Welcome the forum bobdeezy, relax, kick your shoes don't need to ruin a perfectly good engine with NOS do ya?

Just a little story on mph here today (true story). I was hittin 43.5mph on a stock 49cc slow pokey 4-strokey with a 56T stock rear sprocket. I've got 40.6 hrs. on the engine so far....break-in period was 30mph for the first 20 hrs. The only mods (if ya wanna call em that) are a homemade straight-pipe and an NGK Iridium spark plug....that's it.

If ya wanna enjoy your new bike for a couple years or so, don't waste your money on NOS kits, they will kill your engine in no time. How fast do you really need to go? If you want to go faster than stock, invest in a good carb and a proper expansion chamber and you'll go plenty fast, believe me.

End of rant....spend your money wisely, ride carefully and enjoy your ride for many years to come, cheers!
