My fast Pinto

So I got my Moto Matic Mopeds 8p pipe this week and got my moped tuned. Went for a nice slow ride of 64 mph gps. Rafter, you rule!

This pipe took me from a steady 58mph with an occasional 60-62 blip to a steady 64mph. Now to upgrade my carb from a 19mm to 21mm.

Re: My fast Pinto

go big, go 24mm!

Re: My fast Pinto

Mike Rafter made the pipe. It is awesome!

Re: My fast Pinto

all specs please?

Re: My fast Pinto

yes Rafter is awesome, i love him. but, lets also give some love and respect to moto matics own Nathan Kiehn as well, he is our true unsung hero who does waayyyyy more for mopeds and our own gang than anyone i know. Mike and Nate are a duo and incredible people, don't forget that.

Tyler Jacobson /

it looks like you just bolted your tank to the frame. did you drill holes and tap them or run a bolt all they way and out the other side? thanks for the tips.

Re: My fast Pinto

Congradulations! I could hear your laughter in the background when Ryan told me.

Re: My fast Pinto

So how would one go about getting a pipe such as thus? Is there moto-matic website?

Sue i met you at the rally. You had a bad ass bike! it stomps the mb5 for sure

Re: My fast Pinto

Moto-matic is the very talented, very attractive, Nate and Rafter from the Landsquids. Contact them.

Re: My fast Pinto

Nate is the main man. I just answer the phone. Happily. :) Congrats Sue! You dont get to go that fast by buying a new pipe. You have some credit to take too.

Re: My fast Pinto

Holy shit is that an awesome bike!

Re: My fast Pinto

sue i totally miss you, and your stupid pinto because its soo cool

Re: My fast Pinto

Looks like Nickelodeon threw up on it.

Re: My fast Pinto

64 mph on 19mm of carb.

impressive.

Re: My fast Pinto

64 mph on 19mm carb on a metra 80, no less. Carb size ain't everything.

Re: My fast Pinto

Sick sick sick. I still want to see that thing rip. Every time I have ridden with you guys, you never show them off!

Absolutely. I just didn't know who all to thank. So also a huge thanks to Nate. The craftsmanship is amazing. When I bolted it on the fit was perfect.

_You dont get to go that fast by buying a new pipe._

So here is the setup:

80 metra-case matched.

19mm Dellorto carb

3 shoe clutch

stuffed race crank

moto matic 8p

A huge amount of time went into this and I am extremely happy with how it has turned out. I can hardly believe that I can go 64mph on a moped.

As for carbs, the Dellorto manual states:

-A larger sized carburetor generally allows more power at high rpm ie. a higher maximum speed. However, simply fitting just a larger carburetor may not bring about the desired increase in power output as this often only follows from several additional engine modifications, each designed to improve some other aspect of the engine's performance.

-A smaller carburetor will give better pick-up and therefor in selecting a choke size, you should always balance your power and acceleration requirements.

I started out small, and even with the 18x36 gearing and the pipe i have a good bit of bottom end left that I am willing to sacrifice for more top end. That has been my method on this entire build. I've been conservative on everything and then upgrade from there. Now I am amassing bits and pieces that I will be able to use on a different, less extreme build.

Dylan--We miss you too!!!

Lori -- Thanks. I couldn't stop laughing. This is insane!

The tank is mounted thru the frame with threaded rod and nuts.

Re: My fast Pinto

So rad, Sue! If my lanky legs would have allowed me to ride that thing, I definitely would have asked if I could at Bomb Prom.

Re: My fast Pinto

One other thing I forgot to mention, stock pedals will not clear the pipe. I added about 2" to the pedal shaft.

Re: My fast Pinto

now to break 65...

Re: My fast Pinto

The Best Coast is the Mid-west-coast! Go SUE!

Re: My fast Pinto

Nice job Sue! Sounds like youd be a strong competitor in the Lower Wacker Races at BROBQ V. You and Ryan comin?

Good Job!!!!

Sue won't race. I tried to get her to race all weekend at Kzoo. I understand not wanting to blow up yer shit, but really how many many people are doing 64? People borrowed my GPS in Kzoo and Cinci, nobody broke 60. Sue is the fast girls club. Race Sue, race!!!!!!!!!

Also, I heard something about you guys stopping by this weekend!?

Re: Good Job!!!!

mopeds are supposed to be blowed up!

Re: Good Job!!!!

Re: Good Job!!!!
