Your rollers could be shagged and therefore the variator is rattling. Open up the case and see if there is anything amiss. Check the fins on the vario, check the kick start gear and check the belt. If all seems well then whack some new rollers in there and report back.

I had a similiar problem with my speedfight. What I did to fix it was replace the kickstart pinion gear, because it had snapped in half and was rattling like a bitch.

So when you get around to taking it off, check the pinion gear. I recommend getting a screwdriver that has replaceable ends. Its what I used.

Could you take a video of the rattling noise so I can hear how it rattles, to see whether it sounds similiar to my situation. Make sure you place the cam near the transmission, and rev it a few times and let it idle. Thanks.

This forums is a really good place to discuss these kind of things, a couple of weeks ago I joined this forums and they've helped me identify a number of problems and solutions. I know nothing about scooters, just like you, but I'm learning Smile

Ahh wicked, I got my speedfight pretty cheap. The owner said it was a burden to keep taking it in and out of the garage because it was in the way. It was originally his sons, but he didnt use it no more so its been sitting in a garage since 2001. So I got it cheap lol.

But when I took some of the body panels off I noticed that this bike has been in an accident before, because I could see cracks in the panels, and some burn marks. Also it was a bit obvious because the bike came along with some body panels in a box haha. Oh well, I got it cheap. But I've had so many problems with it.

Recently I been having problems getting my ped to go over 20mph because I get no power when accelerating... So I decided to clean my carb and now it doesnt even start. Check out my post here Smile You can also see my ped in the pictures in there Smile

yes same i got my Piaggo for just a old play station 3 Wink its a cat C write off but it was only the plastics which seem to be damaged

but i'm starting to notice problems with it as well and i'm trying to sort them out bit by bit and i hope i will eventually have a fully working sweet moped ( touch wood )

and wow i'm impressed with the detail and effort you have put into that step by step guide ! nice work mate and i hope i can be doing that kind of work soon Very Happy

your moped looks sweet as-well Razz i'm hoping mine will look good when its all finished lol

and by the way how did you post those pictures and ill show you my moped now ?

Ahh nice, a straight up trade then haha Razz Trust me a ped is so much better than a games console Wink

I dunno what a Cat C write off is, but it sounds like its a ped thats had an accident and isnt road legal no more??

Haha good luck, what exactly is wrong with the ped anyway, is it just the rattling noise?

Haha thanks, When I have a problem with my ped I want to give as much detail as I can in order to resolve my problem Smile

I recommend getting a Haynes Manual for your moped, it tells you everything you need to service your ped Smile

Haha thanks, I love it so much Smile I am customising it bit by bit, to personalise it to my needs Very Happy

Oh I basically uploaded them to imageshack, then copy and pasted the link to the source image and put the img tags around the link. I will post some pictures of my ped and post the link here Smile

Heres my pics Smile Post some of your ped in that forum section Smile
