Learned this one after waitin about a week for a new cable: Loosen the cable at the wheel hub and turn it back and forth, if no resistance probably broken. In my case the super light grease in the hub allowed the speedo gears to jump out of place. Good grease and reallignment of the gears got me back on the road.
Wow you have been having a B of a time, glad it is getting better for you but sorry you have to go through this stuff. Getting older sucks, but its better than the alternative. Mrs. N. reminds me all the time ( " Your not 16 anymore"), Alway's I'd be happy to be 60 again rofl. Seat Fix:Had the same problem on the Wildfire and was able to fix it by heating the seat part and changing the angle, using a vise so not to burn anything, (lol including fingers, as a first step. I then fiddled with the bolts holding the actual latch in place repositioning it a little further foreward to match the new seat bend contour. It has been fine since then.
the rear tire became severely worn after only five thousand miles of use and failed," the suit states.
At what point did the owner notice the tire was severely worn? I don't know about you but I know what shape my tire is in and it's in need of changing before the season's out. Part of owning anything on wheels is knowing what shape your tire is in. If you can describe it as "severely worn" and you still ride or drive on it you're only begging for trouble.
As I said to my infant stepson years ago, "If you go looking for trouble and you find it don't come crying to me
People and tires are idiots. Had a woman last week that wanted to replace a bald tire, (legally by DOT standards all of her tires were bald), but she was worried about the one showing cords from bad allignment!
Work at walley world in the auto section and this happened yesterday. Harley idiot was upset because we do not stock 50 weight oil or the oil filter for his Harley! Seems oil and filter cost about 8 bucks more from Harley than our average prices for oil and filter. Go Figure guy has a 20K bike and was whining about 8 bucks!! Yes I was nice to him but all the time I was helping him I was thinking, " IDIOT"
Since you are having loose things maby you should re do your post delivery inspection. When I did mine the grease in the rear was green slime and the engine oil was ugh too. I agree with Sprocket on break in, I used the ride it and cool down for my 150 and it runs great. Final thing was 150 valves tightened up too much at 400 Km/Miles , so be ready to adjust soon.
Right track with your thoughts. You can not realize the ride quality and limitations of a 50 just compared to a 150, let alone your bigger bike. Example: Mountain road I rode 1 time on my Wildfire 49Cc50 was so bad,, but not a problem on the JCL150 because tires brakes and shocks are just that much better.
I have no choice and am going to end up with a 2300$ 49Cc. Ice Bear Trike before its over. Can't sell it on a C.O. so Ive got to go with it, or part it out or take a real bath. . Still can't believe that it will take 8 weeks but thats life! Lots of $ for 49Cc but thats what it is and it was the first bike bought because she thought it was cute! THe best part is the Police are letting 49Cc slide with no tags but since it is a trike it will be noticed so its got to be done. Also going to have to mod it a little to be able to do an honest 40 MPH since so many roads here are 40 or 45.
CC. We just delivered a new E bike that a cutomer ordered through the company and I took a good look, small electric motor pedals, no lights, horn, signals, nothing, now Im waiting for it to come back because the owner got stopped. I understand all of the Pa situation because I have looked into it in depth. Went to the local Honda shop to look and all of their bikes have the data visible just as Pa wants. The really interesting thing is all the Hondas had an additional $330.00 listed to the price sheets for getting tagged in Pa, so honda is getting the same treatment although they have complied. I talked to the owner of the shop and he just gets the paperwork done as soon as stock comes in so that he can move units without a delay.I think I will just move the data plates to the visible part of the bikes and go through with it although the Mrs. is done with it and wants the trike gone says she wont ride it now because she doesnt need harrassed by the local cops. Have I mentioned that I was told I will not be able to get my 150 JCL tagged in Pa. in spite of it being tagged in another state because the seller did not pay the fees Pa. wants and pa does a check to determine who the seller is? I called the seller and it was explained Pa. wanted 350K to allow the seller to be a vendor in Pa. Long and short is I have a 150 that I supposedly can not get tagged in Pa. even though it was sold legally where I was but Pa. wont allow it here. Just typical Pa.
I would check with somebody else in DMV about the data thing. My former Honda Big Ruckus had the plate on one of the downtubes. I'm betting the Honda Reflex has it under the seat or someplace accessible. I'd like to see a Cop read it on the steering head of a Burgman, T-Max or Silver Wing which are in abundance in PA.
Dont have to check with the dmv. Its in print, online. Even better one I read is Pa considers bkcyckes with an electric motor as a moped since it isw a power assisted bike, although electric, this is insane!!
