William создал(а) новую тему ' What bike(s) are you actually riding?' в форуме. 10 часа(ов) назад 13 минут(ы) назад

Hi,

Just because I recently discover the wonderful Big&Tall's KTM, I was thinking: "what all the other GT-Riders are they exactly and actually riding?".

Many times (at least for my part, and I guess for others) we know through words what bike is used, or we know some of GT-Riders bikes through meetings or wavings...

But maybe a GT-Riders "bike-review" would be interesting to better know everyone's "character" or "preference"...

Please help.

Thanks!

Hi,

Hi,

I have let it sit too long, and now it has a problem. When I start it, it smokes a little randomly misses a bit, but what I can't get past is there is gas? oil running from the engine into the air box through a hose. I thought maybe the floats were stuck, pulled and cleaned them (they were nasty) and put it back together, but it still does it. I don't know why.

The hose is on top of the head in the center and itgoes to the top of the air box. I have the two lines from the carbs ran correctly to the tank, and there are two lines that run off to the side of the bike like they just drain out? The look beat up on the ends and don't connect to anything. I am going to dump the oil and replace it, but this really concerns me and I can't figure out why it would do that.


Please help.

William создал(а) новую тему ' Test ride on a BMW R1200RT' в форуме. вчера

Hi,

This is a long weekend down here, so I took an extra day off to make a four day weekend. We were going to go away, but muck ups with motel bookings means I've had two days to test ride a BMW R1200RT. Friday I took it out on my own to see if I was happy with it, then today I took my wife out on the pillion to see if it was the bike we wanted for touring on. My wife gets sore hips and knees when riding on my current bike, a Suzuki Boulevard M50, so we thought the longer frame on the R1200RT would allow her more space to position her legs so they don't give her trouble. How did I like it? I went for a a ride of about 120 km/80 miles, 5 km or so up the motorway then nice rural roads that I know and really like for about 60 km/40 miles, turned around and went back. The first thing I noticed about the bike is the height of the seat, the dealership set it up for normal suspension, for one rider (one of nine suspension settings) and with the seat in the lowest position. I was touching the ground with just the front balls of my feet when on the bike, I've got an inside leg measurement of 29". It's not that my legs are short, they bridge the gap between my bum and the ground perfectly, but the seat on the R1200RT is at 780 mm on it's lowest setting. The seat is really comfortable, but wide. I thought that if I bought the bike the first thing I'd do is have the seat modified, reduced in height and have the front made narrower.

Hi,

I've had a 07 ZX10R since new. Still love it and don't plan on selling it. To complement that bike tho, I was thinking of going the 600 route.

2013 636 is what I'm leaning on. But an 09-and up R6 or ZX6R would be cool too. Anybody go from a 1000 to 600?

Love to hear all of your expert opinions on the pros and cons for 1000 vs 600. (I've ridden several 600s, just never owned one) Plan to keep one in Florida .

William создал(а) новую тему ' Motorcycle Course-Real World Excercise?' в форуме. вчера

Hi,

I was the 1st and only one to lay down down a bike. IMO, I was going a bit harder/faster than the others during course riding. it was a circular slolem course. One side had the cones (3x3 square and maybe 2 inches tall) 10ft distance apart of the next one and about 3ft wide lane. The other side, 20ft distance and about 10ft wide lane. What we were supposed to do on the widest area: gain a bit of speed out of cornering, let off the throttle, look toward the next cone and lean the bike around the next one. gained a bit of speed, looked forward at the cone, realized I was about to miss one, slightly braked, turned the wheel, the bike pretty much came to a complete stop and fell over. Me being 6' 4" just stepped away as the bike fell. Not injured. I thought about it afterwards and it seemed like that was one of those school lessons. Where you think wth is this? I'm never going to be doing this in the real world. I know what I did wrong, at least I think I do, and the instructors concurred. I should never had tried to break and turn the bars so tight at the same time.

