How to get motorcycle repair advice online


The qualified Experts on JustAnswer regularly respond to motorcycle questions like:


  • If I go over 34mph on my 2004 TRX350 FE, it starts blinking a 5 Error code and I have to shut the motorcycle off. Do you think all I have to do is clear the code?
  • I am putting a tachometer on my 2000 Fatboy, and I can’t work out which wire is positive and negative on coil. Can you help?
  • How do I check the clutch plates on a 2008 Ural?
  • I just warmed up my Can Am for the first time this winter and it heated up extremely high, why?
  • I am buying a ‘98 Suzuki Intruder 800 that hasn't been ridden in over a year. What can I do to get it started just to make sure it runs?

To give you the best advice, the motorcycle Expert will need some information. You should be ready to answer questions such as:


  • Have any trouble codes been triggered?
  • What is the model of your motorcycle?
  • Are you fixing your bike yourself?
  • What have you tried so far?

With this information, you'll be ready to have a constructive session with the Expert.
