Ebay turn signal from Bluemoonscooter

The unit is solid stainless steel, very heavy, but quality is poor. there are pits that can be polished out. they look like hand made. For the price, it is a steal. I have yet to find suitable bulbs for it. With the bulb that came with it, it's useless. wiring and installation was a real pain. there...

eBay LED

I bought the Ebay $2 LED turn signal lights 31mm Festoon for 12 volt. They can barely light up with 6 volts. I wonder if 6 volts LED is available?

R60/2 Running rough and looking for some help

When I first got my bike, it would not start, I checked the sparks and installed inline fuel filters. There was air bubble in the filters, but installing the filters make the bike started. Once started, I found the left cylinder was much cooler than the right side. I swap the carb cover following Br...

Yeehah

I closed the gap on the plugs and removed the carb float cover and voila.
the left carb inlet plunger was stuck in the closed position, left cylinder wasn't getting any fuel. Now both cylinders are running and I had it up to 3rd gear, so far so good. Thanks for all your help. :D

1000 miles,so far so good

I put in two transparent inline fuel filters, so I can see fuel going to the carbs. I found spark on both cylinders. Yet when I idle the left side exhaust is only 90 degrees F while the right exhaust is 290 degrees F.

It only has barely enough power to move to shift to second gear.

100 psi is pretty much the minimum for a engine to idle/run properly.Check the valve adjustment,then maybe a rebore & next size pistons are next.
Putting oil in the combustion chamber bring up the pressure to 130 PSI on both cylinders.
