But runs great all maintenance up to date...) without knowing much about Ducatis. Still the sounds the smell and the roaring torque sold me on the test ride. I'm in love but love needs work. I just need to hear your perspective. Is the 2002 900s platform worth keeping or is it a terminally nerfed sport motorcycle (eg. nerfed compared to it's 'R' cousins)? Does the V2 2 valve/cylinder engine have enough room to grow into or are the 4 valve per cylinder models just that much better? I'd really love to hear your input as I'm eager to learn and am picking up things pretty quickly in the Ducati world. if its worth keeping and upgrading, could you point to some good resources (sites, links articles, vendors...), or better yet, good examples of your own work? Thank you so much!,You know when you have got it right, with a ducati, as it sings along, throbs around the bends, ducks and dives through a round about, then thunders down a high street, shacking the windows and sits there purring and rattliing like an italian pre-madona, followed by that gentle reassuring tick of a air cooled engine which has just enjoyed itself. Its not how fast you can rev or how high you can pull your front wheel. its how you string the bends together. If you want to do full out rev tastic stuff by japanese. An the tinkering is part of the fun, the gentle improvement, the tacking the bike and tailoring it to you. They are Unique and all loved and members of a special family. My rant is over....... Now my personal approach is that i would work, on the charging circuit, the air filter, and then get the suspension sorted.,,,

I have a Schwinn Mirada...Taiwan...With white sticker that states. Schwinn APP Giant....About how old is it and what if any is it worth. Thanks. jim

Recent Schwinn Mirada is sold at Walmart, etc. and is a cheap bike, worth less than $100 new. Older Schwinn Mirada's (mid, late 80's) are a decent mountain bike, but value ranges widely depending on mechanical condition and appearance. Probably $100 is midrange of value.

Ni-Trac VA-500 exercise bike ( which I bought 2nd hand, in good condition) resistance has stopped working

If it was clicking the resistance motor is stuffed replace it they are quite cheap and easy done, but also make sure the flywheel is tight as they loosen over time as well. You'll need the crank tool, I made one from a m20 metric fine thread and drilled and tapped but you could probably get one from a local cycle shop. Easy job, worth doing these bikes are real nice ??

I have a next energy source 16'' bicycle and i need a crank, wondering how to get one

these can be bought from a local bike shop but in the process you may spent more money than worth putting into the bike from what you are explaining it's a 16" child's bicycle and has a single piece crank composed of a single pipe bent to be used as a crank in order for this to need replacing it would need to be inflicted with one of the following issues-threads for pedals are stripped-bent beyond usable condition-or completely missing otherwise a shop can get you up and running fairly cheap if you feel capable of this repair simply pick up some bearings made to fit and its clear sailing hope this helps

I need a gasket kit A for my 1984 Honda cb700sc nighthawk s but the one for my bike is super expensive. Any ideas what other models might work or a cheap place to find them?

I assume you went to Honda and they want your left kidney for the gasket set! Here,s the thing many of the after market gasket sets are good and most are close to the original BUT if you are going to keep this bike my advice is to pay the money and get the real thing.I learned this lesson the hard way when I bought an aftermarket set and 25% of the stamped holes where in the wrong place.Bought a Honda set in the end.Good luck and good riding.

Denali GMC 700C Women's road bike wrong tires!!!

Can you explain why you think the tires are too big? Do they NOT fit the rims? What condition was this bike in when you bought it? If the brake pads line up with the rims then the wheels are correctly sized for the frame.

Hi there, i was wondering how good the quality is when it comes down to the important factors of the Titan Fusion 26" Men's Dual-Suspension All-Terrain Bicycle, i am unsure if its worth getting, I want a...

If you want to buy a NEW dual-suspension mountain bike that is worth buying, be prepared to spend at least $700 dollars. A GOOD dual-sus bike will run upwards of $1500 and a very nice one will be over $2000. Anything new for under $500 is generally rubbish and money down the drain. The components will be bad, the manufacturing will be bad, the frame will be bad and it will no doubt be problematic if ridden more than occasionally on the street only. i might suggest looking at bike forums or craigslist for a used bike made by one of the reputable manufacturers like Giant, Trek, Specialized, Cannondale or the like. Bargain bikes are not a bargain at all, but money down the drain.

i hope this helps,

I have a dtr 125 its bogging out before the powervalve has chance to kickin it revs fine in neutral but when i ride it i have to change gears quick and will only do about 45mph

i have the same problem. i have recently bought a 1998 dtr, but when we had a closer look at the engin, it wasnt worth keeping. so managed to get a 2006 engin. i fitted this. but the bike seems reallys slow. I then opend the powervalve. but the bike boggs out just as i get in to the power band. i was told to re jett the bike to a 260. so will be getting that done soon. will tell you what it goes like mate.

I just bought a suzuki gsx 600f from 1993. It is to high.

There are lowering kits available for the rear suspension then you need to drop the frt the same amount that you drop the rear,you can drop the frt by loosing the frt triple tree clamps and using a ruler let the forks come up through the same amount that you drop the rear(this will help keep the bike from over steer.

Zune cracked screen.

I hope you still have warranty, if you dont; get angry at the place where you bought and theyll most likely get you a new one to keep their good name.

if that fails, do a drive-by paintball shooting at Bill Gates' house.
