Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

Im not super worried about this build because Im going to put forth more effort on the Dax motor but at the same time I want to learn as much as I can off this motor. My bud is running a 42T and getting 35+ mph and he is about 65 lbs heavier, Im light at 165.

I trust what your saying, Im just confused I guess. I was hoping the 36 would get me at a 35mph cruise speed. Im I asking to much?

As always thanks Map,
I was being conservative with what I said, I have gotten 38mph with a 36t and a mostly stock engine with well tuned carb and free flowing exhaust and you could very well see the same results.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
