Re: Are kitted bikes always so sensitive?

Re: Are kitted bikes always so sensitive?

kitted bikes arent that sensitive just take your time, read the forums and you will be fine. kit an E50. ive gone 50mph on my old kitted maxi. that was with a 14mm bing and Proma GP pipe. i put well over 2,000 on that bike reliably before i sold it

13 stock bikes sounds boring, stock mopeds are useless.

You?

Where would anybody that has anything to do with mopeds be?

Re: Are kitted bikes always so sensitive?

Me ?

I think mopeds and nopeds are great .

They offer a near perfect stating point to further 'explorations' .

As for stock , mine is stock and has given me years of carefree pleasure . I'll keep this one pretty close to completely stock for that^ reason .

Re: Are kitted bikes always so sensitive?

My stock magnum cylinder freespirt goes faster than most kitted mopeds. Dont have to up the displacement to see reasonable gains. Here's a picture of my cat, who is much more finicky than all of my mopeds.

I referenced "You" because it is singular as in one person, not a particular person.

The scope and history of stock mopeds involve way more than just one.

Re: Are kitted bikes always so sensitive?

True , that^ .

Re: Are kitted bikes always so sensitive?

GPS, i was also case matched. i forget what gearing i had. i miss that bike. it was all about clutch tuning and squish band

Re: Are kitted bikes always so sensitive?

Kitted vs. Stock is a personal taste thing. I've had fun on stockers before but I like kitted mopeds a lot more. Think its because I typically rode on 30+ roads and stock just couldn't keep up with traffic.

Re: Are kitted bikes always so sensitive?

All my kitted bikes are very modest builds. They all hit high 40's - low 50's and are reliable af. Find a happy medium with your tuning and don't get greedy with your want for maximum performance and you'll be fine. It's not rocket science. (edited)

No just a rocket with some science.

Re: Are kitted bikes always so sensitive?

Sometimes you don't need to be a Rocket Scientist

You just need to have a Rocket

Re: Are kitted bikes always so sensitive?

You said most of your bikes are V1s. Get the polini kit, bolt it in in 15 minutes, and you're ready to go.

You don't have to go crazy with porting and a giant carb. Keep it simple.

A 16mm mikuni and an expansion chamber will make it fast enough, reliable, and mostly trouble free.
