Question about 2002 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic

1 Answer

My guess is timing

My bike feels like the motor is pulling to hard, sounds like the timing could be off. I don't have a repair manual and I don't have the money to take it to the shop. I also hear a ticking sound when I come to a stop loud at frist and then it gets quieter after a few seconds

    try to locate the fuel pump, mine is behind the frame headstock. (xvs 650) put your fingers on it and see if it is that that's ticking, you could be experiencing lack of fuel and the pump is working overtime. i cured my problem by changing the inline fuel filter.

Harley transmission slipping

Sounds like a clutch problem - the only thing that transfers drive from the engine to the rear wheel that can slip excessively is the clutch - other components can wear but not slip.

I know a huge amount of the Harley range use dry clutches not oil bath types like jap bikes.

Saying that it means its like a car clutch - these types of clutches do not like any abuse as they over heat and wear very quickly reesulting in slipping - as you are describing.

A oil bathed clutch shares the oil in the engine and has friction plates like an automatic gear box - because of the oil that can cool the clutch plates they last pretty much forever and don\'t wear from abuse.

Look at your clutch.

I am guessing that you have suffered detonation where the fuel detonates before the spark occurs placing extra load on the piston which slaps hard against the cylinder wall. It will do serious damage to the piston if left unattended.. It is normally caused from incorrect air/fuel ratio (lean) or timing out or over heating Take it to a bike shop not a general car garage as motor bikes are specialised equipment.

Kawasaki GPZ900 carburettor removal

That is a tough one, I run a Honda CBR 600RR and I have to post it and bring the motor out to work on the unit all the time. Its not really difficult but a lot better than breaking fingers and spending a lot of time puzzling pieces off your bike.
If you have the space pull it, if your cramped up somewhere then refer to the repair manual and give it your best guess. My experience says No.

Bike would not start.

If you are hearing the clicking sound that means that your starter motor's relay is trying to engage. Probably you don't have enough juice in your battery. Charge your battery very good and give it a try again.If still nothing happens then you must take out the starter motor and have it repaired. That spinning sound also suggests to take a closer look to your starter motor and your starter clutch which is located behind the stator's rotor.

I read a post of yours about a bike not running good... and it said in your answer a place to get a manual... i have a 1983 honda gl1100 interstate.... i just bought bike... don't know much but know...

Getting your Goldwing running good is probably as simple as putting on 4 new NGK brand spark plug caps (about $5) and 4 brand new spark plugs. The resisters burn out in the plug caps and make the motor sound like it needs a carburetor cleaning and a full engine rebuild. The spark plug caps simply unscrew off of the end of the wires and the new ones screw on. For good free information about your Goldwing and hard to find parts you can go to :

2003 Harley Road King....Just had the rear tire replaced and now I hear a slight whining noise. Pulled off the interstate for fuel and almost every gear "Jumps" unless I really baby the throttle....

Hmm! This is a difficult one as I can't feel the tension of the belt nor hear the sound for myself. Any time you have anything done to your machine by anyone, ALWAYS CHECK BEHIND THEM. Mechanics are only human and as such, we make mistakes just like everyone else. There is nothing different in a Harley-Davidson mechanic than any other mechanic. And, since it's you riding the bike, you have a vested interest in making sure that your bike has been repaired correctly and is safe to ride. Always go behind the mechanics and check for loose bolts and things that are not done correctly within the scope of your knowledge of your machine. If you don't know anything about your bike, at least look for obvious things that were overlooked. It's for your own safety.

As for the noise. Check the alignment of the rear wheel in the swingarm. Make sure the inside edge of the final drive belt is not rubbing the edge of the tire. Check the tension of the drive belt. Most drive belts feet "too tight" to the average person in that they don't feel like they've got any slack at all when you check them. It should have something like a 1/2" deviation with a 10 pound force applied to the belt. Usually, a loose belt will "chirp" when you change gears. Sight along the top of belt looking toward the engine and see if it looks straight. Check the adjuster screws to see if they're the same length. Basically, look for obvious things wrong. If you're still in doubt, take it to a shop and have them look at it. On several occasions, I've seen people load their bikes too heavily and the bike sits down in the rear end. This caused the top of the final drive belt to rub the underside of the inner primary just below the starter and make a whining noise. All I did was to tighten up the shocks just a bit to stop the problem. You may not can see this as you must be sitting on the bike to check. Get a friend about your same size to sit on the bike or someone else to check it while you sit on the bike.

This is about all the advice that I can give you without actually putting my hands on the bike which I can't do. I wished I could have helped more. Always remember, it's your fanny riding that bike and if something isn't done correctly, it's your fanny that may get skinned up. You don't have to be a high-dollar mechanic to notice things that just don't look right on your bike but if you don't look, you won't see them. NEVER trust any mechanic to not make a mistake. I've been doing this for years and I still make mistakes from time to time but usually I catch them before the owner gets the machine back. See, I learned to check behind myself years ago.

How do I be replaced the rods in my 1986 honda nighthawk 700

Hate to sound like a smart $$s but if you have got to ask then you don't have the tools or mechanical knowledge to do the work. If you feel the rods need replacing I'd strongly suggest ether finding a motorcycle mechanic or purchase another bike. This is not a simple repair and it's costly certainly it will cost more to repair then what you could get another bike for
