Default Re: And Yet Another 1st Cranny Build - Some Issues

My Cranny uses the Manic Mechanic mount for the sprocket- I did the engineering to mount the HT sprocket as the holes do not match. Better off if you do not have machineshop experiance or gear to purchase one of their sprockets. Soon I will have a HT sprocket mounting device that will solve this issue, but untill then the MM gear out of is your best bet. ALSO- I did not see all of this thread, so I don't know if you've painted this thing yet- ACE 'Navaho White' in a rattle can is a close match to the fenders. If you wait two or three weeks after the final coat (during non-riding season- you want four or five light coats with 300 wet/dry sanding in between) the paint will hold up to fuel- the blue Crannies look cool when the gas tank matches the fenders.
The engine sounds like it's trying to die because it cannot just 'lope at idle' at speed. You are first and second gear- the engine is third. Peddle up to there with engine assist and hold the throttle ope enough to stay there.
