So I just got a trashpick FA50 in exchange for working on a guys Honda PA50-II.
Here's what I've found so far:
tons of oil shooting out of the exhaust when I kick it over
headset is super loose
Brakes are shot
seat doesn't latch
there's like a long hose that goes nowhere from the seat... (you can see it in the photo)
Not sure where to start first. Is there an easy way to bypass the ignition so I don't need to have new keys cut?
After that, figure I need to drain the oil from the engine and muffler, flush the fuel tank and carb, recharge the battery, do a compression test, drain and fill the transmission oil, tighten the headset, replace the brake shoes... see if I can get it running and then maybe put a bigger cylinder kit on it with some kind of expansion chamber.
I'd ideally like to replace the front shock with something static or better for my weight... and maybe get a better rear shock/spring. Replace the dry rotted tires...
