    Hello everyone, I just got a 1974 Honda CL125S from a friend. It’s a single owner and has sat since 1978 and only has 4K original miles. Only negative of the bike is that the gas tank is totally rusted and has some rust holes so I will be replacing the tank. My plan is to restore this beauty...

    The urban dictionary defines Gurty as “something that looks so wrong it's right.” I need a bike to go back for TT23. This is my how-to guide. Let me know if you can prove this is your bike. I have a gift for you. This is Gurty. Or, should I say, this is the early stages of Gurty being...

    I'm repairing a 1981 Honda Passport c70 and the rim is bent, so I need to find a wheel and a spoke kit for it. I haven't had any luck finding OEM parts that are affordable (I'm in Canada btw) and so I turned to ebay, since there is a plethora of parts to be had. The OEM parts say that these...

    I have a 1984 Honda VT500FT that has no electricity at all. Turning the key on is like taking the battery out! No headlight, dash lights, tail light... no starter, no horn. All fuses are good and a new solenoid did no good either. and, the battery is at 12.5 volts. Any advice on where to begin?

    I'm very new to 4 stroke motorcycles, this is my first one. Had 3 different 2 strokes and never encountered anything even close to this. So I just bought a Honda CA 125 Rebel 1997 iirc, with the little twin engine. It sat for god knows how many years without being started. When i first tried...

    I've recently had a few issues with my Honda Express and I was wondering if anyone could give me an idea of what it could be, the right indicators were working fine but stopped working recently out of nowhere, I changed the front right indicator and it started working, but once again it's...

    Hi there I have a 1992 honda express I recently got and I was wondering how I fix a few issues on it, the first issue is the fuel gauge doesn't work, I've checked the fuel level float and it seems to be okay and all connections seem to be okay but it still doesn't work, second issue is that the...

    Good Afternoon, I’ve found a Shadow Aero that I’m thinking about going with as a first motorcycle. I wasn’t quite sure what to look for so I just figured low miles for the budget I was willing to spend. The bike’s a 09’ that has about 2.2k miles & out the door price is $5.1k. I know a 2022...

    I hate to be writing this…again. I bought my Honda CBR600RR three weeks ago thinking there would be no issues but here we are, the bike does not run smoothly. It’s on and off, sometimes it has this undercurrent that pulls me and feels good and other times, when the bike does not run smoothly, it...

    I have a '99 Honda VTR Firestorm (SuperHawk996) which has been suffering from starting issues for the past month. Sometimes it would start without any issue over and over. Sometimes it would start once but if we turn it off and try again, the issue would come back even if we let the engine warm...

    Hi, I own a '99 Honda VTR Firestorm (SuperHawk 996) and I would like to know how tight a timing chain should be. At the moment my bike has the automatic chain tensioner. We removed the head cover and had a poke at the timing chain with a finger and it felt super tight and had no slack at all. We...

    Hi, we have been having starting issues in our Firestorm for quite some time now and in the past 2 days it has gotten worse. Getting the bike started has become very challenging. When we hold the push start button, the instrument cluster would dim and the starter motor makes a ‘wrring’ noise...

    Hi! As a newbie I'm trying to figure out the best way to set my air fuel mixture on my v twin Transalp. I've recently seen a video of a guy who disconnects the spark plug from one side of a v-twin, in order to set each carb individually. In my mind that makes sense, since you eliminate any...

    I bought my first bike, 1973 Honda CB750 Custom Bobber. Haven't owned it just a couple weeks and one day after riding I noticed it was leaking oil. Not a normal small leak, a substantial oil leak. After investigating I noticed was basically looks like a whole in part of the engine or gearbox...

    Hello, I have two projects I'm currently a part of. My own personal project bike is a '72 Suzuki TS90 Suitcase that I'm looking to convert to electric (It was a parts bike destined for the junkyard; don't kill me).
