www.maicowerk.com Just working on the 1982 Maico 490. 2 months ago I could no longer kick start it, I could only drift start it. It also stopped idling at low rpm. I cleaned up everything from air cleaner to carb. This is some of the stuff I am doing to it. Needs a new PVL stator regardless of why it is failing because its the wrong one. Also the front forks are leaking so I am rebuilding the ones on one of my 83s to put on the 82. Didn't rebuild the 82's just because I need to move that bike around the garage and the 83 is already parked in a convient place.
