    Thanks for the intro and welcome to MBc. Quenton is one of the Whizzer gurus here. Bill Green and MotorbikeMike are also a good source for quality Whizzer info.
    Be very careful how much you modify the WC-1 motor. Too many mods will generate too much heat for the WC-1 motor to handle. Usually what happens is the valve seats separate from the cylinder. They are pressed in place unlike the new NE motors where the seats are cast into the cylinder during the manufacturing process. They don't come loose and the NE cylinders also have larger cooling fins. They handle modifications much better. The nice thing is that the NE cylinders bolt right on the WC-1 bottom end so it is an easy upgrade. I got my upgrade parts from Quenton and they came with a ton of valuable information. My 2000 Whizzer really moves even with my large butt on it. I am having so much fun with mine. I thought I would never get back on 2 wheels after my wreck but the Whizzer has made it easy for me to be comfortable on the road again on 2 wheels. I have gained a fair amount of Whizzer knowledge here from the men who know so if you can not find your answers with a search just ask away. We will do our best to help and steer you the right way.
    Enjoy your ride
    Jim
