2008 Peugeot Ludix Blaster from United Kingdom
The bike was great when I first bought it. It handles great, and the speed was good; managed to get 58mph downhill when only de-restricted.
Wanted more speed so added a Leo Vince ZX chrome pipe, but left the standard rollers in and it managed to wheelie from just pulling away. A week later added the 6.2 rollers that come with the exhaust, and it ran fine.
I've just recently added a Polini variator, which made no difference. Made no change in speed, and a couple of days later I broke down the carb, managed to let water in, and now it just bogs and back fires 24/7.
I've been told that I may need to add clutch springs to clear up the bogging and fresh rollers. I have cleaned my carb and the jets within it, and it still carried on doing it. I wondered if anyone had any info on the matter, because I'm quite worried about the back firing and the fact it won't go past 30mph until I get to a down hill place?
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? No

Try taking it to a garage and see what they say. I would say that it is the timing. Try and do a service on it, then change the spark plug, then change the fuel. And what would you call your bike, liquid cooled or water cooled?

Hi there, I guess you have sold the bike by now, as I have had endless faults, and have spent around £800 repairing it.
The problem you say about back firing is what I have just managed to fix after around a year of having the bike. The first thing was the water pump that went, which was causing spark plugs to burn out. Then never started and always broke down.
The solution is easy:
1) Clean the carb out and jets.
2) Fit a plug that on a Ludix Blaster 10 is a CR7EB, and lower that gap in the plug to 20 (just over half), and the bike runs faster and better than new I'd say! I now get 55-60mph flat.
