Just saying but, doing 50 on a 212cc engine is nothing impressive. Dudes with 4 stroke dirtbikes do that all the time. I have a 70s honda cb200 that will do 50 no problem. What everyone is saying is that throwing a lawnmower motor on your dumpy bike and going slightly below an average speed for that engine is not cool in the moped comunity. Besides it's not a moped, it's not even pedal s
I've had one of these things and here was my experience. Out of the box everything is quite chintzy and badly designed. After assembling it went about 25 mph in a moped like fashion it was light, legal, cheap, and fun. Compared to a moped however there was a huge gap. The moped was way more comfortable and everything about the moped was better. Better brakes better tires better suspension and
Yeah that's the plan! Next time I see him I'm gonna see if I can catch him on my Peugeot.
Hey moped army! Story time!I was working in my yard the other day when I heard the unmistakable sound of a two stroke motor. I jumped up from what I was doing and looked toward the road hoping to see a moped or at least a scooter or maybe an old shifty. Before long I saw a top tank moped go by. well over the last couple days, I have seen this same pedder go by riding several different bikes. some
Yeah man! Another Moto guzzi owner! So these bikes if I remember correctly, use the same clutch as puch. So whatever folks use in their puchs you will probably be good to use in this. I know that's general but its useful knowledge.
As far as jetting, I would probably try something in the eighties, maybe low nineties even... I think I had a mid to high seventy in a stock bike with a little port work exhaust and 15 sha. Jetting is bassically trial and error in a somewhat ordered fashion (to prevent seizing your engine). Start with something in the high eighties and low nineties and work your way down.
Hey there guys! Just bought a kawasaki kx80 parts bike off facebook marketplace and was wondering if anybody has experience with converting pit bike/motorcycle forks to mopeds? I kinda was thinking I will keep the 17 inch front wheel setup as well as the disc brakes. I believe I can get a street tire that will fit. I was thinking I could probably lathe a bearing race that would fit the kx triple t
Yeah make sure you get that carb tuned in. SHA's are usually pretty easy since they have only one jet that you have to worry about. Start by reading about the process in the wiki:https://www.mopedarmy.com/wiki/Dellorto_SHAand on other threads or whatever. Basically you will need to remove the main jet and insert a larger one. also, it wouldn't hurt to make sure you don't have any a

Oh yeah! Share progress and pics once you get it! looking forward to see how it goes for you! that setup gonna rip!!!
I wouldn't be surprised if you are getting week spark every time your bike warms up due to the old internal Peugeot ignition coil. wouldn't be a bad idea to do the external HT coil conversion. That said, the Le Partie CDI sure is nice... ;) It will treat you well if you go that route.
Hey cheetah! Your bike looks sweet! would love to see a pic of the entire thing. how is the rear fender mounted, or is it not mounted? and is that the metrakit you were running? how do you like it?
I have a Moto Guzzi Robin I would sell. more in the $450 or $500 dollar range.- dellorto sha 15.15 carb- rebuilt engine with new bearings, seals, and gaskets.- runs reliablyjust needs little stuff like headlight, pedals, etc.
Do you want to sell it? I'd be interested...
Ok so the "the best exhaust in treatland for max performance" is a really hard description to fill. really, you will see power gains with most Peugeot expansion chamber exhausts. that said, cost, ease of installation, and your goals become determining factors.Right now I'm running the simonini circuit pipe on my pug setup and I love it. this one has a pretty wide hard hitting powerb
Yeah man! that pipe is super restrictive from what I've heard. either find restrictions and cut em out or you could even put something like the derestricted stock sausage muffler on. once ya do that make sure its timed and jetted properly and you should be rippin pretty hard for the setup you got.I was rippin 38 - 40 on my stock cylinder, derestriced stock exhaust, a 15.15 sha, and good reeds
pic with the current progress....
Yeah Graham! I'm sure that's right! I found two O-rings that fit on both sides of the shim one against the intake and one on the carb body. the more I think about it the more I become sure its the carb. so I think I mentioned earlier that the atomizer that came with it was the four stroke version so I went ahead and ordered the two stroke bushing and atomizer. when I went to take the old
My pipe finally came yesterday. I went ahead and mounted it and have been messing with the jetting and needle settings. I went ahead and dropped the main jet down to a 90 and it was way under powered and boggy and just ran hot and lean. so I worked my way up every larger jet and every richer needle setting it ran better and better. its got like an 118 main jet and the third from top needle setting
I kinda want that. where are you located for pickup?
CHILL out guys!!! Its not that big a deal.But no, not really interested in a motor swap. I am pretty sure Its got either an sha 15.15 or 14.12 i forget now. it came with a 14.9 which was crazy restrictive and SLOW.Now as far as kit goes, ben was right on. they actually still sell this kit but it comes modified to fit garrelli.https://www.treatland.tv/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=garelli%2Dmaloss
Hey There! Wondered if anybody knows anything about kitting a Moto Guzzi moped. I have got one that I bought for $50 a long time ago. I have rebuilt the engine with new seals, bearings, and gaskets and have fixed stuff like breaks and lights. It runs great now and has for a good while.I have been batting around the idea of kitting it though. It pulls pretty hard and reliable for stock right now, p
Whats the best belt for my bike? I've heard allot about the AX something belt...
So the pipe gets here tomorrow if the tracking is correct. super excited to put it on and rip. I also will be installing a bunch of other goodies like new clutch pads, brake cables, front brake pads and spark boot.Oh Yeah! also ready to do whatever weldin and reinforcin and bracin that I have to to keep this thang on.So I kinda been thinking about it and realized that since the performance moped p
Hey there guys! so quick update... I already went ahead and ordered the Simonini circuit pipe today from treats. also got some cables plug boot brakes etc. I'm also waiting on a clutch pad and more jets that I ordered from dos that should be here Monday. I prolly wont be doing anything interesting with the bike till I get all the parts. I know the Simo isnt a super cool pipe and doesnt have t
Ok cool! that's a great point!
Maybe an Easter or spring discount coming soon then? I bought stuff from them a little while ago and they shipped but things have changed allot over the last week so I dont know... dos cycles is still shipping...
Anybody know of a treats discount code that is running right now? Or when they will likely run their next one?
hmmm... ok I am gonna do more research before I make a decision but i think I'll look around for a used pipe and a treatland discount code and if I don't decide to go with something better and more rippy and cant find a used g3 or something else cool for sale i'll just get the simo and play with that a little. I can always get something else if its boring... seems like allot of the
