Re: aero 50 belt

Greetings:

15mm is the minimum width, as I recall. Some P.O. might've simply put the wrong belt on it. Check for markings on the belt you have. It should measure no more than 644mm with a tape run around the outside.

Re: SPREE (and Elite) REPLACEMENT DECALS SCANNED 4 U !!

Greetings:

If you mean my 49RR, they were decals I found years ago on fEeBaY. Stuck 'em on my side skirts and they never left... Seems a little pretentious when you think they're identical to the graphics on the mighty CBRs, but that's what makes them fun.

Those look GREAT! Consider my favorite 49 RR adorning the flanks of Flash 9.

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

Greetings: Not all the listed gears will be easy to find. Be aware that 9:1 gears work pretty well on an otherwise completely stock Elite, so with all the go-faster goodies you're getting, you could consider going a good bit taller. 8.44:1 will still move out faster than a stock engine on 12:1s, and...

Re: 67cc big bore for nq50 ??

Greetings: I believe I understand the position BrodyMartin73 is in; You have the Spree, with a worn top end, the kit is cheap, and it'll be kinda fun to install it and experiment. Chances are that the displacement bump will provide a welcome increase in power if you can get it to work and last. A co...

Re: 85 spree 49cc no fuel bad petcock ?

Greetings: Gumming up depends on the scooter's history. The Aero that a friend sold me to go down this Path of Madness in 2008 was purchased at an estate auction. Apparently it was in a shed from the early 1990s until then. The full tank of gasoline had over the Eons boiled down to a 1/2" thick she...

Re: Best Gears to run in a AF/16 Dio

Greetings: Stock or Sport iron cylinder without other mods do just fine on 9.1:1 gears, and can hit 50 on stock cylinder - OK Downwind. Polini or Malossi iron can huck up to 55 or more- at least Flash 9 can. If you opt for Corsa, MHR or Fabrizi, you can use 8:1 or taller, depending on carb & pipe.

Re: New spree owner What and Where Tires

Greetings:

Lots and lots of websites sell tires, some with free shipping. FROM READING ONLY, a 2.75 should fit and be a nice upgrade adding a bit more Cush to the 2" of undamped front suspension travel. For example, here.

Re: opinions on best variated AF05e big bore kit

Greetings: From READING only, the earliest AF18s had the same 10mm crankshaft diameter as the Aero/SE 05 variated engines. You can't use the AF16 ramp plate because of that difference. The Malossi Primary gears are easy to swap, but the 7.83 gear ratio is pretty tall for the power you have, even wit...

Re: Just another AF16 Spree Swap

Greetings: Sorry you had to deal with The Spectacle, Meat. This is why I really like my stock silencer and airbox on #9. Nobody knows what it can do. (58). My little town's population has an average age of 120, and the Avalons and Buicks are easy to best from the stoplight. In-town speed limit is 45...

Re: SPREE (and Elite) REPLACEMENT DECALS SCANNED 4 U !!

Greetings: I certainly don't count myself an expert on Honda Elite lore, but it has been my understanding that the Spree-engine SB-50 ELITE "E" was sold in an unrestricted, slightly-higher-performing called the Elite ES . The plain-ol' Elite " S " was actually an SA-50 (variated engine) full-sized E...

Re: Wanted Metropolitan Rims

Greetings: If there are none on the Forum, I got a brand-new one from a Honda dealership for about $100. The rims on Project bikes tend to take a beating on the brake side, slowing and stopping from speeds these 95mm drums were never intended to corral. They soon grow out-of-round, making you vibrat...
