Default Re: i think my "80cc" has issues. top speed only 28mph with shifter kit...

Under 30 mph doesn't sound right especially coming from a new motor with one of Palbo's kits on it. My HT motor right out of the box hit low 30's w/o the shifter kit. What are the symtoms at top speed?
Does it vibrate alot at high rpms?
Does it sound like its starving or getting too much fuel?
Is there anything besides the kill switch hooked up to the white wire?
Can you feel if anything is binding when you ride it around without the motor running or just spinning the wheel?
Another thing to check is your main jet. Remove the bowl and unscrew the main jet and use a needle to clean it.
