thanks - that totally worked. i won't know the new top speed until someone paces me, or i get a new speedometer, but it's more than 30. i can run the hills so much better now. this thing is loud - sounds like a dirtbike.
so i got my proma country, but it doesn't bolt to the frame perfectly. anyone have any experience w/ this set-up or any suggestions? any ideas much appreciated.-ned
so i bolted on the polini kit and when i kicked it over the engine started racing really bad. i sprayed carb cleaner around and found an air leak around the intake. i used some of that liquid gasket crap around where it meets the carb and that helped a little, but it was still pretty bad. i also adjusted the throttle. then i crammed a bunch of gause in the airbox to restrict the flow. that made it
also, the headlight is not going on. don't know if it's necessary to start this one or not. i cheked the bulb though, and it works fine...
hey all. i just got my first moped - 78 sears free spirit yesterday. ran great all day. today, i went to fire it up, but alas - no go. i replaced the spark plug, which was totally wet with gas and oil when i pulled it out, and sprayed the carb down with cleaner. it sounds like it wants to start as long as i peddle, but when i stop, it just dies. any ideas? i don't know where to start. thanks,
you are supposed to have a plate and an identification card:"http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/vctop/d03/vc5035.htm":urland an m2 license:"http://www.dmv.ca.gov/dl/dl_info.htm#2505":urlcalifornia moped info:"http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/vctop/d01/vc406.htm":urlalso..motor incapable of propelling the device at a speed of more than 20 miles per hour on ground level. HAR!
much thanks to fred for his awsome guide to fixing my moped and pyroil, makers of fine carb and choke cleaner.
