The tool kit for this bike is located under the rear passenger seat - right behind the tail light. You'll have to open both of your saddlebag locks/helmet locks and unlock the seat to access it.

Most bikes put there tool kits under the air box, under the left cover. You have to remove the cover to get to the air box.

Installing ape hangers and I have a turn signal wire kit extension. How do I remove the exsisting wires out of the clip in order to attach the extension wires


Well, you didn't say what year model bike you're working on but if the bike has the early connectors, you need a pair of special tools to "unpin" the plugs. If your bike is later than 1996, I think, it probably has Bosch type connectors. These things come apart but it's like one of those Chinese puzzles to me. I have gotten them apart but I have to figure each different one out. The service manual tells you how to get them apart. May be a site online that will tell you.

Good luck
Steve

Is ther a special spark plug socket to remove plug in a 2002 250 xr honda the one with the bike slips and is to short thanx in advance


You may have the wrong tool kit in your bike. Honda always gives you a spark plug wrench that will work with your bike in your tool kit. The tool kit may have been switched or incorrectly replaced at some point with a kit that contained the wrong wrench. You can go to a Honda dealer and order just the spark plug wrench you need off the parts microfiche probably for under $10.

My 2004 ultra classic encounter a failure in charging of my battery and the volt meter does not move pass the 10V mark and the battery indicator light came up after a short ride. send the bike to the...


No, the magnets are, as you know, simply glued to the rotor housing. The glue sometimes breaks loose and the magnets fall off. I'm surprised that you've run into this as much as you have. I've been working on Harleys for years and have only seen one magnet fall off. I've also seen one rotor that the magnets were not magnetized very well. This has been a problem lately. I'd talk to the dealer that I got the parts from as Harley is aware of the problem. I don't know if they'll make them good or not though.

Good Luck

Where is the battery located for a suzuki boulevard c50


The battery is under the saddle. You will have to remove the rear saddle (if equipped) as well as the front saddle to get at the battery. The tools to accomplish this are provided in the tool kit that came with the bike.

I would like to know how to rebuild a gas / oil motocross rear shock for a yamaha yz 250 2001


Try EricGorr.com Dirt Bike service manual is great. It will explain all that you will need to know about dirt bikes servicing your suspension and the complete bike tear downs. It cost about 20.00

RaceTech.com has all of the tools you will need. Get ready to spend some money though these are specialized tools so they are expensive but they will save you money in the long run.

If you have any money left over stop by my online store and buy some awsome Colored Silicone Radiator Hose Kits at

We put a new plug in it lasts a couple of days then fails. the plug is not discoloured it just looks wet. The bike is a carb version 08


The carb float level(s) may need to be adjusted. It should be a simple fix with a manual. Read the instructions, and the warnings, then take it apart and fix it. Get a gasket kit, or a rebuild kit for it too, and clean the old gasket material from the surfaces good. There may be instructions in the kit.

Cannot find the battery location


I have the same bike that you do. To get at the battery you need to remove both the seat (2 bolts, 1 screw (at back)), AND also remove the tool kit housing. The battery sits behind the tool kit, and so to slide it out you need to remove both halves (front and back) of the tool kit housing. You have to take the seat off in order to get at one of the screws holding one of the battery terminals in place.

When I do this, I find the hardest parts to be to get at the screw attached to the battery on the side of the bike opposite the tool kit; not such an easy fit. The other part I find hard for some reason is getting the tool pack to fit back into the tool kit housing once you reattach it to the bike.

I am seriously thinking about attaching a "pigtail connector" to the battery for easy charging during the winter. I understand that most trickle chargers come with this kind of accessory.

Travel tool kit


Try looking under your seat. A lot bikes/atvs carry them under the seat. It feels hard to lift them up but there is usually a lever to release it just at the tip of the seat near the gas tank. Being an older bike more than likely it has been removed especially if it was purchased used. Cabela's has kits for about 50.00. You can log onto their website at www.cabelas.com. Search the site along the left side of the page it is very easy.

1981 honda cx500 idle problems I have a 1981 Honda CX500 Custom. It putters real bad almost to the point of stalling but only when its warmed up. This sucks because it putters at every stop sign or red light I hit. I have the haynes manual so i checked everything it suggested including cleaning the carbs twice, checking the valves, adjusting air fuel ratio, renewing spark plugs, checking for air leaks (I have cracks on my intake boot, but don't go through to the interior). I tried the carb cleaner approach but didn't get any results. At one point it was so bad to the point that it would stall every time I would start out in first gear. I then found a loose wire connection on a yellow wire which led to the ignition coil. Tightening that helped drastically until this current problem. What has me puzzled is that it ran fine in the early spring, even after sitting for four years. Whenever i don't want to be embarassed, I will put the choke on just slightly and it will idle high, but smooth. I don't ride with it on for more than 10 seconds. There is a small oil leak from the clutch cover but I don't think that would cause an issue. I changed the oil at the beginning of spring but I plan on doing it again soon since I have a new filter on the way. I am all out of options and need someone else's advice! The bike has 34k miles and am not looking forward to rebuilding it if that is the problem. I am going to look more closely into the electrical side tomorrow to be positive there are no loose wires going from the computer to the ignition coil. Any ideas will be appreciated.
