Cool pipe. Most kreidler bent pipes are black with chrome tip.

I’ve never seen a blue flory, most are orange.

Throttle twist is the same as any Puch and a stock Puch 12mm bing will work.

Re: new guy with new kreidler flory!

thanks for the throttle twist and carb info Boot 2Thehead!!

I do think it was repainted as I see some orange underneath :(

I measured the intake manifold and it's approx. 16mm so does that mean I Need a 16mm carb?

Yes, I Love that pipe too!! :)

Re: new guy with new kreidler flory!

The stock carb for your bike is a bing 1/12/260 with a 68 jet.

Look in the wiki section as it has plenty of good info on kreidler.

Re: new guy with new kreidler flory!

I found a real sweet lookin bing 1/12/293 with a 72 main, whats the difference between it and the 1/12/260?

Looks like the switch's are janked. Kreidlers have a hi-lo beam headlight. Check headlight for a dual filament bulb/socket.

Also remove both chains, and shocks, and rear wheel, to check for swing-arm play/slop. Every Kreidler I have seen needed swing-arm bushings.

Use only 20w, or 30w non-detergent oil in the tranny, or risk the clutch linings falling off.

Re: new guy with new kreidler flory!

thanks very much Downhill Harvey (OFMC)!!! great links!!

Re: new guy with new kreidler flory!

hoping someone could steer me in the right direction regarding my throttle, bikes I've worked on usually have a 2 piece collar that holds the throttle tube from sliding off the bars... I checked the parts manual/diagram and I don't get it, nothing like what I expect, do I only need the throttle tube and grip and I'm good?

Re: new guy with new kreidler flory!

Welcome to the site! I’ve always loved the look of a Kreidler.

Re: new guy with new kreidler flory!

Kreidlers sold in the states are not fast, but I love the way they ride.

Nice score Greg!!! Finally another North Bayite.

Re: new guy with new kreidler flory!

Nice score!!

I disagree with the needing bushings, I've owned several bikes and never needed em. But if you decide to do this, you can buy replacements from several locations, or take measurements + find brass bushings from a hardware supply company:

All you need is a throttle tube

i checked, mine is magura controls, so i linked examples so you could see the odds and bobs involved, twist tube and grip are needed, as long as your cable and adjuster are ok.

Re: new guy with new kreidler flory!

thanks ken and glenn!! I think I found a youtube vid that shows whatever twist and lock method magura used
