  1. There's a lot that could be going on here. Best to walk through it step by step. - Check the condition of wires on stator. Any signs of rubbing, pinched wires, or shorts (scorching)? -Ensure points are operating properly -- test with bulb or voltage meter. - Is the flywheel properly mounted and torqued down? - Is the Stator properly grounded? - Is the engine properly grounded? - Do you have power from the stator to the coil? Check with bulb or voltmeter. -Swap to a different spark plug and re-test. -Swap Condenser and retest -- I've had no end of trouble with new condensers that are bad.
  2. ^^^^ I couldn't agree more. Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines -- All have crazy awesome DIY scooter stuff being done.
  3. Mike, you've got this one. Thanks K-Dog for doing these!
  4. 'Gonna call this one shortly. Surely there's more to be said about this lad and his tastefully decorated steed?
  5. If that fails try swapping out the condenser. (Assuming it's a points system.)
  6. Awesome! Thanks K-Dog and Pete!
  7. Thanks for posting this. If I were a young guy just starting out in life I would move to Southeast Asia. Amazing place.
  8. The great rubber shortage of Feb 1960.
  9. I'm going to give this one to KCJet. Thanks for the laughs everybody!
  10. There's room for two.....
  11. Thanks Mike for heads up on this. I've ordered a couple of the MBD ones. Summer's just started here -- The proper fix can wait until we're buried under snow again.
  12. Sweet! Thanks K-Dog!
  13. Hi all, I was noticing some clutch drag earlier today and when I went to check the play at the lever I noticed a fair bit of slop in the lever play. The hole in the perch that holds the level is ovaled resulting in reduced levering action. Upon checking my parts bin I find that a spare one I have is also badly ovaled. Is there any preferred method for fixing this? My first thought was to get it tig welded and redrilled. Is this a bad idea or is there a better way? Thanks!
