Happy Holidays Gentlemen I apologize for the long hiatus was dealing with work sending me down to the border for a few weeks, in my attempts on checking ring gap I happen to snap the top piston ring on my Dr Kit when I was reassembling the piston, so A new piston ring is ordered and for the hell of it ima replace the crank seals as well, I will keep everyone updated.Ditching the stock hobbit head
Great advice!! Thank you Cheetah and Pancake!When I get off work,I will be putting the New stock Hobbit head gasket back on as recommended as I did not lap the head like you have pictured, even tho it seems fairly simple!And I will recheck my Piston Ring gap as I do believe that may be my problem since I don’t remember actually setting the ring gap to a exact spec just eyed balled them and made su
Im not to sure whats wrong at the moment, I will most likely be purchasing a leak down tester to make sure i dont have any leaks.
***Update***I Put on the original reeds and did a compression test again before trying to start it, Im right at about 80PSI WITH wide open throttle,I also grounded the plug against the head and verified I have spark jumping on the spark plug when I pedal. I then attempted to start it and nothing again.Pulled the plug and it’s still Mostly DRY with the tiniest bit of gas on it.
Hey pancake really cool leak down tester you made, what is that black thing you have pictured in the first image? I’ve never seen that before,and I will be taking off the reeds today and putting back the originals to see if that changes anything and keep everyone posted the bike will not start at the moment but maybe the original reeds will change that
Bought a new crank with the bearings and seals and installed them and just verified I have the arrow on the cylinder pointing down towards the floor towards the Exhaust port so I don’t think the piston is backwardsI do not believe the decomp is leaking what would be the best way to test that? Shouldn’t around 75psi be enough to at least pull fuel into the cylinder through the carb?
Gentlemen so I went down the Hobbit hole and decided to rebuild my entire engine meticulously since I lost compression and wanted to put on some “Go Fast” parts, here are the following that was bought and Built.*70CC DR KIThttps://www.treatland.tv/honda-hobbit-pa50-moped-DR-46mm-70cc-cylinder-kit-p/honda-hobbit-dr-70cc-kit.htm*Stock Hobbit Head* Treatland Stuffy Racing crank with New Bearing and s
Great advice! Is there a head you have had good results with on the 70CC DR kit?I decided to get the DR kit with the Stuffy Race crank so I don’t have to worry about snapping the crank hopefully to soon!
Hey Mackenzie! I’m actually in San Antonio if you ever wanna meet up and bash or need some help with your Moped! Haven’t found many people here in San Antonio with classic mopeds but there are a few of us!
I appreciate the advice Gentleman, when I got the bike it had some Chinese clone and the Carburetor I do have on it was the closet thing I found to stock was a Wabron from Treatlandhttps://www.treatland.tv/16mm-honda-hobbit-pa50-clone-carb-p/16mm-hobbit-clone-carb.htmAny Jet Recommendations tho Keihin 92-95 ?It seems like I’ll get everything except the Mikuni Carb as y’all are recommending to stic
Ahh thank you for the advice on the crank, That avoids a future headache! And your right I’ll need a gasket for the crank case correct as I believe the crank itself comes with the crank seals and the DR kit comes with the other gaskets.I do have a spare Reed gasket from Trick Metric that I can use when putting the reeds back on but I meant to add,any recommendations on REEDS?Do I need to run these
Hello gentleman, so I have finally lost compression on my stock Hobbit, only getting 25psi on Mycornwell Tools Compression Tester.So after tearing down the motor, the Piston head is scratched as well as the piston sleeve. While I’m this far in to my rebuild I’ve decided to do a complete overhaul and replace all seals and upgrade my internals to give me a little more Speed.The bike has a PROMA Perf

Hey Marin, I’m also newer to this Hobby and Im 21 so i know what it’s like being around your age and getting into this hobby on a realistic income for someone or age compared to being grown and having play money for everything.Vintage Mopeds are definitely something that the older cats appreciate and it turns heads but it’s definitely not the cheapest hobby especially when finding parts I saved a
If your ever in Texas I’ll trade you for my restored Hobbit I’m finishing up on(Here’s a little sneak peak Its almost finished)
Thanks a lot guys for the quick reply it’s greatly appreciated! Lady I spoke with wanted $250 and I haven't even seen the condition in person yet but based off what Motörhead listed on what the bikes needs, the bike to me doesn’t seem worth the price especially when the end results isn’t much to strut around on even when restored I think ima just pass on this one and put a little more cash in
