Re: FS1E build

well it’s a runner started second kick .. needs a little bigger pilot jet as it ticks over better with 1/4 choke on .. its 65cc now not 49cc so needs more fuel .. last time i had to run 165 main up from 150 main stock .

Just little crap to do now :)

Re: FS1E build


well i set the air screw at 3/4 and don’t need a bigger pilot jet .. all good .. got the turn signals and brake light and tail light all working good just need new head light bulb ..

to day run she hit 50 mph easy ..45 in 3rd and pick right up to 50mph and i throttled off it’s new bore .

let it fall back to 40 mph in 4th and just rolled it on and back to 50mph quick.

so it’s got low end power to pull back from 40 to 50 with out trashing it

if i hold it out in 4th should hit 60mph with the 14/37 gearing . If i put the 15 front sprocket on it seems to have the power to pull that . 70mph will be on the cards

42 mm stroke and 44 mm bore is way better than the stock 39.5x40 .. plus’s mild porting and long rotory in take timing


Re: FS1E build

goodies goodies.. ready to go thrash the ped

wtf cock mask


Re: FS1E build

Air/mix screw should only help with mid range.

The idle screw should adjust 0-1/8 throttle along with the pilot jet.

Re: FS1E build

well ,,, need a stock throttle grip and other rubber bits .

but it’s running good ..

Took the dam tick over screw stop out and will adjust the tick over with the cable adjuster.

it’s 3 mm wide 12 mm long and 5 mm on the end in the dam air flow ??

Must be 10% or more of the flow blocked.


Re: FS1E build

well it’s running good .. still braking in the motor .. bore is tight .. hit 60mph and shut it off back to 45 to 50 mph seems very smooth


Re: FS1E build

you guys don’t seem to know a good moped when you see one ..

like no comments ..

The FS1E is a mans ped .. not some poofdas bike seen in LA or San francisco .



Re: FS1E build

Dirty30 Dillon /

I'm so glad your small motorcycle can do 60mph.

Re: FS1E build

Emil Kniemel /

Its a nice bike for sure but wasnt really available in the US. Also no pedals.

Re: FS1E build

It's a great looking moped and i've been following since the beginning but i just don't have much to add.

Re: FS1E build


Just enjoying the fine work. Didn’t see a need to butt in with any comments. I can see why that might come across as being ignored.

Nothing but love.

Re: FS1E build

well thanks Guys .. feel like i’m talking to my small motorcycle all on my own some times ..

😎..and as for 60mph well to day we smashed 68mph ...with out nipping the pistons rings to the cylinder wall ..

Re: FS1E build

What the hell is going on in this thread?

Re: FS1E build


Well having fun with like no in put from other ped Guys ... we don’t seem to have many folk that like Peds with gears ..

So doing my own thing drinking beer working on Peds and harleys .. in Florida.


Reed this book it’s great


Re: FS1E build

Haha you are a hoot. I have a yamaha yg1 and I love the fizzy.

Re: FS1E build

The thing with fizzys is all the EU gang want speed but maintain the stock look .. so the big problem is the 16mm carb it’s behind the cover out of sight.. and it’s long top to bottom ..odd carb no other bigger ones fit ?? so you can port the crap out of them use a long 42mm stoke a 44 mm bore .. as I’m doing again but even with the longest rotory valve opening you can only get so much fuel in .. 16mm hole is the slow down point .. now if you look at the bronze fizzy I did witch just sold back from the NY city area to Florida I stuck a 22mm on and 22 mm intake tube but had the dam thing hanging out the side ...

A very America twist on the taboo of the EU fizzy colt :)

A stock fizzy of the show room floor was a 48mph flat out bike with a kid of 16 on there 130 pounds wet .. so after a little braking in some did 55mph down hill ..

So with the 42mm long stroke and 42mm bore and 22mm carb and spanny and mild porting I have video of a good 66mph ..

The new blue one is 42mm x44mm with stock pipe and mild porting and long rotory intake .. it’s getting over 60mph with a 16mm carb .. about 63mph on the tank ..

So I want a 20mm but in the UK and EU fashion out of sight ..

WELL it’s been done by some really bored Swedish... well I think Swedish ..

Shiwn and Stefan and Hans .. or some guys ... found it on the net .. any way they think they have gold carbs at like 295 euros plus’s it’s will get here December 25 .. they use Santa ... to save on shipping as his going this way that week .. well fuck them ..

So I been stalking the carb they use and have found a carb in the commi China country side .. smothered in C19 ? But $40 and free shipping 4 weeks in customs 2 days on the door step after spraying it down with oven cleaner ,,, out of Lysol ..

its here :) and I’m in the slow sweating dripping wet heat plotting grinding and modernize modifying and all of that other TEC stuff a spare outer case and extra rotory plate thing :)

Yer been off the air 5 weeks but ... been doing just a few odd things ..

So I will snap some pics ... and post in a few ..


Re: FS1E build

That’s the 22 mm hanging out side ... taboo in the EU but 66mph

Up next the 20mm that’s going in the case

Re: FS1E build

Cool, cool man. I drove my yg1 a little and it goes pretty good. Been sitting in my shed for 7 or so years but just picked up a race bottom end for it with cut rotory valve and some other goodies. May get to it in my lifetime with all my other projects

Re: FS1E build


I MUST SAY THANKS STAN .... I have some one reading my posts 😊thank you ...

I’m really talking to my self but on a eye phone ..

that was a pic from last week end .. my 60th .. me and the wife hit the beach and had a blast ... she took the pic .. it’s a good one for sure .. lets hope our plan to do the same pic on my 85 th in 25 years goes to plan ::)

Up next the 20mm China animal / bing .. German copy carb pic..

Lots of grinding to fit .. but in a few weeks I will get it and 70mph even if I’m on the tank feet on the back turn signals.. I’m down from 200 pounds to 174 .. may have to stop the beer and brake the 169 to hit 70mph :)


Re: FS1E build

Keep us posted. One of the best mopeds ever built.

Re: FS1E build

So you can see Stan and other guys in the wings .. the carb will fit .. but it hours away ..

The action shot of the condom on the head is from bike week 10 years ago Carl mill ward .. puts them on his head and blows them up with his nose 👃.. it’s a party trick he found in a bar in San Francisco in 1978 ..

when he was in the British navy????

Odd yes ... his wife deb thinks it’s a stupid thing to do with a condom .. but after hanging around her ... I get it

Re: FS1E build

Well Stan post some pics of the YL1 on here it’s fizzy related ..I have info on tuning them some where ... as I said had one ... there’s some cool stuff on them from the 60s if you troll long on the net ..

YL1 racing in japan ... maybe pull up odd stuff


Re: FS1E build

Yg1. 80cc rotary valve 4 speed

Re: FS1E build

I was a loco driver at Stratford deport ... it’s long gone but was there from like 1840 till 2000 I think .

They built the Olympic stadium on the dam site ?


Re: FS1E build

Well yg1 same as the G7s really .. go on you tube look up (80mph fizzy the banned ones)

That’s me and stow thrashing the hills of lake county FL 10 or so years ago

See here a G7s motor or a yg1 same thing .. we put 20mm tubes in and 20mm carbs .. they almost fit under the cover but not all the way .. note the hole :) so later we put 1979 YZ 80 cylinders and heads on and blacked off the rotory and had 30mm carbs pic to follow

Over 85mph at that point ..

Off to bed lads it’s almost 9 and I’m off on the road 4.45am

I have a handful of geared mopeds, that actually have pedals as well, but you're really just posting a long string of consciousness with photos of you at the bar during a global pandemic.

So yeah, that's my main takeaway.
