I'm guessing you saw this..... I don't know that fore and aft is important except to correctly position the pin in the slot. The PO on my son's bike - pictured - seems to have used a plate to mount the Scotts on there. May be a consideration?

Another link I had stored that may help http://www.scottsperformance.com/litrack/219.pdf

Procycle Shock Shaft Assemly and Spring Issue

Just an FYI to those that might purchase the shock shaft assembly from Procycle. I purchased the shock shaft assembly and spring from Procycle and I just got a call from the suspension guy working on my bike letting me know the stock spring collar won't fit.

When I asked Procycle via email about buying the front fork solution kit and rear shaft assembly I was advised the only other thing I'd need to purchase is one bottle of shock oil. Well, looks like I also would need a new spring adapter collar. Bike is apart and both Procycle and Race Tech are closed :-(

So, if you're going to order, double check that it comes with an adapter collar or if you need to order one separately.

Sprocket carrier to axle fit

The place where the sprocket carrier makes physical contact with the axle seems to have a rather large tolerance.
The bearing is in perfect shape, then the spacer/adaptor thing fits snugly into the bearing. But then the spacer/adaptor peice doesnt seem to fit snugly on the axle. Has anyone else noticed this on their bike?

It's at 1/16 - 1/8 open. By 1/4 open, the bike is well in to acceleration and is pretty smooth from there on. The bike itself only has about 6000 miles on it, but it's sat for much of it's lifetime. As previously stated, I acquired it with a grenaded case and have since replaced the bottom end. The carb was pretty gummed it from sitting for so long, but it's not known exactly how long that actually was. The worst of it was found in the float bowl where the main jet resides, and the brass fitting that resides in the plastic float itself was completely clogged. Took me a few tries to get that open.

Aces - some of those kits shipped from Race Tech missing the spring seat. Give our sales dept a call on Monday morning. Talk to Drum or Matt, they are both familiar with the missing spring seat problem.

Float height misadjustments, clogs and parts wear aside, that would point to the pilot jet. Does the problem improve or get worse when the cold start enrichment circuit is activated? How about as the engine warms up?

How deep are the indentations in the corners of the slide guide, concentric to the bore, adjacent to where the slide bottoms?

Thanks for the help TrophyHunter I think the Scotts is smaller than the GPR by a good 20-30 mm in width mine will have to go on top of the bars as shown I know crappy pics will show finished job later.

In the oil pressure test port, bottom front center of the engine. It uses one of the old tech temp sensors, not the newer ring around a banjo bolt:

Ok, close enough.

I know the float's correct. I didn't try the choke last round of testing, but I can certainly warm it up again and see what happens. Didn't notice any visual wear on any of the internal parts, but I will get some high resolution photos of the inside of this thing next time I take it apart. It might help you to see what I am seeing...

Thanks!

So, I have an '02 with a seized front calliper, a slight oil leak at the cylinder top and the itch to buy a brand spanking NEW one! Looks like Suzuki has made no changes to this wonderful machine for yet another year? Any reason NOT to buy a new one? Didn't think so. It's a bike I will have forever. They're just so damn simple!

"Any reason NOT to buy a new one? Didn't think so."

huh?

i can't think of a single reason for you to buy a new one! imagine how nice you could make yours if you took only half the money a new one costs and used it to trick yours out...

My DR's brake fluid is starting to look dirty - thanks for reminding me that it's time to flush the brakes with clean fluid.

Like Happy Trails panniers, big gas tank, a shock upgrade, new gasket kit and use the left over cash for a really nice trip to AK or Mexico? Mine only has 8K on the odometer. This has crossed my mind.
