a revolution lol, not likely americans are stupid but not that stupid, we will stay in our cars for a long time they are MUCH more reliable, cf moto got out of scoots because people stopped buying junk LOL
I hope i caught you before you bought a scooter, chinese scooters are the cheapest, most poorly made scooters out there, couple that with the fact the replacement parts are worse then the originals lol
your better off buying a honda or yamaha, you will pay more yes, but you will also never be wrenching on it
to read my real world experience with these feel free to visit
I was able to tune a gy6 150 to a top speed to 76 mph on the i 95 ( i reached this speed while drafting a 18 wheeler through nh) to get here i modified the exhaust, took out the egr system and evap system, also i upgraded the gearing, the roller weights to 14 grams, also i did the carb.
I would not reccommend that though, these machines are not made for reliability or durabilty, if you want to go fast you need to buy a 250 and get a honda, chinese scooters are real POS and you will only regret trying to make it work
stay away from chinese, on monday im filing a suit against the people who made mine for the pain i went through, though my story is somewhat unique
Guess i have to jump on here to clarify some things
first and foremost
CHINESE SCOOTERS ARE JUNK, this is from expereince they are not quality, they are not dependable, they are not durable, and i daresay that the parts for them are just as bad if not WORSE then the parts already on them, they come with cheap support, hardly any warranty, and are best suited for around town at best 30 mile rides at a time.
This is not to say that the chinese scoots dont please some people who pretend to turn a blind eye to the glaring defects they are inherent with (i myself made this mistake)
When this trip is over i will be writing a very comprehensive and GLARING review of said scooter
for those of you who so quickly chimed in with cracks like "i could see it all along" and " i knew this would happen" YOU WERE NOT THERE, IT DIDNT HAPPEN TO YOU, YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT, AND TALKING LIKE YOU DO MAKES YOU SEEM LIKE A BIGGER FOOL THEN I WAS FOR TRYING THIS TRIP!
with that said the scoot died because a faulty gasket was shipped with the engine, 2100 miles down highway or 50 miles back home it was a time bomb waiting to happen, case closed
as for the cop issue, i was within my rights to take the ticket (which has now been cleared btw) and continue on, i am fully insured thanks for that
speeds? i think the scooter is perfectly capable of the speeds we told you about, and the engine stayed at good temp levels (see report once trip is over)
I have been offered 2 book deals (premature) and a possibly movie of my trip so far.
My sponsors did the best they could remember they are buying the same chinese "JUNK" as we are so why are we any better,
truth is ill finish this trip and win my bet, and i have learned a lot on this journey, keeping the site updated is a lot harder then it may seem for those of you who are not happy with the blogs and photos you dont have to continue reading,
I try to understand that most of you write these things from the comfort of your easy chair in a warm home while it is I thats out here sitting roadside putting fuel in, dissasembling engine parts in the breakdown lane, freezing in sub zero wind chills, i really want to have sympathy for the "knowledge" that you all have so much of when it is ME that is really aquiring this knowledge
ALas im all done for now the bet is still on the blog is still being updated and i sit here before i leave for yet another wonderful location in sunny florida
as predicted lol sprocket chimes in with the answer, any idea where i might find one of those sprocket, and arent you the same sprocket that told someone on scootdawg that they would see no gains with new gears when in reality gains of 4-9 mph on the top end can be realized on a 150cc scooter?
so your saying ventos all had digital sending units?
Does the digital dash have a menu to change and calibrate the sensor buy choosing from a list of values or inputting your own value. Should be some what like calibrating the speed.
thisi s a chinese scooter lol, the box came with chinese writing on it and thats it, I HAD THOUGHT ABOUT A CALIBRATION screen however either it is not that complex or they are not telling. It has three buttons on it, H for hour M for minute and one to select between MPH and KMH
thats all though
i think your thinking to detailed, this is a wiring thing nothing more!
