Just wondering everyone, how hard is it really to install the 72cc kit found on enviromoto's site. I plan on purchasing this but need a time frame of about how long it takes to install for someone with intermediate mechanical skills. Thanks in advance.

the bench thing is out, i live in an apartment complex so work area other than my parking spot is just not there. hope to move into a house eventually but for the moment i am tied into my apartment lease. maybe if someone has the CD that comes with the kit so i can check it out before hand i can possibly get a copy of that, maybe you Indy if you have it or enviro will see this and will be able to get me a copy. Thanks again.
I'll talk to Jeremy and see what we can do on the cd. I've got a cd that came with my mrp 82 kit layin around the house somewhere. If you want pm me your adress and I'll send it to you.
As far as the apt thing, Just remove engine and carry it inside. All it takes is undo rear shock, unhook carb fuel line and throttle cable. unhook a couple wiring connectors' and loosen engine mount. You're good to go.
If you choose, you can install kit while engine is in scoot.

I've never done this job on a scooter but have on Honda trail 90 motorcycles. The guys here say that pulling the motor out is pretty easy so I'd try that and like he says just take it to a bench top and do the rest, could even be on a picnic table. As long as you properly line up the timing marks and do not drop the timing chain it should be a pretty quick job, putting it on a bench would save a lot of bending over and back pain, not to mention having everything out in the open and easy to get to.
I don't have any experience with the kit. However I can tell you that Mr. Enviromoto is an excellent supplier. I ordered a choke enricher solenoid from him and it was at my home in no time. Just what I ordered and I received it in 3 days. Honest price as well. Thanks Enviromoto. I wouldn't hesitate to buy that kit from him.
A society that gets rid of all its troublemakers goes downhill. I'd say we're safe :).

After looking at these two pdf's it seems that although I am competent when it comes to this kind of this I still might want to pass on doing this since this is my main transportation method, I would need to purchase a couple new tools or find someone to install for me.
to the others who HAVE already done this is the extra 10mph(most likely)-20mph(wishing) worth it on a 50cc. i am currently weighing in about 230 and am working out a bit to drop back down to my former self of only 200(or less) losing 30 lbs would add a couple mph as well. thanks again guys
now the only problem is coming up with the money, i had some problems with school and i am losing the loan funding because of it so the little extra money i had will most likely be going to school not scoot :(. i would still love to get this i though since i would most likely be able to hit over 50 and get great acceleration which is mostly what i want to do anyways. once again
edit... just noticed i have 1 bone HAHA I RULE

Don't worry dude it takes time if anything just upgrade the best you can like I'm doing and let the bore kit come in the future. I'm the same way straped for cash ,I just work with what I can and the scoots slowly getting there.

So it looks like I need to pick up a feeler gauger set which at harbor freight is only $3.99 and also I think I need to pick up some open ended sockets and possibly a nice neddle nose plier. BTW what is a sidecut, can someone post a picture so I know what I need to get.

marklorenzi: I just bought one of the Fleetwoods. They look like a clone of the Honda XRM's they sell overseas. It is in transit now and I should get it this week. I will try to post my experience here. Call me the guinea pig hahaha.
