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

      I took my kfx out and it didn't sound right. Besides bouncing off the rev limiter, does it sound right to you?

      Well, it overheated then started blowing white smoke!!
      I have it torn down & the cylinder appears to be warped. Going to have the head checked out next but in the meanwhile... Does anyone have the torque sequence/specs for the head bolts??
      TIA

      I'm working on a 2018 Sportsman 570 and found in the service manual that there are two different torque methods for the head bolts depending on whether the bolts are silver or black. Well, silver bolts came out of my engine and I'm going to be replacing them with new bolts, however the parts fiche doesn't specify bolt color or that there is even an option!?! 
      Has anyone on here been through this before and can offer insight??
       
      TIA

      I have a 1998 yamaha grizzly 600 4x4 I have put back to life but as soon as I had all the bugs out it blew the special "L" plug out. What causes this? Is there something special I have to do to replace this?
