    Frustrating float level adjustment. 1995 Yamaha Virago 750

    Why are Yamaha's and Kawasaki's so frustrating? I've never had trouble wrapping my head around a Honda. Suzuki I won't comment on. So the shop manual says that "88 and later" XV750's should have a carb fuel level of "2mm". The hell does this mean? 2mm above or below? Measuring from what point...

    Need chrome slip on mufflers for 2" headers

    I have a set of 4-2 headers and they include the mufflers, but they're kinda crap. I want to find some mufflers that will fit a 2" OD pipe and look the part. I've searched everywhere and haven't found such an odd size except for more modern sport-bike cans. Here's an idea of what I need. Let...

    Need 70's Honda seat lock or parts

    I have a seat lock that has a broken shank/bolt whatever it's called. The part that locks the pin on the seat. Let me know if you have a similar lock to the one pictured or if you at least have the shank from one. It's the part attached to the spring, sort of strawed or brassy color.

    Rear Spoke DISC hub for Suzuki GS needed! Can Trade!

    I'm converting a 1978 GS1000E from the alloy star wheels to classic spoked wheels. As I understand, the GS750 and GS1000 hubs are already tapped for dual disks on the front! And they should bolt right up! Let me know where I can find a decent set. Not too worried about the condition of the...

    WTB CB750k top-end! SOHC jugs and head

    OK, so the story is that a candidate for UC Berkley's highest honors decided to rebuild a CB750 top-end. You can guess how that turned out. So at this point I need a matching set of jugs, a head, and a source for new pistons and rings. I just want to bore, hone, and replace gaskets and be done...

    WTB Kawasaki KDX200 carburetor or mixture screw

    I've been working on this KDX that was delivered to me with the carb in pieces and the mixture screw MIA. Thing is, the '88 is apparently a unique creature of legend never used on any other model before or since. So, I either need this mixture screw or a carburetor that will mount up similarly...

    That'll just buff out, right? Ready to cringe

    Here's a CB750 that's leaking oil like mad. You can actually watch it spurt out as the bike is running. So I'm rebuilding it. Gee, I wonder what happened here. Can anybody guess exactly what the P.O. did? It should be able to be shaved down, right?

    Bike too big for DMV course? I don't suck, YOU suck

    Yet another failure to yield to criticism. This guy claims he is a skilled rider, but can't navigate the course to earn a license... so obviously that's the fault of the course. It goes on to say that a similar Harley navigated the course with ease, piloted by a police patrolman. Is this guy...

    Kawasaki Vulcan Flywheel Self-Destructed?

    This is a 95 Vulcan 500 that I was scheduled to replace the stator on. The owner removed the side cover and found something a little peculiar. Can anybody tell me what the hell happened to the magnets on the flywheel? What can we do now?

    That'll void your warranty - Your worst or most painful "fixes"

    I recently watched a video where a car's oil pan was being drained of water. It was a lot of water. I would have to guess completely FULL of water. The mech says the woman filled her car with water after it overheated. Now you've got bigger problems. I understand the difference between stupid...
