I just want to share this story
I've fixed the problem a while ago, but wanted to see if anybody could tell what the problem was.
Last summer I was working on and restoring my Magnum mk II that i had just gotton. I was fixing each little thing at a time.
I had noticed that when It was running there was tranny fluid comming out were the clutch cable went into the engine. (i later found out that this was becasuse there was too much fluid in there)
So i take the cover off and start looking around and then i start taking things apart and i couldn't find anything. I put it back together and put too much fluid back in again, and Go to fire it up, and it starts.
I twist the trottle and the engine revs up to full rpm, and the bike goes no where?
This really makes me think. hummmmm? what the F#@*.
I then push the bike along while the engine is running and pull the clutch lever for the second time. This then puts the bike into second gear from what appears to be neutral. It usally stalled, but sometimes i got it going from 2nd.
I fooled around a little bit and got it to do something new.
If it was in neutral (which it was always in when you started up the bike), and i was idling it low, and i was at a stop, i would lean the bike close the ground and POP!!!!!!! It clicked into 1st. It would also click into 1st if I bounced the front wheel up and down from a stop.
After i found out how to get it into 1st from neutral it was pretty cool. I was ridding it around like a motorcycle.
I would be at a stop sign in neutral, I would bounce the front tire up and down to get it to click into first, it would then switch into 2nd by itself. When I would slow down to about 5mph it would click into neutral and i would rev the engine again.
Reving the engine on a moped sounds pretty cool.
cooler then when it is on the stand
I later discovered the problem and fixed it.
Can anyone guess what the problem was?
Hint: it had to do with me fooling around in the transmission.
