Re: honda spree speed limiter

This last year I reverted my '85 spree back to a more "original" configuration due to the gas milage.

I bought the moped in 86 with 300 miles on it. After 2000 miles I blew a hole ( water corrosion) in my exhast pipe. At that point this is what I did:

Placed a modified Honda 80 exhaust pipe onto it to reduce the restricted flow.

Placed a circular airfilter on the carb to get rid of the airflow restriction.

Used a Bosch Super Platinum Spark Plug - if you do anything do this! They run better at high RPM's then even any Japanese manufactured plugs and will give consistant ignition.

Ran Evenrude high performance 2 cycle oil.

Ran super unleaded gas - with the occasional 108 octane boost.

I was going to port the head and give more top end, but at this rate I was already passing vehicles on the local freeway doing 55+

Anything more start looking for a carburator from an 80 or 90 to put into it.

The airflow restriction is in dire need to be removed.

Might want to find a larger rear tire in the 3.5 range to fit on the back side to help stabilize it. No guarantess, but that was also my next move - if I remember right.

I still run the Bosch Plug. But everything else is gone back to the original and sold .

Good luck - but I will leave you with this parting words:

The faster you go the more squirlier it will get.

Could you help me out and tell me specifically which model of spark plug and which type of air filter. Did you remove the variator restrictor? Thanks!!!

Re: honda spree speed limiter

I have recently bought an 86' honda spree, and i read all of the stuff above. I really want it to go faster. I would like it to max out at about 40-50 mph or the best i could get, nothing above 50. I was wondering if you guys could tell me in detail how to do it, if you had any suggestions, and possibly where to get the items. I bought a splitfire for it, but that did not do anything. I will try to get that bosch sparkplug if you could tell me what the number for it is. my friend told me that she drilled a hole through the exhaust baffles inside, but i dont know if that is a good thing to do or not. Thank you very much.
