HOW TO EASILY OIL A MOTORCYCLE CHAIN WITH NO MAIN STAND


If there is no main stand on your motorbike it can be a problem sometimes, not only do side stands dig into soft ground & warm tarmac they also make it awkward to oil the drive chain !

A simple way around this is to get either :-
A piece of strong piece of wood about an inch square ( or in diameter) or
A strong hammer or mallet or
A small trolley jack handle or similar preferably with rubber or taped ends

Whatever you use it must be about an inch (or more) longer than from the ground to the right hand end of the rear spindle (axle) or underside of the right hand swinging arm, WHILE THE BIKE LEANS on its side stand: For the very few bikes that have a side stand on the right, read left hand end of rear spindle

All you have to do is raise the rear wheel slightly by pivoting the weight of the bike on its front wheel & side stand

On medium to large bikes this means getting someone else to position themself on the side stand side of the bike, where they should put 1 foot against the side stand & reach over the bike to grab a good purchase point near the rear wheel, grab the nearest handlebar end with the other hand & pivot the bike forwards on its front wheel & side stand
This will lift the rear wheel a few inches so that your prop can be placed upright between the ground & your selected point on the bike

Spin the rear wheel by hand whilst applying non fling chain lubrication to both edges of your bikes chain

SIMPLE
EFFECTIVE
NO NEED TO CARRY A PADDOCK STAND IN YOUR RUCKSACK

Ride safe

I hope this helps (if so give good feedback please)

My kick stand fell off while riding. Not sure of all that was lost or how it goes back on. Any suggestions?


Hi Steve, Well hopefully not much, look underneath frame and see whats left, here is a complete list of parts. Anchor plate held to the frame by a bolt that screws into a threded spacer, a solid pin, cotter pin and washer . Then there is the kickstand and its bumper witch is held in place by a bolt, a catch, and a pivot block. A kickstand spring that attaches to the anchor plate at one end the other end goes to the kickstand. Good luck

Harley davidson kickstand diagram


No diagram but could get one from Harley parts department or maybe this will help:

For removal block the motorcycle underneath the frame so both wheels are raised off the ground and then remove the cotter pin and washer from the pin and unhook the spring from the jiffy stand and anchor plate and pull the pin from between the frame tubes and then the jiffy stand and the pivot block will drop out together as one piece.
To reinstall the jiffy stand put the pivot block and jiffy the stand assembly between the frame tubes, install the pin through frame tubes and pivot block from the back towards the front and secure it with a new washer and cotter pin and then attach the spring to the anchor plate (the hook on spring will face up) and the jiffy stand. Ensure that the jiffy stand works properly before using it or relying on it to hold up the bike.

How do you pull the chain break apart on a poulan chainsaw 2150 and repair it.


The brake is a saftey item on the saw and should only be repaired by a quailified fitter, however if you should decide to do it yourslf that is down to you, the brake is a so called knee link brake, start by removing the brake from the saw, once removed activate the brake by pushing the hand guard forward untill you hear the brake come on, now remove the allen screw in the hand guard pivot ( do not remove the c clip in the side of the hand guard ), tap the pivot collers out from either side and remove the hand guard, remove the cross head screws securing the spring cover, BE AWARE THERE IS A COMPRESSION SPRING UNDER HERE, eye protection should be worn, with the cover off, pry out the spring, remover the small pin securing the knee link mechanism, using a small punch tap out the roll pin from the other side of the cover that secures the anchor end of the band, it should now come away, remove the cross head screw holding the band to the knee link mechanism. You can now replace the band, refit the the knee link to the new band, re fit to the machine, tap the roll pin back into the cover to secure the anchor end of the band, re fit the knee link pin, re fit the spring ( be carefull ) re fit the spring cover, place the hand guard back on the cover, use a suitable tapperd punch to insert through the hand guard and cover to hold it in place, now pull the hand guard fully back to load the brake, remove the punch and re fit the pivot collers and allen screw. Make sure the brake now functions properley.

