A Good Ground All the coils on that bike want are a good ground. If you can find a good spot on the frame to mount them that isn't in the way you are good. Feel free to weld a couple of tabs onto a random convenient spot anywhere on the good iron from that you can. Best of luck.

Chilljeet has a good answer, but it's also partially a safety thing. When you're slowing down to a stop, you're clicking down in the gears until you can't click down anymore. If the bottom gear was neutral, you're a sitting duck until you can get back in gear if someone is coming up behind you at a high speed. You need to be in gear and able to react ...

Look at it this way, the sequence is indeed linear - 1-2-3-4 and so on, with the neutral sitting in-between 1st and 2nd gear. Which means, to shift to neutral from 1st gear (or down from second), one has to gently nudge the shifter into neutral, else it would directly jump to 2nd gear. This is desire-able as one generally doesn't need to shift to neutral ...

No one has mentioned that the schrader valve could be leaking air too. Older valves may have their rubber seals deteriorate over time and leak. When you do the soapy water test, you might want to try putting some over the schrader valve area as well.

The tube that draws fuel out of the tank is not at the absolute lowest point of the tank. This means that when the fuel runs almost dry, the last few drops won't be picked up. That could be because of airlocking or there is a contour in the tank that leaves a small amount of fuel inaccessible. In your case, there is 1.2l of unaccessible fuel. This ...

You should fill your tires as often as they need filled. Checking your tires once a week is a good maintenance schedule. If, while doing your checks, you discover one or both are low, add some air to them. If you discover there is a continual loss of pressure, you'll need to get the tires checked for leaks as @DukatiKiller suggests. There is no reason to ...

Background There is no air pressure relationship between the front and rear tire. Possibility It may sound coincidence but it appears you have two tires that are leaking. To troubleshoot the issue, fill the tires to 40+ psi. Have a bucket with soapy water and a rag or sponge handy and cover the surface area of the tires with the soapy water. You will ...

I'm not sure if it is everything, but it looks like I had some kind of short (vs break) in one of the ignition coils. My multimeter confirmed this, as did my sense of smell.. Burning plastic is never a good sign, especially under the gas tank. When I pulled that coil the other side started getting a regular spark. Now I'm off to find a set of aftermarket ...

I have a Yamaha SZR bike, 4 year & I use to change it every 8000 KM. It has orange paper air filter. I use a method to clean air filter every 1500 KM & it really works if you do it carefully. It takes time. Put the air-filter for 3-4 hour in detergent solution in a bucket & you can see a huge amount of dirt & dust in the bottom of bucket. ...

I think you won't go far wrong by following Ducati Killers' advice. I started motorcycling in the mid fifties when every new or rebuild had to be "run in". The best advice I can offer is don't red line it untill you have at least 1,500 miles. Change the oil and filter every 500 miles for the first 1,500. Don't let the engine "labour" keep it spinning, no ...
