Here is a ride on my Honda Dio, was 49cc, now 78cc with a 28mm carb, expansion chamber, big intake manifold, later model Dio wheels, shocks, brakes. Nothing special in terms of the riding, just cruising around some streets in Japan.
Wind noise affected the sound quality so I have muted a lot of it.
Goes from 0 to 70kph in a few seconds then winds up to 90kph! Stops well with the front disc and race pads though.
Lots of fun to cruise around on!

Rebuild a Vespa P125 Motor Part 1: Engine Tear-Down
**SEE TABLE OF CONTENTS BELOW**
As this is a long and intense video, feel free to skip ahead to a specific
section of the video. Also be aware there is a PART 2 of this process.
Steve walks us through the process of rebuilding a P125 motor. This will be
the same or very similar on most vintage large frame Vespas with some minor
exceptions. In addition to inspecting all aspects of the motor during tear
down, Steve points out all the wear items that should usually be replaced
during a rebuild. We also went ahead and installed a Malossi cylinder kit
and upgear kit while we were at it.

Dr Pulley Sliding Roller vs Round Roller in variator
In the video,you'll see the low gear shift of Dr.Pylley's SR is much lower
than round roller and the high gear shift of Dr.Pulley's SR is also higher
than round roller.
So SR will provide powerful take-off and higher top end.

120cc variator weight tuning
Due to the bigger motor and changing power band , The variator weights have
to be changed either lighter or heavier to make the DIO take off quickly,
stay in low gear till the revs come up, THEN transition to top gear , all
in one smooth acceleration curve. YOur big main clutch spring tension, belt
condition and Variator total weights in front variator. After this video
was shot, I took out the 8 grams, and put in 8,10,8,10,8,10 weights for a
total of 54 grams. The theory is that heavier weights will allow for slower
take off and faster top speed.
LIghter weights will have a fast take off but shorter power curve,
resulting in peak rpm reached at a lower top speed. The trick is to find
the exact medium between the two extremes, then you can tweak it one way or
another. Clutch spring wear and belt stretching will throw the whole
equation off, so you have to be aware of all the variables and use as close
to new components to get this job right.
VESPA Customshow Ried 2014
1000 Jahre sind ein Tag! Selbst am nächsten Morgen, auf der Rückfahrt
von Ried im Innkreis, ist das musikalische Meisterwerk von Udo Jürgens
noch immer standhaft in unsere Erinnerung eingebrannt. Nackte Oberkörper,
betrunkene, sich in den Armen liegende, singende Männer, alles Indizien
für eine gelungene Customshow 2014...
