excuse all the grime. I've never even thought to clean under there from previous owner and it got extra oil from the rally this weekend. they just globbed a bunch of weld in there with two vertical pieces of threaded rod (or cut off bolts, who knows).

I'd probably re-do it by boxing it in I think...

Re: Pacer SS

Thanks for the pic!

Re: Pacer SS

no problem. It's ugly but someone in the life of this pacer solved the issue. for the amount of weld they used, they probably could have just boxed it.

Is it regular weld or something like JB weld?

Re: Pacer SS

Nice! Im sure those will work great for support.

I was thinking of this:

Cut the yellow line with a dremel

Bend the stop to match the red, more vertical and weld.

Then add support in blue the way they did on yours.(edited)

Re: Pacer SS

I have to wonder where the fresh oil on the spring came from .

Re: Pacer SS

Looks like a new spring to me. maybe he oiled it? Cause it aint coming out that clean from the tranny.

Re: Pacer SS

Oh he said from the rally up yonder.

Cool.

You're a guy ready to get down and dirty with this. I'm gonna assume you have a welder or someone with such. I like your thinking but will suggest an easier method:

Fill in the pocket on the stand itself with a piece of flatstock. Test fitment and results before welding into place.

Re: Pacer SS

Here is a Garelli stand I repaired. It had been repaired multiple times before, with welding and brazing. I elected to cut off the entire kick stand mount and graft on another from a donner frame. In my case the engine mounts are part of the center stand. When finished it needed a bit more lift so I added a shim as seen in last pic.

I suppose but how ya gonna hold it in place?

Re: Pacer SS

Double sided tape works wonders or it could be screwed down or a bit of spray adhesive . I'd use 3M spray contact adhesive , but , not everyone has that on hand .

Re: Pacer SS

Get it. Looks sharp! Learn as you go, that's my motto.....

He already got it the first day.

Re: Pacer SS

Yeah I could add to the actual kick stand, Live. then maybe i wont have to cut and just reinforce.

I have a little rubber stopper on it now but i dont know how long itll last it seems to get crushed pretty easily.

Yep Ive been welding since i was 16, used to make cattle and horse trailers, hog traps, went to school for it. Started working for a tanker company then realized it was too damn hot in Texas to be doing that.

Went back to school and got an accounting degree.

Re: Pacer SS

Charles McCusker /

lol god I hope it's real weld. I assume it is by how it looks.

Re: Pacer SS

Charles McCusker /

Fresh oil was from cases. it weeps a little after it gets hot, but after an all day ride it got decently wet. I had new gasket set on order but I didn't want to tear it apart before a rally. I checked the fill after the ride and it was still good on oil so at least there is that. It was fresh ND20 before the rally.

I replaced the spring before the rally because the old one went on an adventure to narnia. Couldn't find the right weight spring so this one is doubled over and it works very well.(edited)

Re: Pacer SS

Well, after a few weeks, here she is finished up, put the MLM reed block in it with .35 reeds, free flow, hacked an Estoril on it, hitting a quick 33 mph, axle bearings cleaned and running smooth. Running 13-34 or 33 gearing, thinking of dropping the rear sprocket to 31 to get to 35.

Anything else you guys recommend to get me a couple extra miles?

Re: Pacer SS

I dont understand why these things aren't going closer to 40mph stock now days. The new stocker i had as a kid would.

Re: Pacer SS

I mean its quick quick, ordered some new blue clutch springs so i can re gear and keep the acceleration up,

but yeah I see people posting about stock moped going 35-40 and i wonder what the hell im doing wrong.

I keep everything richer cause i dont wanna seize, but like a jet richer, nothing is four stroking.

Re: Pacer SS

I swear I'm not lying. I got pulled over too many times by cops complaining of me going over 35 mph in the 80s.

It was a big deal to them cause Indiana law stipulated back then that mopeds were to go no faster than 25mph.(edited)

Re: Pacer SS

I mean people were skinnier in the 80s, though.

Thats true I guess. I was probably 150-160 and about 190 now.

Re: Pacer SS

28 tooth would be fine in non-hilly terrains and yer speed might go close to 40.

Re: Pacer SS

I would buy it. I don't like supersports because I would pretty much have to register it as a motorcycle in my state. I like the motor because its tuned to go faster than the other pacers.

Re: Pacer SS

Its already been bought and running, Kenny.

I am a newly married guy, I will have to watch myself. :D

Chudas, It is possible to use the transmission gear and bell from an MO1 in an M1. The gearing is different so you would lose some of that bottom end torque but it would add to the top end. The M1 is geared at Z.67/19 and the MO1 is Z.52/22. I did this with one of my M1s after I broke the main gear trying to get it out lol.
