You need a way to secure the bike so that it cannot fall !
then place a flat jack under the bike and raise till it touches
now remove the lock ring and have a friend hold the rear brake while you loosen the nut. now you can jack the bike up till tire just comes off the ground and remove the wheel.

USE a torque wrench to secure the nut and ensure the wheel pins to the spindle in its proper location....reinstall lock ring (tighten only to get it pinned in place).

Just bought some wheels for my kawasaki kxf250 2007 model. the wheels are off a kxf250 2005 model. cant get the back wheel to fit because the chain touches the tyre. the chain and tyre are both the same as...


Sometimes the offset of the rims are different from model to model or the spacer width are different lengths from model to model ? Would be worth confirming with a Kawasaki shop if these wheel from 05 - 07 inter change or you could be bashing you head against the shed wall !
Another thought is I assuming it has spacers each side of the hub are they the correct side or does the rim look pretty centered in the swing arm as is ? Could be worth swapping just to see if any different - good luck regards Jamie

How do i adjust the chain on my 2004 kawasaki 250f


Simple task, get the bike up on a stand so the back wheel is off the ground. Loosen the rear wheel nut (big 21/22mm nut attached to the spindle that goes through the wheel hub) not too much, just enough that the wheel will move when you adjust the adjusters. Now, on either side of the swing arm you will see a bolt, with a lock nut, running from inside the swing arm, onto the axel block, which the spindle goes through. Adjust these either out or in, depending on whether you need to loosen or tighten the chain. If loosening the chain, you might want to give the rear tyre a kick forwards to move it in (after you have loosened the adjusters inwards). So thats how you do it, simple. The chain should have no more than half an inch movement up and down after adjustment. Lock the adjusters in place using the lock nut, then tighten the big wheel nut up, job done.

Wobble at above 65


Better start checking everything. depending on the severity of the wobble, it may just need something simple like a new tyre. But all of the following can cause a problem
Tyres worn
tyre pressures\and balance\incorrect sizes
wheel bearings front and rear
spoke tension( if it has spokes)
Head bearings\twisted forks
swing arm bushes
change front fork oil\check suspension settings
loose axle bolts
bent discs
string line the wheels
bent frame or forks

Can you please tell me correct tyre pressure for front and back tyres on VL250?


There should be specs on the side wall of the tire for what weight you are loading the bike. normally 36 to 42 lbs

1997 BMW R1100R - front tyre scuffing rhs. This is on a bike I may buy. The tyre is well worn and will need to be replaced. I am concerned that the suspension may be out of alignment . What should I have...


The tyre could be worn like that simply because the previous owner liked right hand corners more than left or his common journey had more right hand bends.

But it could be a sign of something more serious.

It could be that the frame is bent at the steering head.(Or the swing arm is bent or swing arm bearings/bushes worn out)

A wheel alignment test should verify this.

It could also be a front suspension fault i.e. un-even adjustment of suspension settings (if it is adjustable) or incorrect fluid levels in the forks, or a bent fork tube
.
To check the steering head raise the front wheel up off the ground, grab the forks and pull back and forth. If you can feel movement then they are not adjusted properly.
Now turn the steering from side to side. The movement should be smooth and not notchy.
If any of these symptoms are apparent then the steering head bearings need adjusting/replacing.

To check the the swing arm bearings/bushes raise the rear wheel off the ground.
Grab the rear wheel and try to move it from side to side.
If there is movement the bearings/bushes are worn out.

To check the wheel alignment,place the bike on a level flat surface,loop a long piece of (thin) string around the back tyre(at about the 5 or six o'clock position viewed from the left).
so you have two pieces of equal length, long enough to reach past the front wheel.

Now pull the strings to the front of the bike.

Now position the front wheel straight ahead.

Now kneeling(or sitting on the floor at the front of the bike), place a string in each hand.

Now looking to the back wheel move the strings together until the string just touches the front edge of the rear tyre on each side.

Now holding that position, check the distance between the string and the edges of the front tyre to see they are equal.
If the gap is not even the bike has a twist,bend,missalignment somewhere.

If this seems a bit difficult you could try taking it to your local dealer where they can check it for you.

An experienced mechanic can perform these checks pretty quickly.

It usually takes me about half an hour maximum.

I hope that you find this information helpful

2005 Vulcan 1600 Classic; having problems with the steering lock. It won't lock/unlock at times. Flooded with WD40, but still does it. Any help? Also ever since new has a steering wobble when decelerating...


When you go to lock it or unlock the steering give the bars a little wiggle while turning the key. Somtime the rod that goes into the hole gets gummed up. As for the front end wobble I would take a look at the wheel to see if it has gotten bent or if you have lost a wheel weight. Also check the wheel bearings buy getting the front wheel off the ground and hold the front end from moving and grab the top and bottom of the wheel and see if there is any side to side rocking movment. If there is stop riding the bike and get them replaced.

Will 190/0x17 tire clear the chain, swing arm, etc. on a GSF 1200


depends on the make of tyre whether u will have clearance or not. U should b aware that 190s r not made to run on 5.5 inch rims and doing so stuffs up the tyres profile and will adversely effect the handling.

Chain touching the swing arm


Hi ..... Welcome to the 'custom' world ! As you've discovered changing one thing leads to another. The chain angle has changed due to the shock length. You could try going to a breakers and buy another chain guide rubber ? More involved solutions could be to off set gear box sprocket, intermediate chain tensioner pully, go back to stansard shocks (which is main problem) and widen rear mudhuard/fender (which as you can weld isn't a big issue) or make up a 'tunnel' out of a round or square section of nylon and allow the chain to run through it. Let us know how you get on.
