50 setup question

Finally got my hands on a nice virgin 50......

What now?
I know everyone runs the handbrake and big bars, but should I put a clutch on it or a big bore kit?

Is the Ohlins shock a good mod?

Thanks for the input?

Bigbars
Handbrake
Stunt pegs
Stiff rear spring

Ohlins and a clutch is completely unnessesary. Stick with the stock motor for now, 88cc is really hard to learn on at first.

big bar kit, street tires, heavy duty front springs, heavy duty rear spring or a aftermarket shock (im thinking ohlins might be overkill for a stunt fiddy), stunt pegs, and maybe a rear handbrake if you want.

i would hold off on the clutch and learn the auto clutch, and would def hold off on a big bar kit any time soon. 50's hurt, 88's hurt worse.

our resident fiddy expert suggest this shock, even moreso than an ishock.

if you want to pull some stoppies easier without breaking the bank on the front disc brake kit, buy the "extended brake lever" from 50stunt.com..
and +1 to everything else said so far

If you're running a clutch, where do you put the handbrake?

Same place, just have to get creative with how you position the levers.

big bars are pretty much a must, unless your a midget or 9 years old.

what i do is just take the wheel off and hit the brake pads and the inner hub of the wheel with some sand paper to get rid of all that caked on brake dust ... works well
