Well i put the 70cc kit on and a 22 ‘mm carb.. the stock 16mm carb just will not do it .
Get a mic copy they are $40 and work 22mm
My RD is a screamer .. can’t wait to put the 15 tooth sprocket on it’s going to hit 70mph no problem.. i’m sealing the Tank it’s got pin hole leaks ..right now .:(
.. The RD 50 never came out in the EU till 1977 the year the government clamped down on sport mopeds that where doing 60 /70mph they resticked them all to 30mph that’s when the RD 50 came out with a nice tail like RD 250/400 and mags and disc brakes .. sales fell off 80%on mopeds so they really tried to make cool looking bikes The RD 50 was one ,, but it failed .. the moped good times where done .
I know cos i was 17 and there
Me and these guys 1976/79 moulsham motorcycle club ..
we where on the way to brans hatch to see kenny roberts and barry sheen ..
First hand knowledge of the biggest time of moped sales in EU :) punk rock . and lots of beer
Oh my 76 yamaha FS1E flat out new 50mph but after a spanny and rotory work big jets and sprocket change it did 70mph down big hills :)
