Question about Honda Motorcycles
I have a Honda vt250F which has a SPEED light indicator which comes on at around 7000 rpms is this just a japanese warning mechanism about speed and not a mechanical problem with the bike?

SOURCE: Speed increase
I had a small Hyosung 125cc Easy Rider before and it could not go more than 110km/h no matter how hard I tried. So I found the cheapest way to add on the KMHs.I checked my rear sprocket and as i remember it had 45-47 teethso I changed it to a smaller rear sprocket of 39 teeth and immediately I could get an extra 15km/h to it.So an inexpensive way is to reduce the rear sprocket size.It cost me a mere USD3.50 for a local made rear sprocket and some tips to the mechanic. No need to spend a bomb on NOSTURBO etc.,,

SOURCE: ENGINE rasping noise!
more than likely tensioner, or could possibly need a valve adjustment. But I would doubt either one if you only have 1000 miles on the engine. Unless the engine was torn apart and assembled. then it may be out of spec.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
The reason that the flashing speed of LED indicators are faster/different from the standard bulbs is because the original flasher were designed for the current flow of bulb types. A LED type indicator offers very low resistance and consumer very little current hence the original flasher fails to operated correctly.
Your idea of changing the flasher relay is correct. Electronic/LED flashers are available here, here and/or here.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

You can adjust it by slackening the cable...unless it has hydraulic operation....Otherwise get it replaced before you do more damage..ie clutch dust and debris in the oil, so dont forget the oil and filter change too.
