Re: Having a terrible time with cir-clips

Greetings: It's a "Flick O' the Wrist" type of thing. 1. Watch as many videos of piston installation as you can find. Slow-mo the movement if you can. 2. Stuff the crankcase with a clean shop rag and make sure the clip won't fly away and be magnetically drawn to the floor drain under the water heate...

Re: Carb and jetting questions AF 16

Greetings:

Flash 9 is a Polini Contesta - similar performance to the Airsal, I imagine, with a stock pipe and airbox. 90 runs great. 92 and it falls on its face with anything above half throttle. You might be a tad Rich.

Vise Grips could conceivably damage the drive face. Pick up THIS. You can get it much cheaper if you shop. The pins lock the clutch too.

Re: 1990 Elite LX 50 (SA50) grinding sound

Greetings: If you mean the nut on the end of the crankshaft, I'd have a really close look at the splines on that crank-end, and those of the "starter" gear. If by this you mean the outer pulley sheave, that nut gets torqued with the crank locked to about 44 ft-lbs (This is from Wheel-Memory; ALWAYS ...

Re: nb50 rear wheel

Greetings: THere was no 1988 NB50. Production of the Aero model ended with the 1987 model year. For that one year, the SE50 Elite was sold alongside the Aero. All the variated SE05 and AF16 rear rims are compatible, as far as I know. The Early model Metropolitan rims - still available from Honda - a...

Re: My Spree won’t start and I don’t know why.

Greetings:

Can you confirm gasoline is getting to the cylinder? "Great" compression? What PSI are you reading? (Hold throttle open wide or remove the carb to check.)

Re: 94 Sa50p Malossi BBK Install- Carb questions

Greetings: You absolutely can run a BBK with stock exhaust, carb, airbox. The gain in performance will be substantial, unlike your experience with the GY6. Mine worked best with a 90 main. 92 and it 4-strokes badly and falls flat on its face at WOT. See specs. With 9:1 gears - no others need apply -...

Re: Float adjustment

Greetings: Honda's solution to the level issue is to replace the float. Fortunately the carb kit can still be found and it's relatively cheap. I may have the only PA carb that actually has a metal tab on its float. Engine is from a 2001, possibly a very late model of that year. Swapped with another ...

Re: 1984 aero 50 motor swap to a 1985 spree

Greetings:

Yes,... if... The trouble with the 1984 is that there are few (if any?) go-slightly-faster parts. Even stock parts might be hard to source, as the design was only sold here for 2 years. Still, the variator ensures better-than-Spree performance in acceleration and overall.

Re: 87 Spree gets hot and stalls while riding.

Greetings: Follow-up to Bones' questions: Did you make any changes, adjustments, or parts replacements just before the symptom appeared? It's not common, but sometimes the problem is electrical. A coil that's going bad can work while cool, but fail as it gets hot. VR might do the same. Components te...

Re: Honda Aero 50 For Sale, Clean Title, 860 miles, just got it tuned up 7/4/20

Greetings:

WOW!! Just from a glimpse of that sideways pic, you could ask $1500 just for that intact black plastic panel between the rear turn signals. Yes it's that rare to see one unbroken. This is a beautiful classic white Aero. The buyer will need to see the title. Good luck with your sale.
