SLOW PUCH

I can't get 2 of my puch mopeds to go over 23mph, one is a '76, one a '79. both maxis. I've got the throttle as tight as it will go and i also tried drilling out the baffle, nothing seems to work. My main puch cruises b/w 28-32mph no problem. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank You!

Re: SLOW PUCH

sounds like you have an air leak

do a compression test

then check your timing

could be a fuel restriction, dirty air filter, poor gearing, chain may be too tight, obstruction in exhaust, clogged exhaust, dirty head, too large of a head gasket, you may just have slow bikes too, try porting out your intake, opening up the airbox, just be careful how lean you go, you may want to upjet your carb if you are going to open up the airbox so you don't seize up your engine. there are tons of reasons bikes go slow. there are just as many solutions to make them go faster!

if i can be of any help shoot me an e-mail

sounds like you need to hop off and 'Puch' it faster...

btw it's pronounced POOK like book with a p instead of a b.

Re: SLOW PUCH

haha, still funny though.

I've pronounced it "poosh" since I was a kid...

Guess old habits die hard...

and "pook" just isn't as funny :)

BTW, I'm not slamming Puch's...wish I had one as my non-running Kinetic seems that it will never have all of the parts that it needs to get running again...

maybe Cosmotor will finally answer my emails about parts availability sometime this month (yeah right...)

I thought it was pronounced "pook" with the oo sound like that "poop" not "book".
