Newbie!

All right, so im just getting into this who moped thing! Its Awesome but i have a concerns that i need some good advice on. I have a 78 50v, dont know much more than that. Every time i ride it, it throws what appears to be greese particles all over my clothes. I think its coming from the clutch, any ideas how to stop that? I also want to make it go a little faster, im 215lbs and it doesnt do much over 20 on flat ground, what is the cheapest way to get some more power?

Re: Newbie!

Tighten your exhaust. Mine did that for a while. Get a Delorto 15/15 carb and a full set of jets Does it have a variator? If it doesn't, that is your problem. There are two kind of 50Vs, variated (fast), and Dimoby (slow) I have that carb set up on mine, I weigh 210, and I've clocked it at 37. With the jets, it cost me around $150.

Re: Newbie!

how do i know if it has a variator

Re: Newbie!

Hmm I thought all 50Vs were variated, hence the V out as well.

Re: Newbie!

You might be right Wiff. I am just repeating what I've learned. I swear I've seen a 50V Dimoby. I think it was made for the states. We should ask Peter in Grand Rapids. Willing to admit when I'm wrong.

Check your belt cover frame, sometimes the screw lug gets knocked into the belt and shreds it up leaving those little black particles on your clothes
