Default Re: How fast how much weight etc etc

Welcome fellow Central Floridian.......
Im one of the dozens who have built one of the Predator Harbor Frieght bikes. Mine is a 99cc put onto a Micargi Rover beach cruiser. It weighs in with me on it at about 240 lbs, Im guessing. With how I have the gearing on it at 9.6/1 with a Q-matic tranny, I have hit 42MPH at 5200 RPM. I rarely and I mean rarely push it that fast because I would like for my new build to last a little while. However I consistantly run it at 4500 RPM for an hour or 2 at a time without any struggle or worry. At 4500 RPM I run 36 MPH which is more than fine with me!http://

Prior to this build I did start with a 66cc 2 smoke kit and probably worked all the kinks out of it, but got fed up with tweeking the build all the time and made the decision to go with the Predator motor and test my fabricating ability. Im very happy I did and will not go back to 2 stroke except to put the old motor on another bike and probably give it to someone.
