Re: How to fix stripped crank splines

Yeah, I'd just keep an eye out for a complete engine or bottom end and swap the entire thing. They're still pop up occasionally.

Re: How to fix stripped crank splines

That's a better solution than welding; at least you can take it apart without a grinder. My concern would be around weakening crank around that spot, but these motors don't generate that much torque in the first place.

Re: Spree New Brake switch

Also, take a close look at the Honda switch. Many can be rebuilt if you're careful, take apart and clean contact surfaces.

Re: Spree New Brake switch

Pull up the factory wiring diagram from the service manual. Huh, you're right. I just check the online parts fische and can't find the levers anywhere. I did find aftermarket levers, and looks like CRF50 is the same, so assume whole design is probably alike. There's tons of china knockoff of either ...

Re: Elite-E, Won't Start

Well, it runs! And surprisingly, nobody here has posted the answer. I'm currently banging my head against the wall. Here it is: the exhaust was clogged. I've run into that 3x IRL, once on a moped and twice on cars. It's the last thing that gets checked and should be higher on everyone's list I gues...

Re: Elite-E, Won't Start

Read this. TLDR your carb is dirty and you need to get the electric start fixed before you break your kick start. http://hondaspree.net/wiki/index.php5/Getting_a_Dead_Scooter_Back_on_the_Road When the bike is a going concern, the "kick start" is more of a "gently push the pedal" start... but you won...

Re: Plz help 1992 afo5e rebuild help

Bearings are a generic item, as are seals, but all are available new from Honda dealer or online. This is not a simple repair; it's one of the most technically complex on these bikes.

Re: 2019 Honda Super Cub

A small front rack to mount a basket, or a basket mount, would be just the thing. Sounds like a business opportunity calling. On shifting stopped bike, I used to bump the clutch out while stopped and in neutral to get the gears moving, then drop it into first if it wouldn't go in from a standstill. ...

Re: 2019 Honda Super Cub

I would go with custom rear rack and panniers. But that's me. I remember these auto-shift engines. I don't recall rolling off throttle 100%, it was more like you backed off a bit and then shifted to next highest gear. Downshift was same but note you couldn't use it to slow down nearly as effectively...

Re: Lightweight Rear Rim Option for SA50

The aluminum wheel should be lighter. The reason guys chase light wheels for automotive is b/c it lowers unsprung mass, which makes the car ride better and, more importantly, keeps the tires down to track better when they're bumped... basically it's less mass for the spring to press back down so the...

Re: First Spree - the Front wheel is wobbling and seems off center suggestions?

Bent front wheels are pretty common. Sometimes means fork is bent too, so you should check that. You can see the wobble by putting the bike on stand and rolling front wheel; it will have a spot where it goes to one side or other, consistently on same spot. I've had little luck fixing bent wheels... ...

Re: New spree owner What and Where Tires

As Wheelman said, a lot of options online. I'd buy a pair of tubes and some motorcycle tire irons and replace them yourself; it's not difficult work. The 2.75 will fit; it gets close to the fork in this case.

Re: Screwed

So the dot is what designates a JIS screw? Good to know. I've a couple Craftsman JIS drivers that I keep hidden so they aren't used for phillips stuff.
