Mosquito fogger

Last year I worked on a friends 250 Mototrans and it ran well after my tinkering. As it's a collector bike for him, it is seldom used. He called me this week saying it smokes badly now. Yeah, like fog the garage out within a couple minutes! Within the last 6 months the float and petcocks leaked and ...

Re: New guy in Mototrans forum, and merge it all together?

Thanks Bob. I disconnected the bad scr and ran it. Jumpered per your data, then disconnected the 'good' scr. Lights off for no system load and still no charging. Just for grins I disconnected the OE reg and patched in a full wave bridge I had. As expected the DC climbed over 8V as it's unregulated. ...

Re: New guy in Mototrans forum, and merge it all together?

I'm regulator shopping. Haven't put much time into it but I've found a few. Any suggestions welcome. http://www.electrexworld.co.uk/acatalog/RR01.html http://www.regulatorrectifier.com/catalog/Universal-Regulators http://www.ebay.com/itm/360419086954?item=360419086954&viewitem=&vxp=mtr http:...

Re: New guy in Mototrans forum, and merge it all together?

Thanks Jon, I'll look into the second fuse as everything is working apparently off of one fuse.
As to the charging, I'm thinking of something like this. A bit spendy at $150 but I'll keep websearching.

Re: New guy in Mototrans forum, and merge it all together?

Thanks guys, It was a hot and miserable ride on the 998 yesterday. We intended to hammer the back roads for about 600 miles but a couple of the guys were getting weak from the oppressive humidity and 93 ish temperature. Ya think they'd listen to this old EMT when I keep hammering them to drink more?...

Re: New guy in Mototrans forum, and merge it all together?

thx again Bob, I'll dig into it a bit more and as I can't find a schematic for the particular bike, I'll throw up some pics for posterity. Googling turns up several Mototrans 350 schematics which I assume would be the same as this 250. (but as it's Italo/Spanish, we both know what assume means!) Ign...

Re: New guy in Mototrans forum, and merge it all together?

Thx bob, I brought the battery up to make it easier to notice a voltage rise as one that's relatively down as you know, will require more time at rate to get the syst volts on the rise. Was it at 1.260? No. Did I measure the sg? No. But after several minutes of intermittent testing of lights, and th...

Re: New guy in Mototrans forum, and merge it all together?

It took me a bit to figure out why my original thread in Mototrans was locked per my previous posts. Gee, I didn't think I pissed anyone off! Duhh,, merged into the singles group. It runs fine and is a hoot to ride and as the owner has other priorities it's been sitting at my house for a couple week...

Re: Newbie here

I made the steering stops and no more paranoia about crashing the tank. Lathed up a thrust washer for the kick shaft seal and not a drop! I cleaned the Amal guts, cleaned the points,flooded the carb and it lit off on the first kick. A little idle circuit tweaking and it runs great. It is rich at ste...
