    Moped Technical Help

    Hi all,

    My Gilera DNA 50 is really annoying me now! When I go over 40 mph on it, it often cuts out

    I have cleaned the carb, had it up jetted, had a new fuel pump and it still cuts out! It happens 8 times out of 10 when i go over 40. What happens is i can feel it going to die so i either keep it twisted back or i release the throttle. either way it dies or it dies then comes back to life then dies again etc. I have broken down about 15 times since i had it and its doing my nut in as i normally have to wait about 5 mins before it start up again!

    I was thinking that it might need up jetting again?

    anyone got any hints/tips


    Thanks

    I thought 50cc mopheads were restricted to 30mph.

    legally yes. But mince came de-restricted and 30mph is too dangerous for modern roads IMO!

    Around here all the roads are 60 -70mph so I would say its pretty dangerous for anyone going 30.

    Obv this prob doesnt apply to sam as i dont think he lives in milton keynes :whistling:

    well i thought at 16 that was the maximum speed limit you could go (unless in receipt of disability alowance so you can do your driving test)

    but yeah.

    Yeah it is, but you asked why would someone need to go faster. :whistling:

    lol.

    People are legally only allowed to do 70 on the motorway but you will see most people go faster

    when you're on a single/dual carriage way, my instructor keeps shouting FASTER.

    I'm like 'Uhm, i'm at 25, this is fine'..

    As the roads to work and college are 50/60 mph. I tried going 30mph one to see what it felt like...well i was nearly knocked off my bike and people where right up my a*se...not for me thank you. So 40 is bad enough but is slightly better. I want to go 45-50 as it makes me feel safer.. anyway this isnt what his thread is about...its about helpful people suggesting whats wromng with it!

    Now who's the one talking directly at me?:thumbsup:

    PM me if you have a problem thanks :).

    er. That would be me. But, what i am saying is i dont care if people quote me and use what ive said. When you post on a public forum you post to everyone.

    I dont have a problem with you, although if i saw you i probably would have a problem with your driving :p. When people plan their journeys they usually dont factor in someone going 25mph in a 60 slowing everyone down.

    Right can u stop bickering

    Anyone else think of what it is?

    Best thing to find is a dedicated moped forum. Even as a n00b they are usually helpful

    Basically you are doing things to the bike it wasnt designed for, its designed for a uk spec and the parts are tailor made for the uk version, no offence but you can expect problems by altering one or two parts without having the whole mechanics/electronics overhauled to cope.
