Sweet! Looked like a little bit of everything! I see lots of Dio's, some yammi's, some Chinese scoots, I think I saw an Adly Thunderbike?? What are those other scoots at the 32 second mark? Are those Jogs? The newer ones?
Those are SYM DD50's. They run the Dio engine, same as my Arnada. There was one Rexy which has a zuma clone engine with a 94 evo but he was broke down. The Adly was the oddball and a bike I got for my Dad for only $160. There was one stretched Metropolitan, and one Zuma 125. All the rest were honda elite's ( one aero) maybe a pal in there somewhere. But all run the same vertical Dio 2-stroke engine. Dats Hawaii guys. They only like Honda scooters (or mopeds with dio type engine's) or Toyota trucks 4 life.
I drilled a hole in my stem to insert a threaded cross dowel. That way I could bolt the top cap, on my mountain bike stem clamp, to the stem. This would prevent it from lifting off if the clamp failed.
The top hole was a pilot hole that I didn't get centered. I tried to drill straight through by hand, and it didn't work. I don't have a drill press. The bottom hole I measured from the top of the stem on both (180 degree) sides, and drilled 2 different holes. I then drilled straight through and they were lined up perfectly. I then used every drill bit I had to progressively open up the hole to fit the cross dowel.
So I need a 2 inch longer braided brake line and a straight adapter (to my brake line) instead of a 90 degree banjo. This will allow NO RUBBING, like I've got now. Parts are ordered. Hopefully they'll be here in a week.
Finally got the disc brakes all dialed in and working great! Slapped the 68cc block back in, and she's running better that ever. I upped the main jet to 130, while raising the needle to the middle notch. I went down 2 grams in the variator; to 28. I hit 64 today, thats the Fastest, I think, ever.
Its coming, just had to make sure the disc brake system was all set up. I have a polaris 90 block that Im going to use the 54cc aluminum on. I'll ride the 68 while I'm building the 54. I need to pull apart an eton block to get the alignment dowel. The one, on the Polaris block I have, got damaged in shipping. Then I'll drop it off with my scooter Guru for porting/matching. He said he's learned something new on the jog engines, so I can't wait. I have a few busy weeks at work, so…I'll have to wait
Can't get out the bushing from my motor mount though. I tried using a chisel and a hammer and it wouldn't budge. I hit it pretty hard, several times, all around. I set it aside for a day and tried again. I even notched it with a dremel and a cutting wheel to get a good bite, and it still won't move. I was thinking of trying to thread a pipe in there and making some sort of slide hammer to get it out. I'm at a loss at this point. Any suggestions?
I'm almost ready to buy another block. Could I use the existing bushings on a Polaris 90 to mount it to my scooter? The engine hanger bolt fits in the polaris bushings. I guess my question is; will a rubber bushing that is glued to the outer ring, sustain the lateral force generated by hauling ass through turns? I could easily make spacers to set it up straight. Any thoughts on this?
