Re: 85 spree with elite engine low top speed

Ok so I have it all stock (CDI,exhaust,coil) and its still doing 38. I checked my rollers and they are 8 and 9 grams. So my question now is would this affect speed and what weight should I have in there.

Re: 85 spree with elite engine low top speed

Ok I checked the exhaust and it doesn't blow straight out and the exhaust port was opened up by one of the members on here and I deburred it and honed it.

Re: 85 spree with elite engine low top speed

I also check my variator and it's the better one with the angled Ramps instead of the flat ramps.

Re: New build idea

Nice bike Mike. It won't let me load the photos yet because the resizing app hates me lol. I found turn signals and a tail light I am going to use. I'm not going to need a chain, clutch or throttle because i am going to use all the spree stuff (hopefully). My brothers restoring a bike like yours Mik...

Re: High Octane Ethanol vs Regular Grade Non-ethanol

I use rec 90(Orv fuel) on all my mopeds. It is 90 octane, ethanol free and is unleaded. My elite 50 loves it and so do my sprees. My elite 50 does run better with a little bit (a really small amount) of aviation fuel mixed in. It also smells better :happy:

Re: Riding at Night

What every one else said and riding with someone else also is better. It's almost like a car you have to predict that the guy at a driveway might not stop and cut you off. I love driving at night especially on gratiot.
