Congrats on the purchase!
I've put 10k miles on mine in a year, no issues, the suspension gets better with
time and you need to get rid of those tires before you get killed a bit.

At around 3000 mile mark they'll loose grip over night.
VERY dangerous on wet roads, average at best on dry.

(I put Michelin City Grips on mine).

Ask away if you need to know more!
I'm sure 'soboy' and me got you covered with that scoot!

Oh!
Performance upgrade?
Annoying flat spot until 40mph?

Dr. Pulley 13g sliders is all you need to know.
Same top speed, a lot more acceleration where it matters.

Thanks man!
I appreciate the tips. The tires are going first. The previous owner ran them low on air and appearantly that cupped the back tire. At about 50mph it feels way out of balance.

I've found some places to get performance parts for it. Now it's just a matter of deciding how far I want to go with it and how fast I want to spend money.

I put a little over 100 miles on it this weekend. I even took it down a logging road just to see how fun it would be off road. Well, it IS fun. Slow fun. Picking your way through ruts with your feet on the ground fun....but still lots of fun. I'm very glad I got this scoot.

By the way, I painted it this weekend. I had it less than 48 hours before I took it apart and destroyed the resale value.

The tire upgrade will be some Kendas like the ones that come stock on the Zuma 125.

Well damn that looks rather good!

I've been looking for semi-offroad/track tires for a while, nothing is available
locally in stock size, only /80 height.. and I'm not sure how that would go
on the yearly inspection/registration here.

A raised front fender might look good on yours now too!

Might have gone with the more 'military' look green though?

Thank you for the compliment and suggetions.

A raised front fender might just be nice.

I bought the spray paint from the local G.I. Depot and it is supposed to be authentic military green, but I'm with you, it doesn't look exactly right. I bought a can a few years ago that had the WW2 olive drab color and it was perfect. Unfortunately they had gotten in some different type and no longer had the good stuff. I'll keep trying, but until I can find it again, I'm afraid this is as authentic as I can get.

I should probably close photoshop now, right?

I dug my 2009 Agility 125 out over the weekend. Boy the carb was a mess, but thankfully very easy to pull it and clean it all out.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/28343895/K...Service-Manual

I rode it to work today. I'll need to get another 10 mph out of it, as right now it is topping out at 62 mph indicated (about 58 mph or so). I think that is possible with some final drive tuning and maybe some jetting tweaks.

One thing for you guys to check is the front carb boot clamp. Mine was bottomed out but when I looked at it I could see that the clamp did not tuck properly and thus the rubber was not secure.

If it had a tach.. you'd probably see it redlining around 55mph so I wouldn't
push it that far.. Even the sound and vibrations over 50mph suggest that it's
had enough. Hell, even the Xciting 250 is redlining at 67-68mph!

You could probably get a few more usable mph with 13 or 14g Dr Pulley weights.

Nice paint job!

I have 13g dr pulley sliders coming in. Still haven't found a source for those Malossi kevlar belts.

I thought redline was around 7500. Mine barely sounds like it's doing 5k tapped out.

Not my video, but this is pretty much what mine sounds like. We can try to ascertain the rpms from it.
