Quote from: ADRay on February 22, 2023, 06:32:51 AMI had a Honda Metropolitan (50cc) almost 20 years ago. Fun, but you needed to have clean oil, overfilled tires and skip breakfast to maybe hit 38 mph. Worked ok for my 40 mile round trip Maine back road commute in those days. I would get a Vespa 150 if I ever went back to one.
Quote from: 94touring on February 24, 2023, 07:31:49 AMAny of the scooter experts familiar with swapping out rollers? I was reading through various modifications and seems as though on this particular model that going from the stock 15g rollers to 12.5 really makes a difference in acceleration and hill climbing. Those not familiar with what these are, it allows the engine to shift later so you're in a higher rpm and ideally weighted to the fat part of the powerband. Sounds like every 6k miles they get replaced anyway and are only about 25 bucks.
