    Another thing comes to mind, one of our other members was having a similar problem. He cleaned his battery terminals and cables and tightened the bolts with a ratchet and socket and reported his problem solved. Easy to do and you never know, low voltage has been known to cause all kinds of...

    I have removed the petcock once and loosened the nut once to be able to spin the petcock around backwards to remove the diaphragm and check it for cracks (I did this in a Pilot Truck Stop in Arkansas in a pouring rain storm)!!! You Just have to adjust the jaws correctly and not let it slip as...

    At the speed you are reporting you may be running into the rev limiter and not running out of fuel.

    You can remove the petcock using a 430 Channel Lock pliers (They are Metric and SAE!!! šŸ¤« šŸ˜†). That nut is not very tight in fact of you over tighten it you could break it.

    Following the wiring diagram for your bike I see that the tail/brake and license plate are on that circuit using a black wire with a brown trace, but, I also see that the vehicle speed sensor is on it too. That circuit according to the diagram is fed by fuse "B" and also feeds the turn signal...

    Some bikes have a fuse in a small fuse holder inside the headlight housing (it's one of those pop top fuse holders and doesn't look like a fuse holder) I had one on my 2004 1300 s. Took me a while to trace it down, I thought it was some kind of mini relay, nope.

    First I would remove the cover on the tail light and remove the bulb, then I would do the same with the license plate bulb. Unplug the wires that go to this circuit under the right side chrome cover and inside that black rubber boot that protects the wire connectors from water and using an Ohm...

    When I was busting tires in my youth, the shop had a water troth that we would dip the tire in to find a leak, I haven't seen a troth in use in years but it was the most reliable way to find the leak. You could use a bathtub but if there is a Mrs. Aspire she might not take to kindly to...

    From the pictures of the front tire it looks like you have a "C" model so no tube or spokes to worry about. Take an empty spray bottle, add a squirt or two of dish washing soap (like Dawn or equivalent) and fill with water , or if you don't have any soap, windex full strength will work in a...
