Hey all, I picked up a Gadabout (Minarelli V1) moped for $250 a couple months back. It has the following: 80cc Polini Kit + a Brand new 80cc Kit, Polini Custom Head, MLM Intake, Dellorto PHBG Carb, MLM Peoples Pipe, 2 brand new tires. Also all the stock stuff and a spare engine. Plus a title!
He broke a ring and it looks like he never chamfered the ports and it got snagged. The inside of the cylinder has a slight scuff where you can see it snagged it. So I'm just going to move forward with the brand new 80cc kit.
The plus for me (I've only had stock bikes) is he already has the carb and timing set up for the new kit because he rode this for a year with this setup. I think it would just be smart to overlook what he did just to know exact things like jet size & if he timed it correctly for the new kit.
Does anyone have any tips for me installing this kit? It seems pretty self-explanatory but I don't want to screw anything up. The trickiest part seems like getting the rings on the piston & chamfering the ports. Any tips or tricks would help significantly. I have looked at some of the wiki articles on installing a kit. But this will be my first time. Thank you!
