Re: For you non-belivers- 79cc predator sent to California
I have one of these engines on my bike. You will need the wide cranks for it. and to get the engine centered you will need a jack shaft. I am running a centrifical clutch with a
#35 chain to the jackshaft and a 41 to the rear wheel. I ride in some hills so had to gear it low. 11 tooth on the clutch, 23 from it. 8 tooth on the drive side to the wheel with a 60 on the wheel. I don't have a speedometer so have no idea how fast it will go but it climbs the hills ok. I set my engine vertical and removed all the sheet metal. It looks good and runs even better then it looks.
Before you do anything check the valve clearance, pull the side cover and remove the gov., and check the insides for foriegn stuff. Mine was clean but you never know.
It is a little more work than putting a kit on but you will love it.
Made in Who Cares. Assembled in my garage. Jimmy
