I do not know the Maicos well, and like it was pointed out, Gavin Williams will. Has he not commented somewhere else about this Maico? It rings a bell.

Bought an MT 5 on eBay. Needs a bit of work. Been in storage since 1997 so probably a fair amount of work. Think itís a 92 model. These hondas were sold here from 1979 to around the mid 90s.

So after a week of polishing a cleaning on Friday I did an oil change. An took carb off. Bike has been stored since 1997 an not run. Has 12000 miles on it. Carb inside was a mess. Layer of varnish gunk an everything blocked. Cleaned as best I could. Main jet was completely blocked so took a bit of coaxing.

Saturday put it all together. Rinsed tank. Bought cheap 2 smoke an went out to get fuel but got side tracked at a mates.

This morning he came round. 3 kicks no life. 4th kick a lil life. 5th kick the eagle has landed. What a feeling. Rode it up an down the road. Easily does 30 so think itís already been de restricted.

2 things. Bike only runs and idles with choke on.
On the overrun there is a discernible knock sound. no vibration though so could be bearing, piston slap or a fuel ignition knock.

Will strip it all down an measure.

Forking lekker feeling bringing something back to life.
