Hi. Recently I paid too much for what was sold as a mint condition Malaguti moped but when time came to pick it up it was surely less than mint. It was not running but desperately I paid a local moped shop to get it running. Nothing else. It did come out running.Running horribly for what I paid for this repair. I think they just re-jetted from a 48 to a 50. To start it, I have to press the choke in and when attempting a pleasurable ride, it bogs down at full throttle or accelerates very slowly reaching a max of 23 mph. After a few minutes ride it stalls. I've tried removing the air box only causing it to stall earlier than I usually does. Mind you, the choke does release when I give it full throttle. I mean, I shouldn't have to start it with the choke in, right?The bike only has 900 or so miles on it.I would love to try to fix this myself since I have too much money into this to take it somewhere.I would appreciate any help. Also any other neccesary info would help. gas/oil ratio, crankcase oil type.....Thanks
Is this a two speed??????? I believe I have the american version of the 78 commuter which was a two speed but I'm not sure.
