Nine times out of ten it is the simplest solution that will have you back up and running and on the road again. And these Simple Solutions you can do yourself. Below is a list of simple possible solutions to what may be troubling your motorcycle:
- item do you have gas? I know this may seem like a simple simple thing however, if you have a carburetor, or an older bike that does not have a gas gauge, and your sputtering and stalling they just need to fill up the tank.
2 when was the last time you adjusted the clutch cable? If you can't remember, and your bike clutch is slipping or sticking, then maybe you should just adjust the cable at both the handlebars and the engine.
- Have you checked the oil lately? Remember especially if you are a writer who does not ride on a daily basis that oil may just need to be changed.
