kawasaki ninja 500r, 2004 kawasaki ninja 500r, brake bias: Aaron, good choice for a first bike!

motorcycle class, plastic bodywork, motorcycle insurance: I think getting a moped or scooter for commuting and running errands is a terrific idea.

Motorcycle Safety & Driveability: Shadow Valves?, honda shadow, cam chain
honda shadow, cam chain, shadow 1100: Steve, Thanks for the question. From your description, it does sound like some valve noise, and perhaps a cam chain is a bit loose (that would cause the rattle). However, since I can t give it a listen first hand, it s hard for me to be real precise....

Motorcycle Safety & Driveability: Slide on wet pavement, rear wheel speed, wet pavement
rear wheel speed, wet pavement, lean angle: Sorry for the delay in answering this, but notification of your question never got to me by e-mail. I just picked it up while answering another.

Motorcycle Safety & Driveability: Slight crash needs repair, honda shop, honda shadow
honda shop, honda shadow, corrugated plastic: Sounds like coolant. It is very bad to run the engine without coolant. It s analogous to pulling a hot dish out of the oven without oven mitts!

Motorcycle Safety & Driveability: Slime sealant, wheel balance, long distances
wheel balance, long distances, slime: Hi Gary I do not know any serious biker that will recommend slime. Wheel balance is a critical part of handling and anything that can affect it (with time) is a no-no. A can of tyre foam that you can keep in your backpack and use when you do get a flat...

honda shadow, safety tip, trailer hitch: I am not familiar with the art and mechanics of pulling a trailer. I ve never seen a bike with a trailer that s smaller than 1100cc. There s probably a reason for that. However, if you re not carrying a passenger, I can t see how a 200-lb trailer would...

suzuki gsxr 600, kawasaki ninja 500, suzuki gs500: The Hayabusa and ZX14 are bikes to aspire to, but they will not be good beginner bikes. Your experience on the 150 will be a good start.

honda 600 hornet, suzuki sv 650, 150cc moped: If you can hire a motorcycle to do your training course, do that first.

Motorcycle Safety & Driveability: Stopping in a turn, speed limit, intersections
speed limit, intersections, no worries: My strategy would be to position myself and set up a new line through the turn that allows me to approach the light as straight as possible.

Motorcycle Safety & Driveability: Stopping while in a turn, handle bars, good question
handle bars, good question, brakes: Very Very good question if you are in a turn you would want to use more rear brake than front brake. If you lock up the front brake you could go over the handle bars or the front tires would not be able to turn as well. But in most cases I would keep more...

suzuki vz800 marauder, suzuki katana 750, suzuki gsx: I d check the wires from the CDI to the coils, and from the pick-up coils to the CDI. You could simply use a jumper wire to check these.

honda cb 650, bad tire, quality checks: Rod, Thanks for the question. The way I read it, I m pretty sure the tire is not balanced. Whatever shop you took it to either has a bad balancing system, or someone does not know how to work it, or both. There really is no way to check if a tire...

suzuki katana 600, stainless steel valve, 2002 suzuki katana 600: I have never heard of a valve stem tearing off, nor have I heard of any problems like that resulting from the use of the TireFlys.

Motorcycle Safety & Driveability: Tires, michelin pilot, oil crayon
michelin pilot, oil crayon, radial tires: That is a toughie. I can only speculate on this one. I personally would not run a tire labeled as a rear on a front, or vice versa. I am going to assume you already have the same type of Bridgestone on the back, or plan to. It s not advisable to mix and...

nylon straps, personalized plates, tie down straps: It will be simplest if you rent a truck to haul the bike home.

Motorcycle Safety & Driveability: Tuinning, portland oregon usa, honda model
portland oregon usa, honda model, usa product: I m not familiar with a Honda model called the CD-70, but it sounds like a small bike.

suzuki katana 600, motorcycle safety course, riding dirt bikes: Even though the Kat 600 is on the tame side of sportbikes, a 600 inline-four sportbike is NOT appropriate for beginners.

Motorcycle Safety & Driveability: tire position, weight bias, relative weights
weight bias, relative weights, sport bikes: I don t know. That would be a question for the tire manufacturer.
