Re: Spanked bad by a metropolitan

You probably have the stock 6.5 gram roller weights. At 182 lbs of rider I would go with some 4.5 gram Dr. Pulley sliders.
This is one of the cheapest performance mods you can do for the C3 and will give you a bigger performance boost than anything else short of a big bore kit.

Re: Zuma 125 dirt road performance

The problem is the weight versus the lack of suspension travel. The back shocks do OK, the front shocks feel both compliant and sporty on the street without bottoming out. Throw in some rougher bumps off pavement with 100 extra pounds of vehicle (compared to a C3) and front forks with limited suspen...

Re: Zuma 125 dirt road performance

Thanks for the tips on the brake line and tires Gabe. I've seen the Just Gotta Scoot review before. I guess Dave Harrington is saying a dirt or gravel road is fine, but he wasn't willing to try actual "off-road" stuff. I'm hopeful the Zuma 125 can meet our needs, since all of the off payme...

Zuma 125 dirt road performance

Hey Gabe, I'm thinking about buying a Zuma 125. My HD 200 EVO is running strong at 5000+ miles, it has faithfully taken my wife and I on many 250 - 350 mile trips. A few of these have been extended excursions off pavement. The SYM HD200 excels at two lane highways, and we've even hammered down the i...

Re: Malossi Multivar Variator, & 130/90-10 front tire...

Gabe, the Malossi variator has some nice performance. However the price might be a bit high, I was getting very similar performance with the Prodigy variator combined with 4.5 gram Dr. Pulley sliders. Actual top speed of about 43 mph, downhill it could reach 46-47 mph before hitting the rev-limiter....

2012 SYM Wolf Classic 150 $1995

I have a pristine SYM Wolf 150 Classic for sale. It's a 2012 model with 875 miles on the clock. I also own a TU250X and a SYM HD 200 EVO scooter, and the poor Wolf just doesn't get ridden anymore. $1995 is a steal, location is Sierra Vista, AZ, about 70 miles southeast of Tucson. I've done quite a f...

Re: Are there any Interchangeable parts c3 vino zuma?

Many of the parts on our XF50 scooter are also made on the Chinese Mainland...The MRP (Dr.Pulley) parts I've used, though chinese made, have been of high quality, & are long lasting...<G> Gabe, if you don't mind me mentioning it again, Dr. Pulley is made by Union Materials which is made in Taiw...
