why no sports exhaust and still be restricted?its legal if you dont declare it which people never do,i had a malaguti firefox f15 which was legal and had a £35 nos kit and 70cc big bore kit and it dont 72mph at its best,for your budget you can get a BRAND NEW road legal 1 for that price which is imported but not all that fast

ok i do want one deristriced and that but say if i crash with it thn they see that its?

I wanted to get a aprillia rs or rx (cant remember which one) when I was 16, my mum wouldnt let me get one because 'they are too dangerous' im glad i didnt get one because a year down the line I got a car and trust me its so much better to just wait one more year and get a car. I have to pass my friend who rides a moped everyday to college and its a real nightmare because he goes so damn slow, he holds up loads of traffic.

Great contradiction. LOL.

lol i know what your saying but i think i would rather get a moped now and get a car when im 17 espicially wiv the new laws coming in i mite have to wait till im 18 to drive
banned#6
oh yeah I forgot about the new law, well the good thing about mopeds is that they dont drink much petrol and are cheap to insure, and it gets you from a to b. Btw my friend has crashed his moped at least twice, im sure there has been more times when hes crashed but he is too embarrased to say.

Do not get a cheap Chinese one, they are rubbish, and to the guy who said he got 72mph, keep dreaming mate. 9/10 second hand bikes are derestricted so you will have to restrict it again but i wouldn't bother as no one would be able to tell if it is derestricted and insurance companies probably wont check, Log onto [url]www.scootershack.co.uk[/url] and go to the forum, there are a lot of scooter people on there and people sell them on there too

why keep dreaming?malaguti are 1 of the fastest 50ccs on the road u fool


You wouldn't of got 72mph out of it, simple. i know people who have tunes there bikes with hundreds of pounds worth off tuning equipment and still do not see 72mph so a 70 kit and a cheap nos kit(which i cant see making a different to your speed) will not of got you 72mph.

To OP, if i was you i would get a derestricted bike as sticking to 30mph is more dangerous to 45mph you would get when it is derestricted.

you can actually get a provisianal before you turn 16 but only can apply for it and they send it out when u 16 and you dont have to be 16 and 6months
banned#23
im sure its 16 and 6 months when I tried to apply last year, but here it says two months before you are 17

Mopeds and tractors
If you want to ride a moped you can take your theory test when you are 16, but again you must make sure you have a valid provisional licence.

If you are 16 and already have a provisional licence for an agricultural vehicle or a moped, this will give you provisional entitlement to drive a car when you are 17.

you want the website where it says?

your probably right, but isnt a provisional the same whether its for a car or moped? :?
banned#27
you will not get 50-60mph from a derestricted 50c and nos kit for 30 quid make a difference? please mate, when you know anything about tuning mopeds then come back to me but until then, please shut up as you sounds stupid thinking 50cc bikes can go that fast. O and no one would spend thousands of pounds on scooters you say, actually you are mistaken as people do spend thousand of pounds on scooters to tune them up.

Your malaguti most likely did 50mph top speed down a hill.

not true! I was reading the MCN at work yesterday, and soon you won't be able to argue with 50cc & 125cc Chinese and Japanese bikes because they are starting to take over the market, for example the CBR125.

kcnw9
and to the guy who said he got 72mph, keep dreaming mate.
Agreed. 50cc max 50 unless you derestrict it, which strains the engine slightly, I'm no expert, I just state what I'm told. Yeh you do get faster than 50, down hill with a tail wind. Remember, its not about speed, your suppose to only go a maximum of 50kph which is 31/32mph I believe.

400 is a very low budget, is this just for the scooter alone? If so eBay or a local deal and haggle hard on a second hand twist n go ped.

My friend has a Derbi SM50, brand new when purchased 56 plate. That set him back £2000, with leathers (gloves, jacket, shoes), and a helmet. On top of that was £350 third party fire & theft insurance, road tax £15, his CBT test £85 and his provisional £30 (I think). Lot of money for a 2-stroke which you have to take more care of than a 4-stroke engine.

When i said chinese bikes i meant bikes like these :http://moseid.net/fun-bikes.com/LF50-QT.jpg

The honda cbr125 is a excellent learner bike, no doubt about that

Oh sorry, I thought so wasn't sure. Yeh if it isn't a well known branded two-stroke you might as well not bother getting one since it won't last you 3months.

Get a geared bike, twist & go just sound poor.

it is a different person that is selling on ebay that does 50-60mph and its only a 50cc and why would i big up a DUMB SCOOTER when iv jus sold me gpz 500?FOOL


Didnt you say you had a malaguti firefox f15 that had a nos kit and 70cc kit tha did 72mph? and if you had a gp500 i would expect you to realise that you didnt get 72mph out of you little 50cc machine and instead you got alot less than what your speedo was telling you. such a numpty

Yeh thats bs, 72, a XR125 will only just touch 70mph, and Honda 125's aren't restricted. They are fast scooters, but NOT that fast.
banned#34
Exactly, i know people who have spent atleast a thousand on tuning parts for a 50/70cc scooters and they reach about 80 max, they didnt just buy a 70kit and cheap nos kit, they brought new crank, gears, 70kit, carb, variator, torque drive, clutch and loads more. 50cc speedos over read alot, my old gilera runner 50 would say i was doing 60 when i was doing 40 real speed clocked on a tomtom.

Yeh, for a 50cc (bore'd up to a 70cc) it must be race tuned and have racing components to be able to reach speeds of 70mph+ but thats giving it full scream I suppose.

I know someone who had an Aprilla RS125, race tuned, few race components, chains, carb, clutch, crank, re-mapped. You wouldn't say it could do 60 in second, but it could at 15,000 revs. But he drove carelessly, and staked it. Was left unconcious, minus 1 toe and his hand cut clean open with bones sticking out. A bit off topic, but suppose when you get a bike you ought to think about safety too, since its not even necessary to have a bike which can do 70+ when you can't go down motorways.

Heres two pictures of his bike, he hit the side of a car at 65mph over a filter crossing, the car pulled out in front and he went into the side of it.

If you do want something which does silly speeds which you don't need to be fair, think about the people who love you ;) I'm not against motorbikes at all since last month I was a stones throw away from buying an RS50 or GPR50.

People who think that 50's only do 50mph with a pipe are full of s*?! I have a malaguti firefox which is de-restricted with a PM Tuning Exhaust and it does 61 mph, fair enough my speedo reads that im doin 73 mph, but everyone knows 50cc speedos are out, and I know that a VW Passat speedo isnt!!




MY SPEEDO READ 72MPH and now i realise SPEEDOS on SCOOTERS are OUT so i was going less and NO I DIDNT REALISE I WAS DOING LESS BECAUSE IT WAS FAST

and grz 500s aint all that fast just quick accelaration and if you dont believe i had a gpz500s twincam then search for me on ebay and EVERYONE CANT ACCUSE ME OF LYING I DIDNT KNOW SPEEDOS WERE OUT i thought they had 2 be accurate

Fireblade, a real bike. Yeh waiting till your 21 to do your direct access? (is it called?)

Tbh, topic stealing again, but I plan to do my restricted access when im 18/19 depending on whether I go university, but the liklyness of restricting to 33bhp is low :whistling:

That crash looks nasty, i always liked RS125s but i know too many people that have had them and they needed to rebuilded them alot, at the moment i have a rd125 which isnt that bad, does 90 on the speedo but not sure how fast it actually goes. Im going to get a 400 soon, maybe a cbr or vfr:w00t:
