I know you all have probably seen it , but its fun to watch on a cold day .
You have a bike that will not run or not running properly .After checking fuel supply , spark , and compression , you decide to check the points and timing .If your timing will not set properly after setting the points to the correct open measurement ( + - .016) and you can get the bike to run with the points almost closed (.010 or less) and the stator plate set to fully retard the timing , the
When checking electrical issues , a 6/12 volt battery charger and a multi meter is your best friend .Multi-meter can check continuity of wires and bulbs , resistance values of coils , and a good capacitance meter can check a condenser .The battery charger can be used in place of starting the engine to check wires , switches , grounds , and lamps .In tandem , you can find most electrical issues in
He must think he’s wheel funny.Cops in Australia are searching for a man caught on video using the spinning tires of an electric bike to draw male genitalia on a sidewalk in Perth.Security footage released by police shows a middle-aged man dressed business casual in jeans, a white button-down and sport coat as he holds the back wheel of the bike above one of his compositions.The artist’s impressio
How to straighten a pedal shaft . Hope the video link works .https://www.facebook.com/messenger_media/?thread_id=100014346544444&attachment_id=580489092795075&message_id=mid.%24cAABa9gwmsGl8mO2PGF2Z6hCTkYIg
Graham , that does sound plausible .
Did not measure the piston to skirt clearance . .
I have no cause to argue your points , but I did find out the probable the causes of wear.I was talking to a shop owner who has sold mopeds for 50 years.He said that its the piston skirt wobble that causes the lower cylinder wear.My theory on whether the fuel charge doesn't get to the upper is just that , a theory.Either way , We have twice measured the wear with our micrometers and after in
This is number one in a series of tips that have taken years of serious moped meddling to figure out. I will slowly disperse them in this thread .If you have a vespa that will not run ,but seems to have compression , spark , and fuel , remove the cylinder and check the piston ring end gap. If it is larger than .012 on the lower end near the transfer ports the cylinder is worn out.We have found sev
You should get off this forum and join hara-kiri .comOnly problem is that there not many second posts.
Now i understand .In this case DC is floated although I'm still not sure why it matters.
At some point all the ac goes back to one chassis common point .There is never a true grounded system on a wheeled vehicle , but if i understand your question , it is not floated.Why would this matter?
Have you done the conversion ?We started doing them with sealed beams and those dumb festoon lamps .We would break out the old lamp, drill the metal a bit to fit the new lamp, and put a slimmer regular or halogen lamp in to save $20-$50 on a sealed beam and make the lamp replaceable .Those Honda motorcycle headlights are expensive.Some times you have to epoxy the new lamp and socket in . .Depends
Here is the rectifier. I can't find the lamps right now. The one I used was from a previous order.https://www.ebay.com/itm/2x-50A-1000V-Metal-Case-Single-Phases-Diode-Bridge-Rectifier-KBPC5010-BPHH/303636999659
el pollo , I forgot about all that nonsense .It took me a long time to learn how to do this a simple way that i could explain it to other people .It clicked the first time I did the LED headlight lamp on a ct-90 and didn't need the rectifier because the bike already has one to support the battery turn signals.Basically , it was already DC.Its easy, AC in DC out .The capacitor is there to prev
There are 2 easy solutions for that . Start with a 12 volt lamp , which will take a lot higher voltage than 14.4 or go with the capacitor setup.The 12 volt LED lamps are cheaper too.I have now done 3 of these conversions with no issues at all.It sure beats trying to replace sealed beam headlights at $25-$50 a pop.I may try to mount the rectifier near the stator so the tail light will be LED also
Here is an inexpensive way to make an LED conversion on almost any moped , scooter or motorcycle. Any decent H7 LED lamp can be used although depending on your AC voltage , a 6 volt lamp may be brighter. The 50A 1000v diode bridge rectifiers can be had almost anywhere for $2 . The diagrams show the AC input and the DC output to the light . This means less or no pulsing with voltage changes and the
I wonder if the motor uses detergent oil?
Ebikes are hot right now. Corona virus lock down measures have spurred people to find socially distanced forms of transport and many are choosing bicycles. Sales are soaring, and in some places supply is hard to come by.So what do you do if you can’t get hold of one? Sabotage your washing machine to build your own ebike, of course!That’s what one enterprising home-engineer did recently, and yes, t
See if you can find the movie/tv show this moped was driven in .
Its been for sale for over 2 years. The price floats between $1600 and $2400 depending which ad.Spoke with her via the net. Pretty stubborn about it.It is a nice $800 bike.
Would you buy this one ?P.M. for details
It is called a clutch basket bushing and comes in 9.6mm and 10.2mm .No , you can not buy one off the shelf.Call treats and see if they will have one from a damaged crank.I doubt it . It would be almost impossible to press one off without damaging it.Get a new crank and be done.
I have a complete Jawa Supreme frame and a lot of Jawa parts if you want to go back to original .
I know, but i have been successful adjusting the square bings (twice) so they don't leak anymore. A tiny bit of adjustment can solve the leaky bing syndrome.In this case its probably not the float, but i thought i would include it so other advanced moped guys like you who read this would be able to stop one from leaking when sitting.Its always a good idea to pull the float pin and clean the n
Buy or find a stock airbox .https://www.treatland.tv/complete-stock-SACHS-square-airbox-p/complete-stock-sachs-airbox.htmThen clean the jet, scrape the float bowl clean , and re-set the float height even though the manual says that it is not adjustable . Flip the carb over and make sure it is level with the body.If it is , leave it alone.That will solve the stalling .The carb is getting too lean
