Re: How to start 1978 puch

To start your bike (assuming it's in running condition) you get on the moped and start peddeling. There is a black plastic lever on the left-side of the handlebars( it's under your brake lever) Once you have started peddeling pull the black lever, this engages your engine. after you pull the lever hold it and keep peddeling untill you hear the engine come to life, then let go of the lever. Thats pretty much it, the black lever (clutch lever) is used just for starting, so don't pull it while your bike is already running. Also make sure your fuel is "on" and your engine switch is in the "on" position. It may help to prime the carb and/or engage the choke if it's cold outside.

The throttle is also involved. No throttle = no gas to engine.

i think your going to need a fuel petcock if you didnt put one on after that pic was taken

Re: How to start 1978 puch

make sure your healight fluid is filled or your tires might pop.

Re: How to start 1978 puch

yes. It would appear that you need a fuel petcock and some gas line. A inline fuel filter would probably be a good idea.

As it is now, that g-ride wont fire up as there is no way for the gas to get to the carb.

ya i bought a new petcock for it after i took the pic maybe i should have put on there before i took the pic so i didnt get ripped on hahaha
