SOURCE: Adjusted gear shifter incorrectly. Cannot locate neutral.

Ok.

Remove the rod altogether and get the lever in the position you want.

Once you're happy with that, pick up the rod and look at it. The threads at each end are the oppsite of each-other. One is right-handed (you turn it clockwise to tighten it up), the other is left-handed.

Take the two small locking nuts and wind them on to the correct ends of the connecting rod. DO NOT force anything if it feels like it doesn't want ot go, as you will cross-thread things and the assembly will be kaput.

Offer the rod up to the connecter at the foot pedal and the shift arm and gently screw in each end at the same time. Make sure that the threads match!! ie left handed thread on the right, and vice-versa. Once happy with the position, tighten up the locking nuts and off you go.

If you get stuck, re-post here and I'll help you further.

Ride safe!! :)

SOURCE: my bike keeps cutting out???

Do the following to see if these fix the problem, before messing with the hoses.
1) It could be that the idle jet in the carb is blocked. Check that out.
2)
It could be a blocked fuel breather. Check that out.
3) The choke migh'nt be stuck on. If the engine is working with the choke pulled on all the way, with high revs, it's possibly an idle problem. Readjust the idle setting.
4) Check to make sure the chamber is not flooding. If it is, adjust the valves.
5) Your single spark plug is sooted up and not sparking. Remove it and clean the head, and replace.

SOURCE: swingning arm moving all over the place is it a

Replacing the swingarm bearings isn't that big of a job, but you will need a special tool to remove the nut that secures the swingarm pivot bolt. Then, once you get it off, you may need a hydraulic press to remove and re-insert the pivot bearings.
Consult with your local dealer and find out how much they charge to do it, then decide if you want to tackle it on your own. Keep in mind that if they charge for, let's say, two hours worth of labor (for example) - it may take you (at least) twice as long to do in your own garage, having never done it before.

2004 Honda CRF 230 F 130 psi compression cold@


Hi, Michaelhare to perform a proper compression test you need a pressure gauge either threaded or push in. You will get a higher more accurate reading when the engine is at normal operating temperature along with burnt fingers if you are not protected or careful, cold testing works just fine and it the method I use 99% of the time. If your bike has cams and valves you need to make sure your valve clearance is within book specs Always blow forced air around the spark plug before you remove it to eliminate any uninvited contamination from getting inside the cylinder. Install the compression gauge, twist the throttle grip to the wide open position and kick or hit the starter button long enough for the engine to turn over 5-6 times. Record the reading and repeat the process 3 times to get the average reading. Single cylinder engines must have a minimum of 100 PSI anything less call a Priest for Last Rites, it's time for a top end overhaul. Multi-cylinder engines must have no more than a 10% difference between each cylinder, for you high- performance ******* no more than 10 lbs. per cylinder. To run on today's fuel most bikes have pistons with compression ratio's designed to give acceptable performance using an 87 octane graded fuel, this means the average compression readings on most bikes will be 125-150 PSI. I have gotten readings of 200+ on some big inch V-Twins and Thumpers but these are rare #'s and require high octane fuel to eliminate cylinder ringing or "PING" For more information about your issue and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need for viewing or printing please click on the blue links below.

I have a 2008 sportster which I bought used. The kickstand spring was missing. I bought a new one from the HD dealer and installed the spring but the kickstand still will not retract all the way and...


If the bike has been dropped, the stand could easilly be slightly bent.
Put the bike on a paddock stand and take a closer look. It will become obvious as soon as you can get underneath with the stand.
Ride safe.
Nice bike!

2008 ktm sxf still pulls along even with the clutch pulled in


1.If the bike has been sitting for some time the clutch plates may be dry- remove plates and soak in oil overnight.
2. Check steel clutch disks are not warped
3. Clutch has nine friction discs, 8 larger ones and one smaller(the inner or first one you install). Inside this diameter of the ninth friction disc is whats called a judder spring, one flat and one concave, check that the concave faces inwards check that the flat one is installed first.
4. Bleed the clutch as per the manual, in reverse.
5. Check clutch throw with clutch cover off and clutch plates assembled. Watch the pressure plate for movement, should move around 3-5mm.
6. Try a 10W oil instead of 15W(Motul)
7.All else fails, **** the judder spring off! I did this on mine after days and days of rootin about trying to stop the bike walking forward in gear with the clutch in!! and it was much better! Judder spring is there I believe to make the clutch a bit smoother, didnt make any difference to the smoothness of my clutch but it stopped the bike walking forward in gear!
Hope this helps mate!
