sweet, thanks. although i did get impatient and start anyway!
70cc kit from Athena for Sachs. I am wondering about port matching this intake to the engine.(picture attached) Then engine port looks like the gasket here. and obviously the intake manifold is just rectangular. Common sense tells me i should match it to the engine size, but why wouldn't Athena have made it that way? So I was wondering if there was a reason, or if i should reshape it.An
Thanks everyone! I will be sure to bring lots of tools/ spare parts etc. but hopefully the Sachs will hold up strong!! but who knows with all the hell that bike has put me though already!
okay, well i ordered the vm100's from a shop in my town. so we'll see how they do!I am currently in michigan. and damn it is cold. so i plan on going south. I have a friend in Asheville North Carolina who i want to visit. and well that is about the only plan i have. i might continue down to florida or something. who knows. anyone south easterly, and want to offer a floor to sleep
actually it is a columbia commuter with a sachs engine, with tomos rims. I actually havent put the rims on yet, but i went to them so i could get a better gear ratio with my kitted sachs set up. I would totally like to get some gazzels, but do they even make them for 16" rims? as of right now, it seems like the michelin vm100's might be my best bet.and damn, i wish i could go on a mop
I am planning on a nice long road trip on my moped soon, and wanted to get new tires for it. it has 16" rims and i was looking at the Michelin VM100 tires going for the 2.5. but also the Pirelli ML75's look pretty sweet with the rear tire being 2.75 and the front 2.5. I think the ML75's are tubeless, but i don't know about the VM100's. I also don't know about wear
i do have the engine kitted. 15mm bing carb, biturbo, 70cc Athena kit. it is a columbia commuter with the sachs engine though, not a sachs bike. it is stock 11/42. there is no yellow chain guide. how fast does yours go with the kit?
Yeah, I know the clearance isn't much, but i am pretty sure people have done it, although it would take a little grinding:) the engine casing there is 1cm thick, so there is a little room to play with. I figured i would get it and check it out anyway. Without that, it is going to be hard to get any more speed out of my ped otherwise. Cant go any lower than like a 38 in the back, which wou
thanks guys,i have tried handybikes, they said they only have the stock 11 tooth ones.on 50cc.nl they only had sprockets listed for one sachs bike, and from their pictures, the inside pattern was not the same. maybe i'll try to e-mail them and see.Chris, thanks for trying to get back with me, I dont know why the e-mails would have bounced though. is there any chance that you will be getting
So i am looking for a 12 tooth front sprocket for my sachs. i have seen posts saying that both 12 and 13 are available. however in my searching, and calling, and e-mailing, i am still without luck. Has anyone actually found, or know where i can get one?MPW has"Minarelli front sprocket 12 teeth for V1 V1L V1HL models"which is currently out of stock, but would that fit on the sachs?I ha
I have a 80 columbia commuter with a sachs engine, which i put that kit on recently. I did not do any port matching, but i probably would have if i had known it to be recommended. i used the 15mm bing, with the performance air intake from mwh, and a biturbo which i welded onto the stock header. everything seems to work great so far, yet, i still have to get the jetting correct. so let me know
Thanks! I kinda figured, but wanted to make sure.
can anyone tell me the standard size of a Tomos chain?Thanks,Chip
does anyone know if i can take the one wire that has power for the brake lights and use that to re-wire the headlight and tail light? or would that just cause all lights to be really dim?
I have a columbia commuter moped with a sachs 47cc 505 engine. I have recently purchased it, and got it running. now it keeps fouling out plugs, and there is/ never was any power to the tail light or the headlight. however, the brake light works. and when i tested the wires coming out of the engine with a test light (5 wires) they all seemed to be connected.this did not seem to be right to me
