    How to get rid of flat spot on a rear tire?

    My son got a 96 Kawi ZX7R last fall, and one of the things he complained about after riding it was the flat spot in the center of the rear tire. The guy he bought it from only rode it on the highway to work and back, with NO turns whatsoever. I told him he would just have to get use to it and...

    Flat spot at about 4500 rpm.

    Well, the replacement fuel lines seemed to cure the occasional carb leaking on my '85. Been at least 1000 miles with no problems. Bike starts instantly, and runs strong. Yesterday we were out for a ride, and were on a long stretch of divided highway. Cruising between 70-80 mph. At this...

    Flat side carbs sound

    I'm not really familiar with how flat side carbs are meant to sound, so I'm not sure if the sound my bike is making is normal. The carbs "tap" when idling (which is normal) but seem to make a bit of the same tapping noise except louder at a particular rev range (around 3k). Is this normal?

    39mm Flat Side Carbs - how to improve the look

    I recently bought a rebuilt VMax with 2003 running gear on a 1988 frame, and lots of upgrades including a PCW 1500 Tourmaster engine with 39mm flat side carbs. It's a beautiful machine and pushes 163bhp etc. The carbs are great and bring a lot of extra power, but have left the little scallops...

    Flat tire repair

    Just picked up a screw on a brand new (about 200 miles) rear tire. It's was dead center in the tread groove. Has anyone had any luck with some of the patch kits? Do they hold up or should I get a new tire? (Perfect timing as well...supposed to be about 80 and sunny next few days)

    Flat slide carb questions

    I'm about to buy my first max. I have a line on a bike that has Kiehen(spelling) flat slide cards and is using the stock airbox and after market pipes. I don't know what kind of air filter yet. I believe that this is the only engine mod and was done by PCW in NY. I'll be using this bike as a...

    Turbo, fuel injection, and flat side

    Does anyone have any links where i could go to look at the turbo setups? I don't have much interest in installing one, due mostly to the fact that i know very little about mechanic work in any way shape or form. Now don't get me wrong, if i have instructions to follow i can do almost anything...
