To make a pocket bike faster, you have to have an engine of a higher cc rating. CC rating of an engine refers to the internal space of the engine inside its cylinder at cubic centimeter. You can consider upgrading several other parts to make your pocket bike faster.
The pocket bike being small contains all small components that make it run at 15-20 Mph. Normally a motorcycle with a 50cc rated engine runs at 23-28 Mph. But some mechanical tricks are missing in a pocket bike that makes it run slower than an ordinary motorcycle. A smart transmission system is also a fact that matters here.
There are some small replacements and care that we can do to make a pocket bike faster. Big modification is never recommended by the manufacturers. So the basics of the changes should be followed by its maintenance and small upgrade.
Taking care of the transmission system
The transmission system plays a great role in speeding up a motorcycle. Lack of healthy engine oil might be one of the reasons your engine is getting slow. Dust from outside mixes up with engine oil and makes the gears hesitate to run in combination with others. So you should follow the mechanical sound and freeness of the transmission system. Regularly replace your engine oil and before replacement, empty the gearbox putting out previous oil that is already burnt.
The engine has an outline to let the engine oil go out. So let it fall down in a jar and dispose of in a proper place. Then cleanse the chamber before pouring the new oil. Follow your engine oil manufacturer’s direction about how long it will work. Don’t overuse.
Engine replacement is the best efficient way to speed up your pocket bike. The RPM rating of the engine plays the real game to run the bike faster or slower. RPM refers to rotation per minute. Spare engines are rated with their bore by stroke, horsepower, cc, and RPM. RPM is the last result of all parameters to indicate engine power. So as a common user or consumer, RPM is the simplest thing you should consider while replacing your pocket bike engine.
If you decide to change your bike with a higher cc-rated engine also keep in mind it fits the space you have in your pocket bike.
The weight of the new engine doesn’t matter. There are some other things to look for while buying a new pocket bike engine. So superclass manufacturer produces some engine to work finer with the same cc rating and even with less combustion. So take your time to find the best replacement for your pocket bike engine. If you have space you can go for a greater cc rating with confirmed higher power generation.
Replacing air filter
Combustion is the peak point of generating power to run your pocket bike and for that, it needs efficiency for better performance. The air that the corroborator takes in plays a great role for an efficient combustion. The dirty air crates more polluted exhaust resulting in low power. At the same time a poor air filter that is running for long and almost blocking the air to pass in will supply air slowly resulting in low power generation every cycle. So it’s important to follow up your pocket bike’s air filter at a proper frequency of time. If it can be cleaned do it, or manage to replace it.
Replace damaged spark plug
The spark plug that reached the end of its service life needs to be replaced as fast as possible. The spark plug does one of a few roles to generate energy in the engine. After the Piston compresses the air and the fuel to a smaller volume and space, the spark plug makes a spark fire probably by a short circuit. The spark is occurred by high variable voltage from 20,000 volts to 100,000 volts. So a damaged spark plug might commit spark with less voltage than the manufacturer designed it for. In that case, low firing will happen in the engine tank resulting in poor pressure on the piston to go up and down. Thus the power generation will be lower too.
So check the spark plug for a certain period of time.
Fuel tank maintenance
A fuel tank that stores the oil inside needs to be clean to make sure the fuel inside is clean enough. The best quality fuel will serve to make the best firing in the engine causing better power generation. So keep an eye on your fuel tank to make sure no dirty object or sediment is in your pocket bike fuel tank. Sometimes sediment in the fuel tank blocks the passages to travel to corroborators as a result of what low volume of fuel reaches the engine. So take care of that.
Gas Tank follow up
Many of the pocket bikes run on gas. The engines of those bikes burn gas instead of oil. Gas has some characteristics that are different from oil. Gas is stored in a cylinder in liquid form. Gas has higher pressure as a result of what burns faster than usual. So the pocket bikes often run short of fuel.
The bottom line of speeding up of your pocket bike is that the pocket bike is designed for the strongest grip in the trail and keep running and running in the off-road doesn’t need that speed because you won’t feel good running fast off-road. The challenge of the pocket bike is to run with stability on a rough trail passage that is not constructed for a vehicle. So speed is not the primary concern of a Pocket bike.
