Also the hydraulic circuit is meager and sometimes the lift won't go up. The fix is to increase the spring pressure on the bypass valve. Wait for a sale to buy one, they're barely worth that price.
Hi Neil!

Thanks for the info!

This is the one that I recently bought.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Motorcycle-...72.m2749.l2649

I bought a different one from an online store that is a bit different. Regarding the item in the link above, the rubber wheels make it interesting to roll around the garage, as they actually grip the floor and cause the stand to wander when transporting a bike from one end of my shop to another. However, the rubber wheels provide stability when simply working on the bike, as it's not the easiest to simply roll around.

Also, the hydraulics do suck quite badly. It takes a couple of pumps to re-prime the system, but once you get it going it's fine. The locking bar helps to secure the stand at height.

With the rubber wheels that thing isn't going anywhere easily. It requires effort to move, and the wheel locks are effectively for looks. If you get a model with hard plastic wheels, now, that's a different story...

They are on sale this week! I have had mine for almost 10 years now. It does sometimes take a few pumps to get it up. Where is this spring to alter? It is nice to have the wheel on as I can move it around fairly easy and out of the way to park the car inside during winter.

It's been a few years since I fixed mine. Somewhere in the base casting there is a screw. I just can't remember if that screw is a plug and the actual adjuster is below it. Only took about a quarter turn to increase the preload on the bypass spring.

Default Some Updates and you said Whoa in 1984.

I am waiting for some of engine parts to arrive and my suspension is inbound from Works Enduro Rider. I tried to get some other things knocked out.

I put two oem orings into my brake pedal and a oem new spring and oem spacer on the folding end.








In 1984 this is how you put the "whoa" on your runaway motocrosser.



Thats right, just a single wire, no casing nothing else. Just a single pin connecting it to the rear brake pedal.



I installed the radiator mounts, three on each side.




New rear Sprocket arrived.

Default More Little Stuff

Some medium strength lock tight.




Suzuki manual calls for 24 to 30 foot pounds, I set them at 26 foot pounds.




I snapped the new louvres onto the metal radiator guards.
