Anyone else got a Sachs Optima 50?

Picked this up today from a kid in the country. Rad ass bike, not sure how many made their way to the US but this seems to be a 2002 or 2003 British model. 505/1DY motor. Kid replaced the clutch cause "it was running funny" and then the clutch never worked again so he sold it to me. I put the old clutch back in and it fired up. Runs really weird though, only at full throttle and surges/four strokes. Draining the gas now since it's acting like it's got straight gas with no mix in it.

That thing looks great. Hope you get it sorted out. C or D engine?

It's got the DY motor, the successor to the D

How is the DY different from the D?

Top end is different, clutch is different, stock pipe is different. Pretty sweet setup. Here's the stock clutch plates and the exhaust pipe with the boost chamber or whatever it is
