Fuel issue-misfire and stall

I had to run regular fuel into my 2006 zx10r and about 2 weeks later in every gear my bike bogged down at 7000 rpms, it tried to buck me off. I changed the spark plugs, cleaned tank, cleaned fuel filter and pump, now it starts up and idles strong but then it misfires and stalls out if nowhere

Oil measure

Hi, I have just gotten back on a MC, as the last time I was on one was back in 1978!  I have just bought a Kawasaki GPZ500S.  Its a 2002 reg.  I have no idea on the workings of it yet as I only bought it last Friday.  And my first drive on it was to drive it back home and that was a 30 mile journey.  I thought I should have been wearing bicycle clips to hold my waste !  I managed it and eventually enjoyed the ride.  My wife came with me and whilst ...

Water contaminated engine

I'm stripping an engine I bought as a spare. It came from a fire damaged bike and some of the water used to put it out has got into the engine.It's a G650X series BMW lump.I've stripped the oil pumps and found emulsified oil in both, just a little so I don't think it was running for long after the water got in.I'm waiting for my flywheel puller to arrive so I can split the cases, but in the meantime I'm after some advice.The mains are plain shell so I'm not worried about corrosion on them. The pressurised oil travels ...

Valve clearances don,t change after shim change!

Hi  I have a Cbr600f 2002 model  with 27000 miles on the clock. It was turned into a track bike in 2011 by a reputable garage with approx 24500 miles showing and sold to the person I bought it from in 2013.  I carried out a service including a valve clearance check, to find by my reckoning most of the clearances to be tight. Exhaust clearances averaged 0.18mm, inlet 0.1 - 0.13mm(haynes manual states exhaust 0.25 - 0.31, inlet 0.17 - 0.23 with cam chain tensioner retracted). Took all the shims (which ranged from 1.975 - 2.12)out, did the necessary ...

Me Again.....

Well, the Lexmoto has packed up again! This time it won't start! I've rung a bike garage in Kings Lynn and they can't fit it in until next week, and it'll be expensive. Therefore would love to do it myself. Plus it's all good experience!So far I've done the following:Checked for a spark and its sparking fine.Noticed the plug was dry so not getting fuel. Checked all fuel pipes for blockages and all seems fine. Checked the vacuum tap on bottom of the tank (sucked on the vacuum hose and fuel comes out of the other nozzle so is fine).Had the carburretor ...
