I have a 2001 Yamaha vino 50cc. I am looking at getting more speed out of it. I ran across an artcle on motorcycle .com that talks about 2 modifications and your vino will go from 29 mph to 45 mph. Can anyone help me out and tell me which washer to remove, I cannot seem to find the right one. Here are the 2 modifications the article states:
First, remove the restrictive choke pipe from the exhaust header. If you remove the header and exhaust assembly from the engine you should be able to see it tack-welded inside the tube. Reasonable applications of force should remove the piece from the assembly. Our consultant recommends a large screwdriver to accomplish the task. Second, you can increase the top speed by removing a washer from the primary drive clutch assembly. This can be accomplished by removing the kick-starter and the plastic transmission guard. After that, you will be able to remove the snap ring on the kick-starter shaft and the bolts that hold the clutch cover in place. Be advised, you may want to drain the transmission oil first. Finally finish the disassembly by removing the clutch assembly from the shaft. You'll see a washer that limits the pulley's lateral range of motion. Remove this washer and then bolt everything back together.
