Saturday (Sept 7) at approximately 6:30-6:50AM I was struck from behind in full daylight on a straight road. I was wearing a red jacket with reflective white stripes, a neon yellow visibility vest with reflective strips, and a glossy bright blue helmet. I was in the right lane(of two going my direction).I was traveling at WOT, between 25-30mph, the driver said he was doing 55-60mphWhen I stopped t
How far do you all normally go on a ride? 5 miles? 10? 50? And what's the farthest you've gone, be it in one "sitting" or with breaks? (Without breaking your 'Ped, or self)
The other day I rode my 1980 Starflite into town (~18 miles), made two short stops and turned homeward. I made it about halfway home (~10 miles out of town,~ 30 total miles that day) and the engine suddenly shut off. No stuttering or struggling, just gone.The engine has since not been movable, so I'm fairly certain it's seized.Does anyone have a spare, working M48 lying around? Or advice
Under absolutely no circumstances would a longer chain help in any way. As too flipping the arm, the entire problem is that the arm is pulling back where it has no business being. The frame lacks a nub to keep it from going back too far, and the chain is too large to make up for it.
Idler?I didn't have that link,but i have a hard-copy, unfortunately it says nothing about the tensioner aside from the fact that it exists. Plus mine is an '80, so it could be a tad different.
The spring is meant to push the arm backwards, thus providing tension to the chain. It's not engaged because the arm is too far back.As to shortening the chain,already tried,removing just one link-pair makes the chain short enough that it rubs against the muffler support arm,without any input from the tensioner.Don I'm happy to give you an excuse to avoid plumbing, pictures would be grea
Yesterday i was out riding, having finally fixed my tension arm for the peddle chain(or so i thought) I'd been having trouble with it going too far back and derailing the chain,but with some tweaking and truing of angles,it seemed fixed,i was able to get a good 15 miles without trouble.Cue yesterday,i ran outa gas on the road and had to get picked up. As i was pulling my ped out of the car i
....I am an idiot.you loosen those bolts from the other side....
My beautiful Batavus has a starting problem. Namely the drive belt slips.The prior owner had no clue what he was doing and put a generic V-belt on when the original presumably broke. At the time to make it fit he had to max out the tension, now, as belts are wont to do,it has stretched.Knowing nothing, I assumed it would be an easy fix. I purchased the correct belt and proceeded to put it on, only
Thanks fellas, synth and ethanol free are both readily available here. Upjetting and motorcycle speeds are both things I want to avoid for now, wanna keep the Bat stock as much as possible, plus the whole point in getting a moped was to avoid the need for insurance.
I been here 15...just didn't have a moped
@Jeff Parr@Alexandro Ramirez-NagyWhy not just a few drops of superglue?
Down in the Farms...does that count? :)
Just bought me an old starflite for putting into work. Fuel Ratio is 1:50.Any oils i should stay away from? and how rigorously should I avoid ethanol?P. S. Titling was a breeze(2 hr wait aside) pics will be posted once the sun comes out.
