Hey... can you explain why this scoot is not that much fun to ride ? Is it quick off the start ?
they tend to bog quite a bit on the low end, because they were tuned at the factory for fuel emissions and top end. Story I heard was they were originally supposed to have a 25mm PHBL carb, but, swtiched to 20.5mm carb for the above reasons. Most common upgrade is the 25mm conversion, and, I can attest to the fact that it solves all the bottom end bog, and makes the bike alot more fun to ride in the city. Highly recommended mod. When I switched to the bigger carb, it made quite a noticeable difference. Switching to lighter roller is supposed to really add to that. I've got the rollers, but, never got around to swithcing them out.
