A mate of mine is building a scooter at the moment and has an Imola kit to stick in it - he also has Fran Race and a Fran Super Tourer exhausts in the garage.

Anyone run this kit with either of these exhausts? What's your opinion of which would best suit the kit and what ratio gearing would suit each?

Many thanks :D

Fran-Race for nice long straight roads, SuperTourer for hills and windy roads if you don't want to be changing gear all the time........

I enjoy the Fran-Race but it can be frustrating if you're riding in a group and are constantly trying to get in the power band.

Cheers Mick1,

What ratio would you recommend on an Li150 box?

I reckon a converted Darrell Taylor evo would be a superb pipe for the imola,it works on a few other kits really well i have one on my super monza and its a really good pipe.
