New exhaust fitting but not sure if its is fitting

I need a very quick answer as I don't wanna take everything apart again! Can I run the engine without the radiator connected for a few mins? The reason is that I am not sure the front pipes I connected are correctly made! They don't seem to be square on and showing the ring. So I need to make sure that they run smoothly enough that I don't have to strip everything down again to get to the damn nuts!

Tyre pressure guages, what to believe?

 I had a new tyre fitted and when I got home to check with "pencil type" guage it showed 25psi.  I did a check because  the steering did feel a little unusual. My bike needs 32psi.So I've been back to the dealer who were very helpful they did work on the tyre and upon return I whipped out my pencil tyre pressure guage in front of the manager, I asked "what the tyre was inflated to?" he say 32 psi, I did the test and it was 37psi So he went into ...

Woman rider, first bike, 1000cc??

I'm doing my DAS at the moment, enjoying it, and considering what bike to buy. My instructor recommended, since I want to do touring and long distances on motorways, that I get nothing smaller than a 900-1000cc. However, I have a gravel drive, and a ramp up to a single garage, and I'm concerned about manouvering that sort of weight.A friend recommends a BMW F800, with a low seat. But I'm not *that* small. Is a 1000cc first bike for a woman a nuts idea? Has anyone any experience / recommendations?Thanks,Jake

Suzuki Marauder GZ125 spluttering/cutting out

I wonder if anyone could give me a hand diagnosing this problem. I'm unlucky enough to be on my third 125 within a year, having had to get rid of a couple as the problems cost more to fix then they were worth. At the moment I have a GZ125 and it's not without it's faults. At the moment it's tending to hate third gear and when I try to change it up from first (about 10mph) to 3rd (About 25mph) it will intermittently begin to splutter and drastically loose power or just shut down altogether. ...

2007 Kawasaki ER6F Electrics

I've got an ER6F and until now it has been very reliable. I commute in all weathers and it has been bulletproof.After recent heavy rain and lack of use (3 days without being run and stored outdoors uncovered) it struggled to start.On the 4th attempt it suddenly dropped all electrical power and hasnt shown signs of life since.Some people have suggested it might be the battery but the loss of power was instant, almost like someone had hit the kill switch (no, I have checked that) but I would expect battery issues to be more gradual?Anyone any thoughts?

Yamaha xt 125 hard to start

Hello,I'm new around here and i have some difficulties with my backup motorcycle. It's a Yamaha XT 125 2006. It's very hard to start when cold no matter if i kickstart it or use the electric starter.
