The right cylinder runs way colder than...

    New turn signals wont flash, just stay solid.

    Hi, so here's my problem, I recently installed new indicators on my 1980 XS400G, everything is hooked up properly and works, except for one huge problem, the indicators wont flash.

    So I just picked up my very first bike today for free from an older lady whose husband passed some time back. She said it had sat in the yard for a number of years since his passing. She had no idea where the key or title for it was, or even what model year it is. I found two identical 9 digit...

    runs and then dies + more

    Okay to start off I just want to let everyone know that I am brand spanking new to motorcycles but I am fairly mechanically savvy.
