hi
this issue is just general lack of maintenance
some of these had a drum brake and some had a disc brake
either way your braking system is dirty and needs a service
it is a case of trial and error
by removing the brake peddle you can slide the pivot in and out of the hole
there may be some corrosion on this
so with emery clothe you can clean it up
give it a slight coating of grease the put it back
do this with all moving parts going down to the rear brake
ie: take off clean and put some grease on it
at no point get any grease on either your brake disc or brake pads
same as drum and drum brake pads

hope this helps

2008 Piaggio MP3... | Answered on Oct 17, 2018


this is a common problem with a lot of motorcycles
there is a break in the main ignition wire
and the break is probably down by your head stock (front of the frame where the triple tees bolt on)
after a while wiring goes stiff and brittle and sometimes cracks and where the bike front end moves about the wiring sometimes cracks
just to check that start your bike and move the front end around from left to right
and see if it cuts out
if it is ok i would check your fuel air mixture
check for leaks in the inlet manifold
for a get you home idea use a condom as a temporary measure
remove the carb and remove the inlet manifold
slide the condom over the inlet manifold
cut a hole in the end of the condom
refit the inlet manifold nice and tight
slide the carb back in place and fit the air filter
this is just a temporary measure
and is no way a permanent fixture
and will do until you get a new inlet manifold

hope this helps

hi
im not sure if that is your starter
sounds more like the starter clutch
and for that you will need to remove your clutch cover
also the clutch cage
the starter clutch is located behind the clutch cage
remove the clutch cage
and the starter clutch is either on the rear of the cage or a separate unit
it looks like a ring the size of the clutch cage
and has slots in it with roller bearings the slide in and out the often stick because of old oil residue
and if they stick it stops your starter engaging with the clutch housing to turn your engine over
hope this helps

hi you would be better off upgrading to lockheed or girling brake hoses
they are slightly smaller bore than the standard
and improve braking by a hell of a lot
you can also get them made in what ever size you want

hi depending what bike it is all bikes are different
some bikes the carbs have little diaphragms fitted under a panel on the side of the carburetor
if the diaphragm has a tiny hole in it that can make your bike react like that
other than that a plug breaking down
or ignition timing may be out a little but that could also be down to a plug breaking down

Have you check the Engine Control Unit? Fuel injection systems are generally electronic and are controlled by a small computer. If it fails it would stop the engine running. The fact that the bike starts with externally supplied fuel would point towards an ECU problem.

Hi, Shotofgold and the usual suspects are:
1. Contaminated or faulty speed sensor.
2. Faulty turn signal module.
3. Corroded, broken or loose connector pins/sockets in the wire harness between the speedometer and the ECM or TSSM and the sensor.
4. The speedometer unit has failed.
5. Speedometer instrument fuse has blown.

Hi, Chuck you need "FIVE" things in order for a cylinder to run properly:
1. FUEL: in order to validate your not getting fuel spray some starting fluid into the air cleaner and hit the starter button, if it fires up and runs for a few seconds then you know you have a fuel delivery issue. Multi carb banks should be bench "SYNC"
2. SPARK: remove the spark plug and with it connected to the spark plug cable ground the threads to something metal you should see a bluish white spark if not you have a faulty spark plug, spark plug cable, ignition coil, condenser, CKP, ECM, sensor or the wiring in between.
3. COMPRESSION: you must have at least 80-100 PSI for most bikes, multi-cylinder engines should be within 10-15% of each other if not perform a leak down test you may have a burnt or bent valve or hole in the piston or broken rings.
4. CAM TIMING: confirm your timing marks are aligned to see if the cam chain or adjuster are worn out and the chain has skipped a couple teeth.
5. IGNITION TIMING: on older bikes check to see if your points have not closed up, timing plate has not become loose and confirm with a timing light for proper retard and advance functions, on newer bikes where timing is controlled by an ECM and is nonadjustable check you CKP, TPS, MAP, O2, sensor or its counterpart for integrity.
