And am hoping to get some advice on foot position. What part of the foot should be resting on the peg? My bike has a relatively upright riding position and I can't really decide. Is the heel supposed to be directly on the peg or is the peg supposed to be in the arch of the foot (in front of the heel of the boot)? The bike is really comfortable overall but my right ankle has been sore because I can't seem to figure out what's comfortable. I know it's probably a matter of what is most comfortable for the rider, but does anyone have any suggestions?,I would not recommend putting your heel on the peg; it can easily slip off and you will have little ability to stand up on the pegs if needed. You will probably get differing views here, but I ride my standard bike much like I ride a horse; footpeg in the arch of my foot at some times just like a stirrup, and footpeg under the ball of my foot at other times; again just like in a stirrup. ,,,

Put on vance and hines slips...did not rejet.. runs good...problem is after a few miles on freeway then exiting...bikes dies @ idle.. is it too hot? too lean and causing it to cut out? or could i just need...


You MUST rejet the bike!!! When cold or warming up the bike should be running in a rich mode. After it warms up you are running lean. Cheaper to rejet than replace "hole in the top of pistons".
To help prevent more problems in the future, find who ever told you that rejetting was not required, turn them around, take your right foot and kick their @#$. This could save you lots of grief and $$ in the future.

Problem getting bike into gear while riding


If the problem only happens when the bike is cold, the oil could be the problem. If the clutch lever has excessive endplay, the clutch needs to be adjusted.

Hi I am looking at buying a 1995 zxr 250 with approx 4000 miles on the clock. Should I be worried about its age if it is mechanically sound?


if that is the actual milage then u have nothing to worry about, you can tell if the miles have been tampered with by looking for wear on the foot pegs and paint, also start the bike cold and listen for any noises, ask for any records like the record of the very important 1st service where the vavles are adjusted, if all that is in order buy it.

Charging problem on 2002 929 rr1 blade


I'm thinking your battery is the wrong ah. 8.6 for that type motorcycle is quite low. I would expect around 12 - 14 ah. Actually you should not be draining the battery though. The problem may be in the alternator assy its self. Have you checked all three legs of the charging system coming from the stator? I have found the stator to be the culprit many times in this situation. The bike should not be draining the battery at all if the alternator is charging correctly. What was the oem battery ah that you replaced?

Engine noise


and it is brand new only 75 miles on it when i got it. At the 600 mile mark i did the valve adjustment and changed the oil, after another 100-150 miles, the normal ticking that you get from the motor started getting louder. I checked the adjustment on the valves again, they were good to go, and after another 50 miles or so i changed the oil again to make sure there were no metal flakes in the oil, which there werent. Do the 250's just get a little noisier as tehy break in? It seems to me its coming from the bottom end. It has automatic cam chain tensioners, so i dont think its that, and i have checked to make sure everything is tight like it should be. The ticking does go along with engine speed, and at 55-60 mph you can just barely hear it over the wind and road noise. I have worked on cars for several years, and i know some engines are just normally loud or ticky, but this is my first bike that i have ever really messed with. This normal for this bike? ,i had a 82 yamaha 650 and with 40,000 miles it was the quitest bike i ever had. i realize that doesnt really compare to ur bike but i wouldnt expect an engine to be louder after that few a miles. i would really suggest finding a forum especially for your bike (theres bound to be one) and asking around, its really a bike to bike difference ,,,
