    I have this CEZETA scooter for over a year in my “place” to change the clutch on it.
    and now, I have found the time to get further on witth her restauration. I have just one situation here, I do not know exactly where to begin to get the engine out of it’s body…. can somebody tell me where to begin ?and how to get to it’s clutch to get it changed, because as a result of a flooding in one of my garageboxes, the clutch of it got sticked together and has to be changed by new plates, to be able to do this, need to see what kind of plates there have been built-in…..

    thankfull me

    Hello Johnny222,

    You may be able to get the clutch out without removing the engine but it would be a fiddly job. Easier if you had a lift for the bike to sit on. The clutch is located on the left side of the engine. You will need to remove the kickstart, gear shifter and engine fan belt, exhausts, cables etc. There are 4 bolts holding the front engine mount to the frame at the front of the engine and the 501 has a swingarm bolt (not a bolt like other scooters but a shaft with threaded bolts going through the body on each side) that basically connects the engine to the frame. Remove the rear wheel, brake cable and the whole engine and swingarm assembly should drop out of it. The drive train is in the swingarm assembly case. if you are going to pull the engine out you may as well look at the bearings, piston and rings. If this isn’t work you can do than you may want to take it to a good mechanic. Download the manuals from the site to see what goes where and what you need to do. You can get new clutch plates (and most other parts) online, just google it.

    Good Luck.
