E-50 gets here today. I’ve got a new carb, crank, and seals coming next week. Time take off the ZA while the weather is warm enough to work!
Why are ya switching to a e-50 instead of the ZA? Just curio
I was getting what I believe to be the “death rattle”. I know I can get the e-50 rebuilt, and running by spring with the time I have. So the za50 will be on the back burner for awhile. I’ll find another frame I can put it on, and make a nice stock bike. Thinking about using that for moped gp this year, in the stock class.
I made a plug for mine from a non-cork wine cork. Works sweet. It's here:
That's a good looking bike!
Thanks! I’ve definitely made it mine. Few more minor things I want to do aesthetically, but not much.
Thanks for continuing to bump this by posting and documenting your Rogers's. It helps others learn too.
So this summer after I installed my ebrs I noticed they ended up coming loose As I rode. They had forward, and backward slop. I noticed I have this gap on the bottom cup. Doesn’t matter how tight the nut that sets the preload (can’t remember the proper name) is it doesn’t close the gap anymore. I have all the correct hardware being used. Any ideas? (edited)
Keep posting your progress and trials .
As for the stem , maybe a drop or two of loctite ?
Those brake shoes look OK to me . Just shoot them with brake cleaner and ruff the contact surfaces . run 'em .
If you don't already have it , here's a parts catalog :
Great tool for seeing what parts are suppose to be where and , of course , numbers and names .
FYI : I grew up in Hudsonville . Way back , we spent a lot of nights 'gathered' at the Rainbow Grill in my teen years . ;)
That’s kind of the plan. Just wanted to document this. I ended up forgetting the shim on the bottom come, but I put it on, and I still have that gap that is driving me nuts. I’m hoping it won’t come loose this time, but that’s the next step is throwing some blue Loctite on it. I’ve got some other stuff I can peck away at while I wait for my treats. Also, yeah I lived in Grand Rapids, and Comstock Park most my life. We moved to Grandville a few years ago when my wife, an I bought a house. My parents live over in Jenison, so just a rock throw away. Hudsonville is going downhill though. Suburbs popping up everywhere, and taxes are insane over there.

Seems Hudsonville isn't the only place with that claim to fame .
GR metro , actually all of west Michigan , was my 'stomping ground' until my early 20s . College , jobs and girls ... not necessarily in that order . ;)
We lived on Northlawn in NE GR for 17 years before we went full time RVing . That was about 8 years ago . Sold the house 3 years ago as we didn't want to live there anymore .
You’re not lying! all of metro GR is poppin. In Grandville we’re in a good spot. All the crazy kind happens around us. It’s pretty mellow in our neighborhood thankfully, and taxes aren’t that bad.
