Re: how fast is your ped?

Re: how fast is your ped?

Moped Game Sally Struthers /

installed sealed bearings today added 2mph bringing the top speed to a sustained GPS confirmed 62mph. i think with a larger jet, a little more porting, perfect conditions, i think i can hit 65...on a 65 metra. that's the goal.

Re: how fast is your ped?

holy shit!

you have a drag ped lol

should i get a airsal or metra?

Re: how fast is your ped?

55 on a Moby. All day. At 3/4 throttle.

Not sure my crank and bearings can take much more. But...it probably has 60+ in it.

Magnum? not much more than 45-46.

Re: how fast is your ped?

Re: how fast is your ped?

why?

Re: how fast is your ped?

because if you have no proof, well then you're a lier

Re: how fast is your ped?

my stock tomos streetmate goes 34 magellan gps told me and when i put 22 tooth sprocket on the back i got up to 36-37

Re: how fast is your ped?

a gps could be wrong too

Re: how fast is your ped?

actually, no, it cant be wrong.

Re: how fast is your ped?

that hurt

Re: how fast is your ped?

65mph

Re: how fast is your ped?

I'm sure it can be but the chances are low.

Re: how fast is your ped?

just as low as running stock tires and speedo

Re: how fast is your ped?

so btw did you have a tiny tach on there for that 70mph ride? by my count, you must have been running at least 13k rpms, no?

Re: how fast is your ped?

r u saying u don't believe my top speed

Re: how fast is your ped?

no tiny tach. I have one but havent hooked it up. 13000 sounds pretty high for 18x36 gearing, but I have no idea the math on that or any clue as to what my rpms may have been.

Re: how fast is your ped?

lol rather than do the math i'd build a super bike buy a tiny tac and a gps and read both when I was going 70mph

Re: how fast is your ped?

I promised rafter I would hook my tiny tach up and give him some results. Hopefully this week. I am waiting for my clutch to come cause mine is now totally toasted.

Re: how fast is your ped?

did someone say math.....

Not sure if it's a 1 speed or 2 speed, but here goes

On a puch e50 with 18 x 36 gearing with standard 17" tires would need around 10,800 rpms. Seems plausible to me. My ped would need about 5 miles to get up to that speed with that gearing, but it's possible.

Elliot, call someone and take a picture with your cell phone of both the tiny tach and the gps at 70 mph. Much safer :)

Re: how fast is your ped?

For the record, 13,00 rpms would get you 84.2 mph with the same setup, but I am pretty sure you'd catch fire or explode at that speed.

Re: how fast is your ped?

10,800 sounds doable. Now you guys really have me wanting to get my tiny tach working.

It's really hard to be in full tuck, fullthrottle, position and look down to see a gps, let alone take a picture of it, but I'll work something out.

Re: how fast is your ped?

dude, helmet cam(please tell me that at 70mph on a moped you have at least a helmet and hopefully full body armor) with gps/tiny tach attached to it. Then you don't have to look. Just tuck, let 'er rip and check the film!

Re: how fast is your ped?

I had a helmet on, and gloves, and a flannel. That was about the extent of my protection. It was on highway 1. Its really not that unstable or scary as everyone makes it seem, but maybe I am just stupid and shit like that doesnt seem to bother you after you crash a motorcycle going 85.

It was GPS'ed but I didnt have a tiny tach at the time. Helmet cams tend to be junk, and i doubt it would be focused enough to read the tiny numbers on the GPS and tiny tach. But who knows.
