The oil is not fuel so it displaces fuel. When the mix has less fuel it becomes more lean, and burns hotter.

It is important to only wave at motorcycles from the same country and similar displacement to yours. And similarly equipped.

Clearing the slow jet is a simple operation, and then the idle is right, instead of making the main jet do all the work. Manual is available on line.

I was told about this many years ago by an old Harley ride. A leather line with a lead weight will cure a dog of chasing motorcycles. No need to swing it hard.

I fell 20 feet out of the air of a 70 foot motocross jump 7 years ago when my throttle stuck wide open off the lip. Use common sense people!

I will just skip the 70 ft. jump.

2 stroke power

The 1984 chart claimed 60mph top speed for the 125 Aero, 55 for the 125 Elite. My Elite goes 55 or a little more, but with me on it usually 54. OK for an old scooter.

175cc

Maybe rings and a valve job. Hardly over. I have 75,000 miles on a 1985 rebuild that eventually needed new rings and an exhaust valve. And that is on an antique.
