I have one and had a 72cc bore kit done for a couple hundred dollars and I do about 50 to 60 on straight aways and it also added a lot of torque to the take off

You got the wrong model

From picture I would says you purchased the cheapest Peace Sports moderl # 805 ..You should have bought the 804 V.I.O. or 840 .. Go to and read info. The 804 will not slow down as much on hills , has a stonger/stouter 125c frame & better shocks. Everyone sells/buys the wrong model because it is cheaper .. Can go 45 W/O redling on my 804 model and be glad to hepl you buy new one to your door for under $700 Peace Sports model 804 & available in KY BLUE/WHITE ...

If your scooter it a 2 stroke, then you will need to locate the CDI box. There will be a Blue or a Green wire that loops back into the CDI. That is the governor. You can cut that wire and you will get about 5 more mph.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.
