Re: I'm done!
Hey Kip. I've read a lot of your posts and you always had good solid advice and info based on experiance. I hope you're not done, it would be our loss. A couple of weeks ago I helped a fellow forum member complete his installation of a chinese 2 stroke into a chinese Micargi he purchased from Spooky Tooth. He had the front tube squished a little but not enough to clear the studs. When I asked if that was a good idea, he said he was unstructed to do so. I had seen the posts about crimping the tube but actually it just ovallized it somewhat. I didn't see how it could weaken it, so I made it fit by squishing it more. The front mount fit real nice after that and the rear lined up perfect. I won't hesitate to do it again if I need to.
