That is the adjustment for your speed control. Tighten it to the right and it will hold your throttle in place at the speed you are going. I would advise not using it however as it can delay your stopping distance in an emergency. It is not nearly as safe as cruise control which comes on some Harley Davidson Touring Models .

Hi i would like to know how to add water for the honda goldwing 1500 gl i want to know what to remove to find the place were to add water

Sit on the bike and turn the handle bars to the right. Look on the left hand side where the left handle bar was and you will see a rubber cap. Remove the left plastic cover panel around it and remove the rubber cap. It has hash marks to measure by. Ad 50/50 antifreeze till you see it half way up the hash marks. Be sure the rubber cap snaps back on tightly all the way around.If you ever need access to the radiator cap it is on the right side under that plactic cover. But you can add coolant on the left side. This is the upper level resivoir.

First time driving a 1967 Triumph motorcycle coming up. Would like advice on where stuff is like clutch, brake, shifter and how to shift -- where the gears are. Thanks. Art

Hi Art! First of all, congratulations on your 1967 Triumph... that's a beauty!!!

Basic things to know before riding a bike is it's parts.

Clutch is the lever you press on the left side of the handle bar.

Front disc brake is the lever on the right side of the handle bar.

Shifter is the one you're stepping on when shifting gears and is located on the left side of the engine if you're on it.

Now, you must first know if the gear is on Neutral by pushing the bike before starting the bike. If it's hard to push then the shifter is not in neutral. Press the shifter by your left foot until you are able to push the bike with ease.

Hop on the bike and start the engine. Most bikes have ignition starters but if your bike doesn't have one, then you have to turn keys to on position and use the kick starter. Rev the engine by pressing the throttle grip on the right side of the handle bar.

Engine is running and in idle position. Press the Clutch lever (left hand) and press the shifter once (left foot) DO NOT RELEASE THE CLUTCH YET!!!

Slowly press the throttle with your right hand until you hear or feel the engine purr...

Slowly release the clutch (left hand) until you fell the bike move forward.

If I am not mistaken, shifting the gears of the triumph is 1-down and 4 up...

Every time you shift gears, you need to press the clutch to release the gears.

Hope you'll have fun!!!

Ride safe my friend!!!

Don't forget your riding gears!!!

Right hand handle bar has slight movement

Are the forks bent in any way? slight dents will cause bars to not tighten as will over tightening the allens on the bars. Remove the allen clamps that go around the fork and check for damage. If you need to remove be careful as to how you remove throddle cable and grip. Allens or screws and label. Then you can raise the bar over the end of fork. My bet would be a striped tread or dent and not the drop bar.

How to tighten handlebars on a harley davidson 1997 road king?

If it is the clamp that is loose, remove the riser cover and tighen the 4 allem head screws. If it is the riser base that is loose, turn your bars to the left, look under the triple tree and you will see a large bolt head, one one each side, use a socket and tighten, swing the bars to the right, and repeat on the other side.
Happy riding!

Engine revs when turning right.

Wrong size throttle cable or misadjustment. At the handlebars, I've seen some set that acceleration causes a pull of the cable, I've also seen bikes set to push the cable. Confirm this is set correctly, and that your mechanic used the correct legnth of cable.

How to change handle bars

Take off the screws under the stearing lock cover that says (lock unlock) if they are not philip head screws then they most likely are torx heads you can purchase a set of torx screw drivers at your local auto parts store.
