Make sure when you check tire pressure you also check the spare tire. It also has a pressure sensor on it.

Can you adjust the front forks on a 2001 suzuki intruder Vl 800 to keep the finder from ridding so low to tire


Having looked at a picture of your bike I would think the answer is no. The basic facts are: - 1. The fender is fitted to the fork sliders.
2. The fender is quite deep in its design.
The normal way would be to adjust the fenders fixing points to raise it away from the tire. The problem with this is there is not a lot of room between the fender and the front frame down tube. To adjust the fender upwards also will make it closer to the frame. If you brake hard and or hit a large bump/pothole etc you risk the fender hitting the frame and you will probably lose control and badly damage the fender. I would get advice from a local service shop before trying anything.

Neutral and oil light not working on 2007 street glide


Oil light switch is a normally closed unit so first off test with an ohmmeter to see if there is an open which would not complete the circuit not allow the light to work.Then check to see if there is any current to the oil switch. If there is you could jumper the wire to ground which if the light then goes on indicates that the switch is bad. If no current to the switch you will have to trace back and find out where the open in the circuit is.

There may be no oil pressure due to lack of oil or a faulty oil pump. Check the oil level and add oil if low, then restart the engine and verify that the oil pressure light goes off and that the oil gauge indicates pressure. If the problem still exists you will need to check out the oil pump.

If the gauge shows oil pressure but the light does not go off it may be that the contacts in the pressure sending unit are not opening to break the circuit and shut off the light.
If the gauge does not show pressure it may be that the variable resistor in the sender is shorted to ground.



Locate the oil pressure sending unit on the front right side of the crankcase and verify that the electrical connector is properly connected to the sending unit. If the oil pressure gauge indicates pressure but the low oil pressure light remains on remove the electrical connector from the oil pressure sending unit and using a small jumper wire place one end on the indicator lamp terminal (the closest to the latch on the sending unit) and place the other end on the crankcase. The Ohmmeter must read less than one ohm. THEN start the engine and run at a fast idle. The ohmmeter must read infinity (OL). Replace the sending unit if the above meter readings are not obtained.

If the low oil pressure light functions correctly, but the pressure gauge does not, remove the electrical connector from the oil pressure sending unit, turn the ignition switch to IGNITION and the gauge must read zero. Ground the (BN/GN) wire terminal to the crankcase. The gauge must read full scale (60 PSI). Replace the sending unit if the above gauge readings are obtained but if the gauge readings are not obtained, replace the pressure gauge.

If there is no power to the gauge diagnose the cause could be broken or disconnected leads to the gauge or an open gauge winding. Test by switching the ignition switch to IGNITION and verify that 12VDC is present at "+ terminal on the gauge, then with the ignition switch turned to OFF check the ground terminal for continuity to ground. Replace the gauge if 12VDC is present and ground terminal is grounded. If 12VDC is not present, trace wiring until disconnected or broken wire is found and repair as necessary. If ground terminal is not grounded, repeat the procedure used to trace a for 12VDC lead.

The power lead fro the oil pressure and neutral switch is an orange wire on pin 6 of a 10 pin connector.

Air pressure frunt and back


Hi Anonymous, tire pressures are stamped on the sidewall of the tire, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. For more information about your issue please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Honda 900 Custom CB 1982,if there should a problem with the OIL PRESSURE what alarm indicator will there, a light a buzz and where is this indicator located at. This not a question and the AIR...


As far as i know your older bike works like my new one. Where the only indicator is a red light that comes on in the speedo. Check the oil window on the right side of your engine for oil level. What do you mean air pressure? If its the tires it will be written on the side of the tire.

Low speed wobble 3 wheel harley


Hi Mark, and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non standard equipment on the front end such asheavy radio receivers, extra lightning equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tire(s) or improper front-rear tire combination
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. Shock absorber not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing play.
9. Improper vehicle alignment.
10.Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires out of round or eccentric with hub.
13. Rims and tires out-of-true sideways.
14. Shock absorber improperly adjusted.
15. Worn engine stabilizer links.
16. Damaged rear engine isolation mounts.
17. Swing arm pivot shaft nut improperly tightened or assembled.
Good luck and have nice day

Tyre pressure for a 1981 suzuki dr250


Well,...what brand of tire does it have????. every tire is different, as you maybe know....Look at the tire, the brand should be written on the sidewall, and most tires have the recommended tire pressure written on the tire as well. If you know the brand, then contact the tire manufacturer ( if they are still in business ).
If the tires are Japanese or Chinese, then just ask your local moto shop,...they will kindly recommend the right pressure for you....If all else fails,...buy some modern tires for your bike....1981 was a long time ago!!

Tire pressure in manual is 21psi, front and 22psi for rear. Do I need to increase this for on road riding? Pressure seems low for on road riding?


Here's my take on tire pressures and when they need adjusted, I wrote this a while back for someone with a Honda African Twin, so this should help:


Manufacturer's recommendation – Short distance city riding below 100kph. Light off-road use ie. Small rocks, gravel. If the weather/road conditions vary a lot.


30% above recommended pressure – High speed road use. Long distances in warm weather on good quality roads. Go 40% if the conditions are the same but the bike is fully loaded with carriers.


15% below recommended pressure – Short distance riding in cold winter temps. Short distance on wet roads. Off-road, average gravel/rocks and some wet mud.


40% below recommended – Slow off-road riding in very loose dirt, sand, with lots of rocks. Tires will heat up quickly if the pace is picked up which will loose grip and cause accelerated wear.


60% below recommended – Very slow, loose dirt, deep sand (dunes). If tires slip on the rims you need to increase pressure.


My mantra is all about keeping a close eye on tire pressures and adjusting them to suit the conditions rather than keeping strictly at the manufacturer's settings. Starting out my riding career on a BMX, tire pressures can be the difference from landing a perfect jump and falling on your face. Therefore, with a motor attached, it is even more important to get it right – personally I think the 'feel and grip' is more important than the pressure number – regardless if that causes tire wear.


Hope this helps and you vote for me :)
