A buddy does custom mod work on high dollar boats, and motorcoaches. Recently, he tried his hand at cleaning up my scooter. Gabe :patriot:

I'm about to find out.....I just installed an aftermarket intake/airfilter & exhaust. After lunch, we're going to program the fuel controller. www.dobeckperformance.com and see what my gps says.

The stock exhaust weighs 12lbs, the airbox and filter 2lbs, the 2/3 of the rear fender that was chopped 1lb or so. The new exhaust weighs 1-1/2 lbs and the intake hose/airfilter/crankcase filter about 1lb. So, my scoot's at least 11 lbs lighter. :patriot:

How fast is it. Mine would go 47. But now not sure. I would however like to find an aftermarket exhaust for it. Mine was stock till the muffler broke off. How much Better are those 4 GM sliders than stock weights

i need to do that to my scoot. mostly around the waist. oh wait, that's me. :doh:

getting the weight down is a good thing for any motorized transport. especially those with small engines.

I've got an '09 Z155 and my C3 has more room. A bigger engine would be sweet! You'd need a bigger fuel tank, and a way to stop it....

Post Re: C3 "Bobber"
I finally had time to have my airbox removed and a K&N high Performance airfilter installed.I often have my Dealer's excellent mechanic do things like this, as I've still got 18 months left on my extended warrenty....It keeps them in the loop... with all of the mods I've been doing! First thing I noticed is how sweet it sounds! There's much more power from takeoff to top speed.... Lost some top speed however. I kind of expected that, as we're guessing on what length of intake tube, will make best power, at what rpm. Midrange is stout, (Hills? What Hills?! :D ) but the power runs out at around 42 mph @ 7200 rpms. Next thing is to go to a local shop that has an exhaust analyzer, and dial in the fuel/air mixture with the fuel controller. Then, add length to the intake a half inch at a time, until top end speed maxes out. Where's a friend with access to a Dyno when you need one!? :) I'm about to need to replace the 120/90-10 rear tire, that's nearly as bald as I am! I think there's enough grunt to install a 130/90-10 tire in place of it, which is good for 2-3 more mph. I'll let you know how it progresses. Looks like I'm finally, about to be able to just ride it, and not be experimenting with it all of the time! lol! Gabe :patriot:
