The frame is twisted (most likely crash damage or dropped/knocked over)

I had the same problem with mine last year. I put a new tire on it and had it balanced. The vibration went away. I would at least have your tire balanced.

SOURCE: Shake from left to right at high speeds.

Check for steering head bearing problems. But most likely you have a cruiser that is not supposed to be driven at high speeds and this is normal. Sport bikes use a steering dampner to solve that problem.

Lift the bike off the ground (front end), turn steering side to side, should be smooth all the way (not notchy), check your tyres both front and rear, uneven wear, warped rim, should spin freely and true (wheel bearings) than check for fluids on your fork legs, your front fork seals may be leaking or the oil may be due for a change!!

The only thing I can think of is if it is bent, to try straightening the bend. Be very careful as the frame is hollow and too much pressure will cause it to collapse. Do not try to use a hammer as this will collapse the frame. If you do not have the strength to bend the frame, ask someone you know to help you.

Best of luck Jamie!

SOURCE: motorcycle revs up when handle bars are turned

What kind of motorcycle is it? does it use 2 cables? if so, the idle cable is probably too tight. there should be an 1/8 in free play when bars are straight. the throttle should snap back after u turn it wide open and let go in all positions.

Lever on left side of 2006 FLHTCUI


Hi Anonymous, the only levers I can think of on the left side of the bike are the clutch lever in front of the left handle bar grip, the toe shifter for up shifting or down shifting located just above the drivers left foot board in the front, and the heel shifter for upshifting only located in the rear. Good luck

Starting problem when I move cable on lt side connected to start button bike starts


This is most likely caused by a loose connection behind the start button module on the handle bars. There should be 2 screws on the back of this module. Remove said screws and it should split apart in two pieces. You can then inspect the wiring to see if there is a loose connection.

Hi i would like to know how to add water for the honda goldwing 1500 gl i want to know what to remove to find the place were to add water


Sit on the bike and turn the handle bars to the right. Look on the left hand side where the left handle bar was and you will see a rubber cap. Remove the left plastic cover panel around it and remove the rubber cap. It has hash marks to measure by. Ad 50/50 antifreeze till you see it half way up the hash marks. Be sure the rubber cap snaps back on tightly all the way around.If you ever need access to the radiator cap it is on the right side under that plactic cover. But you can add coolant on the left side. This is the upper level resivoir.

First time driving a 1967 Triumph motorcycle coming up. Would like advice on where stuff is like clutch, brake, shifter and how to shift -- where the gears are. Thanks. Art asanfelici@verizon.net


Hi Art! First of all, congratulations on your 1967 Triumph... that's a beauty!!!

Basic things to know before riding a bike is it's parts.

Clutch is the lever you press on the left side of the handle bar.

Front disc brake is the lever on the right side of the handle bar.

Shifter is the one you're stepping on when shifting gears and is located on the left side of the engine if you're on it.

Now, you must first know if the gear is on Neutral by pushing the bike before starting the bike. If it's hard to push then the shifter is not in neutral. Press the shifter by your left foot until you are able to push the bike with ease.

Hop on the bike and start the engine. Most bikes have ignition starters but if your bike doesn't have one, then you have to turn keys to on position and use the kick starter. Rev the engine by pressing the throttle grip on the right side of the handle bar.

Engine is running and in idle position. Press the Clutch lever (left hand) and press the shifter once (left foot) DO NOT RELEASE THE CLUTCH YET!!!

Slowly press the throttle with your right hand until you hear or feel the engine purr...

Slowly release the clutch (left hand) until you fell the bike move forward.

If I am not mistaken, shifting the gears of the triumph is 1-down and 4 up...

Every time you shift gears, you need to press the clutch to release the gears.

Hope you'll have fun!!!

Ride safe my friend!!!

Don't forget your riding gears!!!

Sounds a lot like cable stretch. Have a local bike shop replace all the cables and do a derailleur adjustment. Costs is usually under $40 complete.

Handle over the big wheels


Hi,

To move the handle bar (either for folding or to change into the off-road mode) push the small white button in (located on the inside of the handle bar) and pull both triggers toward you (also located on the inside of the handle bar - on either side) This will enable the handle bar to move.

I hope this helps.
