    You can sway a thousand men by appealing to their prejudices quicker than you can convince one man by logic.

    hahahahahahahahaha, posting numbers like that nobody is going to believe you encluding me. i know what a sonic is, it has the same motor as a jog but some come watercooled. jogs wont even go that fast with just the mods you are talking about and jogs are way lighter than sonics.

    Does the variator make that much of a difference?

    Just a little sarcasm with the top speed claims.
    Oh, and I got 67 on the way to my office today!

    Hi Jon,

    This seems to be a great news for me because it's being hard to buy a new crankshaft to my Aprilia Rally. But somebody told me that Yamaha Jog crankshaft is the same as the Aprilia Rally, what is in accordance with your post.
    Is that correct?
    Can I install the Jog cranckshaft in a Rally?

    Please, answer me a 'Yes' and it's gonna be my birthday gift.

    Thanks

    i would think that they are the same. if you go with a polini, malossi or anything other name brand crank they should have the info for you.

    In north america, Yamaha sell the BWS or Zuma. The Yamaha BWS50 (50cc) is sold in other countries with the option to get it in 100cc version. The frame of the bikes look identical (they are) the only difference is the 100cc engine vs the 50cc engine. Does anyone know how difficult it would be to turn a BWS 50cc to a BWS 100cc using all stock Yamaha parts?

    They are only sold in Mexico and I live in Canada. I want the stock parts not for performance but for reliability.
