Um, would it hurt to replace the pawl assm. on mine. along with the starter?
The rope starter part has two plastic cogs in the housing attached to the rope recoil wheel. It has to turn the crank, pawls are the only thing between?

How to change pawl assm. if it's needed?

Thanks for reply
Scott
If you have the rectangle with plastic catch you do realize even when the pullstarter isnt being pulled the spring loaded plastic catch always makes contact with the pullstarter..

With the gsmoon setup the pullstarter only makes contact with the pawl when the rope is being yanked..

Your choice but I will say that swapping to a GSmoon setup is as easy as swapping out the bad pawl for a good one and you wont need extras...


The gsmoon pull and pawl are on ebay for like 12 bux free shipping...

Good Luck

Re: Fuel Flow Problem -- APC Mini Chopper

Sounds like you have the alum rectangle starter pawl with plastic cam on the pulley. They sell sets for both types. You remove that big nut on the crankshaft end and remove it, think its threaded on. On eBay search 43cc - 49cc X1, X7 pocket bike engine parts, should be able to find something there. Do you have the flat alum shim that goes between the starter housing and engine case??

MrKitty dont waste your time buy a few new ones and keep them on hand

dont yank on the rope what you do is pull the starter gently untill it engages then pull if you have to yank over and over your engine is not tuned properly

Re: Fuel Flow Problem -- APC Mini Chopper

I use #5 or #6 chainsaw starter rope and rewind the pulley, at least on a reed port engine. On my piston ports I just buy a new starter housing.

DO you have any idea where I can find a quality rope starter?
I replaced my starter twice and again it's skipping on the cogs and now the rope pulls fine but wont engage.
Looking, I found some with a metal cog thing and don't know what that's for or how to install it, if mine has one of those?
But they're plastic pull engage gear worries me
I have another replacement but the 1st two broke, so why try to use it.
Again I need a lead
Frustrated
Thanks
Scott
If you dont have the GSMoon style pullstarter and pawl I suggest one and if its the type youre talking about there are two stainless steel wires that make contact with the pawl...

Its the most toughest pullstarter out of the other 2 thats out there now..I pullstart engines that are 200-220psi and only issue was breaking the cord...LOL


If you don't install the thin aluminum shim between the e-starter and the pullstarter it will cause skipping problems in the pullstarter

Re: Fuel Flow Problem -- APC Mini Chopper

I'm liking the bigger tires in pics. Maybe I need to try riding mine on a blacktop road, gravel road is not to friendly. lol

I stuck a second engine on my mini harley...I also stretched the frame a lil longer too..







Cool, Twin engines. I'm guessing a 7hp is bigger than a 49cc and prolly haul my butt. Yeah. Mounting and functionally? idk

Re: Fuel Flow Problem -- APC Mini Chopper

I would not sell it for less than $300, that $365 would be like $600 at todays prices. But, its only worth what a buyer is willing to pay, don't give it away, its a collector bike now.

Think I'm done with it, got it finished.
Starts easy, runs good, all the lights, blinkers, headlamp, stop, horn, back fender, etc.
Going to try sending pics.
Maybe you would tell me worth and opinion?
Thank You
Scott
Looks good man....YOU did a pretty nice job on that mini chopper getting it done..

Only thing I see a lil askew is the sissy bar and rear fender..it seems a lil tweaked but very easy to straighten......


As far as what i would value it at I dont know what you paid for the bike and the parts but I will say brand new they were $365.00 back in 04/05 so I hope that can give you a base where to start...........

Lots of luck with it and go have some good rides before you get rid of it...

Thanks for the update and You're Welcome Scott...Take care bud.
