...ok ok...I admit it, weak nerves...I figured iīd wing this on my moped, and go for a tootle down the lane to see what difference it made...well fuck me!!! I figured Iīd get over the shock and get used to the acceleration, but NO...not for me....not in this weather anyway.....and as Iīm looking at getting a bigger bike next spring...thought I would offer it here before going ebaytastic....the whole setup cost me over 400 quid, it has done maybe 50-60 miles, so more or less brand new...any offers?

my "Moped" is a 1993 AF1 sport pro with a rotax 123 engine..but was assured from the shop that it would fit both 122 and 123...appantly you just need the right gaskets?

Yeah, i found that out the hard way, after some idiot fitted it to his bike days before i bought it.

the box said it was for a rotax type 122, but the bloke in the shop said it fitted on mine no probs...as indeed it was fitted by him, and then two days late un-fitted by him......anyway, it is for a rotax 122...checked and clarrified.

They dont make them for 122 engines.

look, Iīm no expert....I went to a shop, I said "do you do upgrading for my bike? itīs a 125 AF1 Sport Pro, from 1993" He said, we got this polini kit here...itīs foe rotax 122 and 123....it cost 675 euro to fit it...ītīll be ready this afternoon, if you want it that it!", I said, ok, Iīll check the bank...." later that morning....Iwent back, and said..."about this polini kit.....fit it." he said "OK"
I went back three hours later, he said"itīs done, but be carefull not to rev too much, Itīs a nes cylinder and piston, itīll need running in" i said "ok" he said "thatīll be 675 Euros please" and then he said "thanks" I drove off....I was a bit warey at first, cos it accelerates like hell...just have to breath on the grip and it goes!! so i tried it for a couple of day, didīt like it....put bluntly i Shit myself!!! so I went back and had the old cylinder replaced...and now I have this one to sell!!!! ītīs not hard......does anyone want it or not??? failing that itīs going on ebay.

Its hardly a huge leap in power though is it, I cant see why you would be craving more power and then when you get an increase suddenly shitting yourself.

It seems a lot of money to spend to just do that.

to be honest I think you are talking shit and something dodgey is going on.

Although I suppose you could be genuine and I holp my hands up and apologise if you are.

Does seem odd, buying a bigger bike but being scared of a bigbore 125.

Bones

not sure if you have one fitted, or if indeed you are contemplateing it, but the "ACCELERATION" is a rather large step up...granted the top end doesnīt make that much difference(about 10-15 mph), but getting there is the scarey bit on a bike that weighs a little over 130 kg...hense the "Bigger" bike a 600 weighs at least 210 kgs...and I appreciate the comment about talking shit, but with all due respect farmer....Wind your neck in!!!!

Bones

just in case any of you where wondering if Iīm talking shite....and you can understand german/ use a translator proggy...try this link....as I said this cylinder fits both 123 and 122....the price is just for the cylinder and not including any gaskets or piston etc....

A 600's got over 100bhp & weighs around 180kg dry. You've gained about 5bhp, so about 38bhp and weighs 119kg dry.

Your going to scare yourself alot more on a 600.

was planning on having it restricted for a year, wanted to get used to the weight before my restriction was up...and the printout I have from the shop...needed for the german tuv...says 42ps at the back wheel...so in theory, iīm riding illegal anyway!!

Perhaps you should spend a little more time on the 125, you don't sound like someone who is ready for a bigger bike. If you're really ready for a bigger bike then neither weight or power should be a problem.

Bones

Thatīs a fair comment oli, and I will give it some genuin thought, however, it doesn't change the fact that the kit is still for sale....looking around, it sells for 289 quid new in UK...I paid more for it here, ebay selling for about 22 quid....so lets start with 190 quid...I kid you not, this kit has driven a max of 60 miles. this is serious, no piss taking and no rip offs...I havenīt got a clue what these go for in "Real life", so somebody, make a genuin offer and stop running me down.

you say its done 60miles but yet you say it adds 10 - 15mph on the top end
how do you know that if youve been running it in?

Bones
11-08-2005, 05:53 PM
look, i get the message...you lot donīt want it....fine, just tell me instead of acting like a bunch of kids for fucks sake....a bloke makes a genuin offer and gets ripped to bits....as a matter of interest, did I say that i hadnīt been running it in? hereīs a little tip, go to someone who knows about what this kit does (in my case a bloke behind a counter) and say...What exactly does this thing give you....in this case he said quicker accelleration and about 15 - 25 kph (thatīs about 10 - 15 mph) top end.

priller

hereīs a little tip, go to someone who knows about what this kit does

In most cases, blow up.

Pelnty of people here have tried them, most have blow up.

Bones

so, iīm probably better off without it anyway......although, looking through some of the bikes in here, seem allot of people have one fitted. iīt canīt be that bad can it?

all depends if its been set up correctly
