1978 Moto Guzzi Robin

Hey! My first post here,but definitely not the last. I have a Moto Guzzi robin that sat for a long while under cover. Not used to bikes at all so this is all a new venture to me,but am not going to let this bike beat me!

Been slowly rebuilding it, got an upgraded carb, new throttle cable, new tires n tubes, changed the crankcase oil, and flushed the tank with some muriatic acid.

Currently waiting on my new fuel tap from Italy.

I tried to get it to catch today by putting some fuel into the piston, putting the plug back in with stock gap and holding the throttle open while push starting and nothing. I have the brake light wires grounded to the frame so there's spark, but certainly it's not consistent enough. It'll spark once every couple of rotations.

I'd assume this has to do with the stater/flywheel area? I'd like to get the stock engine running, but not against throwing it in the bin.

I'm even in the market for any parts or a whole engine for it ( or swaps )

Thanks! Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Cleaned and or set your points yet?

Re: 1978 Moto Guzzi Robin

Maybe lay down a sheet or some cardboard so all your parts and tools are not lost in the pine needles...

Have fun with the rebuild! Keep pics coming of your progress.

Treatland.tv is the closest parts store to you, order from them in the future so you don't have to pay eBay prices from out of the country.

Also if you haven't filed your points that's your problem 9 times out of 10 with weak spark

And , don't just file the points . Clean them afterward . Brake cleaner works well , followed by a clean dollar bill between closed points .

It only takes a fingerprint to foul points .

I read about doing that, but don't know how to properly do it. My stator looks pretty beat up too.. the blue wire at the bottom feels like it has also disconnected.

Checked treatland. They don't really have much for straight fit robin parts and not being in the game long I don't really know any cross fitting parts😟

Most moped parts are interchangeable with others. If you remove the flywheel you probably have a Bosch stator under there, which basically every moped has.

Re: 1978 Moto Guzzi Robin

Would this work for my Dansi 101441 stator? It looks very similar

Re: 1978 Moto Guzzi Robin

Possible to remove flywheel without puller? I have one on the way,but it'd be nice to get it off sooner.

Wait. You can mess it up.

Bennelli g2 is the engine. You probably just need a Condensor. And them old switches need cleaning.
