PHBG idle jets

I picked up some more idle jets as I only have a 55 and the guide on moped army recomended between a 40 and 50. I got a 40,45,50. I also got a new needle retainer as the current one makes it really hard to adjust the needle height.

Peugeot carburettor tuning 2

Today I took the Peugeot out for a test ride and instantly noticed an improvement with a leaner jet (85). I had also dropped the needle one notch to the second leanest notch. It accelerated much better but still some room for improvement. The top speed has increases too I think but still having problems with my speedo so no figures yet. The one thing I did notice was if I let off the throttle it sort of felt like it was bogging and would take a second or so to kick in when I throttled up.
I did a plug chop and its looking pretty good.

Peugeot carburettor tuning

This evening I finally had some time to do a bit more tuning on the peugeot. I dropped the main jet 92 to a 88 and test rode it. It was much better than before but still a bit boggy. I swapped the main jet to a 85 so will test it again tomorrow.

Domino throttle assembly

The throttle on my Peugeot is a little stiff so I thought id try to find one of these fancy Domino hand throttles. Picked up this used one for next to nothing on the french ebay :-)
