Scooter Performance...

Discussion in 'Scooters' at netrider.net.au started by mr_sikma, Aug 26, 2005.

  1. Hey,

    Where i purchased my scooter from, they have a website with a list of different mods etc that you can do tour 50cc :D



    Has anyone modded their scooters at all?

  3. Take out a Yammie Tmax500 or the Burgman650....
    I rode the Tmax and shite, it was a HOOT.
    Goes like shit off a shovel, I ran outta usable road at 170, and it was still climbing...

  4. Valid point, v. I guess I don't associate those as being scooters (though, of course, they are)

    Mention scooters and I think of 50cc and 100cc!!

  6. Usually upgrading the exhaust will give you a little bit more power, the guys at Show n Go will be able to help you out more.

  10. 80km with ease

    hi

    i have an yamaha aerox 50 still running in and it can do 80km with ease without any mods. Mine is still being run in so i ease off and keep it round the 70 mark but the bike responds well for 98 bp fuel. The bolwell scoots i have been on and lets just say you get what you pay for. the aprillia was a bit out of my price range for a toy. I have been off my scoot due to being rear ended in my car and back being stuffed but got back on it today took it for a small ride and it was doing 80 in no time but i am thinking of a gearing upgrade to get it there faster. question is how the hell do i read the speed past 80 when the speedo only does 80?

  11. Re: 80km with ease

    You can get a push bike computer. It has been mentioned on the forums here to replace broken speedos.

  12. hey jase, fieldy, Brad..... I am finally here!!! :D Yeah I am thinking about a bike computer too because my needle went all the way back to 0km/h :D Someone clocked me doing 100km/h on the flat on my way to Wellington for the Pink Ribbon Ride.

    Very happy with my Peugeot Blaster 50cc.

  14. yeah I couldn't believe it either, but considering that's what half a dozen others told me (many many dozens past me) I take their word for it. I have no idea seeing my needle only reads up to 80km/h and it's way past that.

    The latest Scooter magazine (Issue 6) has tested the Peugeot Blaster and clocked it at 95km/h easily. :)

    I am very much used to high powered car (just ask Mr_Sikma) so when I shopped for my scooter, I looked for the fastest on the market. This one got my attention. :)
