My front hydraulic fork is leaking oil

Hi Bill:
That's the nature of the beast as it get's older.
There are seals in the forks and if the piston (Chrome sliding part) is not damaged, you may be good for a few more summers just by changing the seals.
There are some people who suggest adding a bit of automatic transmission fluid, or something like a seal renew fluid to the fork oil. If you're going to try this you have to block the bike up so that the front wheel is just kissing the ground. Then you remove the plug from the top of the fork. There is a spring that will leap out like a snake from a mailbox so make sure you control it.
Depending on the age of the bike, condition of the forks, and the availability of parts, sometimes is just as economical to replace the forks. Who knows, it might even lead to some extreme customizing!

Want to know how to empty clean &and refill radiator on a RS125 99 if you can help I appreciate it

Sounds like an

Aprilia Rs 125

if so you can look for a drain plug OR you can remove the lowest hose on the radiator and let the coolant drain out there and then there is a coolant overflow/fill bottle and you can refill it there aqnd be sure to know how much coolant the system holds so you can know if you have filled it or have air locks and always proceed and remove any air locks you might encounter. Buying a service mqnual is always a wise thing to do if you are going to do ANYTHING on the bike by yourself otherwise DIY is not a good or economical process.

What has gone wrong?

No compression? You checked this how? With no compressin, this means there is no closure going on in the engine. You might have a broken valve (s); a hole in the piston; blown head gasket; or other problem; or a combination of problems. If there is NO compression, I would start by emoving the heads and having a look. It may not be economical to fix, rather, if this requires engine tear down, you might want to replace the engine or the entire machine.

I have a 06 yz250f that will not go into gear and when it does it seams that it skipping sounds like its in between gears and when it gose into gear and iam in top gear it goes and it seams to have a pause...

Sounds like a selector rod has bent in the gearbox and the damage has got progressively worse by damaging the teeth on various gears. Drain the gearbox oil into a suitable container and look for any signs of metal particles or broken gear teeth. Firstly if you are not mechanically minded or don't have a repair manual and suitable tools then this is a job for the bike shop. This can be a very expensive repair. It can be more economical to fit a known good secondhand replacement engine, best o luck.

My Suzuki GS 500E has low compression

Low compression is typically a sign of worn piston rings. The fix is very expensive - overhaul of the engine. You may find it is more economical to replace your motorcycle.

Before you go over the edge, I suggest you have your engine looked at by a professional, who can ascertain if in fact your compression is low and will have a prety good guess at the cause and the repairs required.

You can probably get some more miles from your motorcycle by using heavier grade oil ... if it is worn rings, it will ONLY get worse, it will not improve.

My wind bike seems to be having more black colored smoke emissions? whats the problem? the valve was mop already and adjusted.

I am not familiar with your Baja Wind 125 motorcycle, however, normally, black smoke is associated with too much unburned fuel in the exhaust - too rich a mixture. Is your choke fully open when this is happening? Are yo usure? Remove and examine your spark plug(s). I expect they will be sooty sooty black. Is your air filter clean, the air path completely unobstructed? Have you messed with the fuel adjustment? (I am not familiar with the term 'mop') Is your bike equipped with a Cat Converter? If so (not likely ...) it may have to be cleaned or replaced.

Some times, black smoke or sootie plugs results from using too low a gear, not running the engine fast enough for the riding conditions. Usually, the engine will buck if you are expecting too much from it by being in too high a gear. This is a very rare condition, having too low RPM for conditions.

FYI, Black smoke = too much fuel, Gray or Blue smoke = burning oil (worn rings?), White smoke (in water cooled engines) = water in the oil, blown head gasket or other trouble.

If your bike was recently serviced, I suggest you return to the mechanic and have them take another look at your motorcycle. If not, this may not be a bad idea anyway. You do want your motorcycle to perform optimally, right? Best ride and economical operation = most fun.

Some other things you can try, get a hotter plug. Replace the air filter.

I hope this helps you with your Black Smoke issue.

Hi, i want to purchase a good bike interms of every thing like.. look, performance, milage and reliable. plz suggest me soon my budget is 75000

For $75,000.00 dollars US, you can get anything you want. I don't know what your currency is as I don't know where you are located and please do not say.

Honda 600 or 750 Shadow would be my choice. I particularly like the Aero. Shaft drive; disc brake; 400 # capacity means enough for a passenger in most cases. Time proven engine design. Water cooled. Comfortable to ride. Has a range of about 150 miles per tank. At 50 + MPG, the Shadow is economical to operate. A Shadow can be had for under $9,000.00.

Does that help?

Thanks for your interest n and please come again.

I have 2004 150CC pulsar. i would like to change its looks like a new pulsar. what will be the almost cost for it ?

There are many specilist who can modify your bike to you need and budget and you must get in touch with one of them in your city.
Make sure that the alterations do not affect the techincal speccifications of the engine and bike to give a lower performance but should be made only to enhance the look and performance.
also the budget you have must be moderate to the cost of the bike as the resale factor should be considered or a newer bike with bettter features can be looked into.
Hope you understand my tips.

Is 60,000km's alot for a 2003 v-rod?

Well, let's look at it this way. The bike is six years old so that's 10,000km's a year. Here in the states, that would be 6,200 miles per year which is considered high mileage on a motorcycle here. Most riders here are recreational riders rather than transportation riders and their mileages usually is about 2,500 miles per year.

More importantly than the total number of miles on the machine is the quality of the upkeep on the bike. Has the oil been changed on a regular basis and has the little things that go wrong with a daily ridden bike been repaired. I've seen bike with that much mileage on them in great shape but bikes with much less mileage in terrible shape.

Next, it the bike appropiately priced having that much mileage on it? You should be able to go to a bank and find out what the value of the bike is. Make sure you ask them about the mileage factor.

Good Luck and Ride Carefully
