Linhai 300 Delivery

CCW Misfit Prep Delivery

Sept 17 – 19  has Scootertronics out on the road with one of the last deliveries (SC) of a Linhai Aeolus 300 2008 model with seat back rest which makes it a rare bird. Scootertronics does have two left in Blue or Red 2008 Linhai Aeolus 300 (2599.99 75 delivery PDI FREE of course) which was the very last year  the Linhai 300 was produced. These sold at Scootertronics through 2011 locally and hand delivered. The start of 2013 I was able to put a few out on the road by adding a strong PDI which included new water pump housing, coolant system gaskets, thermostat plus housing just to be on the safe side since these certain cooling system parts new after sitting and with only a clean of calcium I simply replaced the parts affected so they are new again. Works for me everytime.  Sitting that long needed a real good flush and Blue Ice added for coolant. Quick 4 miles and cooling off and not reaching halfway. Will need oil change at 700 and magnetic oil plug installed.

The Linhai 400 plus Linhai 150s and 50s start arriving in a week than we do some testing and upgrades to see what we really have in EFI Linhai 400. The Vog 260 with EFI has worked out very well and is a very good running 257cc scooter Linhai engine that shadows the Yamaha Majesty 250 of which the Linhai 400 will shadow the Yamaha Majesty 400. To get real clear on Linhai and Yamaha. The engine design is the same. I have used Yamaha after market culinders on the LOnhai no proble. Than that just leaves everyyhing else put the panels which includes all CVT parts , variator, weights, clutch and Bell, plus torque springs and driven pulley.

A CCW Misfit 250 also deliveries this week and comes prepped from Pit so it was good to go. This was also done while it was assembly by Scootertronics so we could change a few small parts that make the battery fit correctly. These Cafe Racer style bikes get it done with a fresh look and plenty of performance plus upgrade performance parts that are done before delivery.

Scooter Carbs Fuel and Air

After so many years and hundreds of new and used scooters and motorcycles coming into the shop plus the consumers who call the following is quite clear.

Fuel and Air play a huge part in the performance of the 50cc scooters and of course all scooters and motorcycle due to the golden rule of air fuel and spark and away you go. At Scootpower’s very Scootertronics jets play a huge role in getting the scooters with the correct amount of mixture and velocity.

Keep this ratio of fuel and air on the rich side the air cooled scooter and motorcycle runs better that running lean which a vast majority of scooters are running lean once they leave factory for the US EPA which has all this crazy EGR hoses and catch cans all over the place.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         On scooters I remove all EGR and raise the main jet to 90/95 and pilot to a 45 (50cc stock is 35) 150 to 115 45 on a air cooled four stroke 50cc or 150cc scooter, two stroke 50cc) models to  pilot also 45 the main jet consumers can choose 80-120 according to their engine (two Stroke) whether they have an upgrade to exhaust and cylinder or one without the other, a stock Zuma should get a 80 please check yours first with most finding a 75 main. When cylinders and exhaust are upgraded air  filters and jets go up for two stroke to around 97 seems to do well in the 17.5 – 19mm carbs above 19mm (21mm) use larger ones due to a high powered pipe and cylinder that has better ports and more ports than a stock iron or a generic iron 70cc kit.yhst-3342088133151_2258_100143195 Scootertronics carries most sizes that consumers need the most with the round and hex for PWK and a few other CVK carbs. All jets are Keihin for CVK carbs found in Kymco four stroke and GY6 four stroke. Mikuni jets are featured along with Dellorto jets for all two stroke which include the round jets used in Minerlli engine carbs. PWK and Flatslide use keihin jets with using both round and hex sizes. Air filters play a huge roll with jetting. The GY6 50 an UNI Dual Layer is best for stock and slight mods at 70cc with exhaust. The get the most power from a GY6 50cc 139QMB engine is using a “cold air intake” which is really  longer tube and open flow air filter that creates the correct velocity of air when added to the fuel delivered to the engine through a
