Re: 6volt to 12volt conversion

I used to have a CV80 and found the 6v electrical system highly problematic (e.g. the headlight would dim when the blinker blinked) but instead of switching to 12V, I made it more efficient by using LED bulbs everywhere. I didn't switch everything (e.g. headlight) but I switched the blinkers, tail l...

Re: Blocking spam

Yes it's a very rewarding job. Once you block 100 spam posts you start getting pro deals from the OEMs including below cost scooters and parts :mrgreen:

Re: Blocking spam

Okay you should have mod permissions. Within each thread you can delete posts, or move topics that are in the wrong section, and then there is also the "moderator control panel" screen (link near top of page) where you can do moderator stuff. I use that to delete users if they make a bunch of spam p...

Re: Blocking spam

Sorry I've been busy lately and not too on the ball with the spam. Do you have any interest in deleting it? I'm happy to make you a mod if you want to do that.

Re: Forum members and guests.

Yeah the forum was down for a few weeks because I was forced to upgrade the software and basically that went poorly and crashed it. I'm no pro at forum software so it took me a while to figure it out. Obviously it's back up now, but that probably scared a few folks off. Things should pick up though ...

New PCX150 for 2019

Honda just unveiled a new generation of the PCX 150 for 2019. It's arriving in the USA in July. I've just written a big article on the MSG homepage (http://www.motorscooterguide.net) with all the info and more photos.

Re: Shop wants me to pay $2000 for a new engine after they bent my crank!!

Normally the stator is inside the flywheel. The stator is a bunch of wires, like an alternator, and then fly wheel has magnets inside that work in combination with the stator to generate electricity. Flywheel's virtually never have a problem since they are just a hunk of metal with magnets glued on,...

Sometimes the wire breaks inside the tubing, but most often it just becomes disconnected at one end or the other. It usually clips/snaps into place at the wheel, and screws into place...
