Usually, a rapid or immediate loss of power is indicative of a major component failure on an engine...and its something you should consider. Some tell tale signs, smoke out of the exhaust (note the color); or severe noises like loud banging and knocking- time for a major engine repair / over-haul.

On the other hand, perhaps what is happening is just coincidental to some other problem that was already in the making and was exacerbated when you snapped open the throttle.

Check the gas flow from the tank through the delivery system and filter- check the fuel shut-off valve, make sure it's fully open and that it is free of any clogs which would prevent the full flow of gas to the carburetor. Check the carburetor, see if the float bowl is full of gas; if necessary, check for a faulty fuel pump.

Another remote possibility is stale gas- was the bike sitting in storage for a while or did you use gas from a can that was lying around in storage...especially if it is of an ethanol blend that absorbs moisture.

Check the electrical system for ground shorts, spark plug cables for any deterioration and intermittent spark, check the CDI for either a weak, no-spark or verify a strong spark; and so-forth.

If everything is so far okay, inspect the engine oil; it should look smooth, glossy, and somewhat transparent. and run some compression tests.

Best regards.

My 95 tahoe has an occasional ticking noise, loss of oil pressure at idle and loss of power


Prognosis is really bad, hate to tell you. Ticking comes from the valve lifters, losing lubrication due to lack of pressure and running dry. At redlights, when revs are at idle, oil pressure drops a lot, and engine really suffers. Have the vehicle taken immediately to a shop for proper diagnose and to see if engine can still be saved. The loss of power comes from the valves not actuating properly. Hydraulic lifters need oil at a decent pressure to "charge" , and if not charged, they will stay compressed, ruining valve lifting operation.

Hi, I owned a 2011 Trek 7.6FX. So far the bike has been good and in stock condition but I was wondering: 1. If I could use a fatter tires like LT2 or LT3 if I were to hit the track. The 700x28c...


"Track"??? Do you mean "trail", as in REAL off-road rocks-n-roots singletrack?

Ah, the 'compromise' bike dilemma. This is NOT a mountain bike frame nor are the wheels designed for hard hits. But you could try to make it work for light-duty trails.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicycle_wheel

1. They make all kinds of rubber for 29ers which use the same rim size. Search for 29er tires.

The frame and fork may limit how large a tire will have clearance. Being totally stiff (unsuspended) the off-road ride would be rough by today's MTB standards. Think: loose fillings and blurred vision, plus a lot of standing to survive the ride. That takes energy. But then there are those who have intentionally bought 'niners without suspension for some reason.

A REAL mountain bike would be a better choice, just as a REAL road bike might be for that activity if sustained speed is ever a going to be a goal.

2. Avid's make good brakes AND levers. Which end is the problem, I wonder. Pads also play a major part in stopping power.

This is a search and find type of problem. Check all wiring, especially if the generator has a low oil cut off switch. Check the wiring to that. Also, check carburetor linkage and for any springs that may have come off. Check the linkage to the governor on the engine to make sure the linkage is not binding.

06 Road King Classice shuts off when in 4th gear beloe 50mph


It's normal for the check engine light to take from 0 to a couple seconds to turn off. The computer runs a system check. Put an oil pressure gauge on the bike and watch it closely. If your pressure drops when the bike loses power, the engine may be locking up from lack of oil. Another possibility is your lean-angle cut-off switch is defective. The switch cuts power to the bike in case you lay it down. Harley also has had problems with their fuel injection system losing power for no apparent reason.

I have a 2002 kawasaki prairie 650. i think i have a blown head gasket on the rear cyclinder. how can i be sure it is a blown head gasket?


Check the seal behind your water impeller there are o rings back there if one of them goes bad you will leak antifreeze into oil, your impeller is run by the oil pump i believe, you should not see oil in the water also your bike will run fine but when hot will foul the plug with water look for white smoke sometimes and the smell of anti freeze on start up
i have a 400 4x4 doing the same thing new piston rings and top end now lossing water but runs great oil looks real thin
took to the dealer to fix this week will let you know how i make out.
