No Power

VespaCIAO /

I got out the 1974 Vespa CIAO Piaggio again tonight. She has no power. She will run fine and continue running, but no power. Could this be because of the muffler and no back pressure considering that I don't have a muffler? Any info is appreciated.

When I first got a moped I played around with the mufflers a little bit.

I found that if you remove the muffler, you get barely any low end power, because of a loss of backpressure. However I found that once my bike got up to high speeds, the bike would go about 3mph faster than with a muffler.

Get a good performance pipe...it makes a big difference.
