comment What is the redline for different gears for Peugeot 107 2005 model?
Engine speed its governed by the redline, the gear does not affect the engine speed per se. What type of driving are you doing? racing? commuting? town/highway? basically you should use your ears and have a bit of mechanical sympathy. If it sounds wrong chances are it is.

comment Bent front fork on a bike
I doubt you'd be able to straighten it correctly or well enough to fix the seal leaking. You may be able to pick up a used set of forks on ebay (other auction sites are available) or alternatively you could purchase a set of fork stanchions only (the chrome parts) and get them replaced.

comment Duke 390 Tyre rotation problem
Could also be the brake is seized on... what has changed between the bike running ok and now decelerating of its own accord.

comment Yamaha FZS Ver- 2.0 Engine Seizure
Theres a lot more that requires oil and could have sustained damage, bearings, half shells, piston rings, valves/rockers, cams all require oil to work correctly. Stripping the engine and inspecting each is the only way to correctly repair it.

comment Derbi Cafe 125 stalling when changing to 1st
It can be bypassed (as mine is) however that can lead to potentially catastrophic or comical events where the bike decides to trundle off on its own before falling over (speaking from experience).

comment Yamaha FZ 16 loses smoothness too soon
I'm wondering if its chain adjustment related, could be that its set correctly at the service and never adjusted between? that would certainly account for a lumpy ride.

comment How often can I reinflate my tire
What type of bike is it? 25psi at the front sounds low to me, the ones I've had have always suggested the front be at least the same (if not higher pressure) than the rear.

comment Royal Enfield Classic 350 - Motor Break-in Best Practice
You've got to be careful about the types of oils used. Fully Synthetic oil is known to damage ducatis wet clutches.

comment How do I know if a jump starter is suitable for my car?
Looks like your battery is a 70amp/hr battery and that booster only provides 17.2amp/hr - it wont provide enough cranking power with that amperage even though the voltage is right.

comment Motorbike rear wheel hub reassembly
The grey rubber blocks are part of a "cush drive". It dampens the effect of the chain pulling on the sprocket which in turn pulls the wheel round, without it you would get much harsher forces applied to the drive train.

comment Can I charge a Car Battery with a Motorcycle charger?
A high amp charge could cause problems for a deeply discharged battery so a slow charge should help. My bike charger only charges at 0.5-1amperes as any more could warp the plates in the battery.

Remember the warning, the manual for the car will include a specific speed rating normally, if you go below this it may invalidate your insurance.
