The threads on the nut get completely ground out. I have ordered replacement nuts from moped junkyard. after a day of riding they are stripped out again
This keeps on happening. after riding my lovely moped for a day the nut that holds the clutch good and tightly compressed completely strips out. i mean I can just pull the thing off. Does anyone know what larger issue could be causing this.
The nut that holds my clutch together and tight keeps on stripping. This is a very odd size nut and has to be ordered from a junk yard. It has now happened twice since I got my moped 2 weeks ago. I have to image that i have a bigger problem on my hands.The nut stripped a few days after I bought the bike. I got a new nut, put it on andI rode the ped like a charm for a whole day. The next day t
Thank you, I will try that.-Pete
I have a stripped nut on the clutch of my 1978 Motobecane 7. It is the nut that is on the outside of the clutch and holds everything together. The nut is not a standard size and I am having a heck of time finding one. A little teenie tiny nut is keeping my moped in moth balls. Help. Does anyone know where I can find this odd size, I guess it is 11mm, as 12 is too big and 10 too small.
Thanks for the tips.-Pete

Thanks, I will give the screw half a turn and see if it sounds and runs a bit easier.-Pete
I am a moped rookie. I just got a 1978 motobecane 7 and it seems to be riding high. I image there is a screw somewhere to adjust on the engine to lower the idle. Could anyone instruct me on what to do. I do not want to mess this beauty up. but also do not want to burn out my engine.Thanks.
I did. They told me my year make and model is classified both B and C. My Moped barely pushes 20mph and when I told him this he said, "How did you arrive at that?". Which I responded, "I looked at the speedometer." He wasn't Pleased. Then he told me without a title or previous registration history I could not prove ownership. They gentleman that I bought My moped from
Thanks. I went in and did not get the helpful clerk. He told me they could not find my VIN number anywhere in NY State, and that my affidavit of ownership was not good enough. He told me I have to set an appointment with the salvage department and they can assess wether my moped can be waved through the Proof of Ownership and onto Plates. Can you believe that! The form I gave him directly sai
I just bought a 1978 Motobecane 7, and am loving it. I keep on getting told I have to register it in New York City. I looked into it's classification and called the DMV. They said it could be a class B or C and That I must provide proof of this. Also i need proof of ownership. I bought it from a guy in Long Island that refurbished it from parts he bought from themopedjunkyard.com. Does
