Building a Motobecane manual V1.0

Hey Everybody, I got tired of answering alot of questions about motobecane timing, so I started putting together an article. I would like to get some feedback/input/edits before I submit it to be posted in the articles section. If anybody wants to add anything, or write a little peice about motobecane repair, or performance tuning that would be great

Great job, nice explanations.

Re: Building a Motobecane manual V1.0

Hello,

I will try this on my motobecane that is currently not working. I'll let you know my results as soon as possible. In any case, I will post on the repair section the main issues I have with it if anyone can help, I'm not sure yet that is timing that it needs, but i think it should be checked properly in anycase.

Thanks a lot!

Felipe

The best performance hint for Motobecane owners is to get a 70 cc kit. I have them listed on my site.

Re: Building a Motobecane manual V1.0

Mopedwarehouse had a 70cc airsal kit for motobecane.

I don't know if it is any good

Re: Building a Motobecane manual V1.0

how many cc is the mobylette???

i have no manual so i dont know. i have 3 motori marini piston kits here and i would use them if they are the right size

the box says they are 40 mm. is that what i need.

(i dont know that i need to install one but to know that i had the one i needed would be nice)

also is there anything else i could use instead of a cam puller.

ill buy the tool but im just curious

Re: Building a Motobecane manual V1.0

49cc

moped_bandit,

There is no safe way to pull the point cam or flywheel without the special tool.

Mopedwarehouse.com has the tools, and they are reasonable (~$20)

Re: Building a Motobecane manual V1.0
