Do you want to spend the money modding the Zuma? As the Penguin says, it might be cheaper to sell that one and buy a slightly larger bike. You don't have to go from that to a 1000cc track bike, but another 50cc's on a scooter would be a nice bump.

I'm into hopping up the zuma, I heard those things can be pretty snappy, maybe even run with those 919's

Big bore, carb and better exhaust. Look into Sport Pro and Motoforce kits.

Chrome wheels, chrome swingarm and a 'busa motor.

Just kidding, I'm sure you can find some way to give it a boost.

When I die I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather did....not screaming in horror like the passengers in the backseat of his car.

70cc kit and exhuast; with my 200lbs I can do 50mph on the Zuma. This should be all you need.

I used to have a Zuma, and the previous owner did the 70 cc overbored engine and had a sweet expansion chamber exhaust. I also had several different sets of flywheels for the transmission so I could get a better top speed, or better low end if I wanted. I could get up to 55 mph. Fun little scoot, tho.

Damn, 78mph is really impressive! what did you do to your SR??? I had the same scoot with all the typical mods (big bore, pipe, racing clutch, contra spring, variator, roller weights...). It would launch pretty good off the line, but would barely hit 55mph on flat ground, and get up to about 65mph going down hill. 78mph would have been a blast!!
