i'm a garelli guy and i would suggest you get the magnum. it will be a lot easier, cheaper and faster in the end. that being said, it is possible to make a garelli fast. It just takes a lot more effort.
Thats your max temp (which is hot as shit even for a garelli) but what temp is it at when cruising around? garellis can get stupid hot when blasting up a long steep hill or if you are beating the shit out of them. But they usually cruise around at 380-420 in my experience. like everyone said, look for air leaks, retard timing and maybe try to upjet a couple sizes
i tighten them in an alternating pattern untill they don't turn any more, then give 'em a little more pressure. not crazy tight but just enough. no need for a torque wrench on a moped. It's a glorified weed whacker engine, no need to overthink it
does the mlm pipe clear the pedals?
When it is 90+ degrees in the summer and below freezing in the winter like in the North East, you will want to upjet like 2 points in the winter. My shit runs hotter in the winter and needs to be upjetted to compensate for the much denser air
awesome build. So much rare Garelli goodness going on there
i always wanted a set of those wizards
Yea thats me. Hopefully Stephen can hook me up
wtb Garelli VIP or 2 speed NOI Clutch Bell. Or an Avanti 2 speed clutch bell. Let me know if you have one. Number 10 in the attached pic. Thanks
Very nice bike. It does have the aluminum cylinder. I'm not sure if it is worth any performance but its cool anyway
It will do upper 40's easy. All 2 speed noi bikes came with 10-54 gearing. Your bike may have had the motor swapped onto it or someone swapped the rear wheel.
you need a much bigger rear sprocket. The 2 speed NOI bikes came with 10-54 gearing. Mine has 11-44 gearing which I have found is a perfect ratio for my bike's power and my weight.
that is a really nice bike. 2 speed NOI's are not very common but they are around. I have 2 of those motors. The 2 speed noi's came on most models of Garellis but they were way less common than the 1 speed. The rubber clutch system in the 2 speed is pretty nice and will actually slip like you need a moped clutch to do.
I had a similar thing happen to me blasting down a hill on a stock garelli. In my case there is a rubber seal in the petcock that had swelled over the years and would only allow enough gas to flow at normal speeds but when really blasting down hill it would not be enough. I ended up soft seizing like you just did. I just got new rings and gave the cylinder a hone and was back up and running. also,
daytona bars from jc whitney:nice and comfy
Link to the craigslist ad:http://newjersey.craigslist.org/mcy/5564006119.htmlThe price is a craigslist price. I'd do better for moped people
ha. I'm from Caldwell.you could just ride down bloomfield ave. to belleville/newark and get across the passaic river to kearney on one of the regular road bridges but i don't know how you could get to weehawken or jersey city without taking a highway bridge. You need to find a way across the hackensack river that is not a major highway bridge. once you are in jersey city/hoboken/weehawke
Lots of name dropping in this:http://www.wsj.com/articles/the-vintage-moped-resurgence-1457026107
I'm gonna try to make it to this
I saw something on 1977's instagram where they were prototyping a garelli "super-clutch"
