what's the best setup for hobbit


new to hobbits, and was wondering that the best setup was to get the most out of it. thanks

Re: what's the best setup for hobbit

If you have a pa50i, "kit it" because you cannot bolt on exhausts to the cylinder without going crazy and auger bit-ing the exhaust port, and even then its small.

If you have a pa50ii a lot of people just like to bolt on a nice exhaust and maybe reeds and are content with the speed from that.

Maybe even notch the variator, throw on a new belt, tension it correctly, grease your rollers, etc?


Started with a pa50i and I took the kit route, with a nice exhaust, pa50i carb drilled out, pa50ii gofast goodies (intake + reeds + ramp plate)

Insanely fast, Ill have to gps it but right now I'm breaking in my kit slowly.
