woah that looks like a peice of work. first things first. i just opened the box and tried to install the engine and even with some clamp with nitrile rubbers ENGINE MOUNT With NITRILE RUBBERS For Motorized Bikes! - eBay (item 400135569615 end time Apr-06-11 20:42:14 PDT)
i can't figure out how to get it mounted. i'm looking around the internet trying to find close ups. alot of people seem to be using this same bike so it can't be too big of a deal. i read about cardboard inside the clutch cover already and somebody was saying it might break apart or get ripped up by the chain and possibly cause problems. that cardboard in the clutch cover would seemingly only lessen the chain rattling noise. i'm more worried about the sound of the motor really. i'm not so worried about losing a little power. i wouldn't be so paranoid if key west wasn't crawling with cops.
