Just curious, thatÃ‚Â´s a small moped Morini engine right?
Yes it's a 5.8 Morini motor. It's been trouble free for a while now and it ran great in the sand. I rode it that day over 70 miles out in the Mojave Desert. With a 47 tooth sprocket it easily hits 40+mph. Future plans are to install a 9.4hp cylinder.
Thanks for the answer, It looks like we both are Morini fans
They might be the cost of three HT motors but their definitely worth every penny!
Absolutely, in my case, I bought a complete damaged engine for 50 u$s, and then fully rebuild it. I´m amazed by power of this little engines, they not only have very low end torke (it can almost climb everything), with a 44 tooth sprocket my ride can reach speeds of 70kph, too fast for a bike .
I´m worried about the position of the chamber in your bike, didn´t get your leg roasted by the hot piece of metal?
Not at all. The pipe has a heat shield that's has an 1/8" gap between the pipe and heat shield. I ride in shorts all the time and haven't burned the inner thigh once. I even rest my bare leg on it when I'm riding. I'll see if I can dig up a picture.
Should I try it, I don´t like the actual position of my exhaust, I have to make me the time to start welding again (thing in which Im not good at)
I added a new picture of the heat shield. The sheet metal with all the small holes is an 1/8" way from the actual belly of pipe.
