All about Motorcycle Parts

Motorcycle GPS

When you hop on your motorbike, it’s important that you know where you are headed, and this new gadget can help get you there. There are now multiple GPS devices that are specifically designed to be used by motorcyclists on the road. These gadgets are compact, waterproof, and some even have integrated headset connectivity so you can hear the spoken directions inside your helmet. In this new age of technology where it is rare to find someone using an actual paper map, this might be the most obvious investment to improve your riding experience.

Handlebar Warmers

When it’s cold outside, riding your bike might not seem like the most appealing mode of transportation, but if it happens to be your only option, handlebar warmers can make your ride much more enjoyable. This gadget attaches to your handlebars and the heating wires slide right under the grip so you don’t have to worry about keeping them in place or ruining the aesthetic of your motorcycle. These can be used on any bike with any type of

Take Care Of Motorbike

Motorbike tires

Motorbike tires not only determine how well you handle the motorbike, they also affect fuel consumption of the bike. When the tires are worn out you have a hard time controlling the bike. You also tend to consume more fuel. To be safe and consume less fuel, you should regularly check the tires for wear and tear. If they are badly worn out you should replace them.

Motorbike chain

If your motorbike has a chain you know how important it is. Since it’s always rotating you should regularly lubricate it. According to experts, a chain that isn’t properly lubricated gets easily damaged due to excess heat. The heat damages the separate links making the chain loose.

This can be dangerous as the chain can fall off while you are riding at high speed. To be safe you should regularly lubricate the chain with high-quality lubricants. It’s also wise that you regularly take your motorbike to a mechanic for chain inspection and tightening. The mechanic will also help you know when it’s time to replace the chain.

Performance Engine Building

Replace the Camshafts

If fuel is the lifeblood of an engine, the camshaft is the heart. Therefore, giving your machine a stronger will help determine the amount of power your engine produces. The camshaft also affects where within the RPM range the maximum power will be achieved. Replacing the camshafts with higher-quality parts is generally the easiest and least expensive way to increase an engine’s performance, though it can become more costly if you replace other parts and do a little machining along the way.

Increase Compression

Increasing the compression ratio in your engine involves changing the ratio of the maximum piston volume to the minimum compressed volume of the fuel and air mixture in your engine. As a result of the increased compression, the fuel and air burn faster. In turn, this increases both horsepower and torque across the entire RPM range. As a secondary benefit, it also helps your engine burn more cleanly and efficiently. Some methods for increasing compression include surfacing the head, installing a thinner head or base gasket, decking the cylinder or using pistons with a different profile. When raising compression,

Why you seriously need a personal injury lawyer as consultant?

Physical injuries happened quickly. Be it a traffic accident, an externally indebted sports accident or indeed an assault. Especially if you have suffered a serious injury you are often in a difficult personal and financial situation. Personal injury lawyer Durham supports you from the beginning to prove the causation and the enforcement of your claims for damages. For this the consultation of a doctor to document the health impairments by certificates is inevitable. It is also imperative that a lawyer specializing in personal injury and medical law performs the damage quantification.

The first does not have to be the best

An online search is convenient because on the pages of lawyers are often already opening hours and information about the qualification. Not all lawyers can be found over the net. And the lawyer the search engine calls first does not necessarily have to be good.The material damage usually exceeds the compensation by far. It is necessary that a specialist in medical law picks up the individual points and so painstakingly calculates and asserts the damage. Only claims that are claimed are also replaced. On top of this there are capitalization issues that can

Maintenance For Dirt Bike Winter Season

If your bike has a carburetor, drain the tank, fuel lines, and carburetor bowl. To do this right, keep the gas cap off completely for 24 hours to dry everything out. If you don’t, there will be some leftover fuel. This usually turns tacky and just ends up blocking the jets which, of course, can affect the running efficiency or performance of your motorbike.

Remove old oil. Over time, a running engine’s oil changes from a clean, gold-colored fluid to dirty, black sludge. In just a few months’ time, the contaminants in old oil can corrode into some engine parts and do some serious damage. As such, don’t forget to change the oil and filter plug before storing your ride this winter season to avoid a troublesome situation later on.

