Yep .. quite true .. always remember .. that the only reason these little mopeds are stuck way down at 2hp is because the government limited them to 2hp.
The modern manufacturers could easily... (easily !!!) .. make them make 5 , 6 , 7 hp .. with great relibility too.
Heck .. they made 50's in the early 70's that had 5hp.
So all we have to do is find all the obstacles the manufacturers put in place to keep them way down at 2hp.
(I can picture an engineer shaking his head and saying .. "let me get this straight .. you want me to toss out all our standard practices and slow them down on purpose?")
I figure mine is at about 4hp now ...
... and I am also going about it at the dirt cheapest route I can .. by scrounging old parts from old Jap bikes that I know will be better .. then making the rest.
If I wanted to spend money .. I'd get there much quicker.
I still don't want too narrow of a powerband either.
