What is a decent replacement rear derailleur for a Mongoose 26" Ledge 2.1 Mountain Bike?


Get the kind that has a lever shift instead of the grip shifter. The plastic part that holds the spring breaks easily. The lever shifter has been going strong on my bike for 6 years without a problem

Proper Bike Storage Tip


Proper Bike Storage.The best place to store a bike is inside. Shelter will protect it from thieves and the weather. Left outside, a good bike can rust and corrode to dangerous condition in less than a year. This is especially true if you live near the ocean where salt in the air is super corrosive. If your apartment is small, simply install a bike hook and hang your bike from a wheel. These hooks are cheap (about $3 at hardware and department stores) and they'll screw into any wood wall or stud in a plaster/sheetrock wall. Be creative: maybe you can hang your bike in a stairwell or a closet; above your bed (cool!) or in the kitchen? You can find a spot if you look a bit. Take it from a guy who once stored six bikes in plain view in a 900-square-foot apartment (to my wife's dismay).

Clutch not working


Hi Inge, not to worry steel plates got a little rust film from sitting probably. Let the bike warm up for a few minutes then do the push,run, jump on the seat routine while in nuetral and drop it in 1st gear and drive it around for a while the plates will eventually break free and peace on earth and good will to all mankind will prevail. Try using 20w50 Harley Davidson SYN 3 in the primary and next winter don't put the bike in storage with the engine hot. Wait untill the next day and fire it up drop it in gear for 30 seconds then put it away for winter storage. Good luck

My break light stays on and the blinkers or the hour will work. I replaced the front break light switch, wasn't it. 81yamaha xj550 maxim.


I am not understanding your question: "blinkers or the hour?"

For the brake light: Check the front brake cable to make certain it is moving smoothly and not pinched or stretched anywhere. Make certain the piston is moving in and out properly on the caliper. Check the rear brake linkage. IF YOU HAVE NEVER REPLACED YOUR REAR BRAKE PADS IMMEDIATELY TAKE YOUR REAR WHEEL APART AND MANUALLY INSPECT THE PADS. It has been found in recent years that the original pads will delaminate - separate from the hardware to which they are attached and give way at any moment, leaving you with brake pad floating around your rear hub freely. This almost certainly will result in your bike going down, possibly with pieces of metal flying around from the rear end, and you enjoying a nice slide down the pavement. Remember, if you haven't changed the rear pads, it is likely that they are the originals and 30 years old!! If in doubt of their age, replace them with current pads. They aren't expensive and this could well save your life. Similarly, check the date code on the front brake lines. Those are designed to last 4 years and then be replaced. If you are still using the original lines, or lines older than 2007, you are losing braking power to the weakness of the hoses and risking their rupturing while driving, leaving you in a tough spot. A replacement set of hoses in rubber for that bike will run you about $60 - $80. Much more preferred are stainless steel brake lines as they cost between 25 and 50% more but last many times longer. They should outlast at least 3 sets of rubber lines, if not more. Brake lines sold by almost all vendors are DOT certified for the individual components, but NOT as a unit. Your best (and I believe only) source for fully DOT certified stainless steel brake lines is at xj4ever.com. Go to xjbikes.com -> forums -> supporting vendor and there you will find the "catalog" of things available from XJ4EVER. (The catalog is a 6 page post.) The proprietor is the only source for many XJ parts as he has sought out manufacturers to fabricate some parts which are otherwise no longer available. He has also made it a point to keep as many other parts as he can find in stock, both new and used and his prices are definitely fair. *Please note, I am not paid by and do not receive any sort of compensation from either XJBikes.com nor XJ4Ever.com, but rather am a long term participant of XJBikes.com and a very pleased customer of XJ4ever.com

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.

My 2003 kawasaki zxj6 has been sitting for almost 3 years in a storage shed.. What fluids should I change on the bike


I would change all of them including the break/clutch fluid and take the plugs out and pour some thin oil down the cylinders to ease the rings before turning her over.

Clutch seems to be seized because bike has been sitting for years


Is the clutch lever sized or is the plates sized?
Usually the plates inside sizes, all you have to do is select gear 2 or 3 without starting the bike's engine,operate the clutch lever and push the bike,it should release, the rear wheel should now rotate freely with clutch lever in operation and in gear.
Hope this helps!

I have a schwinn avenue bike purchaced at walmart last fall. i have had to replace spokes on the rear 3 different times.


Either you are riding over some really rough terrain or the air pressure in the tires is too low. Not getting them tight enough will also cause alignment problems and bend spokes. Eric

Bikes been in storage for 4 years


Your oil pan where you normally drain the oil when changing it IS the crankcase. I would also drain any gas from the fuel tank(s) and put fresh gas in it, and you will probably need a new battery.
