This is my first thread on TAI and pleasure to tell about my kinetic restoration.
Thankful with two persons for my restoration work. First Deville_56 for his thread The Mighty Kiney – Kinetic Honda DX ‘92 which i got ideas on the restoration plan. I made my kiney new look by adopting Dilip's(Deville_56) mighty kiney. Then Febil_k.i my friend (also a TAI-ger) who inspired me on the work and helped me a lot for me in finding spare parts, good mechanic and painter,etc.
It is a kinetic zx, black colored with grey body panels made in 1999. The restoration is in the memory of my father as he used it from 2k until he fell ill. He brought her home with pride in 2k. The legacy 2stroke scooter.
After his death my parents and relatives tell me to sell it and i tried hard to save her. Later it is used by one of my cousin and he screwed her. From then for 6 month time it is parked in our porch untouched. As the retest for kiney is in the april i've to make her alive and repainted.
Febil told me about restoring kiney and we've decided for a classic restoration. As we've to complete the work fast and due to some reasons we decide to do the work outside.(first decided to do it ourself)
The mechanical problems with kiney are
*battery is dead so no self start.
*she need 6-10 kicks to start.
*very less pulling
*autochoke is dead
First i bring a mechanic near my house to check her. He told me to replace the kicker assembly and decarbonize the silencer to make her alive.
He show me the kicker wheel which gets really weared.
The mech give me list of things to purchase and they are
Kicker lever 145
Kicker wheel 198
Kicker shaft 170
Rubber bush 60
Kicker spring 18
Cotton waste 10
Total spares costs rs.670.
He replace the assembly and clean the carburettor with a charge of rs.600
