Installed the Remus Dual Exhaust today, which I went specifically for because I love the look. Took wifey for a ride, no issues, I know that's a concern for some. I'm not a small guy either, I'm about 240, she's about 135. So good test. Just have to be careful of potholes, but even so, I don't like that type of weight on my Scoot.

Next Zelioni rear shocks and racingbros Bazooka V4 upfront. I think I need more air in the front, as it seems a bit soft. I'm about to go for a ride in a few, to put her through her paces. Went with my girl earlier, but she can't keep up with her Sprint 50.

While you are tuning handling, look at Brembo or Frando brake callipers too. But they are a hassle to install because of bleeding ABS brakes.

Definitely doing Brembos as well, big fan of them. Mechanic will definitely install.

Still have the Malossi Racing and cylinder kit and forcemaster. Still researching variator though. Between Polini and Jcosta, quicker acceleration is my goal. Researching a few other mods, hoping I can get everything done I want.

Thank you, definitely love them both. Wish the exhaust was a little more aggressive, but it does sound much better.

Swapped out variator today, still have to do clutch spring. Went with Polini 9 with their suggested weights (9.1). Did some runs before and after.

Before 1st shot after install 2nd shot. Also, gas was almost empty first shot, second I added a gallon of gas and also had a few lbs of tools in my pet carrier lol.

Racing kit installed. Did some quick runs this morning. Definitely a nice boost in performance, especially the top end. Jumped on the highway and hit 65 (GPS) 70 (vespa speedo) rather easily, much better than before.
