Unfortunately this is my only source of transportation and the majority of my riding is in fairly heavy traffic and I'm not able to trust it .
these are not common problems among ht engines. this to me sounds like there is either an air leak, or you have done something wrong. dont get offended. we all probably have done something wrong once or twice while experimenting with ht engines. but if you are at the end of your capabilities with an ht motor, i would not advise that you buy any motor that requires any diy work.
