What effect will installing performance parts on my Chinese scooter have?

What are the basic performance parts I need to get to modify my 150cc Chinese scooter? If I put the performance parts on my scooter will it over heat. Can I ride it a long distance without blowing the motor?

you should have an A10 cam get A11 or A12. A13 & A14 camshafts are for serious builds, 180-200cc.

re-jet the carb if carb able to be disassembled. If not buy a new one. 1-2mm bigger

you will run very lean if you don't re-jet.
cdi only, dc or ac.

there's not much to worry about with an ECU/ECI

performance exaust or modify the oem.

spark gap if you're dc ran, especially.
As the book says', example, .6-.8" set to .65-.7.

my 50cc scoot likes .026-.027. Manual reads .025-.032 (.6-.8" after the cam I needed .028-.03
when I put the A9 in replace of the A8. had to give more gas idle jet and main jet, more flow intake and exhaust, reset spark gap, reset valve lash, and finally tune the transmission.

Performance parts are mostly designed to increase speed, so unless you are doing scooter racing. Regular parts should do what you need.

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.
