Happy holidays fellow motorcycle scooter enthusists i own a honda ch 150 and a manual that describes everything about it but i am having a hard time finding what the oil light on the digital dash is for? I have spent a couple hours looking threw the manual and i can not find it anywere i have a honda factory manual and wrote by the masters that built the bike i guess.
Any way on the digital dash there is a oil light i guess it shows green and red it was always on green now it is going back and forth from red to green and half way in between showing both colers. I do not no if i should ride it or not it has oil in it but i do not no why or what the light is apose to be for. Its a great scooter and i would hate to destory what i worked hard to get straighted out to work well all because the oil light is on and i do not no if the pump is working corectly if the oil just needs changed i don't know i believe that this scooter was ahead of its time and a great solid design i am trying to keep in the riden not hidden catigory if you pick up what i am putting down.
Any help would be apricaited thank you and ride safe.
The !985 honda elite runs great i am surprised how much power it has compared to my vino 125 it will out run it any day and got 22 years on it? ha ha. I ended up breaking a motor mount bolt on the swing arm so i got to get that welded and up for sale on chopping block i want a stella or a px.
Own a dr 350 now love it broke leg on it thinking about getting rid of it and buying a stella 2 stoke. Whatever happens with the dr i will get a new toy i looked for a long time for one and worked hard to get it. What i bummer i do not want to get rid of it i want to ride off road in mud but if breaking a bone keeps me away from something i love doing witch is riding it might be worth getting rid of i have yet to get hurt on a sco oter. knock on wood.
The dr 350 slings mud pretty nice happy with handling and power. Alot diffrent than a scoot but they both have there place. Kz i heard threw the grape vine you had a major delema with a scooter or something broke bad.
I have been out for a while sorry i have came across some vespa px and stellas there is one stella 2 stroke red for 1700 with over 200 miles very clean but out of my budget. I just noticed a px 200 in my neighborhood i have not got to talk to owner but talk to neighbor he seemed to think it had no title out of question for me.
I am looking for a dr 350 with electric start now before i by a stella or px unless i sell some of my scooters.
Thanks ally I am not sure about doing pictures I do not own a cell phone and do not know how to load them on computer. Probley most people would be surprised by that because children I have heard no how to do something so simple. Alley how would I know if motor mounts are destroyed try shaking the engine by hand when not running like a wheel bearing?
The wheel spins without the filter for about 1 minit until it warms up. Then it ideals fairly good stutters a little but doesn't stall.
The cvt is off and it does not spin untill you give it gas I think I will look at it again the cluth should pull away from the scooter when you give it throttle and when you let of should go toward wheel right?
Also you can give it gas when it is on the center stand and the wheel speeds up depending open how much throttle you give it.
But the problem ocures when scooter is on pavement it is like it does not like the preasure and the weight of moving the scooter it is like jerky jerky and bogs and will not go up in rpms it is a little better at less throttle but I really would not go much past the driway due to I do not want to break it from stupidity and knowing it aint right you know.
I own a digital camera I need to learn how to post picture online though I will make some effort tomarow and try to learn how to post pictures.
As for the picture of the carb I am not sure if it is the same all I know is there is a throttle adjust screw a screw on the bottom of the carb on the part above the bowl part. so air fuel screw?
Also it has an inlet and out let that hooks to the top of the carb to the pet cock. Also another weird thing I don't get and would like to know why they did this to the carb I don't understand at all is there is like a metal l with a a screw holding it on to the carb rad fluid > That I would like to know why the japs did that? Also when you take the top of it has like a bladder for the slide in the carb I thought that that was always hooked up to the throttle cable and went up and down when you twist the throttle?
Also does a pet cock gravity feed to carb? Why I ask when the tank is off and there is fluid in it it all stays in it doesn't come out of the pet cock.
