Wow, my moped now has enough miles on the new piston and sleeve that I feel comfortable pushing it. I had my girlfriend follow me and I was doing an easy 35+ mph with more to go using stock gearing. That has been my goal all along. 40 mph next! I'm going to get a smaller rear gear and a new belt as well as better rear shocks. Again, I'm interested in comfort and utility over speed. This
I don't understand Terry. I saw the ad on this thread. I have more trouble with this forum.
Just so you guys know, I bought that super comfy seat with back rest shown above. I'm about making a utilitarian sleeper not speed.
With a bit over 100 miles on this project it pulls hard at 35 mph with plenty to left.
I'm so happy. I'm just breaking in this modded engine and it fired up after 4 kicks in 33 degrees. Mind you that's with 13 1/2 to 1 compression!
So far 60 miles on the updated 2003 Kinetic TFR. I have to baby it during break in but she wants to run but I can only let her trot. It pulls hard from 20 to 30 mph with plenty of throttle to go.
How do I tell which of the 3 versions I have and if the Malossi versions of lightened clutch shoes and springs are sold by treats?
I'm looking for an inexpensive tach for my Kinetic TFR. Any suggestions?
Does anyone have any experience fitting lightened clutch shoes and springs on the Kinetic TFR moped? My friend tried but couldn't get them to work. He mentioned that it would require welding and a lot of modifying. Anyone actually do it?
Decompression plug (damn spell check)
Oh yeah, it has a modded DR 43 piston/sleeve, a seriously welded in and modded head (the decomposition plug is gone), a modded Dellorto 13.13 carb #60 jet (because I live at 5270' elevation), an Enco performance coil and a Techno Circuit Exhaust. The lightened clutch shoes haven't panned out yet. Any suggestions?
Well, it's been awhile, and I don't have as many pictures of the modifications but it's up and running at approximately 13 1/2 to 1 compression. It's not even close to being broken in but it does run. I figure some nice warm weather and around 300 miles and then I can take it to the dyno for some initial hp numbers.
Has anyone else welded in the combustion chamber to raise the compression to around 13 to 1. That's much like a diesel engine and the spark plug acts kinda like a glow plug.
Ok, stock regulator it is thanks.
^^^^ Thanks Dandon Martino. Do you have a suggestion on a Coil? I'm leaning towards the Emco. It's the red one. That,the Trailtech voltage regulator and the stock CDI unless someone has has a better suggestion.

No one should post here unless they have read it from the very beginning. That would eliminate a lot of stupid, annoying and uninformed posts.
Thanks for your informative posts. Finally some mature, educated and respectful help. I will post more as I get more information.
Any suggestions on a coil? Is the stock CDI ok?
5 hp is fine by me. I don't need to go any faster in my town. I'm most interested in how quickly I get off the line and then to 45 mph. Thanks for your post.
I have confidence in Ray. I'll keep pictures coming. I'm new to mopeds but not 2 strokes. I'm sponsored driver by Go-Tech Racing among others. I do all my own engine mods and wrenching. I have for over 20 years.
I have no just being a rider. I race 1/8th scale nitromethanol powered off road buggies around the country.
I stated all the hop ups in the beginning. It's the DR 43mm kit. He's heavily modding the stock 12.12 carburetor even though I also have a Dellorto 13.13. He believes he can get more, and better, flow by massaging the stock carb.
JBOT, I meant decompression.
Rocco Taco if you want to see 10 hp maybe you should give it a try. I'm not necessarily trying to do that. I'm just trying to get what we can as close to that as feasible. As you can see from the picture from my tuner Ray he has welded in the decomposition plug and a good portion of the head so he can make major changes to the chamber. He's doing a lot of things that I'm not fa
I finally found a shop in Billings Montana about 2 hours away but they are the only shop with a dyno. When the Kinetic engine is finished and broken in then I will take it there and see what the numbers look like. I'm a bit curious but I have nothing to prove to anyone.
