Re: Crankcase Drain Hole

Don't drill a hole in case. Remove oil pump and flip the motor. This only happens with engines left for storage a long time; it's unlikely to repeat.

Re: 1985 or 1986 honda nb50g previous owner put motor oil in oil receptical...not 2 stroke oil.

Motor oil by itself wouldn't likely kill the engine in near term. There's an article in the wiki about barn-find scooters; read that for my thoughts on how to determine what's wrong and what it needs. http://hondaspree.net/wiki/index.php5/Getting_a_Dead_Scooter_Back_on_the_Road And yes, all mystery ...

Re: 1988 Elite Carburetor Gaskets and Fuel Petcock

If vacuum is disconnected and plugged off the petcock is likely faulty. I'd replace it; new ones are <$10 on Ebay last I checked. If carb is leaking around bowl you may need a bowl gasket; if it's leaking out of the overflow you may need a new needle valve. Outside these two parts + bystarter there'...

Re: Note for noiseguy on how to fix spammers

Let's you turn the Wanted/For Sale section into a bigger commerce then what it is. That part of the board is one of the biggest source of issues here... I can't imagine what it would be like with un-registered members. I like the idea of a guest place to ask Q's. I could actually set it to self-del...

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...

Re: New member from France with a 1986 Aero 50

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.

Re: Carbon fiber reeds for late Spree, $5 shipped for first ten

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 ...
