Rear tail light stays on all the time. Is this normal (new bike for me), meaning is the light supposed to come on BRIGHTER when the brakes are applied and that function is broken, or is the light supposed...


Good news. Mine did the same thing. There should be a running light and a "brake" light all within the same bulb. Check the switches on the front brake lever and the rear brake lever. Both actuate the rear brake light. You can usually do a quick test by pushing the brake lever on the handlebar all the way out and see if the light goes out. This is what my problem was. If you poke around you will see a switch on both brake levers. Make sure they are pressed in when your not pulling (handle bar lever) and pushing (right foot brake lever). You will see a switch with a little rod on it, when you press the foot break/pull the hand brake, it will come all the way out. That is when the light comes on. Hope this helps.

Brake light stays on


There is a switch on the brake lever and one on the brake pedal. try and work them with WD-40 to loosen dirt and lube them up. If that does not work you may have to change one or the other. It helps to put the rear of the bike up against a wall or something to see if the light goes on and off as you work the hand or foot brake.

No brakes at rear wheel of my 2005 standard goldwing. Had a new rear tire(screw/nail) put on and the service man told me.I normally slow down slow enough to use front brakes.I had installed full foot...


Try putting the bike on the center stand and get the front wheel off the ground with a floor jack. Spin the front wheel by hand and press on the rear brake pedal. The front wheel should stop. Likewise with the bike on the center stand and the rear wheel off the ground you should be able to lock the rear wheel with the foot pedal. On many Goldwings the rear pedal also operates one front disc. This is for people that refuse to use there front brakes to stop or slow there bike (80% to 90% of your stopping power is the front brake). Try bleeding the entire system front and back, you may just have air in the system. If the rear brake still does not work you may have a bad delay valve in the system. If you need to take the bike in to a shop, try to find a mechanic that is familiar with the system so they do not replace parts unnecessarily. That way you minimize your shop time and maximize your riding time.

First time driving a 1967 Triumph motorcycle coming up. Would like advice on where stuff is like clutch, brake, shifter and how to shift -- where the gears are. Thanks. Art asanfelici@verizon.net


Hi Art! First of all, congratulations on your 1967 Triumph... that's a beauty!!!

Basic things to know before riding a bike is it's parts.

Clutch is the lever you press on the left side of the handle bar.

Front disc brake is the lever on the right side of the handle bar.

Shifter is the one you're stepping on when shifting gears and is located on the left side of the engine if you're on it.

Now, you must first know if the gear is on Neutral by pushing the bike before starting the bike. If it's hard to push then the shifter is not in neutral. Press the shifter by your left foot until you are able to push the bike with ease.

Hop on the bike and start the engine. Most bikes have ignition starters but if your bike doesn't have one, then you have to turn keys to on position and use the kick starter. Rev the engine by pressing the throttle grip on the right side of the handle bar.

Engine is running and in idle position. Press the Clutch lever (left hand) and press the shifter once (left foot) DO NOT RELEASE THE CLUTCH YET!!!

Slowly press the throttle with your right hand until you hear or feel the engine purr...

Slowly release the clutch (left hand) until you fell the bike move forward.

If I am not mistaken, shifting the gears of the triumph is 1-down and 4 up...

Every time you shift gears, you need to press the clutch to release the gears.

Hope you'll have fun!!!

Ride safe my friend!!!

Don't forget your riding gears!!!

When I first start riding the bike, the brake lights work. After riding for a while, the brake lights stays on. When the the bike has had a chance to cool off, the brake lights work. After riding for an...


The brake light switch should be mounted to the back side of the rear brake pedal housing. My best guess is that the brake switch is heating up when the engine heats up, and is sticking. Clean the exposed part of the shaft of the brake switch plunger and give it a squirt of WD-40, Teflon, or other lubricant where it goes into the housing. Work it manually a few times to distribute the lubricant. If that doesn't do it, take the switch off and disassemble it carefully. Assuming the little spring and contactor don't go flying off and get lost, you should be able to clean and reassemble the switch. Seeing as how I have big fat fingers, poor close up vision without bifocals, and limited patience, I would suggest just buying a new switch just to save on the aggravation.

I have recently passed my cbt on a moped i was wondering if i could drive a geared bikeHELP ME PLZZ :)


as far as i know, in the UK you can now ride any motorcycle up to 125 cc there are rules according to age and horsepower, when i lived there i had to do my cbt ( i used the schools 125) then as i was over 21 i took the direct access course, which depending on your riding skills is a 3 to 5 day course followed by the full license test, all taken on a 500cc bike. then if you pass you can ride anything..

in the USA, well here in Massachusetts all you have to do is take a test on a computer and get 14 questions right outta 20, then you get a learners licence and you can ride anything you damn well want...... can you believe that... so stupid
