My MT-03 is vibrating an making a bit of a rattling sound

This is since I fitted hot grips which meant removng the fuel tank to get to the battery. There is now a noticable vibration (especially around 4000-5000rpm) and a rattling noise. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi Mattandem

Best approach to working out these sorts of problems is to pull the tank off again,and carefully check all your work. Particularly any new wiring, or wiring that you may have disturbed whilst installing the grips. Check also that all of the rubber mounts for the tank are correctly in place. Cabling has a tendency to rattle quite loudly against any and everything on your bike. Vinyl insulation tape lagging new cables to existing looms is an effective way to stop them rattling, and strategically placed cable ties, particularly about the front end and headlamp fitting. Good luck with the de-rattle. Let me know how you got on. Cheers

I have AIWA NSX-RV85. The sub-woofer surround tore leaving just the cone. When I play, The woofer just makes a rattling sound coming out of vibrating cone.Any advise on how to fix my speakers.Thanks

Refit the rubber, you can find itbon eBay, its called reconing actually in this case the cone is the inlybpart wich you dont want to replace... The rattling is beingproducer due to the fact the rubber normally holds the cone ibto positionering over the coils. This rattling is not good can defect your cone. So dont play it roll you got a new rubber fitted!

Fuel pump on vg holen ute not working. Relays and fuses fine I'm thinking its packed it in. How can u find out for sure without geting stuck in and probally have to drop the tank??? Thanks. Ryan

When I have to get at a fuel pump in the tank off my car . I take out the back seat and cut an access panel , so I do not have to drop the tank. You can also cut and access panel if it is in the truck of the vehicle .
Drill a couple of holes carefully ( make a stop on the drill bit by using a piece of pipe ; make sure that the end of the drill bit is sticking out just enough to go through the tin and not hit the tank . I use a vise grips to locked on to the pipe with my left hand and drill in the right . ) , take a tin snips to cut the hole to the size you need , then pull the pump and replace it . then take a piece of sheet metal and a tube of seam sealer ( That you buy at auto parts store ) . Make sure you use the seam sealer to keep the exhaust out !!!!! Good luck and Remember that once you have the hole , you can check the wires at the fuel pump ; to see that it is getting power when you turn the key , before pulling the pump .

Hi, I have a 2009 MT-03, the engine management like came on and the neutral light stays on even when I am in gear.

Hi, Anonymous it should be noted that the reasons EFI lights constant or flashing, will or will not start, turns over or not conditions varies from the year, make, and model and you should always refer to your owners/service manual for proper diagnostic procedures. It should also be noted that any type of prior work or event IE: adding accessories, electrical curiosity/adventures, laying bike down/crashes, rainstorms/bike washings just before EFI light issues started can be significant hints/aids into tracking down the gremlin, also carry the appropriate jumper wire to access fault codes to reduce the risk of being stranded or towed, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty Fuel Pump, fuse or system relay switch.
2. Battery starting to fail due to old age/damage, perform a load test.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Faulty switches/sensors: run/off, ignition, clutch lever, neutral, side stand, tip over, fuel, and or their connections.
5. Broken wire or worn insulation exposing wire to a ground situation especially inside wire harness at tight bends around fairing brackets, under dash panels, under fuel tanks over cylinder heads etc. Many harnesses are open on the ends that will allow water to enter and accumulate at v-bends.
Dielectric grease and contact cleaner are your best friends for wire/cable/harness connectors, look for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets. For more information about your issue please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Replace fuel line in husqvarna 141 chain saw

The fuel line on the 141 is very small and wasn't really meant to be replaced for some reason, as it is a pinch fit. Buy the smallest fuel line you can, usually 1/8th OD inch fuel line. Remove the air-filter and the carburetor. You will need to drill out the
current hole a little bit, so go slowly. As soon as the new fuel line will fit _tightly_ insert the line. You will have to remove the hand-bar and the
anti-vibration bolts to separate the motor mount portion from the gas tank which is part of the hand grip.

Apply some gasoline proof gasket sealant to the space between the gap, else you will have a gas leak from the tank sooner or later.

Reassemble the grip and motor sections back together and let the sealant dry for a day or so. Put the carb and air filter back on and attach the fuel line to the carb and the other end to the fuel filter in the gas tank.

Where is the fuel pump on a 2000 taurus

inside the gas tank. you will have to remove the tank to gain access to it. Some of the tanks have a drain valve on the bottom. If you do have the drain valve, it would be easier to drain the fuel before removng the tank unless it is near empty already.

If you are unsure your pump is bad, have someone turn on the key and listen by the tank for a short 1 -2 second humming sound. If you hear the sound your pump is working, if nothing check your fuses first otherwise the pump is bad.

How do I release the fuel line from the tank on an MT-03. I have removed the clip - its just the actual fuel line to break now but I can't see how it works properly so I can't release it.

Check the owners manual you should have got with the bike, if not check ebay there are loads available.

You will need to remove the two electrical connectors as well as the two pipes, one the overflow, the other the breather. Best to remove these first.

There is a safety cover that needs to be removed before you can release the main fuel plug. Once the cover clip is removed, the main clip needs to be squeezed at the release point (you should see the depress points), and pulled gently to remove. Best you have a friend hold the tank while you do this.

I found this to be a problem when I first removed the tank off my mt-03.

My MT-03 is vibrating an making a bit of a tattling sound

Hi mattandem

I have replied already to your other post... didn't see this one... not sure what the vibration through the peg could be caused by as they mount directly to the frame. The frame being a substantial structure to the bike means that the vibration is being created anywhere on the frame,and you are feeling it in your foot peg. The only thing that comes to mind is that perhaps one of the tank mounting rubbers is not seated properly, or inadvertently rolled away on the garage floor. This is what I would be checking for.
