Hi, I asked a few friends. And the thing that slows me down is
that they put a "plug" in the.. hmm.. english mopedterms again..
the hole where the engine sucks in fuel to the cylinder. I
think. "Insuget" in swedish :) But according to my friends that
plug is not very hard to get rid of, just drill it out or
something. And that 4speed 18,5mph, yes It sure feels very silly
to run through 4 gears just for reaching 18,5.. duh, thats why im
going to speed it up a little.. Im thinking of taking away that
plug, and some other things. After that it will go about
37-38mph, double speed. Its kind of illegal but what the heck :)
It is 50cc, if its over 50cc its not called moped in sweden.
Then its "light motorbike" and you have to get a special drivers
licence and stuff, and be at the age of 16. But since they
slowed it down to 18,5 mph its not using all that 50cc to the
max, which is kind of stupid..

And about that throttle limiter, its half-correct, its not limiting how far I can turn the gas handle, but when Im at full gas, that plug makes sure there is not as much fuel getting into the engine as it would be if you had that Monza in the US (or whatever) and maxed it.. So it is a throttle limiter on it, but not where you thought it was.

Anyways. thanks for your opinions!
