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.

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.

I a have pulsar 200dtsi model its heavy I was thinking can the body parts be done in fiber body to light-weight and may be even changing the exhaust

Hi, Stanley in 1968 my first Honda was a CL175 street scrambler I weighed 130 lbs. my bike weighed 439 lbs. your Bajaj is a very light bike changing the sheet metal for fiberglass or plastic would be extremely expensive and weight savings 3-5 lbs. the exhaust is a toss up usually the lightweight systems are priced by the exotic material they are made from very pricey $500-$700 not too sure why you want your bike to be lighter but if you leave your answer in the comment section perhaps I can point you in the right direction, for more information about your question and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the links below.

Follow the spark plug wire (the big heavy round one) to the end of the head - the spark plug will be at the end of it.

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...


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
