OK,Ruck runs good and thought about Met gears. Will it take away from my low end cause right now I like the acceleration. What else would i need besides gears on this mod.It tops out at 40-42mph. around 9,000rpm. Leave it alone or add gears? Thanxs Beets
Put the 80 jet in too see if I could get more top end,ran ok but sputters at the very top,need to do more runs/tune A/F mix to see. Put new NCY handle bars on,stance is better. Also got some new LED Headlights. Want to get red levers but can only find them for disc brakes.
Weight doesn't do a lot to top speed, it does affect acceleration a whole lot. Drag is what reduces top speed. Tuck in and you'll gain a few mph for instance.
So let’s think about that for a sec...
If I put a one kilo weight in a kids play wagon and told those kids to push it on a flat street over a half kilometer we’d get one top speed recorded.
If I did the same with 500kilo weight, you are saying that those two top speeds could be comparable over that half kilometer?
Not sure about that.
actually, to be closer to real life, today want to compare 1 kilo to 2 or 3 kilos. It doesn't take alot of horsepower to get to 45 mph. I think 3 hp is all that's needed at 350-400 pound load. If the vehicle already has the power to top out in high gear, then more hp won't get you faster top speeds. You would need to get taller gears of get the engine to spin higher RPM.
