I have my first moped for about 4 months now, a sachs foxi. I'm sold on mopeds and want to get more already.
I had a question about engine speeds on my bike though.
It seemed when I was riding that there was often a disparity between the speed I was going. I wasn't sure if it was because of different perspectives compared to other cars or hills or wind...but I often am riding on relatively flat ground and not too much wind.
Since the speedo is broken, I finally had somebody clock me and my suspicions were correct.
Sometimes the bike seems to max out at 20-24 and then out a random stop it then was going 30...then after the next stop back down a bit.
What would be the cause of this and what should i look into doing?
There is a ride down here in Orange County soon and I'd like to participate...though I don't want to get left in the dust if my ped is sticking at 22MPG.
