    • I rode my chuckus with the shrouds and my brother didn't have his engine shrouds on his, I made it 25 miles before mine started bogging out from over heating. My brother made it 20 miles and struggled the last 5 to keep up with me.

    • Take it off and paint it.

    • Zoom in I have a drow cover on mine

    • If u ran the motor with no shrouds would that cuase the motor to lock up

    • Ok. Thx

    • how tight was that fit with the yoshi? I was thinking about getting a drow cover but wasnt sure it would fit.

    • Not sure if you can tell. I have the yoshi from the ruck shop it's close but no issues

    • My 50 cc I took off and it runs fine for hours

    • Until your motor locks up from over heating. I bet you take the top end of your motor apart and valves have burn spots and your piston is a dark brown... lol

    • Run a cht guage and report back to us

    • If you set your afr correct i think youd be okay. Grom/z125 and a whole collective of other bikes are air cooled.

      Imo taking the extra cooling off is kinda dumb but i dont think youll lock up the motor

      You can always install a thermal cut off switch

    • I've done a 25 mile ride with 2 bikes, same motor same year same brand. 1 with shrouds 1 without. I made it 25 miles before mine over heated and bogged out. The other bike made it 20 miles. About as much proof as you need there...
