    What was original equipment roller weight?
    What slider/roller weight increased top speed, and what weight lowered it (but enhanced acceleration)?

    I am very happy with the scooter (knock on wood) and am finally going to get her tagged now that the county tax collector is opened by reservation only.
    She has enough juice to be able to handle the traffic around here in Southwest Florida. Anxious to see how she will do in the mountains of Western North Carolina where we spend the summer. Great riding there in Graham County.

    The stock weights are 14.25 grams. I went down to 12 and only lost 2 mph of top speed. I still need to mess with it some more to see if I can gain some top speed.

    Vince, I have ridden both of my 150cc Kymco scooters all over that area and they did just fine. They were a little slow going up the Skyway but just fine most other places. Even on the skyway I was able to go the speed limit most of the time but bogged down to around 35 on my Super 8 on the steepest parts. My Like with it's four valve motor was a bit faster. Running through the dragon was a blast and I was still running faster than most of the traffic. Your scooter is probably a little slower than my Kymcos but should still do fine.

    Win,
    Thanks for the information on scooter riding in the mountains. I had a SYM HD200 that I rode all over years ago and she did just fine. My current scooter is less powerful the the SYM but I think she will do ok. I have been riding 125 to 250 cc bikes for quite a while there so am use to going slow up some of the steep grades.

    Deals Gap won't be the same without him there:(

    I hope to see you there later this year and hopefully in Maggie Valley in August as well. You should bring the scooter for that.

    We will be there in another month or two. Plan on riding the scooter to the Maggie Valley scooter rally in August.

It has a 50cc Piaggio engine and I am looking to get more speed out of it. Want to take it to the mountains and be able to maintain at least 30mph with my wife and daughter in it. Do you think it would be a good candidate?

    I was looking at one also. My thinking was replacing the 50cc driveline with something in the 200-250 range.

    You referring to the scoot coupe? If so that would be entirely too much engine for it. Even at 40mph they are squirrelly with very little input.

    They sold and maybe still sell a 150cc version, so they must be able to safely go faster than the basic model.

    My county tag office is finally open again by appointment only so I will be getting the scooter tagged next Wednesday (I hope).

    You can just buy a GY6 150cc engine off Ebay or many other places for $300 or so.

    True but then I have to buy a intake, carb, exhaust, filter, wheel and tire, etc. By the time I do all of that I bet it would be about as cheap to buy the whole thing.

    They can go faster than that, yes they sell a 150 and I guarantee they are squirrelly at 50+ Mph.He was talking 200-250cc! Not trying to hijack thread so back to the main topic.

    Not if you buy a used 50cc tourist rental and make a project out of it. The OP was talking about being able to maintain 30mph on hills, not run at 50+, so perhaps all it needs is a simple steering dampener to get the twitchiness under control?

    I think you are confused. I am the OP that has the scoot coupe that wants to put a 150 from the ice bear vision in it. Steering damper won’t fix a short narrow wheelbase. It’s kinda
    like a can am spyder, until you get used to very little inputs on the controls they are twitchy. Also a laser alignment on the spyder helped immensely. It’s just the nature of the beast. I figured if I bought an entire scooter I would have everything I need for the transplant vs having to buy the little bits that add up quickly. The vision looks like a great bang for the buck for sure.
    Can’t wait to follow along on y’alls trip.

    That’s cheaper than I thought. I think I am gonna order the individual parts and the motor and get her upgraded.
