But no one seems to know what I need.  Is there a certain model I need to look for?  I'm pretty new at this but I know that Pit Bull has some good stuff I just don't know which one's will fit.Pretty sure a universal will work, worst case scenario, take your bike to the bike parts store and see if they have a display model you can use to see if it fits your bike.,,,

My 1981 yamaha exciter 185 dies when i put it in gear i've already tried adjusting clutch still dies. was running fine for prior 3 months


The bike will either have a side stand cut out switch or a clutch cut out switch.

Both these will make the bike die when the side stand is down or the clutch is not pulled in

HOW TO EASILY OIL A MOTORCYCLE CHAIN WITH NO MAIN STAND


If there is no main stand on your motorbike it can be a problem sometimes, not only do side stands dig into soft ground & warm tarmac they also make it awkward to oil the drive chain !

A simple way around this is to get either :-
A piece of strong piece of wood about an inch square ( or in diameter) or
A strong hammer or mallet or
A small trolley jack handle or similar preferably with rubber or taped ends

Whatever you use it must be about an inch (or more) longer than from the ground to the right hand end of the rear spindle (axle) or underside of the right hand swinging arm, WHILE THE BIKE LEANS on its side stand: For the very few bikes that have a side stand on the right, read left hand end of rear spindle

All you have to do is raise the rear wheel slightly by pivoting the weight of the bike on its front wheel & side stand

On medium to large bikes this means getting someone else to position themself on the side stand side of the bike, where they should put 1 foot against the side stand & reach over the bike to grab a good purchase point near the rear wheel, grab the nearest handlebar end with the other hand & pivot the bike forwards on its front wheel & side stand
This will lift the rear wheel a few inches so that your prop can be placed upright between the ground & your selected point on the bike

Spin the rear wheel by hand whilst applying non fling chain lubrication to both edges of your bikes chain

SIMPLE
EFFECTIVE
NO NEED TO CARRY A PADDOCK STAND IN YOUR RUCKSACK

Ride safe

I hope this helps (if so give good feedback please)

Kawasaki troubleshooting


Bikes are fitted with a sidestand switch and clutch switch that work together. If you try to ride off with the sidestand down (switch activated), releasing the clutch activates the clutch switch and cuts the engine out. Pull the clutch in and the engine will start on the button only to cut out again if the sidestand switch is activated and you release the clutch.
A common problem is a dirty sidestand switch that stays activated even when the sidestand is lifted up. This is because it is situated low down, generally under the bike and will get covered in all sorts of road grime, especially in wet weather.
To remedy this get someone to hold the bike upright, enabling you to get on the ground and locate the switch. This can be done by raising and lowering the stand whilst looking all along the length of it paying particular attention to where it pivots and around the spring. My bike (also a Kawasaki) has a "pin" that is pushed in when the stand is down. If it gets cloggeed with road grime it also stays pushed in when the stand is raised and then cuts the engine off when I try to ride away. A good wipe around the switch area and a good dose of WD40 remedies the problem.

How oil goes in the primary for 03 Buell firebolt xb9r


Stand the bike upright (use a swingarm stand or lean against a wall), then poor one quart of oil (I recommend Harley Formula+) into either of the windows on the primary cover. The oil should be just covering the bottom of the gear visible in the larger window.

How to remove a rear axle


Under the swingarm you will see a large pinchbolt. Remove that, then jack up the rear of the bike (swingarm stand recommend), and use the 7/8" double nut from your under seat tool kit to remove the rear axle.

When I shift into first gear the engine die with the clutch fully engaged


The 2003 XB bikes have a kickstand safety switch that can fail, that is most likely the culprit in your situation.

Bike stand doesn't return


Yes , it may require some light lubricating at around the stand but first you will need to clean up throughly around the stand fittings better to use WD40 and thn some mineral oil as lubricant.
Not bad too to check the spring of its tension!
Hope this helps!
