Honda PA50II (Hobbit) restrictor plate or pipe

I have a 1981 PA50II or Hobbit, and I was wondering how to remove the restrictor plate, or put a performance pipe on because I cant seem to find one online. I love my moped, but I hate going 30 mph, I really want to be able to get near 40 off of it, or any speed increase at all, if anyone has any tips let me know thanks.

i have heard something about them being rev limited by the ignition. im not sure if it is true, but my nu50m (i think the only drive train difference from me to you is i have a CVT) reals back at a certain rpm, rite around 30 mph. i have no idea weather or not this is cause by the ignition, but if it does exist, getting around it is were i would start.

Do a search, use the wiki.

No restrictor plate. The CDI isn't the limiting factor.

It has been reported that you can get to 40 by modifying the variator alone. Again, do a search for it, or go to the wiki.

Otherwise, yes, you could find a pipe - but they are hard to come by, as you've said.

I can't comment on a 70cc cylinder with a stock exhaust - you could search that to, or check the Performance spreadsheet.

WAX,

If Ned isn't interested in your polini replica pipe, I may be. Let me know.

And Ned,

There's some good info on the wiki by K&R about using a stock Hobbit exhaust combined with a performance pipe (cut the stock pipe for a header and weld a performance pipe to it).
