no they're definitely the faster more powerful ones. i'm not sure why; i guess i always figured it was in the porting. the m56 in my regency did 35 stock before that bike got stolen, raped, and left for dead
you're correct that it tops out at relatively low rpm because of the length of the header, but that's the point of the pipe - it's designed as a low end pipe. the estoril motor gp race course had vicious turns and grades . . . the estoril pipe is called that because it boosts the rpm range you'd be in a lot on the estoril race course. so you could hack that pipe up to be a to
. . . oh yeah, + $75 for the bullet pipe, so $550

yeah i remember the first time i met you some guy was talking about some part he needed, and you just dove into this massive messenger bag you had which was full of every kind of part, just sort of haphazardly hanging out in there . . . hah.
where was this moved to? don't see it in repair, and i want to know the answer.
i've never worked with that one, but does it come with the 70cc hi comp head? in the picture in the wiki it does . . . if so, awesome!i have a 19mm dellorto PHBG on a 65cc metrakit with a hi comp head and it has a 103 main jet and a 52 pilot jet for break-in. i can't tell if the needle's a 6 or a 9 (dellorto logo's smudged so i can't tell which way is up) but 6 is too th
i'm pretty sure #2 is for adjusting the throttle cable tension. you slip the the throttle cable through it (it's hollow in the middle, right?) and the threaded tip fits into #4. the twisty part slips over the cable housing tip, and then by screwing it in or out you adjust the tension. i say "pretty sure" because there's a part just like that on my throttle cable that wo
go really really slow. you can always take away more metal, it's much harder to add it. also, it's really easy and fun!
white plugs + really high jets - low end power = air leak, for sure. did you use a gasket when you installed that intake manifold? did you clamp the carb on real tight?
i used a tungsten bit like steve, and also the sandpaper. the sandpaper's very important, don't skip it

found more info. they're single speed an air-cooled. basically, they're exactly like puch e50 engines . . . except that the crank comes with roller bearings, the cylinder has 6 ports and huge transfers, the ignition is microprocessor controlled and automatically advances as rpm increase, the intake is a 19mm four-flap reed valve designed for the 19mm phbg pull choke dellorto, there
looks like an exhaust-side soft-seize. clean it up with a little very fine sandpaper, you should be fine.
congratulations, john! you worked on that for awhile
i meant this one, actually (the s6)<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/26512291@N03/2497030573/" title="morini franco motori s6 by ronnyjamesdio, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3246/2497030573_41d1cd080d.jpg" width="500" height="376" alt="morini franco motori s6" /></a>which you can get a couple of
see i don't know. it doesn't say on the two or three websites i've found that sell them. if the s6 can be variated though . . . jesus . . . right?
i remember someone posting rather bitchily a few months ago, in the general forum, about these morini franco motori engines (i have the s6 particularly in mind) that can be had for around $600, dellorto included, and which apparently put out 8 or 9 horsepower out of the box. supposedly the bolt patterns are close to those on motobecane frames. has anyone done that/do you have pics? i'm thi
it's really easy to strip those head bolts btw, even without a torque wrench. i did and now i'm sad - :-(
is this the red sha filter you guys mean by the way?http://www.1977mopeds.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=22_110&products_id=194'cause shoot, i was excited about mine . . .
wait, it's far as hell from the brown line! how the hell do you even get to that place?
haha, that's true, and i might even get some reading done, wouldn't that be a trip . . . ok i'm going this afternoon!
well, 55 bus to red line to brown line actually . . . i mean it's like an hour and a half each way. but you're right, i should just do it.
i'm worried about that . . . i ordered the three kinds they had, i'm hoping one fits/can be ground. i would go up to scooterworks and just get the right kind first, but i killed my car last week and it's 120 blocks north of me
see ok that's what i thought . . . so it's just that the regular double ended puch throttle cable is the wrong length for my phbg! i ordered a cable pinch bolt, i'm going to use that . . . soldering sounds a little too ghetto
i still think it's an air leak, if you haven't checked for that.
sounds to me like you have an air leak involving your intake manifold, but not a very big one. when the engine is cold, the mixture's ok, but when it gets hot, the overall condition is too lean, which can cause racing/poor idle. you're partly compensating with the fairly rich main jet (though that's not crazy-rich, incidentally, depending on where you are). you should idle the en
i've heard people express a strong preference for the malossi 90 degree filter over the foam filter
