Re: WTB: SE50 Highway speed pipe

I had one, toast....they werent much to write home about. Youre better off getting a DJ-1R pipe and trying that. Same performance gain as Slick Willy (very minimal) and easy to find on Yahoo! Auctions or Buyee. Neither pipe will blow your mind but the sweet exhaust note makes you feel like youre goi...

Re: Non-modified Spree Top Speed

I would run a compression test after the hone/ring job to see what the bore is doing before I look to other areas.

Re: Build Ideas af16

Exhaust is what unlocks the power of all the other parts. I ran an Arrow for thousands of miles, swapped around on 3 different bikes before it finally broke. At the time, they were sold out everywhere so I went to trying any other ones I could find. After trying 4 different exhausts (not the technig...

Re: Starting issues

Tough cold starts is also a symptom of a lean condition. Check for air leaks.

Re: 1990 Elite LX 50 (SA50) grinding sound

Take the spark plug out and stick a screwdriver down the hole to hold the piston still while you tighten the crank nut.....KIDDING! Dont do that :) In a pinch, wrap a towel tightly around the drive face while holding it firm and torque the nut as best you can. I used this as a roadside repair to get...

Re: Battery reccomendation?

I buy the cheap $15/shipped ones off Ebay. I get 3 years out of them and buy new ones. I can get 5-6 of these for the price of one Lithium. Can the Lithium last 15yrs?...didnt think so. Also the fact that the battery on a Spree does very little besides START the thing. HeII, I ran one with NO batter...

Also, finding a good used OEM one for cheap shouldnt be too tough. ...

Re: 1990 Elite LX 50 (SA50) grinding sound

Ok so STOP doing that...lol. Opening it up will reveal the issue. Sounds like the starter bendix isnt meshing with the drive face teeth for some reason....and seeing the kick lever jump around during electric start leads me to think maybe the crank nut came loose and the drive face is flopping aroun...
