Re: Jim Pomeroy's Pit Bike

Since no1 seems interested in it, I don't mind telling you all... I only paid $40 for it. I could sell the speedo for that much according to eBay prices. Pretty psyched on it so doubt I'll part it out though.

wait on that filter before you do anything else.
if you still cant get it started, get a compression gauge, very handy tool.

Re: Honda Spree vs SUV... help please

it doesnt matter if your headlight was on or not. all that matters is that you were in on-coming traffic on a thru-street. if anyone is pulling out into that traffic, they do NOT have right-of-way. if you sped up or were speeding to begin with, you could be in the wrong, however, if anyone pulls out...

Re: Blinker issue...

yes, the alternator is not enough to trip the flasher. i have the same problem on my aero.
if i rev the engine they blink. if i put on the brake and divert power, it stops blinking. if im at the light idling, they dont flash.
remedy: get a new battery or charge the one you've got.

edit... it doesnt increase top speed...ever.

Re: new to scooters. and got spree but wont start

the spree is very picky about its air intake. most report that after switching to an aftermarket filter, they go back to stock, honda knows what he's doing when he builds a bike.
