So did you end up figuring everything out ? Now that you know your pretty much an expert maybe you could shed some light on my current situation.So i had noticed the same thing with the actual wire colors that are on my fz50 and the manuals colors. I thought that someone must of had to swap the harness for some reason. The problem that I am currently dealing with is trying to install an aftermarke
By chance does anyone have a good condition MLM sidebleed for my urban express. At this point buying brand new doesnt seem to be in my broke dick budget. hit me up if you do !
So did you ever mess around with decarbing the exhaust? I just picked the same bike and it was running but i rebuilt the carb and now i cant get it to fire. It was running but was pissing fuel because the float wasnt floating. Its got spark, its got compression and i can sometimes get it to fire with carb cleaner but still no dice. The bike is only got 620 miles on it and is in pretty great shape
This thing looks pretty dope. Im new to the game and have never seen one before. Guy says it was restored from ground up.
So i finally got things figured out. It took me forever but i finally bought a multimeter and started to test everything. The right hand brake switch is shot but the left was good. as soon is is disconnected the right hand brake from the circuit and tried to use the left hand brake the brake light worked. So that right had brake was causing the the entire issue. I don't quite understand much
Does anyone know where i can find a bolt on throttle cable that's not OEM? Rlghtnlw we are only working with ebay type money unfortunatly. I am finallygetting around to getting this thing going and i'm going to need all the tips i can find. The one on treats i cnn tell if it will work
So does anyone know of suitable replacement for the OEM saddle bags or hell even the front basket? Everything i found is ridiculous and people selling OEM are smoking crack with the prices they have listed. All i need is it to work and look decent. OEM not necessary at all.
Tricky tricky. I figured this could of been done easily i knew i should of given it a try.\
Now that finally bought my girlfriend an 80 express i am going to see everthing under the sun BUT YELLOW. I wonder what that would cost to ship to orlando...
What does the set up consist of ? I am thinking of kitting one of mine, still not real sure. Also where do i find auctions like that ! can i ask what you ended up paying for it at auction?
So this is what I found underneath the seat and coil/condenser. Looks like the the ground was spliced together? Haven't found a multi meter yet unfortunately. I guess I'm going to chase it into headlight and see what's going on a bit closer
Yes sir, found them pretty easily. Cleaned the connections best I could and no change. However I did try and reverse the brake grn/yellow wire and brown wire to see if there was a mix up and the light powered on still but brake light still didn't work
So the wiring goes under the tank and into the bottom of the seat. right before it heads into the seat all of the wires are wrapped real well with electrical tape or something until it meets another taped bundle of wires and joins them. I havent yet peeled it all back and figured out whats going there but i will by the end of the day. Ill keep you posted to what i find.
As of now it guess its running, but kind of rough. It had sat for a year before the other day. Odo says 600 miles on it and i was told that its all original. Ive got a 78 express now but ive heard that with a little tuning those things rip. I plan on keeping it either way i just like to get an idea of its potential value. It helps me always keep things in good shape and what not lol.
This is an article driving me crazy as far as I can tell it looks like both philonous are fine. Trace the wiring back into the and it looks fine on the other end headlight it also looks all right. I've got a brand new bulb somewhere I just have got to find it just in case. I'm going to have to examine assembly very closely I guess
How can i quickly tell which model im looking at? Its a 78 eggplant totally stock as far as i can tell but i wont see it in person until tomorrow. Honestly im new to the game and really dont know anything about maxi's. Does the hi torque really improve acceleration that much ? Does that change the value?
ive never used one but i think i could handle it if need be.
I topped off the cells and currently i am charging it just in case. That said i have everything working except the brake lights. Running lights work as they should once i turn the key but nada when i hit the brakes.
So i actually just got almost everything functioning properly minus the actual brake light. The tail light works once i turn the key but nothing happens when i hit the brakes. The bulb is good i just checked the filament. Currently charging the battery for kicks.
Ive been battling with getting my tail light and brake light working since i picked this thing up. So i guess ill start from the beginning, of course when i picked up the bike it was running just fine but all of the light were blown out. I figured ok ill just go buy a new battery and replace the light bulbs easy! Shouldnt take long and wont be to expensive...needless to say here i am.i replaced th
Few weeks back i drove 160 miles round trip for a 25 dollar non running totally complete fa50 that i havent had a chanc to really take a look at. Recently ive been really tempted to drive into Georgia from central florida for a few nice nopeds ive seen out there but havent yet found the one that pulls my soul yet.
This happened to me tonight. I found a 78 express running totally original, im talking airbox everything. 300 bucks! Go figure the only day i didnt have extra cash on me that i coyuld justify spending on a whim... Bummed still
So ive got a 84 FA50 that is in pretty good shape with 1500 miles on it but doesnt run. I was going to try and get her going but i dont think i have got the time now. I guess the plan is to offer it as a parts bike or project but i have no idea what to ask for it. Anyone have any idea what i should ask and what i should reasonably expect? I am hoping to use the funds to roll into the purchase of a
