Modifications

It is very common to increase the performance of the engine in mopeds even if its against the law in some countries. On a 2 stroke, this is very easy and can be done in many ways. The most common is to buy a bigger cylinder, bigger carb and a exhaust that has a peak point of power at a higher rpm. The toothed wheels that drive the chain can also be changed. Unmodified, it will not go much faster than 70km/h at the red line of the rpm meter.

There are many modifications that can be done to the TSX. Minor ones such as lifting the rear wing is a easy job and will make the bike look much cooler. Bigger ones like changing the front forks to a pair from a Suzuki RM50X provide front disc brakes.
