On my 92 harley... which years other then 1992... can i use the complete kickstand including the bracket on mine....thank you

Well, that depends on what model your bike is. You said a 92, but a 92 what. Your best source of information is going to be an aftermarket catalog. Look up the kick stand for your bike and then see which bike they list as it fitting besides yours. Try Custom Chrome's online catalog.

Good Luck

Before storage last year everything was fine with my 2000 Goldwing. When taking the bike out of storage for the season everything seemed ok until my first ride. I discovered that the rear brake pedal has...

Just bleed the brake system. That will take the air out of the system it is a common problem when you let a goldwing sit.
First bleed the front left brake then bleed the rear brake they both work off the brake pedal.
When you are done with that bleed the front right brake with the hand brake lever,
Get a service manual for your wing it explains how to do many services and it will save you money.

A 93 flhs loosing charge in less than 2 hour

sounds like your battery is not charging from the engine. Most likely the cause of this is, a faulty Rectifier.
I suggest you charge your battery up, put it in the bike and start it up. Using a Volt meter, check the reading, to see if charge is going into the battery, reading should be about 14V with a little rev of the engine. If the reading remains at 12V, then ther is no charge going in.
If you have charge going in to your battery at idle, 13.5 - 14Volts,
Then i suggest your battery is faulty.

No power to bike/new charged battery/is there

The pre-2000 models came with circuit breakers instead of fuses. They look like little metal cans that are about 1/2" wide by about 1 1/2" long. When a short circuit causes the current draw to exceed the rating of the circuit breaker, it will break with a slightly audible "ping". After a few minutes, it will reset itself. If the short circuit is still present, it will simply start the cycle all over again.

Now, there is a main circuit breaker. Usually it's under the seat and it's rated at 30 amps. It could have been replaced with a fuse by a previous owner if the bike was purchased used.

Now, at the battery or the starter, you should have an additional wire that supplies power to the entire bike. The large battery cable connects to the postive side of the battery and then goes down to the starter. Your bike should have the Nippondenso type starter on it as the '88 year model was the last to have the seperate starter solenoid and Hitachi starter. At one or the other places, the starter or the battery, there should be a large single wire connected along with the battery cable. This wire is the what I call the "accessories" power wire. It must be connected or there will be no power to the rest of the bike. If you failed to reconnect it at the battery, this could be your problem.

If you will contact me directly and tell me you need a schematic for your '89 FLHS, I can send it to you e-mail.

Good Luck

I have been ill for over 2 years and my2007 has been stuck in the shed. it had its first service, but has not been serviced since, it has only done 1600 mls. will this affect the service history.?

Putting a bike up for a couple years without taking some precautions precautions isn't really good for them but it all depends on the storage conditions. Old gas can coat and clog openings in the carbs, rust forms on the steering tubes, paint fades in sun exposure, gaskets and such things dry out and leak, etc. If you have had her serviced and she runs and rides well thendo not sweat it. Hope you are back on your feet and able to enjoy your bike so get out there and feel the breeze on your face.

Basically you just have a relatively low milage bike that is three years old. If you are concerned about waranty issues (is it still under warranty?) most waranty maintrence requirements are scheduled by miles so you are probably are still okay. If you looking to sell it just tell the potential buyers you got sick and were unable to ride it. You can say I just had her serviced but that is about all you should ethically feel to say. Any buyer should test drive the bike and make their own decision.

Bike backfires,dies,restarts runs fine

your carbs are dirty. and probably need to be balanced also... bring the bike bto a garage and have them cleaned by a profesional.... also after market pipes don't give your bike the proper back pressure .. that can mess up your carbs timing

Starter will not engage-soleniod just clicks-

I had this problem last year. I was told by a reputable Yamaha service technician that I could "jump" the leads on the solenoid to unstick it. It worked. However, in retrospect, I wish I would have just replaced the solenoid, given that it is a relatively cheap component (~$40 new). Since then, I had the sticking and clicking problem again this past March right at the beginning of the season, and during my attempt to repeat the success, I shorted out the bike because I got careless about what my disconnected wires touched on the bike. Shame on me. So I'd recommend replacing the solenoid.
