Re: High speed tires.....

If you want a good safety margin for the trailer, its sounds like you need M, N or P rated tires. The problem is that they are not common for tube tires (that the Spree rims need), nor for the 10 inch size. Some higher rated 10" tires I know of are: Continental ContiTwist Sport (M rated) Continental...

Re: 1986 Elite ch 150 not running

You'll need to replace that intake manifold(boot). Its not just getting vacuum for the petcock that is the issue - an intake leak like that will mean the mixture will be much too lean for the scooter to even start.

Re: Fixing Plastic

Like Turtle, I think that piece is polypropylene rather than ABS. In that case the MEK will not work and plastic welding would be your best bet.

Re: Can my carb be fixed?

Maybe you were trying to fit it with the spring from the idle speed screw or the mixture screw?

By "cylinder", I assume you mean the emulsion tube. There is no spring anywhere near there.

Re: Bear - This Aero 125 could be yours!!!!

I had a feeling you wouldn't be able to resist.

A parts bike price AND with a title!

I'm sure that 2-stroke 125 would beat the pants off my 4-stroke 150 Elite :geekdance:

Re: Starter Relay Clicks. PLEASE HELP!

it still sounds like a battery issue to me. That's what I would think except that he has tried it jumping with his truck battery too. Its hard to imagine that a normal Spree or Elite starter could kill a car battery. Then his truck battery would have to be really bad, and surely he would notice tha...

Re: Starter Relay Clicks. PLEASE HELP!

I thought you said earlier that you tried to start it with a truck battery too and got the same result? If that's not true, then everything points to a run down/bad battery. Your description of the problem is confusing because I don't think you're using the term "got the same result" with the genera...

So does it do this with both starters or only the once with the original starter and then nothing since then?

Re: Starter Relay Clicks. PLEASE HELP!

Then by process of elimination I would say its probably the +ve wire between the relay and the starter. Maybe it got melted somewhere along its length. If you have a spare scooter bulb laying around you could rig up a test lamp to see if it lights when the starter switch is engaged. You can also dou...

Re: Starter Relay Clicks. PLEASE HELP!

OK - just to check I understand what you have tried: Tried jumping from a good car battery and no go Swapped out original starter motor for a different one that is known to work The sound of the relay clicking is normal and just indicates that the relay is making a connection at the terminal.

Re: plastic repair(not scooter)

Are you quite certain that its plastic. It looks more like powder coated metal from the pics you posted. Whether its plastic or metal, the best way to repair would be to use a sleeve joint. Find another piece of tube that just fits over and either solder after scraping off the surface finish if meta...

Re: Honda Part numbers

By the way, an AF18 engine Dio would be either SK50MJ or SK50MK model numbers!

What does the engine code at the rear of the transmission casing show?
