Take the seat off, then remove the right hand trim panel, there's a couple of screws under the seat and one on the side, the centre rear trim panel needs to be removed as well. There's a couple of locating pegs hidden underneath which are released by pulling the trim gently sideways. Once the trim is off you'll see the battery box with two 10mm locating bolts, the battery comes out to the side.  It's worth getting the remote cables from a battery Optimiser kit fitted when you refit the battery as the terminals can't be reached with the trims in situ.

My bike's air filter has gone bad. I wanted to explore the working of air filter before installing it myself. Does anyone knows good article/website where-in I can explore more about the working o

An air filter is just a sieve to remove any particles that may cause damage to the engine. They don't go bad they just get blocked by all the bits they filter out. If you want to know how your bike works and what each bit does, you should buy the relevant manual from a company such as Haynes or Clymer. These also contain the instructions on just about anything you might want to do to look after your bike- also the general bike maintenance instructions will apply to all bikes.

Yamaha TZR 125 does not have power at low revs.

Hi, Marcel if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly then stall, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition and in the future pour in a bottle of fuel stabilizer and injector cleaner for you FI folks at least 2 times a year and before storage.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or more, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper "LOAD" test on the battery and replace as necessary, you may have 12.5 volts or better but little or zero amps, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and the battery needs to be replaced.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove and inspect your air cleaner paper elements that are not oil soaked can be cleaned with a soft brush and low pressure compressed air, oil soaked elements must be replaced. Gause mesh and foam elements can be cleaned by soaking them in a container big enough to completely cover them with a solution of 1 gallon of water and 1 oz. of Dawn dishwashing liquid for small and medium size elements, for monster size double the formula and let soak for at least one hour then rinse with warm water shake off excess and let air dry, "WARNING" do not use compressed air as this will embed micro-sized dirt and road grime and destroy the mesh pattern and stretch foam elements out of shape just squeeze it like a sponge and let air dry, use a fan if you're in a hurry. When completely dry spray a very fine mist of air filter oil evenly around the whole element.
6. Remove the carburetors, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove, clean, and inspect fuel and vacuum lines and replace as necessary.
8. Replace spark plugs with new ones and check for spark.

Hi please kill me now ! I have my bike apart and can not figure out how to get the battery out of this bike. Is there any where I can get detailed instructions/ with diagrams? The instruction manual sucks...

Typically, one removes the seat to get access to the battery. I don't know what size the bolts are or exactly where they are located. If you can find them, remove them and expect to see the battery.

Cant install bell double bike rack on my chevy camaro


I contacted Bell Sports and complained about the lack of downloadable manuals. They said they are in the process of developing the website which will provide them.

It has some basic stuff about helmets and tire changing right now. Stay tuned and check it once in a while.

In the meantime, they sent me the manual for the Doubleback/Tripleback Car Rack in English since that was the one I used as an example.

If you post your email to this solution I will be notified and will send it to you.

it's kinda tricky to put the bracket on, but it should have come with a weird bracket that kinda looks like a brake caliper, the bracket goes around the back of your frame, as opposed to attaching to the wheel pin like the inStep trailers...if you don't have the bracket, i dont know what you can do

Battery missing for exercise bike

I have a Schwinn airdyne (model AD-3) that uses a button type battery in the count-down timer, which is above the work load indicator or the 'speedometer'. According to the manual I was given with the bike, it utilizes a 1 1/2 volt watch - type battery (LR44, A 76 or equivalent).

Hope this helps.
