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.

1999 honda vfr 800. Had a full service done on bike all fluids filters plugs etc. Bike starts ok but as soon as i turn the throttle bike dies no fault codes standing on bike


Hi, Walter you have fuel delivery issues probably carbs I hear your gas tank is begging for a can of Sea Foam 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 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.
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 better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, 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.

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.

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.

1999 suzuki 800 intruder. I need instructions on how to remove the battery.


Removing the two bolts on either side of the bike, in front of the rear wheel will open the battery box door (You must look under the bike and locate the battery box). Locate the battery terminal bolts on either side of the frame. Remove the positive side first. The battery should then slide down from the box. Make sure you glue the nuts to the new battery terminal. Put the positive terminal back on the battery first to avoid a short when installing the new battery.

Aprilia RS125 Help


Ive just bought a 2000 model RS 125 but my knowledge of bikes is pretty limited :/ The bike was running fine for a week with no problems at all but then the electric start doesnt want to work. I went through the manual and tried a couple of things (recharged the battery checked fuses cleaned spark plug etc) After I did this I still didnt have any luck but the electric start sounded abit more promising. I gave it another couple of goes and it started but when I let the throttle off the engine died and Im back to square 1. Anyone have any ideas about what could be the problem? I was talking to a friend and he said that I need to make sure that there is power going to the motor. He mentioned using a voltmeter to see if there was power going into it. He said that if there was no power then it would need a new electric start but if there was then I would need something else but I cant think what? Does this sound right to anyone?ou'll be able to tell if the ignition system is okay if there's a spark at the plug against the head with it removed when you kick it over (is there a kickstart lever on the bike?)/spin it over with the electric start. You could try bump starting it to see whether its just the electric starter motor or the ignition system itself that's the problem. If you do have a good spark then the bike should start with a bump push start/off the kicker (does it have one?)then you'll know whether the starter is the problem. My bike's kick-start only though so I'm no expert on starting Aprilia RS125's...Good luck. Don't waste money on new parts until you're sure of the problem though.,,,
