Thanks ^^^

I looked at those then dismissed them due to the smaller diameter 1 1/4, but I could always fabricate the loop and a bigger bolt depending on how they are put together. **ordered**

I also bought a very cool plastic razor blade, off with the warning stickers and zuma 125 stickers on the body work.



I am sure I will gain a few mph with the weight and drag reduction

I have been putting off the cycle computer as I am scared of breaking the front cover that I have to remove
The first time you remove the front you will be a bit careful and nervous, but after that it gets easier to remove. Its a 3 minute procedure at this point for me...its been off a few times.

The stock rubber is very confusing, when hot they are a bit squirly unless you really stuff it into the corner and get some weight on it. Guess like a TKC on a bigger bike? Up at 60+ it is not as fun as I thought, the wind starts to pick up and the larger bumps are harder to avoid

it is a fun product for sure, many uses.

I got a sheet of aluminum that I was going to make a rack out of for the front and back. Might use the pelican on the back with a camera mount, have to see what the fit is like.
I want/need a back rest of sorts for my son, I got the cheap sears top box with works fine. and with the pelican I have a mini topbox for camping and or camera stuff.
I need to figure out what this little charging system can handle. I would prefer to have my 2610 GPS and run it off the battery but don't want to risk a flat battery due to this or stress the tiny system. Might try and rig some solar panel stuff too.

lots of options and I need a project so it fit perfect.

oh! forgot the new mod!

I am certain this contributed to the new amazing top speed I was able to achieve.
I removed the safety decals and the zuma 125 decal with this bit of cool kit!

a little alcohol to get rid of the excess gummy stuff.

Went to the local Yammy store and splurged some cash ($22) on the C3 scooter model mirrors. A direct bolt on and make a huge difference in rearview, no more elbows

I was thinking of that route too, the blind spot stick on's do ok, but damn the stock mirrors are stupid on this thing!

oh and ride report coming up!
Got the weebeastie up some steep grade (steep for me, I am short ya know)

it ain't freeway legal here in CA, but I have had it on flat going 50-55 without too much problem. Down hill look out!

and if up hill, eh well...nevermind.

glad to be back home and took the weebeastie to work, needs its first service now!
