Hi,
You're not telling me too much I don't already know. In Maine mopeds do
need insurance, and inspection, and a license (although a car/motorcycle
license is sufficient). Helmets are optional here for mopeds and
motocycles. This not the case in other states?
Good point about the speedometer. I did my test by having a friend follow
me around for a while the other day as I assumed his car's speedometer
would be more accurate.

50 C C's or less to be legally a moped.There are speed parts
available,but when exceeding the State set max speeds and/or 50 CC cyl
displacement,you are now in the motorcycle class and need to abide by
motorcycle laws.Wear a helmet,have an inspection, licence,and
insurance,etc.Bottom line,to go faster legally,get a motorcycle to start
with.Sorry,just the facts.   Tom K

Subject: High Performance Exhausts - Honda Elite
Hello All,
I'd like to make my scooter just a bit faster. Anyone have any
experience with these (or mopeds in general) and high performace exhausts.
Are these legal in the US? I've been told a 5-10 mph increase is
expected (this seems a little high to me). Any particular exhausts that
worked well for you?
My scooter is a 2001 Honda Elite, and on a flat surface accelerates to
27-28 mph very rapidly, then slowly climbs to about 35-37 mph where it
tops out.
