So my bike was riding fine up to Thursday night. I just changed the oil on Sunday and every time I rode it there were no issues except for the bike taking a while to turn over about half way through a 4...


As I'm sure you suspect, changing the oil and sparkplugs should have nothing to do with the symptoms you've outlined. The symptoms "seem" to indicate a problem in the charging system. Either the battery is in need of replacement or the regulator is fried. One way to test which is at fault is to jump start the bike (be VERY careful doing this as a car battery will fry your system if you connect it wrong). Once it is started, remove the jumper cables. If you need to rev the engine slightly to keep it running, this is normal as a dead battery is a big draw on the electrical charging system. If you can, have a friend hold the bike RPM's around 1500 and disconnect one of the battery leads on the bike's battery. If the bike continues to run (my suspicion is it will), you have a bad battery. If the bike will not run, then the charging system is the culprit. It could be something as simple as a regulator or as complicated as the generator (inside the engine).

Nightrod stops firing a few seconds after starting


Probably fuel system has trash in it, The oil light comes on after engine dies would be right as the ignition is still on and no oil pressure.Fuel stabilizer may have caused trash to break free and stop up the system.Also vacuume to fuel shutoff could be off or stopped up too.

While riding my R6 last night the dash lights turned off and the RPM's dropped to zero and back up with the red line light flashing as if I had shut off the bike and turned it back on. This happened...


Sounds like a bad connection somewhere in the power to the dash. Check for corroded/dirty/loose wires & connections from the dash back to the fue for it
It could even be a dodgy fuse or holder

Hope this helps

Trophy 1200 overheating low mileage!


hey, just finished huge ride across europe on one. Look at radiator and water pump, check oil levels and type of oil used. sounds like a blockage in water pump and or, radiator or hoses. Check electrical fan is running after bike stops? If fan is not working the bike will over heat as it requires fan to draw air trough the radiator constantly. Terry Tourer Australia

1998 valkrie wont turn over


Your battery is most likely the cause. The tail light and dash light do not draw much juice from the battery. However the headlight and starter are a different story. Are you absolutely sure you turned everything off before you took your break? If you are and you don't ride your bike a lot you should get a trickle charger for it. Use it when not riding. It will prevent you battery from completely losing it's charge thus protecting the battery.
If you do ride often then you should have the battery tested. You may need a new one. Remember that once a battery has been drained too low, permanent damage can occur.

Hello and godd morning what can you tell about the gz 250 1999' regarding maintanece costs,engine trust,ride comfrtable,malfunctions ect'ect' thank you


The GZ250 is a pretty good bike. It handles well and is lightweight compaired to similar bikes. The brakes are good and you will probably get around 50 to 60 mpg. The bike services no diferent than others except that the tank must be removed to change the spark plug. There are a few things to consider when buying a used bike. See below. . .

Does the engine start easy and idle smoothly? Does it accelerate without hesitation?
Any smoke when it starts or when pulling away from stop light? > Bad valve guides.
Any smoke when riding at 30mph? > Piston rings worn or possible previous sieze up.
Does the clutch engage and disengage smoothly? Clutch lever easy to pull?
Any oil or coolant fluids leaking after a ride?
Do all gages work? Lights, horn and flashers?
Any red lights on the gages lit up?
Do front and back brakes operate and stop smoothly?
Is the motor oil pretty clean or really dirty? > Sign of how well the owner has cared for the bike

Is the oil "white-ish"? This indicates water in the oil, bad water pump seals normally.
Any funny sounds from the gear box? Anywhere else?
Does it shift smoothly up and down the full range? Neutral light come on properly?
Sprockets still have rounded tips not pointed? Well lubricated chain?

Good tires? How old is the battery? All lights work properly?
Is the upholstery good? Plastics cracked or broken?
Gas tank badly rusted inside? Do the wheels run true or weave?

Do the forks look bent from a side view or front view?
Ever been wrecked? What service work has been done in the past?
With the handlebars driving straight ahead, is the front wheel pointing a slightly different direction?
Does it drive nice or is the bike squirrely to drive? How about around curves and corners?
Do all accessories work properly?
Ask what doesn't work on the bike. What known problems do exist?

.
These are things to look for. I hope this helps.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

01 gsxr that fl code came on and oil light is on.


It is not safe to drive with the oil light on, you risk major engine damage. It means low oil pressure. The FI light means a fault with the fuel injection system. You will need diagnostic equipment connected to the bike to read the fault code(s). Most likely this will be at a shop.
