Honda Met II Top Speed Test Run

Postby Honda919Rider on Sat Jul 02, 2016 6:06 am

Greetings all -

Due to "life" I've not been around much, but, long story short, I was able to bust out my daughters "Met II" yesterday.

My wife and I took a nice really long ride, and here is a short video of one section of the ride.

I bought my daughter a Met II back when they were new, I worked for a dealer, and Honda was dumping them "cheap".

Over the years, I made a few mods, and eventually, well, it's a whole new animal.

I filmed this with my cell phone in one hand, thus, well, you'll see -

I hope you enjoy, and it's nice to see the place is still active!

I love the view of WOT on the maxed speedometer. Pretty exciting for what was a Met II and now is modded to manage hills so nicely. No way I could have dared to throttle up with one hand and hold the phone for the camera work in the other. :-ss Kudos to you!

Keep on having fun. Ride safe.

My daughter had a talk with my wife.

It's her scooter, and she thinks I also need to not be doing those types of things -

To come totally clean, it is now a Met II in body work only.

I bought her a Met II when she was just a wee little thing, and when she grew up, I swapped the body over to a pretty standard Met.

Good times!

What all did you do to make it go this fast? Just curious.

Nitrification, this is General Chat. If you want to know more about modifications read that section (or use Search). Way loads of info, how-to and suggestions for mods to Mets in a whole section devoted to it.
