000 miles just around the corner and the nights drawing in it is time to take the plunge and do the top end on my stroke 250 this autumn/winter. I've never attempted anything like this so if anyone has any tips or pitfalls to avoid please let me know.See my posts about about my recent seizure because a PV failed. I am pretty mechanically stupid. I never thought I'd do motor work or remove the motor. I was always amazed people on this forum did it. But I was able to remove the motor and it was pretty easy. Haven't totally disassembled it so I can't say piston replacement or bottom end taking apart is easy. But there's not much to it. Especially a top end where it's 5 nuts for the head and 4 for the cylinder. Take pictures write down things (everything you do if you want to to make sure you reverse everything) and keep some order for the parts you take off. I have put every bolt and nut I took off to disassemble something right back on so I don't end up with a big pile of bolts and nuts. Get an impact driver, a manual one is fine, to do any screw removal for the PVs. Don't even attempt to use a screwdriver or you'll mess up the screws.,,,

I have a 2004 honda rubicon 500 it has a little knock in motor not bad at all the bike will not go pass 15 miles a hour just gave fresh oil change and spark plug

Do you have a blown head gasket and arrived, or somethings cause and the knock take off the head could be the valves go online and ask what would cause a knock in that bike is the only goes 15 miles an hour sounds like you have something blown in your motor start by taking compression test it to compressions bad that something in the cylinders. You might need. It's new rings, but it hasn't knock it could be the valves. When you take the head off, you'll see the carbon buildup can try clean in that off and put it back together. Make sure you use the proper torque don't cut any corners don't tighten it too much. That's why you need to find torque setting seasonal rate bolts, but that engine sound smoked, you may have to get it reboard. If you doing the work yourself

My 99 suzuki intruder 800 is all the sudden

The key words in your question ( The last time I road it )
The problem is the slow speed jets in the carbs are plunged up This jet controls the idle circuit and the slow speed circuit of the carb In order to do it right you will need to have a pro clean the carbs. This is not a do it your self project !

AC voltage is 275vac on the powermate generator model # PM069250......engine speed is 3750 rpm (max is 3600 rpm) do i lower the speed and the 275vac to a nominal 240vac output.There is no expert...

On the engines carb. is a governor rod should connect to the front case of the engine. This rod should have an adjustment to slow the engine speed. BUT,,, are you reading the generator unloaded or without any thing plunged into it? Once you have the generator loaded with a device, the voltage should drop to a constant 240vac. 150 rpms should not make that big a difference on the voltage output, and if running under load the RPM's should drop also..

My 08 r1 has a fault code of 18 and I cannot find anywhere (short of taking it to the dealer) what it pertains to. It runs fine, but the light on is really distracting.

Try by unbolting Positve battery post, leave it off for about 10-15 seconds, reconnect battery post again and see if it still there. Normally this should reset youor computer cods to zero. Cheers

Headlights not working; found out battery was not getting charged ,how do you test to see if the stator and rectifier are working properly

get the bike running(jump start or with a freind push start)take a volt meter and put it on the 20volt scale and put the red lead on the + and the black on the -. If you get12.5- 15 volts than your charging system is working fine and it would be the battery that is not taking the charge. As for the headlight check fuse if ok then pull headlight and use a testlight to see if you have power at the plug. Also check the wires for good conection in the headlight pot. I hope this helps let me know.

I wana buy a gsxr but it has 26000 miles on it, its a 2006 bike, is that too much?

it all depends on how the bike was cared for. which i suppose you really cant know for sure, but you can do some investigating of your own by checking things like pad and rotor wear, tire wear, chain deflection (push the chain side to side and check for excessive movement), check the engine oil level, color, and smell. check for and fluid leaks and just other common sense things. some time spent and patience shown while going over a bike, as with any used vehicle, will pay off big time in the future if you decide to take the purchasing plunge! I hope this helps and good luck!

How do you check the water level in a 2001 suzuki volusia 800?


If you haven't gotten an answer yet, here's how to check the coolant level in your '01 Volusia. The coolant tank is located on the bottom left side of the engine. There is a sight slot cut in the cover that will allow you to view the level. I preferr to take the cover off (3 screws) to make sure I'm seeing the marks on the coolant tank and to check the color of the coolant. It's an easy check even with taking the covers off (about 15 minutes). If the coolant is low, or discolored, you can make the necessary adjustments.

I have a 1996 BMW1100 LT. I want to hook up a battery tender to it during the winter. I am asking how to hook the battery jumpers without taking off all the brackets, etc... Can that be done?

If you have a BMW style power outlet for accessories such as heated clothing you can use the battery tender to charge your battery through that connection. I have an '04 R1150RT which I've been charging this way since I bought it. It has a 15 amp fuse which is adequate for charging with a low amperage charger link the Battery Tender or Battery Tender JR. Don't use the connection to jump the battery as the starter will pull too much current through the 15 amp fuse. You can connect the SAE type Battery Tender leads to an SAE to BMW male outlet cable to make the connection. Alternately, you could wire a cable to the batter with an SAE connector on it and bring the SAE connector end out under the seat and plug it in that way. You can store the SAE end under the seat when not in use and not worry about it shorting out since the exposed metal end of the SAE connector is the ground connection.
