GOOD NEWS!

New grips and new headlight! This scoot is getting more epic by the day!

Old Grip


New Grip


I got this rad little light off of ebay from china. It was only $8. It is super bright so those damn cars can see me coming. It turns off when I turn it to high beam, which is cool, like a little switch. But I might get a matching one and have them set at different angles for a high and low beam. Does anyone know if these lights are legal?



Can you give a link to this light?

These shocks made the ride SO much better. The taller shocks make such a difference (12.5" vs 11.5"). They might be a little stiff but I just put them on so I'll wait a bit then maybe try tinkering around with them. All in all its way more fun then it was with my old pogo stick shocks.

Here's the ebay listing I bought. $80, can't complain.

Jealous of your grips, I wanna find some new ones sometime soon.

Also I think a new front brake lever would be sweet. A nice anodized blue one or something.
What size tire are you running?

Cool2

I just purchased a 1987 Honda Elite CH150 with 2500 miles. Very clean and rode great. The gas was sitting for a while so I topped it off and added seafoam. I was riding all day on Saturday and it was running perfect. I went to start it on Sunday and it didnt start at all. I put a little gas into the carb and it would start up and then die almost instantly. Is there anything that you guys suggest I should do to it? I am not the most motor oriented dude but I know some stuff and am willing to experiment as well. Thank you to all who respond to this. The advice is much appreciated!!

Most likely your slow jet is clogged. I recommend you remove and clean your carb, running a small strand of copper wire through the slow jet. Unscrew the bottom of the fuel tank and replace the filter. I have been through this with a CH125 but mine sat for 17 years and I had to clean out the fuel tank and replace a few items.

Sometimes you need a new gas cap if it is the vented kind. Do you plan to leave the coachwork off?

So??? I've gotta know... how'd it all come together brycekauai?! :)
I've come to restoring my old '87 now and found this thread.... thanks for documenting your journey so well, very exciting and inspirational! But now we gotta know if you left her all a skelter.... or if you added anything else. Still running good? :)
