2003 katana 750 f butteryflys work on carb , what makes the the slide with diaphram open

The carburetor slide diaphragm is responsible for opening the carburetor slide when the throttle is opened. The diaphragm is made of rubber and is located on top of the carburetor slide. When the throttle is opened, the vacuum created by the engine pulls on the diaphragm, which in turn lifts the slide and allows more air and fuel to enter the engine . If you're having issues with your carburetor slide diaphragm, it could be due to a number of reasons such as wear and tear, damage, or improper installation. You may need to replace it or have it inspected by a professional mechanic. Carburetor diaphragm repair that works ' Kawasaki Motorcycle Forums

I have a 07 Gsxr

The clutch cable is the first place to check as it's a high failure rate part and also the easiest to fix. It you can see the clutch arm with the bike assembled, pull the handelbar handle and see if the arm moves all the way. under the counter shafts sprockets cover is the arm and it's adjustment screw it could have backed out or is brocken. You may be able to remove this cover and watch it operate. Does the handle bar lever pull in with the normal amount of play and feel? Most bikes that have been sitting though the winter can have stuck and now the cable or the clutch is stuck or broken. The clutch that was working and not the very next use probly not the clutch it's self but the cable and or the handle bar or linkage. Remove the cable and see if it moves smoothly if it binds at all or catches or requires any force to move or turn the cable in the housing it's bad and needs to be replaced. the aftermarket cables are cheaper and better than orginal equipment and can be aquired though the bike bandit ONLINE In the USA they ship to you in a few days and if your an AMA motorcyclist member you can get a 10 % discount and if your all the time rider the other benifits will helpyou too.

I removed key switch on a 2008 yamha star 650 when I put it in gear it shuts off

Here are some possible causes: Low idle RPM: If your idle RPM is set too low, the bike may shut off when you put it in gear. You can consult a manual to see what the RPM should be. Side stand switch: Most bikes have a safety switch that shuts down the engine if the side stand is still out. Check if the side stand is still out and if it is, try putting it up. Clutch lever switch: Most bikes have an electrical switch in the clutch lever as a safety feature so that you can't start it in gear unless the clutch is in. This switch could be faulty. Safety control box: This box checks all the safety features and kills the engine if needed. It could be faulty. It's best to take your bike to a professional mechanic who can diagnose and fix the issue for you unless you can check off each of the above as the problem. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/833178/Yamaha-Xvs650.html

On my o6 roadstar 1700. The oil is getting sucked into the carb and smokes terribly. Not for real long though. It runs all the oil out real quick. Anyone have any ideas?

I hope I can help you brother. Crankcases have a breather tube and it expels exhaust gasses, those gases press themselves in between cylinder and piston. It makes the oil black and acid response on coal is not good for engine parts. The breather tube is mostly connected to the low pressure chamber below the air filter. Typically that is close to the air intake for the carburetor. Remove the air filter and its base plate and clean the compartment careful with dust free rags. I don't know of any technical details for this cruiser but there can be valves on front of the carb, small membranes that open on revelations and the known gas slides. Those must not be effected by sticky substances. Oil is not sticky but the intended functioning leaves a residue. You need in any case, to check the oil level. Also the condition of the oil, so you made sure there is no gray foam from water contamination. Droplets on the dipstick, or on the inspection window glass, indicate fuel in the oil. When the oil level is between Min and Max or low and it turns out to be pure, then I suspect you have a leaking piston ring or even a damaged piston side wall. I would not ride the bike far before you know certain. You also wouldn't want a sudden stop.The compression blows in hard and unnoticed, the slow sucking breather tube is then turned into a hose. After each ride the access spill can flow down the carb. Compression can be tested in a shop but turning the engine over without spark, may provide audible evidence when the compression is really low in one cylinder. I ones had an unnoticed broken piston ring, on a moped and that damaged the piston. Best of luck

Battery maintance

If you remove the battery from your bike DO NOT store it on a concrete or metal surface, place the battery on a wood or other non-conductive surface. Batteries stored on concrete or metal will discharge over time.

2006 Honda Shadow Arrow 750 VT missing on the rear cylinder fire

. One possibility is that the spark plug or plug wire is faulty 1. Another possibility is that the carburetor needs cleaning and adjustment It could also be due to a valve adjustment issue or a bent rod. I would recommend taking your motorcycle to a professional mechanic who can diagnose and fix the issue. If you prefer to troubleshoot it yourself, you can start by checking the spark plug and plug wire for any damage or wear and cleaning the carburetor. However, please note that working on a motorcycle engine can be dangerous and requires specialized knowledge and tools. Please take all necessary safety precautions and follow the manufacturer's instructions when working on your motorcycle.

What is the gap set and what is a recomend spark plug for a 05 shadow sabre 1100

Most modern spark plugs are already set to the correct gap when you buy them. Some plugs have special coatings on them that will break if you try to re-gap them damaging the plug and you'll have to replace them even though they are still new. If you are in ANY doubt buy the spark plugs recommended by Honda. I would suggest you DON'T buy the really cheap Amazon ones as they are poor quality, don't lat very long and can cause problems because of that. Buy a full set from a well known brand like NGK, Champion, Bosch or Denso. It's basically all down to how much your prepared to pay for them. Always replace spark plugs as a full set.

Locating the flasher relay, where is it on an

Depends on the year. The older ones use an old car flasher. Usually under the fairing. The next generation used a black or grey turn signal module. Again under the fairing.

To lose one pound per week how many calories do you need to subtract from your daily intake

That would depend entirely on how many calories your lifestyle, activity, metabolism, location, climate, ambient temperature and suchlike caused you to burn each day. All those variables affect the amount of calories needed to maintain health. A man working in arctic conditions could need as much as 6000 calories each day but the same man working in the tropics would probably maintain good health with around 2200, less if he has a sedentary occupation. It is not a precise science and in addition most diets include a number of useless calories. When dieting, incidentally, an obesity diet of 1000 calories per day or less should not be undertaken unless under medical supervision.
