    Okay, So I have a 81 Yamaha Virago. When I bought it, the bike was in good working order, had a few cosmetic issues, apparently though while sitting in my garage a gremlin broke in and ruined it, or I am just very unlucky. So basically my bike wont turn over, click, chug or start for that...

    I have a 1981 Honda cb650. I'm having trouble with gas flowing out the vent t's. The floats are not adjustable and I have new needles installed. I only have gas flowing out the right two carbs but not sure which carb since the vent hose is in between. I'm not sure how to get this stopped...

    My dad and I were riding last month and all of a sudden, after we came to a stop, he released his foot brake on his 81' GL1000 and it rose above its normal resting position by about 2 inches. It is still functional, but he says its very uncomfortable to reach. Any advice on how to repair this so...
  9. First Bike / New Rider
    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question, but this is my first bike.... I have a 1981 Honda Twinstar (CM200T). It's small, but until recently has been a sweet ride. I've had it about a year. It used to start up and run like a charm on the first kick. (electric start was disabled...
