Re: Rebuild top end or replace motor?

Find the problem..could be as simple as a $5 blown head gasket. Even a loose or broken head bolt, etc...DIAGNOSE IT before you make a decision.

Re: WTB Honda Met wheels (front and rear)

Shouldve powder coated an SA50 brake hub while you were at it...have to swap the stem and use Met/Ruck legs, speedo cable, etc...just to use the Met hub.

Re: 85 Spree Not Starting! HELP

Spark, air, fuel...figure out what youre NOT getting. Clean/Dry the plug, give it 3 kicks and check it...is it wet? Plug gap in spec? Dangle the plug from it’s tail and give it some kicks...got spark? Hows the airbox/filter?...the Spree is super picky about that air system being in tip top order. Fr...

Re: Just another AF16 Spree Swap

Vapor speedo sensor might cause you headache. Is there no other option? Maybe thats how they all are, I never looked close enough.

Re: Honda Elite 50 will not start!!!!! PLEASE HELP!

Spark would be where Id look....maybe bad ignition coil, CDI, loose connection somewhere. Stator and wiring gremlins is also a possibility. If you have many Spree’s, and your Turquoise Elite is an SB50...the parts are interchangeable. Swap in some known good parts until she fires up. Then shop for r...

Re: Honda Spree Front Fairing Repair

Thats a pretty sticky spot to repair since the nose cap piece sits in that groove. I would suggest any build-up from the repair be on the inside. Mess up that groove and the nose cap will never sit on there right. Keep us posted on the progress. Ive tried a couple different epoxies and special magic...

I cant start without spraying the air intake with fluid.

I'm assuming the non starting is because too much fuel?
If the non starting is because too much fuel...how could spraying MORE make it start? :crazy:

Re: 85 Spree Start issue then full throttle

Could be a sticky cable and needs lube. Also cable could be kinked or routed in such a way that creates too sharp of a bend.

Re: Crankcase Bearing Race Crack

The rub marks certainly tell the tale of a spun bearing. Luckily, good used Spree cases are fairly inexpensive. I would toss it and find a good one to rebuild. Be sure to check the big end bearing play on whatever crank you use before it goes in.
