Re: Honda Elite 150D Headlight won't close

After going through this again, and replacing the headlight motor with a known good one, and upgrading my DMM to one that is more accurate (Fluke 114) I have found that my timer unit is not passing muster IAW the tech manual's specs. Does anyone have a source on one of these, my google-fu is coming ...

I have the service manual and have used it for most every issue this scooter has thrown at me so far, but i can't tell what is causing this issue. I have not changed the emergency knob ye...

Re: Honda Elite 150D Headlight won't close

I don't understand.

What does the emergency knob do that is keeping the light up when the key is turned off?

Honda Elite 150D Headlight won't close

I've been able to clean up and verify the operation of the pop-up headlight on my 86 Elite 150D, mostly. When I turn the key on the light will pop up as it is supposed to and work great. When I turn the key off the light does not move. If I slightly turn the emergency knob, the motor will engage and...

WTB: Honda Elite 150 deluxe handlebar controls

I have an 86 Honda Elite 150D with a bad starter switch.

If anyone is parting out a deluxe (the controls are different than a non-deluxe) I would be interested in the right side setup.

Also, always interested in a good set of rear turn signals for the same scooter.

Thanks!

Re: 86 Elite 150 Deluxe digital Speedo issue. Upon start it cycles

What would cause nothing to show on the digital speedometer? When I cycle the key on, I can tell the backlight is coming on, but I never get anything on the display. This is on a 1986 elite deluxe. I purchased another instrument cluster on ebay from an 84 and swapped only the digital speedometer int...

Re: 86 Elite 150 Deluxe digital Speedo issue. Upon start it cycles

Good information about the digital speedometer. I am slowly repairing all the POs "creative" wiring on my 86 150D and also have a non-functioning speedometer (with functioning odometer/trip meter). Mine will partially light up when the key is turned on, but looks to have that "smashed LCD" look towa...
