Re: Headlights low on idle but get brighter on throttle up?

Sounds like a perfectly running stator, headlights run off stator current so start dim with lower rpm and increasingly brighten with rpm raise. Unless I'm misinformed that's how it's supposed to work.

Re: Big thanks to this great group!

Makes me happy reading you think the panels look good, next time I pull them I'll have to take pics of the inside! I'm in serious need of new panels hahaha. When I got them they were cracked and had 90% of the tabs and mounting holes broken... I did a few quick patches that with a close look are rem...

Re: Needle comparison help

Very true, I could clearly see a taper difference between the two I had but that could have just been shear luck of the draw for that specific case! Just trying to get this thing running good enough for now until I can place my big ol order including a polini carb from swap shop. After that I couldn...

Needle comparison help

Does anyone here have a stock spree needle (five clips) and a stock af16r needle that could take side by side pics of for me? I've got a hanging idle that got better by swapping a stock spree needle into my af16e. The carb I have for the af16 I'm guessing was molested at some point in time because i...

Re: Big thanks to this great group!

No hahaha I was spending more time waiting on the side of the road for my buddy on his ruckus then running! Had a few beers by the pier and got gas to. I think my average speed was about 30, I could comfortably cruise 45 but he couldn't and rubbing it in got a little old, just a little though.

Re: Big thanks to this great group!

A few kinks to work out but last nights ride was pretty good! Going this fast on a spree isn't the most comfortable thing in the world but now I know it's capable.... Biggest hill I had I was stuck behind a slow poke on a Harley so I feel I could have got more. He gave tons of props at the stop ligh...

Re: Air filter question

Don't goof like I did with my first at bat with a new spree and use bar and chain oil! I thought hey, works great on my stihl! Nastiest mess my carb has been plugged with yet! Best to use the same oil your bike is running with!

Re: Where are everyone finding elite 50 and dio engines?

It's a cat and mouse waiting game, I got lucky and by chance asked a guy if he had one that had just talked to a guy looking to sell one. Had an af16 at my door within 4 days, others have looked for months if not longer.

Re: Big thanks to this great group!

Yea it's the af16. I'm planning on doing the graphics, basic 3 "spree" but need to sand and revisit/paint a few areas this week to sit while I'm in Yellowstone next week, I got a little ahead of myself with the clear coat and had some flaking in very visible areas.
