Does the bike have a sidestand switch that cuts the power if the stand is left down? If it does, disconnect it and temporarily join the ends together and try starting....

SOURCE: I just bought a 2005 royal star venture. It's a

Hi: It is "normal" for most royal star ventures to have a loud chirping sort of gear noise at certain rpms. Mine does it in every gear. It is especially noticable at between 100 and 110 kms/hr. If you increase or decrease the speed it gest better. This noise is because of the straight cut gears. Yamaha does this for strength and reliability but it is annoying. You can read more about it on the Venture owners sites such as The Venturers or VentureRider.org. It is nothing to worry about but I know it is annoying. Mine does it too. The RSV has a few quirks like this. nothing serious but somewhat annoying. THe other common thing is that the speedometer reads about 7% high. Mine does and many do. However, it is a very smooth, and very reliable bike. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: 1st gear hard to find

Most BMW's I've had dealings with are prone to this. If you start the bike up, then let the clutch lever out, then as you pull in the clutch lever, engage first gear. The transmission gears will be spinning slightly and mesh much easier this way. If you have the clutch pulled in the gears arent spinning. As the tranny heats up the oil thins a bit and allows the gears to move easier, allowing easier shifts.

SOURCE: engine noise on left side

1. You can purchase a gear set that eliminates the cam chains and shoes. Harley-Davidson should, in my opinion, make this a standard fix and not an after the fact option. If you can't afford to install the gear system, then you need to disassemble and inspect the inner and outer shoes every 15,000 miles or risk total engine failure. The shoe material can also clog the oil pump totally destroying the engine. There are plenty of motorcycle magazines explaining how to fix this nagging problem.

2. Overheating: Harley-Davidson engines run hot. The 88 cubic inch engine ran hot and at the high limits and the 96 cubic inch engine runs hotter yet which is not good for the engine. The 110 cubic inch engines run exceedingly hotter and so much so a class-action law suit was filed against Harley-Davidson from riders being burned from the engine heat (mostly from the rear cylinder near the rider's thighs). Heat burns to the skin is not the only problem as heat is an engine killer and the hotter these big air-cooled V-twins run reliability falls drastically. Don't expect engine longevity with a 103 or 110 cubic inch air-cooled V-twin such as the Harley-Davidson design. Clean synthetic engine oil and a large external engine oil cooler is a must have accessory, but it only helps engine cooling not cure these serious excessive heat problems that self-destructs the engine.
Thanks

My yamaha ttr-125 making noise when in 2nd gear but no noise in any other gears


I agree it is a broken tooth on second gear in the trasmission. You will need the trans. rebuilt before riding further or you will jam the transmission, Break more parts, & possibly break the main engine cases. DO NOT RIDE !

Maybe not your answer but.If the bike has sat around for a while,the clutch plates can stick together.Not all,but some.This makes gear selection hard and as you describe,once things warm up,it gets better.When I said about sitting around,I meant for a period of a few months or so at one time.Hope this helps

Yzf r1 03 gear prob or?!


Sounds like bent shifting fork which is expensive. If you are not the 1st owner then you don't know how previous owner treated bike. Often sportbikes are rode hard and banged into 2nd gear which can eventually cause tranny problems like bent shifter fork. First look down by the shifter pedal and inspect that it is fastened securely to the shift rod coming out of the engine/trans case. There is a single bolt that holds the shift lever on a splined shaft and can come loose and cause problems.
If that is ok then find a local mechanic you trust....Good Luck !
