     i'm taking back what i said..... you would win... not any more.. lighter roller weights/sliders in my xciting 500 have made a huge difference...0 to 100 in 4 seconds... cya..

    as a modder myself... gonna have say i find that hard to believe

    as far as i can see the xciting has 37hp and weighs 220kg dry... so realistically around 250kg...

    Beo is around 50kg lighter and the power is around 40hp (pre mods) and with some serious modification it is a bit below 6 sec to 100km...  i think your speedo might be out, or your counting Stick out tongue

     

    These guys here did a test on a stock machine... stock time is 10.4sec

    so you are telling me that changing the rollers took SIX seconds off your 0-100 time!!!!

    it also says the speedo is REALLY out it indicated 100km/h but was only doing 86km/h in real life!!!!!!

    here is the link

    hell it says that your scooter stock takes 4.5 seconds to get to 50km/h let alone 100...

     

    PS I am in perth... with my Beo 500 Stick out tongue ... waiting... 

    Piaggio 250 BV type R

    Re: Life to the T MAX!

    Was planning to head up the coast this morning. Had a flash to drop in to the motorcycle shop to buy a throttle lever and a CO2 nozzle in case of a puncture. Got 10 minutes up the freeway, Blackmax was handling really wierdly, then realised I had a flat rear. A big chunk of rubber about the size of a ten cent piece had been cut from the tyre. I managed to patch it up and partially inflate the tyre but it still had a slow leak so I hobbled back to Sydney stopping every 10 minutes for more air. Got down to Balmain Motorcycles (the best tyre shop in Syd) and replaced the tyre. Fitted while I waited. (4,000ks.) Ended up getting a Bridgestone Battlax. $250 plus $50 fitting. They're big tyres on the Tmax, still, bloody expensive puncture but I was glad I could get back home and didn't have to get the TMax transported back to town.

    Anyway every things ready to go for take 2, all except this dumb rain.

    Re: Life to the T MAX!

    No pics, too busy trying to work out the mechanics of the puncture repair operation with Semis flying meters away from me at Hwy speeds. There were two cuts into the centre of the tyre which I blocked with rubber plugs and glue. All a bit dodgey. I was glad that I wasn't miles away from service stations or I would've been in deep s**t. Need to get a better inflation system like a mini air compressor that clips onto the battery. Got to be better than the CO2 cylinders. Punctures can be a real problem if you're on two wheels.

    Re: Life to the T MAX!

     Thats like the one i was looking at.

    Finally got up the Coast on Friday. Had to cope with heavy showers then dry roads and back to showers. Eventually got onto a dry track only to end up PAYING my respects to the Northern NSW Constabulary. Bugger! Despite all that it was a nice ride and Blackmax went well.

    LOL poor Pete. Didn't you suggest that they check their obviously faulty gear as EVERYONE knows that scooters can't speed! Wink

    I have to laugh when I find myself getting frustrated when yet another cop with a radar gun lowers it as I approach on my scooter. One day I'm going to fang it right infront of them just to show I can speed with the best of them! Devil

    Re: Life to the T MAX!

    Which reminds me...my very blonde and zany sister was stopped for speeding in her VW Bug (yes complete with daisy on the dashboard!) last week in Auckland. When he had done with the formalities - she asked him if he was married. Somewhat startled he said that yes he most definitely was! "Good" she said....."so let me give you these magazines - there are some great articles about marriage and relationships and avoiding the divorce traps in them. I am sure you will enjoy them and get a lot out of them."

     With that she reached over and handed him a couple of Watchtowers --yes she is a Jehovahs Witness!

    He was flabbergasted and took them without a murmur - So on her way she went satisfied that despite getting a speeding ticket she could clock up some Witnessing time to account for to her brothers and sisters at Church....which is where she was heading at the time.

    Needless to say they thought it very funny but also pointed out to her gently that she was actually breaking the law! haha!

    I do like her style though! Smile
