Yes,,, drop it in the repair shop it the easy way forwards, but if cash is tight, go and buy a repair book for your bike but you will still need tools to do the job right, and its not easy to do,,, get a pall to do it for you???? and give him a drink for it?

1981 Yamaha xj750 seca. How do I change the starter clutch


No You Should be able to remove the one way starter clutch by removing the right-hand side cover and also removing the starter you can Utube the procedure im pretty sure but its pretty basic to do once your inside the cover and also you may wanna drain the oil previously to removing the side cover so it doesn't drain out on the floor while your trying to get cover off also be careful because there are dowels that align the case to the engine and sumtimes they rust together :)

Need diagram to put on starter drive clutch ***.for 1985 1340cc harley


To replace the starter drive clutch on your 1985 model Big Twin, first disconnect the battery. Drain the primary and remove the primary cover. Remove the starter drive shaft that has the clutch on it. Clamp the drive shaft in a vise equipped with soft jaws and remove the nut from the end of the shaft. The nut is the round piece on the end that has two flats for a wrench to fit. It has LEFT HANDED THREADS. Remove the starter drive and replace it with a new unit. Replace the nut using Loctite 271 red and put the starter drive shaft back in. Make sure you purchase a good starter drive clutch. Avoid the Chinese units as they don't hold up very well. If you need a diagram, go to this site. http://www.bikebandit.com/1985-harley-davidson-fxst/o/m1502#sch209973

How do i adjust or tune up my carb on a 1985 suzuki gs 550 l runs but the has to be choked out


If it is running like that with new fuel the problem could be plugged idle jet circuits. The carburetors will have to be removed, opened and cleaned. You will need compressed air for this job. Good idea to replace all 'O'rings inside carb at this time.

you do need to take the clamp on section of the shiffter off. You shouldn't loose any oil unless you have other issue. just remove the outer cover and you will see where the cable connects, piece of cake. good luck
