2009 Lifan 200 GY-5 Used
|Item status:||In archive|
THE GOOD: 2009 Lifan 200 Dual Sport. Street legal with clear Florida title. Bike is complete and clean. Very low starting price and worth much more if parted out. (If "The Ugly" is resolved the bike could return to normal which is quick starting, easy shifting, somewhat torquey, and smooth running thanks to the engine counter balancer. Since purchasing in 2012 bike had been as reliable as an anvil).
Engine oil was drained following "the problem". No metallic debris was found. Oil has not been replaced. Clutch cover was removed. No metallic debris found. Problem may have started in cylinder? Perhaps a broken ring?
THE BAD: Kick starter is jammed and will not turn over engine. (A new problem which came about with the major problem). Starts very easily with electric start; idles, revs, and shifts through all gears but then the "problem" surfaces.
THE UGLY: During last ride bike began to rattle (producing considerable noise) intermittently. Upon inspection (through spark plug hole) it became clear a metallic / hard object (unknown) had made its way into the combustion chamber leaving small marks on top of piston. Condition of cylinder, head, and valves is unknown. Oddly the "rattle" is not always present. Bike will run for brief periods (three plus minutes or so) and perform normally? Have no idea what is causing problem but it is serious and bike should not be ridden until problem is corrected.
Top end items for the China bike (piston, cylinder, head, gaskets, etc.,) are usually available on eBay at reasonable prices.
Owner available to assist in loading if necessary.
