A couple of things

Alright, I had posted earlier, like a week or 2 ago, about the mixture screw. I got a new one, a friend of mine fixed a gas leak and now my moped is finally working. But since I found this site, I have an oppertunity to fix a thing or 2 still with my moped.

I own a white 1984 Honda Spree, the big problem I have with it is the speed-o-meter, it doesn't record miles or tell how fast I'm going, I presume that most of you guys might know what the problem may be, so I'm open to hear any ideas that you guys have.

Secondly, I've drilled 3 holes in my muffler, 1 near the front, one in the middle, and one in the back. It's loud as hell, which I like! But the only problem now is that I'm getting a lot of backfiring, and a lot "POP" type sounds, any ideas?

Third, is there any really simple ways I can get my moped going faster, beacuse right now the fastest it can go is about 27 (which was clocked with a friend of mine driving side by side to detirmine it), is there anyway I can get it up to even 30-35 so I can faster out in the country roads?

Your spedometer is mechanical. Verify that the cable is not broken. Second, disconnect the cable from your wheel, and hook it up to a drill --does the spedometer work? If so, the drive on your front wheel is probably shot.

Call your local Honda motorcycle dealer for parts as you need them --they might not be available anymore (I know I can't get spedo cables for my PA50 anymore).

An alternative: put a digital bicycle computer on your moped. Digital spedometers are <b>way</b> more accurate, they keep track of your maximum speed, average speed, and best of all --they have a trip odometer function which is great for keeping track of fuel.

I think the popping you hear in your muffler is just a result of drilling holes in it. If you've ever driven a car with a bad exhaust, it'll make some pretty surprising noises that you probably didn't realize it made. Cover up the holes if you want your moped to stop farting.

Chris seems to covered anything I could have helped with. Maybe noone here knows how to make your model of ped go faster.
