Lemme get a pass on that. I know I screwed up with that thing. I’m new to this but learning fast. I need a local spot that I can go and grab parts from. Do you know any in NewJersey?
Thanks a lot. How would I know what’s the correct size jet is for it?
No, I’m hoping that’s the problem. Praying it’s not the trans
Ok so the milk jug shim fits perfect and the carb snug as can be but the bike isn’t pulling at all when I take it off the stand. It runs like a champ on the stand tho. I’m praying it’s not a trans or clutch issue. I pray that it’s that eBay carb I bought for 15$ but I’m probably not that lucky. Any thoughts?????
Your the man. Milk jug worked like charm
I’m trying the milk jug as we speak thanks. I’ll let you know how it works out
I got one off eBay that seems to be an imitation. Bad decision on my part but if I can get past this hump it seems to work fine.
Maybe 1mm. I used some electrical tape and the carb stays there but it turns by hand easily. What happening is the bike starts and runs fine but when you give throttle it’s bogging out like it’s losing pressure or maybe the carb isn’t tuned correctly. It idles perfectly tho. I’m lost. Can’t move on to making it pretty until I get it running correctly smh.
Grabbed a carb off eBay for it. Said 14mm and I’m not sure if the carb is bigger or my intake is smaller but the carb is just a tad bit big. I don’t think it’s a 12mm. Is there anything I could use to make up for the space????
That’s what I was thinking but I’m doing this project with my dad n breaks everything he touches. He broke a few of the screws on there. If I could get new points and condenser that would be great. Where can I buy them tho?????
Wow!!!!!! Thanks I’m gonna take my time and try to figure this monza out.
Nice!!!!!!! More power is always a plus. I google it lastnight to see what they were. Question; do they make top tank Derbi Mopeds???
Well not at this point. I don’t wanna be a quitter plus every issue i have been with it I’m learning so it’s kind of a win win for me. I took a look at the avanti engine, looks identical. If the new flywheel doesn’t work that’s what I’m gonna do.
Lol I don’t even know what a derbi is. Send me pic of one.I’ve been having great luck with them. In the past 2weeks I have 4/5bikes running pretty good with minimal parts. I’m gonna try to keep the streak going with this one but if not I’m definitely gonna do the engine swap. Selling it isn’t an option.
I saw that one as well. Has the mounts on top just like mine all the others don’t. But all I need are those pieces inside the flywheel and I think I’ll b good. I don’t wanna spend 500$ when I can buy I part for maybe 25/50$. Maybe you guys are rite tho I’m not sure at this point just playing the guessing game. If I could buy a new flywheel or upgraded one that fits and it gives me spark I’d be goo
How much should I look to spend on an engine?
I’m not sure but if you can find out anything let me know. The engine has good compression not sure about the trans. Doesn’t seem like it was beat up but it does seem to have been under water at some point
Flywheel, stator, coil, spark plug wire, keyed ignition etc. basically everything from the flywheel to the spark plug that causes spark
Fly wheel, stator, magneto, Spark plug wire, ignition. Basically everything that creates spark.
Would you happen to have any spare parts it?
Thanks. I ended up using mariatic acid from Home Depot. Clean the heck out of the magneto and I’m gonna let it sit overnight in the tank. And what’s flat view?
When you say mix what’s the mixture? I see some people of YouTube adding water to it. Or can I use it straight?
Where would I find one? How much would a look to spend?
I don’t know anything about except that it must have lived underwater for some time. But I’m having fun figuring things out daily plus you guys are a great help on this forum
Bought a puller from harbor freight to get it off without breaking anything. Guess I’m gonna clean the points with sand paper. How can I get some of that rust off???
Would it need to be for that specific bike are they pretty general like the carbs???
I have to say that in my opinion motorcycles are 10times more dangerous. The speeds that they go instantly can kill you on sight. Most mopeds go bicycle speeds. It would have to be freak accident or negligence of a driver which can happen walking on foot.
Thanks. I’m no quitter. I’m new but I grabbed 5 mopeds in the last 2weeks and got 3running. Waiting on a carb for the 4th and this one is giving me a run for my money but I’m up for the challenge. Do you have any knowledge on the easiest way to clean a gas tank out. Also cleaning the fly wheel or should I just change it?
