Your Aviator has an ignition coil, rather than a magneto, to generate the spark. That means that it relies on the battery to have enough charge to generate the spark, so likely the ignition is only producing sparks once you've cranked the engine over enough to put a little charge into the battery. Engines with magnetos that generate the spark directly from ...

This happened to my 2007 Honda Pilot, The reservoir has a filter in the bottom that was semi plugged. I cleaned that mess filter and new fluid fixed mine.

I would look at replacing your temperature sensor, as it is telling the computer to turn on fans, But, its not keeping the fans running. Good likelyhood it is defective and there cheap 15-30$ most of the time with exceptions.

I've experienced this exact same thing in my 2004 Honda Civic. Replaced the alternator and all was well.

You said the issue applies to front brakes, hence incomplete retraction is probably not the issue (rear brakes often need to be screwed in rather than pushed in). On front calipers, when the pistons are fully retracted, they should often be flush with caliper body. Are yours flush? If not, try to push them in more. If your pads are of the wrong thickness, ...

If replacing the battery worked then it is the very likely culprit. Batteries die when left for a long time without occasional charging. If the bike starts well after being on charge overnight then the battery is a major likelihood. Valve problems arise in mechanics heads when they need to make some money from you. This type of problem can be best fixed ...

First, replace the battery if you know it's bad. If the engine won't start when "cold," the choke on the carburetor is possibly the problem. Any gasoline engine requires a small amount of fuel enrichment upon starting when the engine is "cold." This is accomplished by the choke mechanism, which partially closes off airflow to the carb with a flap. Reduced ...

It ultimately depends on how cold it is. As jwh20 said, the label will likely say. That said, I couldn't find an exact temp marked on the packaging for the HT stuff. However, it's a little anecdotal, but DAP 100% silicone sealant can be applied as low as -35F and as high as 140F. Since these sealants are "partial drying" types, it would be best not to go ...

I got same problem here on my 2013 CBR 250R too and I fixed it without changing the tank. The filler drain tube that runs through the tank got corroded from inside and opened a hole into the tank leaking petrol down the drain hose. Unfortunately, the hole was on the bottom end so all of my fuel gets drained. What I did was 1. Scrubbed the rust off using ...
