Front Tire Orientation |\/| |/\|

So how does everyone mount their front tires? Just got some new 3.0-10 Michelin S1's for my 98 Elite, and debating on which way to go. On motorcycles, the typical convention is for the front tire treads to be facing "backward" (center of grooves pointing up), with the claims of better traction under...

Re: 1994 Honda Elite SA50P won't start

Yes 80psi is too low to start. 100-110min in general, manual calls for 114min see manual for service limit: section 3-7 (page 27) http://www.hondaspree.net/other/SA50_88-02_service.pdf the "turns over much faster now" part makes me think, something's not sealing right at piston/cyl. how much did you...

Re: AF05 carb on AF16 // PA 31M vs PA 35J carb differences

Beyond the main jet, the emulsion tube and needle are tuning components which change between different carb tags. Try swapping the AF16 e-tube, needle and jet in the AF05 carb. See this link for e tube comparisons. It gives an idea of variations. However I do not have a pic of the 88-93 etube. Plea...

Re: AF05 carb on AF16 // PA 31M vs PA 35J carb differences

Pulled off both carbs for comparison tonight, both are same venturi diameter size 13mm (not 14). Minor differences overall. Took a bunch of pics, will post some later. Running out of daylight to further test this carb swap, but still baffled as to the 88 vs 78 main jetting difference in this case :c...
