Re: Note for noiseguy on how to fix spammers

Ah, you're saying we should also allow guest posting here? Having anon users is really opening the board up for a lot of randomness... we up for that?

Re: Note for noiseguy on how to fix spammers

I don't understand how spammers can figure out the Google one but can't figure out above... probably some automation thing. I'm range banning the offending countries, will look into this in next week or so. I've been slammed recently with work so I've not been active on board. Email me if we have an...

Think that'll be better than the current Google image version we're using now?

Fuel filters on scooters can cause a whole host of issues. There's one in the tank already and you're best just letting it do it's job.

Performance is usually a bit snappier, and they're a replacement for worn steel leaves.

Re: New 50cc scooters are now $575 in Florida

I spent several months flipping bikes in AR when I was between gigs. What I like about working on JP / EU bikes is that everything's high quality... materials, metals, fasteners. You can usually just clean things and get them going with no new parts required. China bikes... everything you touch brea...

Re: Does this look fishy to you?

that looks like an express carburetor also. I don't think sprees or elites had the oil injector going to the carb. it went to the manifold. that's a spree motor. you can tell by the cvt cover. 85 variated af05e was only year without kick starter. and it isn't smooth in the front. has a kick out to ...

Thanks MM. To add to that: Don't reply to spammers, and definitely don't quote them. Just click the exclamation mark and we'll be along to clean it up.

Re: New member from France with a 1986 Aero 50

If the engine dies at full throttle when you take your finger away, is that still the idle jet causing the problem? It does sound like a fuel / air problem though. Are all of the joints tight between the carb & the engine, reed cage etc? Does the carb float move freely, and the float valve / fuel p...

Re: New member from France with a 1986 Aero 50

Your idle jet is clogged. When you put your hand over the intake like that it's sucking gas through the main jet. You need to clean your carb.

Re: New member from France with a 1986 Aero 50

This ALSO is a CARDINAL offense...sewing needles are very brittle and subject to EASILY breaking off while inserted to suspect orifice. THEN, you have a major problem. Totally agree; it's the last attempt b/f I throw the carb out, but would always do this before trying to remove the idle tube in th...

Re: New member from France with a 1986 Aero 50

Am I wrong thinking the idle jet is not removable? I ordered a new auto-choke to test it... If it doesn't work, I'll do the idle circuit cleaning. These carbs are troublesome aren't they??? I have never experienced so much problems with a moped or 50cc carb before. I used to pour my gas in the tank...

Re: 1992 Elite 50cc dies with throttle / gas

Petcock won't cause that issue, but you can check the float level on the carb. That sounds like over rich condition... have you verified the main jet size and/or did this problem just start?
