On turning the front brakes may be binding or it could also be the steering triple tree bearings.
You have to check all this and rule out any.
If its the steering bearing being tight, thn the bike would also not be stable on the road, so I guess it has to be the front brakes.....
Hope this helps!

Because its a mf powerful bike that can spin tyres or wheelie in the first 4 gears! Just check you tire pressures and tread depth and be careful :>)

My 2002 kawasaki ninja 250 is having trouble starting. (electric start) At first it was just giving me this clicking sound kinda like when your car wont turn over and start. So I replaced the battery for...


The oil light is on because the engine isn't running to build any oil pressure. Sounds like the new battery may need to be charged fully. After the battery is fully charged, and the 'clicking' noise is back (or not) check the battery connections for corrosion--especially at the positive terminal. If ok, you should get one solid click when trying to start. If ok, but still not starting, jump the two heavy terminals of the solenoid (click source) with a heavy wire which should bump the starter motor. If nothing, then the starter motor needs service--usually the brushes inside fail to make contact with the armature due to brush wear, or weak springs. Most dealers will likely only sell you a new starter--no internal parts. Hope this helps!

When is the last time you did a "once over" on the bike? Go around the bike checking for loose bolts and stuff. Also check the tension on the primary chain and the final drive belt.

Good Luck

Feeling a vibration in the bike only in gear at the 3-3.5k rpm range that the only way i can think to explaing is a feeling of a sticky bearning. does not do it in neutral


It could be wheel/tire balancing issue if you only feel the vibration at highway speeds (60 mph and above) then higher speeds it goes away.
I've worked with tires and rims on trucks, bikes and cars and have found that a harmonic vibration is usually caused by tires being out of balance.

Perhaps the dealer could check for a vibration on a dyno.

For the DIY bikers.....Use CAUTION but, the Old school routine would be to raise the wheels (heavy duty Bike Jack) strap it down and spin the tires by hand and check the rims for run out (to the sides) and the tires to see if they are round and true.

Then spin the rear tires to speed (3500rpm) to see if the shaking/vibration is there. Also rotate/spin the front tire and see if there is a heavy spot that will settle to the bottom. Add a the appropriate weight (1/4 oz stick on weight) to the opposite side (180 degrees) of the heavy spot. Spin again and see if totally random spots settle to the bottom. Road test and see if it improves.

I bought a toyota sienna 2006, now feels heavy


I think you have a problem with the Brake causing this symtom.
The engine transfers power to the wheels. When you feel it heavy since you have a resistance from the turning wheels.
At this milleage some calipers getting stuck didn't allow the brake pads return to its normal position causing a friction at the rotor then you feel heavy.
Just ask them to check brake since you feel the car heavy. Then see what they find out. Don't tell them what I explained to you since a crook can get your money with this reason while just a simple task to clean off the piston instead repalcing the whole caliper. Good luck

How do you adust the rear suspension on an 05 Honda CBF600n


you need to use the shock adjustment tool that came with the bike and just stick it in the adjustment holes typically located about half way up the rear shocks and turn it to the proper tension for you

How to ride a harley?


# Find a suitable and rideable Harley Davidson motorcycle. Not every Harley is suitable for 'cruising' or riding distances shorter than a few blocks or miles. If you really want to enjoy all a Harley has to offer, find a Harley that runs well, is comfortable, and one that you can handle. If you find the bike too heavy, drop down a level or improve your riding skills on another, smaller bike first. In general, the bike "heaviness" runs in the following order, from heaviest to lightest: 1. Road King 2. Softail (includes Fatboy) 3. Dyna Glide 4. Sportster * A note about the Sportster: Some consider it the most difficult to ride, despite its lightness. This is due to its relative unbalance and high placement of the gas tank thus raising the center of gravity. Despite this, it remains one of the most fun Harley's to ride, and is exemplified in carrying the honor of being the longest running production motorcycle in United States history. # Decide how you're going to get your Harley, either by borrowing, renting, or buying. Sometimes renting or borrowing (provided that you have a motorcycle license) is the best way to introduce yourself to the world of Harleys without a huge financial commitment. # Observe the bike. Look at the subtleties and richness of the chrome, or lack thereof, and special features unique to the design of the particular Harley you are going to ride. Prep the bike for ride by checking the gas level, tires, lights, and any obvious flaws or defects. # Get on the bike. Remember, "right is wrong." Get on the bike from the left side, as it is good etiquette. Feel the handlebars, feel the weight of the bike underneath you. Pull the choke if need-be. Then... # Start the bike. Listen to it. Feel it underneath you. Let it warm up as you warm up to the bike. # Ride the bike. See the road scurry underneath you. Feel the wind in your face and on your body. See how it's just much better when on the bike. Feel the rumble in between your legs. Lean back. See the blur of the side road as you look straight ahead. # Enjoy the ride. Harley Davidson motorcycles enjoy a rich and storied tradition. Riding one is not about the speed or handling of the bike per se, but rather, the enjoyment of the feel and embodiment of the entire experience. Look at the scenery, hear and feel the engine. Look to your right... to your left. Even look up at the sky - all the while making sure to keep another eye on the road to stay safe. Beware of 'cagers' ie. car drivers.

Drive shaft noise


when i back it up or move it forward when it is in nutral,, i cant hear it when the bike is running nor can i feel it when im ridding only when the bike is off and i roll it forward or backwards any ideas on whats wrong?,check the final drive lube level, make sure that's good. if that's ok then the problem probably is a worn worm gear that only makes noise when its moving slowly. To make sure its the drive and not tranny itself, see if it makes the same noise in 1st with the clutch in rolling it around. ,,,

Not getting along with my new falco


but im not really feeling the love for it. the main problems i have at the moment are that the front and rear suspension are really soft its ruining my cornering confidence and making the bike uncomfortable to ride. im 20st and 6'5 so there is a lot of me to hustle about. the hagon shock that the previous owner put on there has not adjustment other then preload and im sure the spring rate is miles off what i would need whats a good replacement shock for a guy like me? also the clutch is very heavy with little progression its either on or off so im finding riding in town hard work as well as slipping the clutch in corners. lastly the fuel economy is pretty poor, i only got 93 miles before my low fuel warning light came on. so any suggestions? because at this rate im considering selling it to get something a bit more pedestrian for riding in london like a fazer 1000.,I wasn't feeling the love for my falco for awhile either. For reference, I'm 6'6 and about 250 lbs. Helibars are a must IMO. Also, my level of hate went waaaay down when I installed a smaller (-1) front sprocket. Being able to get the bike into corners at the right revs (and torque) reduced the amount of braking I did, which let the suspension settle down. Toss the stock shock. They're great bikes, you just have to get it set up for you. ,,,
