I am in the process to repair my Vario. My rear hub needs new parts because of a bad bearing, the input shaft was damaged.
I ordered one from a local shop using part number I found online, and the axle had helical teeth. My own gears had straight teeth.
Herr Flick offered to send me a couple of helical teeth gears, but they don’t match…[Lees meer]
Yes. It is a recrifier, an ac/dc converter and a voltage regulator along with a 6volt battery. I use it mainly for my flashers. They are mandatory here. Police doesn’t have any problem with noise or speed (not always!) but flashers are needed.
So finaly after almost 4 months of downtime, my Ciao runs fine. Thanks to the help of Herr Flick. He send me a replacement carter and after putting everything back, it held idle and was able to rev up easily.
The shop although filled up the run down port, the inlet wasn’t airtight when the piston was traveling to TDC.
I used new seals, new…[Lees meer]
SuperSi yes. Air is comming through, even with the inlet closed by the crankshaft. I believe since it is a metal to metal contact, an airtight seal is very hard.
The shop filled it and the tolerance between inlet and crankshaft is almost 0.05mm. Can’t get any closer than this!
Been testing the carb though, different combinations since now I have…[Lees meer]
I put everything back, but It doesn’t look good. Still no power at all at low revs. I am calling this a fail.

So this is what I got from the shop. The bubbles tha created the holes, propabpy won’t be a problem (I think).. I will start to put back the motor after I smoothen out the intake a bit.
Crossing fingers that this will work……
I talked to a shop repairing engine heads, and he said he might help me. I would try to fix it myself if he can’t help me. JB weld is not available in Greece, and buying online will take time. Post office deliveries suck at this time.
I have found some products, like aluminum filler material for automotive use, able to withstand gas and oil is my…[Lees meer]
Thank you for the reply. I saw the marks when I dissasemble the motor for the second time, after I had replace the crankcase.
Can it be filled somehow? Can a shop repair it with a filler and a lathe? Changing the motor requires, apart from finding one, paperwork to the police!
I would like to believe that it is salvagable!
Also from several…[Lees meer]
Hello everyone and greetings from Greece.
I own a 1989 single speed Piaggio Ciao. My mother bought it new and now it is my daily driver. It has 19.000 km now. At 9000 k(3 years ago) I fully disassemble it and replace everything that was bad. Also the moped wasn’t idling at all. The list was:
– Stock cylinder bored to 38,4 with new piston and…[Lees meer]
