    Thought i post about a ride i went on today. it's been a long while since i've gone on a good long ride on my whizzer sportsman,i thought today's the day! i live in a pretty hilly area with lots of winding road and beautiful scenery. i started in whittier went all the way thru hacienda to fullerton rd. then made the return trip back home. it was a total of 18 miles of fun time. i'm posting some pics of the ride.

    Looks like you had great fun Mason_Man so how does your Whizzer do climbing all those hills ? Are you having to pedal your tail off ? I have a 99 Whizzer that runs great but doesn't like pulling my 225 pounds up hills . I live in the foothills (Tujunga) and it's very hilly here so Im always open to ideas how I can make my ride a good hill climber .

    Hi ratman,it was great! i did do some pedaling, i'm tipping the scale that about 190. is your 99 still stock WC-1 or do you have the NE cylinder? have you done any mods? my 24" Whizzer does way better than my 26" whizzer. the 26" is super slow until about 15 mph and then shes like a bat out ****. i've moved the trigger plate forward 7/16th,went from 14 degree to 28 degree btc. the hp cam and mushroom lifters also help alot.just had the flywheel shaved and balanced that also made a big difference. the 24" is slip clutch and the 26" is a/c.

    My 99 Whizzer has the stock WC-1 engine , 26" tires , black with 190 original miles . I've had no issues with it and starts up first try every time ! I know about all the upgrades my engine is going to need to keep it dependable in the long run but not ready to tear into it yet . If I can pick up alittle more torque or pulling power on the hills with out having to do major surgery or brake the bank , that would solve me from having to pedal my brains out !:sweatdrop: When Im ready to soup it up my first call will be Quenton so he can work his magic .:bowdown: Thanks .:cool:

    You can clean up the intake port,exhuaust port.move up the timing one tooth. remove intake restricter.remove original muffler and replace with hi flow muffler.use a #78 main jet.set lifters at .007" intake and .oo9" exhuast.all this will help your WC-1 breathe better and improve your performance.but because whizzers run hot the valve seats will lift.i'm using WC-1 and NE cylinders with thermal barriers and dry film lubricant coating,dropping my temps down to around 300 degrees.i still pinned the valve seats.the 26" whizzer will not do as good as the 24" on hills i know your area.even with the ne upgrade you will probably still have to do some pedaling.Quenton is definitely a great source for parts or complete work.the other option is to go with the overhead valve kit.this will definitely give you all the power you will need.i'll post a pic of Fred with one of his ohv kits on a vintage whizzer 700 case.

    Hi Ratman,

    When using the OHV kit the frame must be modified. Last DYNO tests had the modified NE motor within 1 MPH of the OHV motor. The OHV motor however produces a lot more bottom end torque, which is better for pulling hills at lower speeds.

    Have fun,

    Hey Quenton, the parts got here yesterday. WOW thanks for taking time to make these parts. the wc-1 copper head gaskets, intake and exhuast spacers are all very nice. Ray
