1976 maico 250
hi can you help me
I have a 1976 maico 250 and I took the left primary case cover off to clean the inside
When I took off the primary cover the gear shift arm snapped back and the kick start quadrant rolled back
Do I have to remove the primary sprocket the chain and clutch and re position
Everything befor puttin the primary cover back on
I got the kicker shaft back into position
Thiers an upper stop and lower stop on the inner case for the kicker quadrant to stop the quadrant is always in down position so when you kick it goes up then back down by way of return spring
Okay so thats fixed
Now I got to figure out how the shift shaft gets linked back up to the shift arm
Im mechanically inclined I had some coffee stayed up all night and figured it out
Thanks any way im all set now
Im pretty sure you have to pull the shift shaft out of the case set it up and then slide the cover back over it
I have suzuki tm 400 cyclone its easy to work maicos are a totally different animal

Maico 1973 maico 250 four speed
I recently purchased a 1973 manioc 250 and its fully restored and was checked over by me ( I'm a motorcycle tech) and it was starting like a breeze and running beautifully i went back the next day and put my new throttle cable on and went to kick the bike and it wouldn't start and it kicked back on me once or twice with a few little puffs i will change the plug and that should fix that issue but it almost seemed like it locked up. when i say that i couldn't kick it over at all but i stuck a chop stick down the spark plug hole and it wasn't seized i pushed the piston down a little and then i could kick it over but my question is what would cause that to do that? would it be in the primary side??

value of vintage maico bike
1959 Blizzard 250
My friend recently acquired a 1959 Maico 250 Blizzard that is in pretty decent shape, although it is dismantled. I love the style of the bike and would like to purchase it from him. He's the kind of guy that won't ever touch the thing and it will never get restored under his ownership. I know he'd sell it for $1500, but I want to make sure that it's worth that and that I can find the parts to restore it. What is your opinion and are parts for this bike still available somewhere? Thanks.

Maico Magnum 440cc 1978 For Sale
Purchased new from the famous "Wheelsmith Motorcycles" shop in Fountain Valley, California. Wheelsmith was known back in the day, as being the "Shelby" of motorcycles. Guys would have their bikes upgraded with factory approved modifications at the Wheelsmith dealership before taking delivery of them. As you can see by the pic of the original receipt here, there were a number of factory/dealer mods made.
Receipt reads: 1978 450 Maico, Eng# RT3380659, Frame# 3364762, W/E Pegs, Case Saver, Mud Guard, S'Stl Spokes (rear), Gas Cap, Case Split, Clutch Mod, Shim Trans, Port Cyl, Polish Linkage, Set Squish, Pin Main, Custom Pipe, WhirlPull Throttle, Terry Throttle, Terry Clutch, Fork Seal Mod, Drill Dampers, Size Cyl, Lighten Piston.
Original paperwork includes the Maico Magnum Owner's Manual, The Build Sheet (receipt), A handwritten note from Phil Smith on Wheelsmith Engineering letterhead that reads "Dear Mark, Enclosed is the Manufacturer's Statement of Origin with our endorsement to you. We have not had to get the notorization down here. However, if you need it in Oregon I'm certain the bank w (sic) some one will sign it for you. Hope the bike works out fine and you are winner. (signed) Phil Smith". Of course, the statement of Origin and title are included.
Runs excellent. Normal wear for an off-road vehicle that is almost 30 years old. Near new shocks. Was rode regularly up until last fall when new bikes were purchased for the household.
There are two small tears in the vinyl seat on the side. The pipe seat/seal (where it goes into the head) could use a stiffer spring. A bit of smoke comes out of there while
the bike is warming up. The shut off switch is not there anymore, just the wire. Touch the wire to the handle bar and the bike shuts off.
The case has the usual minor ... and the compression relief has been plugged.
