Ask a Question

Ask us your motorcycle repair advice question using the form below. Please include your machine's year, make and model as well as any customization of the bike {ie aftermarket exhaust system, air filter, etc}.

Why do we ask for your state and country?

Prevailing climate and altitude makes a big difference. For example: If you have your ATV tuned by a shop in the Catskill Mountains (1600-1900 feet above sea level) and it runs great! Then you take it home to the Jersey shore & suddenly it won't stay running. Don't blame the shop. They tuned it to perform well in the thinner, drier atmosphere of the mountains, not at sea level.

Also, some models may only be available in local markets or the same name may be used on different bikes in different countries. Listing your country will help us to give you the most accurate answer to your motorcycle repair advice question.
