The left pedal keeps falling off. I use a wrench to reattach it and tighten it down, and then within five minutes of starting to use it, it starts to loosen and eventually (20 minutes or so) falls off. Any idea how I can get it to stay on?

    Just realized, I spoke imprecisely, it is the nut holding the left CRANK to the bolt in the hub of the wheel, that comes loose.

Try using "locktite" thread lock to help keep it from loosening. U can buy it at automotive or hardware stores.
Or use fingernail polish on the threads as a cheap substitute

Instructions
    • 1 Lift the CBR onto its center stand. Unlock the seat latch with the ignition key and remove the seat. Remove the clip screws from the top portion of both seat rail covers, positioned below the fuel tank and the seat, using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the seat rail covers away from the motorcycle's frame.
    • 2 Remove both bolts from the front of the fuel tank, using a socket wrench and a 10 mm socket. Lift the tank up and prop it open using the support rod on the motorcycle's frame. Reach under the tank and unplug the fuel pump's wiring connector and all three hoses from the bottom of the tank. Take note of hoses' locations before removing them for reinstallation purposes. Pull the hairpin clip out from the support rod's base. Unscrew the pivot bolt from the base of the fuel tank, using a 10 mm socket. Lift the fuel tank off of the motorcycle.

    • 3 Unscrew the air box's mounting bolt from the frame's right seat rail, using a 10 mm socket. Loosen the clamps securing the air box's flanges to the carburetors' inlets, using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the air box towards the rear of the motorcycle to separate its flanges from the carburetors.
    • 4 Loosen the clamps securing the carburetors to the motor's intake manifolds, using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the carburetors off of the motor and out through the left side of the motorcycle's frame. The carburetors will still be attached to the motorcycle by its throttle and choke cables. Loosen the choke and throttle cables' lock nuts, using a 10 mm wrench. Remove the cables.
    • 5 Hold the carburetors over a large container. Unscrew the drain screws on the side of each carburetor's float bowl, positioned at the very bottom of the carburetor, using a flat-head screwdriver. Allow the fuel trapped within the float bowl to drain completely, then tighten the drain screws.
    • 6 Flip the carburetor over, with the float bowls up, and place it on a clear work space. Unscrew the bolts from the float bowls, using a Phillips screwdriver, then pull the float bowls and their gaskets away from the carburetors.
    • 7 Unscrew the pilot jet from each carburetor, using a flat-head screwdriver. The pilot jet is placed to the left (with the carburetor facing you) of the main jet in the center of the carburetor. Screw a new pilot jet into place with a flat-head screwdriver.
    • 8 Reinstall the float bowls and their gaskets onto the carburetors. Tighten the float bowls' screws with a Phillips screwdriver. Reattach the throttle and clutch cables to the carburetors and tighten the cables' lock nuts with a 10 mm wrench. Slide the carburetors through the left side of the frame. Push the carburetors into the motor's intake manifolds. Tighten the intake manifolds' clamps with a Phillips screwdriver.
    • 9 Pull the air box against the carburetors and push the air box's flanges over the carburetors' inlets. Tighten the flanges' clamps with a Phillips screwdriver. Screw the air box's mounting bolt onto the frame's right seat rail, using a 10 mm socket.
    • 10 Lay the fuel tank onto the motorcycle's frame. Insert the tank's pivot bolt through the hinge at the base of the tank. Screw the pivot bolt's nut into place, using a 10 mm socket. Lift the tank up and reattach the tank support rod to the motorcycle's frame. Insert the hairpin clip into the support rod's base. Prop the tank up on the support rod. Plug the wiring connector into the fuel pump and reconnect all three hoses onto the bottom of the tank. Screw both mounting bolts onto the front of the fuel tank, using a 10 mm socket.
    • 11 Mount the seat rail covers onto the motorcycle's frame. Insert and tighten the covers' clip screws, using a Phillips screwdriver. Lay the seat onto the seat rails, then press the rear of the seat down until the seat latch locks into place.

Instructions
  1. Spark Plug and Sensors
    • 1 Park the motorcycle on its center stand. Remove the spark plug-wire cap from the plug by hand. Loosen and remove the spark plug from the cylinder head with a spark plug wrench.
    • 2 Gap the spark plug to 0.026 inches with a spark plug gap gauge. Reinstall the plug tightly in the cylinder head with the plug wrench. Reattach the plug-wire cap by hand.

    • 3 Detach the wire lead at the fuel sensor on the right side of the cylinder head by hand. Loosen and remove the sensor with a metric wrench. Clean the inner end of the sensor with spray cleaner. Reinstall the sensor securely with the wrench. Reattach the wire lead.
    • 4 Detach the wire lead at the exhaust sensor at the underside of the muffler by hand. Loosen and remove the sensor with the metric wrench. Clean the inner end of the sensor with spray cleaner and reinstall the sensor securely. Reattach the wire lead.
    Throttle and Carburetor
    • 5 Take a position where you can observe the throttle linkage at the left side of the carburetor. Twist the throttle grip at the handlebars slowly as you observe the action of the linkage.
    • 6 Tighten the cable adjuster at the top of the carburetor with a metric wrench in small increments so the linkage responds immediately as you open the throttle.
    • 7 Start the engine and allow it to warm up for three minutes. Locate the smaller idle-adjustment screw and the larger fuel-air adjustment screw at the right side of the carburetor. Turn the idle-adjustment screw to the right one full turn with a screwdriver.
    • 8 Turn the fuel-air adjustment screw to the right or left with a screwdriver as you listen to the engine's speed. Turning it too far either way slows the engine's speed. Find the point where the engine idles at the fastest speed.
    • 9 Allow the engine to idle. Turn the idle-adjustment screw to the left one full turn.

I can not get the peddle off the crank. peddle part number fc-m500 crank set shimano sg


You have to have a pedal wrench and they pedals have a right thread right side and a left thread the left side. The right side is the chain side, to tighten either one, you put the bike in front of you and turn the pedal wrench towards you to tighten, to loosen turn the wrench to the rear. This is very important, do it wrong and you strip your crank arms. Pedals are marked R for right side, L for left side. It is important to know this information. Most manuals do not tell you.

My left pedal is broken because it's really worn inside the pedal and I need to replace my pedals.


There are two thread sizes for pedals, make sure you get the right ones. Take the old one with you to the store.

You'll need a crank/pedal wrench to take the pedal off. The gap is too smal to get a normal size wrench in there, but you might get lucky.

Use some penetrating fluid on the thread and leave it overnight before you do it, as they are notorious for getting stuck on. Have a friend stand on the other pedal to keep it still, and undo it.

Tighten up the new one, remember the threads are backwards to normal tightening. Happy riding - vote for me please :)

Smart cycle pedal??


We had the same problem with the right pedal continually falling off. I purchased some "J.B. Weld" from Ace Hardware, applied it to the stud on the pedal, re-tightened it back on the sprocket arm and let it set 24 hours. This was over a month ago and it has not come off or loose. It gets peddled pretty furiously at times and still holds. The cost of the J.B. Weld which is in two small tubes, mixed together and applied is less than $7.00. I am once again my Grand-daughters hero....
