PeeWee Oil Pump Adjustment

    I bought my eldest sone one of those Chinese PeeWee 50 knockoffs for
    Christmas. It's an _exact_ copy of the Yamaha variety, and is apparently
    made by the same company that Yamaha uses to build theirs (Jianshe). On
    Saturday, in 30 degree heat, the engine seized.

    Once it cooled down, I was able to turn it over again, and it seems like
    there's still plenty of compression (it starts and runs same as ever), so
    I'm hoping that not too much damage has been done to the bore.

    The bike has an oil pump which injects the 2-stroke oil. Following the oil
    feed hose, I have locaed the regulator control (is controlled via a
    secondary cable, activated by the throttle, so more throttle=more lube)
    removed a cover and found an adjusting nut/blot which should allow me to
    increase oil flow (I have always suspected it's been a bit on the light side
    oilwise).

    Has anyone had any experience with either a clone or a genuine PW50 in this
    area. The owner's manual simply says "Autolube Pump - Check/Adjust/Air
    Bleeding" every 6 months. Not a lot of help really. Does anyone know how
    much to move the adjuster? Is it just a matter of running the bike while
    adjusting it, and seeing how much smoke comes out? If the plug fouls all the
    time, then wind it back in a tad?

    I'm hoping to learn of a more scientific approach.

    I guess my other option is to disconnect the oil pump, and self-mix the
    fuel. Probably a safer bet...?

    Helps? It'll do more than that!

    Thanks for the only truly useful thing that I've ever gotten from this
    group!

    Other than well-placed abuse....

    I dunno, I remember many here bending over backwards to help you with your
    CX500, only for you to shit on them and sell it a couple of months later
    (and make $$ on some of the bits people here helped to get you cheap)

    Really? I think your memory must be failing.

    1. The only 'bit' I got for my CX via this group (other than the CX
    itself) was a fly screen, courtesy of sledge. I paid him with a bottle
    of bourbon. We were both happy. All other parts came either from a
    friend in the CX scene who has never frequented this group,
    from my local wrecker or as new spares from Honda.

    2. A couple of months was closer to 2 years.

    3. 90% of the comments about the CX were things like "Why the ****
    would you want to rida a piece of crap like that?".

    4. If you think restoring a bike, a process that cost probably close to
    $2500 to subsequently sell it for $1850 is "shitting on people", then I
    dunno what anyone could reasonably expect.

    I concede that I was obviously exaggerating to say the "only useful
    thing...". The point I guess I was trying to make is that in recent
    times, the ratio of useful posts to sheer crap has tipped in an
    unhealthy fashion as opposed to other similar groups that I have
    frequented....

    but hey... It IS an open forum. Dickheads included...

    and yes... I DO include myself.
