The bike has always been like this since new i have tried motul and maxima g/box oils. On my 125 i could just hold the throttle pined and use the clutch and shift. i feel like i am losing quite abit of time over a 6 hour event just because of this. I dont ride like this everywere but sometimes its required if ya are hearing me any ideas??? keep trying different g/box oils?? or are they all like this??The 125 probably has under-cut transmission gears. This allows better meshing of the gears under a load. There are shops that can perform that mod for you. Trying different fluids may be your best and cheapest option.,

186 red motor. Why does it have a missfire under load?

Engine is under max load in the situations you describe, so any weakness in spark or low fuel prssure can cause this, even a weak ignition module.

In need for speed most wanted how do i play the second race against baron in blacklist 10 everytime i start racing it says blown engine... so i want to know how to play

Hi there,

The secod race is a DRAG in Harbour & Ocean.


1. Second event is a Drag race, which will require you to push additional button to shift gear up or down "check your controls for configuration" to avoid blown engine sticking on gear 1. as you can see while accelerating the speedometer rises before it reaches the red boundary shift gears up to avoid blown engine.

Another simple race. Be sure to avoid the truck that'll appear on your left (#1). You won't have much time to make a correct manoeuvre. Be sure to change lanes often. use Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VIII its handling is good on tight corners an also fast.

Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Power clutch vs. regular clutch for '89 civic

Not unless you are going to be towing or hauling a large load. Lots of driving does not mean lots of shifting. Do you do most of it on the highway or dozens of short hops around town? Are you the original owner of this Civic or did someone else put miles on it before you bought it? If it lasted 20 years without wearing out, a heavy duty clutch probably isn't needed.

If you shift a lot with a heavy foot on the gas, a heavier clutch might do you some good but if you are a normal driver who puts lots of miles between up and down shifting, stick with a standard clutch.

Won't upshift under load.

In reality, the gearbox was never designed for power shifting. Time is lost in trying to do a power shift with the tranny not willing to cooperate. Give yourself a break and use the clutch. It beats a missed shift every time.

Motor replacement for A200

If the motor runs and when under a load the planetary stops its not the motor.You either have a sheared key or broken gear in the transmission.
