That was a very rare occurrence. Seemed to happen a lot more often to her than it did to me. I could ride the thing any where and hit around 35mph if I tucked like I was on my CBR1000 haha. It's just way down on power this year and I suspect I need to adjust the clutch as well.

I'd rather spend several hundred dollars and make sure it's reliable and can maintain a safe speed than sour her on two wheels forever. After all, she did wreck a Vespa 150 once and ne another occasion had to take me to the hospital after a 50MPH highside on a liter bike. It's a miracle she wants a moped!(edited)
