Thanks for taking the time to do that.
My pleasure. Let's do Kristin's.
I might try this on my Moby with the 15.15 on it.
Good post dude!
Word... Big upjet goes along with this...
I'd like to know what intake that is. it looks good.
It's a cut, stock Puch exhaust header with a piece of 7/8 handlebar welded on the end and trimmed to fit the SHA manifold... Ryan form the Bandits made it for me. It fits and seals perfect... Forward facing and rad for the Puch.
that's rad. Thanks for the write up, I had a sha filter laying on my tool box so I tore it apart. Thanks for distracting me so I don't have to work on cars.
Oh shit did I toss that old gnarly mesh filter, I wanted to try this.
How many number up jet do you guys think with this mod?
thank you sir. lookin good.
I have been considering the same thing.
good to know it works and has been done.
That's a good question... I started with this filter mod so I'm not sure about how many from stock....
hey chris, thanks for the tips. um do you just ditch the black cone-like cap peice? also what kind of improvments can i expect?
Yeah. That cap will restrict some air flow... As far as gains, it really depends. The first thing that I do when I get a moped is derestrict everything and upjet... Would I do this to a stock moped? Yep. Is this better than using a queer looking uni filter? Yep...
Nice work! I might try this... if I ever make my stupid POS Dellorto work...
Thanks. Why can't you get it to work?
It's just leaky. I'm working on it.
Get a different intake... You aren't trying to use that shitty Malossi intake on a Puch are you?
Chris, will this work with uni foam material, cut up the same way? that's the cheapest stuff I can find in sf and I can make two filters out of it.
you should be able to but don't squash the foam too much or it will restrict it. ideally you don't want to squish the foam at all..
Got it, not sure how thick that stuff is.
Usually the foam on one of those uni's is really thin... Like Tim said, if you use a thick piece like with a lawn mower type foam filter and then smash it, you will restrict the flow... But I'm pretty sure the foam on those Uni filters is thin... You probably want it to be about 1/8 - 1/4 of an inch thick.
If it's real thin I guess I could double up. Anyway, Elliot recommended using that stuff taped over the filter so it would probably work well with your mod too.
I just cut up a 2.5" imitation uni filter and it fits perfectly. no need to double up. I just need to order some jets from Treats now. Thanks Chris!!!
i did this filter mod with a piece of a green scrubby dish pad as the filter(test whatever non filter material with gas first!) and dremmeled out an octagonal hole in the center of the metal screen. works great. i had to up jet significantly. better throttle response etc.
it's nice to finally see a picture.
I need that for my bike, but I lost the wire mesh thing a while ago.
do you have one laying around?
how much should i have to upjet with this?
