2006 Suzuki RM250

Redesigned cylinder exhaust ports to improve roll-on acceleration at very low rpm, power output at low-to-mid rpm and higher torque feel from mid-to-high rpm: – Exhaust port timing advanced – Sub-exhaust port timing advanced and shape revised for optimum flow

Revised exhaust valve system for improved roll-on acceleration, increased power at all rpm levels with increased torque at low rpm: – Tip of main exhaust valve reshaped to delay exhaust port timing – Redesigned side exhaust valve cam for improved valve sealing – Improved side exhaust valve cam rod, main exhaust valve arm and linkage

Shorter intake pipe for improved low rpm response

New carbon fiber reed valve to improve low rpm engine response

Increased clearance between the crankshaft and crankcase to change the primary compression ratio to improve mid-range rpm torque and controllability

Increased clutch durability with redesigned plates and more durable clutch housing

Revised ignition map for increased low rpm engine response

 


NEW CHASSIS:

New frame with reinforced tank rail, lower engine bracket, plus head pipe relocated 5mm rearward for increased straight line stability

Renthal tapered aluminum handlebars with Renthal-labeled handlebar pad – lighter than standard bars – rubber-mounted to reduce vibration

Updated swingarm design featuring a taller main beam section for increased rigidity and improved straight-line performance

Improved front fork with emphasis on better cornering and straight line performance: Increased slide pipe thickness for improved overall chassis balance and smoother mid-stroke movement. Revised compression and rebound damping valve settings for smoother mid-stroke movement and better overall suspension balance. New handlebar mount for Renthal handlebars

Improved rear shock performance with emphasis on better cornering and straight line performance: Revised compression and rebound damping valve settings for smoother mid-stroke movement and better overall suspension balance. Revised spring rate for better overall chassis balance

New hex-head-style rear brake rotor mounting bolts for easier brake disc maintenance

New rear brake pad material for increased braking performance and improved rider feedback
