Yep sorted out the kick stand issue, the exhaust issue and the rear tire issues
Now then
Brakes
They wear out much to fast (as you all surly know ) So options ?????
What pads are you running and how are they holding up for you
I'm running DX Elixer's (the stock pads they come with ) They stop good and wear fast
Almost tempted to say to hell with a few extra pounds and put some small motorcycle sized calipers and rotors on the thing
Wouldn't it be nice if these dam Motopeds came stock with all the goodies they really need
Dam it


The difference between (That middle eastern religion, you know the one) and a vampire ? At some point you can expect the vampire will become less bloodthirsty

mike,

what diameter brake rotors are you running??
maybe try larger diameter rotors..
larger diameter brake rotors will provide more braking leverage so this could reduce pad wear a bit..
also, maybe stop by your local bicycle shop and inquire about tandem bicycle brake options since they are usually more heavy duty..

here was a source for 10" brake rotors: (stock motoped rotors are currently 9"/203mm)
(Big Disc Brake Rotor 255mm)

and some reviews from users:
