I have a 77 Puch Maxi-Luxe one speed, 14mm carb and intake, 50cc, performance exhaust. My bike runs great, but has a few issues. First, It takes a few minutes to get it started, a bunch of kicks. Once it's started, it has to run for at least 3 minutes before I can give it gas, or it will die. After I let it run for the three minutes though, it runs and idles great. I can turn it off, run into the store, or whatever, come back to it 15 minutes later, and it starts on the first kick. What could be causing this?
Also, I am about to put some mags on my Puch. They came off of a Magnum. I have a question though. The mag has a much smaller sprocket then my rim does. I counted the teeth, and I think it has around 36-38, i kept losing track of where i was (bad eyes). My original rim has a 45 tooth sprocket. How much of a difference is this going to make? I don't want to do it, if it is going to jack me on the hills, and pickup. What size front sprocket do the Magnums have, or would I need to keep my current ratio?
Any help would be sweet! Swarm and Destroy
