Hello, try changing the air filter, spark plugs and leads. Get a manual and check the timing with a timing light. Make sure that the fuel is clean and the filters are replaced. A weak battery can cause a lot of power problems also. They are a good model and worth looking after. Try those things and if all else fails, you may have to take it to a mechanic. I hope I have helped.

Jerking at 120km/hour

Check motor mounts and transmission mounts

Also check the air tube (TOP AND BOTTOM) for hairline crack.

A worn motor mount can cause excessive vibration and damage the air inlet tube.

My vw Golf 4 1998 model, engine 1.8 speed sensor is dead. now temporarily i would like to know if i have to drive 120km/h, what rpm do i have to drive at using the rpm meter?

roughly if you are doing 3000rpm you will be doing approx. 100 klms/hr or 60 mph at 120km/hr you would be around 3200rpms.; Remember this will be in o/drive or 5th

When you drive between 100-120km/hr the vibration get very bad but when you drive after 120km/hr

If the vibration is related to speed, and goes away at different speeds higher and lower, it is likely to be a wheel balance problem. Have the wheels balanced at a tyre shop. If it is under braking only, the brake discs are warped.

VW golf1citi 1.4i kick out gear no.5 when I drive fast .why?

4 to 5th gear synchronizer may be defective however considering the car is only a couple years old try bringing it to a transmission shop and ask them to check and readjust the shift linkage, if there is no adjustment there may just be a worn out or defective plastic bushing, some of these transmissions have internal shift rods and bushings that can wear prematurely. This is a job for a transmission shop the car may still be under warranty bring it to the dealer first to determine if it is under warranty then you won't have to pay as much if anything at all.

Yamaha ybr 125 top speed

Hi les
Not much to start with here unfortunatly mate. A free flow muffler will help top end speed, change the factory airbox to a K&N style pod air filter, other than that, hugging the tank at top speed :) If you do change these parts, you may also need to increase the main jet size to richen up the mixture for better tuning of the motor with the better flowing parts. This bike has a top speed of 100kmp and produces 10 hp, so you may only expect to get at best less than 1 extra neddy, and perhaps another 5 km/hr.... I suggest upgrading to a bigger machine of you feel the need for speed :)
If its 125's you are into, test drive a Honda CBR 125R 6 speed fuel injected 13.4 horsepower, and good for 120km/hr

Peugeot 307 model 2005 its speed does not exeed 140 km / hour why ?

depends on your model and engine. mine does on empty motorway max. 150 km/h and on hill/slop upwards 120km/h. If you let reprogram your ecu for performance may be you'll gain more speed (google it for ecu reprogramming and you'll find more infos).
