Post Thanks guys........
Just wanted to thank you guys for the great forum here......

Bought a Zuma 50 pit bike while back here and really loved it except being 270 lbs 6 ft.. top speed left a lot to be desired(32-35mph). ...did the headlight mod and all the maintenance, two new tires, switched the mirrors ,12v plug mod, new front pads,new plug repaired oil sensor leak etc etc

So my search for a 125 led me to a almost perfect 2009 125 that doesn't have a scratch on it...$1500...and I love it
great acceleration up hills around here and a top speed of about 55 mph and im running knobby tires w/ my big wide body.....the thing I like more than the additional speed is the acceleration from a stop and it just flat out eats up the hills

I think I might hv to get a windshield cause at full speed the bugs here in KY are really bad at night and I love to ride at night...its seems folks like the OEM windshield but will it slow me down or will I gain a little speed

Like I said Im 270 lbs 6 ft and muscular wide....to me it seems the windshield might actually help air flow around me at top speed???

Right now I feel like my body is catching a lot of wind

any ideas or experience

Like I said ...thks guys.....

Oh and im keeping the 50 too....my wife rode w/ me for the first time last night and really loved it

love these yammies.....

all I've ever read was the wind screen slows you down

but if its for bug protection then thats the decision you need to make


you could throw on a big bore, and windscreen
then if you did loose any speed it wouldn't really matter that much
