Previously on this forum I have asked about the strange symptoms Iíve had with my 2012 PX125E scooter. I found the problem but before I start I want to say a huge thank you to the helpful members of this forum. I hope this post will contribute to the vast amount of useful information and help someone else
I asked a short time ago for advice about the strange things my scooter was doing. Originally it would run great one day and crap the next and I couldnít be sure if it was my imagination.
The scooter was somewhat de-restricted with a Zeus CDI, drilled air filter and sip Rd 2 exhaust. When the engine ran backwards, someone on here suggested the Timing was way out.
Upon close inspection I found the head was warped so I fitted a DR177 top end and changed the CDI back to the original one. but I was still unhappy with the ignition and wondered if the fault was the pickup on the stator plate.so I decided to swap the flywheel, Stator plate and CDI unit with the one on my P200E project.
The flywheel rocked as if the taper was different. So I removed the stator again and tried the original flywheel torqued to itís correct setting.
This is when I discovered the shaft was moving. The flywheel side bearing is faulty. I mentioned this to a forum member who helped me recently with my Carburettor jetting. His advice and offer to help me set up the new engine has prompted me to go for it.
