There was no chain with the bike yet, and I bought the one recommended for the 3" over swingarm thinking that even if I decided not to stretch it I could always cut it down. For some reason they were all pretty much the same price from 85 to 120 link.

I had thought I would. Not too much area in my neighborhood where I'd feel ok to ride without harassment otherwise. Where is the lot exactly, and how often do you guys get together?

Just placed an order for (what I hope is) the last of the parts I need to get it running.

I got my swing arm marked to cut for the 3" stretch, but got side-tracked building a tool before I could get anywhere working on it:
10413234 1423895264562274 1916669749 n
I guess I should've warned them that I was taking a picture. They weren't happy that they didn't get to be out while I was cutting, grinding and welding, but did seem genuinely interested in getting to help build something. Fun Father's Day activity.

Old total : $740.41
Parts on the way
Motion Pro clutch perch/lever: $14.10
Motion Pro brake perch/lever: $14.10
Motion Pro 7/8" throttle tube and housing: $15.50
38mm Uni air filter: $14.07
cheap keyed ignition: $5.01

Running Total: $803.19

Spent some time playing with the bike this weekend, so fuel line, air filter, and throttle cable are hooked up to the carb. I got my front brake cable hooked up and the rear drum is soaking in some pb blaster to hopefully free up the little eccentric splined shaft that pushes on the pads.

I'm going to start cutting/welding the foot peg mount this evening to see if I can widen it by a few inches to clear the wider engine, and if all goes well I might even finally decide to cut the swing arm for the 3" extension I want to do. Not entirely sure on that yet though.

We just inherited a 1982 Z50R for my 7 y/o son. It's not running and needs some work like yours. Good luck on the rebuild.

Well, not sure if I did something wrong, or just going about it wrong.

Having some difficulty getting started up for the first time. Rather than wire in a "kill" switch, I hooked up a keyed switch. Found the two wires that get continuity with the key "on", and hooked them up to the kill switch wires in the wiring. I had the fuel line routed, so put about 1/4 gallon of gas in and watched it make it to the carb through the clear fuel line and filter. Go to kick it, and.. nothing. Probably messed with it for about 15 min. and still nothing, so I guess the next step is to pull the plug and verify that it's sparking.

The kill switch actually makes contact to kill the motor (shorting signal to ground). so try starting it with the key off.

Otherwise make sure to use the choke.

after looking at it again last night I'm pretty convinced that I don't have a "proper" ground on the engine block. That's about the only reason I can think that I'm not getting any spark.

between the spares I had from the 50cc setup and my neighbor's crf I bet I can find enough parts to try swapping a couple of parts out. Either way, it can't be a bad idea to add a ground strap between frame and engine, and tie it into the wiring ground.

The key switch I bought is a 4-wire, two position switch (on/off). I did some continuity testing with my multi-meter and verified that the two wires I had hooked up had continuity in the "off" position and no continuity in the "on" position. The other wires would make a connection in the "on" position that would be broken when "off". Looks like the key switch isn't my issue at least.

Still haven't messed with the ground again, as I've spent the last couple of evenings working on my commuter bike, changing out the starter and spark plugs, flushing coolant, and extracting/replacing some broken bolts.

Thanks for talking me into selling. Now I can buy my wide foot peg mount and I freed up about 2 sq. ft. of garage floor space!

I guess if I decide to build my scootertrash-inspired wheel barrow go cart I'll just have to pick up another 125cc package. It's a hard life sometimes...

, here we are, another month has gone by and I still don't have this thing running. Anyone happen to be in the Richmond area with a Honda 50? I'd be curious to test components side-by-side (or swap out) and see if I couldn't track down the problem that way. I'm afraid it's my CDI...

, it's been a while since I've touched this bike. Just ordered a wide foot peg kit so I can just get it back together.

Time to start trouble-shooting this no-spark issue.

Previous total: $789.91
Wide foot peg kit: $29.95

Running total: $819.86
