It's quite amazing what a lot of work you did tuning and upgrading your S50, by why didn't you simply buy a S125?

well seems you have done all the S50 upgrades!!! and the different looks and what have you... Bad ass bike thats for sure! I have the same year and color so thanks for all the detailed info and work youve blessed the site with (this should be a sticky for the S50 crowd)

Ill ask you since you live in South Florida as do I (305) would the variator kit be enough if all i want is a bit of juice Im not trying to go faster just wanna have some acceleration and be able to zip over the bridges no problem.

second, for fuel efficiency what are you ideas on that? mine is pretty stock as of now Ive gone with the crash bars and what not but wanted black instead of chrome through out the bike as SoFL and chrome seem to be a bit of a problem esp since I live on the water.

Those white walls are tight!!!! I wanted to get the rims in the same color of blue or blacked out... but hadnt seen the white walls on a S50 till yours!

looks good!
Thank you, and I think the Variator will get you over the bridges without any problem...there's quite a bit of lower cost tuning options you can do to these, don't let anyone tell you , you have to get a 150.

a 125 or 150 requires a motorcycle license, a tag/registration, and an insurance policy. I need none of those with how it sits right now.

I got a few due to different weather scenarios. I prefer the look of no windscreen, for ideal acceleration and top speed the small vespa windshield is the best, the GIVI shield I have which Is a mid level is better for the cooler weather.

Ive got this bad boy taken completely apart for some aesthetic upgrades. I'm getting it Vinyl Wrapped. It should look completely different here in the next couple weeks.Heres the most recent photo of it, when it was last ridden just a couple days ago.

Nothing wrong with the way it looks now IMHO, but I'm looking forward to seeing the finished makeover.

also experimented with the intake setup. I got a malossi filter with an integrated plastic housing with a size similar to the rubber intake hose. It works....same results pretty much as the stock box and malossi filter, but has a cooler look and more room. Replaced the cylinder breather port with a K&N filter. My hosing was cracking and I needed an adapter anyways, so I took a malossi fuel filter and hollowed it out. Also not pictured, but I painted the float cap Wrinkle Black. looks badass.
