    Best answer: When splitting lanes, motorcyclists get dangerously close to other vehicles, making collisions much more likely. ... If this happens on a busy highway, the risk of a multi vehicle collision is quite high.

    Do i feel they should make it legal?
    Im am currently opposed to it. I do not feel it should be legal. I feel that lane splitting it extremely dangerous. I mean you can watch them all over youtube where the vehicles are slowly moving along and motorcycles zipping by in between cars at a high rate of speed. Which makes it much more dangerous. I currently believe that the motor vehicle in that lane should have that lane from line to line right to left for the use if that vehicle.

    When they do cause a accident or because the speeds they were traveling it makes it difficult for them to literally come out of nowhere when vehicles changes lanes. The accidents will just add to the already contested roads and have very little to no effect of congestion control.

    However i would be in favor for it if the traffic was either at a stand still or moving below 20-30mph I feel no issue with it. But no mater theres going to be "those" drivers that think they can zip down in-between lanes going 50 plus MPH.

  • Moped charges battery at low voltage?

    I bought a moped on craigs list for 500, and the voltage on it is really low, it goes from 12 volts to maybe 11. The stator is charging but i cant figure it out. I changed stator and rectifier still same voltage. Is it possible I was scammed? Would a bad clutch and variator do that?

  • Can 2stroke cdi or ignition coil work on 4stroke engine or vice versa,is there any difference between 50cc,125cc,250cc cdi or ignition coil?

    Best answer: Maybe. depends on ACTUAL coils for ACTUAL motorcycles. Suzuki part number for older 2 stroke coil is same as on some later 4 strokes, some 2 stroke coils for the alternator fired plugs completely different from later 4 strokes.

    Best answer: Maybe. depends on ACTUAL coils for ACTUAL motorcycles. Suzuki part number for older 2 stroke coil is same as on some later 4 strokes, some 2 stroke coils for the alternator fired plugs completely different from later 4 strokes. CDI- Capacitor Discharge Ignitions have large condensor/capacitor wired with coil - collapsing field starts with 12 volts or some times 6 volts in 'plain' points systems while the CDI often has a 400 volt field that will collapse quicker, give hot spark with wider gap wich was often desirable with 2 strokes firing oily fuel mix. Now newer 4 strokes need the same kind of wide gap quick spark for lean fuel mixes required by law and pickup sensor timing spark from CDI may use same basic units just because they are on shelf and available reasonable cost. Depends if CDI has some timing controls in unit. Magnapulse coils for many small engine 4 strokes same part number as earlier 2 stroke units- Tecumseh and OMC, Yamaha, Honda utility engines use same NEC or Nippondenso part numbers. Other engines have different units, different timing pickups- some use LEDs instead of Magnet pickups. Some units have double or triple pickups- a 'Start' retarded timing , idle/slow speed advance and a full throttle timing- varying scooters, some small cycles with simplest of ignition and chargeing.

    Best answer: Military and students the most common 'non resident' or special residents when it comes to vehicles-- and most states have grace periods or registration, license exceptions noted, some procedures for 'temporary residents' to register-- state collects license fees so they are usually accomidating. Your 'home state' drivers license should have motorcycle endorsement, likely you'll have plates and insurance with Hawaii address so legal to ride as student address. .

    Best answer: I want to help you, not to laugh at you.
    "Wanna" is not a word. "Want to" is acceptable.
    "I" means you are a person, "i" is a math term, imaginary.
    There is no such as a "liscence," hence you cannot have one.
    You can get a "licence" if you are a country that uses Proper English.
    You can get a "license" is you are in the United States.
    Telling us you have an "enduro" is useless.
    Assuming you have a motorcycle, you will need to tell others what it is, if it is street legal.

    If you want to ride off-pavement, you do not need any license.
    If you want to ride the streets, your motorcycle needs a motorcycle license registration and license plate.
    At age 14, in Alabama you can get a driver license for a "motor-driven cycle."
    A "motor-driven cycle" has no more than 5bhp, no more than 150cc displacement, weighing no more than 200 pounds.
