    AS the title says, im stuck with a 49cc china girl and i dont have much cash. Should i get a new head, intake, and pipe now or wait a long while to get a 66cc and break it in first?

    usually a 49 is faster than a 66 on flat ground - hills are where they really differ

    few mods are worth the effort

    A good exhaust pipe is going to cost almost as much, or sometimes more, than an entire new engine kit, unless you have the capacity to weld sheet metal yourself, in which case you can do it pretty cheap. Also why do you want a new intake? I've never had any trouble with the stock one.

    two good options are:

    1-sell the 49 and build a 66

    2-keep the 49 so you can loan it to friends to ride with you and build a 66 for yourself
