Thanks. I've had this pipe for a few months and I'm just afraid of the headaches that could be involved. I've never re-jetted a carb but I'm willing to try. I'd just hate to F it up as its been a reliable scooter. I kind of wish I'd just bought another stock pipe.

That canister and hose is part of your emissions system on the stock pipe. It's meant to allow a little air to get into the pipe (hence the reed valve and filter), to help heat up the catalytic converter to burn off the leftover 2t oil and hydrocarbons. If your aftermarket pipe doesn't have a built...

Re: Rental scoots

Here in Atlanta they have a bunch of electric little scooters like the Razor type. They are everywhere. You just pick one up wherever you happen to be and leave it when you're done. I don't know how the rent works since I rarely go into Atlanta. The point is, there have been so many fatalities on t...

I've ridden one and it has very good engine pep. I fit on it nicely as well. I would try sitting on one and making sure the dealer you purchase from is a good one and has a mechanic that can fix warranty issues.

I would also consider a BV350 if you are wanting to get into that class. Have fun.

With the prima pipe, you may actually want to upjet slightly. Even with the elevation change. If you were at 0 elevation, you'd want to run a 40 idle and 90 main. The roughhouse came stock with a 35 idle and 82 main, and I'd suggest going to a 38 idle and 86 main based on your elevation. Also, the ...

The roughhouse is a tough scooter. I have a 2016 Roughhouse Sport. You should keep in mind though that upgrading to performance bits will make your scoot less reliable. You are pushing the limits with these upgrades, which is fun, but if you're a daily rider I advise against it.
