    Scooter is used for daily in-town commuter, and Sunday road trip bike. Has to have wide range of tolerance for bumper-to-bumper, and 1-hour stints on the open road. Emphasis on low end grunt and midrange; no need for extreme top end. Typical cruise at 45-50, in town and on back roads.

    2003 Stella

    24/24G: 120 air corrector, BE4 mixer, 112 main, 50/100 idle
    SIP/JL pipe - this is a loud pipe, yo

    3 1/4 turns out
    Amsoil Dominator - autolube - will be switching to Castrol TTS
    NGK B8ES
    Top speed: 65+ (ind)

    Pulls from a dead stop in 2nd with negligable clutch slipping, from a rolling stop in 3rd with no slipping, from 10-15 in fourth smoothly, quickly, and w/o hesitation. Freight train of a bike.

    I'll will try to upjet a bit, and drop to the B7ES this weekend. Will post more if that tweak does anything good.

    Next mods:
    GS seat buildup
    Halogen & LED conversion
    Striping

    Thinking about:
    COSA clutch
    Fireball upgear kit

    hey, it was the only real scooter info I had handy!
