For the record the front end I used is not the same as the 150cc Buddy's and is currently be developed by Enviromoto.com. Once we feel the product does as advertised we will release it to the tuning community.
right on, when I asked my dealer about using the nyc forks they told me I'd need to basically replace the front wheel as well as the fender with the wheel from a buddy125 in order to make it work. Glad to hear soemone's working on an alternative :)

is there up gear kits for the buddy? Since thats the one thing holding you back from getting more topend. I have modified mopeds with 70cc/carb/trans/pipe. but without gears their topend is still low. thanks

Can we get some info on the tranny parts? I can't find anything on scooterworks' website.

What about the ceramic bridged port top-end? Strictly race?

^^^^ Sprocket specialists custom cut sprockets for us for our 70cc Tomos mopeds when we were racing those. You just have to call them with precise measurements. 72 MPH out of a Tomos ( Yeah , I"m proud of that )...and yeah its scary LOL

...didn't mean to thread hijack...carry on. I am enjoying this thread...
Speed is only a matter of money...How fast do you want to go?

Hi again,

Sorry we have been away so long. Our race team has taken off and we have been super busy tuning those bikes and holding events ect.

Here is a link to the ceramic coated bridged exhaust kit.

Here is a link to our transmission parts.
