RS2 Matrix

Hi, ive got a Reiju RS2 2 stroke and due to an unavoidable long and hectic journey i have to take every day, i decided while i am limited by engine size, i would try a kn style pod filter i bought from eBay.


Ok, so i fitted it and [embarrasing] I didnt do anything else i.e. upjet [/embarrasing] So on my home from work the bike lost all power while going up a hill and i im certain it leaned out and seized, then more or less instantly freed up, and after a while started again to allow me to ride home..? :? ?


So, me realising how stupid ive been, i upjetted and i only have one other jet and that is a size 90, so i replaced the 72.5 jet for the 90 and tried again. The plug, when i do a plug chop, is a dark brown colour with a white ring around the tip of the electrode (could be grey, im not sure) and the insulator etc. is dark brown while the threads are black.


Now, when the bike is idling, when i check the plug it is a sooty black colour, and randomly cuts out, and then is really hard to start. When you eventually do get it started..if you turn it off, it will do the same again ???


Now, im thinking that the bike could have been running too rich? IDK?

So, with no success coming from adjusting the mixture screw, i looked at the needle clip notch in the carb and found it to be on the top notch. So i lowered it to the middle notch (standard according to the manual) and now the bike doesnt start at all.. and when i take the plug out it is wet with fuel


After some research, i found that lowering the notch makes it richer :x So, have i made it too rich now, as it wont start at all now.


What shall i do next?


Sorry for the long post, any contributions much appreciated !!!

Put it back the way it was, at least it worked! :D

 

Agreed :D Its just that extra boost from the filter did make a difference, as standard its just pants.. but like you say at least it worked :lol:


Cheers, Nick

And once its fixed buy its big brother the 125 pro version if you want to move up market. Fantastic little 4-stroke and it goes 80mph so it will handle your long trip alot better. And its 4-stroke so it will last longer. Better than that dodgy 125cc yamaha R1 lookalike imo.

I rode the 50cc version but it was too much like all the others on the market.

To be honest, Matrix, if anything, Dutch Mick deserves a little credit for diplomacy.


He was trying to avoid saying that you bought a pile of crap and then bollocksed it up by fiddling with stuff of which you have limited understanding.


Nearly everything posted on these boards is either in jest or pretty well informed advice. If you are unable to accept both or either of these options in good faith and humour I suggest you do us all a favour.

Although the comment RS2 made was well out of order....


This was a new member with what he thought was a valid question, which got the pee taken out of it straight away... and brings back the discussion of keeping on topic....


So, if we see someone asking for help, especially newbies, who dont know how it works round here ... can we try and help instead of pee taking...


Also... RS2... as stu says refer to site rules... it may be frustrating not getting the answer u seek, but taking it out on other members will not be tolerated.

He WAS told to put it back the way it was. And if he's so humourless to react the way he did to what was a harmless comment let him go 3825 himself. ( thats texting on the mobile, subtle or what lol) My first post was asking about my bike too, the first answer was, its crap, buy a better bike, I'm still here, must be either my thick skin or the fact I'm a normal human being.
