Re: Help Me Please

Remove the spark plugs and spray carb cleaner into the cylinder. Replace the plugs, start engine and see if you can tell if the cyliders are hitting. If so you may have feul delivery issues.

You can only be sure of that if you grow it yourself. Lots of vegies come from Mexico.

BTW if I had the bill$, I would ride a harly. It would not be a sporter either.

Sounds like the problem is in the ignition switch or you starter brushes are worn down. Hope this helps you.

You are going down to a gear that is too low for the speed that the bike is running. That is causing the bike's rear tire to slide on the road. For now just ride the bike and down shift when you have slowed down quite a bit, later that you are used to riding better it will come natural to down shift...

Be careful, I had one years back and it ran over 100 mph. okay 115 mph. It was a great running little bike, but I had to replace the chain rather often.

It is not too much for your size. I am 5'3'" and have ridden one. It was not to much bike for me, but it was a bit big framed for my size. And with your training you should be okay.

I have a 750 vulcan and I was looking at the boulavard 50, but my bike feels like it needs a higher gear too. So maybe that is not the bike for me.

If it was still in production, the Vulcan 750. Best price and features in its cc class. I don't compare it to the 900's as the same class. With a 150 cc's you have enough engine for a whole other bike. I started on a 125 dual purpose actually a minibike it that counts :laughing: Quarter-mile accele...

In most cases the oil is still doing it's job even with high miles on it. For what it cost for a bike oil change, who wants to run really black dirty looking oil in thier engine.
