Re: Help...1985 Honda Elite 150 - Roached out...

Remove the petcock on bottom of the tank. That will allow tank to drain. Petcock has two hoses because one is to deliver fuel to carb, the other receives vacuum from the intake manifold. That petcock must have vacuum in order to open to allow flow. That is your FIRST LESSON in scooters 101. SECOND L...

Re: True Grits 50cc Fun Run

Sorry Vaughn, not yet. I took a few pix, but do not have the ability to download them onto this IPad. I am limited temporarily until my laptop is back online. Was a great year, however wet and leaves covered the roads for the most part. That all changed Sunday as we stayed over and rode about 5hours...

Re: Official NS50F thread

Yes... planning to be there.
Not real happy about forecast.
Rode last year too, wasn't very bad rain-wise.
Just for once I would really like it to be sunny and 70.
Couldn't get my RX50 Yamaha sorted in time...me thinks crank seals bad.
Look for me on my red Yamaha Jog Artistic Spec.

Re: Gyro NN50 No turn signals or instr. panel lights

It takes a fully charged battery to run the signals even when everything is good. If your battery is good and "hot", then I would simply buy the signal flasher at an auto parts store, and try it. If not the solution, start metering the wires from the switching. Go looking for any bad grounds,. those...

Re: Do not swap Spree engines

Once you learn about the difficulty trying to improve a Spree engine, you may better understand why the reply "swap a Dio" became a forum joke here. Maybe you have missed the genuine replies to Spree posts. In time, you too may understand the waste of time and money that is involved trying to improv...

Re: Need Opinions on My Endeavor

I am surprised that you don't like the front of the Elite when the 87 Elite is one of the most sought after model in some markets. My personal opinion is that Spree is a total waste of time. Trying to fashion a front-end body out of sheet metal would likely prove to be a daunting and un-fruitful ex...

Re: JDM scooters

Very cool but not necessarily accurate info given by the host of this video.
i.e. Yamaha Jog NOT made only 87-89 as I ride a 1993.
Belly pans are the shizzle.

Re: New Spree, couple of issues

Hey GardnerM...why not start a new thread, for example, "Aero 80 INFO Needed"
Post your questions.
That way, everyone can benefit from it.
One thing for sure, I don't have much help for you.
I bought ONE Aero 80 a few years ago, and found that the cold-start system is total trash.
Not a fan....mm

Re: WTB: 1986 or 1987 Honda Aero 50

I sure do like Aeros too. Have had all sizes, but 50cc is the shizzle. Will NEVER bother with another 80...hate'm. 125's are very cool...I managed to run one of those right into the ground...and loved every minute. Regarding JOG, I am totally in LOVE with my '93 Artistic Spec. Bought a JDM tail lamp...

Re: NN50 Question regarding motor

I have BOTH NN50M and TG50M. I see major difference regarding the WIDTH of the engine at the brake drums. I've NOT examined any more closely, but with the use of different wheels and tires, there is likely something changed regarding these items. YES, I agree it will prob bolt up okay...not sure abo...
