Suzuki gs 125z not working :(

Im very new to all this so bare with me. So I bought a suzuki gs 125 from 1982 and recently it is really hard to start most the time (takes 15-20 kicks). Also when sitting idle it will sometimes cut out. And when it cuts out it is even harder to start. Anything I can do?

Somebody Help! Starting troubles!

Hi, I'm new to MCN but feel like I might get a half decent answer from here; local bike garage keeps fobbing me off...I have a Kymco KR Sport 125 - please dont roll your eyes, I'm saving for a big boy bike! Throughout the summer I have no issues starting her up, even at the crack of dawn. When the slightly colder mornings hit, I have a great trouble turning her over! Checked the battery to be shown 12.4V on my voltmeter. All electrics work, just immense trouble starting. The motor will spin a few times and sound promising, ...

Oil leak between head and engine

Hi. I'm not sure about all the correct terms etc but here goes.I have a xr 125 with 16000km on the clock. It has a kind of oil leak between the upper part of the engine and the lower part. what can cause this? how do i fix it (if possible) and does it damage my engine if i leave it like that?In this image the leak would be just above the spark plug's black connector. https://www.google.co.za/search?q=honda+xr+125+engine&biw=1600&bih=804&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=A-EaVLSbIoXD7AbUpoHgBA&ved=0CBsQsAQ#facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=o6SnVAJqnjSZrM%253A%3BDo9_Av-zFMWb-M%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.iol.co.za%252Fpolopoly_fs%252Fiol-mot-gallery-may23-honda-xr125l-11-1.1072646!%252Fimage%252F2716512366.jpg_gen%252Fderivatives%252Flandscape_600%252F2716512366.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.iol.co.za%252Fmotoring%252Fbikes-quads-karts%252Fpicture-tour-of-honda-xr125l-1.1072656%3B600%3B426

1200 Bandit Exhaust Bolt Sheared Off

The exhaust bolt securing one of the inner downpipes (inner RH side looking from the front wheel) has sheared off flush with the block. The exhaust is now off.Has anyone in this sitauation managed to extract the bolt with the engine still in place ? If so how ?It is the bolt nearest to the frame but there is a clean line of sight so it may be possible to get tools in there to do the job.I am happy for a decent garage to do the work if they can do the work with the engine still in place. ...

Honda CB1300 (ABS) 2009

Just came back from a ride and noticed when I turned bike off that there was a strange constant squealing noise along with a strong sulphurous smell coming from it, removed seat and cover which revealed steam/smoke coming from battery, which it seems was causing the smell and noise, battery was really really hot!!! I am right in thinking this would be caused by the reg/reg being knackered or could it be caused by something else?

Split link or Rivet link connector on chain?

Ive got a couple of bikes Enduro 450s reading online it seems that all larger cc bike chains have rivet links and small cc bikes split links. Is there a definitive limit with split links? I recently got a JT power transfer chain from chains and sprockets.com  and the 520 chain came with both a rivet link and a split link, so for my WR450 if i dont need to change chains quickly should I fit the rivet link for better strenght? but then I heard many road racers  also use split links???
