There should be an adjustment screw and jam nut that sit right on top of the valves in the rocker arm. Loosen up the jam nut slightly so you can turn the adjuster screw, when you have the screw properly adjusted, hold it still, while carefully re-tightening the jam nut. You will need a feeler guage and the valve clearance specs to do this properly. The specs may be in your owners manual, if not, you should probably get a repair manual anyway if you work on your own machine.

the annoying part there is getting to it! you gotta remove all that plastic! and don't lose any of those little black attachments!

It could be worse- it could be a raptor, where you start by removing the headlights....:yes:

      I need help please. This is all new to myself & my husband. We have gotten 2 used fourwheelers so we can ride with our kids (kids have go carts). One of the 4wheelers is a 1998 Suzuki Quadrunner 500 4x4. It has rearend trouble. 
      We are having a difficult time finding new or used parts, & no luck with aftermarket parts. 
      Hoping someone here can help. We were told by Suzuki dealership that some Artic Cat parts will interchange, but he wasnt sure which ones & said there are companies that produce aftermarket parts, but wasn't any help there either. 
      Any help or information is greatly appreciated.... Thank you.
