Oh yeah it is in German and English  ;)   Be careful of those    "explosion chart views"...... :D

Re Fuels and oils, better to ask the Maico aficionados on here. Cheers Tim754

I may not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

 enlarge for print out?  I use Firefox as my browser not Windows so maybe this may not work for you, I just put the cursor on, then click the page I want. It opens in a new window at full size. Then I just print that page.
 Also does your printer have a page setup section? (It should have...) Find it and enlarge the print out maybe?
Will see if I can create a PDF file of links photos, but don't hold your breath or farts....

Ask someone/anyone that be there with you Pete to help , You will be amazed at what the even the most "untechy" person will know on the dreaded compoota , printer front. ;)

and Paul's prints are neat gear! ;)

Maico 1983 sidecar tuning
« Reply #9 on: December 05, 2014, 11:26:33 AM »
I had a 490 Maico enduro outfit

We put 6" into the top end of the pipe to make it more torquey

Drilled a small hole in the front of the piston to oil the exhaust bridge

That was it!
