You will need to remove the gas tank, air box, and possibly some hoses to get to the plug. Not a hard task, just time consuming on a newer bike.

How do I connect the brake cable to the handle bars on Mongooose bmx scan R60


Brake cables have a knob on the end of them, that knob fits into the brake lever. A great web site for more information is "Sheltonbrown.com". To install the cable ends, brakes must be released at the other end. The top of the cable at the brake should have a disconnect on it. That frees up the cable, so iut can be connected.

Replace front wheel


Hi Anonymous, start by jacking up the front end of the bike until the front wheel is about 6 inches off the ground. Have an assistant hold the handle bars and steady the bike during this procedure. Safely with wood block the frame and front wheel, let the jack down until all the weight is on the blocks. Remove calipers from fork leg brackets and let hang or use bungie cords to hold them out of the way, do not pull in brake lever while calipers are off. Remove axle nut and washers, loosen right fork slider axle cap nuts and with a long screw driver or drift take a mallet and bang out axle from left to right. Remove block under wheel then remove the wheel. Replace in reverse order, tighten slider cap nuts then axle nut to 50-55 ft lbs. Loosen slider cap nuts to allow right fork to find its center then retighten cap nuts to 15 ft lbs. of torque. Re-install calipers and torque bolts to 28-38 ft lbs. Jack up bike remove blocks, pump front brake lever and your good to go. Good luck

How the brake assembly looks on a 1989 harley sportster 883


The front and rear brake assemblies are not connected. The switch is inside the right hand controls. From your problem, I would say that the switch is inside the brake lever housing, it appears to be stuck on. Remove it and either free it or replace it.

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.

I have an old Avanti Edge Cro-Mo bike. I know the brakes are on the right handle bar but not sure how to upshift and downshift gears.


If this is the road bike model, then most likely the shifter and brake lever are the same. To brake pull back on the lever, to shift move the lever toward the center of the bike.

The Right lever works the REAR gearing. This makes small changes. The bigger lever will shift the gears toward a larger gear and make the cycling easier. The small lever works the opposite.

The Left lever works the FRONT gearing. This makes large changes. The Bigger lever will shift the gears toward a larger gear and makes the cycling harder. The small lever works the opposite.

If you don't have these types of levers, I can give you different instructions but the essentials of big lever/ small lever and Right/ Left are the same.

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!!!

How do i remove the front tire of my men's voyageur bike? I know how to work the release hub, but how do I get it past the brakes?


There is usually a release lever (or two) to allow the brake caliper to open a little extra wide. Some have a tab on the brake handle that you can twist to the side which allows the brake handle to spring open a bit extra (it has the effect of requiring the biker to have large hands to operate the brakes.) On many others (or yours may have both) there is another lever on the brake calipers that allows the caliper to open a bit wider. This lever usually has a little round tab a bit smaller than a dime. If all else fails, simply deflate the tire before your remove the wheel and re-inflate it after you put it back on. (terminology -- brake lever is the handle that you operate while riding the bike. brake caliper is the mechanism at the wheel that squeezes the rim when your hand squeezes the brake lever.) I hope this helps.

The housing of my brakes on the handle bars is loose and keeps moving. how do i tighten it so that it stops moving when i apply pressure on it and/or squeeze the brake lever??


If the screw is all the way tight and still slipping ... try to find a fatter part of the handle bar to mount the grip to. You will probably will not find any such that is convenient for you to continue to use the brake ... remove the grip, wrap some electrical tape around the handle bar, reattach the grip. Tighten it and give it a try.

I hope this works for you

Bike gears


usually there are 2 levers on each handle bar, one lever lowers the gear while the other one raises the gear. usually the right handle bar has the shift for the gears on the rear wheel, while the left handle bar has the shift for the pedal gears

Brake lights


check the brake light switch at the front level (right hand switch housing) or rear brake cylinder. One or both may be stuck. You may need to clean or replace.
