    Hello riders, yesterday I went for a ride and got into some trouble with my baby:frown all of a sudden got the red light come on and I see the temp went up to 230 and was going up super fast, obviously I stopped immediately to see what the problem was and realized that the bike is leaking oil...

    Hey I took my bike out for the first ride this summer in Minnesota the other day. When I got back, I noticed this white fluid leaking out of a hose on the left side of my bike. Sorry I'm not too mechanical. Can anyone tell me what this is and how easy/difficult it's going to be to fix? Thanks...

    Hello, Im new to the bigger bikes, used to ride an Aprilia RS125 as my first bike. And now I recently bought an 02/07 ZX600P with 11k (km). (My avatar is actually the picture of the bike.) I was told that the fault was amongst the 636 engine bikes of the year 2007. I test drove it before I...

    Okay so yesterday I noticed that there looked like there was brake fluid on my left brake caliper. The fluid isn't coming from the hoses, and i bled the brakes & tightened up the bolts as well. I rode the bike for about half an hour last night, and this morning I noticed the fluid was there...

    After putting in the SpeedoDRD yesterday I thought everything went smoothly. I knew I was going to have to go under the tank, so it was nearly empty. After putting everything back together I filled the tank up and took a spin on the freeway. PERFECT! Everything was working as it should, though...

    When I start my bike it will only rev to 12k rpm. Then after I ride for a few minutes it will only go to 10k then 8k. Finally it will stay at a max rev of 6k or 7k and I am stuck on the interstate barely going 65mph. If I turn it off and start it again it will go right back to 12k, but then do...

    This week my radiator got a hole in it and leaked coolant every time I rode it causing it to run hot. Called this salvage yard which actually had a used radiator. Told them I'd be coming to buy it the following day. Get there the next day - 1 hour from my house - to hear that they sold it to...

    Hey all. I know that a number of you have had these gaskets leak and replaced under Kawasaki's service bulletin. I got a little more information from the guys at my local shop today because I went in for a new one. Since my bike is torn down for some winter love, I just got the parts, but labor...