Consider running the bike for a few minutes every week. By following this tip, you will prevent fuel from “sleeping,” and if you rev the bike up several times a week, fuel would course through the jets and this will keep the jets clean throughout the winter.

Look after the bike’s tires. If possible, store your bike with the tires off the ground. This is

DeFrosting Car Windows

Use a de-icer – perhaps the easiest thing you can do is to purchase a commercial de-icer. These specially formulated de-icing fluids are largely available throughout the winter, and they do a decent job at removing accumulated ice on your car windows. But you can also make your solution, as it is not that hard. You just need to use rubbing alcohol and a few drops of dish soap. Use a spray bottle and invert several times to mix the solution well. Spray it on the frosted parts of the window and wait. It shouldn’t take more than a few minutes for the solution to work. Finally, use a scraper to remove the softened ice. If any areas are giving you trouble, apply more de-icer.

Use a credit card – if you lack a de-icer, you can resort to more basic methods that involve tools at hand. A credit card naturally comes as a suitable solution, because of its shape. However, don’t expect miracles and try to aid yourself as much as possible by starting your car and turning the defroster. Leave it running and get to work. Grab a credit card you know it’s safe to

Pay for Emergency Car Repairs

1. Be Prepared

The best way to avoid an emergency is to be prepared for an emergency. If you can set aside a little bit of money each month in case of any emergency (be it medical, automotive, or accident), then you will be able to manage any unexpected situations. However, if the time has come and you haven’t planned ahead, there are still some ways that you can get money.

2. Stay Calm

One of the most common mistakes that is made during emergencies is to lose your cool. If you lose your cool, you might forget to use common sense. Use your common sense to shop around. Even if you need a tow right now, consider calling a few places for quotes before having them send someone over. The ten minutes that it takes you to make some comparisons might save you twenty dollars or more. That makes the use of time well worth your money. Remember, you will be late anyway, so take your time in getting there.

When the tow truck driver arrives, be sure that you know where you want to have your car towed. You should also do

Road Tripping

before embarking on a trip like this. Give your entire ride a solid once-over to save yourself some trouble on the road. Make sure fluid levels are correct, be it the coolant, the oil, or the brake fluid. Inflate the tires properly if needed, and make sure the elements of the chassis are in their best working order as well as the controls. It’s also a good idea, small as it is, to make sure the stand isn’t bent or cracked and is solid enough to support the bike. By making sure all these bases are covered before embarking on your journey, you could potentially save yourself a lot of unnecessary hardships while you’re out on the road.

Get Your Gear Right

If you’ve got a touring bike, you have the advantage of having built-in storage on your side whether or not it’s one of your new or used motorcycles. If this isn’t you, however, you’ll soon find that a simple backpack won’t cut it for storing everything you will want to have in terms of supplies. Saddlebags and tank bags are great options to ensure you have everything you need in one convenient place. These

Compare Bikes Suited for You

What are the first few things you would have to add to your list and more importantly, how would you decide before you even start a bike comparison? When you compare bikes, you need to ace out the top few things you feel would be most important for you as a user. What features you would want to get onto the list of the most important features?

Engine capacity: This is without doubt the first thing you add because it means you have the basic and most important part of your bike decided – the engine. You would want to base this on the kind of person you are. Do you want a really super powered bike that is going to fill your need for speed or do you compare two wheelers completely on design? That pretty much defines so much of what you think is perfect for yourself. When you have a bike comparison with the engine capacity right on top, you are keeping yourself as grounded as it gets. If you are looking for use in a city, you want a bike that is not really powerful but enough to get you through the traffic

Info ofDifference in Motorcycle Parts

Original Equipment Manufacturer

Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) is a term used to mean a replacement made by the original manufacturer of the component, not by the builder of the motorcycle. For example: your battery was built by a different company than the one that built your motorcycle. So, if you replace your battery from the same company that made the original, you’re buying an OEM part. This is true whether you’re buying a carburetor or shock absorbers. OEM items are usually more expensive. When you take your motorcycle to a dealership, you know you are getting an OEM component.

OEM Standards

When you buy a part from a national retailer, the OEM displayed on the piece may be followed by the phrase “meets OEM standards.” The original maker does not produce these parts. The company making the piece is claiming to have made the product to the original specifications and standards used by the original company. These items usually cost less than the original.

