I have a gy6 swapped ruckus. Running a Contra 1500tq spring, racing clutch, and racing clutch springs, shaved the drive face pin and pull a nasty 62mph at 8800 rmps. I weight 240lbs and Im 6ft.

Im not sure how you think your going to hit 70mph on a stock motor. But lets us know what was done and GPS verifies everything.
