    I'll try to keep this short and to the point. I purchased a 2002 Suzuki VS800 Intruder with about 7500mi 3 weeks ago. I upgraded from a 2004 Honda Rebel. Riding the Suzuki felt amazing, and I was finding every possibility to ride it and enjoying it. Then came the problem about a week ago. I rode...

    Hi all. First time posting and I’m hoping someone, anyone, has had the same problem I’m having or have some idea about what’s going on I bought a 2000 sv 650 as a daily rider. Nothing fancy, just something to get around that has a little zip. Bike rode great for a few months but then started...

    Hey Y'all, I just bought a 1973 Honda CB450. It's been running fine until a couple days ago. What happens is I'll be cruising along in 3rd or 4th gear at <30mph and suddenly lose about half my power. When I slow to a stop and put in the clutch the engine dies, but when I release the clutch the...

    I have a 93' Nighthawk. I went to turn it on and I am not getting power to my gauges. The last time I rode it, it was fine. I checked the battery and i am getting a charge. I also checked all the fuses and they are fine. I checked all the connections behind the headlight and they are getting...

    On the highway to work this morning, going 65ish, I'm in 6th gear. For a little bit I feel like the bike was revving too high for 6th but I can't be certain.. Anyway, halfway through the ride the tachometer starts spiking to its limit and I lose power for an instant. I lay off the throttle and...

    Hey everybody. I'm having some issues with my 2004 Honda Rebel. Before I get started I know that it's a 250 so it's innate power is limited, so the comparative adjectives I use will be to compare it to itself. That being said... I left my bike un-ridden for about two weeks. Now when I ride...
