Thanks for the video -- nicely summarized. 

I was surprised to see that your front disk caliper is only single piston.

I was under the impression that "most" 150cc bikes were dual piston?

Thanks Fifty and Foto.

Yeah, I have seen dual piston brakes on other videos, but you know Chinese scoots try to get away with a little as possible.

Hey Piston,

I can't remember from your scooter pic if you had changed your shocks or not.

Could anyone recommend an air shock that fits?

I'm pretty sure he changed back shocks, I remember he has special bottom mounting brackets, I'm sure he will be around.

These by Forsa Nitrogen charged purchased from Partsforscooters.

There much stiffer and makes for a much nicer ride above 45mph.

I also drained the water they call fork oil and running a 15W Belray fork oil. not as much to stiffen them up but to Slow them down, much nicer now.

Thanks Piston.

Is the bracket homemade?

Next year I will be changing to disc brake in the back, that looks cold!

No, NCY and another I forget offers them

That lower diameter of the shock interfered with the case so either butcher it or use the brackets,

The Shocks with the piggy back reservoirs have a smaller diameter but they are more expensive, check the diameter of whats offered.
