Coming back together nicely, great bikes I have 2 250's and a 400.
I'm working on a center stand for my 82 PE175.
Does anyone know if Suzuki used 1 center stand for all the PE bikes or were each one different between years and engine sizes?
Different length legs of stand?
They are different
I'm curious. What are the rest of you using to pull clutch springs? My old exhaust spring puller doesn't fit through the holes in the pressure plate. 1980 PE175
82 PE175 ignition timing? The manual says to line up the scribed line on the backing plate to the center of the mounting screw hole. But the arrow molded into the engine case that I assume corresponds to where the scribed line on the backing plate puts the timing slightly forward off center from the mounting screw hole.
So not to be anal about it but the reason I'm asking is my bike kicks back hard now after removing and cleaning the whole ignition , flywheel, etc and it never has done that before?
So question is how much difference does it make in the ignition timing going from one end of the screw slot to the other ? I think I advanced it a little when matching the scribed line up to the arrow on the case.
To retard the timing , I rotate backing plate clock wise if motor is turning in counter clock wise direction when running?
How much do I retard to get rid of kick back that hurts my widdle hoofy?
If others are reading this that above mentioned tool is most definetely not the tool for this job. It's way too big. I ended up building my own spring hook.
I Have a nice 82 PE175 full floater that I have been mechanically restoring to ride. I have thought about cutting the pipe in 2 to pull out the 40 years of oil build up on the baffling and mat silencing stuff inside the pipe. Any advice or online vids of how to go about it? Or is just cleaning the silencer on the end of the pipe good enough? Thanks
Here's a vintage 'trick' I've heard many times and never tried myself.
Got my bike back from the shop the other day. Rebuilt the bottom end. I painted up the engine and pipe. New front tire, new brakes, new cables, carb rebuilt, lights wired up, new throttle assembly, and some new plastics.
Got a few more things to do, mostly cosmetic, but it’s almost done!
