chris' scoot hoard

after watching the eastcapeescape vid I had to have a piece of that action. I saw this dio for cheap enough and grabbed it. Initially I thought I'd keep it stock and ride it but we all know that is a lie.

I've replaced the rollers and put some of aliexpress finest parts in

I'm trying to order a exhaust for it and have found heaps of sweet parts on yahoo japan but need some more $$ before I do anything else 

yea id wait and just put money aside and then do heaps of cool shit at ones. The best barrel kits for these from all my research are the polini Corsa, which are about $300 for the barrel and piston kit etc. because of the mission of tuning these things your best to save up and do cylinder / carb& manifold  / exhaust all at ones, then tune your gearing to get it spot on.

I'm trying to keep it from snowballing lol. The plan is to do the exhaust and keep it 50 for now and do some cosmetic stuff

@Raizer/nzscooter/grassman send up some goodies for me. It looks like someone has been there before, That might explain the high rev miss/"limiter"

replaced the clutch springs and the clutch now slips so I'll get a replacement at some point. I've got a replacement carb on the way along with some fork seals

Nothing like a nice night in...

I've sorted the clutch as much as I can for now. @Raizer said to try give it a sand & de-grease. It actually grips now which is good.

I started swapping the carbs over so I can actually rejet it. Turns out my return spring is too big and a pen spring is too small so I'll try hunt a spring down tomorrow

I gave the airbox a bit of a tickle with the holesaw too, you can see the stock hose inlet thing on the top

For the price of a slap of piss and some winieblues I acquired another dio. Its been sitting for a while but fired up nicely after giving the carb a clean. installed a little bit of low and made some clouds. I thought the brakes on the black dio were ok but compared to the drums they are amazing. I've got some aliexpress stuff coming to hopefully sort that

And then there were 2 and a half
