How do you move a motorcycle without keys My friends mom wants his bike out of the garage while he's off at college and he can't remember where the keys are we are only moving it a couple of blocks?

You should have a motorcyclist do it. Motorcycles are heavy! Keeping it upright is a challenge for the uninitiated - if even a mid-size motorcycle tips halfway then it's tipping all the way and it can hurt you if you try to stop it from falling. A big bike, forget it. Rather than risk dropping the bike, just have an experienced cyclist do it. A six-pack of beer should solve this problem easily. If you decide to do it without a biker's help, remember: keep it _very_ vertical and have someone flanking on either side of the bike so you never find yourself without enough leverage to keep it upright. And when it falls, remember: I told you so.

If the back wheel isn't rolling, put it in neutral. (half-a-click up from the bottom on the shift lever at the driver's left foot.) Or, pull the clutch. (left hand.)

If the steering isn't locked, I'd just roll it right down the street. Get some momentum to get up the driveway at the other end.

If the steering is locked, you've got bigger problems. You will need to put the front end on a dolly, or load the whole bike into a pickup, or something like that. Have a biker figure it out based on what you have to work with.

Why are BMW air-cooled engines called boxers?

The answer from Timberwoof's Motorcycle FAQ: "The pistons move in and out at the same time, like boxers' fists." Subarus and old VWs are also considered boxers due to their opposing cylinder layout.

Texas Teens’ Beware of Summer Job Scams By Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott With the school year winding down, thousands of Texas teenagers will start looking for summer jobs. Teens can gain valuable skills and build a solid work ethic from part-time or seasonal employment. Whether saving for college, helping with the family budget, or simply earning some extra spending money, summer jobs provide valuable experience to teen Texans. When considering a summer job, parents and teens alike should be cautious of employment scams. If an offer sounds “too good to be true,” it usually is. Some prospective employers target teens for work that involves long hours and minimal pay or benefits. For example, some traveling sales crews recruit teens to sell magazines or other products door-to-door, in parking lots or local strip malls. While many of these are legitimate businesses, some organizations falsely claim to be charities, inviting teens to work for a social cause, like the environment or a scholarship drive. Crew bosses attract teens with fliers promising a fun job, travel, new friends, parties, prizes, and above all: money. The reality of a traveling sales crew is usually much different. Teens often work at night with no adult supervision, travel in cramped passenger vans and peddle magazine subscriptions in un-familiar neighborhoods across the country. Despite 16-hour days and no benefits, the money teens earn from subscription sales is often siphoned off by crew leaders for meals, lodging, and other expenses. Teens who join traveling sales crews are often employed as “independent contractors,” which allows crew bosses to escape most labor regulations and other protections. As a result, these young workers can be held liable for neglecting to charge sales tax, making false claims about a product or operating without a permit. Teens should also be wary of classified ads looking for “mystery shoppers.” This scheme has cost un-suspecting job hunters thousands of dollars. After responding to the ad, job seekers receive a cashier’s check and a letter of congratulations instructing the job seeker to send the money to an address out of the country. The checks turn out to be bogus, and victims have difficulty recouping their losses. Internet job offers should also be approached with caution, particularly if they are unsolicited offers from unknown senders. With the advent of social networking sites, millions of teens are online every day. Just as an online predator can pose as a 14-year-old child, a scam artist posing as an employment recruiter or potential employer can exploit online teens. Online scammers pitch attractive employment opportunities that usu-ally contain some variation of the same hook: the job seeker must first either pay in advance for out-of-pocket expenses or provide sensitive personal information like bank account numbers or social security numbers. Requirements like these should send up a red flag to any job hunter that this may be a job scam. Note, however, that federal law requires employers to collect employees’ social security numbers, so even reputable companies will require that information from their employees. Thousands of summer jobs will be available to Texas teens in the coming weeks, and most of those will be legitimate work opportunities. Teens should beware, however, of any offers that include high-pressure sales pitches, advance fees or offers from unfamiliar companies or organizations. Offers that sound “too good to be true” usually are! POINTS TO REMEMBER SUMMER JOB TIPS • Be wary of unsolicited job offers that arrive through E-mail. • Verify the identifying information of the company with which you are applying, including telephone numbers, fax numbers, and main address. • Do not trust offers from outside the area, especially overseas. • Never trust a company or individual that requires you to pay fees up-front to find work. • Be wary of requests for sensitive personal information.

How to convert a 1977 BMW R100 7 shaft driven to use an electric motor and chain drive?

Why get rid of the excellent BMW shaft drive and use a chain? You should sell this classic bike (even if it doesn't run) and get a bike with the engine removed (called a "rolling chassis") at a junkyard. The price of that BMW will likely finance your project.

What heat range in an NGK plug is required for a 1979 Yamaha XS750 Special?

The temperature of the spark plug's firing end must be kept low enough to prevent pre-ignition, but high enough to prevent fouling. This is called "Thermal Performance", and is determined by the heat range selected. The heat range has nothing to do with the amount of voltage going through the plug. Also plugs remove heat from the combustion chamber not add it.
1977-83 Yamahas used the NGK B-8ES or BP7ES gapped at about 0.6 - 0.7 millimetres or 0.024 - 0.028 inches .So your heat range equals a 7 or 8 eaqual a "colder" or cooler plug.
A cold spark plug has a shorter insulator nose and absorbs more combustion chamber heat. This heat travels a shorter distance, and allows the plug to operate at a lower internal temperature. A colder heat range is necessary when the engine is modified for performance, subjected to heavy loads, or is run at a high rpm for a significant period of time. Colder spark plugs remove heat quicker, reducing the chance of pre-ignition/detonation.

Modeling

Where can you find modeling jobs for a 12 year old?

The best way to find modeling jobs for a 12-year-old is by finding a legitimate modeling agency that has a teen division. It is the agent's job to find your child paying modeling jobs. You can also freelance and act as your child's modeling agent by finding them work on your own but this is not recommended if you don't have experience in the industry and especially if you're dealing with a teen. Having an agency behind you is the best way. Simply look up modeling agencies within a 2 hour's drive from where you live and visit their website to see how you can submit your child's photos and information.

Why does the BMW K1200LT smoke on start up?

all of the BMW "k" engines will smoke on startup from time to time. It's due to the lay down engine configuration. The cylinders are parallel to the ground and arranged front to rear. So, the cylinder head runs fore and aft down the left side of the bike. When parked on the side stand or kick stand, a small amount of oil can push past the rings/valve seals and enter the combustion chamber. When the engine starts, this small amount of oil burns and smokes pretty bad for a few minutes. It may do it once a year or once a week. There is no pattern. The way to eliminate it is to use the center stand only. The k engine has done this since released in 1983. We say, the possibility of the engine doing this is relative to the number of people standing around your bike.

Why would a 2001 BMW R850R cut out after running for approximately five minutes?

Check for clogged fuel filter, or fuel pump electrical connections. Sounds like something is getting hot. You might want to Take it to BMW for diagnostic. I just dealt with a similar problem on a 1200. BMW said it was the TPS. Sounds from my limited knowledge that you might have a bad coil. Hope this helps.
