How to easily unstick a motorcycle clutch after a lay-up


The easy way to unstick the plates of a motorcycle clutch after it has been unused for a while is to put the front wheel up to a wall at 90 degrees to it, with both wheels on the ground
Get some intrepid friends to steady the bike for safety if you wish
Brace yourself for a big lurch
Start the bike in neutral, hold the rear brake on (if possible) & then with some revs, CLUNK the bike into gear, this shocks the plates apart
Then off you go

2002 Vstar 1100 is bottoming out with passenger


Replace the spring with a heavier duty should do the job.
Have you tried adjustments in the spring load to stiffen it up.
The rear shock on your Yamaha V-Star 1100 motorcycle assures that the rear wheel is always in contact with the ground and makes your ride much more comfortable by absorbing road vibration and shock while you ride.

But your shock needs to be adjusted for different riding styles, so depending on whether you ride fast or cruise slowly and how quickly you take turns, you may want to adjust the shock to get the most out of your ride.

1

Remove the passenger seat by loosening and removing the rear passenger seat mounting bolt with a socket wrench.
With the passenger seat removed, you should see two larger rider's seat mounting bolts.
Remove these bolts and pull the rider's seat off of the bike to expose the internals of the motorcycle. 2

Detach the quick-release clips of the ignitor unit found just beneath the seat using a screwdriver. Pull the ignitor unit up and to the right of the bike to move it out of your way.

Remove the mudguard quick-release clips in the same fashion, then pull the mudguard out of the bike to expose the rear shock adjuster. 3

Look for the small numbers on the rear shock adjuster.
On most 2002 V-Stars you should see the numbers 1 to 9 printed on the shock adjuster.

These numbers give you an idea of the current setting of the shock.
The higher the number, the stiffer the adjustment. 4

Loosen the shock by turning the shock adjuster counterclockwise to a smaller number using a spanner wrench.

This makes the shock softer and more forgiving when riding over bumps and uneven pavement, but will feel slower in turns and accelerations.

Tighten the shock by turning it clockwise to a higher number.
This makes the shock stiffer, increasing road response in turns and giving you a better feel of road conditions at the expense of comfort. 5

Replace the mudguard, ignitor unit, rider's seat and mounting bolts, and the passenger seat and mounting bolts.

Take your bike for a ride to feel the difference a turn of the shock adjuster makes.

Rear shock


You will need to suspend the rear of the bike letting the rear wheel hang free off the ground. After that its simple nuts and bolts. If i remember correctly the shock is located between the frame and the tire on the underside of the bike

Hi! I have a FUJI Thrill LT 1.0 bike frame with no rear shock (2006 model 17'') and I'm trying to figure out which rear shock to buy. On BikePedia.com they say my bike uses a "Manitou S-Type SRL,...


Eye-to-eye is the unloaded distance between the shock mount ends when its on the bike. Unless the shock could squish down flat the piston travel will be somewhat less than its total length. Effective axle travel from shock compression is a function of the bike design and the shock stroke distance. 145mm is the wheel travel, not the stroke.

Yes, they come in different lengths and stroke distances...

http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=46003

again, for different frame and suspension designs. You need to match the spec for YOUR bike. Unfortunately, no one specs the stroke of the shock when discussing the wheel travel. You may need ask Fuji directly.

shocks are fine, there is a mixtre of air and fork oil in the air shocks. if u want to check, u need a air pump that screws on and has an air gauge on it. harley sells the one for your bike. proper psi is at 13 psi.

My problam is my hight


Hello, Most all motorcycles with Shocks have an Adjustment on the "Bottom" of the Shock which makes the Shock "Firmer or Softer". By making the Shock "Softer" (Lowering it) will Lower the Bike when you sit on it. Making it "Firmer" (raising it) will make it Higher. The Firmest/Tallest Position on the Shock is usually best for riding Two Adults so that the Weight doesn't let the Rear Fender drop onto the Rotating Rear Tire. You can also Measure the Length of your Shock (Measured from Center to Center of the Mounting Bolts) and go to your Local Motorcycle Salvage Yard and buy a Pair of Shocks that will be 1"-2" Shorter and Make Sure that they are from a Bike that is Similar in Weight and Size! (You don't want to put a set of 125cc Shocks on a 900cc bike) but Please check your Rear Fender Cleareance First and make sure that you can lower the bike this much!!! Most of the Motorcycles that I Lower, I Never go more than 2" unless I am Positive that I have the "Clearence"!!! Thanks Azharleybob

88 xr250 rear shock leaking oil


It is normal for it to leak a little bit. If it is a pretty bad leak then replace the seal. Very easy to do once you get it off your bike, from now on dont lay your bike on its side unless you have to lay it down for a accident, other wise set it on blocks or what ever but try not to lay it on its side cause it can cause you to have other major problems that you do not want to hassle with

Adjusting rear suspension


the rear shock is adjustable, the ring below the spring turns and locks onto a kind of peg on the body of the shock. being that your bike is an 86 it may even be time for new shocks or an upgrade to stiffer. if you do adjust then make sure both sides are on the same setting. as far as tools needed some shocks can be done by hand with help from someone lifting the weight up on the back end. i dont know what kind of tools as i cant find a good pic online of your bike but maybe a C spanner / wrench
