« on: September 05, 2017, 01:37:51 PM »
After opening up a few post from georgeHarmayynd I shut down my I Pad  the next day when I tryed to start it up it was frozen the message that was coming up was that my system was under attack someone was trying to access  my information from another site . So  my son who writes computer programs for a livening was able to clean it up for me . I'm not sure it happened when I opened one of those post but that was the last thing I did befor it froze up on me so be careful what you open .

Odyssey FL250 / Lighting question
« on: November 30, 2015, 03:36:46 PM »
I think I have an 81 oddy but not sure I checked the # on my frame they don't match any I've seen #are TB00400BC401280 now here's the question  both of my lites are very dim head lite and tail lite checked all the lines there good but I only have 6 volts coming out of  them my bulb is a 12 v for the head lite that's why I was trying to see what year I had if it was before an 80 model I could understand it . I don't think the older ones had a tail lite  but may be Iam wrong . Should I just get a 6v  35w bulb and try that out . I can run it from my battery but that would just run it wright down  thanks for any help you guys can give me.

Odyssey FL350R / Jetting for cold weather
« on: November 28, 2015, 11:55:44 AM »
My wife bought me a fl350 about 5 months ago  so I would not sit around the house . I was wounded about 2 years ago  and I used to love working on things before  and the odyssey are great because I have trouble using  my  legs and the hand controls  are perfect . Did not do much work on 2 strok engines so most of it is new to me even bought my son a fl250 to have some one to ride with and to work on them with its hard for me to get to some of the places on it but to the point when I first rode the 350 it ran great  now that it dropped in temp I noticed a drop in power so I took the carb off to clean and check the jet sizes the pilot is a 45, main was  130  and the clip on the needl was in the 1st grove the top  air screw was a littel more then 2 turns out  that seems way to lean . I got from a man in south Caroline so I figured he had it set up for the summers there but way to lean for Pennsylvania winters  I don't know what the pipes are but there not stock  put a new uni air filter in kept the pilot the same 45 moved the main up to a 142 air screw to 11/2 turns out moved the clip to 3rd grove on needl . Now when I ride it it idels good  wide open good it's the middle seems like Iam not getting power should I move clip down  our go bigger on main I've done a compression  check 130 and leak test holds 6lb for almost 9 min I would like to get it set up to ride in the snow when we get it . Temp between 25 &45 degrees altitude about 750 from sea level .thanks for any help this forum is great I've learned a lot from it I think I read all the post more then once seem like every problem I've had been written about .

Odyssey FL250 / Few question on 81 250
« on: November 05, 2015, 06:15:18 AM »
I bought a 81 250 for my son  I have a fl350 myself  I bought  the 250 through eBay so I did not get a chances to check it out  but the prices was good 
So I said why not . It has a 30mm muklin flatslid carb pilot jet is 45 but there is no number on the main jet  and I can't figure out how to get the needle out to check what grove it's in  it's gravity feed
Which I hate we'll most likely put it back to stock .the vacum hose  is not hooked up to any thing should I cap that off for now and for a 250 what's better running 32/1 or 40/1 on the 350 Iam running
40/1 but does the 250 need more oil . And how do you change the oil in the reduction case I can't find a drain bolt and the Manuel is no help thanks
