Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking check for spark leakage in the dark
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
7. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
8. Faulty CKP or CMP, MAP, ETS, ATS, TPS, O2 sensor.
9. Dirty air filter.
10. Intake air leak.
11. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system.
12. Carburetor contaminated, sticky float, plugged jets.
13. Carburetor has oil in the bowl due to excessive oil in pre-mix.
14. Carburetor vacuum diaphragm torn, cracked, not seated or installed improperly.
15. Multiple carburetors out of sync.
16. Fuel filter clogged.
17. Old or contaminated fuel.
18. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carb vent line closed off.
19. Gas cap diaphragm valve faulty.
20. Vacuum line from intake manifold to fuel valve is broken, cracked, pinched, or missing.
21. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
22. Incorrect valve timing.
23. Valve springs floating, weak, or broken.
24. Damaged intake or exhaust valve.
25. Incompatible performance parts.
26. The control module may be in "LIMP" mode
27. Check for engine trouble codes.

Hi Des, Im am Irish too, howya doin? The oil you want is SAE 10W-20. and 445ml if you are changing the oil. It can be more accurately checked with the fork removed and fully compressed and the spring removed, the oil will be 120mm from the top ot the stanchion.
The manual will give you more info on this and any other future problems so here is a link to it. Good luck to ya, and please rate me if I've helped you. Thanks

Hi can you just try something for me leave the fuel filler cap off and then start the bike and see if it will run properly if it does then this means your breather is blocked now this could be the cap itself or you may have seperate breather but well discuss more when we narrow it down a bit, if it makes no difference then the chances are you have a blocked fuel filter.

let me know what happens ok

New alternator new battery and my break light and battery light is still on why is that?


Check charging system output. If it is correct then their is something wrong with the gauge light. If the battery is not going dead, then that is most likely. Brake light has nothing to do with the problem.

I just bought an 02 mean streak vn1500 and the gauges aren't working!..... Any ideas?


What gauges aren't working?
Rpm's, km/h, turn indicators, etc? Or just some of them?
The gauges didn't worked at all since you bought it?
Check the fuses, the sockets from wires.

My check engine light blinks for my mercury cougar at idle at every stop light, stop sign, everything as soon as i stop or put it in park it starts blinking whats wrong?


Usually when your check engine like is blinking it means you have a miss fire. You can go to Auto Zone and have them pull the codes and it will tell you what cylinder is misfiring. ( if you want to only fix that one miss).

My 2003 Ford Expedition runs rough at idle and the service light started blinking.


it sounds like you need to tune up your vehicle. whenever the service light blinks it usually means you have a miss fire. You can take it to auto Zone to retrieve the code. The code should tell you what cylinder is miss firing.Hope this helps. Please leave comment.
