Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

A lot newer than some of the others on this thread but I bought this the other week, Suzuki TS50. Bought one brand new in 1999 when I was 16, it was stolen after 3 months. Currently downgrading it from the 70cc kit someone has fitted in the past back to 50cc for the full moped experience,

Don't throw the kit away, you might be putting it back on after experiencing the restricted 50cc launch at a busy traffic island.

Very true...my TS50 was dog slow...so slow that I was going up steep hill near me it started to wobble..whilst I was being followed by plod..needless to say I got pulled over..the copper thought I was pissed!
After an all clear he said he wouldn't blame me for "tuning it up a bit...can't you get a big bore kit?" " The bloody thing is dangerous" (in a welsh accent) :-)
.
. Two days later it had a big bore kit.. :-)
