Dude, no idea on mods, esp in mumbai, but I've seen a Kiney do 70 kmph uphill, with a pillion rider! Does wheelies too...

Hey scooterrz, how about an intro, in the introductions section?

My friend used to have a Kinetic, and it had a custom made chamber. It does increase the power, but gets really loud at time. I also think u can get/make a muffler too, cuz i've seen that on a Dio. But there is no point really in doing all that, its not all that worth it.

well i know that you can rebore the engine and put in a suzuki shogun piston and have an exhaust made for it. this reduces milleage, engine life and increases performance BIG time.. i have seen them pull wheelies and keep up with motorbikes quite easily.

Are you the same person who put this query in the latest Overdrive magazine?

If not, check their answer out.

I think you have put this same question forward on very other forum in India, as well as the magazines. I'm sure you must have got some answers by now.

dude since you have posted all over you must have got enough of suggestions already but as suggested previously instead of spending money on modifications for your SCOOTER why dont you buy a bike instead.you can think about a yamaha rx100 or if your budget permits a pulsar.i would suggest you buy a good rx 100 and then modify it. alot can be done to that bike.
