Hi, Ryan!

I have alot of parts in store..for the Honda Camino PA50
But unfortunatly - I live in Norway. So the shipping the goods would be
expensive.
But if you take a picture of your bike - and place it on the web - it is
easier to help you.
(I have carberators and almost everything)...

Can anyone tell me how much my moped is worth... It is a 94 Jawa babetta, top
tank. Not mint condition, but in very good condition with no scratches,
dents, or rust. Everything works perfectly. the only thing is that the
pedal was messed up and i had to weld it on, but its perfectly fine, and
thats about it. has 2000 kilometers on it. how much should i sell it for?

I believe the normal compression of a moped only requires lo octane
gasoine.The anti-knock Qualities of gas is the number rating as this
additive is blended into the gas.All in all gas is gas,it is the
additives that make the differance and very few engines, beside high
performance types, need any more than low octane (87)

Subject: JET

Hey.... Maybe someone can look this up for me. I have a 79' Batavus Regency
HS and I heard that after the break in period (500mi) the jet is supposed to
be changed. Now I got this thing used with 200 miles on it, so it still has
the original jet in it. I've put over 1,000 mi on this ped so if the jet
should have been changed it should have been done a while ago. It only does
25 when it's supposed to do 35. The only way to change the Air/Gas mix is to
change the jet and I think I need more air in the mix. What should I do?

It would be easiest if you replied directly to me.
Thank you,
Jason

i have a 1960's honda 50 and the wiring is bad and the engine is not making
spark. its a really complicated system and since it is electric/ kickstart
there are even more wires to give me a headache. so i was wondering if there
is anyone who knows what might be wrong, like if a certain part always goes
bad, or if someone has a diagram of the wiring that they could send to me.

From: "Honda 2-stroke" Subject: Idle for HONDA PA50

You will find the indle screw on the carbertator, it is usually the copper
coloured screw, this can be adjusted by using a screw driver, and a bit of
wrist action.....

Have a look at this picture,

http://home.c2i.net/sht/moped/otherpics/P1010368.jpg

In this picture your looking down from a birds eye view,
the engine has been taken off the main frame, the top side of the picture is
the right hand side of the moped as when you site on it, take off the
plastic side panels and you will find the carb, on the carb there are two
srcrews that can be adjusted, one of these is the idle screw, I cant
remember which one but i am shore it's the copper one, with the spring on
it, as shown in the picture. The other is the air screw, the combination of
adjusting both screw will lead to a better tuned moped.

I hope that was some help Lindsy,

Picture was taken from the Honda Camino PA50 website located at:

From: MOPEDMOPED@aol.com
Subject: Re: JET

In regard to your question about changing your Batavus Regency's fuel jet
after the break in period the following is the logic behind this. A Stock
Regency for the 25 to 30 mph version uses a #56 jet 9:1 compression ratio and
a 17/39 sprocket gear ratio. The slower 20 mph version uses a #46 jet 8:1
compression ratio and a 13/39 sprocket gear ratio. When a moped is being run
its first 300 miles, for Batavus 500 miles it is recommended to run the 2
cycle oil richer to aid break in. It is also recommended not to use the moped
at full throttle or only for short periods while the motor breaks in. If you
increase the size of your fuel jet by one you will be letting more fuel and
lubricant into the motor with the same amount of air. This will provide a
richer mixture and also cause the moped not to rev out all the way because
the mixture is too rich. If you cant trust you self not to keep the moped at
full throttle all the time during break in then the jet is the way to go
otherwise just richening the amount of 2 cycle oil you put into the fuel will
do.

it would hook on the postivie and negative terminals on the battery. yet
still no spark...the points seem to work or what i have seen of them. is

though im not sure, i would appreiciate any suggestions, should i buy a

Sirs:

You are the FIRST site where I have even SEEN the name Malagutti MENTIONED.
I am in hopes that you might help me, IN ANY WAY, with the following ??? :

I have recently acquired a Malagutti moped, BUT without either a Users
manual
OR a repair manual, BOTH of which I would like to find and buy.

While I have been a mechanic, I know next to nothing about mopeds, BUT
would
like to attempt to get this one running. It WAS, prior to being put away,
running fairly well, as I understand.

After looking at your site, while NOT finding the actual name "Malagutti"
{MODEL ~ "commuter" ~ I believe}, I am in hopes that you might be able to
help me in finding manuals, and perhaps even parts, if that becomes
necessary
??? OR point me in the right direction, as far as web-sites that might
further help me ???

I don't even have an idea how old this moped might be, or even if Malgutti
is
still in business ~ {perhaps under a different name ???}

I DO own a Kawasaki 2-stroke motorcycle, and am familiar with the fact that
the bottom end DOES HAVE CRITICAL SEALS, which HAVE to be in good shape for
the engine to run ~ and since this bike IS old, I must assume that the
seals
are aged and perhaps might keep the bike from starting ???

If you respond, could you also tell me which lever, which as I understand
MUST be depressed to start the engine, IS the one to be depressed ???
There
seems to be a couple extra levers, over and above my "standard" Kawasaki
motorcycle ???

I do understand that the gas must be mixed, and soon will fill the tank
with
NEW mixed gas to try and start her @ 50: to 1 ratio, with REGULAR gas.

Last, IF you DO have some manuals, and or parts, and or other general tips,
could you please tell me HOW I go about ordering through you, with a credit
card ??? I reside currently in Lynn, Massachusetts.

here's what i did with 100% results...

take the carb apart first. most likely the float bowl is filled up with nasty
stuff that wont come out. get some ezoff oven cleaner and spray onto those
carb parts so affected. leave on for only 2 minutes or so, and then rinse
thoroughly. repeat if need be. spray it on metal parts only. this is
certainly an unorthodox way of cleaning out a carb, but was the only way i
could get an outboard motor's carb cleaned out.

Subject: Re: carbureator cleaner

Another solution which works well, but is corrosive to metal parts if it is
left on too long is toilet bowl cleaner. Mix up a diluted solution of toilet
cleaner and warm water, then put the METAL PARTS ONLY into the solution for a
few minutes, followed by a thorough rinsing. This works great, and I have
used it several times on old, crusty carbs. It leaves a clean, bright metal
surface.

Steve.
