Question about 2007 Suzuki GSX-R 1000

I have no front brakes

Ok i got station in Italy and when i packed up my bike in the crate everything work perfect. I get my bike in italy put the oil and gas and coolant back in and now i don't have any front brakes. So me and my friend bleed the brakes on both sides and you can pump it up enough that it will hold pressure and there is not leak anywhere but as soon as you roll forward there gone again. So recap i can't find a leak anywhere, already bleed the brakes so the fluid is a little low now but, still no front brakes. I am new to sport bikes so Any ideas would be appreciated

First of all. Thank you for your service our country appreciates your dedication and your families support.

Bleeding the system is a series of points from front right to back left. then To front left and back right.

then repeat. 2x. After that bleed brake system at the front then the back. over and over. NO disruption of a steady stream, this is a totally sealed system. 0 air. that means if its not perfect its wrong.
The factory actually primes the lines with vacume from the caliper end. keep that in mind.

**Buy a nice new measuring cup and reuse all Fluid.
Dot4 is not cheap.

Please check caliper seals for the "wet" look around the boot and brake line inputs.

This should work. its not uncommon

The only other thing is the Brake reseviour could be sucking in air. Check for capt tightness. Gromet seal. and and the inner plunger not to be stuck in the down position. pluger is a diaphram. not an actual pin...
amazing ride man.. last of the best Wear a helmet plz.

Where do i fill brake fluid on my 2011 suzuki tu250? I disassembled everything from the bars and when I put them back on and everything back together, everything worked except the front brake has no...

Attached to the front brake handel is a black box type reservoir with two screws in it. Make sure the reservoir is level remove the screws and the cover then inside is a rubber boot and plastic piece make sure they go in the same way they came out. Except the rubber piece will be collapsed into its self when the oil is replaced. Fill the reservoir with DOT4 brake fluid and re bleed the front brakes to be sure you got all the air out of the system. you do not have to replace the cover to bleed the brakes just be careful not to get any brake fluid on the painted surfaces of the bike it is not good for the paint.

I have a sport 50 Harley. The gas cap says 3 cap fulls of SAE 40 per US gallon. Is this correct?

What you have is one of the Aermacchi Harleys. These small bikes were built in Italy between 1965 and 1967, I think on this model. The Aermacchi bikes of all models were made between 1961 and 1978. Since two stroke oil has changed considerably since then, if you mix it to that specification, you'll probably be too rich. Your prime source of information for these machines will be here. These guys are a good bunch and they can tell you everything you need to know about your little bike. For parts, you can go to MotoItalia or Charleston Custom Cycles. They both have sites on the web as far as I know.

Good Luck

I have a 1981 650 gs650 motorcycle I have cleaned the carbs 3 times installed new needle and seat. air cleaner is clean. valves were checked for clearence have good fire but it is still running rich and...

The carbs have to be jetted. If they are the slightest bit out, it will backfire, burn your eyeballs from the fumes and skip and sput like crazy. I found the Dyna-Flow adjustable kits work great, the should have one for your bike, I found one on ebay, because after going to Italy (Ducati) and getting the factory setting jets put back in the bike, it still wouldn't run. I took those carbs off 20 times, the first time took me an hour, I can get them off there now in 10 minuets. Anyway, the adjustable jets work great, it fired right up and ran perfect the first time. Still running great. I am sold. Check them out.

Our Yamaxa XS1B's speedometer has been revised by an

I can't give you reliable instruction on opening it up. Have you thought about asking your Bologna speedometer man for suggestions? How about contacting Yamaha or the manufacturer of the speedometer if it is not Yamaha who makes it.? As i said, the best I can tell you is to be careful when you disassemble it. Any chance the speedometer could be replaced with a newer Yamaha speedometer that has a Km/h dial? Your original posting is still on FixYa. You might want to re-post to get the issue back on the front page. Just copy original posting then paste it into the new posting.

How do you change front brake pad on a kmx

same way you do on a car. remove the wheel, take the caliper unit off and replace the pads.

1) Put the bike on a milk crate or a bike jack stand
2) Take off the front wheel, the axle comes off like a large bolt
3) Remove the caliper unit from the disc, probably allen wrenches will be needed or at least metric wrenches
4) The pads will come out with a little of force and removing the retaining springs. Take note of how the springs are attached to the pads and caliper unit. You will have to re-assemble the caliper and pads and springs
5) use a C-Clamp to push the piston back into the caliper unit. After you get the caliper unit off of the bike you'll see what I mean. Probably a 6" c-Clamp will work
6) Check the disc for wear and tear. You might have to replace the disc.
7) put new pads into the caliper and attach springs. Take your time, putting the pad springs back on may be tougher than you think.
8) reassemble the caliper and the disc.
9) Put the wheel back on and squeeze the brake. Remember you used a c-clamp to push the piston all the way back into the caliper unit. Squeezing the brake will force the piston out and push the pads against the disc.
10) Time to TEST DRIVE the bike. Go slow and check for wobble or uneven braking. If needed retighten the caliper unit, just don't over tighten the caliper and strip the threads.

Hope this helps....

Need to add a seat but $1200 is not reasonable. Anybody done it custom?

Google " motorcycle salvage kawasaki ". Chances are you can find a seat there and pay a whole lot less.

Oil and break in

usually what you want to follow is the recommendation from the manual. like if it is new, you have to put in 1.2 liters, then for change oils, 1.0 liters.

but since you have drained it for shipping, it is strongly suggested that you go for the factiry default volume to make sure all parts ar soaked.

Distinct front fork knocking

Put the bike on a stand and grasp the forks at the bottom and push in / out to see if there is any play also check pads in the caliper and brake hose knocking against fork leg etc. if you dont have a stand (or a milk crate) you can sometimes feel play by rocking the bike back and forwards with the front brake applied. Other things to check are that the front tyre pressure isnt too hard .. and I would suggest you bleed the air out of the forks via the top philips screw ,
