My magnum 300 was running good but it was not charging the battery. I had already changed r/r due to bad diodes. Still not charging so changed stator. After I put it back together I started it up. It took several tries. I let it warm up while I watched the voltage gauge. It was showing 13.5 volts. so I try to give it a little throttle and bring up the rpm and see if voltage goes up The engine bogged, shuddered, backfired then died. I checked to see if I knocked any thing loose but all looked good. Started it back up (it started right up) It idles smooth at between 980rpm and 1010rpm. I blip the throttle and it does the same thing. Tried again, even if I barley twist the throttle, same thing. I haven't checked to see if auto choke is working yet.. Any comments as to why it would start running like this right after I changed the stator? Before it Idled between 850 and 900 rpm and ran perfect.
You might be able to order seals and bearing from Nappa. Talk to Jim at rapid repair about the spindle. If he cant get one talk to a machine shop about repairing the spindle. if it is wore out due to the bearing spinning the may be able to weld and bore, make a press in sleeve ,ect. I would need to see spindle to determine best method of repair. Do you Know the size of bearings and seals?
Not sure if the bearing size on the 300 are the same. The fiddy trike had 6205z bearings. Nappa didn't have them. I got my wider bearing from work. Cant remember the size, but have it wrote down somewhere. now if I can only remember where.
I'm guessing the castle nut on the axle is loose. You may have to add a washer or more between the hub and the nut to get it tight and get cotter pin to line up. It is possible a bearing is bad. On my fiddy trike the bearing spacer on the inside of axle tube chewed into the axle tube causing the axle to move in and out. I milled the inside lip flat an used a wider bearing. Take nut and hub off remove dust seal and c-clip. replace hub and nut. There is also some axle retaining screws in axle tub near fender mounts that must be removed. Use a slide hammer attached to hub to pull axle assembly. Hope This helps.
Dash cams are a little different than regular video cams. They are usually wired into the vehicle acc. switch so they start recording when the vehicle is turned on and stop when it is turned off. Most of them use a memory card. They usually record on a loop and will hold many hours of video, when the card is full they will record over the oldest files. Here is a good sight to help explain some of the features. and help you determine what kind of camera is best suited to your use. dashboardcamerareviews.com is a good place to start. But search around. Hope this helps.
when I got my 50cc trike from ice bear it already had an 83cc bbk. stock head exhaust ect. the 19mm carb had a #28 pilot jet and a #80 main jet installed and it would run 40+mph on level but around 20ish up hills. I tried a # main jet and # 32 pilot and could not get it to run. I ended up with a #82 main and a#30 pilot. A # main was to big without an exhaust and intake upgrade. Now with a bbk you have more power which necessarily does not equate to more speed, you should be able to pull hills a little better and get up to speed faster. Say the belt in the cvt is running all the way to the top of the pulley in the variator and all the way down in the clutch pulley with engine turning 7500rpm@ 30mph with a 49.5cc engine and you install a 83cc bbk. At the same 7500rpm the belt can not move any more than it already was with the smaller engine, hence no more speed. The belt will move to the maximum at a slightly lower rpm because the larger engine develops more hp and torque at a lower rpm than the smaller engine.
Ya, no need to apologize. first of all you need to find out if you have a 150cc engine or a 50cc engine. The 150cc engine is a 157QMJ and the 50cc engine is a 139QMB. Look for the engine code by the kick starter.
BBK's are usually rounded up in cc's For instance an advertised 100cc bbk is really only 83cc and the 80cc bbk is really only 73cc.
I dunno. I think I'd look at a used Burgman, Silverwing, Reflex, Helix, or my favourite, a Big Ruckus. (And a Big Ruckus would look sooo much kooler leading the parade/escort) It may cost a little more, (but not much) and I think you would be much happier. Not dissin Chinese scoots, I got one, but I paid just over $4000 for it, which is double your budget.
Just giving food for thought. Used ain't always bad. I know, I like new too, but no one makes a trike, not even for what I paid for mine, so I had little choice.
Your local CL has a couple scooters/Roketas you might be interested in also.
Yep, used ain't always bad. I got my 2010 magnum 300 in early 2011 off of craigslist. It only had 83 miles on it, new was $4300. I got it for $2800.
I like the technical terms. Metal rods, also known as a connecting rod. Turny thing, also known as a crankshaft. Like what novaraptor stated there is any number of thing that could cause a no start problem. More info would be a help.
