hi steve

thanks for remembering me

yes the monkey is running fine but getting a little tatty now

best thing i did was lengthen the swing arm about 2.5" stopped it pulling wheelies on the steep roads

gearing is 18/39 and it pulls to around 8000rpm speedo shows around 55mph

but dont like to run that fast i stick to around 40 to 45

i am in portugal again and have had some runs up into the mountains this winter around 80 miles each time and the 110cc engine pulls great and does around 100mpg

im getting fed up with wearing out knobbly monkey tyres that the rear only lasts around 1000mls , front about 1500mls so will need to find something more modern possibly some scooter tyres
