Default Re: Staton Robin Subaru crank shift kit

480 miles
28 hours
1 oil change
about 150 mpg

I've been quite pleased with the kit so far. Staton sent me some new thinner lube to put in the gearbox, free of charge . It eliminated the noise that I was experiencing but I now get grease leaking from the drive sprocket opening on the gear box. Can't have everything. I still have wobble in the front sprocket and the clutch is quick to engage. It doesn't slip much and I can get a jolt if I don't apply the throttle just so. I've had absolutely no problems from the engine but the fuel tank that comes with the kit is small. The cap on the tank has problems sealing if I don't take the time to get it seated properly and because it's so small, you can get splash back from gas pumps if you careless. I got a face full the other day . I've added some 55 watt halogen lights that kick A! I only get about an hour on my 8 amp battery before it's dead. It's more than enough to get me home.
