29 mm smoothbore carbs on 1980 kz 1000 motor idles down real slow then shuts off

Hi, Virgil and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
2. Air fuel mixture screws not properly adjusted.
3. Inlet system air leak.
4. Leaking accelerator pump.
5. Loose low-speed jet.
6. Plugged low-speed jet.
7. Contaminated or plugged low-speed circuit.
8. Enrichner valve/choke not seated or leaking.
9. Multi carburetors out of sync and need to be balanced.

Manual clutch will go into gear but wont move in any of the 5 gears

You may have an internal transmission problem or clutch issue. If you can shift the car into gear while running without using the clutch pedal, suspect a defective clutch

Subaru justy wont go into any gear

when was the clutch plate last replaced was it lately and the problem just started after the change
next there is a bush/bearing in the center of the crankshaft that failes/ dry and that seizes in the input shaft of the gear box and makes the clutch useless as it drives the box all the time
another thing is any oil or grease on the clutch lining will stick the plate to the flywheel face and cause a problem
if the clutch plates are old , the damper springs can come out /break and intere with the flywheel mounting bolts
removing the transmissions and checking the clutch assemblies will reveal the reason for the failure

1980 TS250 runs backwards

It was a normal effect on those old engines.Try to roll it downhill with 2nd or 3rd gear in and pop the clutch to start it.However you must adjust the plate that carries the ignition coil (it is located behind the stator's rotor/magneto wheel) to the correct advance angle if this problem insists.It is part number 2 in the picture.

I replaced the handlebars on my 81 yamaha 650 maxim. after that, the throttle won't completely engage the gears. it goes forward with a little gas, but if you open it up, the engine just revs and will not...

Chances are the new bars are a bit taller than the old bars. It sounds like the taller bars are making you stretch the clutch cable. No freeplay at all in the clutch lever, Right? If the clutch cable was not re-routed causing the stretch, the only thing you can do there is get shorter bars or get a longer cable from a similar bike or have a custom cable made at the shop. The blinkers is just an error in how the wiring was reconnected.

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?
