SOURCE: Breaking Down

The problem may be a pinched fuel or vacuum hose, or a weak/collapsed vacuum hose. The problem may be varnished fuel/carburetors. It may be an electrical problem: loose connector or defective conductor. I cannot help you other than this without having the Duc and performing a few tests. The Monsters are fun to ride.

SOURCE: Bad Vibrations

Obviously, harmonics are at play here. I suggest you change gearbox oil and filter then change the oil again (w/o filter) after 50 miles. The idea is to flush dirt and grit from the engine. Try the bike now. Some would say this is a long shot but it is cheap and not much hassle > and it may well work. If nothing else, it cant't hurt anything. Change to premium gas to eliminate pre-ignition.

If the vibration is still present you had best take the bike to the dealer for his first hand input. Broken clutch friction plate? Bearing going bad? Connecting rod going bad? If I had to wager I would go with the clutch. I am reaching here. Not much more I can do.

Cape Cod Bob, What are your thoughts?

SOURCE: My car shakes after applying brakes at high speeds

Well even though you had the rotors turned, they still could be warped and causing the car to shake at a high rate of speed when the brakes are applied. My suggestion is to replace the rotors asap.

SOURCE: Engine shutoff while riding at a fixed speed

It could be that you have to much oil in the crank case. I overfilled mind and my son could not ride his machine behind me, due to the smoke. Otherwise drain the carb (small bolt under the float chamber. Good Luck

Wheels generally have two bearings, one on each side of the wheel. There are tools to remove them if you're replacing them, and you can use a long 3/8" or 1/2" socket extension and a rubber mallet to tap them out from the other side..

9500ci K band sensitivity

be aware the patrol cars change the bands to overcome the detection units on sale so that they can identify speeding drivers. Have you unit tested but if it proves ok then the changed band will be the problem. Over here they are using a combination of bands and infer red to detect speeders.

Smartrike front wheel won't turn with pedals once on the ground

Old question but I just needed the answer and figured it out. On one side of the wheel there is a disc with two arrows, line this arrows up with the arrows on the wheel and push the disc into the wheel until it clicks into place. Pull it out to convert back to a stroller.

MBS 240/E proxxon bandsaw

the 24 TPI is the one to use. It sounds as if the blade is running to fast and over heating the blade and causing it to lose the temper in the balde steel. Try slowing the blade speed down if you can. Also you can try putting some cutting oil on the balde to stop it from clogging up. You can also rig up a small air line to blow on the cutting area to cool it down and remove the metal chips. I've also applied some wax to the blade every so often. A candle will work for this too. Hope this helps you, Jeepfxr
