Question about 2003 KTM EXC 200

Seat bouncing. does it really work?

At my house my track is being redesigned but it still has some jumps that are meant for small minibikes. One section has a single going right into two more singles. the gap between the last two singles is about 30 to 35 feet. I think I can clear it if I seat bounce but i think I am not doing it right. it could be that my bike doesn't have enough torque.

You bike has plenty power for seat bouncing in fact under certain conditions you can seat bounce with the throttle completely off. Ok so to start don't try it on your double find a little bump or hill that you can catch some minor air on in first gear, that doesn't have too steep of a face. Use first gear, get your rpms right in the best power range, as you approach the bump stay seated right in the middle, right when you hit the face pin it wide open, the bike will throw you off the seat and you'll catch air. Now this part might seem weird, but the farther back you sit the more forward it'll throw ya in the air and sitting more forward throws you straight up and the bike gets nose high. Practice your way up through the higher gears. Experiment have fun and BE CAREFUL! ,,,

Will other seats fit without too many modifications

Almost ALL bikes have different size seats because the gas tanks are different ... so much so that it is really not worth checking ... but there should be LOTS of aftermarket seats available. Corbin is the stiffest at first but will break in after a few million miles ... or less. If you need to know about the others and want prices, email me back and I might be able to track down some great possibilities. Used to be a dealer years ago and still know where everyone hides and would be happy to help.

I have a 2006 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 . I somehow have, when replacing the seat , gotten the seat latch jammed. Now, turning the key does not release the seat latch and I cannot get the key out of the seat...

you may have to get a little forcefull with it , get a friend to bounce up and down on the seat while you try the lock, be carefull to not force the key too much as they are only brass and snap off easily. this has worked very well for me in the past.

How can i jump start my vmax ? i cant seem to get the seat out!

taking the seat of a vmax is really easy. open the seat like your gonna full the gas tank, on both sides is a plastic piece coming from the seat. on nut on each side comes out and the seat lifts back and up. if your talking about just starting with a battery cable you can just reach the battery cables with the seat off. if your talking about jump starting by forward motioin and using the clutch its best to find a hill and get it going and put the bike in 2nd gear and let the clutch out. WARNING. If the bike don`t start you probably won`t be able to push it up hills, it weighs 650 lbs. but you can not jump start the bike without taking off the seat. suggestion, buy a battery tender terminal hookup for $5 and screw the two wires onto your batter and let if hang out the side of the seat, it has a cap over to keep it dry in the rain and if you buy a battery tender you will be able to jump the bike or charge the battery without taking of the seat every time. the battery tender cost from $20 to $40 it s worth the money. if your not going to ride you bike in the winter hook up the battery tender and leave the battery out of the bike for the winter in a garage or basement hooked to the battery tender. cost pennys a month and save the battery life.
hope this helps

'98 Goldwing. Loss of power going up hills. Wondering if these bikes have fuel filters. The manual does not mention one at all. I am going to change the spark plugs as well to see if that helps. Can...

Yes, there is a filter on the Goldwing.
Open the fuel access door and look in and towards the right.
You will see a opaque white fuel filter
You need to remove the seat
The radio and plastic housing
There are a couple hidden small white levers in the fuel filler area that need to be unlatched to remove the radio housing.
Check out the link for a service manual of purchase on on-line it will really help with the small tabs and parts. Mike

How much air pressure for the rear shocks on a 1982 Honda Golwing GL1100

Just enough pressure that the front and rear of the motorcycle drop together , when you bounce on the seat. If the front drops first when you bounce it might wash out on a corner. If the backdrops first when you bounce on the seat , the rear will tend to skid out on a corner. Set your front and rear shocks to drop together , that is best for extreme riding conditions (you never know when an extreme riding conditions will surprise you.)

Bike dies when put into gear.

worse thing is trying to diagnose something someone else got wrong. All you can do is go online and get clymer's repair book. A book can direct you into diagnosing a problem that happened on its own but no one knows what you may have done to mess it up. Your going to have to retrace your steps if it was working before.

I have a 1999 Triumph Tiger the speedometer was bouncing and now has completely stopped working.

It sounds like the cable was kinked, which was causing the needle to jump. Now the cable has broken, so the speedo won't work at all. Replace the speedo cable....

Fuel pump?

the fuel pump for your 2000 fuel injected road king is located in the fuel tank. you will have to remove the speedometer housing, by first removing the seat, then remove the one small screw near the seat that holds the speedometer housing in place, also remove the small screw at the front of the speedometer housing and lift the housing off the tank and disconnect the wiring that goes to the back of the speedometer. there is a large oval shaped gold in appearance plate on top of the fuel tank. this plate is what the fuel pump is mounted to.
