  1. A strange clunk while revving the engine

    Motorcycle Repair
    When I start my engine(TVS Apache) there is this strange clung coming within the transmission area, even in Neutral! I have done about 10k kms with no major problems.

  3. Whining/whirring noise from my 50cc.

    Motorcycle Repair
    Got a Derbi Senda 50cc 2013 moped which has a whining noise when I drive. I think the whining noise comes from either the transmission or the clutch. The sound does not seem to affect how the bike works, it shifts well, pulls well, works just fine. The sound comes when I drive the bike, but also...
  4. Come with me on my journey

    Motorcycle Repair
    Excessive knocking on my 2008 Suzuki C50. Sounds like valves or chains. While on the throttle in low RPM (gear slightly under load) the bike will dip in power (almost like backfiring). Medium to hard throttle, no issues at all. ...So new fuel, 2 valve adjustments, oil, plugs, you name it - no...

  13. Engine dies when you let the clutch out

    Motorcycle Repair
    I have this intermittent problem on my 2004 kawasaki VN250 eliminator that has been mechanically perfect up to this point. When you let the clutch out to engage first gear the engine dies. It does it with the choke on as well. It's definitely nothing to do with a cold engine and as I said the...

    Motorcycle Repair
    Hi all, I am having an interesting/frustrating problem with my Yamaha tw200. I have not rode it in a long, long while, and while riding recently I noticed that the bike stalls when slowing to a stop, but runs completely fine in reserve.

  20. 1980 Honda CB900c smoking issues

    Motorcycle Repair
    So I recently received a CB900 that is in great running condition. It starts right up with no problem, but it smokes a lot once it heats up. I've looked up online and can't seem to find anything that really satisfies the question as to what it could be. I've read that it could be the O-rings...
