Has anyone done this?

Has anyone put a torque converter that people use on go karts and mini bikes such as this one onto a single speed moped like a puch e50 or something, I just remembered that these existed and immediately thought "hey what if I put one of these on my moped" just curious

Re: Has anyone done this?

Considering that the e50 has a wet internal clutch, no.

Re: Has anyone done this?

i mean, add-on variator. i know people talk about it fairly often, dunno if anyone's actually done it.

That is made for a 3 hp minimum engine. It's heavy steel and 5/8" shaft. I guess if you think you have enough power to activate it then go for it. I bet it snaps the crank if you do get it to work.

Re: Has anyone done this?

I have been meaning to do this for a long time.

I donot think anyone has done it yet

Re: Has anyone done this?

the torque and tuning parameters for them are way off from moped spec.

most of those things are 'all in' by 3000 rpm, moped stuff doesn't even start to variate until 5-6000

Re: Has anyone done this?

If they variate early as Motzing points out you may be able to power it off the counter shaft on a Puch rather than have to do away with the Puch gear reduction that would be omitted for the tuning of a moped style var

Re: Has anyone done this?

yea, i think you could make it work, but even the cheap ones are more money than i wanna put into mediocre gains where more usable improvements can be made much more simply and inexpensively

HOWEVER I also regard ingenuity much more highly than bolting shit on. i'd love to see it done. i'm more than likely not going to do it myself tho

Re: Has anyone done this?

those comet torq a verters are total shit

these are heavier duty and made for 2 stroke engines my buddy has one on his motorized bike and it works great a bit cheaper too
