It isn air. It should be filled with nitrogen. If it doesn't have pressure in it, the seals in the shock need replaced.

1994 750 magna popping on acceleration and deceleration


Hi, Gary if your carburetor or exhaust is:
COUGHING is usually caused by an air leak in the intake system and will generally have the same telltale signs, a wet or damp buildup of oil/gas seepage at the intake manifold to cylinder or carburetor to intake manifold connection and in rare instances a worn throttle plate shaft and or seals.
POPPING on deceleration is usually caused by a lean fuel condition or an air leak in the exhaust system and is generally located where black carbon soot is seen as a flashing build up from any joint connection. This condition can easily be remedied by removing and cleaning both joint pieces and reassembling with high temp silicone and torquing the exhaust clamp to the proper spec.
SPITTING is usually caused by a faulty accelerator pump and or nozzle, or the float bowl needle and seat leaking and overflowing through the main jet mixing well nozzle, or the air-fuel mixture screw is adjusted too lean.
BACKFIRING is usually caused by a sticky/tight intake valve or a timing issue, 180 degrees out or cam chain off 1or 2 teeth.

My automatic seatbelt doesnt work anymore. i have a 1990 accord lx 5-speed and it used to get stuck have way and know it wont recline at all. is it a bad fuse or the computer? i disconnected the seatbelt...


If both passengers and drivers side retractable belts have stopped moving, then it's likely the controller that's located under the passengers seat has gone bad. If only one side has stopped retracting and moving then that side motor has probably gone bad.

How much air pressure for the rear shocks on a 1982 Honda Golwing GL1100


Just enough pressure that the front and rear of the motorcycle drop together , when you bounce on the seat. If the front drops first when you bounce it might wash out on a corner. If the backdrops first when you bounce on the seat , the rear will tend to skid out on a corner. Set your front and rear shocks to drop together , that is best for extreme riding conditions (you never know when an extreme riding conditions will surprise you.)

Rear air ride is flat on 95 deville....what do i


the first thing is the fuses. i've seen many of these that the rear air shocks are bad but customer doesnt know and the pump runs until it burns out,after checking the fuses start the car and listen under the hood for the pump to turn on, if pump turns on then check shocks for leaks, also you would have to make sure the pump is producing air as it runs and the last thing is the level sensor located under the rear of car.

Hard starting;has stock jets.


Install a new stock spark plug after getting the compression checked and the valve clearances checked. Assuming good compression, use the choke when cold starting but don't flood the engine. Clean the air filter? If, when running, the bike dies when the throttle is turned, remove the jet needle from the throat of the carb and move the clip on the needle down one, possibly two, notches. This will richen the low end mix.
