I just got my hands on a '79 mobylette 50V. This is my first moped and I'm defintiely a novice with any type of engines.
I got the 25 mph model and on a good stretch of flat it barely hits 20 (according to the Moby speedometer). After riding it for a few hours the first night, it was running considerably slower on the second day, topping out around 10-15 mph.
The carb could use a good cleaning I'm sure, but I'd rather just buy a new Dellorto at this point. I'd like to get it running 35-40mph consistently with good acceleration. It's currently running off the stock Gurtner and the AV 7 engine. What's the best upgrades to get it running solid and a little faster at this point?
The first step I'm thinking of is pick up a 15.15mm Dellorto SHA Carb, replace some cables and throttle assembly, and slap on a new fuel petcock. Any suggestions/advice?
Once I get through those upgrades, I'd like to put on a performance exhaust and then, further down the road upgrade to the AV 10 engine and put in a speed kit. With thsi in mind, is it wiser to go with a bigger carb or will that not work properly with the current engine?
I'm already in love with this little fox and I really want to learn everything there is learn about her so I can get her nice and speedy.
