Question about Motorcycles

2 Answers

I was riding over at a track out in Bremen Georgia . When all of a sudden in the middle of me riding my bike stalled out on me. I pulled it over off of the track and tried to crank it back up and it wouldn't start . I checked the gas and I had plenty .so I pulled it back to the truck and I tried to roll start it .when I roll started it it started up but around the top end of the motor it started making an extremely loud raddling noise as if something medal was getting thrown around in the top end of the motor .and I also noticed that the top end of the motor was vibrating a bunch. I'm not sure what it could be because I opened up the top end when I got home and the ring on the piston seems to be fine there's no dents or cracks in it or anything .somebody please help ..

Hi, Anonymous for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike 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 problem. Good luck and have a wonderful day.

Could be big end bearing or broken piston rings. You took the barrel off and checked the rings and bearings, I assume.

SOURCE: 6hp Johnson outboard stalls & quits

go to an auto parts store and get a can of gasoline additive called seafoam. Read the label so you know how much to add to your 6 gallon tank. This stuff works wonders on outboard motors.

My transmission on my 2001 flhrci suddenly started leaking. don't notice leakage when bike is upright


Clean all oil from the bike exterior. Leave it sitting in an upright position for a period of time. This may require a bike lift or other such device. Then look for leak source. Make sure oil level is not too high. When changing oil it often gets on the cross member and may leak when on the jiffy satnd for a while until it is all gone from this area. Make sure to always use thread sealant and a good o-ring on the drain plug.

My v-star has suddenly decided that it will not run without the choke pulled at least 50% at all times. Also, it stalls at every stop sign/light.


Dirty jets and passageways can cause this. Also if the carb needs readjusted, it could happen. Has the bike been setting for a length of time over two or three weeks? If so, I recommend putting 1/2 can SeaFoam in the fuel tank and ride it an hour or two and if it improves, dirty carb is/was the problem. If not, the carb needs readjusted.

i have that bike i am 6ft and 165 lbs the bike is awesome i love it, i have it the softest it can be and its still not a soft ride to just sit and cruise around on the bush tracks. the 4 speed gear box is alright makes going up tuff rutty hills hard but hold on and keep the throttle on and it will go. bike pulls in any rev range even when iv doubled someone so it has the torque

My sons quad bike is getting no charge while his riding so if it stalls the bike wont start again


You say it is pull start ... is there a battery in the machine? If it is pull start, I dont understand your question ... If it is pull start, it makes its own electricity through a magneto arrangement.

Yamaha 535 stalling out and losing power after running for a bit


Sounds like a fueling problem either water in the carbs or the fuel flow from the tap is insufficient. If there is a vacuum pipe it may have been dislodged or holed.

675 common problems


The only downside of owning a 675 is that you get depressed when you're not out riding. Sign up for a track day and let an instructor tell you about steering, braking, where to keep your eyes etc. It's a mindblowing experience. Have fun
