I used the seach onn the forum before deciding to post and found nother to directly answer my question so here goes.
I was talking to some guys in their garage and noticed a FA50 sitting in the "project pile". I offered to buy it and he said after getting it fixed up he'd name me a price. He told me that he heard from his freind that the piston rings need to be replaced frequently and weren't designed for long term use.
Are the piston rings something that burn out after so many miles and need to be replaced often?
I don't have a moped yet and hope to start my own swarm soon.
Thankyou for your time.
