How do I remove the starter gear on an Elite 80?

I've been having troubles with my starter on my 1986 Honda Elite 80 lately, so I decided to open it up and take a look. Following the manual, I got all the way to the step of removing the starter gear and could not get it out. I don't have the special flywheel puller tool. Is there a way to remove t...

Re: 1986 Honda Elite 80 -- difficulty starting/bad idle

Yeah... :/ Well I think I might be able to have a friend weld it up over the weekend. We'll see how that goes... I'm afraid to ride it to his house in the current condition but he said it isn't bad for the scooter to ride it with the damaged muffler. Is this true?

Re: 1986 Honda Elite 80 -- difficulty starting/bad idle

Hey guys thanks for all your replies. I don't have the equipment to test the compression unfortunately. As an update, I messed with the idle speed on the carb and turned it up a bit. That seemed to help with the idle issues, just had to give it some gas to help start it at first. Then after it warme...

Re: 1986 Honda Elite 80 -- difficulty starting/bad idle

Hi Ruckenstein, When I cleaned out the carburetor, I checked to make sure there were no cracks. I had read somewhere on the forums of someone who had a crack in theirs that caused them issues, but I saw no cracks in mine. Just as an update, the scooter is having issues idling again. When I started i...

Re: 86 Honda Elite 80 back brake problems

Hi drakhen, Sorry, I guess I didn't explain it very well. The brake level sticks when I squeeze the brake. The brake lever doesn't pop back out, but rather stays pressed in. Also, I don't have very much braking power. Not enough to quickly stop the scooter at any decent speed. Compared to my front b...

Re: 86 Honda Elite 80 back brake problems

So I disconnected the brake cable from the brake arm and the brake arm seemed to be fine. I'm not exactly sure how I am supposed to test the cable, but it didn't really seem to be sticking. If I pull on the brake arm while I press and release the brake lever, the brake lever goes back out all the wa...

Re: 1986 Honda Elite 80 -- difficulty starting/bad idle

Hi all, So I finally put the exhaust gasket on after I was able to change the tire. After a little bit of idle adjustment, it runs fine and doesn't die when I don't give it gas! It still feels different when I ride it though. I noticed that it seems to take more gas to actually get going when I acce...

Re: 1986 Honda Elite 80 -- difficulty starting/bad idle

Hi yimmys85,

Yes, I did replace the choke starter valve. The old one was broken so I replaced it, but that didn't seem to help me issues at all.
Thanks for your input though!

86 Honda Elite 80 back brake problems

Hi all, I recently took the crankcase off my scooter to replace the belt and in doing so I disconnected the rear brake cable from the brake in the back. When I reconnected the cable, I tightened the nut exactly the same amount as it was before I took it off. Now when I squeeze the brake lever, it do...

Re: 1986 Honda Elite 80 -- difficulty starting/bad idle

Okay so I went to fire it up today to see how it's doing and it started right up first try. I let it idle for a minute or two and then it died. I tried turning the idle screw in a little more because I understand that is supposed to make it idle at higher rpms, but it didn't seem to like that. Is th...

Re: 1986 Honda Elite 80 -- difficulty starting/bad idle

Thanks for the suggestion jpfvita. I found an exhaust gasket from bikebandit.com and will get that ordered and installed soon. Do you think this is probably a cause of the rough idle? Also, I forgot to mention earlier that the guy who I bought it from had removed the crankcase breather. From what I ...

1986 Honda Elite 80 -- difficulty starting/bad idle

Hi everyone, I recently got a 1986 Honda Elite 80 with quite a few miles on it and it seemed to be working fine when I bought it (of course). However, when I brought it home it started having some starting trouble and wouldn't idle well. I have been reading around these and some other forums a whole...

Re: 2007 Honda CH80 Parts Diagrams (Hard Copy) Needed

Here's the manual for the older Elites: http://www.motorscooterguide.net/Manual ... Manual.pdf
It may or may not be relevant for the 2007; I'm not sure.
