Re: Gyro - general thread

that motor is basically an AF01 lead 50 engine with a different 3 rear wheel transmission. a real close cousin to the 83-84 ab07 aero 50 engine. all use 6004 crank bearings, same side oil pump, and crank shaft diameters

Re: Project: Gyro

you can get a lot of that rust cleaned off those parts by soaking them in diesel. I wouldn't soak the clutches though. soak the rusted metal parts for a day or 3. then wire brush the loose rust off. repeat if necessary. ive split a few of these engines and haven't needed any special tools to separat...

Re: 1983 Aero 50 starter issue

check your fuse that comes off the battery. also make sure you pull the brake handle and the brake tight comes on. if the brake switch is bad the starter wont work.

Re: Honda vision mini NT50 tyre size upgrade help

3.00 will slow down take off a lot with out a variator. and other than a spacer between the front pulley halves, and a wider little longer belt, to hopefully get it higher on the rear pulley, you don't have many choices for replacing that low end torque for take off. maybe stiffer clutch springs, or...

Re: af16 build questions

My scoots are dialed..I was simply offering insight to trans tuning and shining light on the point that 0-60 shouldnt be the only focus. I personally think trans tuning is widely overlooked as being the most critical part of how the motor performs. Bolting on gobs of power adders is useless if the ...

Re: Honda Spree with no low end power from stop.

I agree with everything said so far. im guessing the belt is worn too thin/narrow. or the contra spring is worn out. while the spree isn't variated, it still will pull the belt towards the center at high rpm. do you have a long hill near by? start at the top and get a rolling start. will it get up t...

Re: af16 build questions

Tuning for deceleration (for me) is tougher than acceleration. When youre slowing down from 60 to 30 going into a corner, you’ll want that vari to downshift so its not a dog when get on it after you straighten out again. Nothings worse than climbing a hill going 25mph because your vari is stuck ope...

Re: 1985 "Trash Aero" project

I get what youre saying about the panel/ pipe cutting toss up. I wouldn't think of it as cutting up a fabrizi pipe, If you have a good welder, It could be considered a tasteful modification to accommodate a custom application... that sounds professional.. lol as far as the clutch wear, I cant speak ...

Re: 1985 "Trash Aero" project

I like the zx wheels. did you get them from that place I told u about? you should bid on a belly pan and a ...
