Re: Final Scooter

Long time no post. Well, to put it bluntly, I no longer have the Yamaha 950. I got tired of wondering how much money I would eventually start dropping in it. I'm a scooter guy through and through. So, still riding the Elite, 5500 miles so far. I'm getting about 80-85 mpg riding WOT for 21 miles each...

Re: Final Scooter

They had some mods from Japan, but out of my price range, and some aren't available anymore. I just ride in town, 45 limits almost everywhere. It's an easy ride everywhere here.
Hopefully when we get a house soon, I'll be on the lookout for a nice Elite 50 to mod. Always been my dream to do that.

Re: Final Scooter

Thanks Mike! I'm enjoying the * out of it, except for a few stupid cages trying to race me at every light. I usually beat them until that "I can't let a scooter beat me!" mentality kicks in. Anyways, I've been without a car for just under a year, I rode every day for three months in the Seattle area...

Re: Final Scooter

Hey from sunny Arizona! Well, a lot has happened in the almost year I have been gone. Left the Seattle area back in August last year, brought the Elite with me, now it has a big sister in the form of a '09 Yamaha V-Star 950. I ride the 950 almost every day back and forth to work, but the Elite gets ...

Re: New to me CB125s

Is that a cb400 super sport tank? Looks too big for the 125. And the shape looks wrong, seat don't fit right at the tank.

Final Scooter

Finally! After a week without transportation (sold the Cabrio, much to my delight), I've been searching far and wide for a scooter to get me back and forth to work. Many, many tries later, I picked up a 2010 Honda Elite 110. Looked at one in red, but the "minor scratches" turned out to be "laid down...

Re: Will only kickstart occasionally.

If the battery is bad, you won't be able to get your stuff to work. Even if you charge it, if its bad, its bad. You should have about 14 volts at a fully charged battery, if you have 12 volts, its not holding a charge.

Re: Looking at a new ride.

Thanks for the info, he lives out by Alki Beach, quite a ways from me, so it will have to be this weekend if I do get to go look.
I will check it over good before making a decision.
My biggest concern would be the belt from what I've been reading here.

Looking at a new ride.

In talks with a guy in West Seattle who has an Aero 125 for sale. Talked him down to $550, looks to just need a battery, has 1400 miles on it. I am trying to set up a meeting time, I usually have a 3 hour window to look during the week.
So, anything to look for when I do go?
