If it is easily removed, it probably is bad. It should take a little pressure to take out/in.

The clutch basket gear changed in 1994. They are not interchangeable unless you also change the primary gear on the crankshaft.

So I was down near a river in the bottom of a gorge yesterday and a suddenly rain storm came in, turning the clay to a mud that you cannot even walk on. So I had to ride over a mile up a steep rutted gorge with a passenger on 50/50 tires. Wound up dropping the bike 6 or 7 times.

One of those times I broke my clutch lever and another really tweaked the front end. Are all clutch levers created equally? Any recommendations? I'm hoping to get something with a longer pull (more of a bend?) since I only have a very small sweet spot in the adjustment where the clutch won't slip and it changes gears without issue.

As for the front end, I'm not sure what to do. I have never had to deal with it before.. all I know is that the handlebars are not bent. But the bars and the fender are at a different angle from the tire. Is there an adjustment clamp that I can loosen, move, then retighten to straighten it all up?

Yep, tweaked forks are usually not a big problem. Just loosen the triple clamp bolts a little (not too much or it will fall in the clamps and you will have to jack it up) and straighten (bang the tire on a rock/wall, etc) them. Kinda like you use to do your old bicycle when you let it go flying instead of parking it nicely.

Replacing the float needle is good advice, but there is generally nothing that can go wrong with the seat except getting dirty (it can be cleaned easily in an ultrasonic bath, by submerging in carb cleaner, or with a cotton swab dipped in contact cleaner).

Does this mean there is something being called a "kit" that does not contain the float needle?

Hello Greg,

I don't have a store yet, but I have some parts listed at http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=528038. Most of it is for the BST40, but as I'm sure you already know, there is quite a bit of crossover to the BST33 (see item SUZ0111100002 for instance). I also stock BST33 slide guides.

Regards,

Derek

I am currently running a kicker assembly from a 92 S model on an e-start 94 bottom end. I can confirm that the clutch basket to primary gear is not interchangeable, but the kicker gear is.

I ended up with an extra no load flash relay. Works with LED turn signals or ones with less than stock wattage. Plug and play. Even mounts to the stock location. Slightly larger than stock. $8 shipped.
Pm me if interested.

First thing to do is determine that the cable is allowing the bell crank on the carb to actually return to the stop. Or, it might just be that your idle speed is set too high. Sometimes an air leak will cause this behavior. Another possibility is a worn slide, particularly if you're running the TM33.

My bike does that hanging idle thing too once warm if I have the thumb turnable idle adjustment up too high. It won't take much.. once warm if set at 1500 rpm it will return as soon as you dump the throttle. If it's set a bit higher at like 2000 rpm, it will hang around 4000 for a couple seconds.

Kinda sucks when I have it set for 1500 rpm when it's not up to temp (and not hanging then) . Then once warm it hangs.
