Re: 1985 Honda Gyro starter issues

Not sure if this will help, but my local Ace Hardware has a pretty good selection of brushes in their parts bin/drawer section of the store. You may be able to come up with something that may work.

Re: 86 Spree NQ50 Fast Idle

When you pulled the carb did you take it apart and clean it? If so my guess is you have the the throttle plunger installed incorrectly. There is a groove in the plunger and a pin in the throat those must line up to allow the plunger to move smoothly.

Re: Crankcase Drain Hole

This is a 2 stroke right? Where did you put the 10-30? There should not be any oil in the crank case besides what the oil injection puts in.

Ebay Spree Parts

Even though I no longer have a spree I still look on EBay at what is available and the ridiculous prices being asked. Here is one of the many. The shipping is more than price and the shipping is crazy high.

Re: 1988 Elite SA50 carburetor

My guess is you have the throttle plunger (not sure of the correct name) rotated 180 deg. There is a slot in the plunger and that needs to line up with the pin in the carb throat. Remove the cap on the carb, slide the plunger out and when you install it make sure the groove in the plunger is lined u...

Re: 1988 Elite SA50 carburetor

Remove the steel tube from the hose. It is most likely a piece that broke off from the previous carb.

Re: Oil leak

Thanks all,

It is a 2T and I have in the last few weeks cleaned and oiled the filter. The leak is defiantly originating from the underside of the airbox. I will disassemble and wring out all the oil.

Thanks again.

Oil leak

Hi All, I have a 2001 Zuma and over time oil leaks out of the bottom of the air filter housing. l clean it off and a couple of days later it is running down the kick start covers. Not much, but it is annoying. Would adjusting the air screw make any difference? It runs and starts great. Any ideas wha...

Re: 2001 Zuma

My item #3 has a hole in it. Looks like it may be for a hold down of some type. If you look at the parts diagram the hole is not shown and I do not have the mating hole on the panel circled in red. Also how does item #9 fit in. I can see where the top plastic snap fits, but what keeps the bottom in?...

Re: Zuma Idle Speed

Latest..... Checked for leaks could not find anything. Removed and cleaned the carb, looked clean but cleaned it anyways. One thing I did notice. When I first start and take-off everything is good. Come to a stop light/sign and rev goes right back down. I live in a warm climate and this seems to be ...

Re: Zuma Idle Speed

Thanks, But where and how do I search for an air leak? Could it be rubber hose to the inlet of the carburetor or where the outlet where it connects to the manifold?
