CDI controls ignition and can not create black smoke which is caused by being too rich but a scooter would sputter before it ran rich enough to smoke . Sliders do not make belts pop that is BS . I have Dr Pulley sliders in both of my scooters and I love how they perform .
The jet kit is a must have in order to tune the carb .
I have been on the interstate several times on my 150 and yes certain places and times it was like a suicide mission . I do love playing " You aint passing me " on the streets and to jack rabbit on a green light and dust cars

I like the buttons as many of us shop at Harbor Freight , including me . Thanks again for telling me about Bike Bandit as my scooter dealer orders tire from them now too . I am listening to the KDFC classical as I like most music besides rap or yodeling .
I may have to get a Photobucket account so I can upload some of my pics too

Those like neato as I love " classic not plastic " scoots . I would think a single rear wheel it would be speed limited as it would bounce around and may cause you to wreck . I have seen a few trailers made for scooters and many on Goldwings . The other week I saw a Radio Flyer wagon with the front wheels taken off as a trailer . You would need to have tail and brake lights to be legal .

BEFORE you buy parts to make it a monster I strongly suggest getting some premium tires like Michelin , Avon or Pirelli from tires like I just did . Prices are super good with free shipping over 99 dollar purchase . I have street knobby and it is amazing how much better the Michelin PureSport SC tires ride and perform almost like another scooter

Larry you beat me to it . Are you the one who built a stroker and had it eat up variators ? MillSC I am happy to hear you are guru on wrenching and hope it goes well . Planning on Hoca or Nakaru stroker ?

Like mentioned you can have take off or top end unless you spent a fortune or buy a better scooter . First weight your rollers to see what you have . You can use stiffer clutch springs to take off faster with higher RPMs . A 150 often does not have a rev limited CDI . A Uni with stock head and exhaust may only bottle neck the flow .
My Echarm would hit 65 when new and 70 after break in . I replaced the 12g rollers with 12g Dr Pulley sliders and it went to 75 . I am sure it would hit 80 with heavier sliders . Unlike most mine 150 is liquid cooled , tall 16 inch wheels and Ducatti EFI . I got a warning ticket for going 72 MPH on an interstate by a HP who was curious what kind of " moped " ( his word ) went that fast . Note the CFMoto 150cc puts out 12.2 HP where the standard GY6 is 8 to 9 HP .
Now you can go bonkers with a high compression BBK and stroker crank from our buddy Walter at Scooterelements like the 232 Taidia kit . I had a TaoTao man it was a as I was used to Honda , Suzuki and Europeans . You may get some more out of it but it may not hold up unless you replace the engine and CVT with premium parts .
Those real screamers down in PR are not streetable and run on nitro not pump gas . YEs you can get more out of it with lil money or go all in but it may not last as long if you ride it above its limits as it will never run like a crotch rocket .

You can get 1k , 1.5k or 2k clutch springs to help with takeoff . Note stiffer springs need heavier weights . Try Dr Pulley sliders instead of rollers . I have them in both of my scoots and they are waaaaaay better than rollers
