Re: Honda Gyro Starters

As stated, LT80 brushes fit perfectly. Replaced the springs and brushes and the rubber gasket seal fit too. Back in business, starter spinning the motor great!

I ordered the LT80 rebuild kit as one of the brushes was totally worn and the wire was actually disconnected in my sta...

Re: Gyro - general thread

My 1987 Honda Elite 150 CH150 "Spacey" nor my BMS Tuscan 50 do this.

The CH150, key on turns on the headlight

The BMS, key doesn't turn on headlight untill motor is running.

Headlights low on idle but get brighter on throttle up?

Before I invest in a $90 stator. Does a stator sound like my issue? CH80

Thanks,

Re: CH80 Speedometer not working?
