I ride around and ask a few shops about pressing gears and I found a local boat/jet ski guy that only charges me ten dollars. It only take a couple of minutes. No write up or anything just puts the money in his pocket. I Can swap out gears in about thirty minutes. After the bbk it's well worth the time and money.
OK,OK trolls, I'll bite. You scooters put out power beyond all reason.
What I really think is any or all of the below: 1. You are looking at the kilometers per hour scale 2. Have an uncorrected speedometer that reads 10 to 20 percent too fast 3. With a motor that has been modified from stock 4. You live in Florida, and don't have a clue what a real hill is, or have forgotten.
Or, you have found your way to Xanth.
That's it from me, I'm done with this thread.
Have fun, trolls.
How is this for trolling. Bring youself and your scooter to Panama City Beach fl. If I can't do 45 mph gps verified with me a fatty I'll sign the title over to you. If I hit it 45 gps you sign yours over.
For a heavy rider the upgrade speed sounds about right to me.
Living where there are hills, and having played with variator weights on a 150 scoot I had, I didn't gain that much and the higher RPMs killed the motor rather quickly.
I assure you weight is the biggest issue there is when going up hill. A 260 pound rider is going to go up hill one heck of a lot slower than a 130 pound rider regardless of the variator tuning. My experience showed if you are large and want to go up long, steep hills at 50 MPH or more the cheap way to go is sell the 150 and get a 250cc class scooter or larger.
Start messing with the carburetor, exhaust, variator weights and clutch springs or whatever may be fun if you like garage time, know what you are doing, have the tools and place to work on it, but it tends to shorten the life of a motor that was running well before you started "fixing" it for very little gain. Still, I had fun doing it.
I have a very mild built 50cc and I weight 250ish. Are you saying I'm to fat for my scooter? I can run 45ish for long stretches. Seems to me that a stock 150 would do fine as I have stated before tuned right.
but, everything I said is all in all of yalls sigs.
No sir. The people running the a9 cams have larger pistons. And not many people at all are running a Stroker crank. The ones who do are not running stock pistons like you said in your earlier post. Also, even if they ran a 52mm piston with a stoker I'm not sure it comes to 100cc motor. One of the math wiz guys can clear that up if they like.
