Tuning:
 
  Deristricting
 
    The A55 engine was so well designed that restrictions were put into place to pass emissions and safety standards.
 
  • Replace the larger 27T rear sprocket with a  22T or 24T.  The  22T will give you the best top speeds but you will lose low end.  Not good for areas with big hills and heavier riders.  24T is the best all around size for higher top speed, but retains good low end power. 
  • A55 Speed Kit-  High flow air filter and jetting. Increase top end and midrange.  Best used with a performance exhaust.  
  • Performance exhaust.  Stock exhausts are not designed for performance, are very heavy and restricts flow.  The key to unlocking the power of a 2 stroke is in the expansion chamber.
