Hello Folks!

I am brand new to this forum and I just picked up a Honda Ape 50 yesterday that I would love to restore. I am also planning to take this home with me to the states when we get back. I am trying to figure out certain information on this bike, does anyone know how to distinguish the year from the serial number? If anyone specializes in Apes, I would love to get more info about these things! Cheers!

Hi not to change the subject but info on these apes are hard to come by and I’m new to mini bikes and working on them. This may be a really dumb question but do the ape’s have a battery? Somebody installed a HID projector headlight on mine and I drove it for the first time at night and couldn’t see a damn thing. I notice it gets brighter when I pull the clutch in and the engine isn’t under a load. I’m planning on getting rid of the HID but just am generally confused on its electrical system.

Thank you! Seems like a great forum to be a part of!

You know what I did and totally missed the wiring harness. Thank you. Do you think removing whatever HID projector for an aftermarket OEM style halogen will fix the problem? Because I definitely can’t drive it at night right now. If not is the regulator/rectifier the likely culprit?
