Re: Spree tire spin at idle

Might wanna get a new belt installed if you haven't already. As for the spinning, could be a couple things. 1. New padding just needs a bit of break in time, JWPartplus lines them pretty thick so might experience a slight rubbing on the bell till you've put a few miles. 2. bearings in the wheel migh...

Re: Rare parts value

I'd go maybe $40 on the glovebox since it's missing clips, maybe $50-60 for mat. Seat is worthless with tear, needs re upholstered. If you can find a sucker willing to pay higher, good luck.

Re: Looking for low speed gears, or pulleys. 1985 Spree.

Your 85' has the exact same gears as the 84-87 Iowa editions (12T). There is not a lower gear available.

Re: NQ50 Big Bore Kit Instructions?

No, but you'll want to do some intake modifications. Stock Spree intake just doesn't have what it takes. Links in my signature.

Re: where to find high speed final drive spree gears

Like these? First thing that came up on ebay search. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Honda-Spree-NQ50-15-81-Upgrade-Gear-Set/372139759535?hash=item56a54217af:g:vdQAAOSwjXRXaLbt Yep, that would be the gears you need. Wouldn't run it without a BBK though, you'll be doing a Flintstones takeoff @49cc. If that...

Re: Wondering about 1986 Spree w/ 70cc Upgrade

Sprees are 2 stroke engines, they don't have a cam. Also, the BBK is a 48mm or 68cc. No such thing as a 70cc. If it's running bad, blame the guy who installed the BBK incorrectly (pretty common for people to screw it up). As for offering him $700.. HA!! I'd be hard pressed to offer someone $300. Sou...

Re: Your spree top speed?

Stock, my Iowa did like 23-25, top speed now is 52mph. That's with a rider who is within the recommended weight range (180lbs or less). Myself personally (320lbs), I can get it to around 42-44 if the wind is on my side.

Re: 1989 nq50

The NQ50 was only produced from 84-87 and it doesn't have a gas filter unless you count the one inside the petcock. You sure it's a Spree?

Re: JW Parts Plus clutch re-surfacing

Nope, sure don't. You'll need to use the contact form. I just made a paypal payment for the service, and they E-mailed me instructions and gave me a service number. Basically, you box up the old clutch and bell housing if you like (they'll bead blast it for a few bucks more) and send it off to them....

Re: Honda Spree with no low end power from stop.

It is basically a straight pipe but did not improve the power. A straight pipe will actually kill performance. A 2 stroke engine works different then a 4 stroke. It relies on back pressure from the muffler to send a sonic pulse back up into the cylinder that has unspent fuel in it. Without it, you ...

Re: Honda Spree with no low end power from stop.

Clutch can be repadded by JWPARTSPLUS. https://www.jwpartsplus.com/jw-clutch-worx.html Highly doubt it's the springs. If the springs were shot, the clutch would engage too soon because they couldn't resist the centrifugal force anymore from being worn. But none the less, good idea to change them if ...
