Hi! Brand new to the forum.
I've been riding an LX50 2V for some time now, it has the Malossi 78cc kit with the camshaft, a Turbo Kit GMax pipe w/ header wrap, upjetted to 82 main, Malossi Double Sponge air filter, adjustable Bitubo front & rear shocks. I've been enthusiastic about this scooter and I use it a lot. I prefer it to the car weather permitting.
However I've been having trouble with bogging from a stop. The engine idles fine, just when I twist the throttle to move off from having sat at a traffic light for a few moments it bogs so I have to feather it. Once it gets moving it has some good power I guess. Valves are set right & whatnot. Not the increase in power I expected but it is what it is. And the carb adjustment! Just can't seem to get it dialed in. So frustrating. It's been like this ever since I installed that Malossi kit. See kids this is what happens when you mess with stuff.
So I've been contemplating an engine swap to a 150. A 150 would have enough power for me without me having to mess with it so I could keep it stock and therefore have none of this carb trouble to have to sort out. I don't really want to get a new scooter, don't want the hassle of finding one, registering it, etc. I can swap the engine out pretty easily. What else would I need besides the engine and a carb and an ignition? I know I would also need a rear shock to go with it.
Thanks for any help with this. Regards
