Fiddle 2 2008, 3 valve clearance sizes found in 3 manuals..
« on: August 17, 2016, 08:41:10 AM »
Hi all,

My name is Sander, 30 and from the Netherlands (so please excuse my English).
Since 3 days I own a Fiddle II 50cc from 2008.

As with all my new (secondhand..) vehicles I'm doing a thorough service, so new oil (10W40), new gear oil (75W90), new sparkplug, checking all electrical connections (including contactspray) and general cleaning (also beneath all the plastic), changing all vacuüm and petrol tubes and fuelfilter, cleaned the oil filter and carb, check drivetrain and brakes etc. I know you can go further (check for freeplay, steering etc. but if it feels right don't touch it!)

Still to do: Valve clearance check / adjustment.
But I'm finding a lot of different numbers and no build years in the manuals.

I now have found IN/EX (mm's):
- 0.05/0.10
- 0.06/0.06
- 0.03/0.05

One guy I asked, always does 0.10/0.10mm.
A shop just awnsered that I have to use 0.05/0.10.

Havn't checked the current clearances yet.
What's the right one?

Thanks :)

Per service manual . . "Valve clearance (IN/EX): 0.06±0.02 mm"

That's what I found, why is everybody (including a shopowner) advising 0.05/0.10?

And why are there several end user manuals that state completely otherwise?

I have to be sure about this..
