There is an option on the delete user to delete all posts and topics. Since he was already deleted, I had to delete the posts directly in the database. I believe some security hole in a previous version allowed him to create the posts. The board has been updated.
Odyssey FL250 / Proud new owner of FL250
« Last post by decwright214 on March 01, 2018, 08:09:46 AM »
Hey all,

New to this forum, as the title states..Iíve just bought myself an FL250. Itís completely original and in fairly good condition. It will be my first buggy so Iím very excited and canít wait to put my own personal touch on it.
As I said, itís in fairly good condition but it does need a new pull start and a couple of other things. Iím planning on building it to a nice spec so my next question is....does anyone have any parts for sale? Performance exhaust etc? :)

Odyssey FL250 / 84 FL 250 overheats after 5 min then shust off ? Help
« Last post by dhunter on January 29, 2018, 10:10:32 AM »
Morning all im D and live on a ranch in the foothills of morgan hill calif which is S of the San Fran bay area, anyways I just 2 weeks ago traded a 99 Yamaha XL1200 waverunner for a nice condition and running 84 Honda FL 250 Odyssey for my 10 yr old son to ride on our ranch. Issues No# 1 I am having is first it takes like 20+ pulls to start and after my son rides about 5 maybe 10 min tops the Oddy shuts down like its orverheated, we wait about 5 min then we can usually within 5 pulls get it going again, its pretty bone stock and other than having the pull started fixed it have original airbox or snorkel intake on it, we installed a Uni air filter, all new X2 fuel filters, the guy before me like 45 days before we traded had a Go-Kart/Buggy shop do like $1300 worth of work on it due to it had sat covered in a barn for years, I know I should replace CDI coil and my son wants a light installed on it also, but I know the shop mixed 20:1 premix in it but was not sounding or running good so I got some 91 octane and some Valvoline 2 stroke oil and mix 30:1 as in lots of posts like 90% people say 30:1, 40:1 seem to run better, either way on first tank and our now second tank our still main issue is first taking forever to pull start it and mind you I have turned off gas after put away and sometimes we have left if on days in between usage and either way it take forever to pull start, but bigger issue that frustrates me and my very patient son is very short run time, I heard one fix is to install 73-74 CR250 head on it but trying to keep cost down cause I see others using Banshee rads and rigging a cooler on it, not wanting to run open air element or punch another hole in air box, and eventually we might get Goki E starter kit but the Run time is biggest issue now as I have heard others seem to run  way longer? please help a over 50s father with a outdoors 10 yr old son, thx D
General Discussion / 1989 FL400r Ignition Key?
« Last post by GRD520 on January 24, 2018, 01:49:46 PM »
Hello, my best friend is restoring his 89 FL400r that has not been driven in probably 20 years. He cannot find the ignition key and has tasked me with finding one! I have had zero success googling around. Could any of you possibly point me in the right direction?

Sounds good! Unfortunately I cannot contribute funding, however I can
contribute photos of my 1981 Honda odyssey. Would enjoy a copy if this comes to fruition.
Odyssey FL250 / Odyssey lights with eagle eyes
« Last post by Ralf on December 06, 2017, 04:45:23 AM »
Hey folks, who knows, if there is a similar set of lights for the Odyssey?
If so, please post the brand name or PM the link to me. What I like is the eagle eyes (not round, rather semicircle). Also, I want the lights with the black backing, not chromed or smoked.
If someone knows where I can find something similar, or you know someone who makes that retro-fit, you know, when they re-do stock lights, please share.
PS - here's where I've taken that Element pic from -

I'm an amsoil guy myself.. Never been a fan of the castor based stuff but many people use it... I had a squeak as you described myself once, turned out to be the belt rubbing the clutch... Take the belt off and try it... If not, it could be some compression bleeding back through the reeds... Mine runs about 175psi compression and I can get by with 92 octane pump gas so I would say straight racing fuel may not be needed... Try the 50/50 and listen for detonation... Sounds like bb's bouncing off a piece of glass...
