Re: Honda Elite 80 Not Starting

Mine turned over too but when I remote the cylinder the piston had a mountain of carbon top of it. You should just tear it down. There's no easy fix here.

Re: Honda Elite 80 Not Starting

Last time I saw one was because the scooter was filled up with gas with ethanol for way too long. These scooters predate ethanol and should be used on pure fuel it at all possible. The ethanol causes carbon buildup on top of the piston. The engine would turn but no way it would start. May be salvage...

Either your starter's gear is stripped or the engine is seized.

Re: Honda Elite 80 Not Starting

Did you read the maintenance manual? The fuel system on this scooter works by generating a vacuum ONLY WHEN IT IS RUNNING, which makes the petcock valve open and ONLY THEN do you get fuel to the carb. WTH is all that smoke? The starter appears to not even be engaging properly and turning over the en...

Re: Honda Elite 80 Not Starting

Literally working on nothing else tonight until I do the steps you guys have outlined. Will keep the forum updated. On a side note, why does everyone hate the Tao Tao or other branded Chinese made? Are they that shitty? And in your experience how likely are to buy a scooter/moped without paperwork?...

Re: Honda Elite 80 Not Starting

Take the carb apart, soak it with carb cleaner, run thin wires through all the orifices to make sure they are clear. Looks like one or more may have some old fuel varnish or something else blocking it.

Re: Need help wiring a flasher relay

Hey, I want to buy a 2 pin flasher relay for yamaha booster but it has no pin for ground and in a 3 pin flasher relay there is. I just want to ask if I can run a 2 pin flasher relay, or do I need to get a 3 pin? Thanks! :) That circuit does not need another ground, it already has the flasher ground...

Re: Need help with Honda '05 Reflex Electrical Problem

Ockham's Razor. Loose connection. And after 42 years in tech and aviation maintenance I can tell you with 100% certainty that some problems do fix themselves when you look at them the right way and strike fear in their hearts.

French Guiller HT22. But I think you already know that, since I believe you posted ads to sell it... Next time use Google Image Search. Works faster.

Actually, on scooters it is only supposed to crank when you hold either brake lever.

Re: Rear Wheel No Longer Vertical

I thought maybe the bolt came out but they are right, a welder should be able to fix that Not going to be cheap. If you look closely there are stress cracks all over that area. If the welder knows his work he will insist on doing a magnaflux test with liquid penetrant to uncover all the damage, and...
