N00b Haxors!!!

quick question for my boston bro's

Hey guys, it's annoying dave again with his stupid noob questions......

If there is like just a little bit of gas left in a moped tank, will this cause the bike to stall out a little bit. I use two stoke weed wackers and a two stroke leaf blower everyday and this does not happen with them....I was crusing tonight and kinda just coming to a stop. I could hear some gas splish splashing around so I thought it wasn't that. However I came to the conclusion that a moped bounces around so if there is just a little bit of gas, it might splash up the tank and not be getting used for the engine. Please tell me this is why I was stalling and not some other mystical problem. Either way, I'm making the pilgramage up to mopedjays tomorrow night and he's gonna help me out with a few things so I'm super stoked. I kind of feel like I'm john claude vandamn and I'm making the trek into the mountains to train with the mui tai master. I hope when I get to jays house though, I don't get my foot caught in a trap and am hanging upside down for an hour. (is kickboxer anyone elses favorite movie?)

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

Great!

We missed you and Miker on the last ride!

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

i am going to try to be there! my moped is still at mopedjay's but since tim can't seem to stop accumulating mopeds maybe i will get a chance to break another one of his.

Re: quick question for my boston bro's

drain tank, and rebuild your fuel petcock, the reserve is prolly clogged, and it will give you a understanding of how the valve works.

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

Sullivan & Sullivan,llp /

wicked pumped about wednesday, where abouts are we headed?

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

the things that happened thread is way to long and takes forever to load...

i just spent tons of time working on the new italian ped that a stranger randomly gave me for free today that I met while getting gas for my honda express.

i cleaned the dellorto 14.12

took apart the engine and cleaned all the ports... i ripped the paper base gasket so i made a new one out of paper gasket material i had lying around ...

the center stand was a little bit bent ... and then i put more weight on it and bent it a ton more ... i used a vice to bend it back and MIG welded some extra metal pieces to make it nice and strong and good as new.

put it back together and it has a nice strong spark...

I need a petcock that will fit this bike... anyone have a spare hanging around?

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

We meet at the Other Side Cafe on the corner of Mass ave and Newbury St between 6 and 7..

Its across Mass ave opposite the Mass Pike entrance.... looking forward to seeing you there!

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

i will have the new moby, which still needs a little tinkering. i may also have my batavus, so a friend can come. barring that, anyone have a second moped?

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

I have a couple but at current they are not very reliable. I'm going to tear down the express tonight and try to get it pretty again. I did some reading on case induction and I think my rusty reeds might be fudging shit up.....Rust is everywhere, i hate it.

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

Hey Jay, got a problem with those 2-ways...they only come with one charger! I'm going to buy at least one set today for Wednesday, but I'm not sure 4 makes sense just yet. Good news is, we can always get more later should we need it!

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

charge them off the power of your moped!nhey phil can you guys wait a bit for me wednesday?

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

Let's extend the meet time till Joe gets there...I don't think that will be a problem. So, we going to castle island or what?

Anyone Riding Today or Tonight?

Is anyone up for a ride later today or tonight?

It might be a good idea to ride a bit before the Wednesday ride to pinpoint any potential problems with your peds and get them fixed before the ride!

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

if we go to castle island i can ride the bat, as there arent any huge hills. wednesdays supposed to be th best day of the week. an extra half hour should not matter.

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

Bah, break in the Moby! We'd all like to see minty goodness representing!

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

Sullivan & Sullivan,llp /

i was actually gonna suggest castle island. my old hood...when it comes to hamburgers, take it from sully, you cant beat Sully's

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

i get outa work at 5 and can ride and chill around for a bit. I think my wheel bearing might be going shit. Someone should help me take a look at em.

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

yeah I got 2 hot dogs, a cheeseburger, fries and a coke for 7.50 the last time I was there last month!

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

sweet tim

yeah the petcock on that screws into the tank i think if it is you can use the same kind i just put on my moby and one on bones

they $4 at napa

Re: The Boston Ride Vol. IV

I will Justin... they usually go slow.. and then just seize up causing you to come to a screeching halt!

I have a set of sealed bearings I got that fit Puchs... not sure if they will fit your ped.... either way I found a place that sells em in Somerville... just bring in theold ones and they measure and match them up!
