Suggest you work your way through this...
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1USvziYIyzfyxfZA1YYpQf9eP4djb0GLWbvWcmME88Gk/edit#gid=1

There are multiple sheets on this spreadsheet on different topics, look along the bottom.

Hope it helps.

The slide may be placed in 180 degrees out. If you removed the slide and extracted the carbie, you may have replaced it back incorrectly. Ensure the idle stop screw is not aligned with the throttle cable slot. If it is put in the wrong way the idle stop screw has nothing to stop against. Hence no idle. You will also get air bypass. See pic. at link below. Idle stop at front of pic, throttle cable slot at rear of pic.

You may also have a failed manifold gasket. A little air makes a lot of difference. Check that the rubber o ring and the cardboard gasket are not buggered. If the cardboard gasket is torn you must replace. Trace and cut from a breakfast cereal box.

Hope this makes sense and is a help.

New header and exhaust installed.

And OEM carbie replaced with a Mikuni.

Apart from the installation of a baffle in the exhaust (to bring it to a noise level more acceptable) that does me for mods (I think).

Any suggestions? I'm keen to keep the engine stock.

Hi Acethusiasts,

after I tried to make my bike as clean as possible, I had a good idea. Throw the exhaust away. See first pic.

OK, just a joke. But I thougt, I have to to something for my powerful racing 50 cc monster-engine, I bought a exhaust tape. And this is the first try. OK, it is not the best, but it looks faster.

Have a nice day

Hello again everyone
The coffers for the ACE are very slowly trickling full, so I have decided that my plan is as follows
1. Buy a second hand 50cc ace
2. Swap the 50cc lump for a 125cc ( please see question below)
3. Complete all necessary upgrades (as described in this fabulous resource)
4.Fit a fairing
The question I have is ;
I'm going to buy a 125 lump and I want twin exhausts ( just for the look)
Should it be OHV or OHC considering I want to upgrade to 150cc and put on a twin exhaust head?
Any help would be appreciated as although I have a smattering of technical ability I would like to have as easy a job as possible although future servicing has to be taken into account
Your thoughts please 😇😎

Just a quick note
I've just found a brand new FM571 OHV single cylinder twin exhaust for £450 here:;

Answering your question with a question:

Why not go straight to the 150cc twin exhaust motor?

It almost certainly would work out cheaper than buying a 125cc, converting to 150cc, adding a twin port head.

 Crazy,
Thanks for the reply,
It would appear that I've solved my own problem inadvertently
Q. Do you think the wiring will cause many issues ??

Cheers

Wiring should be pretty straightforward, but you will probably have to organise new engine mounts for the 'Ace' 50.

Okay thanks
Another task to add to the list
I will keep everyone posted when it all starts
Thanks again, this resource is what convinced me that the ACE is the perfect middle aged project for me to sink my teeth and incredibly tight budget into
Now to let the missus know that a weeks camping in Cornwall is replacing the all inclusive trip to Spain
