So bottom line for LSV licensing in OR, just lie on the form and keep the speed under or at 25mph and no need for the LSV option? What was the cost/yearly and off road there are no worries about speed?
Mr Matt, we ask that you please join and repost. We apologize for the inconvenience but we do not allow guests to post on the Forum and must be erased.
To The Fool: Thanks for the reply & info. 1) If I could flag my post as a "New Post" it might get more attention and catch the eye of Missouri Reeper owners. I used the drop down "Actions" menu to try to mark it as a New Post. 2) I researched the Missouri State Codes, the former owner's State Codes, and the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations regarding the regulations of an LSV, so I could list the BODY STYLE as an LSV, but I wonder if a Passenger Car designation of a two-door (i.e. TUDOR) will put me in better stead to obtain auto insurance? 3) Thanks for the horsepower info; I really had no clue! One place I researched quoted 58 hp, but I don't know how they arrived at that figure. Again, thanks a million for your help!
In Missouri it seems that it depends on what county you live in and could depend on which license office you go to as for as your options on how you license it. One member here in MO said his only option was LSV while another member was able to put regular tags on his. Mo LSV laws only allow 35mph so if you're able to register as a two door car then you should. I would also think it would help somewhat on finding and keeping Insurance. I apologise for the delay. I thought I had replied sooner but apparently I didn't hit the button before I backed out of it
They may have went out of business. It's been a while back we had a dealer out west that was selling both the Durux and the Reeper. They commented on the forum that Oreion dropped them because of it and I believe someone else mentioned on the forum that Durux went out of business. That would leave them with no supplier. Now I can't say for sure that it was Arizona Motors, but I know it was a dealer out west.
That's a good question. I'll have to let the experts answer that. Higher octane is preferred but I have never heard anything good about ethanol. If you don't drive it often the ethanol will gum things up faster if it sits alot.
It seems to be worse now for some reason even with idle. I have only run 93 octane with seafoam to clear injectors. It is parked in garage so it shouldn’t have a moisture problem. It also seems to run worse when it gets hotter...the rpms drop and the power seems to go. The reeper only has about 400 miles on it now, but has never run as good as other reepers the same size. When I changed plugs, it ran a little better but has never ran as it should. I’ll try some of the ideas you guys mentioned but may have to take it to a shop. Like I mentioned earlier, I bought it with 50 miles on the meter. Thanks so much guys
When you initially ran the cleaner you said it improved. I would think you should run some more cleaner through the system. If it doesn't get better it is possible to have a weak coil pack that gets weaker the warmer it gets.
I posted earlier with the same problem. I changed my plugs to the platinum and loaded it with non ethanol gas. Added Seafoam. After a tank of gas, its been running great with an occasional hiccup of power loss. Mine has only 250 miles on iot but sat for over a year with the gas in it. I think it's finally cleaned out.
I do have an issue with fuel economy though. 75 miles to a tank of gas? WTF. Pulled the plugs again and they are dry but sooty. Any suggestions? What does everyone else get?
I think most are getting about 25 MPG. At 75 miles to 6 gallons your only getting 12. Doesn't sound as though it is completely cleaned out. I would replace the fuel filter in case it's partially clogged, check and the air filter. If that doesn't help try unplugging the O2 sensor to see if there is a difference.
I agree with lugnut. I would double check for spark to that cylinder. I read in another post you replaced the wires and I'm assuming the plugs too. You may have inadvertently cracked the insulator installing the new plug or it is possible to have a brand new faulty one. That goes for the wires too. After all pride in workmanship ain't what it used to be.
rc1006 and Bhoward, what kind of gas are you using? Does the motor run smoothly at idle or have a miss. Or just a hesitation when you hit the gas? The more info you can give us the better understanding we have of what could be wrong.
Has anyone tried the "stretch cv boot"? I may use a couple of these until I can lay the machine up and fix it properly. I did do some more parts research and found CV boots listed to fit the 2011-2015 Sand Reeper. Do any of know what the difference may be,,if any?
The 2011 to 2015 will be two door with 800cc motors. I don't remember you saying what your machine is. I believe the 1100cc machines have a heavier axles but I maybe wrong. If you go to the bottom of the home page you will find the dealer section. Suncoast is a dealership and may have the part you need or maybe able to tell you what will work. I'm sure as a dealer they have run across this before. Please keep us informed.
If you scroll down to the bottom of the home page you will find a list of dealers that can help. Silver bullet and Suncoast will probably be two best chances. You can also order one from Oreion. You might try and take your old one in to your local auto parts store 1st and see if they can find a suitable replacement.
