Default Another 1st timer with a Roller

Practically stole the bike as I work at Wal-Mart and waited for them to roll it back and got my 10% off too. $72 was pretty good, I think.

Mine is a generic China powa kit from eBay. Black and slant head. I think I need more black. :grin:

Almost ready to fire it. Upgraded the engine bolts from SBP and a real spark plug wire from them while I was at it. Besides that it's pretty much just thrown together with a few little changes. Planning on ditching the Chikuni for a baby walbro in the near future, and a pipe.

One thing I've learned so far, which maybe everyone already knows. If you grind down the "locating tit" on the top half of the throttle cable casing, to just barely existent, you can put in a piece of inner tube and clamp it down nice and securely without drilling any hole in your bars. Nice if you later decide you want to do them differently, and easier to change out bars if you want to later on.

But for now, here it is.
