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.

SOURCE: led indicators honda xlr 125 "NOT FLASHIN AT RIGHT SPEED "

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.

SOURCE: Rpms speed up faster then bike does. Sounds like clutch slip.

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.

Honda civic check engine indicator lights up when reaches 80 km per hour


Pull up the error codes and freeze frame data to repair the problem.
Tentatively it could be due to the malfunction of VTEC or Vehicle speed sensor.

What does it mean when the O/D off come on


This is the "overdrive" on or off indicator light. When it says "OD off", means that overdrive is off and transmission is in 3rd gear. When it's "on" then transmission will shift into 4th gear or "Overdrive". The engine will turn slower using less fuel for better economy.

Installed 2nd transmission, lasted two days acts =like its slipping turning 7000 at 20 mph?


Who did the installing and is it auto or manual? If I'm getting
this correctly, 7000 RPM is red line and no good for your
engine. Take it to Mazda if you didn't before. Did have
a one time unintended acceleration issue with my manual
07. RPMS shot to around 7000, car didn't speed up too
much, but had to shut the engine off and on twice till the
problems cleared. If it happens again going to have Mazda
ck it out.

How to reset malfunction indicator lamp on honda accord


You need to hook up your diagnostic tool to the connector beneath your steering, read the error code and look for its its meaning in a Honda Error code book.
or

disconnect your battery terminals, allow 10 minutes and then reconnect, that should clear the check light. if the check light comes on again, it implies that the reason for the fault is yet to be cleared.

I have a 1995 honda accord ex 2.2l vtec 5 speed. it has a vibration in 2nd gear on acceleration and intermittantly a vibration around 45-50 when i am in 5th gear at low rpms. around 1800-2000. I down shift...


if you have just rreplaced the axles that might be the issue,or you tires might have gone out of balance on the front. oyah you might look at both axles and see if there is a clean ring around one them, if so you lost your axle dampner off the axle and you have to replace it if you did just change axles you need to ask for the ones with the dampners on them it will cause a heck of alot of vibrations if the don't have them on them.

On the gage cluster what does F1 or FI mean


The Fl lamp lights up when the computer finds a malfunction in the programmed Fuel Injection. There are 33 different codes. The offending code is denoted by how many times the Fl light blinks.
Nine of the 33 codes do not show symptoms since the engine still runs okay. If the Fl light just stays on then the engine will not run because the computer will not let it run, (except in two cases).
"MIL" translates as "Malfunction Indicator Lamp ".

This is what the service manual says:

" The PGM-Fl MIL denotes the failure codes ( the number of blinks from 0 to 33 ). When the indicator lights for 1.3 seconds it is equivalent to 10 blinks. For example, a 1.3 second illumination and two blinks ( 0.5 second X 2 ) of the indicator equals 12 blinks. Follow code 12 on page 5-26.
When more than one failure occurs, the MIL shows the blinks in order of the lowest number to the highest number. For example, if the indicator blinks once, then two times, two failures have occurred. Follow codes 1 and 2 on page 5-12."

BOTTOM LINE > A blinking light that can't be understood, combined with instructions that can't be understood make the entire Honda "malfunction alert system" totally worthless and a pain in the neck to the owner. Why can't someone in Japan write a computer program that would render something like " Code 23 error " instead of a blinking light that means nothing because it is not user friendly.

You asked what the FI light means. It means you are forced to take your bike in for service at a Honda shop and pay big bucks to the dealer for something you could have done yourself for $12.00. This is a built-in money maker for Honda dealers.


Please rate this answer. Thanks.

Indicator Lamp Warning


could be but it comes up for a reason
I suspect a cat converter malfunction and the explanation to keep the rpms lower indicates that it is not functioning properly or has failed and could be blocking the exhaust system
It could be a simple O2 sensor ( one after te cat converter) that has malfunctioned
don't wiat for the next service but have it checked out by an accredited service center and have the fault codes read

Hi, I bought the Stunner CBF bike 4 years ago. It Hi, I bought the Stunner CBF bike 4 years ago. It was fine up to 40,000 kms. And after 40,000 kms its starts to smoking. So i replaced the ring and piston with original parts but it didn't work well and still smoking and again the technician open the bike and they said that it is the piston problem and they said that it should be replaced but not with the original parts and they replaced the ring and piston with 50mm size of Mahal brand. I have replaced all the parts like ring, piston, valve and other supporting parts but still my bike smoking when i accelerate above 60km/h. When i ride bikes in hilly areas with my friends behind then pick up is very less and its bikes smokes blue. My silencer gets wet and when the bike cool down then the silencer gets dry. When i check the engine oil it is fine up to mark of the leveler. So i am confuse what is the problem. For 8 to 10 times i used Sarvo, Enoc and Zic engine oil. Now i am using Honda engine oil in a gray bottle pack. The technician said that the parts of honda is not good enough as before. These are all made in china so that the problem occurs. So that they replace the Mahal brand ring and piston. Now my bikes traveled nearly 50,000 kms (49,800 kms). And one thing i didn't give my bike to the showroom for the replacement of ring and piston. I gave it to the reputed technician in town. I think this time i will get proper answer for my problem. Thanks
