Do you have a Pulsar 220? If so, you probably don't want two full-blown headlights, if the electrical system on a 220 is anything like that of the 135LS. On my bike, the electricals can barely keep up with all the lights on, plus both signal lights blinking (unless I raise the idling speed). You should probably look into adding accessory lights, instead. ...

A quick and easy industry method for determining sources of leaks is to clean the suspected area thoroughly with heavy degreaser (brake cleaner, carb cleaner, kerosene) and then spray the suspect area with Tough Actin' Tinactin. Start the motorcycle and let it warm to operating temperature. Keep a close eye on the area you just sprayed. The tinactin will ...

An FYI it is a very bad idea to use automobile oil in your motorcycle. The reason behind this is because auto oil often has additives in it that when used in a motorcycle with a wet clutch (which most do) will wreak havoc on your clutch. Given that, auto oil filters may be comprised of more fibers/elements that can perhaps cause higher/lower oil pressures ...

First you need to dislodge it. I would use something like this tool: Then, before you go to remove the spark plug, take a shop vac and vacuum the piece out of there. If you hold the shop vac's hose half-way over the hole, the air turbulence should remove the small piece of debris. Also, if the piece is ferrous in nature, the hook I showed above should ...

My only suggestions would be: Use compressed air, as Zaid suggested Use a narrow screwdriver Make sure you don't lose it - worthwhile getting a closer look at it to see if you can identify where it came from!

From your description I'd suspect an electrical fault. Maybe a fine crack in a circuit or a broken soldered joint. With enough heat the gap opens enough to break the circuit. You could try swapping components from another bike to help isolate the problem in a process of elimination.

Running without an exhaust will cause the bike to run a little leaner. if its already lean you may be overheating the engine (correct air/fuel mix also cools the cylinders) which in turn will affect the oil which will also affect the engine. Watery oil to me means one thing, its broken down so is thinner than it should be and not lubricating how it should. ...

The issue could be a vacuum forming in the fuel tank (check vents), looking at the yamaha site, it doesn't look like you have any active cooling (fan/radiator) so unlikely to be that. There may also be an air-hose leaking somewhere or possibly a vacuum leak from the intake manifold.

The first thing I think of when I hear 'watery oil' is a bad head gasket. That could cause a lot of the issues you are experiencing. we have escaped like noise from the motor Can you explain what that means? I wonder if it could be something simple like an oil change, all fluids or maybe even needs more water. It might be a good idea to change ...

Nylogrip ZRY is the model. 100/80 is the width in mm and 80 the height as a percentage of the width. Going to a 90/90 will change the arc profile and affect turn-in on the bike. R15 means the wheel is 15 inches in diameter. You should ensure you meet the manufacturers criteria for tyres as insurance companies have been known to cause issues if you fit an ...

Upgrading the suspension to that of a heavier bike may not be such a good idea. The rear suspension of the bike would become stiffer and that will not solve your back-ache. A faulty suspension will cause back ache, yes. But in your case you confirmed it with the service center. The reasons for you back pain could be mainly because of the riding position on ...
