1989 Honda Elite E

Post by phadad10 » Tue Jan 08, 2019 5:27 pm

Runs rough and white smoke coming out. I changed the plug and lots of oil on new plug. Does the this oil pump have a throttle cable cause I don't see it. I did just clean the carb maybe the float is stuck. any Ideas? Why so much oil?

I am guessing the oil pump is leaking. I would run it until all the oil sitting in the crankcase is burnt up.

The elite e is basically a spree motor on a different frame/body. It does not have a cable going to the oil pump to control it. My understanding is that most of these 50cc hondas will leak some oil into the motor/carburetor when sitting for an extended period of time.
