mopeds vary, what varies even more is the altitude and temperature at which they're ridden at. Do plug chops.If you get fed up with the bi-turbo, get a technigas next -- I've never regretted the extra money spent.
Ok -- joew was close in his estimations.I have done a quick calculation: I think that the assumptions that i've made are pretty generous. Assuming that the moped is traveling at an average speed of 50km/hr, that the dry ice is subliming at a rate of 3kg/hr (the higher this is, the more effective the system will be...but 3kg/hr is pretty fast), and that 70% of the energy required to sublime
because the intake air is moving so quickly, you will need to maximize the area that the dry ice cooled surface is exposed to the intake air(if that makes any sense). The more area is exposed, the more time the dry ice has to absorb the heat of the air. Also, insulation any 'non-intake air' facing surfaces would be critical to minimize the amount of cooling that occurs on air not desti
i've got some figure now:during storage, a 10lb chunk will last for about 15hrs. (of course, if you have storage at -109^, you can keep it as long as you want... ;) )If you're using it in an open environment, with exposure to warm air, i'd expect the amount of time it lasts to be cut in half or a quarter, if not more. I'd be suprised if a 2lb chunk lasted for more than 30-45mi
dry ice will sublime(solid --> gas) quite quickly -- depending mostly on surface area and ambient temperature At a rate of about $1-$2/lb this could get quite pricy. You'd also have to stop to refill your 'ice-box' -- and have a place to store the dry ice if you want to keep any quantity of it on hand -- it will still sublime noticeably in your freezer.Then there's the iss
the centre stand will still work with the technigas pipe.
Would putting a 19mm dellorto 16/16G carb on a airsal kit/technigas next pipe be a good idea/workable? Would the intake manifold need to be drilled out? Or would it fit as stock, just not give the full advantage.
Hello,I'm purchasing the Airsal kit and Technigas Next pipe for my '01 Targa. Would adding the Dellorto 15/15/L carb and airbox give a reasonable performane gain or be reccomended. Also, any estimation of jet sizes so i know what to order?Thanks, Reuben
I've got a 2001 Targa that i bought with a 1 piece bi-turbo already on. I'm looking to do a speed kit next, looking seriously at the Airsal 44mm kit, then buying a bigger carb and intake kit. Another alternative is going for the raptor kit with the technigas next pipe. My question is if the technigas is a substantially better pipe than the bi-tubo? Also will the 1 pice bi-tubo even w
this is something i'm looking at doing as well, if you could either post your findings here or email me, that would be great. thanks
thanks for the replies guys. What I did was take off the carb, take apart and clean it, and re-assemble it. I then went around and tightened any loose bolts. I'll recheck my connections for any leaks when i get a chance. I should also mention that the problem is worst when the engine is cold, and it seems to almost go away once it's been running for 10mins or so.thanks,R
Hi all. Last weekend I took the '01 Targa apart for some spring cleaning. I cleaned out the carb and did some general maintenance and tightening of things. Previously to this cleaning, it had been starting easily and idling sweet and low. Now it is a different story. Getting the ped started is a struggle, taking 5+ kicks and giving it gas to get it going. Once it's started the idle
thanks guys, i'll try it out
Problem on my '01 targa with airsal/16/16G carb/technigas. Since the install of the kit, i have gone up to a 60W headlight bulb which burns nicely. The problem is that there is a very quick buildup of corrosion(or oxidation perhaps?) on the contact b/w the bulb and the socket. I have sanded down the contacts 3 times in the past week, but it keeps reappearing. Is the kit still supplying mo
That's exactly what it sounds like. I received an unmarked piston with my airsal kit and made the same mistake. The hole in the piston should be facing up towards the intake.
that is something that i was conscious of during the install, but in the absence of any other ideas, i will check again.
i don't have a gasket b/w the cylinder and the head -- but i've read that you're not supposed to. Is this correct? It seems like it would not seal perfectly, causing a loss of compression... or no?
sorry, no, i'm running with two. Broke one on the install, ordered two more, and installed the smaller two of the three i had left. I'm considering a fuel petcock problem now, am going to check that out today. It seems to me that it has to be a problem before the cylinder, since i'm not seeing any unburned fuel pass through the exhaust -- is this logical thinking?
yes, i have. Took off the air filter and the gate can be seen to move all the way up.
I recently attached a 70cc airsal kit w/ technigas and 16/16G dellorto carb to my '01 targa. Upon starting it up, i've found that it will idle ok, but applying any pressure to the throttle will at first render a small RPM increase, but then have no effect. I've checked the carb twice over, and even tried it with the stock carb with no change -- ruling out a carb problem. One thin
one thought is that somehow i've changed the resistance on the headlight circuit -- does this seem like a viable possibility. How would it remain this way with a new bulb though?
Ok -- a while ago i had posted a question regarding the signals on my 01 targa: they had stopped working, started again for no apparent reason, and then quit for good. Around this same time i was having problems with the headlight -- just the low-beam actually. I took apart the headlight assembly and found that the problem was a very large amount of corrosion on the low-beam lead of the bulb/so
i know that on my targa, the lead on the back of the headlight likes to come loose from vibration. Your problem might be as simple as that...
I've got a 2001 targa, and the turn signals are flaking in and out. I've checked all the wiring that i can see three times, and all the connections seem tight. Is there anything else that could be causing them to sporadically work/not work? Has anyone else had this problem? Any thoughts appreciated.
My buddy thought it would be funny to try a catwalk on my 2001 targa, it didn't turn out to be so funny. He fell off the back and snapped both rear turn signals off at the post. I've tried epoxy, but it doesn't seem to be strong enough. If anyone has posts lying anround that they'd be willing to ship, please respond. thanks, Reuben
does anyone have a moped for sale in alberta? email me or post here if so. thanks.
or if you are willing to ship, let me know
I live in Edmonton, Alberta, and am looking for a reasonably priced moped in good running condition(a cheap "project" ped could be considered). Post here or email me if you have anything to offer. I'm willing to drive a few hours in any direction.
A mixture of two hydrocarbons is by no means the same as a pure solution of a hydrocarbon of their average weights. In addition to this, gasoline is already a complex mixture (including olefins, aromatics, napthenes, octanes, etc...) to draw on the various beneficial properties of these different hydrocarbons. Less care is generally put into the production of oils, but they are hydrocarbon mixtu
