Re: new project

$5.66 will only get you one shim. You need to measure each clearance. If not up to specs you need to change the shim. You'll probably be able to re use a couple of the shims for another valve and only replace a couple. See the manual in the download sticky.

Re: new project

The Yosh sticker must be worth 10hp. Not a bad trade, but what did the MX250 look like?

Re: new project

well i liked the way the stock paint looks, so i will probably put back to stock. i am going to make a video of the way it sounds today so i can get some more advice.



with this tick thats in this bike doesnt do it when first started after about 45sec to a min of running it starts to be audible oil is a bit dirty but not bad i will have a video on youtube in a today.

Re: new project

I'm not really sure at all, but is that what it would sound like if the cam chain was loose and slapping around in there

Re: new project

you might find that the valve shims interchange with the latter xs series engines or even shims from other makes. never know...might get lucky

Re: new project

ok so i just got do pulling off the cam chain tentioner found a lil bit of metal in the oil that came out. so i checked the oil again and bummer metal flakes. so from what i have been reading i may as well tear her down and rebuild hu cuz metal up that far in the motor there is most defenitly bearing damage what du all think

Re: new project

What i heard on the video sounds mostly like valve clearance. All GSXR oilers are quite noisy. Getting the valves and carbs (cleaned, float hight adjusted, synchronized) right plus making sure cam tensioner is working right will help to some extent but at idle it will never be silent.

If you're thinking about a rebuild you can do the routine maintanance first and see if that helps, you'll have to do that anyway. Service the carbs thouroughly. And setting valve clearance is not that big a deal. I'ld try that first, along with new oil and filter.

Just wondering why you are going to spend so much money on a shim kit. The last time I didn my valves, I figured out which ones I needed and got them thru the local suzuki dealer. It took a few days to get them but I think I paid less than $15 for the three or four shims I needed. I don't know what you budget is but I do know that there's other areas that you will need that money judging by the pics.

Re: new project

That doesn't look like a bad deal but You could probably go to a local motorcycle repair shop and buy the shims you need from them. It doesn' even have to be a dealer, if they service bikes they will have the shims. After swithching and swaping mine around I only had to buy 5 at $2 each. It would be nice to just have the kit though

That tick does not sound good, and with metal flakes in the oil that is also a bad sign. I'm dealing with the same thing right now but not quite as bad. I expect a rod is knocking in mine because I have lots of glitter in the oil, it looks like a stripper spilled her makeup in the oil pan! You may want to check your oil pressure, good luck finding the correct fitting though.
