    Hello! 2014 Kawasaki Ninja 300 ABS, when accelerating everything is smooth and sounds sexy. No issues when flooring it. When holding a steady speed the engine sounds like brrrnrnrnrnrnnrnrnrrnrnrnr, like the throttle quickly kicking on and off, rather than a nice constant brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

    Hi, I'm Ruchir and my ride is a TVS Apache RTR 160 4v, I've been riding this motorcycle for a year but am experienced in riding since the last 7 years. I know a 160cc may not sound like alot but here in India where people usually ride in shorts and flip-flops it's plenty power as 150cc to 200cc...

    I have a small 200cc motorcycle. The thing is I am not in close proximity with my bike(due to the lockdown). I have been feeding the bike with a company recommended: Synthetic Oil - TVS TRU4 Synthetic 10W 30. The oil hasn't been changed in like 10 months. For those 10, I had used the bike for...

    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. But this, this bugs me, almost seems like the piston rings are rubbing against the inner cylinder wall? Or the carburetor is not...

    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...

    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...

    Hi i have a 1963 honda trail 55. When i kick it over there is spark and fuel but wont start so i moved to compression. I realized that there is air blowing out of the carb. So i thought it would be the valves. After some work i found a great deal online and replaced the cylinder head and cover...

    Hey guys, New here, thanks for having me. I recently bought a suzuki GZ250 (2005) from a guy who owns a riding school. A few scratches here and there but I tested it twice and it ran fine both times. Let it sit in my garage for a couple days, wouldn't start last night. Sounded like it was...

    HI everybody Short introduce first :) I'm fresh rider I bought my honda CB125F in May this year. I had first check after 600 miles but dealership in my opinion charg me to much for just oil change (£150). I decide to service my bike by my self now. On 2500 miles I change the oil for castrol...

    I am having some trouble with my 1984 Honda XL600r, Last week I was driving down a dirt road going 60 or so, when my bike suddenly turned shut off and my back tire locked. After slowing down a little bit, I managed to jump start it again and continue on with my trip. About 250-300 yards down the...
  13. Suzuki
    Hello, I have a '95 Suzuki Savage 650. Whenever the bike is at idle or low end RPM's, I can hear a ticking noise coming from the top end of the engine. Yesterday I adjusted my valves for the first time, and it's been quite a while that I'm aware of that they were touched. Slapped the tank...

    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...

    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. Since the gas tank is full it doesn't make any sense as to...

    Hello everyone, I've posted a lot of threads while I've been working on this bike being my first bike owned/worked on and I need your help hopefully only once more. So my bike was running pretty much fine except for I installed something in the clutch wrong so it wasn't disengaging causing it to...

    I have a 1978 Honda CB400TII that inadvertently turned into a project bike. After a month if getting the engine apart and back together I finally started it and 3 things happened: 1: Oil started leaking from the gasket around the bottom of the cylinders. And not just a little. It was enough for...
