not the cylinder head wont come off???? means what? is not = now? real stuck cyliner off (real = rear?) I am trying to follow along blind... your first ever engine work on Motor cycles and lost the service manual that in fact tells all steps to do that? buy one/? gee they are so cheap even used, off fleabay. yes the cam chain guides must be removed.(on some mc) yes cam out and chain released to crank center sprocket. or see if cam chain a keeper link to release the chain, I just did a honda 75, CB750 , and made it like new and sold it. a 12 stud head, with nuts, must be all off. on some 4 cyl, engines there are hidden guide screws seen down the center chain well casing, and a side tensioner too that must be removed, gee all this is in the manual and only off top of my head. is this really a head question or cylinder barrel question we can not see you turning bolts blind. does the engine even spin? not seized engine is step 1. not told that. i rebuilt my first motor cycle in 1963. but papa handed me and service manual for it and said READ this first;. then ask questions. just ffound this bike in an old barn or did it sit in the rain for 45 long hard years? old bikes all the studs are seized now, and 6mm case screws too. unless last owner used anti-seize lube as I have for all those years. my guess is heads do come off but not the actual cylinder jugs/barrels , them self. ??? right and engine is NOT seized, it turn by hand free? the center cam chain must be released , cam out. see this. see bolt on guide the auto tensioner device must be pulled too. 750-undefined-undefined-1.jpg 2 guides and 1 large tensioner. .

1977 Suzuki GS750. How to remove the valve assembly please

It looks like there is a special valve shim removal tool. Yes, the shims would be removed first. The valve spring compressor hooks under the spring as low as you can get and then the top presses the valve spring washer to remove the split collet in the washer well. There are some videos here that may help https://www.google.com/search?q=1977+suzuki+GS750+valve+removal ..

My headlight blew while on a ride. Bike shut down. Got a new headlight but still no power to bike. Relay still clicking. why? 03hd883 sportster.

Try to trace the wires from the headlight back to the rigged switch. at that age wiring can wear/short if it gets moved or rubs the frame or other metal/grounded parts. I know, got an 03 FLHRCI

Electra Glide 2000 EFI - No start after repairing petcock. Help please.

Pressure test the injector rails should hold around 52 psi or the injectors or clogged. If you get it to start, try to run a few bottles of techron in the gas and hope that cleans them out. Could be injectors not getting pressure or opening to allow gas to prime the cylinders. Clogged injectors or bad wires from ECM. try to trace those wires to make sure no bare , broken or damaged wires

2002 Electra Glide FLHT speedometer stopped working along with the other rental

may be electrical from harness at speedo to Variable speed sensor or VSS bad. On right side in top of transmission behind clutch cable cover. Just a little bit back and to the left there should be a med. size wire going down into a fitting that has a bolt holding in the VSS.

02 Dyna low Rider no power to starter back blinkers or RPM gauge

Check battery voltage. Needs 12.5-down to 11.0 ish to start, much less than that say 9 or so may or may not even light up the low draw items. also check the battery ground wire where it terminates on the frame. Sometimes corrosion or broke off the connector.

My sportster SE will not run. Turn key and get green light, bout unit will not move. I do not get any clicking sounds when I turn key on. Does any one have the maintenance manual?

Get a volt meter. Check battery voltage. You may have a bad cell and enough voltage for lights but not enough to engauge silinoid. 12.5 down to 11, much less like around 9 won't light up the starter silinoid. It's not a bad idea to keep the bike on a battery tender when not riding. I've had decent battery's last 6 years that way. 3 years if lucky with no tender

Engine overheating

the way to check a thermostat is to put it in a pan of cold water and slowly bring it to the boil if it opens up its not your thermostat but probably a blocked core in your radiator

Why is my 1980 Honda CB 900 dying when it gets hot?

hi not sure if its a old SOHC with the 900 upgrade or a very early DOHC 900 because 1980-1981 was a change over year when they did away with the SOHC 750 - 900 and brought out the DOHC 750 - 900 the main issue with the okd single overhead cam was the oil ways get blocked up and starve the cam of oil eventually the came will eat its way into the head normally the the end of the cams you might need to seek a new head or reconditioned one if you can find one the DOHC has the same issue just not as much good luck

Bike won't stay on unless choke is on

The choke makes the fuel/air mixture richer, so your stalling issue tells you that the main and/or idle jets are blocked. Take the carb off and clean all the jets. If you remove the mixture screw, tighten it gently first counting to the nearest quarter turn how far in it goes and write it down. Also write down what notch setting the main jet needle is on. If is has fuel injection, it is a whole different ballgame! 'year make model' in all questions please as the first 3 words.
