Im working on TCI ( TRANSISTOR (IGBT) CONTROLLED IGNITION) my bike stock tci goes max to 12000 rpm. i decided to increase the speed so i looked at racing cdi. People says it dosent lock the rpm after ceartain recommended level. But there is one more thing which take place to limit the rpm and that is Ignition coil. In some days I made my own transistor ...

Have you checked how much a generic brake cylinder-lever-tank would cost locally for your bike(handlebar diameter) - with a new holder for the mirror? You might be surprised. I would just buy a generic (chinese) replacement for the whole part, can't be worse than that madmaxed piece of kit.

Given the state of that then I would grind the other side and use a big chisel and matching hammer to crack the last bit - always worked in the past.

Consider moving the new bracket to the left of the old one or grinding the old one off, which means you won’t have to mess around with a safety critical system... If your “bodge” on your throttle cable fails halfway into a fast corner - what direction will you be taking?

This comports with my basic understanding of the term. On the other hand we are advised to adjust the chainsaw carburetor for power and not for speed, with power referring to best performance while actually cutting wood, under load. Adjusting for speed may result in too lean a mixture.

We "warm up" vehicles for a number of reasons: An engine that has sat will have had some degree of drain down - the oil will have drained off all the critical moving parts and won't be able to provide any protection until the oil pump has run for several seconds. Also, cold oil is thicker and has different properties than warm oil. Getting the oil pumped ...

My Kawasaki owner's handbook stated that it should not be idled for more than 5 minutes when started. However the dealer advised me to let it warm up for a few minutes (by idling, not revving), especially in cold weather. Partly so the oil can warm enough to circulate freely, and because of tight engineering tolerances in machined parts, which are not ...

For a late model car, you want to start it, buckle up, turn on the heater, radio and then drive with a light foot. Warming up a late model car warms the coolant, but not the oil. The fastest way to warm the oil and increase oil flow it to drive it, not idle it. See this post https://ricksfreeautorepairadvice.com/warm-engine-winter/

Where did you test the AC voltage? In the leads coming out of the stator? Or the leads coming into the regulator? It's possible there's a short/bad wire on the AC wires between the stator and the regulator. Where did you test the DC voltage? In the leads directly coming out of the regulator? Perhaps there is a short somewhere there. Was the regulator ...

The virago carburetors are somewhat tricky to clean properly. I have an 86 Virago 700, which has a "tube jet" instead of just a pilot jet. I had to use the properly sized guitar string to clean these out. Carb clean wasn't enough. Also, there's some bad advice floating out to drill out the pilot jets. It's possible your carbs have these drilled out ...

The battery could be discharging because there's a problem with the bike's wiring that is causing a constant load on the battery, even when the bike is not running. This can happen when accessories are added directly to the battery versus through a switched circuit (i.e. the ignition). It could also be discharging simply because it's old and worn out (...

Power = volts X amps. A smaller capacity battery will generally deliver less cold cranking amps (CCA) than a larger capacity battery. By reducing the amps delivered by the battery you are reducing the power it can deliver to crank your starter, so you could have problems starting up or running under a high electrical load. If the 4Ah battery has the same ...
