2014 metropolitan bore kits and set ups

Need a quick pick up and more general speed. Any ideas? A bolt on kit would be ideal

What’s “more general speed”?. How fast do you actually want to go with 10 inch wheels and drum brakes?

I’m sure there’s something in a kit available that can get the scooter up to 42-45 mph, but probably not much more than that.

You’ll get anywhere for 2-5 mph depending on what you do, maybe more. 50cc can only do so much.

The best thing you can do to make a 50cc after is less beer, ice cream and Big Macs, more treadmills and salads.

But yeah, you can change the transmission, BB the engine, all sorts of stuff. Get rid of the center stand and put in a kick stand, that’ll save you 20 pounds but make it harder to work on.
