clymer. I also got an ATV Projects book and it helps on all my ATV projects. Thanks.
