I have the castle gear, it was in place but I pulled it out to look at the teeth on the gear. However if I go for a short ride and turn it off, I have to empty the carb of gas before I can start it again. This seems to indicate that the starter is drawing current but not turning I didn't hear any sort of mechanical rotation. So I have my ride all sorted out with the motorized bike and I am just toying with this thing cause I have it basically, it truely was near curb bound recently. Right now I am just dipping my toe a bit and hoping I can get this starter s problem worked out to encourage me to move forward.
I feel like it's getting too much fuel in the carb, because every time I empty the bowl, a lot of gas comes out. What's the best way to bake it? Confirm by observing for fuel out the overflow if you rock the scooter from side-to side after it's been sitting awhile. If I can get that electric starter to spin I'm good to go, or at least to get going on the project. Inside things really didn't look that bad. So, baby steps on this one. I hear the carb burp when I rotate and a little gurgle from the belly on the other end of the stroke, but not a whole lot of resistance to me turnging it over by hand. Pulling the case cover isn't such a big deal, the bike cane still be rolled into a corner etc, once that back end is off there are gonna be parts everywhere I fear.
I've cleaned out everything I can, and pounded the piston down out of the cylinder with a sledge and a wooden closet pole, sanded the inside of the cylinder and the piston and replaced the rings, redone the carb, etc. These are very well designed machines, but they were always cheap and they were generally treated like crap by kids and adults who never spent a nickel on maintenance. If you download the manual it will give step by step instructions to remove the engine, and of course you can take lots of pictures as you go. What is it that's causing so much fuel to get in there but not enough air? You have to keep in mind that I have no idea what this bike went through before I ended up with it in this dead condition. The nice thing about my motorized bike is in Illinois it's pretty much looked upon and governed by the laws that apply to bicycles rather than scooters or motorcycles.
Just use a gentle hand. That could change rapidly as I famaliarize myself with it, or if I find a good tear down guide online to help me, I'd prefer to not go at it cold. That's hard to do hunched over. It shot flames like a blow torch from both ends for an hour or two there was so much junk in it half the weight when it was done. In the end you will probably be right, the bike will most likely get strpped down in all sorts of ways.
I need to find me one that works. . I was encouraged to see oil in the tank, but that could have gotten there after the kid burned it up too! I've cleaned the carb per the directions on this site. Also how do you check the reed valve? Please read our description and our privacy and policy page. This Service Manual contains comprehensive instructions and procedures of high quality on how to fix the problems in your car, which can save you a lot of time and help you to decide the best with ease. I need to get this starter off first, seems that would be much easier if the motor was loose.
Did you slide that engine out from under the scooter lak whut Ah dun tol' ya? I save up yogurt and cottage cheese cups, with the lids, and put the removed pieces in them, section by section. When I turn it the rear end rotates and I wasn't able to bust it, but I only had a tiny wrench. I am crossing my fingers that the problem s are the two failed starting mechanisms and not the motor. I thought it was the needle jet set 2 in the attached carb diagram but it looks different. Most of them are basically okay, with some minor issue that no one was willing to pay to repair. When I had a good car battery attached with bright tail lights shining, if I hit the start button I heard a click and the tail light would dim quite a bit. I am not completely apposed to pulling the motor and getting a better look at the whole thing, I am just a bit reluctant to do that because I am trying to clean the garage up a bit, not rip something apart and have it sprawled all over for god knows how long.
Is there a guide on the net anywhere that shows how to rip the motor off of one of these things? With the bowl off hold the carb up and very gently blow in the fuel inlet of the carb. I'm not even sure that I would go through and register the skooter myself if I get it running, what all do I need to be legal in Illinois? I finally found the two little areas where the cover has a tab that sticks out a bit which can be used to pound it loose. Are there any new ones I could use that aren't crap? The most complicated tool I used was a Dremel and a torque wrench. It makes you up-to-date and more knowledge. I'll sontimes turn the carb upside down and let the weight of the float close the needle valve that gives a good idea how it's going to work in with out having to feel it out. If that ground tooth is proper as pictured then I guess I am back to square 1 as to why the kick starter is jamming, in addition to why the electric starter isnt turning.
Some insects love to exhausts for nests. Inspection, Plates, Insurance, Helmet, Motorcycle license? I got it all apart except the motor mount bolt. I looked at it while the carb was out and didnt see anything that looked off. Removing the engine is easier than you think and makes working on the bits and pieces so much better on your back. Or maybe the pipe needs baking, check the intake as well for obstruction.
Here you can rent them from parts houses. The small tube on the carb vac? The castle gear looks like it is in good condition as well. Now after letting it sit for a few months, it won't start at all. In the process couple things popped up. While blowing very very lightly move the float up with your finger the air should stop flowing when the float goes level. I've been turning over the motor with the big gear, it turns very easily, even with the plug in it is turning very easily which is getting me kinda nirvous. I guess I need a new gasket for this left crankcase cover since this one ripped in a few spots during separation, any guidance on that would be appreciated.
