Adrenalin Pedstop - a virtual tour

If you haven't visited our shop in Barnsley yet or you've been wondering what lurks behind our doors, then let us take you on a virtual tour of Adrenalin in our behind the scenes gallery on Flickr. Take a peak inside our dyno room and warehouse, there's even a few photos of our old shop too:


New improved Polini Big Evolution air filters

Polini have improved their 'Big Evolution' air filters to better exploit engine carburetion.

The air filter pictured above (Polini product code: 203.0159) features a 'truncated cone' shape, it's easy to fit and is suitable for Yamaha Minarelli horizontal engines equipped with a Polini PWK carburetor. The sponge has a high filtering capacity which traps all the impurities in the air while allowing air to flow efficiently through to the carb.

The above air filter (Polini product code: 203.0160) again has a truncated cone, it's easy to install and comes with a set of sleeves of different diameters to allow fitment with most of the popular carbs.

RRP for the above products: 38 Euros (£30.59) + VAT

Pedmoto Series 1 exhaust system for Peugeot scooters

Great news for Peugeot owners! Currently in the pipeline is a version of the Pedmoto Series 1 designed specifically for Peugeot Speedfight 3 LC/AC models, Ludix Blaster, Snake and Jetforce C-Tech.

In terms of performance the S1 which is already available for 50cc Piaggio and Minarelli engines has already proven to be a clear winner compared to other 50cc exhausts on the market. Dyno tests carried out at Pedstop HQ (read the full article here) revealed top performance figures and great versatility in which you can set the variator weights making DIY setup very easy. The Peugeot model promises the same great performance, great value and great looks. And in addition to this, unlike other exhausts for Peugeot scooters, this one won’t succumb to scrapes and scratches during heavy cornering.

Pictured above is the S1 for Piaggio engines, the Peugeot model is scheduled for an early November release and at just £115.99 it's a no brainer. Product code: PMS1803.

As for the tyres themselves let's take a look at what's currently on offer:

Raceman: A semi-slick tyre offering "sporty durability". Available in sizes 10", 12", 13" and 14".

Paceman: Offers race performance and Schwalbe state that this tyre is extremely grippy when cornering. Available in sizes 10", 12" and 13".

Weatherman: As you might have guessed by the name this is an all weather tyre and designed to offer good grip in cold and wet conditions. Available in sizes 10", 12", 13" and 14".

New 'GET POWER' ECU for Yamaha TMAX 2008 > 2011

'GET POWER' is a new ECU from ATHENA engineered by GET for Yamaha TMAX models 2008 to 2011. If you're looking for maximum performance and ease of use then this is the ECU for you. It's quick and easy to install (plug and play) and offers improved engine performance, better acceleration and throttle control. It also has an RPM limiter tuned by GET engineers to maintain drivability and performance within safety limits. The unit is also GPA ready (Get Power Assistance). By connecting the optional GPA switch you can choose from one of ten engine power assistance settings and therefore tune the bike to suit any riding style or track surface.

It's worth noting that this ECU is designed primarily for standard engines using racing exhausts. The performance maps come pre-loaded on the device and have been developed by GET engineers in conjunction with some of the best riders. It's also possible to upload different mappings designed for engine modifications such as high compression pistons, cams or bikes running on racing fuel. So if you want more bottom or top end power then this is also possible. By using the optional PC-ECU interface you can download maps from the web in a few easy steps. Some maps are free, others available to buy.

Contact us for further details and availability. For more products from ATHENA take a look at our website.

New Polini Evolution 3 exhaust for LC Minarelli horizontal engines

Polini Motori have a new addition to add to their exhausts range with a new EVOLUTION 3 exhaust system developed to achieve max power from liquid cooled Minarelli horizontal engines.

This exhaust has been specifically designed for use with 70cc Evolution cylinders. The features are as follows:
  • Completely hand made.
  • Exhaust manifold flange with three holes to couple perfectly with the new cylinder and avoid possible gas escaping and power loss.
  • The manifold has been connected with a turned pipe to achieve the Venturi effect and improve the quantity of the gas scavenging consequently producing a power increase up to 14,000 rpm.
  • The visual look and the exhaust's dimensions have been studied to give the maximum yield when used with the TORSEN WD.
  • The silencer curve can be disassembled; it's possible to insert nozzles of different diameters to increase engine revs.
  • The silencer, made of black anodised aluminum is slightly longer to contain noise and varies in the internal diameter which is larger to improve acceleration.
  • The base is detachable to change the deadening material.
All these features improve the general engine performance; both in acceleration and in speed, for a fun ride at the circuits.

'EVOLUTION 3' exhaust system for 70cc Yamaha/Minarelli engines:
Polini part no: 200.0295
RRP: 306.68 Euros / £243.38 (+ VAT)
