Re: A Kiwi's Kizashi Question

It sounds as if you know what the facts are and are hoping for a way around them. "Stancing" is idiotic, it looks stupid to everyone except the children who do it. It means reduced ride quality, grip of the tires, life of the tires and suspension parts. It's the equivalent of marrying a su...

Re: Creaky swaybar

Yes, Progress, that was it! I read an in depth article about the best grease for polyurethane bushings. It stressed the importance of PTFE (Teflon).

Creaky swaybar

I have the RRM rear swaybar with urethane mounting bushings. Actually made by another company that I can't remember, the stickers are around here somewhere but I've moved three times since then. About a year after putting it on it started creaking, I eventually narrowed it down to the mounting bushi...

Re: Question time

There are two filters for the CVT, a wire screen inside the pan and a cartridge type filter where the cooling hose goes into the cooler. http://www.kizashiclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=39621#p39621 The fuel filter is inside the gas tank and a major job to replace. Scheduled for 150K miles, I'd igno...

Unplug and replug everything you can get your hands on. This is ALWAYS good advice. I'd also check for a vacuum leak. The computer is asking the Intake Air Control to raise the idle for cold start, and it's seeing a different result than it expected.

Re: Tyre size

I'm on my second set of 245's, no problems whatsoever. Yeah, I thought you were the one with them. Any specific reason why 245's? I imagine they grip a bit better and look nicer on the car but at the cost of potentially more road noise, fuel consumption, and higher price for the extra 10mm of rubbe...

Re: 2011 Suzuki Kizashi Turbo

Welcome kentonhills ! It's been nine years since this guy was last on the site, he's probably five cars down the road by now. I'd guess his body kit came from Road Race Motorsports https://roadracemotorsports.com/store/, they were pretty heavy into Kizashi when they first came out, lost interest pre...

Re: Kizashi Rims

I bet they'll look great on a white car. What size are they?

EDIT Oh my, need to work on my reading comprehension. You said 18" right there.
