Re: Engine Rebuild Kit

"Rebuild kit" is too vague. Do you mean something like this top end kit? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Athena-Top-End ... 3756214208

Re: 1984 Honda Aero 125

I don't have time to go searching for random posts or for part numbers on motorcycles about which I have no interest. You need to take it to a mechanic who knows what he/she is doing. He will then tell you what size piston you need.

Re: 1984 Honda Aero 125

Can you explain why exactly did you buy a piston for an engine with twice the displacement without any idea if it will fit (which it likely will be too big)?

Re: 1986 Honda Aero

Stuff happens. These scooters are not meant to be run on fuel with ethanol. That causes carbon buildup that can lead to this. It is dirt simple to remove ethanol from your fuel, just add water, shake and wait for it to separate, then siphon off the ethanol at the bottom. Look it up on Google, there ...

Ah-yup. That'll put a kink on the scooter's ride.

Re: 1986 Honda Aero

Check the bystarter (automatic choke).

Re: 1998 Yamaha Riva 125cc WONT START

That battery sounds weak. Have you charged it? Could also be a bad bystarter or what they call an "autochoke". When those go, it becomes very hard to start the scooter.

Re: 1998 Yamaha Riva 125cc WONT START

you forgot to check the one thing that appears to be missing and needed for combustion -- air. Check for a clogged air filter.

Re: scooter wont run

If you parked it for 6 months without first draining all fuel or putting in a fuel stabilizer in the tank you likely have stale fuel varnished in the carb. Most likely thoroughly cleaning the carb, with emphasis on the bowl, may fix the problem.

no, just a spark plug socket, a ratchet wrench and maybe a small extension.

Re: Tips for removing spark plug on 2020 Honda Metropolitan

There are at least three videos on YouTube on how to do that. You do not remote the center cover for this.

Re: 87' Aero 50 CVT Slipping / Grabbing

Nicely done. These variators are simple devices. Its not hard finding parts, and you should always consider upgrading things that have been reeingeneered, like the weights. As i said when you first posted, nothing beats just taking it apart, especially when service manuals are available. Congrats. N...

Re: Where do you buy parts? (Metropolitan)

The website you suggest is crazy overpriced. And in Euros. Pass and pass. You asked for affordable, not cheap, and euro <-> dollar conversion is child's play. The scooter you own is Japanese, not Chinese. That said, if you ask Google for "honda scooter parts atlanta" it will give you what you seek....
