The Beast Subdued

Greetings: I've got The Beast :twisted: on the ropes. The tank sat soaking in my home-made Dip all weekend. Now I can see more metal than scum looking in. I plan to finish him off with the suggestions I've received. Thanks for your kindness. Cycle 3 began last night with another batch of Dip. I keep...

My Other Scooter

Greetings: I thought I'd post a photo of my Sportster. It's a 2002 1200 S, purchased new in November 2001. The S stands for the brilliantly redundant Sporster Sport. HD is not known for its clever nomenclature. FXDWSEI-III and such. This bike is a Blockhead Evo design introduced in 1985 when the H-D...

Greetings:

Nope, got those. The mystery ring is about half to 2/3 of that diameter and quite a bit thinner material cross-section. Still clueless am I.

Forum History

Greetings, DAC: I was not aware of the history here. Thanks for letting me know. His scooter did only 102 MPH?!. I thought it was 120. Dang! Bubble - b-burst. Soap -- in -- eyes... :cry: The assertion that ~Elite120~guy is restricting his airflow with that 6" elbow sewer pipe is unproven, but presum...

Dissin' Ram Air

Greetings: Sorry your scooter is inoperative. You can fix it, I know you can. Anyone who can imagine and execute such a cool-looking mod can figure out why it won't run. At one time, you could buy head temperature guages for snowmobiles. The sensor just screwed on under the sparkplug, reading on the...

Mystery O-Ring

Greetings:

Good suggestion, but negative. It's an unique diameter too. Nothing in the carb is close to that size except the throttle slide bore, and it's not apparent where the ring would go in there or why. Still stumped. As Jimmy says, "Just Ride it!".

Greetings: The key from you other Spree will likely fit in the slot but I doubt it will turn the switch. If you bring in the ignition switch, a locksmith can make a key that will turn it. The bike's ignition switch does the same thing as the light switch in your home. It connects or disconnects two ...

It's In Your Manual

Greetings:

The Aero 50 manual says BPR-6HS OR-HSA. I'll go out on a limb here and say either one is OK for a stock mill. The wrong plug can cause a lot of trouble but Soichiro Honda himself approved both.

I don't care what anyone says about function. It looks good. Ride on!

PS I'd look even better if you cut down that stud and put a nice chrome acorn cap nut on it before it impales your tibial artery. :mrgreen:

AERO '87 Carb Cleaning: Mini-Beast

Greetings: This process is ongoing in tandem with the Petrified Aero Tank. The carb contained the same stuff as in the tank, only less of it and much much harder. I call it Mini-Beast :evil:. I set the disassembled carb to soaking in a $50. bucket of NAPA Carb Cleaner - the kind with the little bask...

Scooterwerx asserts: "thanks for the link, i read half of it last night! im gonna go blind now"

Just exactly what kind of pictures is in that Two Stroke Tuner's Guide? :wink:

The semi-transparent orange-y one appears to be the float bowl drain. Confirm by unscrewing the brass screw adjacent the hose a turn or two and see if gasoline flows out - presuming there's fuel in the system. I can't quite see where the black one goes from your photos, but maybe someone knows this ...
