you don't have a centerstand so you'll need a racestand or ATV jack to raise your bike up off the floor..Disconnect rear brake linkage, unbolt and remove axle, roll tire forward a couple inches and remove chain from rr sprocket, have tire fixed or replaced..reinstall is opposite of removal...Good Luck to you friend....Tim

The seal under the dirt seal on the fork was leaking when I picked the bike up from the owner. left the fork oil under the dirt seal kept bouncing the forks up and down for 4 days the seal got soft from the fork oil so I pulled the dirt seal up then cleaned the fork oil under it with a rag then checked it for leaks then pushed dirt seal back down in the groove and its not leaking now 200 miles and still dry.

I think the starter works off of a one-way clutch.
Go over your wiring once again. Make sure all the switches are in their correct positions.
Be sure the battery was properly charged before installation.

Not really a solution, but my 2000VLX started donig the same thing, after an hour or so or riding, except the lights DO turn on. When I finally get it started, Idles OK, but dies when given any throttle. Any ideas?

the easiest way to see the coolant level is to shine a flash light up from underneth the plastic tank, located between the the engine and rear tire. now follow the fillcap located above the right side passenger foot peg. there will be a vertical one inch slot in a chrome cover. behind this slot are two very faint lines . one low, one high about a half inch apart. I found that carefully tilting the bike to the right makes it easy to see just how low the coolant is. a really small diameter piece of tubeing jammed into a tiny funnel will prevent a mess when topping off.
