My headlight wont come on 1980 yamaha rs 500


Check fuses and bulb, if none, check wiring. It might not be as simple as seek and replace. It is a 1980 you know.

I was told the CDI unit on a 1980 Honda CX 500 is bad... how do I test it to be sure? Thanks


Takes special equipment to test the CDI ... does your bike start? run? if not ... there is that possibility that who ever told you it is bad is correct.

2001 electra glide classic rear shock length


Harley usually uses a 12.5" shock but that could change from model to model and they don't list "shock length" in their specs. The best thing you could do it go to a dealer or find someone that has a stock bike and measure the front end height and rear shock length. Sorry but that's all I got.

Good Luck

ANY WAY TO LOWER THE SEAT HIEGHT


The most effective way to lower the seat height is to put shorter shocks on it. Some aftermarket suppliers have lowering kits for bikes but then again, they change the length of the shocks also. Check the length of your shocks and look on ebay. Ask a lot of questions about the chrome finish, the length, size of the mounting bolts. Check a few of the vendors to see if they sell a shock specifically for your bike that will lower it.
I recommend you do a google search for forums for your particular brand of bike and ask on there. There is a wealth of free information on motorcycle forums.

06 Softail (standard) rear shocks…


Pick up an H-D service manual for your bike too. It'll get you through the unknown. And as for a lot of the special tools recommended (like the offset socket tool for the Softail shock rear bolts), I found that you can get by with standard hand tools most of the time. And if you run into any probs, just post up and we'll help. As RTD says, go for it.

Lowering FLHTCUI


I lowered my 06 Street Glide 1 1/4" in the rear, using a bolt on, adjustable lowering kit that I purchased on Ebay. $100.00, including shipping. Took less than 30 minutes to install, and can be returned to stock, in about the same amount of time. It lowers Touring bikes either 1 1/4", or 2 1/2". If you ride 2-up, you'll have to keep some more air pressure in the rear shocks, to prevent bottoming. The SG shocks are 12" stock. The FLHTC/U has 13" shocks stock. The brand of lowering kit is R.U.B. Excellent quality, quick delivery. Hope this helps.
