How to start my 600 bandit '

Switch the fuel on at the petrol tap. In the olden days you used to have ON, OFF and RES (reserve). Some are now automatic, so you leave it on all the time and when the carburettor request fuel it opens. So it might say AUTO, OFF and RES.

Then you need to find the choke lever. This is usually a button that you pull out on the side of the carb. Push the button back as soon as it starts.

Then some larger bikes have an interlock where you have to hold the front brake on as you operate the starter button. Pull in the clutch too.

When you press the start button, open the throttle about a one eighth throttle. Maintain the revs a little as the bike warms up.

Finally, please be very careful if you do ride it. Defensive driving is the key, look at every road user as someone who can knock you off and ruin that lovely paintwork.

Revving engine gpr 125

Hi, Reece very scary it does happen from time to time on all motorcycles your reaction was great in killing the engine usual suspects are a rusted/bound throttle cable, a stuck carburetor slide, or broken return spring/cable on the carburetor or throttle body for injected models sorry you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Derbi despair, not for a mere $0 you can download another one.

What type of oil should you put in a Madass 125 cc motorbike? Also if the motorbike is having a problem getting into 2nd gear, what could be the cause of this problem? Gear box? There is no oil in the...

Nice bike!
The gearbox may be save-able if it hasn't done too many miles with no oil.
I would use a good quality semi-synthetic 10-40 multigrade but for acurate description of your bike, check this web site out. It may help you out.

Safe riding.

Just built a motorbike an sidecar outfit and if you go over 25 mph the handle bars shake. does anyone no what this could be please ?

The only sure cure is leading link front forks
You can try fitting a steering damper to minimise wobble but all telescopic forked sidecar outfits tend to have a wobble at some speed, it doesn't seem to matter how you alter the lean & toe-in

Hope this helps (if so please mark as helpful !!)
Ride safe

Does the RPM seem to bog down around 3000 - 3500? If so you have fuel delivery problem> Start with the filter.

Making a noise like a motorbike

sounds as if your fan motor is hitting on something most likely ice. the fan cuts off and on when the door is opened. the easist fix is to defrost the unit manually by unloading all food and unplugging the unit for several hours. if yo arent in a position to do this it will require removing coil covers to gain access to the fan and remove the ice manually. good luck peyton
