Little taotao's

Recommended Posts

I've got a couple of taotao 125's I picked up really cheap for the kids. I thought I would document some of the issues I have had and repairs I have cobbled, because obviously at this price point and quality level one cannot invest much in improvements.

 

First of all, if you are not mechanically inclined do not buy one of these. You will need a awareness of how things work, a willingness to take things apart, and the patience to do things more than once, because whatever you do you will probably be doing again at some point.

As is pretty common knowledge, every  bolt on these that can come loose, will. Get some locktight and keep it handy. do wheels, axle nuts, swingarm and front suspension right away, and anything else as you go through it, and you will go through it.

I got a 110cc Taotao.  Any idea how to remove or bypass the stupid rev-limiter??

I didnt see anything.  There is something coming out of the exhaust on my bike that I was going to take apart and look at-  seems almost like a valve....

I don’t see them having a rev limiter due to the low cost of these bikes so you may be looking for something that’s not there in the first place.

haha good point.  the only reason I assumed it had one is it dies if you peg it from a stop. like not bogs, dies.  but if I floor it after getting going, it hooks and goes..  My friend told me before getting it that I would hate it cause it had a 'rev limiter'.  first time I had heard of them.

I'll post a pic on my thread.

Get it running as best possable. Wash the shit out of it and hit it with some armor all and sell it!

I gave mine away  to a friend for his son only bc I was nervous about selling a bike that only ran when it wanted to. I didn’t want anyone coming back to me saying it’s a broken piece of junk! Very finicky.  It was a 50 cc bike. Still runs good but needs a new sp every other week. 

Be honest with the buyer and let them know there not getting a rolls Royce and its a good starter bike to learn on but needs maintenance to keep it going.

      Hello Guys!
      Dumb question. How much oil registers on the oil level gauge while running? The oil level reads correct when off, but while running I can only see just a little bit in the oil level gauge. Makes wonder if the oil isn't circulating well enough.
      Also, whats your preference in battery brands for ATV's (standard or AGM). We don't ride it all that often.
      Thanks in advance for any info.

      I'm working on my brothers' 2002 Suzuki Vinson 500 . It sat for a few years before I got into it. I'm concentrating on the carb - I replaced orings, needle, etc. and soaked jets, bowl and anything that I could get off the carb that the solution wouldn't eat. I also removed the tank and flushed it with hot water - it's clean. The gas cap innards rusted away and the tank had a lot of rust and water in it before I cleaned it. I replaced the gas cap and installed a new fuel valve because the screens were broken in the old one. The bike will run but spits and sputters and backfires. If you "open it up" it falls on its face and stalls - but starts right up. Here is a link to an exploded view of the carb: Ohio Honda Yamaha Motorcycle ATV Dealer - J & J Motors - Kawasaki Suzuki Scooter Utility vehicle, parts, accessories, apparel
      Can anyone point me in the direction of the problem? It may still be a "clean carb parts issue" . My problem is that the parts list doesn't identify the parts to a degree that I understand. If you said" look at the pilot jet", I'm not sure which jet that would be....See what I mean? It'll run very good if I remove the air filter and cover the opening with my hand and part my fingers a little for the air to get in. Any help is greatly appreciated.
      Thanks in advance, Jim
