its probably because that stock shifter sucks. I just took mine off and replaced it with something similar to this.

The extra 1 or 2 inch extension really helps. Its easier to shift and it really helps for an adult foot! And if you get one make sure it the folding tip, not necessary but it doesnt get caught it the grass and bend when you drop it.

Awesome, was hoping there was some kind of fix for that. Here is my Ebay list so far:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...category=35580
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/REAR-...2em118Q2el1247
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-B...spagenameZWDVW

The first two, if they are decent quality(I will wait for someone's opinion) I'll go ahead and grab tomorrow. The bar kit I'll have to wait on a bit.

barkit is more important than springs and sprocket it should be your first investment then a rear spring and street tires. the fronts springs .then if you want a sprocket go for it. uni filters gutting the spark arrestor will give it a lil more power.

I ride a stock phifty, the only upgrade to it was the uni air filter I added when I bought the bike. I haven't changed the sprockets any since I bought the thing. Like they said at first it is hard to get it to come up. I have a bigger phifty that helped me learn to bounce the front end and chop the throttle to get the bike to come up. Then I started to learn on the smaller phifty. The big bar kit will help out a lot, but I did manage to learn to do sit downs and staggers on a stock set. I might be changing out one of the needles in the carbs. A buddy of mine was saying that it would help out the lag in the motor. I would just say coming from another noob it takes time but once you get it your going to be hooked on it. I actually be ignoring my big bike and riding the phifty when it isn't freezing or raining.

adjusting the idle-air screw will tune the carb, and smooth out any laggs, or stumble, from zero-1/4 turn of the throttle, the needle is for 1/4-3/4 throttle only.

I'm sure I'll have more questions so whatever I can't find on the boards I'll try to keep in this thread


Thanks
From what I understand a CDI box is useless on a stock motor........

My pennies, for what they're worth, when learning to wheelie it, start in first, from a standstill, with your feet on the ground.

Throttle it up to balance point and then drag your feet on the ground to help balance. I did this and could ride out first gear wheelies all the way across the lot after about 15 minutes.

It will eat up your shoes like a meat grinder, so get some shifer shoes and duct tape the toes.

I only got to play on the 50 a little, but I was getting close to bringing one foot up to the pegs pretty fast - wouldn't have taken much more practice to get both feet up.

This 50 had big bars and I believe -1 front sprocket.

I hope not It wasn't too bad with my boots on. I guess I'll just have to wait and save up and go straight for the bar kit
