50 mph morini dead??

so on my ride home tonight i lost my second gear.

havent opend it up yet to check it out but i am gonna rebuild it in the morning. hopefully i can get some pics of the engine apart cause god knows no one has ever seen the inside of these things.

i have put 2,816 miles on this ped sence i kitted it. so im glad it was the bottom end and not the kit. they havent made these kits in 15 years. but i will keep you all posted on the rebuild

Just might be the springs are toast.

Did you hear it anything.. like metal to metal sounds?

Take the oil drip stick out so you can get the side cover off.

Them mo1/mo2/MOk reedvalve conversion kits for the Franco Morini engines are ... super duper nice quality since there made by Gila ;) I bet a nice port match is a sweet addition to this kit.
