But I have a few questions. Does something like a DesertStorm fit in the back of a non-longbed f150 ram etc? What do I need to pull this off? Do most trucks have a place to tie in the straps? aaaand How do I get it up there? How about smaller trucks...does a rebel fit on the bed of a tacoma frontier, ranger, dakota? EDIT: oooh a cargo van might be easier to load...does a rebel fit inside one of those? Do cargo vans have rails or something to tie the straps?,A standard size pickup bed is 6' with the tailgate up, 8' with the tailgate down. The length of a Rebel shouldn't be six feet, so I assume it'll probably fit in the back of that truck well. Measuring both won't hurt. Just be sure to use ramps. Free-lifting bikes into the bed of a truck is not fun.,,,

Id like to know if you can test your magneto without a multi circuit tester ? if i am getting spark, is my magneto still good? how do i read the numbers to know what year i in fact have ?

If you are getting a strong, blue, spark on a known, good spark plug, then the magneto is good. If the spark is weak (barely visible), then it is most likely the clearance or rust build up.

The easiest thing to do is check for rust on the surface of the magneto and the surface of the pick-up coil. Emery cloth is good for removing rust on both. Then check for the clearance between the pick-up coil and the magneto. The closer to the magneto, the more powerful the spark (but rotate the magneto to ensure it never touches). When you loosen the screws on the pickup coil to adjust, make sure you have a business card to place between the surfaces to keep them from touching. The strong magnet in the magneto will pull the pickup coil to itself. Tighten the screws and remove the business card. Check for clearance as you rotate the magneto.

The only thing that can go bad in a magneto situation is the pickup coil. So, if you're getting a spark, it most likely is not the pickup coil because it will either produce a spark or won't.

My2011 570 seems to run out of fuel and simply stop. After about 5 min it will start then a few minutes latter after riding it simply stops again. It will not start immediately. Tried the basics of taking...

Sounds like you have the common problem of a plugged fuel pick up. You need to remove the fuel pump, pickup, and sender unit deep in the fuel tank. Its quite common for these bikes to come with a substanitial amount of junk in the tank. There are fuel pickup sceens available for the pickup that seem pretty good at preventing this problem form reoccuring. once you remove the pick up unit, clean the screen (usually plugged with plastic mold remnants. You may want to check the injector if it doesn't run 100% after reassembly. Injector fouling is rare nut not unheard of. is a good forum for owners

Having problems with transmision. What is the cheapest way to fix. Buy another motor, or just transmision?

Best is to take an estimate from the Experts before you think of a full change.
Might be a an overhauling with the corrrect spares - original- will be the best option than a full change.
So take an estimate and decide.

FI lights stays on, popped on last night while

FI means fuel injection and your bikes computer is picking up a problem and letting you know that maintenance has to be performed for peak efficiency. you can go to the dealer and have them read the codes and you can decide whose going to do the repairs. or just try some Seafoam, buy it at Autozone pour 1/3 to 2 gallons fuel, it wont hurt it, and ride it around getting on every once in awhile, for about 10 to 15 miles, then you might have to disconnect the battery to reset the light...these are just the cheapest things to try. let me get some feedback on this thanks!

Pick up

1). smaller front or bigger rear sprocket..
2).aftermarket intake reed and/or pipe..
3). larger aftermarket piston(possibly with better compression ratio).....the cheapest and easiest being the sprocket change(keep in mind you'll have to trade off a little "top end" for that added "pickup")

Very little spark on all 4 plugs how do i check if the pick ups are working or not?????

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On your query how to check pick ups - one is, a pickup should output low AC voltage (~ 0.5VAC) when engine cranking.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Heating and charging problem

A pickup is the device that "reads" when to usually fire the spark plugs. Usually on the outboard of the engine on or near the crankshaft you will have a small almost star look item with the pick mounted close to it. As the "star" points pass the pickup the signal is sent. Usuall these either work or don't no very often is it something in between, one of the exceptions is the spacing of the pickup from the "star". The is a very critical setting, too far and the signal is triggered too late or not at all. too close and just the opposite or damage. Hope this helps. As far as checking it with a multimeter I am not sure, talk to your local shop they should be able to tell you the exact "specs".

Pickup problem

the chain loosening is a common problem in bajaj bikes. you need to work it on your own. what you can do is stop accelerating suddenly on the initial pick jerks the chain more and it goes loosened. @ pick up problem,their may be a number of problems. it may be carbon on ur engine head. OR your silencer is choking OR your carburettor needs to be fixed again.. OR your piston rings need to be changed. these are the major defects which usualy come. Hope it works..:))

95 Trident pick up coil

Hi Greg

You should read less than 5000 ohms on any pickup coil. check also to see if there is any leakage to earth with the pickup still mounted. there should be none. You should read at least a few hundred millivolts of AC voltage out of the pickup when cranking. If it is intermittent, then no amount of measuring will help you tell if it is faulty, changing it out will. Hope this helps you. Good luck. Triumphs rock!!
