Check to see if the steering column bearings are seized. Maybe try to jack it up and see what kind of resistance you have with it off the ground. Also, look for bound up brake hoses or bent steering arms.

I have a 450 Honda Foreman ES that won't shift down from 2 to neutral it will shift up but won't go down below 2 Have replaced the motor and the angle sensor with no change. Any suggestions


Could be the shifter solenoid. but most likely it's in the section where the shifter cable goes into. There is also 2 sensors on the top of it one forward and one reverse . I do believe that unit has a manual post coming out of the lower side of the engine on the left side when sitting on it. Put a socket on it and see if the bike will shift manually. If not then it's either the section with the 2 sensors on it or the mechanism inteernally itself.

Honda VTX 1300 pulls left


Hi, Les and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non-standard equipment on the front end such as heavy radio receivers extra lighting equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tires or improper front-rear tire combination.
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. The shock absorber is not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts. Torque to recommended specifications.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing end play.
9. Improperly vehicle alignment.
10. Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires are out-of-round or eccentric with the hub.
13. Rims and tires are out-of-true sideways.
14. Loose spokes.
15. Shock absorber improperly adjusted.

2004 honda 350 fourtrax exhaust seat loose in head. What years of honda 350 heads will fit a 2004


Do I take it the engine is already stripped to establish the fault. I've owned several Honda's and never seen this fault. If its in bits a good motorcycle engine shop could do it and recut the seat but only a search of parts books would tell you if Honda used a motorcycle head. Saying that, Honda do appear to use modified bike engines to power quads. New crank cases built onto a previous barrel and head.
Call a Honda specialist or a quad shop who may have already worked it out for themselves. Check out quad forums as well?

My 2003 model of Jaguar S type is suddenly turned extremely heavy with the steering wheel which i cannot turn more than a mere 5 degree. This happened after driving in snow and now it looks like i will...


Hi

It sounds like the power steering belt has snapped, if this is the case they are pretty cheap and I could see this happening in the cold weather so fingers crossed it is just that alternatively it could be the power steering pump or the power steering rack which are much more expensive.

there the 3 things to check besides the obvios power steering fluid level.

Hope this helps
Regards
Dan