William создал(а) новую тему ' Waterproof overpants with side zippers?' в форуме. 3 дня(дней) назад

Hi,

What is everyone using for waterproof overpants with side zippers?
My Aerostich AD1 pants are LONG overdue for replacement, and I don't want to repurchase the AD1s. They started out great. Completely waterproof and comfortable. However, the seams at the crotch rapidly (like within months) started coming undone and the lining coming unattached. By the end of the first year, these pants didn't even slow down water getting in at the crotch, let alone being described as waterproof. In addition, the zipper pulls both broke off, and the buttons on the bottom fell apart. It is basically falling apart and I really don't have faith in it protecting me in the event of a crash. I didn't start this thread to bash Aerostich, but I'm including this information because I'm definitely not interested in another AD1. I loved the AD1 at first, and if it had not self-destructed, I would buy another one in a heartbeat. I've also tried the Darien pant, and the fit just didn't work for me. The waistline fits too high for me and it is uncomfortable when I am sitting on a bike (probably doesn't help that I could stand to drop a few pounds).

Please help.

Thanks!

William создал(а) новую тему ' Minimum equipment for long trip?' в форуме. 3 дня(дней) назад

Hi,

What would you all say are the bare minimum essentials that would be on your must bring list for a long ride, let's say 500 miles or more?

so you need to bring enough clothes (weather appropriate) for the duration of your trip. Other than that it gets real subjective. Here's what I carry on my bike regardless of distance. A good first aid kit. A jump pack to jump dead batteries and/or charge your phone. Spare bulbs for every light on the bike. Fuses. Electrical tape. Zip ties and a 12v air compressor. Tools for every fastener on the bike. Rain gear...head to toe. A digital multimeter. A tire patch kit (for tubeless tires) or tubes. Bungie cords to tie stuff down with. Rain covers for everything, including the entire bike. Enough cash to get you home and a credit card hidden on the bike where nobody can possibly find it but you. Tire spoons. A space blanket is a good idea. Water bottles or canteen. Some guys will say 'I never carry anything except for clothes'. I'll be helping them on the side of the road someday. It's happened many times.

Please help.

Thanks!

It's more fun wringing the most out of less than it is walking away when you have overpowering horsepower. For me anyway. If you really want to get into it, a 300 is probably more than plenty on the street, but I won't be giving up the magic carpet ride that is the 675. It boggles my mind that it's a nearly 12 year old bike now. It still seems fresh and new every time I ride it.

Hi,

I'm going camping this weekend and if the weather forecast stays awesome I might ride the Nighthawk to the campground. The only thing that might stop me is the extreme vibration I get at highway speed and totally numbs my right hand on even short 25 mile trips. The total trip is 115 miles each way. Are there any special gloves or grips readily available at typical motor sports stores that could alleviate this problem?

William создал(а) новую тему ' A Brief History of Motorcycles!!!' в форуме. 6 дня(дней) назад

Hi,

The invention of the motorcycle closely followed the development of the bicycle and the four-stroke gasoline engine. German inventor Gottlieb Daimler created the first motorcycle in 1885. Various models were introduced in Germany, France, and Britain in subsequent years, each attempting to turn the motorcycle into a practical means of transportation. In 1903 American inventor William Harley, his neighbor Arthur Davidson, and Davidson?s brothers Walter and William built the first Harley-Davidson motorcycle. A year later Harley-Davidson began manufacturing motorcycles for sale. In 1909 Harley-Davidson introduced the first V-Twin engine, which had two cylinders arranged in a distinctive ?

Hi,

What is some good protection for my knuckles?

I feel like my knuckles are real fragile as whenever I punch either the bag or the mitts by middle and index knuckles seems to feel a quick sharp pain. I was using the $30 Everlast gloves and then bought some Rival Elite Bag Gloves, both at 12oz. I spent $90 on those Rivals and not for nothing the pain seems to be worse, like my knuckles go right though my gloves. I've tried wrapping my hands in differente manners and styles and still nothing. I can't even punch the heavy bag like I want to because the pain is terrible. It seems that when I hit it with even half of power my knuckles feel it and therefore I can't work on my power. And the mitts too, I just can't hit as hard and/or as fast as I wish dut to the pain.

