I ordered a final gear when the other mods were getting done but I was told when it got put in it did not fit right so I still have the stock gear in. I went with what scooterworks recomended for a final drive to start with and I still want to do it, just need to talk to them again and see what fits.

Is there a bigger replacement or a way to get more power to be able to run more electrical stuff? I recall there being stator talk on here before but didn't find any info on this.

The cost will vary depending on if you do it yourself or have a shop do it (however much they charge per hour) also if the parts are on sale or not. I got most of mine on sale through scooterworks.

intake manifold and valves

$60 for this?

Would it be pretty easy just to fab something like this at home?


Scooterworks also has stainless steel racing valves- any benefits to those?

So has anyone put on the 26mm ncy carb they offer at scooterworks with the 161cc kit? I did a search and found nothing about someone doing it. Sound someone switching to a mikuni carb-24mm-still the same size as the buddy, right?

Which rear shock to get, the NCY or one of the YSS one's? If a YSS which one? Is NCY the only one with a replacement front shock, or the only one worth considering?
