About a 12km return trip to road test it...oh and also buy coke, chocolate, chips and a pie. Well it's rude not too when this place sells it all.

Cut and polished the 40 year old paint. Came up better than expected, but wont be winning best paint award at SEMA this year tho. Still, I'm happy with it.

You wouldn't happen to have a starter motor? Mine no longer works.

And just so the Yamaha doesn't feel left out.

It handled the 12km trip with ease. However I think I could probably walk faster up some of the bigger hills? And then downhill it hits some kind of limiter at 55km/hr and just won't push through it. Feels electrical like a speed limiter on the coil? Not sure? But the honda does 70+++ downhill, its right off the speedo.

Plus while apart, I cleaned out all the grease inside the brake drums with brake cleaner, then sanded everything to freshen it up. Brakes now work good. Success!!! Ending the day on a win...beer time now.

These aren't belt driven/don't have a variatior.

There's 2 clutches, first clutch engages to start moving, then the second one locks to engage second gear at about 30k.

Nope. I'm not sure how this one works, but it has chain driven gears that somehow gives it 2 speeds?

Funny...we both posted above at same time.

I'm of the opinion these are just slow motors, after doing a lot of geeking out online. Best way to go fast is do what everyone said to do at the start and find a Yamaha Jog motor. I didn't understand how scooters bolted together back then, now ivd had them apart a fee times, I can see it's not a big deal to do. Just keeping an eye out now for a crashed one.

That second clutch (on the right) is spun by the rear wheel through the final drive, so yeah X amount of road speed kicks the arms out and locks it into 2nd gear.

Your down hill limiter is likely to be from mechanical resistance rather than an electrical limit.

 

Depending how carried away you want to get I've got cases etc from a vertical Jog, with a bit of customising you can run Zuma (BWS?) cylinders and pipes etc.
