I went up two teeth on the front sprocket, and threw a new gold race chain on for good measure. Bought me a few mph and feels great. Holds on to first gear longer which actually helps acceleration. It did take a bit of grinding on some non-crucial areas of case and cover, but its totally worth it.








I also upgraded to a new Sprint side cover since I deleted the oil injection BS.
Painted the rear wheel with VHT wheel paint and slapped a new Sava/Mito tire on with a new Sava tube.

I'm hitting at least 50 when it winds out.
Next mod will be upgraded brake shoes and new brake cables. And of course- more jetting and slide mods.

Fastest I've ever taken my bike was 105...on a slight downhill, my chests on the tank, head as low as i could behind the bar...and the whole thing was shaking like you wouldn't believe it!
Baseline Sporties are not meant for speed, just looks lol

Old pic of a couple of lil mods i had done to it:

mpg

Hi,

I ride a 1994 Yamaha xt225 and it goes 65 no prob (but that's about it) and it gets 75mpg. I don't get it because i ride it like i stole it and it still gets great mpg.

Those with some street tires, clean up the tail....looking mean!
I had an MZ Baghira Motard, with aftermarket ducati exaust with reroute to mount under the tail, I had repositioned the tag center but more inside and under, all black....not a "zipper", but that 650cc agile bike was super fun to ride!
Until an @$$hole limo driver cut me off, I broke my wrist in 3 points, and the other hand has never been the same....

sometimes i think Small engines do better when you drive them hard...

I have a smart-car and it seems when I take off and accelerate quick and go 70+ in it that I get better mileage than when I grandma-drive it...

then theres my pickup truck with a Big engine and you can practically see the gas gauge go down if you romp on it..

Picked up a RAD scooter yesterday. 1997 Honda Elite S! 50cc of two stroke Honda fury!
Low miles, older British lady owner, garage kept, and ALL stock!


Sold my CH80 to buy it and had a couple hundred left over!
Feels good to find THE one I've been wanting. Oh- and I got a ton of bus work done too! Good week!
