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???

Suzuki GSXR K3 750 noise

Hi,I have a Suzuki GSXR K3 750 which started with a tapping noise coming from the right side crank case. I first thought this to be the cam chain been loose due to the cam chain tensioner been faulty.After replacing this the noise was still present. In the end I got the right side crank case removed and found the crankshaft counter weight to be loose. 3/4 machined screws which had worked themselves out and could have potentially locked the engine up.After some research I found the same issue on a 2011 GSXR 600 in America. Can you please tell ...

Powervalve stiff after rebore

Hi all, does anyone have experience of filing down powervalves after a rebore. After having a .5mm oversize piston fitted my right powervalve only is rather stiff to spin freely or connected to the shaft and its baffling me. The left one seems fine, i have used my spare set right one but still the same. I really dont want to peg the valves open or buy a new cylinder thats plated. Any ideas what i could do on this anyone?

Can't get 6th gear - Yam Diversion

HelloI recently bought a 1997 Yamaha XJ 600 S Diversion, and although it was relatively old it seems very lightly used and in fairly good condition.After a month of use with no problems I noticed in some online info that it should have 6 gears. I can only get 5 on mine. Trying to change up into '6th' just feels like there is not another gear there. The lever shifts but no more gears. I am 99% sure I am not counting incorrectly, and it feels ok, but it's a bit of a nagging worry now.Can anyone give me any ideas of ...

Replacing all bulbs with LED (including Headlight) - Connections, AC -> DC Conversion?

Dear MCN Experts Team!I am the proud owner of the Vietnamese version of the Honda ANF Innova 125i. While it might not inspire bike envy in most, it treats me well and I love it to bits.At the moment I am in the middle of converting the lighting system. I have found LED replacements for the winkers, brake/tail light, parkers, and headlight. While I understand that there may be those who dislike LED headlights, there is very little policing of laws regarding modifications here and I am convinced that the bulb will be an upgrade from the current one (single ...
