Kind ladies and gentlemen of Moped Army, I'm asking for your help. I recently bought this Honda Express as a summer project, and while she's running smooth, I would like to get a little something extra out of her, 26-27mph just isn't cutting it on the streets around my house and I want to hit 35, which seems plausible. In my favor I only weigh 120 pounds, so weight isn't an issue. I have began doing some cosmetic and basic repairs to get it running, lighting, new tires and tubes, battery etc. But when it comes to new carbs, jets, heads, exhaust, and air filters I get lost. I've put together a list of parts that I believe I could tackle with my very basic understanding and knowledge. Any info is greatly appreciated.
I understand how a carburetor works, and how to tune it, however I'm uncertain what will fit this bike. On the stock head what jets should I try? Will my stock air filter fit?
Based on the reviews, it seems this will fit without having to trim the fins. This is important because I don't have a grinder or anything capable of doing that. Likewise will this work with the carb mentioned above?
This seems to be the go to exhaust for this particular ped, however it mentions there is nowhere to mount on the rear fender. Does anyone have any experience with this?
This exhaust seems to look more like stock, and is cheaper, which I like. But I have found little to no information about it or how it mounts.
With these exhausts is there an intake size I'm looking for? VM18 Intake
Do I need something like this with the carb mentioned above?
I will be posting videos and photos of the process as it goes along in weeks to come. If anyone has any info to help a total beginner like myself I appreciate it. Thanks in advance for your help!
