Why is there black oil coming out ov the exhaust

Hi, McKnight for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

Yamaha pw50 replaced card and throttle cables when I move lever from start to run the bike is at full throttle. why????

What is a "card" on a PW50? I have one here and have no idea what part you could mean. My guess with the throttle is that you have the cable way too tight. Check that first - it is quite touchy, since the idel is also st with the cable tension on some earlier models.

I have a 2010 V7 Guzzi. Great bike except the kickstand falls down while driving which opens a safety kill switch. I brought it back once and the owner of the shop traded it out with another kickstand from...

At this age it should still be under warranty, and even if it isn't, it is strange that it fails after being serviced. Ring the service place/dealer and ask them what they did to it as it was fine before they serviced it. That should make them collect the bike and fix it for you.

Good Luck

hi, yes this is correct, you will have to buy a key from honda and have them re code the key for you, you will have to have the bike pluged in to a diagnosic machine for recodeing at a dealership

Stand switch

Sound like the sidestand switch. Follow the wires from the switch to where they can be unplugged, and jumper together the ends on the bike side, not the stand side, this should over-ride the switch to see if it fixes the problem. If it does, the switch is bad.

Backfiring and seems to be struggling getting fuel

check to make sure your plugs arent fouled. the last bike i had did that to me, fine in the morning and when i went to leave for work in the afternoon the bike ran like **** for a few seconds and shut off. i took the bike back to where i bought it and they replaced the plugs. ran fine after that.
