I would not advise doing that on your bike. Your exhaust is tuned for longevity from the factory and if you do not install a factory or aftermarket performance system you could have issues. Your back pressure will most likely be too much and then you run the risk of burning out your valves and your performance will suffer. If you do not have enough back pressure the bike may not have proper vacuum and it most likely will have difficulty idling.

Will putting block off plates on my 1998 ZX 11 D stop it from popping on deceleration

Hi, Derek not sure what block off plates are but silicone sealing the slip joints in your exhaust system and new exhaust pipe to head gaskets will, your probably sucking air, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. For more information about your issue please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

How do I get the fan off the water pump without it spinning?

Put a set of Mole Grips on that shaft, lock them down and put a block of wood on the ground with the grips on the other end of the block

Or you can slip a long screwdriver or a tire iron between those bolts and the shaft and the other end on what looks like an exhaust pipe.

that doesn't look like a washing machine!

its important to have the right amount of backprettiar in your exhaust, so if going from 2 mufflers and 2 pipes to a single one would need to enlarge the size of the pipe to compansate. or it wont breath right and end up gutless.

Check the neutral safety switch, I don't know exactly where it is on you bike, but I have seen them screw in to the block down by the kickstand/exhaust area. Maybe you knocked the connector off.

When I put water in my 97 Tahoe it starts leaking heavily from the caddilac converter and around the muffler and exhaust pipe... What is this a sign of cracked head? Blown head cracked block? Intake...

Sounds like more water than can get out a crack. Check if you have a frost plug on the block has come loose and leaking. There will be about 3 on each side of the engine block, located just below where the exhaust manifold mounts to the block. It's a pretty easy repair, provided there is enough room to work where it is located. Sometimes a smaller such plug will be found on the rear of the engine. The coolant must be leaking externally and running and dripping off your exhaust .

How do i find out out where my exhaust leak is its all i can smell in my car i think it coming through the vents?

Do what they do at Midas/Monro/Meineke: listen, look and (carefully) feel. Let the sound guide you to the general area, then look for a hole/holes, and if none are seen, hold your hand close to, but not touching, the hot exhaust pipe(s), feeling for the rush of hot exhaust gases. Since you may not have a lift like these commercial outfits, or a handy trench to stand in (like JiffyLube) you'll have to jack up the car by at least two of its four jacking points to fully examine the length of your exhaust system.
Since you suspect exhaust intrusion into the cabin through the dashboard vents, you may choose to begin your exhaust system inspection at the exhaust manifold, which collects exhaust from each of the cylinders and conducts it to a single pipe leading to the catalytic converter.

My 2000 RK with 18000 mi seems to have the left exhaust blocked. Even after a good ride the left pipe is cool all the way up to right behind the rear cylinder. Why would someone block that left side pipe?

That does not sound like a blocked exhaust.
More likely the carburettor on the side or the spark plug is not working.
Check to see if you are getting a spark if you are you will have to have a look at the carburettor.

I need to know where the oxygen senor is locate at

There will be one located before your catalytic converter and one after your catalytic converter for each exhaust system you have.
In some cars, there can be 2 O2 sensors before the catalytic converter even if there's only one exhaust system.

Bank 1 will refer to the sensor that's on the same side as cylinder 1 and Bank 2 will mean the opposite side.

Sensor 1 will refer to the sensor before the catalytic converter and Sensor 2 will mean the one after the cat

Tune up

Slipping tranny can be caused by that. Rule of fixing cars is if not sure start cheap. Replace the Filter and fluid. Also it wont hurt to put in Lucas Transmission Additive with the fluid change. Change plug 2 ways if it has motor mounts on top then disconnect them and pull the engine foward. or

No need to rotate engine as I was told that sometimes this causes damage to exhaust link which is flex. First two plugs can be reached by going along the same channel as exhaust pipe from header runs. Last plug remove right side tire and you can reach up by body to change it. This one is blind, but it's possible.
