Bought the scooter. Now I have the questions

The cdi has 2 plugs in the back. Only one was plugged in. I have 2 potential candidates for plugging into the back. But they both look the same. So, which of the two do I plug in or do I not plug anything in at all?


Second question. The headlight isn't working. I changed the bulb out but that didn't make a difference. All the other lights on the scooter work. I can't figure out where the issue is.

Buy a circuit tester and work backwards from the headlight

Took the scooter out for its first out of city ride. A little over 20 miles, mostly on the highway. I was pretty impressed overall. On a couple of long hills the speed dropped to 53-54 mph. Max speed was 68 doing downhill behind a car. It cruised just under 65mph without any trouble.

I took the scooter out over my ktm 625...i think this will be a common theme this year.

I still haven't figured out what those two wires are or if they plug in to the cdi. I also noticed that my fuel gauge is totally off. I filled the tank up thinking I was on empty, it only took .75 gallons. And when I turned the bike on the gauge stopped at the half tank mark. So I Got figure that out...

A working fuel gauge? Come on now, no bike fuel gauge works well. Nice work on the scoot.

Began teaching my gf how to ride the scooter this weekend. Other than a few oh shit moments and crashing into the curb she did pretty well

Weather was nice this weekend and I had some free time. So I decided to do a little cleanup on the scoot. Ended up doing a fender elimination.

Although there doesn't seem to be any interest in this thread, and there probably isn't much reason to post. I don't have anything else to do right now.

Took the scooter out to the track for some mini moto racing. It was a HOT day, which meant that the track would be extra sticky and extra clear because of the wimps who stayed home.

I was racing against almost all 100's and while I didn't win any trophies, the scooter did pretty well.

I beat a few bikes off the line, but couldn't hold them off for more than a lap or two.



The bike handled as bad as you'd imagine, but I did manage to get my knee down one time through a left hander.



Dropped it once, on the very last lap of the day. Tried to get my knee down one more time, but couldn't (the kickstand was an issue) .

Epic! I've got a bid in on a salvage scooter myself.
