How to Speed Up a Honda Elite
S, SR SLOW? Top speed 25 MPH?
is what you need to do:
and drill out the Washer that is welded into the head pipe. The washer
is very thick, about 3/4". You may need to take the muffler to a
shop or machine shop to find someone with a large enough drill bit and
a drill press. That will restore the engine power to what was
at the factory.
Next, yo need to remove
the kick start cover, and the front clutch. Take the nut off the
(front clutch) remove the outer pulley half, pull the belt off.
back half of the clutch will now pull right off the crankshaft.
Look at the back
of the clutch. The metal plate held on with three screws is the travel
limiter. That plate keeps the clutch from shifting up all the
keeping the speed down.
||Remove the three screws and discard the plate and screws.
||Reinstall the clutch
||Make sure you have the clutch outer
pulley installed correctly on the splines on the end of the crankshaft,
before you tighten the nut. You do not want to get it on crooked, it is
easy to destroy the crankshaft. Tighten the nut securely. Replace
the kickstart cover and you should now have a top speed of about
35 mph. Be careful!
|The faster models of the Elite
have a split throttle cable so the oil pump output increases when you
the throttle. If you are going to be at sustained high speeds you
either replace the single cable with a split one to control oil flow,
add a small amount of extra oil directly to the fuel in the tank. I
not had any problems without doing either of these when the machine is
used in town, but I have had a few people worried about lack of oil at
speed, so here you are warned. Some have suggested tying
pump open, but then you get more oil than needed at idle and slow
Better to add 1-2 ounce per gallon in the tank.
