I bought a 1983 Honda Aero 50. Basically, since the battery is dead, it will kick-start, but if cold, only after pulling a wheelie with the bike and holding it there for 10-15 seconds and then putting it down. After warmed up it runs fine and re-starts easily. I have little to no experience/ knowledge about engines.
1. could anyone give me a reasonable ballpark price it might cost to have a mechanic at the local Honda motorcycle/ scooter dealership tune up/ clean up the engine that already runs but is old and has trouble starting.
2. are there any good resources about how to fix/ maintain moped engines with diagrams and explainations of how things work? i am very eager to learn and would love to be able to do it myself.
Thanks for your advice.
