You do not say what model you have but this may not matter. What you need is a heel toe shifter. You downshift with your toe and up shift with your heel. Kuryakyn may make one that fits your bike. But you may be able to fit one off off a Road Star if the spline is the same. The only other options would be to have a welder cut and extend the lever (If it is iron or aluminum.).

No second gear


The 2nd gear lockout is, a mechanical speed sensing mechanism. It doesn't care if the engine is running. You bypass it by scooting the bike forward, about 5-6 mph, while shifting the transmission into 2nd gear.

Stand on the left side of the bike, with the ignition "ON" and the transmission in neutral.
3 With your right foot on the ground, behind your left foot: place your left foot on the left foot peg, with your toe under the shifter; squeeze in the clutch.
*4.Scoot the bike forward about 5-6 mph, with your right foot, and shift the transmission into 2nd gear, with your left foot. If you accidentally go into 3rd, or some higher gear, you can easily shift back down into 2nd, without further movement of the bike.
5.To start the bike: Apply the choke if the engine is cold. Squeeze in the clutch and push the bike forward, both feet on the ground, about 8-12 mph. Release the clutch until the engine start
As soon as the engine starts: squeeze in the clutch and shift the bike into neutral.

Hi i have a beko wm5101w washing machine and it shakes alot when on the spin cycle i have tryed ajusting the feet but nothing seems to be working to stop it

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Although you say you have tried adjusting the feet I would recommend you try my method to make absolutely certain!
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine, even when empty, has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal drum suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

I need to upgrade the ram memory in my pc so how do i put the new one it

Hi, this is quite straight forward. Either side of your memory you a little leaver, push these downward toward the motherboard. Be carefull when handling memory sticks, only hold on the edges, as they are sensitive to static. Check to see what memory type you have and once you have purchased your new memory, repeat the proceedure. You have to push quite hard to get the memory to sit in slot properly, but you will see the two small leavers come back up into the lock position. Ensure you have the memory round the right way when fitting.

How do I change on my Buell M2 cyclone?

First be sitting on the bike, what you will need do do is hold onto the handel bars and start the beast, let it warm for a minut or two.

Once you have done this you are almost redy to change :-)

Ok heres here it get interesting, youll need to rest you left foot on the left foot peg what ever you do don't get confused and put the wrong foot on the wrong foot peg or somthing really bad might happen when you make the change!!.
Ok assuming that you've done that youll need to pull the clutch in, once youve done that gentley but firmley stomp on the gear leaver (Its the one on the lefthand side of the bike just infront of the left hand foot peg)

OK, you've now made the first change!!!! from here youll want to gentley release that clutch, once you feel the BUELL start to move your gonna wanna give it a handfull of throttle whilst ajusting your left foot to be directley underneath the BUELL, once you foot is inline quickley grab that clutch in again and lift you foot thats underneath gear leaver, rince and repeat :-)

they can be a bit touchy on gears start the bike in first holding the clutch down so that you dont jolt forward lol and try and put it in nutaral but only move the gear leaver a slight bit upwards if no luck then put it into second and try the other way by putting it down only slightly. if nothing then you could do what i had to do and ajust the gear leaver nut by taking the leaver of and moving it anti clockwise a few notches and make sure it gose back on the teeth or you risk weering them down give that a shot. if nothing let me know

No drive

Hi! Brake issue should clear with use however as it is a floating caliper you may want to strip it and cleaning out any **** from behind the pads, alternativly and being carefull use a quality rubber mallet and tap the outside of the caliper a few times apply the brake and do it again until the resistance is lost when pushing the bike forward and applying then releasing the front brake.
Sounds like clutch problem regarding No gears, if it has a duplex or even triplex chain these can break. If direct drive then clutch centre may have detatched leaving plates in limbo. if the plates were stuck together you would get gears. Without engine running push into any gear rock bike forward and backward if engine turns then keep clutch lever in and keep rocking this may free em off if not take cluctch cover off and release them.
Hope this helPS! Good luck!

How to fold a quinny buzz

Hi, you can download the manual from the quinny website, but as a quick guide, the best I found was - first stand with your foot against the front wheel (so it doesnt move forward) then press the grey buttons on either side of the chassis and at the same time draw the frame downwards towards your foot, please remember you can only fold down with the seat in place if the seat is facing forward (ie baby facing outwards) it wont fold down with the seat facing mum, there are also demos on you tube, hope ive helped and not been too complicated :)
