Sounds like you got good advice at the shop. it is rideable worst case scenario you will lose second gear completely but these bikes can go without it. just not as fun.

I am a new rider, and i need all the help i can get. Can you please tell me step by step how to start my bike? i feel im missing something

Make sure the kill switch is pressed down towards you. Also be sure it's in neutral. My Boulevard is cold-natured so the choke needs to be pulled out completely

Just purchased one with no owners manual. just wanted to know the tyre pressures and engine oil type recommended. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated

Go with 20w50 motor oil. No synthetic lubricants. Look at the sidewall of both tires. There will be a 'MAX PSI' embossed on the tire. It will probably say Max 55 PSI. At 55psi the bike will ride like a rock. At 15psi it will ride really squirrely. Find a psi at which you feel the bike handles well and rides well. One rider may weigh 125 pounds and the next rider may weigh 300 pounds. The best psi for each rider will be different due to weight. Chances are that 30 to 45 psi will do the trick. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks.

My bike keeps fouling my plugs i got a 2003 yamaha yz 125 i chucked a br8eg plug init and a new air filter but the problem just wont go away

Two things could be at fault here. First - it's a good possibility you would benefit from a new top end. Top ends go away fast in these because they are single ringers. Under hard riding, the compression starts to fall off after just 2 hours. Poor compression means lower combustion temperatures which will lead the bike to run rich.

The other possibility is that your jetting is off. If you have had this bike for a while and it's always run well then slowly started to act up, its likely poor compression, but if you recently got this bike and do not know the history of it, then it could be a simple jetting issue - not at all uncommon for 2-strokes.

Also - no need to run the BR8EG. This is a resistor plug and is a higher performance plug. If you are a top Pro rider, you could feel the difference but for 99% of riders they could not tell the difference between a BR8EG and a B8ES. The B8ES is readily available from auto parts stores (NGK stock #2411) for $1.89 instead of $12+ for a EG plug form a bike shop. This info alone could save you a bunch of money. Keep in mind the stock plug is BR9EG, so you are running one step hotter which is fine.

Also keep in mind there is a lot of information that I do not know, nor do I know the overall condition of the bike. Internet diagnosis is always tricky, but I thought I would point these things out. I hope this has helped, but if not - we need more detailed info to properly diagnose the problem.

It all depends on the rider. If you feel comfortable with the weight and size. The hardest part of learning is the balance point, and throttle control. If you feel confident, and patient, go for it.

Glamourous issues

I cant get what kind of sound are you getting. But for pick up problem,its the most common problem with all bikes. and there are lot many solutions to this. like cleaning and adjusting your carburator settings, checking your exhaust,checking your engine head,checking your air filter.  So what i can better suggest you is to go to the nearest HH service centre,get it serviced and ask them to fix it. because all companies have their standards through which the bike comes out. and so when you get it done through HH people,you can get your bike set to the original initial standards what you got it for the first time.
