Welcome to the forum!

The Super 8 150 is going to be a better platform to work with than the typical GY6 as the parts are higher quality and somewhat better performing as well. You can install a big-bore cylinder along with some CVT modifications to get it running a bit better than factory, but before going too far in-depth with suggestions it's important to know more about what your goals are with the machine.

I've been working on getting detailed camshaft profiles for the cams that are available on the market. Unfortunately I haven't had time to work much on that lately. I believe the Super 8 150 comes with a better than average camshaft already though. I could easily be mistaken about that though...

Anyway, let us know more about what you want out of the machine, what kind of money you want to spend, etc etc, and perhaps a bit more relevant advice can be given. :)

All I'm looking for is a good running scooter. The way it runs now is
Not bad just want it to run strong. Being new to scooters I thought
asking someone with experience as to what is the best bang for
The buck. I was thinking a better exhaust. Ignition upgrade. Different
air filter. And improvement to variator clutch & other parts. With that
Suggest away.
Thanks Josh
