Thanks for the replyWhat do you mean by regearing the sprockets? I am pretty new to moped tuning. I also don't know how to find out what size I am currently using.
Thanks for the replies, I will have to try to find that scooter shop here.I guess as a follow-up, what amount of power do I need to get up reasonably steep hills? Do I need to upgrade to a 100cc engine? Is it even possible to install one on a Sebring?-Willie
I moved this year to the hilly city of Ithaca but my old Sebring cannot get up steep hills, so I unfortunately had to leave it back home in Mass. I am pretty fond of the bike, so I am considering trying to get a more powerful engine for it. How feasible is the endeavor? Difficult to find parts? Very pricey? Difficult installation?
Thanks to whomever suggested the air filter out of a sponge. It works perfectly and the moped is running great. I still am going to clean the carb, but i have very limited time now - I did get the cleaner though, and will wear eye protection as has been suggested. Thank you all for your expertise.-Willie
Yes, the carb looks the same as in the picture. Which type of air filter does this carb use?
So I plan on cleaning the carb as soon as I get a free time slot to do it in; but where would I find the foan disc and metal disc you spoke of - those are seemingly missing from my machine, likely accounting for the extra air. Are the parts easy to find, or could I even get a makeshift filter from a auto parts store? Thanks.-Willie
Is a special air filter beyond the small metal attachment that is on the carb? I don't know if mopeds were supposed to have air filters that are changed like in cars or a permanent structure that is cleaned out. Mine seems to just have the metal filter looking device right over the choke.-Willie
How do you find out if the main circuit or jet is blocked, and if it is, whats the procedure to clean it out? Thanks for the advice, Anthony.
My motomarina sebring will not run when the choke is open. It just sputters out. I have to run it fully choked, or at half choke, both with considerably less power than I'd guess it would produce if fully open. I'd like to be able to open it up, because the choke lever slides and stays open when running, and continues to cause the bike to sputter out. Any ideas?
I recently purchased a 1987 motomarina sebring, but am having some trouble with the choke. It seems to run fine in full choke mode, better in half choke, not at all with no choke. Its as if it gets too much air if the choke lever is fully open. I have checked the engine for air leaks (though not thoroughly) I simply held a finger over the air intake to see if it would sputter out quickly, and it d
