chris' scoot hoard

Recommended Posts

after watching the eastcapeescape vid I had to have a piece of that action. I saw this dio for cheap enough and grabbed it. Initially I thought I'd keep it stock and ride it but we all know that is a lie.

I've replaced the rollers and put some of aliexpress finest parts in

choice man! sooooo many opportunities for these things. im have an af18 in my nifty and after nothing but a chinga pinga variator and $8 cdi it does about 75kmh pretty easily. Raizer is the man to talk to about scooter tuning, $5-700 thrown at this thing and you will have it pulling sick wheelies and doing well over 100kmh.

if for some reason is goes nunga nunga on you i have 5-6 piston kits for one sitting on the parts shelf.

playing with scoots seems to be such a new dad hobby, especially down here with us penny pinchers, shits cheap as, you can achieve lots in 30min-1hr stints in the shed and rides get you away from whinging wives, win.

Fuck yeah. I've been talking to @Raizer and he has been giving me bad ideas.

Scoots are so good for progress/effort vs result. 

I'm trying to order a exhaust for it and have found heaps of sweet parts on yahoo japan but need some more $$ before I do anything else

yea id wait and just put money aside and then do heaps of cool shit at ones. The best barrel kits for these from all my research are the polini Corsa, which are about $300 for the barrel and piston kit etc. because of the mission of tuning these things your best to save up and do cylinder / carb& manifold  / exhaust all at ones, then tune your gearing to get it spot on.

I'm trying to keep it from snowballing lol. The plan is to do the exhaust and keep it 50 for now and do some cosmetic stuff

I saw someone had made a screwdriver handle key so I thought I'd do my take on that

@Raizer/nzscooter/grassman send up some goodies for me. It looks like someone has been there before, That might explain the high rev miss/"limiter"

replaced the clutch springs and the clutch now slips so I'll get a replacement at some point. I've got a replacement carb on the way along with some fork seals

Nothing like a nice night in...

I've sorted the clutch as much as I can for now. @Raizer said to try give it a sand & de-grease. It actually grips now which is good.

I started swapping the carbs over so I can actually rejet it. Turns out my return spring is too big and a pen spring is too small so I'll try hunt a spring down tomorrow

I gave the airbox a bit of a tickle with the holesaw too, you can see the stock hose inlet thing on the top

West pest was such a good time I need to get another bike. As everyone likes taking bikes where they shouldn't I'm looking for some forks with longer travel 

or preferably a scoot that needs a re power

I gave the carb a clean out and needed to test the oil cooling system. I managed 4th with lifting the back up. Video is slowly uploading

For the price of a slap of piss and some winieblues I acquired another dio. Its been sitting for a while but fired up nicely after giving the carb a clean. installed a little bit of low and made some clouds. I thought the brakes on the black dio were ok but compared to the drums they are amazing. I've got some aliexpress stuff coming to hopefully sort that

And then there were 2 and a half

It only took a few hours to upload this....

I swapped the high speed variator over too and got 67 on a closed road. It was 4 stroking so I'll drop a jet size or two and try again

I know its on the wrong side but this is what the copper cock is for. Turned out a bit bigger than I expected. I'll get some more clear coat and figure out mounting it after nats

@Raizer is a gc and brought up some bits and pieces for me on his trip up. A filter and exhaust and a disc front

I gave the carb a clean out and chucked a bigger jet in. Quick test ride and I need to unslam it.
