Puch Magnum XK 1 HP, I need to Upgrade!

I got a Puch Magnum XK 1 HP (Carb reading is 318) signifying the 1 HP, and I top out at about 20 mph. To me it's depressing that my Magnum is my slowest ped.

I know I need to get a pipe, and upgrade my carb to at least a 14 mm Bing, maybe even a 15 mm, but I'm wondering your input on cylinders.

I want to be able to do 40 mph. Is this possible by buying a 2 HP Maxi Cylinder, or should I just try to port? Or should I definitely go with a kit? Money is a big factor, I'm broke, and I may even sell my Tomos A3 to pay for parts for my Puch.

Thanks in advance,

Chris

Check to see what number your cylinder is.

hrmmm, puchs are really tough to get parts for, just sell it to me and kit out that tomos.

I will trade you for Penelope, the super sexual 50v (below). I will be back in the Chicago/Wisco area soon, email me if interested. If not, bolt on a K-star cylinder, either drill out your carb to 15 or buy a 14 off the B/S forum, and get a techno boss/bullet or proma gp. This setup is very easy to make happen, will get you tp at least 40, and will cost about $200.

Penelope's going to have some issues with those EBRs and no fork brace.

Haha, I know, she told me...i am going to recycle a fork brace from one of my fenders. Right now, cornering at any speed at all is an adventure.

Re: Puch Magnum XK 1 HPhttp://, I need to Upgrade!

those ebrs look kinda skinny!

but what kind of price do you have on penelope for a straight up sale?

Re: Puch Magnum XK 1 HPhttp://, I need to Upgrade!

Yeah, if you get anything at all to tie those fork tubes together it should help a lot!

Re: Puch Magnum XK 1 HPhttp://, I need to Upgrade!

Asian, I really want to trade it for a top tank, but I might consider selling it straight up. Where are you located? (to clarify, I am in CA, but that ped is in Illinois). If you are nearby and really want it, send me an email and maybe we can work something out.
