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?

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