    thanks for replying , the cooling fins are getting a lot hotter than i think they should , also the bike starts to splutter in 3rd gear upward , this is cured somewhat by putting a sponge on the end of the bendable pipe ? is it some kind of filter missing ?

Skyteam is not a bike I am very familiar with. My best guess is that the hose is a breather hose for the crankcase. Contact the dealers parts department on that question. I looked for a free service manual download with no success. We need to start by doing some of the basics.

Got oil in the gearbox? Is it fresh oil or been in there for several months? Dirty oil causes friction, aka heat. Burn premium gas If you don't already. Install a new NGK spark plug one heat range colder than the stock plug. Service the fuel system.

Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Remove the carburetor from the engine. Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Check and tighten the carb manifold also. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Get back to me with your results.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Should I buy honda accord sport or ford fiesta st?

Both good cars, Hondas last far longer. Got a 2006 FRV that has done 175000 miles, 2.2 diesel and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it, it is not mint but is excellent. Aford would not last as long and not be as reliable. Honda is a far better c r. Last car was a mondeo, nice car but was already falling to bits at 75000 miles when we sold it.

11304 field removal

I assume the wiring has been disconnected where required, use a soft face hammer and on the open end of the motor housing tap the end of the housing at each screw hole, after a few blows the field assembly should start sliding out (every action has an equal and opposite reaction) installation is the reverse, fit the field and keeping it parallel to the housing push it in by hand as far as you can then use the soft face hammer on the other end of the motor housing to draw the field back in, Note: don't hit the field itself or you will damage it

My car was overheating, losing water, it has had a new water pump and belt and its still has the same light (and burning smell) it is in the garage now and ive been told it may be the head gasket?! how...

those cars are hard to work on, and I would expect it to be an expensive proposition to do a head gasket-but they do have a known issue with the temperature sensor- what causes you or the people who worked on it to think it is a head gasket, what evidence is there? does it smoke when warmed up, and idling? Is there oil in the antifreeze or antifreeze in the oil? Does it run rough, miss, is there a check engine light? Anyone even think to change the thermostat?

My 2000 Jeep Cherokee has been overheating esp. when my air conditioner is on and im driving up any sort of hill. it also makes a squealing noise for a little bit when my air is on too. A few days ago it...

First when it's cool I'd replace the missing antifreeze. Then I'd have the Serpentine belt checked and/or replaced, while that's being done I'd have the pulleys, adjuster and waterpump checked.

Had a recent rebuild on 2002 gz 125, new piston, rebore etc, bike has done 250 odd miles since and has recently started loosing power. Changed oil recently because of overfill (slightly) and now wont stay...

First call the shop that did the work if they are worth anything they will help you out.
After i build a motor it always has a valve adj. after it has ran for a few i like to do it around 100 miles this lets everything find its groove if you will. Good luck

Engine overheating audi 4.2 a8 1999

I would have the cooling fan checked, and have the thermostat changed. An overheated thermostat (overheating caused by something else) will cause problems in the future.

Off idle miss

and I'm out of ideas. I have a RR 125 Motard with about 12000 miles on the clock. It's been trouble free for the years that I've owned it. Recently I noticed a slight miss when running at part throttle. RPM doesn't matter it misses from idle to almost redline but only when the throttle is in the first 5% of it's range. I did the full routine, carb cleaning, valve adjustment (ugh...shims), air/fuel/oil filters. No change. At more than 5% throttle, there's no miss, and it pulls very strong. At full throttle, I don't have the guts to see the end of 4th gear. Tempurature doesn't make a difference, hot or cold, it runs the same, although when the choke is on (cold) there's no miss (but a high idle). Turning on the choke after it's wamed up it will bog and die (like it should). I suppose I could have missed something when cleaning the carbs, but usually, a little bit of choke will fix that. Not in this case. There's no hesitation when opening the throttle, and under high loads, any RPM, any gear, it runs fine. So, I'm at a loss. I'm open to suggestions. ,Check for vacuum leaks first - carb boots, vacuum lines, etc. Also check the CV diaphragms for cracks, splits and pinholes. Then, I think I'd re-check/clean the pilot jets. Then, if that doesn't help, I'd open the idle mixture screws a bit - maybe 1/8 to 1/4 turn to get a little richer mix.,,,
