Re: 1990 Elite LX 50 (SA50) grinding sound

Greetings: Vise Grips could conceivably damage the drive face. Pick up THIS. You can get it much cheaper if you shop. The pins lock the clutch too. Excellent tool for clutch, drive pulley, flywheel, etc. I've had one for years. One thing about buying tools...You usually forget how much you pay for ...

You shouldn't need locktite if you torque the nut down to 30 ft/lbs.

Re: Where to find replacement steering bearings

I use Kenda 2.50x10 tires from J&PCycles. They're the cheapest I can find. Less than $20 each tax included and shipping is free if you order more than $39. They have a lot of good stuff! Those bearings can get lost pretty easy. If you lose any, I can send you some. 26 in the bottom race and 26 in th...

Re: Grinding Noise at 30 Km/h

Take off the transmission level check bolt (the 12mm bolt). Oil should come out. Check the condition of the oil, (dirty, water, small metal shavings,etc.) Could be a bad bearing in transmission. I just rebuilt one for about $12.

Re: 1986 Honda Spree HELP

WOW!! Just when I think I've seen everything that can go wrong with a Spree, this shows up. I have a good starter gear. What else do you need?

Re: Spree runs but stalls after a short ride

Sounds kind of like a petcock issue. If you are getting gas out of the vacuum side, it will need to be replaced. Could be bystarter not working. Try those. Good luck

Re: 87 Spree gets hot and stalls while riding.

While idling, pull the oil line off at intake manifold. The RPM's will increase. Put your finger on the fitting on the manifold and it will idle down. Check to see if oil is coming out of the oil line. Oil should come out of the oil line slowly. If no oil, you may have air in the oil lines or pump o...

Re: Spree NQ50 86 hard to start

Assuming that you have CLEANED the slow jet, main jet, emulsion tube, bystarter hole in carb bowl, etc.and you don't have any air leaks, it sounds like you may have a crank seal issue or maybe the reeds.

Re: 86 Spree drive belt

Go to auto parts store and borrow what you need. Ask for help if you have local friends or motorcycle shop. The splines on the end of the crankshaft are most critical. Bonesv is sooooo corect. If you reassemble and don't line up the front pulley with the splines....you'l be looking for a crankshaft.

Re: 86 Spree drive belt

Small oil leak is pretty normal when you remove the side cover on a Spree because the back two bolts (the 50mm and 55mm) help secure the transmission cover. A small amount of oil will leak from transmission and leave a couple of drops on the floor. Once you tighten the cover, the drips should stop.

Re: 85 honda spree lost spark

Check for continuity between the blue/yellow and green wire of the pulse coil. Should be 50-200 ohm. Make sure that all wire connections are good.

Re: 85 Spree Not Starting! HELP

Looks like Meatball pretty much covered it. Maybe check timing (CDI, woodruff key on crankshaft). Or crank seals? Sometimes the pulley side comes out for some reason.
