Title: LT250r Powervalve
Post by: HerbieJ on August 22, 2016, 10:29:53 am
Hey guys,

I bought an all original Suzuki LT250r last year and have always wondered why it felt kind of gutless at low speed and is very easy to kick over.  The other day I looked through the powervalve sight glass as I broght the RPMs up and noticed that there was no motion of the power valve.  Is there an effective way to free up a stuck power valve without pulling the jug?  The bike has very low hours, had sat in storage for 5-10 years prior to me buying it and had always run BeNOL.  I'm fairly certain it is gummed up due to Caster Oil and how long it has sat over the years.

Thanks in advance

you can pour 2 stroke mix gas into the exhaust at the cylinder , then gently rock  the exhaust valve with long nose plier using the side of the exhaust valve adjuster , remove the adjuster cover ans spring .after that drain the excess fuel

Perfect!  I'll give that a try
