Exclamation Re: lets get to the FACTS about which to build

Or better yet.....not running a cover or guard on just about any open faced tranny of all descriptions can get you instant lock-up of your engine which can have injurious results. You catch a pant leg in that drive train and you have instant lock-up.

You best run covers or guards on these units or you will pay the price......this is a warning from experience!

i think motor bike fanatic meant CLOVER engine kit... http://www.enginesonlineshop.com/Clo...BOX-v2012.html
Since there are so many ezm dealers on this thread, ill just put the offer out there. My buddy and i are in the market for 2 kits in the next couple months... we are in Lakeland FL. any EZM dealers with competitive quotes? we have both decided to go with the clover kit then upgrade to the Q/2matic when its affordable for us... unless one of you happen to have a kit for sale for under 600... or any dealers out of state, shipping costs are acceptable, but the unit price has to come down. cause i just cant justify double the cost for EZM. there is no doubt ezm qmatic transfer case is the best. but its unreasonably expensive for the kit. can we put the tranny on the clover engine? i think the mount is a standard size....thats the ultimate plan, unless we can find a deal somewhere.

any more thoughts on the dual chain driven hoot? ive not had a chance to ride it, sure its a bit louder, and a bit of maintenance. but for half the price.... its obviously not gonna push 5 hp... none of these will... any real info from someone whos owned this?

the engine itself also seems wider as it requires the use of an extended crank. but thats not a big deal with our balloon cruiser frames. we could buy the entire clover kit and the qmatic for the same cost of the stock EZM kit. somebody talk me out of this. or into it. anyone actually rode this chain hoot?

heres a youtube video of a guy doing precisely that, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGoj6_VFwnU switching a hoot gear box for the qmatic... on the HS 49cc engine. ill just get the inferior kit for 300, and get the qmatic later as an upgrade. im just too anxious to get it going.

An expensive paperweight at that......especially when you're on your 3rd clutch in six month's
