Re: Pedal starting the HF 99cc Predator
once the EPA gets involved, everything is sacrificed for emissions. i had an idea for a belt drive cvt that is manually operated instead being controlled by rpm. it would use a regular drive pulley and a constant tension driven pulley. the constant tension pulley uses a spring to pull two halves of the v pulley together, so when you tighten the belt it moves the belt closer to the center and lowers the mechanical advantage (think going into a higher gear). this would allow for pedal starting
some people say that a motorbike defeats the purpose of a bike. i tell them to get a flintstone's car.
