SOURCE: vibration in handlebars/forks??

Hi,
Front end vibration can be caused by front rim/tire out of balance, worn wheel bearing(s), bent front rim, or fork misalignment.
Since you recently had fork work done, I would first check the forks for proper alignment, then have the bike on a stand and spin the wheel to see if there is wobbling. To check for bearing wear, while the front is off the ground, try to rock the wheel from side to side. If you can feel or see movement, you will need new bearings.
Hope this helps

Hi,food for thought,have you checked that the wheele bearing is not worn(put bike on centre stand hold wheele on tyre 6 clock and pull with one hand and push with other hand)and see if you can feel eney play in the bearing,if so replace,also with bike still on back wheele spine wheele and see if it pins freely and that the discs are not warped,if not then if there is a fork brace check that it is tight ,check that the head racers are not loose or worn,with bike still on centre stand hold weele with one hand and front brake with other hand push and pull with wheele strate towards and away from bike and feel for play if there is try tightening,if not,then turn front forks left and right still holding the forks and wheele in same place do this slowly and when the wheele gose past the centre piont(strate)feel for eney notchy ness,if not bearing should be ok,if there is notchy ness replace,if its none of these I would get the wheele rechecked that it was balanced right,all the best hope you get to the bottom of the problem.

How do you lift a 1982 yamaha 920 virago to the center stand


Left hand on handlebar grip, right hand on handle under the seat, right foot on the centerstand lever, bike vertical on flat ground with the handlebars/front tire straight. Push down on the foot lever of the stand while lifting from the handle. Most of the work done is by pushing the lever and the lift handle is mostly for stabilizing and helping to raise the bike. This applies to all bikes and once you get the feel for it you'll find that any size bike is pretty easy to put on the stand. I can center stand my CBR1100XX while on the bike, first time was hard, but once I got it down it's fairly easy.

Cannot find manual for 98 rodeo 3.2 4x4 and need to know engine oil capacity. auto zone said 4.5 qt. did that and now oil level is really high on dipstick, just need to know capacity


Hi there. 4 qt's for motor.5 for filter.There are 4 ways to fix this. # 1.If your oil filter is in vertical position,remove it with a band tool and drain it or replace it with new filter.Use new oil for gasket and make sure old gasket isn't stuck on motor.Please use 3 ton jack stands to support car on the frame. # 2.Use a box end wrench to loosen oil drain nut and loosen a little at a time until the oil stops dripping and turns in to a stream,close it once in a while and check level.If you don't know how many threads are on the plug best to let it drip. # 3.11935_f.jpgbuy a dip stick oil changer and change oil with a tube down the dipstick tube.This one comes from a marine supply and is a bit pricey at $70.00 + tax but is safer than under the car work.Called a big boy. Auto parts store will have these tools as well,some will drain your transmission and then you can change the filter with out all the mess.(filter is inside the transmission pan,no drain plug)..........Thank You for choosing FixYa.

How to tighten steering head bearings on a 1999 yamaha r1


HI, CARRY OUT THE CHECK BELOW BEFORE YOU START ADDJUSTING YOUR STEERING.
place the machine on a stand, suport the front of the machine so you can turn the steering freely from lock to lock and geting a feel for how tight the bearing is before adjusting or even undoing the top nut, grasp the forks at the bottom as you kneel in front of the machine pulling on the forks at the lowest point to feel for free play, normaly detect by a small amount of movment,or a clicking noise



tightening the steering head bearing on any bike is not difficult, but it does require some level of skill, undo the top nut on the centre of the yoke, below that you will see 2 castleated nuts some models have a locking tab between them so you cant turn 1 without first undoing the other, in this case it is best to remove the top yoke, once you can turn the nuts under the yoke you simply turn clockwise to tighten and anti to slacken,

there is a fine line between tight and slack, a bearing which has been left in a loose state for a prolonged period may require replacing, as so 1 that feels rough or notchy,

in some cases only a small amount of tightening is required, remeber when the top yoke is replaced and tightened this will put more tension on the bearing, so a bearing that feels tight without the top nut tightened will be overtight when yoke centre nut has been tightened, method of satifaction is when the top nut is tight with the steering clear of the ground in a straight ahead position the handlebars must fall from centre left, right with no friction detected, again checking the movment by pulling on the fork lowers.

OVERTIGHT BEARING WILL AFECT THE STABILITY OF THE MACHINE.

2000 A4: notchy gear change when the engine is hot


Check the gearbox oil - has this been changed (with the wrong grade) just before the problem started ? May also be too little oil, from a small leak - which will get very thin when then inevitably overheating. Best to change the gearbox oil, note if lots of sludge or debris comes out (or is attached to the drain plug). If oil is the problem, total siezure may be just down the road.

My honda cbr 125 feels is hard to steer as slow speeds.


sounds like the bearing's in the triple clamp area are ether warn out or is over tighten a quick test " stand over the bike like you would be like your at a stop light,place both feet on the ground and grab the handle bars with both hands and lift like your trying to lift the front of the bike up to see if you feel any play "YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIFT THE BIKE YOU COULD REALLY HURT YOU BACK". if you do feel play you will want to take the bike in to have this replaced.

Powersteering


It could be the rack bushings - take a look and see if they're worn (it shouldn't be hard to see them with the car up in the air). If they are, they won't anchor the rack as they should, so some of the notchiness could be play in the bushings as the rack itself shifts while you turn the wheel.
