Postby COSMIN » Tue Sep 22, 2009 2:21 pm

I would like to present the repair and recondition an Aprilia Scarabeo, older model.
Scooter is not mine, is a friend.Unfortunately it was purchased dismantled,all electrical installation is cut, the CDI and the couplings of the magneto are cut, do not know the order of the wires,the power that comes from the battery is cut,not working lights, signaling.

Now we start with the presentation of progress:

I spread the engine today, I cleaned the piston, cylinder and cylinder heads soot.
tomorrow should assemble everything and climb the motoron the frame and try to give ignition.

I want to ask you something:
You have manual for Aprilia Scarabeo 5o cc 2T, older model?. or layout electrical

some tips,How should I know which wires must be connected to magneto as to give me spark.
a scheme to carburetor? This model has manual or electric shock?

and pictures will follow tomorrow!

Today i managed to start the engine :D
after many hours of trial and combinations of cables, today I managed to start the engine, after I changed the CDI site with a new one, this to make sure that does not try in vain.

tomorrow comes a new day of work ...
I will get to restore the electrical installation!

these are pictures from yesterday, so look scooter when he got to me.

Thanks!

unfortunately the scooter is in a deplorable state.I very much work to make it mechanically functional and aesthetically impeccable.all electrical installation must be restored so that it can not be saved.

at least I did the engine and I managed to make it start.When my friend bought the scooter, was spread. and one who had not taken care of before it all.
is full of improvisation,but will not stay that way. I will keep you posted with the progress of restoration

Today my buddy and has also taken an Aprilia Scarabeo, the same pattern as that which we struggled to fix it.it has destroyed the engine and carburetor kit miserably bad.
so we put on the job and I made one of two damaged good,I changed the engine set by the old motor scooter bought today,I cleaned carburetor, changed the oil with Mobil 1 2T
and started at the first shot.

so the old Scarabeo remains mine: D
I will continue the project when I have money
it needs cylinder, cylinder heads, piston rings and other trinkets.

Meanwhile I started to prepare the frame for paint,and other components.

hi hi...I have not said anything on here recently.
I did not have much time so I can handle the scooter, but I managed to make a place safe from the snow and quiet waiting until spring.

in exchange the other day not having what to do outside the car, I decided to take Scarabeo engine house and make it.
so I started up, mounted piston, piston, bolt fuses and gaskets.
I need a new cylinder heads, because it has broken cooling fins.

I barely wait summer so i can paint and assemble the scooter
some pictures of work evolution :
