70CC Moped how fast

TO 70cc OR NOT TO 70cc, that is the question....

Whether it is nobler to back up traffic and be a slug up hills, or to suffer the slings and arrows of an unpredictable 70cc conversion (which may blow up in your face)?Okay...this is complicated. I bought my Vino with the full intention of acommplishing two things; 1) Saving money at the gas pump. 2) Not having to deal with the time, trouble, and cost of getting a moto endorsement for my license. Here is what happened; the stock 50cc bike proved too slow to keep up with traffic, and so I sought ways on the internet to make the lil' Vino go faster. First came "de-restriction"; nice, but still I needed more speed. Next came the Airsal single-ring 70cc kit, which ran great for about two months until it ate the wrist pin bearing on my way to work. So to fix that problem I bought the KRD beefy wrist pin unit from Moped Hospital. Bike ran good for about 6 months and then the damn wrist pin clip worked itself out and destroyed the motor. Okay, now I'm on engine rebuild Number-3, what to do different this time? I decided to get the Airsal 2-ring piston kit. I like the quality, fit and finish of Airsal, so I stuck with that brand despite earlier problems. Well, the 2 ring kit proved to have so much compression I could not use my electric starter, plus it was killing my ankle to kick start it. After about 200 miles the bike got harder & harder to kick start, I haven't the foggiest notion why, so I just gave away the Vino for $200.00.

Conclusion...I don't know if I can recommend the 70cc build-up. If I had to do it all over again I think I would just go with an Arrow extreme pipe and larger Michelin S-1 rear tire with maybe a stronger rear torque spring and the Zuma #80 main jet. At least you won't be committing "engine-cide" as the 70cc's just don't seem to hold up for long (at least they didn't hold up for me). Good luck to Thee and Thine, I gave up and bought a 125 Honda Elite.

I love my 50cc Kymco scooter for running around town, but it's almost embarrassingly slow to climb even moderate hills here in the flatlands of the Twin Cities. Sacramento is hillier, no? You may want to look at something a little more powerful, 150 to 250cc maybe, though it would probably require a motorcycle endorsement for your drivers' license. Just my opinion -- there are times when I think I should have bought a bigger scooter.

    I have a 50cc moped that goes around 25-30mph and up hills 15mph whats the best way to get my bike faster?

    • First things first. De-restrict. There are different ways that that mopeds are restricted. You'll have to check by your particular model. But a popular method is that a "washer" is welded into the exhaust. Take …have a mad fabrication skills, graft a liquid cooled dirtbike cylinder and piston from an 80, 125, or heck, if you are feeling dangerous and are not concerned with your imminently shorter life span, from a 250cc dirtbike.

    My Moskito MZ 50cc moped only does about 42MPH on flat ground. I would like to make it faster. What should I do to do this? Also, does anybody know where the restrictor plate is on this moped?

    • It's a scooter, not a moped and if you can go 42 MPH, then its already derestricted.

      You can try changing the exhaust or upgrading it to 70cc, but thats not exactly legal, so don't get caught flying down the road at 50 MPH.
      Check with Moped Hospital, they are the performance upgrade experts can probably find you a new pipe which might get you a few MPH more.
