The magnum x e50 has a different angle for the kick start lever. So a regular kick start e50 lever will not work. I didn't want to order an expansive one from Europe so I started looking at other levers. I found a Tomos lever and it was pretty close.
I hooked up the throttle and kicked it over. Started right up. I rode it around a little and it is super fun. It has the power of a mild Hobbit Dr but has gears. So much fun, I cant wait to ride it more.
Picked up a crappy Magnum XK and got it running last night. It just needed a carb clean. Still have to adjust cables and general maintance, But it should be good to go. I will have to do something about the gas tank. Someone creamed it but its flaking out. I might soak it with MEK and melt it out.
I have also been working on my Mag X project. I got a little bendy air filter pipe so I dont get blowback. My last Mag X with a bing had horrible blow back so the back of the bike was all gassy and collected dirt. This should help with it.
Picked up a 78 Magnum from an auction. Looked pretty rough. When I got it home it turned out to be in pretty good shape. It has 347 miles on it and started with fresh gas. The seat is trash so Ill have to find a new one or make one.
