Ive ordered an Airsal 70cc watercooled cylinder kit for the Peugeot so I thought I had better get hold of a radiator. I found this one on ebay and it was pretty cheap it does have a slight dent in it but is water tight. So now I have until my new kit arrives to work out how to mount it.

I took the tomos out this morning to test the new ignition and to see if I had solved the stuttering under acceleration problem. It seems to now be running perfectly with great acceleration and smooth gear changes. Plug is looking good too a nice chocolate brown. Heres a few shots while I was out and about.

The front mud guard or "fendooor" if your American is going to need to fabrication to get it re-fitted as the aren't any mounting options apart from the god awful look of having it like a mud plucking scrabbler.
Test run and MOT next

I got out today for another ride for about fifteen miles and met sinclairio who rode his Puch for a bit but was having problems with an intake leak. The Vogue was performing much better than the previous day as it wasnt running so rich so i think the jetting must be just about right and got up to a respectable 38mph on the flat. Unfortunately on the way home my exhaust developed a terminal crack so looks like I will have to go back to the stock pipe until I can get something else.
So yesterday I took the Vogue out with the large jet that I found in the spare carb. It was definitely running way rich and would 4stroke when I reached 26mph. But its low end was much more resposive and had no problem getting up all the hills. When I got back I checked the jet to confirm that it was running rich. So then what I needed was a jet of a size between that of the two jets I have. So I took the small jet and drilled it slightly larger. I will keep testing and enlarging until I get it just right.

So this evening I established that the Vogue was running lean by checking the plug and also the fact that I wouldnt idle without the choke. I pulled out my spares engine which has the same gurtner carb but this one had a bigger jet. Only problem was it was way bigger. After cleaning out the jet I installed it and the bike will now idle. Its boggy top end but thats to be expected if im running too rich but at least its safe. Test ride tomorrow.
