84 Puch maxi

This two speed thing, is this just part of the engines process in speed or is there is there something Im missing in order to increase speed and/or power

Re: 84 Puch maxi

It's a two speed automatic transmission. The first gear is lower for good pickup, and when the engine reaches it's shift point it automatically goes into a gear ratio that is the same as a single speed. The only advantage the two speed had was better acceleration, it's tradeoff was that it was more complex than a single speed hence more prone to breakdown.

Hi,Brian! Surely another advantage is hill climbing,isn't it?

Re: 84 Puch maxi

Yeah, sure, I guess, although the Technical data sheet says a 12% grade for either model, my best guess is the two speed would just do it quicker.

Re: 84 Puch maxi

Yep,Brian! If you're bulky like me,with only 50cc,gears are your friend,I'd say.That's probably how the little Honda 50 of 1964 vintage got around so well.Of course,it's not what I'd call a `ped.
