Well my friends, I have spent alot of time recently reading the forums, how-tos, and advice from all the skooter buffs and ive attained a wealth of knowledge and know-how. For that I am thankful. But I have some input to share also. I recently bought mh first skoot- A 2005 CPI MZ Moskito 50cc that has 5200 miles on it and good cosmetics. I have nevr had a scooter before fbut I used to race karts and am always fixing a car, so i dove in head first! I read all about the stock restrictors and decided to take action. When I bought it from the guy it went straight upto 43 or 44 mph, so I assume the variator is not restricted anymore, correct me if im wrong. I will post pics and the othet mods in next post. Thanks for reading looking forwatd to feedback.

44 isn't a bad speed from bone stock, really i don't see you getting a whole lot more out of it by spending hours and money unless you do a BBK and some tranny work. That's where the bang for your buck is, I've seen it said on here before "there is no replacement for displacement!" and I hold true to that as well. Scooter

Yes cape ive always agreed with tnat saying also. No replacent. I seen someone say recently that the MP Skoots wer junk. I have to disagree. It has most of the same parts as othr chinese skooters, including the engine. Im not saying it is the best or fastest but im just curious to see what I can do with it. I took the stock airbox apart and modified it into somewhat of a cold air intake with a high flow filter. X Some people were saying it would be hard to tune, that the stock box was best. It started up first kick (battery is shot I think for electric start) without any tuning! I fine tuned the ratio and idle for optomization but very easy. I noticed a peppier start from 0mph, so it definately improved bottom end. Also noticed quicker acceleration from 30 to 40 mph and top speed seemed to be up to 47 or so. The exhaust did not have a restrictor on the flange so I am pretty impressed with this pupy!

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.
