    I got screwed!

    ...and all this is why BMW no longer imports, makes or sells the C-Series Scooter anywhere on earth. They decided to just AXE the poor design permanently, rather than spend any more $ on trying to make it EURO-5 compliant. (Everyone else did though...)They even axed the C-Evolution electric...

    Adding a Kymco AK550 to the stable. They are now Available in the USA

    No, it's a BMW-designed engine, made in China as cheaply as possible and supervised by KYMCO. That's why it had so many recalls, timing chain debacles, etc. KYMCO has NEVER built anything that slipshod...

    Exhaust Mod?

    Emulator plus a better (less-restrictive) exhaust will do it together. The emulator tells the CPU that it's actually running LEANER than it is, so it riches up the mixture, for better all-round performance, especially mid-range passing and top end. You tend to run leaner with a less restrictive...

    Exhaust Mod?

    They also carry a complete exhaust system for the C-series bikes, for just over $600. Comes as a replacement header, eliminating the clunky cat/muffler, and also a new exhaust itself...

    Exhaust Mod?

    You get almost the same exact improvement with this (with a better exhaust) for under $100 and it's "plug-and-play"! https://scooterpartsco.com/bmw/bmw-c650gt/malossi-lambda-emulator-for-bmw?zenid=df4f0dd3aee1a64aaecf06e4da8d8ac1

    brand new C400X - stalls

    ....and they built an even CHEAPER scoot out of China than the C650, and everyone trusted them???? It took 7 YEARS with the C650/Sport to address/recall/redesign/upgrade/repair most of the problems and inherent pricepoint-based shortcomings of their BIG scoots. Why should the cheaper "400" be...

    C650 Cam Chain Tensioner UK

    No, I don't hate them, in fact the C650 Sport in that last yellow color was a GREAT looking and performing bike. I just have an issue with the Q/C and Factory support. If those problems didn't exist, I would have bought one in a heartbeat.:cool:

    C650 Cam Chain Tensioner UK

    Sequence of events: 1.) design cheap Tmax rival, cutting every corner possible, sticking to antiquated designs. 2.) have built in cheapest place possible and entrust oversight to another company that speaks the language (and who turns into a Rival who designs a better motor...) 3.) deal with...
