    Motorbike troubles...

    I got a Derbi Senda r 100 in the garage its been in there since i passed my driving test so about 5 years now...... thinking about getting it running again and using it for work but i am useless when it comes to motorbikes,

    anyone on here know anything?

    basically if anyone is local could the come and take a look and see if they can do anything to get it back on the road obviously you will be paid for the work..... its having trouble starting and is really spluttery when reving, brake pads have been changed but brakes are still useless and dont stop the bike at all.

    cheers for any help

    sounds like you need to strip off the carb mate.
    just soak it in carb cleaner for a few hours then dry off.
    simply put it back on let the fuel run in and she should run
    would also check your plug as if not running right they have a tendancy to get coked up.
    hope this is of help to you and good luck.

    While the carbs out also take out the bottom of it and remove the jet blow it out incase any bits of crap have managed to get into it... just remember what went where etc lol.

    Like said new plug will do the bike wonders will appreciate it.

    Your brakes ... new pads sometimes need wearing in take it for a little ride somewhere near and use the brakes as much as possible if they are still pretty rubbish after that , try bleeding them. If you have no luck with that maybe if its been stood a while the brake pistons maybe sticking and could do with a lube. Dismantle caliper (also remembering how it went , not hard though) , take pads out and use some Wd40 or similair to lube up the pistons and push them back in (little bit of wood and mole grips is usually good for this).

    If its been stood that long as well id change the oil in the gearbox, drain plug will be somewhere underneath obviously, better once you have the bike running so you can warm it up then drop the oil , then use new stuff or even flush it with something if you want.
    Hope this helps

    5 year old petrol will be well past it mate, after you have drained and disposed of it properly, clean out the carb as already advised, flush out the tank and pipes, then put some new petrol in. I would also recommend a new spark plug, double check that the timing is correct too.
    The same thing goes for the brakes, the brake fluid needs replaced as it has a life limit of two years, so, change the fluid and bleed the brakes.
    The info about doing an oil change is also a good idea as oil also has a life time limit but unlike the brake fluid its only for one year.
    Hope this helps!
