Since you are doing a full tear down and Build up .
How extreme are you going on bringing her back?
Stock ,Sport, Mid Race


Since this is my 1st scooter and was in rough shape I decided to go mainly stock. If I like it when done, I will get another and soup it up a bit.
For those looking for oem parts, RonAyers.com has great prices. Ive used them for years and found their prices mostly unbeatable.

Well you will be intimately familiar with a rebuild.
So when you want to upgrade you will be able to swap parts easy enough.
Have fun and keep up with the pictures it will keep it from being intimidating for others when they tear into it .
My 11 year old can just about swap out a bbk kit I just have to do the finest detail work (wrist pin clips and rings ) and porting and polishing .

Its ALIVE! Been having a lot of fun rebuilding the swamped derelict. I got her all together this weekend and she fired right up. I bled the oil pump (50:1) in the tank. Then confirmed oil flowing from delivery hose. She absolutely runs like butter. And surprisingly, every electronic piece works perfect. Amazing since she sat under water for a good period of time. I wanted a challenge and got one. Don't know if Id do another flooded one, very time consuming. Tank was rusted horribly, but cleaned up nice using electrolysis and vinegar. Next Im going to change out the front wheel bearings and seals and detail her good.


Id like to give a special thanks to zino18. I appreciate your help.
Check out the wasp nest under the bezel.

Congrats on getting it rebuilt. What's your top speed looking like?

Nice work on bringing her back to life .
You really tore in to that.
It is amazing how much abuse these 2 stroke yammies can take .
Be prepared for your Buddies to take up the scooter hobby and have you help build them one .
I had a buddy over last week that I talked into jumping on my eton and we went racing around on some back roads and trails .
He wants one now .
He says that thing takes off like a dirt bike .

Considering Ive only put about six miles on it and not broken in yet, I haven't pushed it yet.

There are mixed opinions about breaking in the engine. I put my 70cc bbk in a few weeks ago and it only has 19kms on it. I have ridden it wuite a few times on full throttle. Apparently you should be using all throttle positions. Zino also recommended me at the time I installed it to ride it hard out.

Cody he is right
I am in the warm it up real well and ride it hard camp at varying throttle points with a new bbk kit .
At each new tank of gas I run longer and longer at full throttle.
I use this guys thought process .
http://www.mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm

I am about 500 miles on the zuma kit it has loosened up about 2 mph from my first couple of tanks of gas .
I am about a 100 miles on the vino kit .

Correct! It is very important to fluctuate the throttle during break in. My point was that Im not ready to hold her wide open yet to see what my top speed is yet. Will let you know following my own break in regime.
