Check that the previous owner didnt bypass this wire and connect d...

Re: Honda Scooters Available in Your Area

Re: 1999 Elite S w/ Polini Corsa: What GEARS ?

Save some cash and skip buying a jet kit for the stock carb since you’ll ditch it when you go Corsa. Why buy parts you’ll use for a week? Gotta buy main/pilot kits for new carb too anyways.

Re: Af05e rod bearings

Well, cranks can be had from overseas. Finding the proper one and paying dearly for shipping puts it in the “not worth it” category, in my opinion. If you had spare motors laying around with simply bad crank bearings then that would be a viable option for the very low cost of bearings/labor. Of cour...

Re: Af05e rod bearings

Have you tested the headlight to confirm it is dead?
