Okay guys, sorry it took so long to update this thread. I have some up dates.
@Sabat: You are exactly right. The bike wants to idle lower than the carb will let it. It has the some of the same symptoms as a clutch that wont disengage. I have tried the slotting the slide trick (simular to the bing buddy hole trick) with okay results. I had a 17 bing laying around and decided to toss that bad boy on there seeing it was closer to my 16mm intake. BINGO, pun intended! I think I threw in a 71 jet, it was perrrrrfect idle first try. I haven't touched it since. Well, other than the carb slipping of. BLK BLK Shaun gave me a brass shim at the RVA rally, so I replaced the old carb spray can shim that I made with that one and its been holding steady ever since. But to sum it up, get another carb. Try a 14 bing maybe, or a 15:15 sha. But if you have a 17 Bing, its gold...
Okay, so after the 17 Bing this bike woke the fuck up... I could feel it wanting to go faster. So I decided to nut up and port the cylinder. There is a small lip casted within the window of the exhaust port. File that shit out. I used a dremel, but you do what you feel okay with. This helped me out a good bit on top end.
I still felt like shit could be peppier... I read and read about tuning the stock vario. I hear tell about lightening the weights too much and not getting its full variation. Well I don't want any parts of that. If she is going to be stock, she needs every stitch of top end she can get. Answer... LAUNCH LEVER, lol. the Polini on will bolt right on to the stock cases, just flip the hardware to make room for the nuts. Now you decide we your bike variates! Oh shoot, that guy is blasting you, "wuuuh WAAAAAAAAAAHH!!!!" Damn this hill... "wuuuuh WAAAAAAAAH!!" Granted this isn't for the lazy folks. You can tune the vario weights and do this with comparable results, I just dont care to. It's super fun to hold it in lower gear, and control the variation.
Okay, on to the external condensor. I will take pics of this tomorrow and do a write up on how to for the five coil. I know this will not help the majority of you, but its what I gots. I replaced this and the HT coil as a preemptive measure, as I don't like pedaling my moped. I had a coil left over from an old hpi set up, and I tossed it in there. It sparks awesome. I mounted it in the same place as the original, but moved it to the back side of the mount to clear the side covers. To insure a good ground, I ground off the paint here, and I ran some solid copper grounds to a head stud. Shit gets FAT spark. I have noticed a slight gain in performance from this believe it or not. The bike just seems to run smoother.
Okay, so with all of that shit done, I'm gps'ing my Pug at about 38 sitting up on flats. I can put my feet on the side covers and duck down some and get 40, easy. I took it to the RVA rally and it blasted. I'm so in love with this bike, I can't begin to describe. I have looked around for info on what pipe is best on a stock set up, and I haven't gotten anything solid, so I'm going out on the limb tonight and ordering a small circuit pipe.
Stay tuned for the five coil external condensor and HT coil replacement, the what ever pipe I buy review, and further porting on the cylinder!! I'm aiming at 45 on the stocker. Future plans also include a cast iron polini, and ninja g3 pipe. But that will be another thread.
If you know of a pipe that works well with stock, then please share it! This thread is all about providing concentrated, concise info for those who want the most out of their stock pugs. Why should the puch and tomos guys be the only well versed cats out there?
