  1. Motorcycle Repair
    Howdy! I have a 1996 DR350S that my father used to ride and hasn't rode since 2008. I've been trying to get it running and so far I have disassembled and cleaned the carb(rebuilt it using a rebuild kit so all new o-rings, gaskets and injectors), of course check fuse, clean the gas tank, and put...
  2. For Sale: Motorcycles
    Hello all. I have a well maintained SV here that would love a new home. I’m growing more interested in off-road riding and doubt I’ll have any track days in my future. $2500 obo or trade for off road capable machines within reason. I don’t think I’ll trade you this bike and 10k for a R1200 as...
  3. General Motorcycle Discussion
    I'm looking to buy either an XR 650 or KLR 650. I'm leaning towards the XR because it has more pop and is better on trails and off road. But, I like the KLR because it's better for the highway and cruising. I live in a somewhat rural area but the only "off-roading" I can do around here is gravel...
  4. First Bike / New Rider
    I'm new to riding and am looking at a 2009 Honda CRF230M. It's the only available dual sport near my location at a reasonable price. The 'M' model comes standard with a front tire 110/70-17 Dunlop GT401 Arrowmax and a rear tire 130/70-17 Dunlop GT401 Arrowmax. Obviously, it has 17-inch...
  5. First Bike / New Rider
    I have about a 20 minute highway ride to my high school which is in a small town (about 1200 people so I won't ever be in traffic) and I don't know what would be a better bike to ride to and from school daily. I am in southern Colorado right next to mountains so there would be endless off road...

    I've got a 1973 Yamaha RD60 oil injected 2 stroke. It idles just fine, but when I put it in 1st and start to let the clutch out it bogs down and starts to die, if I pull in the clutch I can sometimes save it. any thoughts? It also has horn problems, the horn is really weak. If i adjust the screw...

  8. Motorcycle Repair
    I have a 1981 honda xl185s. I recently bought it and it is my first motorcycle. When I bought it, it wasn't running. After cleaning the carb and putting new gas in it fired right up. It was starting first kick every time for about a month. The other day, I took it out for a couple 5-10 mile...
  9. First Bike / New Rider
    Hello all, I'm turning 17 here in a month and would like to get a motorcycle license to make it easier for me to commute to class and such, looking into the Illinois DOT's laws (I'm in the Peoria area), I can get a Class L license, which gives me the ability to ride a bike up to 150cc. I'm just...
  10. Motorcycle Repair
    And then when it fires, it runs rough, then when I try to give any gas, it dies instantly. I removed carb, cleaned, adjusted float and set everything back to factory settings. Put together and it did the same thing. Jump up and down on seat while trying to start, and it starts. Then dies giving...

  12. Motorcycle Repair
    Hi all, I have a 1981 Kawasaki KE100. It was a good price, and kind of an impulse buy. After working on it for some time I seem to be stuck on an issue. The bike doesn't seem to want to idle at all and it will often die when I am at low throttle also. I can get the bike started with the...
  13. Sport Bike As First Bike
    I've been riding a bike (bicycle) for almost two years and I'm ready to move up in the world and get something with a motor. It seems like a dual sport is exactly what I'm looking for so that I could get the best of on and off the streets. I was wondering about the pricing for a 2007 KLR 650...
