Hello.

The tire has to make contact with the pavement or other hard surface in order for the bicycle to actually move.

If this does not solve the problem, please write back.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do i raise handle bars on huffy 18 inch bike


not knowing the model,, look down at the gooseneck, ( the piece that holds the handlebars) you should have a nut or a recessed allen head right in the middle of that piece,, loosen it until it spins freely, But don't completely remove it,, grab the bars on each side and work then back and forth as you straddle the front tire with your legs to keep the tire from moving, Pull up as your doing that and you should be fine

1991 harley ulra classic has stock heads but adjustable pushrods with no colors. how do i adjust before firing motor


Hello
I hope this helps out.
the 2 long push rods are the exhaust and the 2 short ones are the intake.
jack up the bike so the rear tire is off the ground.
put in 5th gear so you can turn over the motor by turning the back tire.
it takes 2 people, one to turn the tire and the other to be looking at the lifter to make sure it is at its lowest point.
you should have all push rods in but very loose.
start with the rear exhaust and then rear intake then front intake then front exhaust.
turn the motor over with back tire, looking at the lifter, watch to see it get to its lowest point.
when it is at its lowest point, stop turning the tire.
now tighten up the push rod so you can spin it but no up and down movement.
now tighten to push rod specs(factory or aftermarket have # of turns or flats to turn)
yours should be 3 turns, but check your manual specs or call dealer and ask how many turns for that year just to make sure.
after 3 turns the push rod will be tight.You have to wait about 15-20 minutes for the lifter to bleed down. try to spin the push rod after 20 minutes. if its hard to spin, wait 20 minutes more, if its hard to spin then you may have over tightened the push rod.
if the push rod spins freely but no up and down movement, then the lifter has bled down and your ready to move to the next push rod.
repeat this process with each push rod.
once done, make sure the spark plugs are out and turn the motor over a few times, as the motor turns over, have your buddy stop when you see a lifter at its lowest point and spin the push rod.
it should spin free with no up and down movement. check them all.
thats it.

just remember to make sure the number of turns for the type of push rods you have.
call the manufacturer who makes your push rods, or call the dealer if they are harley davidsion.

Note: there is basically zero lash once the bike is running, because the oil takes up the clearance.

Hi, my daughter pricess bike won't ride. am not what is wrong. newly prchsed and assemble. please can you help?


will the pedals move forward? they should cause the chain to move and the crank in the back to cause the wheel to spin, if this isnt happening, look at the chain and make sure its correctly on both sprockets, if the pedals still wont spin, they may be too tight on the crank.

Bicycles....? How have bicycles in the years prior been improved in terms of motion?


The below are improvements over the years. One thing to remember that a HUGE % of the energy the rider puts into moving forward is used to overcome wind resistance.

In terms of motion....

Lighter overall. Lighter bikes overall, lighter wheels - easier to spin up and keep rolling.

More efficent bearings all around/ wheels cranks, etc.

Better design of frames/bars, etc. Positions the rider better on the bike to convert his energy into forward motion Also - better positions the rider on the bike to cut the wind better - lower rider resistance.

better tires, skinner tires - Less rolling restiance -

Starter clutch not turning engine.


If the battery & starter motor are good & the starter spins rapidly then the starter clutch will need parts or complete replacement
If the starter spins rapidly only with no load (removed) then either the crank / pistons are seized or the clutch
