Adjusting the valves simple to do pull the spark plug and the 2 inspection covers top of the head.remove the 2 inspection plugs lower left side engine cover small round one and the larger one. Use a i believe a 14 mm deep socket with a 3/8 breaker bar and rotate the crankshaft counter clockwise watch the rear rocker arm go down as it starts to come up look in the small inspection hole if you have a flashlight rotate it slowly until you see a line with the t mark before it in the small hole stop it there that is top dead center then you can set your valve settings.

Loud ticking valves on 1986 xl 250


It is possible that your valves need to be adjusted or as a possible cheep fix for now, try to put in thicker grade oil to quite them down, see if that helps. If not , it is probably need valve adjustment. Let me know.

How do i get the seat of of 1982 185s enduro i just bought it icant find a pull cable or a lever


NICE BIKE, AS FAR AS I CAN REMEMBER IT IS HELD ON WITH 2 BOLTS, UNDER THE REAR MUDGUARD, ONE ON EACH SIDE, REMOVE THESE BOLTS LIFT UP THE BACK OF THE SEAT AND PULL THE SEAT BACKWARDS AWAY FROM THE BIKE, THE EARLY ONES HAD THE BOLTS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE FRAME, IF YOUR SEAT HAS A PLASTIC BASE I THINK YOU WILL FIND THE BOLTS AS PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED UNDER THE REAR MUDGUARD.

Will run for a little while and then die


check fuel filter, pull off and remove carb and have it soaked in solvent. Then make proper adjustments after reinstalled. Also use a feeler guage and adjust valves. Also check spark from coil. Coil or stator could be weak. Check blow-by valves and air cleaner restriction

Valve adjustment for 2004 HD sportster XL 883


You have the same model & year as mine - which has Hydraulic lifters as standard. My advice is a) leave 'em alone until b) You've bought a Haynes manual for the Sportster series - which tells you everything you need to know about this bike.
