What type of motorcycle is it ? You will need to at least tell us what make and model of motorcycle it is. Most general brand motorcycles have either a full bar that acts as both handlebars. There are a few brands that have a "center cap" that when the bolts are tightened the cap squeezes down on each individual handle bar. If yours is like that then i would start with seeing if directly between your handlebars and right above your forks if there is a plate with bolts through it. If there is then check to make sure that those bolts are tight.

How do you lift a 1982 yamaha 920 virago to the center stand

Left hand on handlebar grip, right hand on handle under the seat, right foot on the centerstand lever, bike vertical on flat ground with the handlebars/front tire straight. Push down on the foot lever of the stand while lifting from the handle. Most of the work done is by pushing the lever and the lift handle is mostly for stabilizing and helping to raise the bike. This applies to all bikes and once you get the feel for it you'll find that any size bike is pretty easy to put on the stand. I can center stand my CBR1100XX while on the bike, first time was hard, but once I got it down it's fairly easy.

Ing sound coming from left handside of xsaara picasso

If the knocking sounds like thudding or something dull is knocking on the car, remove the left front wheel and check the drive shaft boot. It could have been torn and parts of it is hitting the lower arm. If it comes from the engine, check the engine mounts, all 3 of them.

Need to chnage the handlebar grips on my 2006 wide glide

The left side grip just slips onto the handlebars. There may be some glue to help hold it on. I usually take a very small bladed screwdriver and slide it between the handlebar and the grip and spray some WD40 or something in there. You may have to loosen the bolts that hold the switch housing on and move it inward to the center of the handlebars just a bit to get the screwdriver under the grip.

On the right hand side, things are a bit different. The handlebar grip is on a plastic tube that operates the throttle cables. To get it off, you must loosen both of the cables at the adjusters. Then, take the bolts out that hold the top and bottom halves of the switch housing together. Seperate the switch housing so that you can get to the cables in the housing. Carefully, remove the cables and the ferrells from the twist grip and remove it.

Lubricate the new throttle sleeve with white lithium grease and slide in onto the handlebars. Reinstall the throttle and idle cables with their ferrells in the appropiate slots. Reassemble the switch housing and readjust the throttle and idle cables. Check for proper operation prior to starting the engine.

Good Luck

The orange attention light has come on ... no writing or anything in the lit led box

Remove the jetdirect network card from the printer. Does it still error. If so, hold down the green tick button and power the printer on.This will cold reset the printer.If it still wont work carry out an engine test print test. on the right handside you will find a small hole. if you find something that will fit this hole, say the inside of a pen, push it in the hole and you should feel it press a button. if a test pages comes out with lots of lines on it then it generally means the engine of the printer is working. This could mean it's a formatter board fault, the board that has the network card and parallel port on it

The handle bars slip and tightening the nut doesn't work.

when you tighten the nut on the handlebar be sure the nut does not turn the bolt you may have to hold the bolt with a vice grip

If you are sure it is as tight as you can get it and the handle bar moves you may have to losten it and put a shim between the handlebar and the clamp throat

Also, the handlebar does go down into the forks this controls the side to side movement of the handle bars when you tighten this bolt it keeps the unit tight into the forks
