Looking for a running single speed e50 maxi in the Seattle area.. bonus points for a clean tank..
Polini kits, if your adventurous =)
i prefer depleted uranium plugs. only available where the US military has been..
the only way i know of to get better gas milage is to feed it less gas, meaning, smaller jet, meaning you'll have to restrict the amount of air to get good air/fuel ratio.also get less power..
trade it in for a peugeot..
yikes, 1157 is 50 bucks on ledtronics.. pricey..
do a search, theres a very recent thread on this.
ah! i assumed wrong, how do the italian variators mount?
i recommend the doppler. dont know if its for bravo, but works great on my TSM.. they're pretty universal i believe, just bolts on to the starter clutch
NP, big carbs are good as long as you have the flowthrough to really compensate and take advantage of it, meaning opening up your intake, your exhaust port, perhaps removing some of the baffeling from your exhaust or buying a peroformance pipe.make sure you read up well on porting before you even touch a dremel
thats not too big. with the proper intake it'll really boost the performance of the bike. R in our branch is running a 19mm bing with a 19mm intake on a stock puch and its fast as hell. i ran a 15mm bing on a 1.5 horse puch and it ran great.
thats the setup im running right now. a peugeot TSM, 70cc malossi kit, doppler performance variator & 16mm carb. im still breaking the kit in, but the variated transmission is so simple theres really nothing to burn out, except maybe your starter clutch if its engaging all the time cause you put it together not quite right like i did.plus youve got the reedvalved intake. peugeots are just all
are you talking about 70cc or 50cc? there were different cylinders heads and pistons made for different speed maxis. i dont know enough about them to tell you whats good, but certain ones are higher compression and the like.2 speeds are considerably faster but much more prone to failure.theres some software out there for obtaining optimum numbers for port sizes and the like, search the forums, the
be sure you know the bottlenecks of your engine. i opened the exhaust port of a 78 motobecane 7 to about 60% of the width of the cylinder (from about 40) and noticed only slight gains in acceleration and top speed. i know it should have done more than that so im looking in other areas (intake port and transfer sizes) just a hint.-c
i'd suggest a 19mm dellorto with a 19mm reed valve kit. if not, yes you will have to upjet your carb and do a bunch of plug chops. dont mess with your exhaust either, they're designed with a specific shape to direct sonic shockwaves back through the exhaust port to keep fresh gas in the cylinder. you might run faster without the pipe, but thats just because theres more flowthrough and yo
anyone have experience with these? im ordering a doppler perf variator for my peugeot from 50cc.nlhttp://www.50cc.nl/plaatjes-onderd/18523.jpghow hard are these to install? what kind of performance increases can i expect? my stock var is all froze up, so either way im sure it'll be better than that.-chris
yes, double the amount of oil per gallon. its just to help the engine wear in and prevent any serious damage as the piston and cylinder get used to each other.. you might foul out plugs faster, but its a small price to pay to properly wear in an engine.
heres what im looking at getting for a 1980 peugeot TSM, mostly from 50cc.nl19mm reed valve19mm dellorto phvb70cc steel malossi cylinder kitNOS exhaustNOS variator56 tooth rear sprocket.would this setup run well? im slightly concerned about burning out the crankshaft or bearings or whatnot. theres also an aluminum polini kit for about the same price. while aluminum dissipates heat faster, im conce
try taking the peanut off, hehehe. sound like a machine gun, but it'll go pretty quick =-Dseriously tho, i dont know about aftermarket exhausts, but there is that 70cc kit and i had a lot of luck with the dellorto 15/15 carb on my '78 50v. i did need to JB weld the plastic sleeve onto the engine intake because the carb was too big for the intake, but it wasnt too hard.make sure you set t
oo0. my bad. usually im good about that kind of thing -0well, is the newport the same as the magnum/cobras? from the pics, it almost looks like the exhaust is coming out at an angle. is that the E50 engine? even so, i think theres more differences between the bikes. plus there really wasnt much about mounting of certain pipes to certain bikes.well, i'll see justin tonight anyway, i'll as
ive had very bad experiences accidentally overtightening my chain by even a small amount. broke my master link and got laughed at by police. not a fun day. =-(
talking to justin from the lef's, he was saying that they dont. just wondering if anyone has had any experience with the puch magnum/cobras and either of these two pipes and what you had to do to get them on. i really dont want to to get a proma country or biturbo, i'd like something with an expansion chamber.
great post kenneth. i was looking at that kit, but i dont have access to any sort of machining tools and wouldnt really know what to do exactly anyway. what do you mean by "machining to the casehalves to get the sleeve of the cylinder to fit"?kinda hard to understand it without being there to see it..sounds like your quite happy with it tho.. what exhaust are you running and how did the
eko, have you got the site up yet?
i was going to say the same. my stock cobra 1 speed tops out ~32-3 mphsomethings wrong with his...
if your in a city, 6 houses isnt very long.. i know my puch 1 speed wouldnt top out in 6 houses.. i'd get up to about 24-25, but it tops out around 33-35
with the cracked intake letting air in, your running way too lean.. too much air and not enough gas. very bad for the engine, can cause it to overheat sieze. something i wouldnt recommend doing. if your determined to do something like that, make sure to get a larger jet for your carb to allow more gas to get into the mix, you still might run hot, but it may not be quite as bad, im not sure.i took
how freaking cool is that.. great find
