Review of the 2005 Gilera 50 SMT:
Make a few changes to this bike.
Author: Guy, 2006-07-25|
Im 16 but have been riding bikes since i was 10 and i can tell you there is a few things to change. email me if theres any questions. email addy is at the bottom of the main review.
|The first thing if you are buying this bike is de-restriction,geared restricted 50cc´s are not advisable as you can only rev to around 5000rpm so pulling of at busy roundabouts is quite scary as you dont have the power. To de-restrict the gasket in the exhaust down pipe from the manifold needs to be drilled then re jet the carb, once thats done its a nippy little bike which will rattle along at 55-60mph which aint bad. you could do more but not advisable or you´ll end spending more time fixing it than riding. If you plan on using this most weather conditions(rain) change the tyres as the standard vee-rubbers tend to slide in the rain alot,this is good advice unless you want to fall off on every wet roundabout or corner. im running on metzeler lasertecs although ive spent £130 on 2 tyres it pays off in the wet. Also i changed the headlight bulb to a xenon of the same wattage as this wont drain the battery which means you can actually see at night.Another thing check where the wiring runs round the front of frame to make sure the cable-tie is not too tight or you end up with snapped wires.apart from that this bike is awesome it doest sound as much of a hair-dryer as other 50cc 2t. clutch and gearbox is perfect as you dont need to rev the nuts off it just to get out of first.Last and final thing if you buy the smt brand new the parts/labour warranty is excellent should you ever need it that is,no questions asked what ever the problem. email@example.com|
