MAN THE HATE IS REAL I THOUGHT THIS WAS A 49cc TWEAKR CLUB LOL! THISIS WHAT IM THINKING ABOUT GETTING ILL HAVE TO ASK MY PEEPS
Nahhh. If you want hate we could tell ya to run a the largest CC kit, get the biggest carburetor and run the stock jetting and no air filter. Remove the cooling shrouds and fan. Shave the head till you get 275+ psi compression, and run diesel fuel. Stickers, lots of stickers.
Most forums are ran by websites that sell aftermarket parts. They will tell you anything you want to hear to get the sale. This one isn't.
If you notice, the majority of the feedback is on the conservative side, If you are a pro builder and know every trick in the book then go big. Conservative = Longer lasting, less problems.
You don't have to take our advise.
All of us here want you to be successful and will speak up if they thought you were doing something that would fail, or would be a waste of money.
PS, DONT run a the largest CC kit, get the biggest carburetor and run the stock jetting and no air filter. Remove the cooling shrouds and fan. Shave the head till you get 275+ psi compression, and run diesel fuel. Stickers, lots of stickers.
You should be safe with the stickers tho.

GOOD GOLLY GOSH I GET ALL THAT LOL IM JUST ASKING WHAT PARTS IF ANY WOULD BE GOOD ALL I HEAR IS WHAT CC KIT I SHOULD GET BUT IM WONDERING ABOUT EVERYTHING ELSE I MIGHT NEED YA KNOW THEN I CAN INVEST IN PARTS! EXCLUDING THE BBK KIT WHAT WOULD MAKE ANY BBK MORE STABLE NEW CRANK ARM? OIL PUMP AND SPROKET? ANYTHING! I NEED A LIST AND ILL CHECK IT TWICE SOOOO HOW ABOUT THIS 80CC KIT
I wouldn't worry abut the oil pumps in aftermarket kits. I don't know that they're anything special. Actually, a seller of a combo kit once told me it was just another stock pump. Don't let it be a deciding factor.
BBK is my #1 choice. 47mm bore for most. 50mm+ if power is more important than reliability and/or you are willing to put more time into setting it up. You could try an HD crank and hope that helps the 50mm+ stuff, or maybe even a stock Taiwan made crank like some Kymco scooters would use. 47mm kit is easier and cheaper than all of that.
A cam would be my second choice for an upgrade. They have been known to make a nice difference.
A big valve head could be a good choice, or a bad one. Sometimes they are so large that they ruin compression.
Exhaust, big carb, air filter, and ignition are generally fairly insignificant gains. I'd prob consider a quality variator before that, unless you just want a loud bike with a shiny pipe.
Most of the kits are fine, and most are the same generic stuff. I think I said it before, but BBK, cam, variator, and then dialing in the carb and CVT are the things where you should see the most gains. Find a kit with that stuff or buy individually. One thing that has a bad rep are cheap variators. DLH and Koso are the most notorious, but I'm sure there are others made the same with different or no stamps on them. They fail quickly for many. With cheap BBKs, the most common issue I know of is piston rings. If you do have a problem, you can buy Taiwan made rings. The kits that have some tuning parts will give you a start at collecting bits to get in tune. I suspect most roller kits won't be the best quality, and I like sliders anyway.
Exhaust, air filter, etc... is fine to install, just probably not the most for your money. You have to look around and figure out exactly what you want and what you want to pay for.
Swampy, you are posting on a thread from 2016..... Better to make a new post.
FWIW, there is/was a store near Tampa/St Pete Florida that sold Wolf brand. There may be one in Gainesville, and another in one of the Carolinas(Chapel Hill? it's a college town anyway). Search with one of the directorys, such as DuckDuckGo, and you will find vendors. tom
It's not how hard you work, it's how much you get done. simplificate & add lightness

Yes. Our local place dropped the Kymco line and took on the Wolf scooters here in Missouri. So they are out there. No idea about parts pricing on that brand.
