Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

Well well well. Looks like Derek, Alex, tyler and I have decided to see who can make the fastest stock ciao. Only piagio parts allowed on the motor except pipe. No kinetic cdi shit either. Points or stock cdi. Let the fun begin and the noobz cry about their 35mph kitted vespas.

I'm crying about my kitted vespa right now!

Just sheared a woodruff key... WOO!!! That means I'm making all the power right?

Oh and I just realized I haven't tried out my stock jug and head after doing case and crank mods. Now I'm interested to see how such drastic changes in intake duration and flow affect the stock getup.

And I've been checking out all the "fast" cylinders in this thread right here for port inspiration.

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

It means you didn't tighten your flywheel enough.

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

I've got a ciao now buddy

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

I made damn sure to tighten the flywheel all the way the second time!

That was my "spare" that was in it last, from the first rebuild years ago and was switched out before kitting. Maybe that's why it shattered? Haha. Shat. I don't think it's the stock og one, probly from cif rebuild kit. The metal it's made of seems really brittle.

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

Check your key way. woidruff keys are really only stress upon starting. If you keep breaking them you either aren't tightening the flywheel enough, have a messed up crank or flywheel or somehow have been installing them incorrectly.

i got 42 mph on a stock ciao with just a giannelli fire pipe and an 80mm rear pulley so 50 is totally doable

Or maybe the key was sticking out of the shaft further than the depth of the slot in the hub. Which would put the thing on there all wopper-jawed, leading to inevitable disaster. And/or, an SAE size key was used when a metric one was required. Woodruff keys have to fit just so or they will fail.

Wtf does that mean?

It's gonna take me a bit to even get it running though.

I was just gonna Reed it right away too, so I guess I'm out.

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

^ reed conversion a stock case. You're in.

Also I would assume you telling us how wrong we are means you're gonna go 60

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

I make no claims. I'll just build it and we'll see what happens.

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

We need pictures once these builds start

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

Charlie Mccharles /

Build it, and they will come...

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

Charlie Mccharles /

So what about this thing?

Acceptable? I wanna see someone try this with the stock crank and a dell13.13 still on the back too!

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

^not made by piagio.

Also that's a dumb idea. You should be rubbing a full circle crank with that case half.

I'll be starting my build next week. Maybe I'll bring back my moped blog for it.

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

In interested. Does it have to be piaggio parts form the moped engine? Only sold in the states? How much can I weld to it?

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

Parts can be from a euro motor as long as it was made by piagio. Shit I would argue that if you can find a super bravo 2 with a manual transmission that would be fair game.

The case, crank, cylinder and ignition have to be made by piagio. Pipe Gerard pulleys etc are up to personal choice.

if you have to ask if its allowed or not, its not.

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

^ boom. I would like to see what jesse can do. By that mean I want to blast him locally. He's been blasted by one of my ciaos like before

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

What if you make your own CDI setup?

(I've got a solution to add a cdi onto any stock ciao, really)

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

Does piaggio make the hair dryer you are stealing the parts from to make the cdi?

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

lol.

Of course replacements points made by Olympia are fair game since points are dumb and wear out.

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

So stock American parts only, on a ciao frame only. Deal.

heh.

Re: Fifty plus on a stock Vespa

I realize that I could come up with some really bizarre and quasi legit ways to make a really fast bike but I guess you mean keep it rotary crank intake, stock 12.12 carb (but be allowed to modify it of course). Someone needs to give me a ciao right niao.