Need repair guide for rear brakes 1990 E350 Ford


Ford Full-Size Vans 1989-1996 Repair Guide
Brake Shoes - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Light Duty Systems
  1. Raise and support the vehicle and remove the wheel and brake drum from the wheel to be worked on.
If you have never replaced the brakes on a van before and you are not too familiar with the procedures involved, only dissemble and assemble one side at a time, leaving the other side intact as a reference during reassembly.
  1. Install a clamp over the ends of the wheel cylinder to prevent the pistons of the wheel cylinder from coming out, causing loss of fluid and much grief.
  2. Contract the brake shoes by pulling the self-adjusting lever away from the starwheel adjustment screw and turn the starwheel up and back until the pivot nut is drawn onto the starwheel as far as it will come.
  3. Pull the adjusting lever, cable and automatic adjuster spring down and toward the rear to unhook the pivot hook from the large hole in the secondary shoe web. Do not attempt to pry the pivot hook from the hole.
  4. Remove the automatic adjuster spring and the adjusting lever.
  5. Remove the secondary shoe-to-anchor spring with a brake tool. (Brake tools are very common implements and are available at auto parts stores). Remove the primary shoe-to-anchor spring and unhook the cable anchor. Remove the anchor pin plate.
  1. Remove the cable guide from the secondary shoe.
  2. Remove the shoe hold-down springs, shoes, adjusting screw, pivot nut, and socket. Note the color of each hold-down spring for assembly. To remove the hold-down springs, reach behind the brake backing plate and place one finger on the end of one of the brake hold-down spring mounting pins. Using a pair of pliers, grasp the washer type retainer on top of the hold-down spring that corresponds to the pin which you are holding. Push down on the pliers and turn them 90° to align the slot in the washer with the head on the spring mounting pin. Remove the spring and washer retainer and repeat this operation on the hold down spring on the other shoe.
  3. Remove the parking brake link and spring. Disconnect the parking brake cable from the parking brake lever.
  4. After removing the rear brake secondary shoe, disassemble the parking brake lever from the shoe by removing the retaining clip and spring washer.
To install:
  1. Assemble the parking brake lever to the secondary shoe and secure it with the spring washer and retaining clip.
  2. Apply a light coating of Lubriplate®, or equivalent, at the points where the brake shoes contact the backing plate.
  3. Position the brake shoes on the backing plate, and install the hold-down spring pins, springs, and spring washer type retainers. On the rear brake, install the parking brake link, spring and washer. Connect the parking brake cable to the parking brake lever.
  4. Install the anchor pin plate, and place the cable anchor over the anchor pin with the crimped side toward the backing plate.
  5. Install the primary shoe-to-anchor spring with the brake tool.
  1. Install the cable guide on the secondary shoe web with the flanged holes fitted into the hole in the secondary shoe web. Thread the cable around the cable guide groove.
  2. Install the secondary shoe-to-anchor (long) spring. Be sure that the cable end is not cocked or binding on the anchor pin when installed. All of the parts should be flat on the anchor pin. Remove the wheel cylinder piston clamp.
  3. Apply Lubriplate®, or equivalent, to the threads and the socket end of the adjusting starwheel screw. Turn the adjusting screw into the adjusting pivot nut to the limit of the threads and then back off 1 / 2 turn.
Interchanging the brake shoe adjusting screw assemblies from one side of the vehicle to the other would cause the brake shoes to retract rather than expand each time the automatic adjusting mechanism is operated. To prevent this, the socket end of the adjusting screw is stamped with an "R" or an "L" for "RIGHT" or "LEFT". The adjusting pivot nuts can be distinguished by the number of lines machined around the body of the nut; one line indicates left-hand nut and two lines indicate a right-hand nut.
  1. Place the adjusting socket on the screw and install this assembly between the shoe ends with the adjusting screw nearest to the secondary shoe.
  2. Place the cable hook into the hole in the adjusting lever from the backing plate side. The adjusting levers are stamped with an R (right) or a L (left) to indicate their installation on the right or left-hand brake assembly.
  3. Position the hooked end of the adjuster spring in the primary shoe web and connect the loop end of the spring to the adjuster lever hole.
  4. Pull the adjuster lever, cable and automatic adjuster spring down toward the rear to engage the pivot hook in the large hole in the secondary shoe web.
  5. After installation, check the action of the adjuster by pulling the section of the cable guide and the adjusting lever toward the secondary shoe web far enough to lift the lever past a tooth on the adjusting screw starwheel. The lever should snap into position behind the next tooth, and release of the cable should cause the adjuster spring to return the lever to its original position. This return action of the lever will turn the adjusting screw starwheel one tooth. The lever should contact the adjusting screw starwheel one tooth above the centerline of the adjusting screw.
If the automatic adjusting mechanism does not perform properly, check the following:
  1. Check the cable and fittings. The cable ends should fill or extend slightly beyond the crimped section of the fittings. If this is not the case, replace the cable.
  2. Check the cable guide for damage. The cable groove should be parallel to the shoe web, and the body of the guide should lie flat against the web. Replace the cable guide if this is not so.
  3. Check the pivot hook on the lever. The hook surfaces should be square with the body on the lever for proper pivoting. Repair or replace the hook as necessary.
  4. Make sure that the adjusting screw starwheel is properly seated in the notch in the shoe web.

Heavy Duty Systems
  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel and drum.
  1. Remove the parking brake lever assembly retaining nut from behind the backing plate and remove the parking brake lever assembly.
  2. Remove the adjusting cable assembly from the anchor pin, cable guide and adjusting lever.
  3. Remove the brake shoe retracting springs.
  4. Remove the brake shoe hold-down spring from each shoe.
  5. Remove the brake shoes and adjusting screw assembly.
  6. Disassemble the adjusting screw assembly.
  7. Clean the ledge pads on the backing plate. Apply a light coat of Lubriplate®, or equivalent, to the ledge pads (where the brake shoes rub the backing plate).

How do you remove the spring clip on the rear view mirror?


Most rear view mirrors are secured on a pivot point to an arm and that arm is then secured on a pivot point to the base. The base is then attached to the windshield anchor either via a screw (metal housing) or it will have a lil tab (plastic housing) that you pull back and slide the entire assembly off of the windshield anchor

Bike stand doesn't return


Yes , it may require some light lubricating at around the stand but first you will need to clean up throughly around the stand fittings better to use WD40 and thn some mineral oil as lubricant.
Not bad too to check the spring of its tension!
Hope this helps!
