Ok then, I will look into it, does anyone know the cost of shipping one of these to QLD, Australia? I can't contact DAX at this moment.
My engine has been removed from the frame but here is photo's of the place where it was sitting and what the studs now look like, I have an idea for the rear mount.
The front mount is completely fine, no issues there.

Well I feel that my NT is beyond tuning properly, I have repeatedly adjusted the float level with no success in the WOT area, it performs alright
in low to mid range, no issues with idle either, apart from the idle screw being all the way in... I will be receiving micro drill-bits today so I may give re-jetting an attempt, just to confirm that my issue is with the amount of fuel coming in...
And yes, I have a heap of hills to climb
So I think a shift kit is a plausible add-on in my circumstances.

Culvercityclassics has a thread with an easy frame jig in it, too... 4) Yes you can, many bicycles, specifically multispeed cruisers with rear derailleur's...The shift kit itself tho, takes some serious aptitude and incurs extra maintenance and other teething penalties
Alright then, I will be purchasing one as soon as I possibly can, I think I can cope with the technical aspects of them, if not my father should help
Ok I'll grab the mount and bolts at the same time, I was getting very fed up with the stock soft head screws on the chain cover...
Aight, I'll see what I can find around here, I can't wait to embark on this adventure!
Ahh yes, that is good news, I was planning on keeping the pedal section as simple as possible, and seeing as I wont be doing much pedalling I don't see the need for a 21 speed set-up anyway.
Thank you all for your responses!
Edit: I cannot get a clone dellorto from DAX, the shipping is $50, and that is too much for me, I'll just try to re-jet the NT, If that doesn't work I'm going for a Speed Carb.
