ahhhh man here we go


Recommended Posts

so i was out drivin around town when i passed a used powersports store. they had suzuki Rm250 sittin outside for $1650. no idea wat year model it is, but the bike looks clean.

im goin down soon to take a look at it. but heres the hard part. i have money saved up for suspension for my quad but now that i see this bike, im rele considering spending that money on the bike IF its in good condition.

so wats yalls opinion? 400s suspension or rm?

when i do go down there wat should i look for in a used 2 stroke? anything defects with RM models?

this will be my first two stroke and ive always wanted one.

i kno theres been numerious posts here about buying dirtbikes but hear me out.

any input is greatly appreciated

as a matter a fact i gunna race both XC and MX. but i kno alotta ppl who jus race XC on stock suspension. so i can delay MX till i get some cheap elkas.

im goin down to look at it around 3. so ill give her a kick since i dont have a tester.

ive wanted another bike ever since we sold my ttr for my 250.

anything else? valve leaking, oil spitting out?

every thing else will be obvious, check coolant its a 2 stroke so u dont hav to worry about valves, well there is a flapper valve on the bottom i cant remember wat its called. check exaust for excesive oil.

well i jus got back, and there was numerous things wrong with it.

needed new sprockets, and chain

needs to have forks rebuilt

needs 2 bar clamp bolts(how in the hell can you lose those!?).

clutch was broke off.

and front rim was bent and barely retained air.

needed new brake pads all around.

and it needed a new front & rear fender .

they wanted 1650 for it. so i offered them 1200 considering all the repairs that it will be needing. they said that the kelley blue book price is 1650 and if they cant sell it at that price within 2 weeks than he'll give it to us for 1200.

other than those problems it ran great. but im not paying blue book price for a bike that needs 400-500 buck of repairs

so thats that. and im now taking zero's advice and looking for a 125 2stroke. or a cheap 250 2 stroke if im lucky

and so the search begins :yes:

rear shock is great. almost like its new...sorta fishy huh?

i kno he tried "stuntin" it b/c the plastics has black ashpalt marks on them. and the rear fender is LOOSE. it wobbles like crazy. so obviously he hit the rear fender while doin a wheelie.

im to not worried about the forks cause my buddy knos how to rebuild them and he'll do it for me for 50 bucks.

the frame was fine. no cracks suprisingly.

i could rele care less wat brand it is. but if i had a choice it would be a yz or cr.

i jus want one that is in my budget and wont require an assload of repairs.

haha TB, i would do that if i had a spare frame, but my intentions with this bike is to have 2 toys. my fo-hundy and the bike.

dammit i wish i could sell my 250ex. that way i can get a better bike and my 400s suspension :aargh: its jus sittin there gathering dust

its almost not worth it. the lack of suspension mods and the shaft drive pulls the 250ex down. but it would be a decent drag bike :yes:

i was origianlly gunna tade it in for my 400 but my mom said she wanted it. sooo she rides it once a year and when she does ride it, all she does is complain about the seat being too firm :skeptic:

      I own a few older quads mix of kinds a couple of  Yamahas, a Honda, can-am  a Kawasaki, they are older quads but in good shape the question of the day is....... what's the best way to polish up the plastic?
       I have found that Dollar General mold remover is good to get the black stuff off the plastic works good, but was wondering how you polish up the plastics on yours.

      I have a Suzuki Quadmaster 500, that I got from a customer.  It has less than 400 miles on it.   I think I put most of the miles on it, so they sold it to me.    I used to drive it a few times a year,  treatinjg the gas or emptying it when I could.
      I relocated and wanted to get it running again.   It will start with little trouble, then run for 15-20 minutes, then start to chug a bit, then finally stop.  Sometimes I can start it again, but it doesnt continue to run long after that.
      when I first opened the oil filter when I moved, it was drenched in oil and fell apart.   I went and replaced it with a OEM foam filter.     I notice now, when it does stop, there is a small amount of oil on the bottom the air filter box, and it's clean oil.  I had recently changed the oil before I moved.     Each time I clean that up,   I go through the same process.  It will run, and I can drive it for a bit, but then it slows down and stops.  
      Any suggestions?  I am not an ATV mechanic by far, but can work on most of the stuff I own.    I did have trouble finding a dealer who would work on it.   One local one, said "We dont' work on stuff that's over 20 years old"   It can't be because of parts,  I just laughed.

      Hey All,
      Just wondering if anyone knows of any ATV junkyards and their contact info. I'm up in the panhandle of Idaho and we have no sources of used, secondhand or junkyards for atv or motorcycles nearby that I've been able to find. I've heard of some pretty large ones that operate east of me and would like to know if anyone here has a recommendation or experience in this matter. Thanks in advance.

      Hi All,
      I have a 1992 Suzuki King Quad 300. I got it in rough, picked apart condition on Facebook marketplace. The previous owner was not mechanically inclined and threw parts, and deleted parts to get this to "run". To give you an idea of what I am dealing with he put a non vacuum carb on with a separate fuel bladder mounted on the rear rack. I live in CT and things are a bit high here so I got the atv with a plow for $400. The atv came with (3) Carbs, 1 OEM, (2) petcocks 1 OEM. What I have done / found is the neutral safety switch was ate by mice (probably the original problem), fixed that, reinstalled (cleaned and put in a new needle and seat) OEM carb, the diaphragm is a little clapped out but still flexible, installed new Fuel pump, cleaned and reinstalled OEM petcock (non vacuum) has slight drip every now and again as I did not replace the tank side gasket when I installed and installed a brand new battery.  doing all that the quad fires and runs but briefly.  On the handle bar the choke paddle is broke off, I ordered that and looks like you need to remove the grip to install so haven't done yet and If i can get some direction on that as well, So that is "floating" in  the carb as I do not have the correct choke cable connector, I took the one off the Chinese carb and it somewhat holds it in place. The air box and system are gone and it has a stubby K&N cone filter on it currently.  So the way I start it is pop off the air filer, hold my hand over the carb to get a good enough vacuum to get to the bowl, then it will run for a few seconds. The tank is filled to the top, to help it out. Does anyone think I am missing anything before purchasing the entire air box system (If I can find it). This will be a yard machine for work and will not be taken out recreationally, cool little machine I would like to keep it, but unsure if I will spend the money on a airbox system as it for sure seems I am not pulling a good enough vacuum with out it.
