Sachs has no air box - will it run?

So I have this moped, sans airbox. Will it function, or is that engine suicide?

It'll prolly start, run poorly and lower the life span just by inhaling dirt.

You can test it for running, but it is really set up to use the air cleaner.. don't try to get it adjusted right without it...unless you don't like the ped.

Re: Sachs has no air box - will it run?

Dont know anything about Sachs (so you should probably listen to 50plus),.... but I got a Puch cheap and not caring too much about the ped never put a box on it. I have ran it 500 miles with no air box with no ill effects showing yet? (Note: I have never got it over 25 mph, so again take my advice with a grain of salt)

Just my 2 cents...

what can I clean the airfilter with? compressed air just isnt doing the trick

Re: Sachs has no air box - will it run?

Why not just replace it, Mopedwarehouse has the best price. http://mopedwarehouse.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/36_60/products_id/161

Heres a tip, Make a foam pre-filter and your air filter will last longer.

Sweeet!

Re: Sachs has no air box - will it run?

ya it will run but not well or cleen. If you can like tape the air filter on that would work but you still wouldn't be getting the full power you could goe out of it.

Re: Sachs has no air box - will it run?

mine runs fine without an airbox. its just louder.

Re: Sachs has no air box - will it run?

Both of mine have run better without an airbox. But i know some peoples mopeds barely work at all without one.

Re: Sachs has no air box - will it run?
