Thread: Juicing up the ride

  1. #1

    Juicing up the ride

    Slowly making my modifications to the scoot with more to come! Picked up the exhaust off Ebay and the ram mount from amazon. I don't care what has been said about using an aftermarket exhaust I can tell you first hand that the test drive with the Giannelli was amazing because the stock exhaust has almost a 90 degree elbow on it. Theirs definitely a difference. Click image for larger version.

    About the exhaust, do detect both a performance difference as well as an audible difference? TIA!

    The horizontal position of the Ram mount - I think - opens under weight. It's the "fall out" position vs. vertical. Right? Having dropped and ruined 2 iPhones I have some expertise in this.
    There's nothing like looking when you're trying to find something.

    Lee the performance is different. I'm not sure about the audible because I haven't tried to remove the baffle yet but with the baffle in the decibels is about the same.

    TwoPort my ram mount is new so the spring is pretty tight but I didn't feel comfortable with it in the vertical position and that's why I keep it in the horizontal.

    I use a RAM mount too, but I also have a little "bungee" cord on the iPhone, just in case!Click image for larger version.

    A little update for everyone reading this on the exhaust. Took out the baffle today and took it for a 30 minute ride and boy was the sound pure joy to my ears. It actually sounds somewhat like the sport bikes I've been used to riding in the past but not overly obnoxious because of the catalytic converter. It has enough sound to let people know your around but not irritating when your riding at highway speeds. Best $199.00 investment yet. OBTW the Giannelli website says 4 HP and I believe it because it has a lot more throttle response now. It is highly recommended to wake your scoot up!

    I have never lost a phone off any bikes but on my Ural ram mount I now use the elastic "holder" thing pictured below. I can't imagine a phone coming loose with the ram and that thing. Costs less than 4 bucks.

    That is pretty cheap insurance for phones that run upwards of $600 dollars now a days!
