I saw the brochure online and it said 25 MPH max speed - that was a bit disappointing. But I found this site and it says you can do different levels of modifications to increase the speed.
I don't want to do anything to increase it to the level of insanity (I would love to see someone on one of those!!!) - but I would like to do the mod that Quenton Guenther mentioned where you make the opening on the restrictor plate in the carb to give it a little more top end. Right now I can slooooowly get it up 35 MPH - but I would love for 40 or 45 to be the max since most of the roads I will drive on will be 40 max.
Since I don't know much about these machines - anyone happen to have a pic or two showing the carb and restrictor plate assembly so I know what to disassemble and modify?

I'll try to help you. There are 2 10mm nuts that hold the carb on. remove these and slide the carb off the studs. It should be able to hang on the throttle cable out of the way. Next you should see a thin gasket. Behide this should be the restrictor plate. It is a hard material and is not the same color as the gasket. Mine are all a lighter shade of brown. Almost tan in color. Slide this off the studs. Now make the opening in this plate match the opening in the intake on the cylinder. This will help a lot. Reassemble in the same order you removed the plate and gaskets. Tighten the nuts and enjoy. I hope this helps.
Jim, thank you so much - that does help a lot! Have a great Saturday.
