Making my Moby 7 faster

I've been working on my Moby 7 for a while now and the biggest upgrade I did was throwing a delorto Sha on it. The old gurtner was spitting gas and I could only get to about 23mph. The Sha brought me up to 28. Looking at the 3 different models released, it looks like I got the slowest rated to go only 20 mph. So I got my hands on a 15mm intake that I installed today hoping to see a difference from the stock 10mm. Low and behold I still top out at 28mph. What gives? I just want to hit 35mph to keep up with traffic. I guess I'm let down that this part didn't make a difference, advice?

Good searching in the wiki

Read the Wiki about porting your cylinder and opening your pipe up

Somebody recently tried to tell me about an adapter bracket for the 7, is this a real thing?

I don't see how it could be. Frame doesn't have enough clearance to be variated.

Re: Making my Moby 7 faster

that's what i thought too. i've never had one nor really considered it, just trying to piece together this incomplete patch in my knowledge

Re: Making my Moby 7 faster

I have always wanted on to mess with. I have seen pics of one with a Tomos topend but idk if it ever said how it ran.

i just picked up a moby7. the trippy thing is the motor mounts on a bracket ala pug but with two studs sticking out up top. Theres two moby rubber vibration that are perpendicular to the bike and it hangs there.

MidMoPeds Sam built a dual variated Lucky7. Fixed AV7 to hobbit wheel, it worked fine.

..or mabe it’s that 7 engine with the trippy mounts. ;)

I love that he used horse shoes to mount the rear wheel. Hahaa(edited)

Re: Making my Moby 7 faster

That's pretty rad! Sure dual variation is a way to get around the usually swing of the Moby engine. But sure doesn't looks like something that could just be slapped on.

Re: Making my Moby 7 faster

Only "plug and play" dual set up is to find a very difficult to locate driven pulley from a old PUG BBV or PUG 104V or PUG Vogue. 16mm pedal shaft on Peugeots, so aside from shimming a little it is ZIM-ZAM-ZOOM

Or an DRG Concept pulley (made of French unobtanium and unicorn horn dust)

Re: Making my Moby 7 faster

Flandria Bermuda mopeds also came with dual variated pulleys. You can also probably track down a 2 spd solo pulley too. I think I would actually prefer the latter because planetary gears are so rad.

Re: Making my Moby 7 faster

if you now have the power, then play with the gearing

Re: Making my Moby 7 faster

Mild port job, SHA15:15 and a nice circuit pipe and you could be cruising in the mid 30s if you have the right gearing.
