I was down 1/2 quart. Is it usual to burn that much oil in 700 miles or did the mechanic forget to change the oil at the 600 miles service? Husband bought a duplicate bike and he wasn't down at all. I can see being down 1/2 quart with a total mileage of 1100 miles (maybe) but not in the 700 miles since the oil change. Like a dummy I didn't check the fluids after the initial service. It looks clean, but I'm planning a 1200 mile trip next week and am not quite sure if this is normal...if you experienced guys think its okay, I guess I'll have to make room in my bags to carry oil! Any opinions appreciated...,1. Sounds like the mechanic didnt do his job right. 2. Just have your hubby do it. cheaper and you know its done right.......,,,

Again on 175 cc yamaha yah its 2-stroke and the motor cycle is new its only 2 months old and 1 month in use,i changed the gear oil after 615 miles but the warning light is still on,more answers please as i...


Two months old, 600 plus miles ... I dont know the answer to resetting this light but I believe I would put in a quick call to the fellow who sold me the motorcycle. When you see him or her, ask them to show you all the things you need to know about your motorcycle like where are the tools and the owners manual. The fuses, any special tools the casual rider needs, maintenance schedule etc. It will be time well spent.

2003 HD Low Rider. Went to crank and gas+oil


sounds like stuck needle valve if it's carbureted,letting the gas run into the engine filling it up,has to go somewhere if its full,you need to drain it out,don't try to start it,with all that gas in the oil it will not get proper lubrication resulting in engine damage.Shut off the fuel valve or it will continue to run into the engine.Hope this helps

750 gpx annual maintenance


600 mile service. Change oil adjust brakes, clutch, and chain. evey week check your fluids and tires. I dont remember what service is after 600 but change your oil more often than not. 3K for conventional and 5k for synthetic is the usual agreement. Other than your oil, cables, and chain. I dont think your next service is till 10K miles I THINK. If you have a torque wrench its a good idea to put all your bolts into spec every week or two, espically the rear axle nut(36mm 72.5lbFT)

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 ,,,
