== Engine ==
The Maxi's engine came in three different horsepower ratings: 1, 1.5, and 2 HP, which correspond to mopeds limited to 20, 25, and 30 m.p.h., respectively. It is believed that the 1.5 HP version can be altered to effectively become a 2 HP version by [[derestricting]] the [[airbox]] and [[exhaust pipe]].
== Transmission ==
Maxis were produced in both [[transmission|one-speed]] and [[transmission|two-speed]] versions. The two versions can be identified by the shape of their [[gearbox]] covers; one-speeds have circular gearboxes while two-speeds have rectangular gearboxes. Both types are automatic transmissions, operated by a centrifugal [[clutch]], which engages once the engine reaches sufficient [[RPM]]s. [[Transmission fluid]] should be changed every 3600 miles using ATF Type-F fluid.
== Spark Plug ==
The [[spark plug]] on a Maxi should be [[gapped]] between .016 and .020 in (.4 and .5mm). Some spark plugs commonly used on Maxis include:
* Bosch W8AC
* Bosch Platinum 4214
* Champion L86
== Fuel Tank ==
The Maxi's fuel tank is contained within the moped's frame. It cannot be removed.
