    Hey everyone, My Name is Andy, I work at a custom bike shop in Philly where we are currently restoring vintage Japanese bikes, mostly from the 1970's. I'm joining the forum hoping for community assistance on some of the bikes I'm building. I also hope to help others with their own projects...

    My GZ250 was running fine and then I forgot to pick the kickstand up before taking off. So the kickstand safety switch turned the engine off as I tried to roll off. I then proceeded to start my bike again but this time it did not want to start. The bike just continuously turns but does not fire...

    Hey, so to start off, new to the forum. I can't figure out what's wrong with my bike and therefore how to fix it, best to my knowledge it may be my crank shaft. My bike had a new battery and the carbs were all rebuilt along with an inline fuel filter. I was riding and my bike started to have...
  8. First Bike / New Rider
    I wasn't sure exactly where to put this, but since it goes under the "I don't know much about motorcycles" heading, this is probably the closest. My husband wants me, for his birthday, to find a tolerable-to-me passenger seat for his motorbike. Previously, he had a 1982 Honda CM450C, and the...

    I have a 1971 suzuki 90 enduro that seems to not be catching gears. I was riding down the road when it slowed down to a stop. When i crank it up(which it does easily) and try to go into first or any other gear it doesnt move but it also doesn't stall out when i release the clutch. I can hear the...

    So I recently bought a gsx750f katana street fighter custom on Craigslist for 750 dollars, obviously the price alone says there's something wrong, but when I bought it he just said it was a carburetor issue, but even though the fuel line is extremely dirty, I don't think that's the only issue. I...
  14. First Bike / New Rider
    Hey, everyone. I have another problem, unfortunately. Well, I have had it for the last month, but am only addressing it now because I am sick of it. For reasons unknown to me, there seems to be a high pitched noise coming from the clutch cable near the speedometer. This usually only happens when...

    Hey guys, I'm currently trying to fix up a 1974 Suzuki TS185, and unfortunately the previous owner bent the forks and attempted to straighten them back out (unsuccessfully). I'm having trouble finding a pair of forks that are suitable to replace the current bent ones, and was wondering if...
