kxGallegos183's review of Kymco Super 8 50

“bought a used carburated Super8 50cc”


written by kxGallegos183 on 27/07/2023

Super 8 2014 model, cheap, 5000 km on the clock, but speedo was broken, it looked maybe up to 10K driven, don't bothered about, put on an 15$ CYPLUS bycycle GPS-speedo....., so far replaced a battery, did usual oil and gearoil airfilter maintenance once a year, breaks are fine, adjusted the carb a little more fatmixed because it stopped sometimes on trafficlights, pretty easy 1/4 turn on the screw inwards on top of the carb, changed the vario to unrestricted by replacing the restricted sleeve by an all flat one, cut the brown CDI-loopcable and by this derestricted the CDI (works with all Kymco 50cc CDI flawlessly, but you have to drive it with an unrestricted variator-sleeve and don't drive maxed out acceleration downhill, in order not to provoke a valve-cylinder-collision). It goes 55 km/h on flat and 60+ up to 70 (steep) downhill. Pretty reliable and biggest 50cc you can buy. Handling at all speeds is very nice, above 65 you get some uncomfortable vibrations, so stay under all is fine. I am 1.87m/97Kg and the scooter is comfortable without any issues up to 1h drives. After that the seat gets a little hard. Very easy to maintain so far, fixed all by myself, needed just some simple tools + a variator-fixation tool for some few bucks.