Please help.

William создал(а) новую тему ' Can you finance riding gear with a new bike purcha' в форуме. 6 дня(дней) назад

Hi,

I am just now looking at bikes and gear. I've noticed that the price of gear will add up fairly quickly. If you finance a bike with the dealership, do they let you add gear to the amount you finance? I'm wondering if they treat the gear like dealer installed options on cars. I financed mine with Honda and they said I couldn't add gear to the loan. sometimes it pays to be cheeky - they are making enough out of you anyway and they know you will be back for service, so they can make it worth your while and make sure you stay alive.

William создал(а) новую тему ' Suzuki gs400 ignition wiring help?' в форуме. 7 дня(дней) назад

Hi,

I have recently purchased a Suzuki gs400 engine. It came with everything I need to get it running, coils, igniter, wiring harness, regulator, and such. Now, I have no idea how to get it to spark. I have tested the points on the engine, (I believe that's what its called, the type with the 2 points and a tab on the crankshaft passes very close to them inducing a small current in them, then sends it to the igniter which amplifys it and sends it to the coils) and the points are both putting out small voltage spikes when the engine is spun. I've tested the wires going to the ignition coils and guess how many volts I get? A WHOLE BIG GIGANTIC ZERO. Not even 0.001 of a volt. I've looked at the wiring diagram for hours and everything is in the right place. Now my question, do I need power to the igniter? (Like 12v from the battery) do I need to have any kind of ignition switch? Because I have no gauges or anything. Just some connectors not plugged into anything. The diagram is extremely annoying and hard to follow. How can I test the igniter?


Please help.

Thanks!

William создал(а) новую тему ' 84' Honda VT700 Running Problem?' в форуме. 7 дня(дней) назад

Hi,

So I just bought this bike as a project bike because I'm looking to learn about motorcycle mechanics. I recently cleaned the carbs, changed fuel lines, did an oil change, and got new spark plugs. When i bought it, it would only crank but not start. Now it cranks and starts but idles really low (Low rpm less than 1,000). Whenever i try to give it any throttle what so ever it dies and a small amount of white smoke comes out of the left air intake hole in my carb ( sorry if im not using the right terms im new to repair), All of this is with the choke completely open. I have also noticed that the same intake that the white smoke is coming from has greater suction (compression im assuming) than the other side. I've run a compression test on the engine and have gotten a constant 140 PSI. Any help is greatly appreciated.

William создал(а) новую тему ' Good idea for a first bike?' в форуме. 7 дня(дней) назад

Hi,

I am currently very new to motorcycle riding (haven't gone to my first class yet), and was wondering if the bike I am saving up for is reasonable for a beginner. The bike i'm looking at is the Kawasaki Versys 650. I have gone to a dealership already and checked it out. Both my feet can reach the floor (all be it on the ball of my foot) when the bike is standing up straight, and my foot reaches the ground comfortably when tilted to the side. I find the seat comfortable, and everything is in reach. (It also has a digital speedometer, which is nice.) I'm relatively new also. I took the MSF class here (Team Oregon). I had never really ridden a motorcycle before worth mentioning. High school friend had a Honda XR500 that I briefly rode and dropped. I recommend the class. Totally worth it in my opinion. With that said, my first bike is the Suzuki version of the one you're looking at, the V-Strom 650. I don't have any experience to compare it to, but it does feel a bit top heavy.

Hi,

I came back to SL recently after a break and it's been at least 3 years, possibly more since I have purchased a motorcycle and wanted to get peoples opinions on some of the current creators and who are good. I believe my go to creator years ago was MotorLoon, are there any other places worth taking a look at. I bought the Extreme Superbike and I love it. It was previously 4800L and now only 777L. Even before the price drop, it was a popular bike. He used to have them out on display in-world but I think he no longer does. JC Hill is the creator and in my dealings with him in the past, he was super friendly and helpful. The product has a ton of reviews, so that should help give you an idea of what to expect.
