It tells me all kinds of info like date & time, air temperature, ride time, miles ridden, compass heading, average speed, average ride time, calories I didn't burn pedaling, and of course max top speed.

I'm running a heavily modified 66cc China engine with single speed direct drive and a 36t sprocket on an adaptor. I use Opti 2 oil mixed at 100:1. The bike and engine have over 800 miles on them. Next comes a shift kit and than I'm going hunting for 50 mph...
FINALY !!!!!!!


i was wondering how well it would hold up under sustained high rpm driving, as it turns out that with 26in wheels and a 36t rear and you going 43mph your motor should have been turning around 8,000 to 8,500 rpms for quite a few min !

i would love to see this done at 40 with a 44t rear but over 8,000 rpms is what i was after when looking into opti 2 for race driving and it would apear you put it right up there..

how well did the bike stay at the proper operating temp ? did it over heat ?
and have you taken off the head and looked into the jug for scoring ???

i would like to know whaT YOU THINK ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE OPTI 2 OFFERS AT High rpms from your experiance so far and what mix ratio were you useing ?
here to stay and compleatly insane ! deal with it lol
