Re: NH125 Question

Per Partzilla, 1983-84 NH80 and 1984 NH125 use the same part for ignition switch.

Re: Minimal items needed to run a spree?

For those that don't know, he's referring to this: https://goo.gl/images/HxyFn8 The idea is that you remove all un-needed metal (including doors and such) in the ultimate weight-lightening activity. It's completely analogous to what Burnt did with his Spree. A few of my buddies are doing these now; ...

Re: At what point is it not a Spree anymore? Fastest Spree

Spree needs to be 1 speed, and so you need to keep the single pulley. Everything else to me is fair game.

If you have access to a full machine shop, I'd find the biggest, meanest bore that will fit the case and swap that on... 80cc+, then stroke out the crank, and see what you can get from that.

I'm including the gaskets; it bugs me that these carbon fiber reed sets don't come with them standard, since you need to replace them at the same time.

Re: 1993 Honda elite sr major oil leak

Hey fellas, I just bought my new to me 1993 and it seems like I may have to just scrap everything besides the brakes and ignition. The engine smokes terribly but it will make 30 mph which is decent enough for key west. I am just curious to know if you guys can give me an estimate on what it would c...

Re: Carbon fiber reeds - new product

How frequently do you need to replace the reeds? My '01 Elite has about 5k on it...is it something I should be looking into? If there's any gap between the block and the reed on removal, they need replaced. Aside from that it's a common performance upgrade. The Spree reeds are about completed; will...

Re: Starter bolts!

If you go to parts sites like Partzilla, the Honda parts drawings specify the type and length of all bolts on the scooter. For example: BOLT, FLANGE (6X20) is a flange bolt M6 20mm long.

Re: 87 Honda Aero 50, driven gear sheared off. fixable?

You need to read up on engine swaps and what's involved. Only another 1987 SE50 engine will be a direct swap-in. The SA50 engine will fit, but will likely require rework of engine mount (read: welding) and probably some other minor items.

Re: 87 Honda Aero 50, driven gear sheared off. fixable?

Basically there's only one part you need out of that mess, and it's the SA50 engine, only if it's in working order. The older Aero 50 is so unusual as to be... much less valuable except perhaps in part. I'm betting the SA50 is frame wrecked.

Re: 87 Honda Aero 50, driven gear sheared off. fixable?

Ok, is something like this more like it ? I'm sure this is a huge pita to swap, like you guys said. That crank may be correct but it's been sitting in a wet environment and per seller needs rod bottom end bearing replaced. I changed my mind; swapping *that* bearing is the hardest job on the engine....

Re: 87 Honda Aero 50, driven gear sheared off. fixable?

If I was going to swap in a different motor and let's say I couldn't find a working 87 Aero 50. Does anyone know what other options I have? Can I swap in something newer like an Elite motor? Thanks again for all the help! I wouldn't focus on a running '87 Elite motor. I'd focus on any '87 Elite 50 ...

Carbon fiber reeds - new product

Folks:

Thinking about having some carbon fiber reeds made up for Honda Spree (and eventually other models.) Here's the current design, which (I think) covers the SB50 and 86/87 reed blocks.

Who's interested?
