Power Motorcycles - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
My bike looses all power when taking off in first and sometimes in between gears and as im riding the radio used to work i recently put a new drive belt on it ive been going crazy about this
If the radio problem showed up, at the same time the loss of power did...I would check the charging circuit, to see if something is loading it down heavily. This is only an educated guess, since I don't even know what brand of bike you have, or have the wiring diagram for it. An alternator with a bad diode in it, or a nearly dead short on its output, can act as a brake. If your bike uses other electrical accessories, or electric start...and the battery is being charged properly, and the other accessories work ok...then I would start looking for something binding or dragging, in the drive belt system. Especially, if the last belt wore out quickly. Good luck.

Losing power 1999 Honda Magna VF 750
What type of spark plugs did you install (NGK or DENSO)? Did you check the gap and/or gap them to 0.036? There are other possibilities. Do you own a multimeter? You may want to pull them and check the resistance. Maybe a coil wire is not seated or the coil and/or coil wire needs service or repair from being handled. Maybe it is a coincidence and there is another problem. If the ignition system checks out then move to fuel and air. Any questions please let me know. Good luck.

Oil gas mixture 2000 Yamaha PW90
If your model is the 90 then it should be a 4 stroke engine you put 10w30 or 10w40 oil in the engine and gas in the tank. Do not mix oil into the gas tank on a 4 stroker you will knacker the engine big time.
If however you have a definite 2 stroke model, you have 2 oil tanks one for the gearbox, and the plastic one under the seat for the engine.
Gearbox tank fill with 10w30 oil the plastic tank under the seat with 2 stroke oil. The 2 stroker mixes the oil and gas so you don't need to.
