Hi Michael, Harley did sell 125cc bikes starting in 1955 and quit selling them late 60's earley 70's but none were called a 125 Bullet. There is a motor scooter out there today though called a Bullet 125 made by a company called " Taiwan Golden Bee " and distibuted here in the U.S. exclusivley by Cobra Powersports with tons of dealers nation wide, just go to: and type in your zip code for the dealer nearest you. Good luck

How to remove a starter from a dodge avenger

  • Front exhaust pipe
  1. Starter terminal and connector.
  2. Starter motor.
  1. Starter motor.
  2. Starter terminal and connector.
  • Front exhaust pipe

Fig. Fig. 7: Exploded view of the starter motor mounting-2.5L engine
To install:
  1. Clean both surfaces of the starter motor flange and the rear plate. This is important since the starter grounds through its case and the transaxle flange to which it attached. Some remanufactured starters may have paint on these areas which should be cleaned off before installation. Install the starter motor onto the transaxle and secure with the retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts to 20-25 ft. lbs. (26-33 Nm).
  2. Connect the electrical harness connectors to the starter.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable and check the starter for proper operation.
2.5L Engine
See Figures 8 through 14
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the left strut tower. The ground cable is equipped with an insulator grommet which should be placed on the stud to prevent the negative battery cable from accidentally grounding.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Loosen, but do not remove, the exhaust pipe-to-manifold retaining nuts.
  4. Place a drain pan under the oil filter to prevent oil spillage, then remove the oil filter.

Fig. Fig. 8: Loosen the exhaust pipe-to-manifold retaining nuts to provide removal clearance for the starter

Fig. Fig. 10: After removing the oil filter for access, unfasten the retaining nut and disconnect the positive battery cable

Fig. Fig. 11: Disengage the push-on starter solenoid connector
  1. Remove the positive battery cable retaining nut and battery cable from the starter.
  2. Disconnect the push-on solenoid connector.
  3. Remove the 3 bolts that attach the starter unit to the transaxle.
  4. Pull the exhaust pipe down just enough to provide clearance for the starter motor. The exhaust pipe does not have to be separated from the pipe-to-manifold threaded studs.
  5. Remove the starter unit from the vehicle.

Fig. Fig. 12: Remove the 3 starter motor-to-transaxle housing attaching bolts

Fig. Fig. 13: Pull the exhaust pipe down just enough to provide removal clearance for the starter

Fig. Fig. 14: Carefully remove the starter motor from the vehicle
To install:
  1. Install the starter unit onto the transaxle and install the 3 mounting bolts.
  2. Tighten the mounting bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
Before reconnecting any wiring to the starter solenoid, clean the wire terminals of any dirt or corrosion.
  1. Reconnect the positive battery terminal and retaining nut to the starter solenoid post. Tighten the retaining nut to 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  2. Reconnect the push-on solenoid connector.
  3. Reinstall the oil filter.
  4. Lower the vehicle.
  5. Reconnect the negative battery cable.

Broken shocks

the bearing may have failed on the tub-this may even have caused the shock to fail-the motor can't start the tub because there's to much restriction-cheers Denny

Taking the motor out of my dirtbike

The motor mounts at 4 points-cylinder head, 2 under the front of the motor, and the swingarm pivot bolt. In order remove- seat,tank,rear subframe,exhaust.Remove the motor mount at the rear of the head, leave the throttle cables on the carb, unplug the wires to the TPS and remove the carb.Bag it and tie it up out of the way. Remove top bolt of rear shock and the swingarm bolt, pull the entire swingarm and suspension back as far as you can-you'll need the room to back the motor up a little to get it out of the frame. Unplug the ignition wires, and remove the last 2 mounting bolts from the front of the motor thru the frame. from the left side of the bike, back the motor up and rotate the front toward you and it comes right out. Actually took a break from installing a fresh Honda 250 R motor to write you this tip! Good luck!

I was driving and my car started making a really loud rattle noise everytime i went over anything. now this just started happening today and i sounds like something is really loose underneath the front of...

It could be the exhaust mounts which are rubber and break over time. If you grab the tail pipe when it is not hot, can you easily move it up and down. If so you will have to get on the ground and look down the length of the exhaust to find the rubber mounts. Usually the top of the remains attached to the vehicle chassis hook or the exhaust mounts, which makes it easier to identify the connection point. The other possible problem is the strut or shock is broken. You will need to get under the car to look at the suspension or remove the wheel to do the same. Last, check the motor mounts if they are broken.

Is there a recommended way to replace the drivers side front shock on a 1999 Dodge ram 4x4 diesel

For shock removal and replacement is fairly easy -- first remove the top shock nut and then the three nuts on the tower surronding the upper shock nut - then remove the bottom through bolt and pull shock up through the top -- install in reverse order - (don't worry about the shock expanding after you get the bottom bolt back in, you can push the top of the shock down with the tower and secure it). recommend you replace both front shocks

Do i need a spring compresser to be able to remove the front shocks

No you do not need to compress the springs to install new shocks. Todays shocks have a nitrogen charge; you'll note your new shocks will have a cable on them. Install the lower portion of the shock, next with the upper end aimed to where you want it to go, cut the cable holding the shock back. The nitrogen within the shock will cause it to slowly extend. If you cut the cable prior to install you'll need to compress the shock and wire in down in to place for install.
Please let me know if this helped,

Loud thumping rear right hand strutt

There is obviously other suspension or exhaust bracket problem that is looose. Check all the bushings in the front end, your steering linkages, recheck the strut bolts, check the entire exhaust system to see if it rattles and look for loose brackets or things maybe hanging down on the car. Also look at motor mounts to see if one is broken. Hope this helps you, Rick

Loud noise/bang from the back of the car when going over bumps

You more than likely have one of two problems. One of your shock absorbers has a broken attachment bracket or 2) You have a broken exhaust bracket to your muffler. To check the shock just have the vehicle on a flat area motor turned off with emergency brake on and go to each side and "bounce" the vehicle using your body weight. Then to check the exhaust do this when motor is completely cool motor off emergency brake on and chock the tires so there is no chance the vehicle will roll. Get under the rear and attempt to move the exhaust assembly. If it moves to any degree side to side etc then it is this. If the vehicle bounces excessively when you bounce on it then it is the shock - repair accordingly. Hope this helps.

Heat questions

The shock would get just as hot without the exhaust being next to it. The amount of heat generated by the thousands of up/down cycles a shock goes through, especially at racing speeds, is higher than the heat transferred from the pipe being next to it.
