    Younger generation is in trouble

    My wife and I took our kids and one of their friends to a double feature at the drive in theatre last night. Great time with the family! The show was over at 1AM. As we were leaving I noticed a young couple had their hood open. I continued to pack up our stuff and told my wife to run...

    Duke University is famous for its science and engineering programs, as well as its dominance in college basketball. Now, it may also become known as a great place for men to gather and contemplate why they’re such horrible people. The Duke Men’s Project, launched this month and hosted by...

    Trouble with cyl #3

    I have a 50 mile commute to work and ended up taking a new way back that had some hills. With the extra load, I found that the amount of shaking from the bike was not bearable in 5th or 4th gear if the engine was spinning around 4000 rpm and I applied throttle to go faster. When I got home, I...

    Engine problem

    On my way home from thunder my bike shut down about 40 miles from home. I stopped for gas and it was running fine, when I started it up ten minutes later and went to take off, there was no power at all. I felt like I was riding a scooter. I couldn't figure it out, it wasn't making a bunch of...

    Scooter Trouble

    So long story short, we are trying to sell a 2006 Tank 150cc scooter on CL. The problem is that after sitting for a year it has developed a god-awful noise when ridden. At any speed above ~5mph it gets this nasty metal on metal screech. I can rev it all I want, but the noise doesn't start...

    Fuel Pump Trouble

    Guys, I had a problem with my Vmax (1990) and my mechanic said it could be the Fuel Pump and Fuel Pump Relay. And so we did order the parts abroad by giving the Year Model, Engine, and Chassis number of the bike. But when the parts came to my doorstep, the Fuel Pump Relay sent was different...

It started out as a complete collapse but the bike would re-start after several minutes. It's since degenerated into a complete lack of spark but he gets the...

    Trouble Re-Installing Kerker Header

    Hey guys, I took off my exhaust to have it ceramic coated. (Looks awesome!) Anyway, putting it back on, I can get the front exhaust bolted back in. The exhaust gaskets seem to actually stick out of the recess and I can't push the pipe on enough to start the nuts over the collars. :bang...

    Trouble with Neutral...

    I've only had my Vmax out a handful of times since picking it up a few months ago. I really only have one issue with the bike. It's damn near impossible to get into neutral. Has anyone experienced the same problem and how to fix it? Thanks
