I would use caution when rigging up a system to charge lithium ion.
Although mine is a Moby I didn't like the flickering headlight at idle so I have mine setup to run the tail light running light on the coil. The brake lights, head light, and horn are run off a 18 volt Milwaukee drill battery with a dc-dc regulator on a simple switch. Works good and is super simple. Cheap if u have alot of drill batteries like I do
I order 99% of my stuff from treats. I b ordered a stock variator fro 77 a while back and when bbq I got it the clutch bell was bent. The shipped me a new one asap and said just keep the other one for parts. Pretty good service but that was like 2 years ago
My guess would be a bad vacuum leak. Do a leak down if u haven't done one already
He is saying that because it is clear you have a lot to learn, and it's fairly easy to seize a piston. Sorry if that comes off as being a dick. just stay on the safe side with the jetting and make sure to invest in a head temp gauge.
If its an o ringed head than pretty safe bet that the leak is from the gasket at the cylinder base. I have had that before. Its generally frowned upon but I use a small amount of sealant on both sides of the gasket if I have a persistant leak. I than vacuum/pressure test the motor to ensure its leak free. Good luck
There r a couple ways to figure out the tire size. If u bought the unit new than it is clearly laid out in the instructions. Once you put the info in just verify top speed against a GPS app on ur phone. As most apps will also log top speed
If u do a leak down via lung power, I was able to achieve 16 inches of vacuum. And about 1.5 psi of positive pressure which is plenty to find a leak with soap/water. If you do a search for rebel Moby and leak down you will find good info. I just took the lung powered test a little further, I have a vacuum ine attached to the intake which runs back to a tee fitting, fom there i connected a vacuum
Definately do a leak down. Super easy to do and you can make a leak down tester from material around the garage and just use lung power. That's what I did anyways. And yes rebel is always full of good advice.
I have same setup with parmakit and as soon as the motor would variate the filter would hit the frame and pop the carb off. I messed with it for some time and finally gave up. I definitely wanted to run a filter so I now have a clamp mount phbg with mixture sc screw on Cdi side. Should b no clearance issues now. As for the throttle cable I just drilled a hole in the foot board area and ran the cab
You have the variator operation backwards. More weight will cause the variator to "open" earlier.
From what I know there pretty much the same for all mopeds. You may need the extension for temp sensor. My speedo cable was really long for my 50v so I just installed it on the back tire. Easy peasy
I would think it would be pretty similar. Yeah I didn't want another cable for The choke but ifi did it again I would have bought the lever style choke. I think it would he easier to use
Sorry buddy I had no time to get in the garage. I'll snap one when I get home in about 9hrs
I have The same setup. I thought I would need a 90deg dendy as well soi bought one but it didn't work to well. So I just drilled a hole by the gas tank and ran the throttle cable through there with no bendy. This made it so the angle wasn't that bad. Works great and still looks fine. I can take a pic tomorrow if u like
Thx again rebel, I will contact 1977. And as always u have a great solution
Nope. No insurance. The variator box was inside another larger box so I really don't think it happened during shipping. To straighten it myself I was thinking I would just assemble the variator, then use feeler gauges to get The space between the pads and the housing and then lightly hammer out the bent part until the gap is The same all The way around. Any thoughts?
I always find it to he a huge pain returning things. Especially since it going from Canada back to the states. If its really hard to make it round again then ill send it back. If it just takes some time to make it round again then no big deal.
I just picked up one of the cheap side kick stand that treats sells. It works great
Hi guys, I just received my new stock variator for my 50v. I pulled it out of the box and the and the large housing is bent inwards in two spots. It's bent so far in that the piece that goes inside with all the pads won't turn by hand. I'm assuming I need to try to bend it out until it turns freely. Sorry I don't know the proper part names. The main reason I bought a new one is
One more possible issue is that when I assemble the exhaust it "cocks" the ball joint all the way down. The angle looks like it would be better but only when the motor is in the fully variated position.
Lol. I've lapped valves into cylinder heads before just never thout of it for the ball joint. Looks like I never put a crush gasket into the head. I remember thinking I must not need one because in the head there really isn't a "shoulder" for the gasket to get crushed against. At least not like the factory cylinder.
Hey rebel, I'm afraid I don't know what you mean when you say to lap it with some cloverleaf.
My g3 leaks pretty bad at the ball joint and maybe even a bit at the head as well, hopping someone might have some ideas on how to fix this. I removed the fitting from the head and then re tightened it, the springs seem to be nice and tight. I should mention this is all new stuff on a 70cc parmakit. Thx for any ideas
Yeah I buy everything from them. They have always been awesome
The cylinder was new and has never been honed since new. I definately would not sand the cylinder. I also never removed any material from the cylinder. When I raised the cylinder with a couple of base gaskets I shaved a little bit off of the head. That's why I was surprised it was chipping. I have since lightly sanded both peices on a piece of glass and opted to try with no head gasket. And t
I've had it for at least two years now. But just got around to putting it all together
I was surprised to find it chipping like that. Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction
