Some Buddys (I think the BJ and some others) came with an upgraded horn. I upgraded my Buddy 161 with a stebel. Someone enjoyed that scoot!

It looks pretty good in there. If everything is good I would just clean out the acorns, lube the cables and ride!


got some vsp blinker adapter wires coming plus i want to peel the flower decals put on new grips and some new mirrors (after inspection)...i'm itching to ride it but i have to get it insured then get to the rmv to get plated/registered which is only open during the work week 9-5 and then get inspected within 7 days...also still a ton of sand and salt on the roads here plus still pretty cold so waiting is probably better...give me some time to get cleaned up and dialed in

pulled the front cover off and brought it inside my house to warm up and then began peeling flower stickers...high quality multi-part vinyl stickers with intricate cuts made it take quite a while...very tedious...then i applied some goo gone and let it sit and wipe it down with a paper towel...i had to repeat this multiple times cause the goo would not come off easily so a lot of elbow grease was required

i have to do the front colored wheel fender, the rear trunk as well as the lower panel under the floorboard from the kickstand to the tail section (only 1 side has stickers) and the front side panel with the dead lights (only 1 side has stickers)...i have to look up how hard it is to remove those body panels...the rear side panel doesn't look bad...the front panel that houses the dead lights looks like a pain (may have to do that on a warm day outside)...the colored part of the front wheel fender may not be bad...if any of them is a pain to remove i will do them on a warm day...i just figure it would be easier to do in my house where i have good light and it's warmer at the moment

anyone know where i can find a complete list of parts blowup diagrams?

found it...

on the airbox hose the second bung from the carburetor on the side with 2 bungs (the 1 without the wire)...it doesn't attach to anything correct?...i pulled it off and there didn't seem to be a hole into the hose so i'm not sure what it's for

thanks fellas...i aired up the tires to 30psi...i began to do a valve check and then once i got the cover off i realized all my feeler gauges are in inches...i used 0.076mm (0.003in) instead of 0.08mm...i ordered some metric feeler gauges so i will readjust when i get them...basically just did a test run

found it after some searching...it's a motor oil plug...does anyone know the specs on the crush washer...i'm assuming an oem washer will cost more than one at an auto parts store

edit: i wiped the bolt head dry and tightened it a little to see if it will leak anymore...once i redo the valves i will run it a bit and let the oil warm up and then let it sit to see if it leaks from that nut before i do the oil change

found out that i have a tc5 topcase...the reflector is available but it looks like if i swap out the cracked one i will lose the emblem sticker that's currently on it...i wonder if i can heat it up and peel it off and reapply it with some glue

also found this thread that explains that the open connection that i saw near the oil filter is for carb compliance equipment...using the site specific search on google helps a lot...i'm guessing that the 3rd connection on the air box hose is for carb compliance equipment as well?

not sure if i want to run the trunk or not just yet...i may just take the mounting hardware from the trunk and mount a milk crate to the rear

may even look for a decent set of saddlebags for heavier loads since the rear rack weight capacity is only what 11lbs?...it doesn't look like a very good design and the chrome one i have is starting to rust a bit...having the weight cantilevered off the back by 3 bolts mounted to the front isn't very smart...i'm surprised they don't make one that clamps onto the crash bars...not sure which set would work well with the crash bars but not spending the money for the prima bags...while i'm trying to sell my sw-motech blaze motorcycle bags maybe i'll see if i can run those...they are pretty adjustable with a velcro strap that would typically go over the seat but i'm not sure if i will be able to shut them under the seat and have it latch...but i can remove the plastic attaching clips from the mounting harware and figure out a way to mount them as well as a way to make sure they don't slide forward since the support arms wouldn't be present
