Someone else on here might know more but it is a 4-stroke 49cc. I believe they were almost exactly the same

Well cleaned the carb and it started right up. Just need to get an air filter and a master cylinder for the left hand rear brake and some screws to put the plastic back on

Good fixer upper. Remember, these bikes even with a brand name, parts will not be found by name, only by searching up the motor, or other direct part names and specs.

Do you have the old headlight bulb you can read the number off of it? I'm not sure offhand, as far as the oil it should say it somewhere on the engine or the oil dipstick but it's either 10 W 30 or 15 w40, I can't remember, you could probably run either depending on winter or summer

It takes 10w 30 you need motorcycle oil that's designed for a wet clutch. If you go to the auto parts store you will see the oil it has a picture of a motorcycle on it and it will say on the side that it's designed for a wet clutch.

I am in Florida, winter doesn't exist down here!😱 As for the bulb, looks like I will have to remove the faring to get it out, why I asked. I would like to changed to led if available

Well there you go, 10w 30 for you year-round. And are you sure it's a wet clutch on those engines? I thought that was only on the manuals not the automatics. Either way motorcycle oil is what you should use regardless. Yeah you'll have to just pull the Fairing and check the light. I can't imagine very many people actually wrote that number down. LOL

They all do have a wet clutch the semi-automatic the clutch arm has linkage to the clutch basket you can actually hold the shift lever down with your foot and rev it when you let off it disengages the clutch and force it to do wheelies ( usually ends in catastrophic failure of the transmission ).

The single speed automatic has a centrifugal wet clutch.

But honestly the only difference of the oils is the zinc additive then the detergent for the clutch you can actually make motorcycle oil by adding 1 oz of ATF transmission fluid and a zinc additive in a pinch.
