With FA and FZ 50s, you have to have the rear brake pulled on for the
kick starter mechanism to engage. It is a safety feature to stop the
powerful little bugger from getting away from you as it fires up..lol

I just got a Suzuki fa50 manufactured in 5/84. Lets say its a 1985
model. It was free to me just to make some room in the garage where it
had sat long enough for dust and spiderwebs to take hold on it. The kick
starter spins freely without engaging (hints here are welcome , e-mail
me) I don't want to invest too much just to discover its a parts bike. I
am curious. Did this model have any "fatal flaw" which it was prone to
that made it undesireable for restoration. Also, how is the ride
compared to a TOMOS Targa/LX.
I am charging the battery and hope to attempt a cranking in a few hours.
I would much rather ride than tinker. It would be nice to have another
ped for a friend to ride along , which is why I lugged this clunker home
with me.
