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.
