Just Got a Puch Magnum, Help me Upgrade it!

Hi,

I just got a 1979 Puch Magnum XK. I don't have a lot of money since I am in college, but I know I will need to upgrade this baby a bit, since it's a hog at startup.

I have a E50 engine on there right now.

My speedometer is broken, but I know I'm lucky if I am breaking 30 mph.

I am thinking about getting the 15 mm intake from Treats HQ for $14, I think that's a minimum since I believe mine has a 12 mm intake.

I don't know whether to go with a Bing or Dellorto Carb. I have a Dellorto on my Tomos, so I am used to that, so that's what I am considering.

I also need to get a Performance Exhaust, but from what I read, it is hard to find one that bolts up to a stock Magnum Cylinder.

What are my best options? I want something that doesn't totally suck at acceleration, and can get up to about 40 mph. Is that feesible without a kit? I don't have money for one yet, but I plan to do it down the line, so I figure I should get a bigger intake, carb, and exhaust.

Let me know your opinions. And yes, I did search, unfortunately, there is not a lot on Magnum performance on a stock cylinder.

Thanks in advance!

The Best Performance upgrade to puch magnums is giving it to me.

don't know how much you're willing to spend but i have a very nice setup for sale.

on ebay i have my new 20mm dellorto phbg. i also have a 64cc polini kit WITH the malossi 4 petal reed intake manifold already attached. less than 20 miles on it.

the polini alone was $246, the malossi intake was $55. i could sell the combination for $225 shipped. email if you're interested

also have a proma gp pipe that will work of course for sale. that i'd sell for 85 shipped.

i can make your moped move the fastest it's ever moved and then straight into my garage.

carb work, air filter, and exhaust + tuning could probably go ~45 with a little work.

USE THE WIKI drrh.

Re: Just Got a Puch Magnum, Help me Upgrade it!

Make sure you have a square port E50 before buying that intake...

Re: Just Got a Puch Magnum, Help me Upgrade it!

or, you could match the intake to the round port, of thats what you have.
