Good brands for Kymco Vitality

Postby TechnoSam » Mon Feb 27, 2017 6:05 pm

Hello everybody, I'm new on this Forum.


I just blew my engine on my Kymco Vitality 50 2t and I figured I'd go ahead and have some fun with it (upgrade some parts). Thing is, I haven't done any of this in a VERY long time.

I do not know which brands of aftermarket parts are good and which ones are bad .

Any of you knowledgeable people would be kind enough to enlighten me with your knowledge? And if you are familiar with the brand/model, any recommendations before I get start on this journey?

Thanks!!

For the air-cooled Kymco horizontal engines, I really lean hard towards the Malossi cast-iron sport kit. The Airsal is nice enough, but has some problems with head gaskets and are not as reliable.

Where are you from? This can have a bit of impact on what kinds of parts are easily available. :)

I'm in Canada, I'll see if I can order that brand from here. I did see it on a few websites.

Thanks for the info Josh

I think that Scootertuning.ca is likely to have a lot of what you need!

Awesome, thanks!

I'm going to upgrade to a 70cc kit. I read somewhere that the carb most likely won't cut it unless you tweak the he'll out of it so I'll get a better one.

Also going to change exhaust, air filter and most likely the whole roller weights assembly.

I figuredon't if I upgrade the thing might as well go all the way.

Have you worked on this model before?

I'm going to purchase the Malossi 70cc Kit from the site you told me, do you have a carb that you would recommend getting that interfaces well with Malossi?

Thanks

Malossi also has a carburetor kit to go with that cylinder. I don't have the part number off hand - but I think it's 1611028. Don't forget jets! :)

I ended up buying the Polini Carb with the malossi adaptor to go with it.

I just received it yesterday and last night I realized that my current Throttle cable won't fit with it so I gotta do some minor modifications.
