OK moped army community. A humble thank you from me to all of you for helping me over the past two years of restoring my Honda NU50M Urban Express from completely worthless to a now Rip-Roaring back from the dead Monster!
Special thanks to benji from treats, and IRE Rick! Treats hooked me up with all of the new components to get this thing cranking. But I was missing one part, a huge custom intake manifold to get max power. IRE Rick came through by sending me a huge fully custom prototype intake manifold that was everything I could have ever hoped for. He also threw in some goodies to help me get everything I can out of this scoot. Both guys are incredible moped tuners and all around standup guys, and I owe tons of gratitude thier way for so much help they've provided.
Also a huge thanks to everyone here on moped army. The knowledge in this website and community is HUGE. This was my first restoration of this magnitude, and I'm hooked. Next on the list is a legit moped, not just a noped.
Enough of that- Here's the pics!
Check out that High-Mount biturbo!
Low beams out, going to pick up another headlight soon
Yes folks, that's a rear bicycle reflector mounting bracket bent to spec to become an exhaust hanger. Since I had to use the old exhaust manifold to adapt the 2piece, I'm sure that I'm not getting full power, but I'm a fan of how it is looking right now.
IRE Rick's Prototype Intake-
I've since lowered the kickstart to not get that close to the air filter. It looks a bit close with the filter I had laying around, but clearance is sound. The oil pumps alsoo been completely pulled and replaced with an adjustable bung that IRERick was awesome enough to toss into the box o' goodies he sent my way.
Here's the dirty details:
70cc parmakit from treats
21mm phbg from treats
a big ol' filter from treats
custom IRE Rick intake manifold
92 main jet (gotta drop to 91 or 90, got a bit of fourstroke at top)
biturbo 2 piece tuned pipe
If anyone's ridin in Minneapolis let me know, I've got my wheels running strong.