Aftermarket Parts

The original manufacturer does not make these units. Some companies make these items to function the same as the originals, or in some cases, to work better

Heater Core Problems

Playing with the heat settings does no good and a check of the coolant, hoses, and connections reveals that everything is okay. So, what is the problem? More than likely your Ford heater core has died. You jump in your car and head directly over to your Ford dealer to get a price on a new heater core. Within moments you are gasping for air as the man behind the counter looks over his computerized inventory and quotes an outrageously high price. For a moment you don’t know whether to whack the guy over the head or start driving around with a portable heater you plug into your car’s cigarette lighter. Quickly you dismiss either option and decide to take matters into your own hands.

Fortunately a heater core isn’t all that difficult to change yourself. For most cars, a heater core can be reached by pulling out the dash or checking under the hood adjacent to the firewall, locating the unit, yanking it out, and replacing it with a new one. Naturally, you will pay gobs of money through your dealer’s parts department, but you have other options besides visiting the dealer or making a futile

Info of Repairing Car Damage

Skilled car damage repairers earn almost four folds of what novice repairer gets. Statistics show that of the 223,000 automotive repairers in 2004, 10% of them, the skilled automotive repairers earn more than $28.45 per hour. This is about four times what the less skilled repairer’s get, which is about $9.42 per hour.

If we then compare it to the median per hour rate of company executives which is about $29.75 per hour, you probably pair enough in take-home money because being in the business of repairing car damage, you do not need to wear a suit and tie, and get stressed to much thinking of how you will run the business. You may also need to worry about the life of all the people in your company. You thus sport a stressful lifestyle, although from a distance, you may look far better than blue-collar workers. You may have the power to command as a company executive but you do not have the coziness of a blue-collar job. You may be more stressed as compared to skilled car damage repairers.

On the other hand, as a skilled car damage repairer, you go to work in noisy

Remove Rust From a Motorcycle Gas Tank

What you’ll need:

  • Acetone
  • Distilled water (it’s important that you only use distilled water)
  • Two stroke oil
  • A length of chain 4 to 6 feet long
  • Rags
  • Something to plug the fuel outlet (I used a small piece of hose a small rag and a piece of black tape)

IMPORTANT NOTE: ACETONE AND RUBBER DO NOT MIX! If you use rubber to seal the fuel output replace it every time you drain the acetone mix as the acetone will eat away at it.

At this point I’m going to assume that you have the gas tank off the bike and that it’s empty. Here is a step by step.

  1. Plug the fuel output and make sure it is sealed
  2. Fill the tank about ½ full of acetone and let it sit turning occasionally
  3. Wait overnight
  4. Shake the tank and empty the acetone/rust mixture into a bucket
  5. Fill the tank ½ way again with acetone and this time drop the chain in
  6. Shake the tank often and vigorously. The chain will knock remaining rust off
  7. Empty the acetone/rust mixture into the bucket
  8. Fill the tank up with distilled water and empty it out. Do this until only fairly clean water comes out and no rust can be

Info of Car Ding Repair

We see a trend today that more and more vehicle manufactures are using light gauge sheet metal in the construction of vehicles. In fact, it is not difficult to dent many new cars by simply leaning against them. The nice things about these dent/ding out, glue puller kits are that they give the do-it-your-selfers and car amateur enthusiasts a professional option to expensive dent removal services.

There are also different kinds of ding or dent repair kit and each of them offers a tool for specific damage. So you must know which repair kit you need for fixing your specific problem. This is no big deal however, because the only thing you have to do is to tell the sales person in the auto part or accessory store what you’ll need to do and he or she will find the dent fix kit for your needs. To cover yourself completely, you can buy several of them, thus having a tool for any ding or dent problem your car might incur. If you purchase three different ding or dent fix kits, you’ll have what you need for all types of dent repair.

How to use these kits?

Auto Electrical Repair

An auto battery is built up of six cells, each containing stacked positive and negative lead plates. These are divided and separated by insulators and immersed in an electrolyte, a liquid blend of sulfuric acid and water. However, some batteries, use a gel instead of the electrolyte. This is considered to be safer and because you do not have to refill it with electrolyte, it has been labelled “maintenance-free”. Each cell generates or more correctly put, stores 2.1 volts for a total of 12.6 volts.

