But we werent talking about a 50c scooter...was about the Vulcan, and not so much to get a higher top speed, but to be able to cruise on the hiway, at say 75, at a lower RPM, thus using less fuel....
And aerodynamically, 75 on a Vulcan is more than possible....physics included, lol....and who cares if ya wont argue, Im here to post facts...Im correct in theory and practice. And have proven it to a degree when I was building drag cars, and fully with racebikes. So, who cares what you think ???
'65 Chevy van, flat front, 6 cyl 230cu in, 130mph in 1/2 mile...that was in 1975 with a modified rear, exhaust and head....scary sheit doin it too !!!! It used to top out at 90, and I was able to lift (bouncing) the front wheel off the ground in first.
Damn brother...ya need to stop being such a pessimist....lol...."positive waves".....aummmm
Oh yeah...I had a Yammy 50cc scooter...a Zuma I think...topped out at 29mph for legal/license reasons...I modded it to go 45, by regearing, exhaust, and head (intake/exhaust port shaving), carb modifications. Thats 1/3 faster. And that was only a few yrs back, so it aint senility talking...
