Re: bike not firing!!!

Hello Tammy and welcome to the forum. You can bypass the neutral switch to see if that's the problem (unplug the two wires from the switch and plug them wires together). Or you can try starting the bike while pull the clutch in.
Let's see a picture of your baby.

Re: picking the best tire for the job

I would try a set of Bridgestone Spitfire's. I think you can get them in your size.

Re: 1996 Honda Nighthawk upgrades?

A taller tire like 5ft 9in vrs 6ft 10in.
When you increase the number of teeth on the rear sprocket you get quicker acceleration but lose top speed.
Google is you friend.
70mph is what 5k or less.
I would tell my cousin when he owns the bike he can make the decisions. :group:

Re: 1996 Honda Nighthawk upgrades?

Re: Thinking about pulling the trigger on a 2007 Tank Vision 250cc.....?

Hello Bobby and welcome to the forum. I googled that bike and didn't get any good reviews. If you live in a city and don't ever do any hiway travel at all, and do all your own mech work (because the local independent bike/scooter shop will not work on these) you might get a couple of years out of it...

Re: Song Title Game

Love Me Do - The Beatles

Ok here's a refresher on the game, the song you pick must have one word in common with the previous post. Me and Julio was the previous song and mine was Love Me Do, so the next song will have love, or me, or do in the title.
