Question about 2000 Honda VTR 1000 SP-1 (RC51)

1 Answer

When i start my 2000 rc-51 1000 then give it throttle.

When i give it throttle it makes a clinking nose. Its almost like there is something clinking around in there but only in under rpm. I was thinking it might be a lifter. because the clanking sounds like it is on the top of the motor. I was driving down the high way maybe alittle faster then the speedlimit then the battery took a **** on me. then when i was going down the highway still i tried to pop the clutch and thats when it started too make the noise.

Why does my Hubsan H107c only blinks blue LEDs and won't start up anyone know how to solve this problem?

Sounds like it has not bonded with the transmitter. Check the manual for bonding. Should be something like " switch on quad..holding throttle button down (pressed in) switch on transmitter ,wait until lights stay steady.Release throttle and set to lowest position." but check the manual as different units have different bonding setups.

Make sure you have good batteries in the controller; if you are using it to charge the heli from they drain really quick. Good luck and have fun.

My 2000 silverado will not start after i turn it off

This is because your throttle body is dirty. What you are doing when you give it gas is just giving it air the computer gives it gas. Clean around your butterflyin your throttle body so air can get by without stepping on gas pedal That will fix it.P.S only use throttle body cleaner to do this,they sell it at any auto part store.

Either the throttle body is being held open by something or the idle control valve is stuck open. Check where the throttle cable hooks to the throttle body, make sure the cable is not caught on something.
