No, HUGE is what you get on the carbed versions going with the pipe
and a bigger jet, but yeah, I guess it can work on the purejet too.

I've actually seen drop in performance on some FI 2 stroke scoots,
like the Jetforce TSDI with some exhausts so I wouldn't touch them.

I've worked at a peugeot dealership in 2003-2005, and am in the industry
again - I know every single local dealership of every brand (and visit them
monthly because of my business), that's 100+ dealerships only in Croatia.

I've personally sold a few of them when they first came out.
By 2005 or 06, no one was importing the FI scoots anymore as they
proved to be problematic.

Also, some friends have owned them (any of the mentioned FI scoots) and
I've been all over the forums (AF1 for example) since most of them existed.

If you got a good one, that's great!

It also comes down to fuel quality (which was poor here) and oil quality,
and people tend to be stupid and buy the cheap stuff, which these scoots
won't tolerate.

EDIT: ALL of them used NGK plugs (and very expensive ones, up to $20, 10 years ago!).

Time to keep it real.

Only the plug in the manual is needed.

I have an 07 SR50, same as pictured by OP. At about 100 miles I added a Malossi 70cc kit, new exhaust and V-force reeds. I soon sold it with about 200 miles on it. But I always missed the SR50 dispite having several other bikes (Daytona 675, R1, S1000RR). A couple of months ago a buddy told me he spotted my old SR50 on craigslist. I bought it back from the guy I sold it to, now with 3000m miles on it. The scoot still runs and looks perfect. Last week on a large downhill road I hit 65 mph, while it normally cruises around 55-58 mph.

I bought the same one twice, what that tell yah. Pretty cool (and fun) little rides.

Awesome Silverracer, same scoot twice.

So far we are loving the SR, been using it for running around town on. Awesome little scoot. We had a Hyosung Prima before and that thing sucked, even derestricted it was absolutely gutless, and slow. The build quality on the Aprilla is like night and day.

I never got an owners manual with the bike, what is a good oil to use, I was gonna pick up some up. Plus what kind of mileage are people getting before the oil light comes on?

I have an 07, derestricted . Everything you can do to the motor except for a big bore. Runs an honest 53 mph indicated. Love it. Fast, fun, cheap and keeps up with city traffic no problems.

Have fun.

The manual will say which oil to used based on the paid contract between
the oil company and your local scooter importer.

There's really only 3 types here, mineral, semi-synth and full synthetic, and
in any water cooled high power 2 stroke nothing but fully synthetic should
be used.

Since there's no way to determine which oil is best, ppl use various stuff,
or pick the best looking at the price tag. The most expensive oil here is
Castrol TTX or TTS.

These bikes are oil ssensitive. Motul Scooter Expert 2t semi synthetic, Agip City 2t, Motorex Power Synthetic 2t are the best options here in the states which keep sputtering at bay.

What happened to your bike where you changed to carb to begin with? My bike runs great with the F.I..

Most weren't so lucky.
It's one of the better known scooter fiasco situations locally (EU).

Everyone did the FI 50cc 2stroke in 2002-2003, and by 2004-2005,
they all went back to carbs.

I was "lucky" to work at a Peugeot dealership in 2003 and 2004.
Not one F.I. scoot we sold worked properly, and they were as expensive
to maintain as a 800cc BMW.

the 2001 ditech had 600 miles on it when bought this year, it would not idle at all, shut the throttle and it quit, reset tps, changed computer, both injectors, air pump, piston and rings, gaskets, checked for air leaks..a shop did all this..they gave up and sold it to me for $500 with all the extra parts, injectors, computer, gasket, rings, air pumps..I rode it around the block and switched it to carb that night..easy peazy

the 2003 ditech was okay, had injector issues once but when I saw how my wife`s ran on carb I switched mine to carb and never looked back
