had to remove radiator, need to how to refill

vt500 missing at looses some acceleration or like it is missing. Gets when deacelerating. any help be great Comments: Mar 14, 2010 Its got a new air filter on. Had the petcock off. the strainer and all seems fine

Having ridden it again The problem is when its at about above that or below the responds perfectly to the throttle. this is a carb/feul problem.

Why it only happen at 4000rpm!

on deceleration is typically caused by that are out of sync. Having the synchronized should improve or this.

On Valve Adjustments: I I need some valve on my 86 VT500. When I have it there is an audible (though if you put your ear low to the engine) chatter/chik-chik-chik It was suggested by a mechanic who listened to it this was the valves. They 2-300 to adjust them. My is two-fold.

First off, how can I be it is the valves? I did not own the bike for the first miles so do not have an idea valves were ever or not. Could it be the cam chain, than the valves (which I is a much more severe and problem)? Second, what this job entail, were I to do it I’ve never done work, but have rebuilt the cooling system (excepting the pump), changed oil, brakes, and removed/installed wheels.

Might this job be within my How much disassembly is required on the in order to access the valves? I do the Clymer manual and a good set of tools. Any help is appreciated.

love to save on the job by doing it at and would like to learn how I just don’t want to get in my head and ruin anything.

On Valve Adjustments: I believe I some valve maintenance on my 86 When I have it running is an audible (though only if you put ear low to the engine) chatter/chik-chik-chik noise. It was by a mechanic who listened to it that was the valves. They wanted to adjust them.

My question is two-fold. First how can I be sure it is the valves? I did not own the bike for the 14,000 miles so do not have an whether valves were adjusted or not. Could it be the cam rather than the valves I assume is a much more and pricey problem)?

Second, would this job entail, I to do it myself? I’ve never engine work, but have the entire cooling system the water pump), changed fixed brakes, and removed/installed Might this job be within my How much disassembly is required on the in order to access the valves? I do the Clymer manual and a good set of tools.

Any help is appreciated. love to save on the job by doing it at and would like to learn how I just don’t want to get in my head and ruin anything.

Bleeding Air from Cooling I believe I have some air in the system. What is the proper/best for bleeding air from the system? so much for the help!

Bizarre from Cylinders/Crankcase I’m by a very peculiar noise from my ’86 VT500. now, after riding 30 miles or so, I return home and put the on the centerstand. About 6 min after the has been shutoff I have a sound coming from the around where the crankcase and casing meets. Strange as it is, the can only be described as a drawn out

It is somewhat similar to a rubber being vibrated, but closer to the of a low, bouncy ball fart. I’m not kidding of like: brwwooooowww). The noise about 2 seconds each and occurs 5 or 6 times in a row, by about 2-5 sec of quiet.

So, as the bike is I cannot imagine any process is going on, aside from the dispersion that occurs I thought maybe the noise, fart-like, could be escaping air somewhere. I am unable to further the noise, it seems to emanate that general area.

Aside from a very chatter (likely the valves adjusting?) the bike runs (I just repaired the cooling but it seems fine now and has no leaks). certainly puzzled. Any thoughts?

so much.

Concerning gear I have an 86 VT500. I bought it 14000 miles on it and have about 600 miles of my own since. from neutral into (when prepping to move) it is about 50% of the time. When it is not it shifts with an audible

I find that it happens when I am not moving. If I downshift first as I am rolling to a stop it is as smooth as the other gears other gear shifts are I had one instance of stuck gear I was at a stop, in 3rd with the clutch in. I went to shift down first and the bike did not want to

I rolled it back and forth and was to eventually click it down the gears (this shift was not once I got it). Any ideas on this is the sign of a bigger or just an old clutch? Thanks for any

Testing Water Pump I a 86 VT500. I need a way to test the pump reliably, rather just making assumptions ok based on other factors. The is new, the fan works, and the radiator is (not at 100%, maybe I want to check the water because the bike does to be warmer than expected, the cold air temps here. I do not know what range the gauge should be at under circumstances.

It tends to sit in the mid to upper mid of the white band. The bike has 14k on it, but I do not how it was treated before I bought it.

There isn’t any method for the water pump on your VT500. It is driven mechanically inside the engine, so it is either to work, or not work at all.

The you can do is remove as much of the hard deposits from the inside of the as you can — and carefully straighten any radiator cooling fins.
