Re: Holy Speed

That's a Vino 50? Wow. That's awesome. Even 71km/hr is awesome. My Ruckus does about 65.

Re: Printer Manual Passwords

For everyone's reference, some of the manual PDFs were created quite a few years ago by ScooterTime.net, which is now non-existant. I have no idea what the passwords are, but there seems to be work arounds. It seems that the password issue only appears on older versions of Adobe software, so you can...

Re: New 2015 Yamaha SMAX 155

The new front end is nice. I like it. The previous front end styling was a bit cluttered.

I updated the TMAX page and the home page.

Re: New 2015 Yamaha SMAX 155

Geez....Yamaha is keeping me busy with all the new scooters news. Thanks for the info Tiny.

Nice to see the TMAX is back. Ever since they dropped it from the USA market a few years I've been expecting it to be cut from Canada.

New 2015 Yamaha SMAX 155

Yamaha recently announced a new mid sized machine, the SMAX 155. It's an entirely new design with some cool tech like closed loop F.I. and roller rocker arms. Looks like a pretty strong PCX competitor. I just finished a new article on it with all the info. http://www.motorscooterguide.net/Yamaha/XC1...

Nice to see you got it fixed. That cylinder damage was painful to look at.

Re: honda elite 80 rear wheel

You can usually get used rims pretty cheap on eBay. The Ruckus rim might fit on the spindle, but it's a wider rim - roughly 3" v 2" so it would likely have side clearance issues as it's designed for bigger tires. You'd have better luck trying rims from a small wheeled Honda 50cc scooter. To get it o...

Re: Honda Metropolitan temp light

Nice to hear you got it sorted. I've overheated a Ruckus (same motor) on a few occasions due to assorted mistakes and it's true that flicking the key off/on will avoid the engine going into limp mode for a few minutes. With air in the motor the coolant fails to cycle, so the coolant near the cylinde...

Re: Elite 80 start/run problems

It sounds like the carb needs some attention, more specifically the main jet in the carb may be gummed up. To look at this, remove the carb (kind of awkward in the Elite 80) and then remove the bowl off the bottom. Once the bottom is off, you can unscrew the brass jets. Hold them up to the light and...
