Parts Information

  • The motor is the same as the Benelli G2 motor.
  • The clutch is the same as a 2-shoe Puch clutch.
  • A one speed transmission is all these mopeds came with.
  • These motors came with a 14.9 SHA Dellorto carburetor. Some also have the 14.12 carb and the intakes change accordingly.
