  1. Motorcycle Repair
    So I bought my first bike off of craigslist a few months ago and am just now having the time to start to work on it. I had never touched a motorcycle or had any prior engine maniacal knowledge before this project. I knew it did not start when I got it but it was most likely just the battery that...

    Hey all! New to riding. Just picked up my first bike a few weeks ago - a 1975 Honda CB 125s. Took it in for a look over and the mechanic said it is in great shape. I'm attempting to learn as I go regarding repairs but could use some help at the moment. I have a small oil leak (one or two...

    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.

    I put a new stator in my Sabre (VT1100C2). Everything went well, except nobody tells you that prying the engine cover over the shift shaft seal is a little more than just pulling the cover off. This, I think is the experience part that's not added to the Clymer/Chilton ,which is why these forums...

    I made the mistake of telling a friend that his first motorcycle was in great shape and that he should purchase it. I have since learned to keep my mouth shut as now I have to fix something that crept up during his first week of riding. The head gasket of this fine motorcycle has started to...
  8. Honda
    I have a Honda Shadow Spirit 2003. I just noticed my front left fork is leaking oil. I found a few drops on the ground and then noticed blow back on the chrome, shifter, etc. I know this isn't good but what is going on and how serious is it? Also, I called Honda and they said 87 octane was...
