    Hello! New here and just picked up my first Elan this past weekend. I’m familiar with the 250s, but ended up getting my hands on a 294 twin that has ended up being pretty hard to track down info for. Interested in: 1. From what I’ve seen 294s were in SS models and released in 1974 (not 1973...

    Hey I have a 250cc single elan and it runs like brand new, does not bog, and sounds aweosme. But if it doesn’t start first pull then it doesn’t start. I have read that this is the float sticking or a problem with the needle valve. Am wondering if this will work as a replacement carb or if anyone...

    Swapped the 250 twin for a single in my 78 elan dlx, reused the carb from the twin (hr-172a) it starts easy and idles smooth, but it wont rev past 1/3 throttle. It's just enough for it to move but noe more. Plug is black and wet so it seems like the motor is flooding. My first thought was that...

    Hey I am in the process of rebuilding my Rotax 294 twin and I have a question about the distance ring on the crankshaft. This ring slides over the crankshaft and has the seal slid overtop it. Am I supposed to use any retaining compound to secure the distance ring to the crank? I don't want any...

    Hi DooTalk, I've been having some trouble with my '82 Moto Ski Spirit (basically an Elan 250 single with an orange hood). The machine starts and runs great, takes off okay but doesn't want to accelerate past about 10mph. Once it's moving, no change in speed from holding it at half throttle to...

    I have a 1973 250 single cylinder elan. It starts fine in the warm weather -like in September - but hard to get going once the weather turns cold. When I try to start it, it wants to go, but it seems to be sending too much gas to the cylinder and flooding the spark plug. Sometimes it gets...

    On the 8th of January my wife came across an ad for a '71 Elan 'project' and suggested it would be a good way for me to pass time this winter. I wasn't too interested at first but after thinking about how many people I have overheard over the years recounting fun times on their Elan I figured...
