How to put the pegs on?

You need to have a BMX bike with a threaded axle. A bike with quick releases will not work.

The first thing you're going to want to do is go ahead and loosen the bolts on that side of the rim, take the bolts completely off, along with your spacers, pull them off and then you'll slide the peg onto the axle. And you're going to have to have an extension to get into the peg. The easiest way to get the peg on is to take it, put your bolt, your washer and then slide your peg into place on this, or you can put it on there and then you just slide it on, and then tighten your bolt back down, and that will hold your peg into place

Can i straighten the front forks up if I loosen the nut on the headstock, move the fork legs, and retighten the nut again? the bike is a VL800 k5.

Loosen the front fender, the axle retaining bolts, plus the upper and lower headstock bolts and nuts so that the whole assembly is free to align. Tighten the fender last. If that doesn't restore wheel alignment, you may have bent tubes that need straightening or replacement. Was the bike in a front-end wreck?

Where is the thermostat located on a 94 toy/4 cylider

Follow the top radiator hose from the radiator to where it attaches onto the engine. The thermostat is inside the housing that the hose attaches to. Remove the radiator hose at thermostat housing. Remove the housing. There are usually two bolts. The thermostat is inside. Scrape off all old gasket material and clean the housing. Install new thermostat and gasket. Be sure not to overtighten the bolts on the housing. The housing is usually cast metal and is easily cracked or broken if the bolts are overtightened. Hope this helps and best wishes.

My bars keep slipping.. I have a Kink Gap 09 - I tried tighting the bars using the 'X' technique, I tried putting saran rap in there.. Any other options? PS: The Stem might be stripped.. if that's...

Try using a strip of sanding cloth cut to fit in a medium grit with the sanding part folded so both surfaces; the bars and the clamp feel the sanding surface. Also look at the threads on the bolts that don't seem to be tightening. If this is an aluminum stem there is a good chance that you may have overtightened and stripped one or more. Hope not.
