While I was riding my Puch w/ the Athena 70cc Reed valve to work this morning my moped stalled and made some terrible pinging noises. After testing the compression I had 175lbs, that's good. After removing the intake I found I was missing a reed, that's real bad.

My piston and cylinder are fine, but now I have to drop the whole motor and crack it open to find the metal inside, and I fear what I may find. Hopefully it didn't grind up the gears. And I'm just posting because this totally sucks.
