Remove & Cap Plug Your Honda Express Scooter Stock Oil Pump

Honda express nc50 oil pump plug / cap how to video. This short video will take you through the process of removing your 1978 honda nc50 noped stock oil pump and plug it with a rubber stopper you can pickup at local Pep Boys for less than $3. It is way easier than custom making a cap that might not seal correctly. In the video I show you how to plug the stock pump because I am changing the original moped intake to a WEAK-ENDS honda express NC50 NA50 mikuni VM intake.

Let us know what other "how to" videos you would be interested in seeing. Taking requests now...

Honda Moped KickStart Conversion | Express nc 50 1978 Scooter

Express moped kick start conversion is the way-to-go if your noped's starter spring is broken! You will not need any new parts, just a welding device to tack weld metal in place. Note: You will need to heat the starter spring up and rotate it 180 degrees. Then bend it out to make the kick start catch. Here are the steps (see diagram below for parts illustration):

  3. Remove the transmission L-COVER (white cover)
  5. Remove DRIVE PLATE
  6. You should leave the KICK RECOIL SPRING in the L-COVER
  9. Tack weld (aka spot weld) the STARTER DRIVE SPROCKET in 3-4 places. This will involve tack welding the STARTER SPROCKET to the STARTER RATCHET (see diagram 1-A below).
    1. How to "tack/spot weld":
      1. How does spot welding work?
      2. What is tack welding?
  11. Place the STARTER DRIVE SPROCKET you just tack welded back into place.
  12. Wrap the STARTER CHAIN around the STARTER DRIVE SPROCKET and other DRIVE SPROCKET (attached to CRANKSHAFT)
  13. Reverse STARTER LEVER/PEDAL and tack weld the PEDAL on STARTER LEVER
  14. Replace L-COVER
  15. Replace welded STARTER LEVER/PEDAL
Here is a video out-lining the steps you need to take inorder to successfully convert your honda's ratchet spring starter to a kick-start version in little to no time. Props to  for the YouTube post:

Moped LEDs Lights | Headlight | 6V/12V Super Bright LEDs for Noped Scooter

So, I've been thinking... Could I replace my current honda express moped headlight bulb with a SUPER BRIGHT LED blub? Well, we will find out. I recently ordered a

9 LED #68-x9 with 1157 base

from The measurements of the #68-9x bulb are detailed on the the following scooter LED specification image from the website: 

But that's a 12 volt LED bulb? Yes, that's right. Recently I "kitted" (ie. I replaced the cylinder and piston head in the motor) my NC50 moped and have been blowing out my honda 6v bulbs. My moped performance tuning caused me to go from a 49cc engine to a 70cc with no carburetor change.

You can only use one of these LED headlight bulbs if you have purchased a converted Honda express headlight.

Several forum posts from other moped owners have suggested converting entirely to a 12 volt electrical system, or... just swap the bulbs out with 12 volt ones. Personally, I have experienced problems starting my moped after having blown out the headlight. It will start, but not without LOTS of trying (and feeling like an idiot in the process).

So, all-in-all I am going to try replacing the standard honda express moped 6V 18/18W (fyi... 18/18W notation is for LOW/HIGH beam values of wattage). I'm going to try the "Cool White" led bulb with the following values:

Part NO: 68-W9
Emitting Color: Cool White
Operating Voltage Range Unit: VDC: 9~14.8
Current Draw @ 12 Volts Unit: mA: 13/44
Single LED Luminous Intensity Unit: mcd: 6300
Dominant Wavelength / CCT* UNIT: nm: 8500
Beam Pattern Unit: degrees: 15/100
Price Each Unit: USD: $4.99 (+shipping)

I don't know a lot about electricity, voltage, watts, amperage, etc... but it's worth playing around with. You have to pay attention when ordering... the moped light LED bulb needs to have a #1157 BASE. This allows you the ability for HIGH/LOW settings when using the bulb. I did order a 67-x15 with 1156 base (12v) for my tail light.

I plan to report back my findings. If you're smarter than me when it comes to electricity... you can purchase your own Honda express bulbs and parts here:
