I don't think it's likely though it could happen. It's best to play it safe. If you want an upgrade, get a performance pipe!
I had one, I still do actually (long story)..but I never had trouble getting spark while turning it over. The difficult thing to do is check for spark, because the kick-stand is so weak. I recommend getting two or three of your friends, putting the lightest one on the bike, and have the others hold it up while you check for spark.I never had any electrical problems on mine, but the carb did need
I once had a bike that wouldn't start and in the process of trying to get it going I flooded with engine.Someone suggested taking out the plug and pedaling to remove the gas through the plug hole.Gas shot out of the engine and went a good 10 feet.The moral of the story. Make sure no one is smoking in front of the bike when you do that.PS: I miss you baby. I hope you're dragging on a N
I know this sounds simple, but look in carb...is the throttle slide sitting where it normally does?
The idle screw is on t he right side of the carb when it's mounted. You'll see it, it's the one with a spring on it. Try moving it in and out to see if the idle gets better.can you tell if it is idling high or low?
It's a Negrini with a Franco Morini Engine. I don't know the model, but it is a moped (it has pedals) and a three speeds manual transmission.
I'm working on getting an older moped out on the street. It had a set of bulbs in the taillight that looked like glass cylinder fuses I've seen before. I thought they'd be very hard to find, so I re-wired it and put in a socket fot a two filament bulb instead.The problem: when I hit the brake, the running light goes out and the brake light is dim.Any suggestions?-Thanks (as alway
Thanks for all of your help. I wound up getting it in my stretching it a hair in a vice and them using robogrips to streatch it across the brake shoes
They fit perfectly in the drum. I did have to widen the side where the pin in the drum fits into the shoes though.
I'm not doing to well making a visual here, any chace you could post a picture.Thanks!
Well, that's the wierd thing. My old pads had the normal spring, but it's a really old negrini...I don't even know what model it is (check it out in my profile), and these are the pads they had at handibikes for Negrinis.I could always drill a hole in the show and use the old spring.
please help. I want to ride!!
I got new brake pads for a Negrini and they came with a spring that actually looks like a horse shoe, and I can't figure out how to stretch it far apart enough to put it on. When I pull with my arms, the thing barely budges. Has anyone seen one of these, and successfully installed it?I attached a picture of the spring.-Thanks
BJ at handy bikes has really large copies of the wiring diagram that I think are awesome.
I'm looking for rear break shoes for a Negrini...if you come across any, please let me know.Thanks
Have you tried checking to make sure you have regular spark, or cleaning carbon out of the exhaust port?Does it stall if you let it idle long enough, or is it just from riding?
I once has similar trouble with my Grande. There was a lot of oil coming out of the decompresser. It turned out my exhaust port was pretty clogged, and the oil needed a place to go...so...If nothing else works, I'd try taking off the head and cyclander and just cleaning everything really well.I hope this was a help...good luck!
Have you checked for spark?It sounds like more of a carb issue though. Try taking it appart and making sure the jet isn't clogged. If it's been sitting for 10 years, there's a good chance that it is.
I would take apart the rear wheel hub just to make sure one of your brake shoes is not off and jamming...but that's not likely with only 767 miles...however even though a moped has low miles, you should remember that it is 30 years old and things dry rot etc.do you have any manuals? I think you can download some from the MRA site and also zippy has them for sale.good luck
It might cause a rough start, but I don't know for sure. The idle port is located right at the base of where the throtle slide goes.I would reccomend getting a plastic hammer for future use, but fly wheel pullers are only about $20 from zippy.Also, hitting an aluminum case with a copper hammer could have screwed something up. Is it dented or chipped?
Just to update, I got it off with and impact wrench...
Does anyone know how to remove the variator on a Variant America. It's different from the SL
I got a manual for Derbi Variant with Reed Valve engines from Handibikes, and the engine in it is nothing like the one on my bike. I have a 1986 Variant America, and will be happy to pay for a useful manual or even a copy of one. Please, let me know where I can find one because I need to put my engine back together, and don't feel confident about doing so without a manual.-Thanks
If you're talking about what I think you are...you can fold us a small pice of and paper and run it between the points...but I could be thinking of something else
you can up to a 13.13 carb, and bore out the intake if you don't want to get a kit. If you are looking for a kit, I got mine at 50cc.nl, but if you're going to do that you'll need to cut the crank in your engine, and replace the bearings with once that can take higher rpms. Thijs Apekop made a really nice post about the whole process a while back...
Hi Jason, off topic, but just incase you didn't know...that sticker that says 25 on your subframe indicated that, that grande is the 25 mph model. You'll have to make some mods to go faster. I think one big one is changing the gears in the rear tire hub to the faster model gears....
The jet that comes with a del orto 13.13 is a 66
hey, on the other side of the gears, are the brakes in your rear wheel. If nothing else shoot some brake parts cleaner into that side of the wheel to eliminate any oil that could have gotten in there. This happened to my bravo, and I thought the brakes had just stopped working, but oil had gotten in there. I just sprayed in brake cleaner through the seam in the wheel, and I was back in busines
we did try another bulb, the turnsignals only come on models with batteries, but I'm not sure if they're supposed to work with out it too. Iknow that in my experience, they don't
I don't know what that means...
