Default Re: Now I own *two* DAX GT50r motors........

Bought another Stage 2 engine & built up another bike. As soon as the engine arrived, I replaced the head bolts with the longer ones & did the red Loctite & 2 lock washers per bolt. Just out today on its maiden voyage taking it easy on the engine for a few miles. I think the base gasket on the 1st engine shot since I was able to pull away some paper under the engine. I ordered a .020 copper gasket for $10 from Pocket Bikes Unlimited today & once it arrives, will replace the gasket before taking that engine out for another ride. The power these puppys make truly is amazing and the gaskets & bolts may be the weak link here.
