SOURCE: 02 748 that was dropped

No, it could not jump time from being dropped. Check for vacuum leaks in the intake system. Something could have been moved, allowing air in where it isn't normally supposed to go. Also check your electrical system - battery connections still tight, no wires pulled taunt anywhere, none broken, no alternator or voltage rectifier cover slightly cracked or dented, shorting out.

SOURCE: 2001 duc 748 runs perfect for a bit then seems like its starving for fuel or spark and shuts off?

check your battery voltage and see if its on 13.4v if it is its a good battery, check your reg/rec unit to see if thats failing, as if it is, its gonna be worth getting it looked at as left untouched could case serious damage, and also check your alternator coils arent burnt up, if they are they arent generating any electric.

best bet to try checking the alternator, is ride it without any lights and see how far you go, then try the same with the lights on, if it dies quicker then you know its the alternator.

or for a quicker way get a multimeter on the battery terminals, measure it at 200 DC V and see if you hold it at about 4-5000rpm and its not at 14.6v or similar then its had it, anything under 13.4v is a fail.

No, not the spark plugs. Likely a limp mode from the bikes ECU. Your air box and filter modes may cause a lean fuel condition, not rich. Wait till you get and install your Power Commander. The ECU should reset when you disconnect the battery for the PC install. Make sure you get the right map for your PC.

2008 Harley Ultra CVO. When it gets hot the back cylinder spark plug starts missing. Also the power drops considerably. Any solutions?


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition or leaking.
3. Spark plug gap to close or to wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discarged.
6. Damaged wire or loose connections at battery terminals especially the ground cable at "BOTH" ends, ignition coil, or plug between ignition sensor and module.
7. Intermittent short circuit due to damaged wire insulation.
8. If your bike has a CKP sensor you must leave both plugs in
head and check for spark with a 3rd plug. Good luck and have nice day.

Hi Bill, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections.
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.

86 Shadow VT500 suddenly losing power/bogging down


first thing to do is to check fuel level. you mentioned about 290 miles since you owned it but no fillups. did you get gas from same store? not unusual to pickup trash or water in fuel from conv. stores. with that out of the way, look at your plugs and see what they look like. black and sooty would be fuel fouled and very white or very light tan would be lean. if plugs and fuel are eliminated, it could be the result of a stator coil starting to go south. these will require special tools to diagnose.

Yamaha Majesty 400 ABS and V-belt indicator lights flash on


Hi, Forouhcr moisture, condensation, rain, or bike washing can make the bike run sluggish, not able to rev, and misfire. Older bikes, engine configuration, and exposed electrical components are at the front of the line for acting up. During the diagnostic procedure spray Electrical Contact Cleaner on corroded wire connectors/pins/sockets etc. and apply a liberal amount of "DIELECTRIC" grease to the mating harness/wire connectors. WD40 works great for eliminating suspect areas in your quest to find the real offending gremlin.
For additional insurance you can spray a High Temp Clear Coat on the most vulnerable areas it will work like Scotch Guard does on fabric. Fabricate a rubber or plastic splash guard to deflect water coming off the front wheel getting to the front cylinder spark plugs. The design should be adequate for its purpose with the least amount of air flow restriction to cool the cylinders. The usual suspects are:
1. Air filter soaked with water.
2. Water in the fuel system gas tank and carburetors.
3. Wet ignition coil packs.
4. Spark plug boots wore out or loose allowing water to enter.
5. Spark plug cables old and cracked check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Spark plug wells filled up and drain holes clogged.
7. Water in a wire harness that has exposed open ends and have a sharp bend or kin allowing the liquid to form its own pool of potential threats to chaffed wiring.
8. Sensitive fuel tuners and downloaded ECM remaps may get confused with the abnormal cylinder temperature difference in a V-4 engine configuration.

996 Clutch Slave Cylinder Stuck


drum basket springs rubbers and so on, including the control rod because it had broken. The Clutch lever however operated fine with a nice smooth action before changing the clutch, but now the lever only moves about 10mm before becoming rock solid, making it impossible to disengage the engine. I have removed the clutch slave from the bike for inspection but it remains solid which I think indicates that the piston is stuck. The slave cylinder was hanging free from the bike for a few weeks, I do not know if this is significant. My questions are: What is wrong? How can I fix it? Bike: 996 European Biposto Year: 2000 Many thanks,having the slave hanging shouldn't be the problem. The only only thing I can think of is, when you replaced the rod did you get the correct one? I can't remember off-hand right now, but I know that the clutch rod came in different lenghts. I just can't remember if the 2000 and earlier were the longer ones or vise-versa. I'm sure some one here will know that one. I could be wrong about this is the problem, but it's my guess.,,,
