Assuming your bike has carbs, drain the carbs. Clean the air filter, install new spark plugs. don't go nuts twisting the throttle. Too much and the engine will flood.

Well,...either someone has toyed with the baffles inside the mufflers,or they have rusted,and are starting to come apart. My reccomendation would be to buy a set of aftermarket slip-ons,or a full exhaust system.Good Luck!

Starter motor stuck on had to dissconnect the battory to stop it off switch ect did not work. if i touch the battory with the lead it continues to turn over

If your starter will not stop turning over then your starter solenoid contact bar is stuck in the closed position. It should only close when you hit the starter button. With the solenoid out of the bike check the solenoid battery terminals for continuity. If there is continuity across the large terminals, replace the starter solenoid

I think the battery needs changed, the bikes trying to satart the its seams the batters dead but the lights stay on

if the lights on the dash dont go dim whe trying to start then the battery is fine, it will be a problem with the starter motor. try and bump start the bike in second gear and it will charge the battery up if the voltage is low.
