RTV Removal from impossible to reach spots


Recommended Posts



Hey Russell, welcome to Quadcrazy. RTV ? Are you referring to a silicone the vulcanizing type ?  I would stay away from any acid use to be honest. There are a few easy ways to do it. One I’ve used is a really good chisel and scraped it off. You have better control over a chisel then you would a razor.  Other methods I’ve looked up are using a dreamel or a pencil grinder with a soft wire brush tip and work it slowly around the edges.  Here is the video I followed and it helped. I used all three methods, razor (ok) chisel (good bit need to be careful) and a pencil grinder/dremel with the wire wheel. 

Hope this helps

It’s definitely possible that it got up onto the oil pump or the pick up.  If your splitting the engine I would assume you would see it all anyway ?  Double check and blow out all of your lines and crevices good including the banjo bolts since they have small holes in them.    

That stuff is almost impossible to breakdown so I think acid would be bad.   Your going to have to double check and make sure its all out the good ole fashion way!

Is it the red or silver ? Reason I’m asking is you stand a slightly better chance seeing the red!

      Hi all, new member here. 
      Picked up a really cheap non-runner last night from a neighbor. He had gotten it from someone else who had rebuilt it a few years ago and it has decorated his garage since.
      It is an early-90's (1992 or 93?) Suzuki LT250, but the weird part is the engine is a neon green color. I am now wondering if someone swapped the original motor out of this quad. Does anyone have experience with these that could give me a pointer as to what this could have come out of? I have heard that some Arctic Cat models had the same Suzuki motor - could that be where this came from? It is a 2WD, and has the typical chain drive/RWD system with both front and rear (rear drum) brakes. Very little rust and mostly complete, for the price I paid it isn't bad, but I am not sure how to pinpoint the engine type, and I would like to have that figured out.
      Just want to make sure what I am dealing with before ordering parts. I will need a carburetor by the looks of things, and air/oil/fuel filters, plugs, etc. 
      Thanks in advance for any help, appreciate your experience with these quads.

      Does anyone make aftermarket engine parts for the Suzuki Quadsport LT-Z50?
      Pistons, Valves, etc...?
      I have found rings and complete gasket sets.... I need an oversize piston kit and valves..
      One company is selling a piston, but upon further inspection it is an LT50 piston that they are saying is for the 2006 Suzuki Quadsport LT-Z50. Yet the LT50 Piston is not interchangeable with the LT-Z50 according to the pistons listed by Suzuki.
      Any help would be appreciated
