Noticed the oil needed to be changed. It started back up and ran fine for a day then broke down again had to call a tow truck to get home. I changed the oil today with the recommended oil and now its completely dead. New oil new battery new spark plugs, new coolant and a full tank of gas and its worse than when i got it 2 months ago. Don't know what to do anymore. Help me out friends. Thanks. ,Completely dead? Do the lights come on with the key? If not, Then you either have a blown fuse or bad battery connection. A loose connection will cause problems like you describe. New battery or not, I would remove the cables, reinstall to make sure. Is the battery charged? Maybe you have a bad charging system or fuse. A 2006 shouldn't have needed a new battery unless you (or someone lese) left the lights on and totally drained it. My last battery lasted 7 years. Check the electrolyte level in the battery if it isn't a sealed one. Add distilled water if it is low.,,,

'06 vtx 1300 c : engine dies when put into gear

You have one of two things going on. (1) You need to check the kick stand switch, your bike thinks the kick stand is still down. It may have been loosened out of adjustment by vibration. If the kick stand switch is out of whack, it will restart as long as the clutch in pulled in. But as soon as you try to let out the clutch it will kill the engine, if it is in gear. (2) Next problem could be, you need to loosen up the clutch cable a little bit, The clutch control on the handle bar has a screw type of adjuster (clutch cable passes through it ), try loosening it till it's easy for you to move the bike without the engine shutting off. Hope it helps and comment if you need more clarification.

Yamaha YP250R X-MAX -2008 overheating.

Howdy: If the air temp is hot and raining the engine will heat up somwhat but not to the hot level. There is a temp sensor in the radiator system (refer to your manual) that may be stuck. Do a flush and pour in new coolant. Also when engine is cold undo the radiator cap and see if the coolant starts to move as the engine warms up. If not water pump rotor may be loose or broken and not pushing the coolant thru the engine. Try it - Good luck and ride safe - Doug

My 05 r1 temp gauge says high but it hasnt been started for 2 days. it also wont start i got a new battery but it still wont go

Sounds like the temp sending unit went bad and when they do it wont let the bike start cause if it goes bad while riding and the temperature goes up the computer shuts the bike down before you over heat the engine and trash it. Try disconnecting the battery and reconnect it after you replace the Temp sending unit.

Brake dust removal

long-armed brush is usually the best way scrub off brake dust and dirt. Apply a wheel cleaner first and let it settle before scrubbing it off.

Suspension - winter storage

If your motorcycle has a center stand use it for long term storage. If you're not riding for several weeks and don't have a center stand you may want to consider carefully propping up the bike using blocks. Don't do more harm than good by dropping your bike while attempting to prop it up! If done correctly lifting your motorcycle will alleviate stress on the suspension and tires. Inflate your tires to the maximum recommended pressure will maintain their shape, since cooling temperatures will make the pressurized air contract. If the ground might potentially freeze, try to keep the tires off the ground using wood blocks.,,,

Medium Hard Pack). In general you tyre pressure should vary between 12 - 16psi depending on ground condition's. The softer the terrain is the less pressure you put in your tyres, for example, muddy condition's would require a tyre pressure of about 12 - 13psi, hard pack would require about 13 - 15psi and even a little harder if its rocky. You have to be careful on rocky surfaces though because the harder your tyre the more the rocks will have a marble effect on you. If you don't want to be messing around with tyre pressures all the time and want a happy medium, I would suggest running 13psi.,,,

Carb adjustment

it started running rough again. I checked the plugs and they are black already. To me this means the carb is running rich but I don't know which screw to turn to lean the mix. I'm hoping that will fix the problem. Anyone know what I should do and if it might be another problem?Do a compression check. If you got fuel air and spark then the only thing you are lacking is compression. That is if the fuel to air ratio is correct. Im not sure about the carbs on that bike so cant help you with the adjustment.,,,
