WASHING THE BIKE
Regular cleaning of your RM is an important part of its overall maintenance. After riding your bike in extremely dirty areas, clean it thoroughly. Proper cleaning will prevent dirt from falling into critical areas undetected.
Failing to clean the bike, or cleaning it incorrectly will add to your maintenance costs and shop time because dirty parts wear prematurely. It's unthinkable that your bike could break because of improper cleaning, but it can happen.
When cleaning your Suzuki, you need a few tools, shop rags, scrub brush, bucket, liquid cleaner and access to water. Many riders use a coin-operated car wash. Coin-operated car washes are convenient and quick, but with improper use the high pressures can do more damage than good to your bike.
NOTE: A safe biodegradable, nontoxic and nonflammable liquid cleaner that works well for washing your bike is Simple Green. Simple Green can be bought through some supermarkets, hardware, garden and discount supply houses. Follow the directions on the container for recommended dilution ratios.
When cleaning your bike, especially when using a spray type degreaser, remember that what goes on your bike will rinse off and drip onto your driveway or into your yard. If you can use a degreaser at a coin-operated car wash.
If you are cleaning your bike at home, place thick cardboard or newspapers underneath your bike to catch the oil and grease deposits as they are rinsed off.
Changes in temperature, humidity and particularly elevation can greatly affect engine performance. Carburetor jetting changes can bring performance back to normal.
If weather conditions and elevation are different from one race to the next, you should check jetting before the event. However, if the engine is stock and in good overall condition, the jetting probably wont need to be changed unless you go from one elevation to another. Refer to Table 1 for stock carburetor specifications.
Any changes in the engine such as port modification, larger carburetor or special exhaust system , can require a complete rejetting of the carburetor to get maximum possible performance.
If such performance changes have been made, follow the advise of the performance equipment manufacturer or tuner to find the best starting point for rejetting the carburetor.
Rejetting must be carried out carefully and systematically for the best possible results. A hurried or random approach to rejetting the carburetor often results in poor performance or damage to the engine. Always keep records of the jetting changes tried and what the results were.
This book is great. For anyone who wants to do work on their bike themselves this is the book you should buy. It has everything from air pressure, how to put a new top-end in your bike, fuel mixture, and suspension. It has full diagrams of everything, so you can't go wrong. I urge you to buy this book.
