Re: Bypass the right brake handle?

Does the brake light come on when you pull either brake handle?

Re: LOW COMPRESSION ON FRANKENSPREE

There is no way the compression will jump 35 to 50 PSI from the throttle being opened.

Re: LOW COMPRESSION ON FRANKENSPREE

Also after the first test, put a 1/2 teaspoon of 2 stroke oil in the spark plug hole, let sit for 10 minutes and do the test again. If the number comes up like 20 PSI this will tell if you have a real problem or the rings are just not seated yet.

Re: Iowa Spree Lands in New Mexico

65 to 68 is only on step, but the EPA required a lean burn to start with, so one step is pushing it.

Re: Iowa Spree Lands in New Mexico

5 mph and taking a chance on burning up the piston from too lean a fuel/air mixture, not smart modding.

Re: Possible Bystarter?

If the bystarter was bad the motor would be too rich after warm up at idle at idle and would die all by itself. Your scooter tech has no clue what a bystarter does or how it works.

You don't need to hold any brakes when kick starting, only when electric starting.

Re: e-bay 49cc cylinder kit...pure crap

Greetings: I'm proud to say I'm foolisher than only twicet. Then again, some Forumista report really good results with the same 51mm kits that failed me.

Re: e-bay 49cc cylinder kit...pure crap

Greetings: Yeah, but I used good oil and proper break-in with all of 'em. Only the cheapies failed despite that.

Re: auto bystarter

I have an Aero 125 that the PO converted the electric bystarter to a manual with a nylon fish line running up and out of the plastics. It works too, but I have never disassembled it to see what he did.

Re: e-bay 49cc cylinder kit...pure crap

Bad port timing will not cause the cylinder to go out of round. It will cause poor performance but improper break in and cheap oil cause excessive wear.
