If you get the 80cc kit you'll always wonder about the bigger kit. I say go big
Thanks Millsc, that is kinda true... I originally thought that 63cc was enough because it's just a little more than stock, but now I'm struggling with 40mph and figuring out roads I can take where I won't get squashed. a good and big bbk would finally mean the end to cars passing and honking at me...
Will running the stock carb restrict the power of the scoot? And if it restricts power does that mean it will last longer? Are there ways to extend the life of it all or keep it just under its pinnacle power to lessen the stress on the parts?
I think I have just enough technical know-how to install a bbk, but fixing anything that goes wrong afterwards is another story...
HiIf you don't abuse the power and keep the rpms to a reasonable upper limit quite a long time I've got close to a year and over 4,000 miles on my 4t 95cc BBK scoot with no major issues I did go with quality components such as NYC and DR PULLEY Take care and ride safely dear friend Yours Hank
That sounds great compared to the stories I've read posted by miscelanious users on other forums saying they only got theirs to last 2k miles before something snapped. How much more life do you expect out of the scoot?

I've come a long way in upgrading my scooter (http://www.scootdawg.net/showthread.php?t=53309) and I feel it's time to get a BBK (http://www.scootdawg.net/showthread.php?t=53311)
Only problem is... I'm not sure whether to get the long lasting 72cc kit with performance camshaft to settle for speeds of possibly 45mph, or to get one of the 80cc+ kits and sacrifice some engine life for power.
How long will my engine last if I'm riding it every single day with a 49cc vs. 63cc vs. 72cc vs 85cc vs. etc.?
I'm sure this question has been answered before, but I'm making this post anyway.
Lately I've gotten my scooter running great. Even though I've gained weight and now weigh 260lbs I can easily accelerate all the way up to 40mph. I've adjusted my idle and a/f for a nice responsive throttle and achieved the highest idle without my tire moving, and I adjusted my valves not too long ago.
Now the only problem I have is that my scooter occasionally dies at idle, but only when going back into idle from accelerating a bit. It starts right back up, but what on earth could be causing this?
I had been desperately searching for an affordable scooter for years until I came across my sweet Chinese Peace Sports 50.
When I got the bike there were a number of things wrong with it, from a bad battery all the way to backwards mirrors, but with a lot of work and tlc no one is passing me on the road anymore as they were on my honda zook.
The original asking price for my chinese scooter was $900, but I was able to trade a laptop and nabi2 tablet for it, it's still worth every penny. But as others have said; you must be willing to get your hands dirty. A proper PDI will bring multiple issues to your attention right off the bat and that's a given. Many things need to be replaced, from the fuse to the gas line, and the initial repair may never end; luckily the parts are cheap.
I love Chinese scooters because they're the only kind of scooter within my price range. I had to trade up through craigslist to attain my beautiful busted up Chinese scooter, and essentially worked hard to earn it. In order to maintain the scooter properly you're going to have to cherish it as much as the typical minimum wage Chinese worker would when he or she scrounges and saves up for one.
I later found out that I had what is known as a "Secret 60", a 63cc engine disguised as a 49cc, and that's a plus you can only find in the bizarre quality of Chinese scooters.
