This is a great site with lots of helpful folks. There's lots of info here that I wished I had known about before I did my build......may have done a few things differently.

I plan on hauling my bike to northern New Mexico at the end of September. A couple of the places are above 8000 ft. Should be interesting to see how she'll run!

Best of luck in your builds.
Thank you. All I can say is bring some extra jets with you! At my elevation my 2 stroke dirtbikes run fine after replacing the jets, if I go up on our mountain they hardly even start.

Don't expect neck snapping performance from a 2 stroke, at least until you put few miles on it. But it sounds like you have some experience to draw from so I'm not telling you anything you don't know.

We're glad you've joined us and keep us informed on the progress of your builds.

Just ordered my kit and the motor comes with a SHA Clone carb. Seems to run good in my buddies Arrow motor we just installed last night so hopefully it works well with a stock motor. That kit comes with a jet kit so hopefully Im plug and play

Wish I had a special view from here, Casper is more a high plains area. Think tumbleweeds....
