I was once told that you could actually use a standard cab on this bike. IE a generic cab would bolt up and work just as good as the original. I never replaced the carb on mine (just kept cleaning it) so I don't know if this is, still, true or not.Something to look into anyway.
As far as charging it I used to use a small bolt that would "plug" into the red wire alowing me to attach the charger.Sorry forgot that part in my last post.
The key to getting a good 6v charger is look for "trickle" charge written on the package. I believe a "trickle" charge is 0.2~0.6 amps. Mine also has a 2 amp setting for a "quick" charge (8 Hours) if you can call that quick in a world where 5 minutes in line at Wal-Mart feels like an eternity.
Ok from the sounds of it we are reading from the same book Danny, but from different ends. Here is the Short Short version of the bookShort term, Gas is better then empty (1day-1month max) Keeps water outLong term, Clean and Dry is best, or drygas/stable if can't dry. (1month or more)Although if you live where it never gets cold (unlike here) you can drive it every day and never worry one way
A motor need 3 things to run. Air, Gas, Spark.If you have checked that air intake and found it to be clean then you should be getting air. CHECKYou cleaned the carb and check it for proper flow before putting it back on the motor, right. Then you are getting gas (assuming the tank isn't empty) CHECKThe only thing left is spark. Go down to your local sears and ask for a spark tester. They shou
Danny I agree with you on the petcock being that prime and on are the same.Although I disagree with "and let it run out of gas on it’s own". This is not only bad for the motor (from what I have been told by my mechanic every time I run out of gas, and he comes to the rescue). It is actually worse to leave the carburetor empty of gas. Gas by its nature repels water, leaving gas
I used to have a FA50, and found that if your battery was in poor condition it would cause all kinds of havoc on anything electrical. I personally keep blowing headlights ($40 a pop at the time) but I did run into a occasion when the turn signals wouldn't blink. Found out my battery was dead, flat, gonzo. Charging it to a good healthy 6V did the trick.Yes I said 6V, If I remember correctly th
Just wanted to put this correction out there. Voltage won't kill you! It's the amps that matter. I see a lot of people make this mistake, and as an electrician I cringe every time I hear/see it.Less then one amp across your heart can kill you instantly however 13000 volts won't do a thing to you if it's amperage is low enough.This is why we have people that can work on live Hi
I have to agree with other Andy. What's the point if you look like everyone else.One of the reasons I picked this up: (hope the image link works, fist time trying it.)!imageurel!http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/1518/dsci0037jz8.th.jpg
Hehehe. I am a horrible person, I just pretend that I am mental handicap. That usually causes people to apologize. I even have some that wanted to tear my head off honk and wave when they go by now.
Dude add .jpg after the file names so everyone can see themI have done it for you this time.

I also road to work today (well most of the way)I found one corner that still had snow/ice on it and managed a superman on my stomach once the tires lost grip and disappeared from under me :)No one was hurt and the bike is fine, Looking back, it was kind of fun. Wish I had been able to catch that on film. only problem was that I busted my cell phone, oh well that
WOW great find!!!!Those are perfect, man I would kill for one of those, but my wife would kill me so it would be a loose loose situation.BigM
Ok using that equation then: Mo(tor) + (foot)Peg(s) = Mopeg!! Not noped.You guys can't keep changing the formula or it won't be scientific fact, just a theory!BigMGO MOPEG's
Yes, if you run the blinkers without a battery they will not work at all and you could and will ruin stuff with the current draw.Bikes without batteries have been known to blow bulbs due to driving to fast which then causes the mag to make more power then the lights can use. This doesn
Amps don't really matter because the light will never draw more amps then it can use. Find the biggest 6V battery you can find (look for rechargeable) and retro fit it in there some how.You can also (if you dare) hook this into the bike wiring system (assuming it is 6V as I think 90% are) along with a small rechargeable 6V battery. This will allow the light to be full strength even when bike
Really, did we need to go back there?BigM>PS I am a follower of the teachings for anyone that cares.
Is your car plastic??Ok I don't know about down south, but up here in the frozen wasteland (ok just northern Maine) some of our lights are actually motion sensitive.I saw one guy (on large Harley) stopped at one and he started waving at the light, then it turned. Amused I started asking around. Found out that motorcycles (and mopeds) are two small to be seen by the motion detectors (they don&

The blinkers won't work without a battery because the generator on that bike doesn
Oh and make sure you have a good battery (6V system on that bike) in your FA50!!!I keep blowing headlights ($50 a pop at the time) because I had my battery give up on me without me knowing about it.BigM
Now my wife has seen this she has refused to ride with me unless I get her a pink one.LOLSo anyone that
If you have a copy of your vin#'s (all bike owners should) I would go to this guys house and ask to look at them (nicely, as if your interested in buying them) if you find the #'s match then you have every legal right to take (rightful) possession of them buy any means necessary!(ie if he tries and stop you, you can forcibly move him out of the way)and IF he threatens to call the cops ha
they don't have a chain, they are gear driven, and if you so much as get a pebel in the gears your going no where fast.had one of my teeth lose a tip and get caught in the gears and I couldn't ride until I took it apart and found the problem.Great fun to ride though!
Want to thank you again for the wheels/ride.BTW do you have any Business cards you could send me to hand out to people this summer when they ask where I got it.Mike
I have been ridding a jialing (4 stroke) scooter back and forth to work (in the summer months) and have yet to have any mechanical problems.I will say that who ever puts these things together must be weaker then my dead grandmother, almost every bolt/screw I have found so far was lose. I went through and retightened everything. (I did have a few missing parts but after contacting the seller they
