Hi, I'm a newbie and am really glad I found this forum!
I've been thinking about purchasing this bike. Right now my friend is allowing me to "Trial-ride" a Baron Lazer 49cc moped she has for sale for one week. This thing has horrible acceleration. Up a hill, it went 5 mph. From a dead stop, trying to cross an intersection, has HORRIBLE acceleration. It's brand new and there's an oil leak. The guy that put it together said this was normal at first until it seals itself. Does this make sense? Worst of all...I haven't been able to locate a dealer that has parts. The good news about that bike is it's only $765.
Ok, enough about that. I really like the xb-600 and I was wondering if you all think it would have better acceleration? I know a lot of you have done the modifications and was also wondering how the bike has held up. My husband isn't too cranked up about buying a bike and then having to modify it. But most of all he's worried it can't handle the extra voltage and would fry the motor.
Zerogas, I'm really hoping you see this....I would really like to know how your bike is doing!
Thanks for any help.
