Hi. To fit a new wire harnes is a fairly straight forward job if you still have the old one fitted, the main difficulty is getting the route correct so if you place the new one alongside the old harness, disconnect te battery, do not rush the job work in one area at a time reconecting all the disconnected wires from the old harness with the new, this will ensure you have not left any wires disconnected, and when finnished reconnect the battery live first followed by the earth wire.

fouled spark plugs...intake manifold leak... you could have a vacuum line come off or isnt on all the way. bad batch of gas..weak coils, or poor compression. or the choke could not be operating properly. also running too heavy an oil could cause this problem, you should run 10w40 only.

i think you have air traped somewhere these things are a devil to bleed. you will have to use a power bleeder which is simply a small hand vac pump put on your bleed screw to **** fliuid and air out of the system. this the best way i know of and will save you a lot of grief

Bleed the master first, make sure that there is plenty of fluid going through there and all the air is out. Then, once the master is fully bled, the fluid will pull through the lines quickly. Just do one line at a time, and once you do them both and get good pressure you want to zip tie the lever to the bar overnight to make sure you get all the little bubbles out. Hope that helps.

We REALLY need more details to answer anything, but It sounds like you may be referring to tires. if so, they must be replaced, tubes also.

Haynes manuals are the best to learn your ride inside out,every nut,bolt and direction to go. Even if you have never done one. Yard tapes use it when they get stomped. So beat em to it you'd be surprised in how simple ,maybe a pain in your short hairs but theory is...you can add to something,but you can't take away from it to work.

If you follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid relay and/or look around your battery storage area you should see somewhere either as part of a small bank or actually on the starter solenoid relay itself - a fuse. Usually the same as most cars take - not the very small square fuses the newer vehicles use, but a normal square fuse. If you pull that out and check it - you may have just blown a fuse. - actually yours may be a little farther away. 7 & 9 are your main fuses. No light/no crank - you should definitely check those fuses. If that's no the issue just comment or reach out and I'll go further with you. All The Best, Justin Lee, 17 South Industries, LLC

Check if power is leaving solenoid to starter while cranking. If starter is getting power to it's power terminal but not turning over,see if you can turn engine over by hand. Check sprage clutch assy into engine also. On my bike there is a flat washer spacer that can away into engine if I am not careful,can jam in gearing.
