It has been sitting in the garage for the last 30 years. And the more I thought about it, the more excited I got about the idea...

    So there is some history to this: I just got the bike after a testdrive. Where I only noticed it backfiring a bit, not giving its full power when accelerating. Bit choppy on the firing. It had been sitting for a long time so I decided on cleaning the carbs end revising them. Ultrasonic bath...

    I recently bought an Akrapovic Link Pipe for my MT-10. I'm looking for an actual muffler to put on it(besides Akrapovic). I really like the Termignoni or SCP but for some reason literally no exhaust company has the diameter of their inlet or link pipe. I NEED HELP!

    So I have a 2002 Yamaha YZF-R6 and it is not starting. When I put the ignition to "on" and the kill switch is "on", all the lights are bright and normal. Once I flip the kill switch to "off", the lights dim drastically. I try to start it and it just buzz under the seat. I connected it to my...

    Hi everyone, Super weird one here, I installed new click in/removable indicators on my WR450f and they work perfectly when the ignition is on, without the motor running. As soon as I kick the motor over, they completely stop, and the voltage coming out of each indicator wire is -2v. Anyone had...

    Hey guys, my compression was really low so after finding the shims were leaving too little clearance and causing two of my valves to stay open I ordered the tool needed to remove my shims. However, not the tool. The original doesn't look to be found anywhere outside of the UK and these new...

    Hey everyone Got a Yamaha Vstar 650 classic as my first bike and it has a problem with the rear cylinder not firing. My Dad and I removed the carb and gave it a thorough cleaning, but that didn’t fix it. We replaced the spark plugs too. It was sitting for a bit so the gas is probably bad so our...
