I also would like to find 1-1/8" clamps of better quality. If anyone knows where I can get one, please let me know!!!
It ran today in the frame. My exhaust is currently the 1" stub that I cut off the stock muffler, so it shoots blue flames.
I still need to:
-remove the governor
-fab an upper mount
-fab up a gas tank
-make a jackshaft (can't align it without one. Period)
-lace in my disc hub and add a caliper
-figure out how to control throttle (i.e. buy a twist grip)
Cool build. I thought one of the main features of a Torque-A-Verter was to eliminate the need for a jack shaft. If the sprocket was on the inside of the plate, it may align. Extend the driven pulley shaft and put the sprocket inboard. Just a thought.
