First impressions of stage 1. Night and day difference. If you dont have it yet get it it wakes the little predator up. Proof. Acceleration is insane it will dump you off even quicker now, I let up didnt want to go over 50 in a long sleeve shirt (plus i dont have a helmet anymore I will be getting one). This is plenty of fun for most. Made me smile and I'm 35 hah

Whew, that's fast!
Even just a header added to my Briggs significantly improves acceleration, and that's with the stock air filter! It's really interesting how that little bit of extra flow can affect power.

No kidding when I saw it I laughed I couldnt believe it. But i went on the same journey as before.

Still 100% governed. This spring i am planning on removing all of it and getting a real carb and throttle assembly. Milling head thinner head gasket, and internals.

That's great for a governed engine. And I agree that anything over 50 is scary on a minibike.

For a cheaper camera mount it is a decent aluminum mount. the swivel spring could stand to be slightly tighter. But whatever.
Still waiting on phone mount.

For the carb, I'd look on amazon or ebay for a chinese clone of a Mikuni. They're just as good, but they're less than $20. Though I'd try the governor removal first, you'll be surprised what that can do.

If you have the cash get the genuine Mikuni. Tuning and jet changes are so much easier.

I do but dont want to spend much on this thing. although I dont want issues and then rebuy later down the road.

I will probably get real mikuni in the coming week or so.

The chinese ones are not that bad. The mikuni ones are just way better.

I dont know and am not going to waste money on them I read people swapping razor sx500 forks on the 200u so this is probably going to be the route I go and get benefit of front brake. Not the greatest but it is still fun.
