Hi, Tom the best way to jump-start your bike is to use a jumper battery and cables, if available, before trying to push start:
1. Your battery connections must be clean and tight.
2. Jumper cables should have 8 or 6 gauge wire.
3. Only use a known good fully charged jumper battery.
4. When jumping from an automobile the engine "MUST" be off.
5. Connect the positive cable first.
6. Let the bike battery charge for 1 minute before starting.
7. Once the bike has started, remove the negative cable first.
8. If no battery is available you can try to push start.
9. Always look for a downhill slope if available.
10. Shift into 2nd gear clutch in and have someone push you then stand up on the footpegs and slam your buttocks into the seat exactly at the same time let the clutch lever out.

Hi, Terry external oil deposits fall into 3 categories:
1. WEEPAGE is the oil that is sweated pass gaskets, seals, o-rings, and crankcase seams, it's covered by dry dust and is normal for older engines with lots of miles, no repair is necessary.
2. SEEPAGE is the same as weepage except the deposit is wet and confines itself to a specific area, the repair is optional depending on the owner's cleanliness criteria, the deposit location and the weight of his bag of "DRACHMA"
3. LEAKAGE is the same as seepage except it is enough to drop to the ground leaving a spot. Repair as necessary.
To find the source of your oil leak, start at the point where you see oil and trace its path going up and forward, blowing baby powder from the palm of your hand will help in those difficult to see areas if there is too much oil present then buy a spray can of engine degreaser apply it to the affected area then rinse off with a pressure wand or garden hose, use compressed air to blow off excess water or just let it drip dry, take your bike for a 15 minute ride and check for the leak.

Possible that the starter pinion gear has come off or the pinion itself is not throwing out to engage on the ring gear. You may have to take the starter out to check and confirm. The solenoid which sits above the starter motor operates the pinion. It throws out the pinion shaft to engage the gear and the starter motor itself, spins it. Once the engine has started, the solenoid retracts the shaft and gear back and away from the ring gear.

Hi Anonymous, if you have a carbuerator the petcock/fuel valve is located on bottom rear of the left side of the fuel tank. With the long end of the lever pointing straight back the fuel valve is in the off position and no fuel will flow to the carbuerator, with it pointing straight down the valve allows fuel flow from the gas tank to the carbuerator, with it pointing straight forward it is in reserve mode and you have roughly 1/2 to 1 gallon of fuel left in the gas tank. If you are fuel injected the is a low fuel warning light either on the dash or speedometer. If you have a fuel gauge refuel before it hits empty just like your car. Good luck and have nice day.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at https://www.6ya.com/expert/gregg_c0ec1df182c7330e
