awesome! i got my uncle to help fix the garelli!

sweet. my uncle was the one who got the garelli running for me at first. i dont know what he did but he did it. it wouldnt idle and lately its been giving A LOT of problems. the bike started going at no more than 10mphs at max throttle. anyway, i told him about it and he stopped by today and took everything out. there was a scratched up bad piston...and a scratched damaged head. he asked me for the # where i get my parts from. i think hes even going to buy the parts i need. its nice of em..but with his help ill get the garelli running like a charm. :)

Re: awesome! i got my uncle to help fix the garell

whoa! a new piston is $60?! i thought they ran for around $20. no way im going to be able to replace it. im short on cash as it is...

Re: awesome! i got my uncle to help fix the garell

the piston is one of the main parts...

and didnt you already change the rings for it?

thats what u get for running 1.5 ounces of oil in your gas instead of 3

Re: awesome! i got my uncle to help fix the garell

man take that nasty ass seat off and go get a nice bicycle seat or something while they reupolster yours.. or do like me and swich to a gel cicyle seat all together... makes mopeds look more sporty.. hehe

Re: awesome! i got my uncle to help fix the garell

I changed the rings, yea...but I think I might of ruined the engine/piston/cylinder by running it with too little oil. I have an extra engine...but I dont have an extra piston and the other cylinder head is damaged too..

Re: awesome! i got my uncle to help fix the garell

That was a jerk comment..

Re: awesome! i got my uncle to help fix the garell

Would you be more worried about getting the bike to run or changing the seat?

Re: awesome! i got my uncle to help fix the garell
