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.

What happens if your four wheeler runs out of oil?

if your quad runs out of oil 1 of 2 things will happen. the crank bearings will over heat and shred apart and that will cause your piston not to rotate around the crank like its suppose to and it will beat up your cylinder walls pretty bad. the other thing is if the crank bearings don't go first the piston could get the cylinder walls hot and fuse itself into the cylinder. i had the tube that oil flows from the reservoir into the case break and it shredded my bearings. $700 worth of parts.

Does a 1993 Yamaha FZR 1000 need engine oil and transmission fluid separately....How much Transmission fluid do you put into it?

Generally, unit construction engines ( of which this is one) ,do not require a separate addition of oil into their transmissions. They share the oil with the engine and clutch. Therefore selection of a crankcase lubricant should meet JASO MA requirements so as to be compatible with clutch lining materials. Never use oil with any form of friction modifier's.

What is shift pattern on a Harley Davidson sportster?

Most stock Harleys will be 1 down; shifter all the way to the bottom, and then half up to neutral, then depending on the number of gears, 2-3-4-5 the rest are all up.

With a "heel-toe" shifter it would be 1 toe down then 2-3-4-5 heels down.

What would cause a motorcycle ignition condenser to constantly go bad?

If it repeatedly fails you have excessive heat, wrong spec condenser, its getting wet, the voltage is incorrect off the ignition (or magneto if you have one that primitive)

or you may have a bad plug wire or coil causing the spark to "back up" into the condenser. ( How it was described to me in the 1960s )

It could also just be wired on the wrong side of the coil or points.

Good Luck
