89 Suzuki lt250s valve adjustment

Recommended Posts

Hey guys 

I need some help finding the cover to see if the piston is in top dead center to adjust the valves.  This is a kick starting model. Also I had rebuilt the carb yesterday,  I pulled a bone head move and forgot to count the turns on the jet and idle air mixture screw. Can you please help. 

Thank you

One and a half to to two turns on the carb screw is the normal amount. As for finding tdc, you will have a screw that goes into the case on the left side of quad. It is an about 1/2" plug that unscrews. In screw it and spin the motor over until u get a "T" and that means ur at top dead center

I removed the bolt on left side of the cylinder. I cannot see a T . Is there a certain angle I need to look to see it?

thanks

What you need to remove depends on if it's the chain or shaft drive. It should be detailed on those pages I sent you.

Thanks 

it is a chain drive. I thought that the engine side cover would have to come off. 

Have a merry Christmas

      Been slow in starting up, in the recent past it would start up in <1/2 second of the button press with a snap. Now it takes several seconds of cranking to get going. Once going runs as it always did. Replaced the plug no change. Battery is good.
      Before I tear it apart and look things over was hoping others might have had the same experience and have a quick fix for me
      Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions to get this old machine starting quickly again as it has for 20 years.

      i ordered a keihin carb for my 07 trx 90 and it fits nicely but the new cable they sent is way too long and i can't make it work.  the old honda cable cap [that fits on top of the carb] is too small to fit.  the keihin cap is approx 3/4 or 19mm.  honda cap is more like 1/2 in.  the keihin has a rubber boot on the cap where the throttle cable goes through . i don't know how to find the right length [most cites don't give the length].  i'm not sure how cables fit into that boot  and do i need to add the length of the boot to the cable?  the old honda cable is 28 inches total, but the cable movement is only approx 2'' which would not be enough to reach the actuator block on the keihin.  looking to find a throttle cable compatible with the keihin.  any help, please.
