Hi. To fit a new wire harnes is a fairly straight forward job if you still have the old one fitted, the main difficulty is getting the route correct so if you place the new one alongside the old harness, disconnect te battery, do not rush the job work in one area at a time reconecting all the disconnected wires from the old harness with the new, this will ensure you have not left any wires disconnected, and when finnished reconnect the battery live first followed by the earth wire.

fouled spark plugs...intake manifold leak... you could have a vacuum line come off or isnt on all the way. bad batch of gas..weak coils, or poor compression. or the choke could not be operating properly. also running too heavy an oil could cause this problem, you should run 10w40 only.

i think you have air traped somewhere these things are a devil to bleed. you will have to use a power bleeder which is simply a small hand vac pump put on your bleed screw to **** fliuid and air out of the system. this the best way i know of and will save you a lot of grief

Bleed the master first, make sure that there is plenty of fluid going through there and all the air is out. Then, once the master is fully bled, the fluid will pull through the lines quickly. Just do one line at a time, and once you do them both and get good pressure you want to zip tie the lever to the bar overnight to make sure you get all the little bubbles out. Hope that helps.

We REALLY need more details to answer anything, but It sounds like you may be referring to tires. if so, they must be replaced, tubes also.

Shifting forks or othr part at issue..buy a clymer or haynes manual for that ol bike

First make sure that the starter is not loose and that there is nothing blocking the starter drive from enguaging to the flywheel. Also check for 12 volts at the starter when you turn the key. Could also just be a bad starter.

Read this forum about loosing the electrical problem with your vs1400. With a voltage tester , trace the power from the battery following the main power cable to find the problem.