Between the electrolyte and the lead plates, a chemical reaction is created. This produces dangerous, explosive gases that vent through the battery cover vents. Because of this, caution should be taken when you charge or jump start a low battery. The same caution should also be taken every time you are working under the hood of your vehicle. It is important to provide as good ventilation as possible in the battery, so always keep it clean. All batteries, even those using gel instead of electrolyte lose charging capacity as the time passes. The reason for this is that the chemical breakdown of the connections inevitably takes place leading to the deterioration of

About Oxygen Sensor Solutions

As a backgrounder, your oxygen sensor works like this: placed inside of your exhaust pipe, the oxygen sensor detects the ratio of air and gasoline your engine is fed. If the mixture is too rich or too lean than the oxygen sensor adjusts the amount of fuel entering your engine accordingly. The wrong mix of gasoline and oxygen can increase pollutants that exit your vehicle – thereby harming the environment — as well as potentially causing your catalytic converter to fail or even damage your engine. So, a properly working oxygen sensor is a must for any vehicle.

There are some clear signs that your oxygen sensor is no longer functioning. They can include:

–A rotten egg odor emitting from the exhaust.

–A reduction in fuel economy.

–Your catalytic converter fails unexpectedly.

–Exhaust emissions reach undesirable levels.

–Your engine surges or hesitates.

You can diagnose the problem yourself if you have access to the right tools including a digital voltmeter, an oxygen sensor socket, and a propane enrichment device. These specific tools, along with a proper Haynes or Chilton manual by your side, should be all that you need to determine

Apply Graphics and Decals on Bike

Bikes look ordinary. Others might do it to hide any dent or scratches from their automobile. So, if you too are looking for similar solutions or graphic installations then read this quick, professional guide on how you can apply and install the graphic kits on your bike:

Before you start

Inspect whether the plastic of the graphic kit you purchased. It looks defective, scuffed or scratched then you should get it replaced. Before you apply the graphics to your bike, you need to make sure that the bought plastic is in good condition.

For installation you will need:

• – adhesive paper tape;
• – paper knife / scissors;
• – hair dryer or heat gun;
• – degreasing agent or alcohol-water mixture;
• – squeegee (optional);

Now wash your hands as clean hands will help you prepare surface better and also keep the application area cleaners. If your hands have any dirt or oil over them then your graphics are likely to loose their stickiness.

Now you need to prepare the surface. If your bike has some pre-installed graphics or tattoos then remove it completely. You can use a hair dryer

Scooter V-Belt

DISCLAIMER: Maintenance, disassembly and repair of your scooter should only be performed by people with sufficient mechanical skill or experience so that no unsafe repair or modifications are made.

Before you begin a scooter v-belt replacement, make sure you have ordered a new belt that is the correct size for your scooter. Also, a word to the wise, a cheap belt will cost you more down the road. It is recommended to buy either a brand name or premium belt such as a Gates Powerlink or Kevlar Belt. They will last longer than a cheaper standard belt.

Let’s begin! First you will need to remove the CVT cover from the engine to expose the drive train of your scooter. The cover is held in place by a handful of bolts. Once the bolts have been removed, you may need to give a gentle tap on the CVT cover with a soft rubber mallet. Always use a rubber mallet to avoid marring or flattening the cover. A gentle tap usually will help “pop” the CVT cover free from the engine.

Once the CVT cover is off, inspect the inside of the CVT. Usually the belt will

Checklist For A Motorcycling Trip

Let’s run through a checklist that you must bear in mind before hitting the road for that much longed for road trip with your friends.

A drawback you are likely to have to put up with is that a motorbike is unlikely to offer you the same storage capacity as in line with a car. A conventional motorbike would let you carry a nice rucksack over your shoulders and a saddle bag for some additional storage.

Now you are sure to find some chic options for the saddle bags. A hard saddle bag is sure to look suave and stylish, as it shines in the sun. But suede is equally charming and impressive.

Another very common type of storage accessory for your bike is tank bags. Tanks bags may not be as common as saddle bags, but these are placed directly over the top of fuel tanks.

A tank bag may even have a glassy window which displays maps.

If it is weather protection which forms a constraint, harder bags are the right option to go for. But these need more time for installation.

If you require even more storage space, you
