Does anyone have any suggestions on how to loosen up the suspension on a Yamoto 110cc. It is so stiff right now it rattles my teeth out. Any other shocks that might match up like a raptor 80 perhapsd?

I have not tried it, but I have heard that the Raptor shocks can be mated up. Careful, and test travel afterwards! A rubber stop to pad bottoming out may be in order for softer shocks.

well apparently there is some good news for us, we read that by removing the air flow restrictor plate and turning the governor off that we may actually be able to get some power out of this little 110cc One Banger. we will be doing some mods tonight in the garage and will post the results tomorrow. "Maybe we should have read the manual earlier" lol. We're also going to adjust the tire pressure some to get a softer ride as well as try and lower the level of the foot shift lever to allow for easier shifting.

Careful on the tire pressure, those sidewalls are a tad soft, you can roll the bead off the rim in a turn.

yeah, the changes helped the power a little, but I just don't think this is enough quad to keep up on our weekend excursions.

From what I see though the Eton is like 2x as much.

We bought my son a Marshin 150 which is very similar, and after getting it broke in, and getting rid of the junk air box, are very happy with it. We made a loop @ 45 mi. on the trails up in wis. over the weekend and had zero probs. The only thing my 9-yr. old didn't like was the throttle, too hard to push, and no cushion. We fixed that with a moose throttle extension, and he can't be happier. All for half the price as a Polaris 90 c.c. We have a Polaris 50 c.c. that he started on, and the 6 yr. old rides now, and we had more trouble with it than we have with this piece of junk as the polaris dealer called it.

we bought it right outside the campground at a local dealer. Its an extension of hard rubber I think, you just wrap it around the throttle and clamp it down with the supplied screws. Boy just brought me the wrapper, its called the thumb assist pro made by moose utility division. It gives them much more leverage, and also they can use the heel of their hand. By the way the wife also says that she likes it better now as well, as she has to share the 150 with the boy untill both finances and hauling capabilities inprove.
