Yamaha Majesty 125 old parts replacement

It is not easy to maintain a second-hand old scooter which needs a lot of love and effort, mine is 2003 model which is 15 years already and so it does need to replace lot of parts to keep it running longer. I have joined lot of majesty 125 group here in Taiwan and here are the list that they recommended to replace that can help extend the life of your old majesty 125.

  1. Radiator, Radiator Fan and hoses – it may be clogged already, water going in and out will not be the same.
  2. Full harness – wires inside some might have already broke off
  3. Thermostat – it have been used for 10 years it is about time to replace for a new one
  4. Ignition switch – some people have a habit of having lot of keys that’s why ignition switch may get damaged (loose contact)
  5. Ignition coil – it’s been 10 years and the efficiency will decrease as well, replace it to enhance ignition efficiency
  6. CDI – electronic parts unable to predict when it will break off which won’t make you at ease, replacing it after 10 years it makes sense
  7. CVK 30 (carburetor) – there are a lot of people replacing the original BS26 carburetor to CVK 30 to eliminate unnecessary problem and also can increase a little power
  8. Stator – replace it after 10 years is reasonable, i have encountered that my bike won’t start and after checking it is the problem of the stator
  9. Water pump – it may stopped working suddenly and coolant might get into the engine, you may refurbish it with repair kit or replace it for brand new to last longer

Above I have replaced radiator, thermostat and stator. While I was driving around I saw my coolant were leaking and after having it checked my radiator just gave up because it is leaking directly from the radiator (in Philippines it can still be repaired, here in Taiwan they replace it with new parts directly). I have replaced stator as well, when I was going to use my bike it wasn’t able to start may it be electric or kick-start. I hope this helps.

Yamaha Majesty 125

majesty 125

Yamaha Majesty 125 is a nice big scooter for a big guy like me, it was introduced in the early 90’s in Taiwan and until this day there are a lot of people still using it nowadays specially in Taiwan and if you check Facebook you can find a lot of groups for Majesty 125. There are also Majesty 125 in Philippines and I think it was imported from Taiwan as well but some of the parts is currently hard to find in Philippines. I have used Majesty 125 about 4 or 5 years ago but it’s not mine I borrowed it from my friend whenever I need to go to some places which is hard to park a car. Anyway, I got myself a cheap one but is still in good condition. It is a water-cooled scooter so you need to pay attention to water cooling system such as radiator and water pump that’s why I installed thermometer in able to monitor it.

I don’t have plan on buying Majesty 125 in Philippines due to the obsolete parts that might just give me a headache but overall it is a great scooter. For reference or you owned one, you can join Yamaha Majesty Club Pilipinas

Honda Wave 125s won’t start after washing

After having my motorcycle fixed I decided to wash it but after washing and kick-start it, it runs for a while and went dead. I kick-start it again and it just won’t start. I sms my mechanic and he said that the water might went into the carburetor and just kick-start it until it starts. I kick-start it for a long time but nothing happened, the next day I decided to drain the gas in the carburetor and bought a brand new spark plug. After draining the gas, I kick-start it again but still won’t start and I replace the old spark plug, I kick-start it again for about 3 times and it started! Well..this is the first time for me to troubleshoot a motorcycle and I am glad I was successful to troubleshoot it. I hope this could help those motorcycle owners that met the same problem. Ciao!
