The biggest bigfoot engine would be a 30.5 cc; they're pretty good and can rev up to 18k, which would be nice to have on a bike. Unfortunately I don't have the tooling necessary to rig up one of my Go-Ped engines

I think I'm going to go with a Jet kit from What do you guys think? I've heard they were a good vendor and that the kit is one of the better Chinese ones. I was planning on looking over the internals before installing it after seeing that thread about the grubee kit with metal shavings in it.

I'm also going to try to see if I can adapt one of my cylinder reed valves to it. Hopefully the intake port's bolt spacing will work with the reed I have (crossing fingers!). I'm also planning on doing some porting and will try to measure the port timings since I figure some people may be interested in that.

Does anyone know what kind of revs the 66cc Jet can handle? I don't want to push the engine too hard and blow it up when I get it...

Sorry for the long post. This looks like a great forum and I'm excited to get my first motorized bicycle built!
