      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

any to increase scooter speed?

Recommended Posts

we made the mistake of not shopping around before buying one of those chinese knockoff models last year. it's a 49cc and it is just a dog. it was advertised that it could go low to mid 30's but 25 is about tops.

someone suggested an aftermarket exhaust system but those that I've see on the net are about $300 bucks and I'm not sure I want to spend that kind of money without knowing if it will make much difference. any other options? I believe aftermarket exhaust also voids the warranty but the warranty we got was only one year anyhow so it's gone already.

someone else mentioned opening up the current exhaust but imagine that would just make it a louder dog than it currently is and I don't know if it would do any good. I don't expect it to ever go 40 mph but if it could get up to 32 or 33 that sure would help.

don't need to add oil to the gas. a diet is definitely in order but my 150 lb son doesn't get much better speed than my 200 lb fat a$$!

200 lbs is not fat wink so watch your tonque "skinny", hehe...

Find in the manual (if you got one) what the rpm range is, and you might be able to adjust the carb or find a governer setting on it that you could get a bit more rpms from. You don't want to go too high though, or that thing will blow! Good luck.

The reason I ask about the 2 or 4 stroke is that on a 2 stroke they do restrict the exhaust on them to reduce speed. What you drill out will not make it louder the restriction is right where it bolts to the head. Yes it could be a 2 stroke with oil injection. They also will put a spacer in the clutch to keep it from closing all the way, that would also reduce your speed.

I have a couple of the china scooters and they will do about 35 on a good day.

I also have a 2000 Honda 2 stroke that was a dog until we drilled out the exhaust.

so is it as simple as pulling off exhaust where it connects to head and drilling that out if it's restricted? (probably not that simple for a knothead like myself...)

If it is a 2 stroke!!!! That is where I would start. IF it is a 4 stroke then I would look more into the clutch area. I do have a .pdf service manually for the 4 stroke china models. It might not fit your model perfect but it should be close and help you out.

I can email it to you but you have to make sure that your email will handle 20.5 meg. send me a email at (dghaman at arvig dot net) and I can give it a try.

A gallon of gas and a match should make a difference.

Beware that when you start allowing more flow through the exhaust you will most likely need to change the rate of fuel delivery. That could require a trip or two to the parts store to buy new jets for the carb/s. If you drill out the exhaust you may not even be able to have the thing idle without the choke on. Come to think of it, have you checked the flow of fuel to the carb/s? Even at wide open throttle you may not be getting enough fuel due to small/clogged and too many fuel lines/valves. You could also consider changing the rear sprocket to 1 or 2 teeth smaller if you want to go faster. May not be a bad idea to sell it and buy a different one now that you have a data point from which to extrapolate.

I have a scooter for my kids. When I bought it they asked the highest weight of the kid using it. They were then able to play with the Govern thing and go with that.

I outweigh my daughter and can still reach speeds of 40mph or so on it so they have to be very careful not to go over 35.

My daughter gets about 120 miles per gallon but if my son is riding it, he gets about 95 mpg

yeah, dads was really doggy, would only do about 20. It's not like he wanted to go 60 down the highway, just wants to be able to keep up with traffic in town!!! when I got on it and opened her up, that engine really screams!!

Honestly, not sure smile I did a lookup on line and found it. I believe it was a blue wire that was behind the "dash". try a google search with you make/model and see what you find, it's out there somewhere!!

    • Well the big tom slipped away from me Man He was big be was coming i ti my decoys but the hens went the otherway and he turned and followed  i drew back and almost gave it a shot but it was a wierd angle on one knee and i decided to not    i will get him friday when i go out next
    • The strange part is the better teams/points we had in the standings the worse we looked in the playoffs. It is probably a good thing to get some new eyes on the team and see what happens. I think someone else will scoop up Fletcher fairly soon, like players and coaches sometimes a change of scenery is in order. 
    • red polls and purple finches here daily for a while now. not many house finches.  brown headed cowbirds are here. flickers. Saw a vireo yesturday. 
    • Here are some pictures from my hunt.
    • I have not seen a redpoll in over a week
    • The finger needed to be pointed in his direction, after a few coaches got it first.  I keep reflecting back on the team of 2002-2003, Marion led the bunch in points but the rest was either rookies,  hand me downs and two goalies that got hot. Throw in guys that weren't afraid with lots of heart and they made it work.. 
    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
