Having a website is fun!

Except when I am more busy fighting off spambots than to add material to the website.
Hopefully we will find a better solution soon, so we can resume normal activities.

So, this week we are working on:

  • Adding pictures to the albums from our user Firestone who was so kind to drop us a CD with a bunch of nice pictures!
  • Adding some more reference material. All material needs to be screened first, but we're still expanding :D

Let's see how far we get, especially since there are also a bunch of birthdays to celebrate this week.

Changes to the Honda SS50

I've been busy for a while now to find a proper low exhaust pipe for my Honda SS50, but so far still no success. Last week I've ordered a C50 pipe but that pipe is too narrow and causes severe performance issues. So i've been busy drilling some strategic holes and removed the end muffler, but stil no success. It runs a little bit better, but it's pleh.

I could of course buy a C90 pipe, but those are waaaay too expensive. Suggestions are welcome :)

Owwwww D:

Like every day I was driving my daily 30 km drive from work and while I tried to avoid some idiotic VW Golf drivers, I was pondering about the possibility that the current weather might be too warm for Little Hondas.


For the past few days I am tinkering the settings because my grey Honda PC50 is not running very well. The current outside temperature is 25-30 degrees Celcius and little wind. When the engine was cold, it ran well but along the route the performance declined quite a bit. So was it the heat, and especially the engines' ability to properly aircool the cilinder in these weather conditions?

I think I have figured it out in a bad way. 15 Kilometres from home, the engine stalled, made a very narly sound and quit. WTF, did the piston jam?? Fortunately I was able to slowly rotate the crankshaft, so in any case, there was still a chance of going home by moped.

After letting the engine cool for about 10 minutes, I carefully started the engine again and thank goodness, no smoke from the exhaust. Too bad tho that the engine has almost no power left and it will not go faster that 35km/h at the moment. Headwind also greatly reduces speed, so my guess is that I -only- blew a gasket.

We'll find out soon :)
