Re: If it sounds like the valves are too loose...

Just a thought, but could it possibly be the fuel pump lever rattling against the end of the camshaft?

forum hacked?

Am I supposed to be using some kind of translation software? This is the first time I ever saw a language other than English on here.

Re: Tire recommendations

I have 3000 miles on my Shinko tourmasters on my 79 and they still look brand new. I love the way they stick and would buy them again without a second thought.

Re: please help me

If the lights don't go off when the starter button is pushed, it is not functioning properly or there is no power getting to the switch.

Re: please help me

It could also be the kill switch so make sure you clean it while you're in there.

Re: please help me

Sorry if this is late. Do your lights go off when you mash the starter switch? If not chances are it's in the switch and you need to start there. There are threads Here that will help you take it apart and clean it.
