Sounds like you might need a valve adjustment. Just for giggles, also check to see that there aren't any air leaks before or after the cyl.

When coasting the pedals keep moving so you have to continue to pedal and when peddling backwards the bike goes backwards, how do I stop this?

I assume that this bike normally has a coaster brake. If so, your coaster brake mechanism (inside the hub of the drive wheel) is jammed or broken. You will have to disasssemble the wheel hub. This bike might have a coaster brake on both rear wheels or maybe just one side. Lift both rear wheels off the ground and turn them independently to determine which side the problem is on.

I took the brakes off my bike and now the bike won't steer right and I don't know if it's because the bolts not tight enough or I messed something up

Best thing to do is too take into a bike shop and have them take a look. It really isn't possible to tell you what is wrong and how to fix it without seeing it.

Taking the brakes off your bike should have no effect on steering as the two things are not connected, so your assessment that you messed things up sounds pretty accurate.

Whenever I ride my 26"

The most likely cause of this problem is that the back wheel is not in straight. If you loosen the 2 nuts that hold the wheel in you'll be able to align it with the chain. When you stand behind the bike the wheel and chain should be parallell.

You should also keep the chain oiled as it helps to stop it hopping across the gears.

Times when im stopping i hear a viberation from the fairing . but its hard to tell where its comming sure its not the brakes.

I have always been annoyed with this on my 08 FLHX. Honestly, I fixed alot of the problem zip tying all the harnessess in the fairing. Also, the bottom of the radio unit sits almost right on top of the bolts for the handle bar clamps. I removed the radio unit and put a strip of 1/8 thick rubber on the bottom of it. That keeps the bottom of the metal radio housing.

You steering head might need to be lubed also...mine had none in it when I got it. Put the bike on a bike jack and lift the tires off the ground. Turn the handle bars to full right position and release. Watch the bars swing left to right. If it swings back and forth, more than 4 times, before coming to a stop in the straight position, it might need to be tightened a bit.

You are never going to get rid of it all...I have tried. But you can get most of it. Turning the radio up really loud helps this problem too!

Im looking for a wiring diagram for the brake lights. 93 GMC Jimmy. The brake lights stopped working and i have tryed the fuse, bulbs and the brake switch. What else could it be? Thanks 93 Jimmy...

What happens if you have the key in the run position, you foot on the brake and you wiggle, pull, push the turn signal lever. Also try turning the hazards on and off slowly. All while keeping an eye on the brake lights to see if they come on momentarily.

I'm pretty sure the brake and turn signal share the same bulb If so we know that the bulb and the wiring from the switch to the bulb is fine. If there is power into and out of the brake switch than it is reasonable to assume that the problem is in between the brake switch and the turn signal switch if not the switch itself.

Back break not working wen u push it down

Keep on bleeding until all air bubbles goes out but never-never let your brake fluid reservoir empty, as you bleed the brake, fill the reservoir immediatel to full level. Do you know how to bleed properly? Make sure the engine and key is is off position. Pump the foot brake 6 or 7 times until it becomes hard, keep pedal down, open brake nipple relase fluid as soon it stop spurting, close tight and repeat process until all air bubbles are out from system, fill brake fluid reservoir. As the bike is on centre stand,hand turn the back wheel and press foot brake it should stop it from turning which means it is now working properly. Good enough advise?
