2001 Sportster. Just installed a Screaming Eagle engine. It starts up and runs, but why does it want to shut off, especially at idle?

Carb needs ajusting. Check utube or pinterest or buy a haynes or clymer shopbook for harley or eagle. Try setting throttl lever highr before it dies if not fuel inject

2003 Yamaha Drag Star 650. I am missing a bolt under the engine. Does anyone know what it is for?

This could be anything! Could you use the 'Comment' button below with Photos of the bolt hole AND where it is on the bike? This will give more clues as to what it is used for.

A properly timed spark. Properly metered fuel. Adequate compression. This is ALL that's needed for your bike to run... simple process of elimination. Contact a professional.

1991 Kawasaki ZXR 750 needle jet clip position

The clip position should not effect the engine running/idling. If these are replacement carbs?, they might be way too lean. I would take the carbs to a professional who can totally disassemble them, then clean and set them!! Were the valves recently adjusted? If yes, the intake valves are probably too tight,,, this will cause high/runaway idle.

1995 Kawasaki ZXR 750 replace the fork seals

NO. IF they are leaking, either they have been overfilled, you nicked the seal during install, the forks have some small surface defect in the seal contact area. If you did not replace them, they need to be replaced.... without regular usage.. they get dry, shrink, sometimes the seal lips crack

1971 Kawasaki Mach III 500 does'nt start, but I remove a spark plug and then it starts. I would like to know the problem and how to fix it.

With this much info, its going to be hard to diagnose... Replace all 3 spark plugs with the correct "surface gap" ones. Make sure the battery is FULLY charged! Check the rotor button and the cap for signs of shorting..(dark streaks or smudges inside the cap). The rotor button and the cap condition are CRITICAL!

Why no spark?

First - replace all spark plugs with factory recommended. Check the kill switch, If you have had the tank off... check under there for a wire/plug you knocked loose. Then take it to a professional

How to replace shift shaft on 2005 TT-R230

Hello, Unless you are a REALLY GOOD mechanic with the correct tools, please do not attempt this. This is a pretty much straight forward job for a professional! Shouldn't take more than 2 hours, This is NOT a learning experience unless you are being tutored by a PROFESSIONAL!!

2003 Yamaha R1 timing chain replacement. Having trouble getting the timing set back correctly. And info or video's would be most helpful.

Bring the #1 piston (not sure if its the far right or far left piston) to top dean center on the compression stroke. There should be timing marks on the stator/generator flywheel (two of them) one is the TDC mark and the other is the timing mark. You use the TDC one! Then time BOTH cams (there should be a mark) ..make sure the piston is still at TDC and both cams have the BOTH cams lobes are108* away from the lifters.

Maxim. Does it use motor oil and transmission oil or just one fluid?

One of those drain plugs MIGHT be your neutral indicator detent spring and ball. MAKE SURE its in neutral before removing either plug. The other one is the oil drain plug. Both will drain oil, but the neutral detent will not get all the oil out,

Which shift forks do I need for second and sixth gear?

If you are replacing 2 shift forks, I would replace ALL of them.. if they show signs of wear, replace all of them! You also need to find out WHY they are worn out! Bent shift shaft? Do you ride with pressure on the shifter after you have shifted (to make sure it stays in gear)...If the bike has been dropped on the left side, you might have bent them. A PROFESSIONAL needs to inspect you transmission!!
