    Hi guys, my name is Sydney.

    So I bought a 150cc big boy scooter and rode it for 3 months, not 1 problem except it was 2 slow. So yesterday I bought a performance exhaust and a bigger carburetor. Had it Installed today but I think there is a problem..... No increase in power or speed... In fact it feels slower. Also, at one stage it was stuttering down the road, sounded like it was 'missing' then backfired, idled erratically and then eventually rode OK again.
    Am I correct in thinking that it is a carb/jets adjustment issue?

    Thanks for reading,
    Syd.

    Hi and welcome to the TB Forum. Also have a scoot (Yammie Bug Eye) - Little chap but does the business too.

    Not a mechanical carb person but I am sure they will be along shortly...
    All my posts are my opinion and not those of TB or TB Marshals or any other sane human

    Hi and welcome! Where in Gauteng are you? just a suggestion, and question, did you do any research into your mods, or just bung them on? PM AZ, he is a whiz, or PM Ironman,also a whiz, and as far as I know, he is here on the Woesrand.
    Properly done, you can get some serious poke out of those little scoots!
