What is a good tension to use
I am having a difficult time with the smaller bike chain tensioner on a Puch Newport. Is that needed? What would be the problem with just shortening the chain and removing the tensioner completely.
I don't think you can beat this place for retirement. Plenty of coastline, lots of jungle, nice mountains, good food and people. They are cutting down on family's on motorcycles now. 42% of all traffic deaths are motor bikers. As for the meds, I don't think they used monkey bones, the iguana bones seem to be more popular when mixed with cocaine and banana skins.
Yep, but CR drivers and roads are something all together different.
I have been living out of the country for a few years now and have needed nothing for the ped, however that all changed recently and even after all this time Benji remembered me and my TriRad. Benji helped me get the right stuff and saved me on postage. Nice to see some things don't change, still the best customer service in the business.
Does anyone know the manufacturer of the differential used in the Puch TriRad from model year 1977?
With help from MA and the tutorials on the wiki page those motors are very easy to rebuild yourself. Some nice metric tools and maybe 2 nights of actual work and your'er done. You will need to allow time to get the crank turned and have bearings pressed in. I rebuilt mine and had never worked on a motor like that before. If you only need to fix a seized piston that is much easier to do. Go fo
That is a nice bike, and very limited edition, one of the Army members wanted more than $3000. for her's. Mine is now out of the country but I would not sell it for less than $3000. these are both totally rebuilt Tri-Rads. BUT is is worth what ever the traffic will bear, so if all you can find is someone that will pay you $600. then guess what...that's it's worth.
thanks, Ken, the carb is on my TriRad and not at all for raceing. I am just trying to get it running right down here in the tropics.
I hope you get it worked out as I am having similar problems with mine. On the jack stands it runs fine, put it on the ground and it quits. I am running baseicly the same set up 19mm Dellorto, 65cc kit etc. I will follow your posts. Good luck.
Is there anyway to tell which jets are stock in a Dellorto 19mm carb?
Ken, I respect your knowledge on the mopeds, as your advice has helped several times in the past, but I am not sure I understand this time. The pipe on the bike is a 28mm angle head pipe, up from the 22mm stock setup. Are you saying that I should drill a hole somewhere in the pipe? or replace the pipe again with one that has an expansion chamber?
I had a similar problem, turned out that the freewheel on the peddle side of the rear wheel had stripped the threads on the axle and was just spinning when I tried to peddle.I wielded to the axle and all is well now.Best of luck.
My bad... the exhaust is actually a 28 mm pipe for a Korado which is what the kit is from, not the stock 22mm.
Best idea is to check out "Treats" for what they offer. They have a good selection and Benji knows his stuff if you have a question.
I have a Puch 65cc motor with stock exhaust and a Dellorto 19mm carb with stock jets. The motor now bog at anything but idle. What jets size might I try running for this altitude?
After moving to Costa Rica I seem to have lost the wiring diagram that shows which wires I need to connect, and which is the ground, so I can get the bike to start. It's been sitting for 8 months while I fought to get it legal in the country. I think it is the only one down here so they didn't know how to classify it. Turns out it is just like in the USA, nothing special. Now I can start
I understand there is a difficultly in getting a title but sometimes a bike is totaled or stolen or traded and the title is not given. I need a title for registration outside the US so any state title would work down here.
The State doesn't really matter. I am out of the country and need a title to register it here. So I can accept any State.
I need a title for a 1977 Puch,
I think the product is called heli-coil, but I am sure another member might have a better name for them, they go into the head and voila new threads. I have run them in hi-po V8 race motors and they work swell.
I found that my freewheel problem is that the aluminum housing on the tri-rad's differential that the freewheel threads onto has been stripped. It is a very fine french thread and I have no way of retreading it. What are your thoughts of trying to use JB weld to hold the freewheel in place on the differential? Will it hold up to the torque when I pedal start the ped?
Hay Mars...Eat shit and die!!
Every nut & bolt, piece & part was taken off cleaned powder coated and replaced the bike now resides in Costa Rica with me.
Merry Christmas to all Army members and their families, along with a Happy New Year. Ride safely into 2013 and don't take any wooden nickels.
I would like to know how many Tri-rads are left in the world? I was told they are very limited any more so lets see. If you have one lets see it.
I moved here for my retirement, life is slower and more laid back. Pura Vida.I now live in San Francisco de San Isidro de Grecia de Alajuela, Costa Rica. I have been told that I may have trouble making the moped legal to ride because they don't really know how to classify it and because I took the motor off to get it past customs as a 3 wheel bicycle.
I did take my Tri-Rad now I need to make iy legal here.
