Default 212 hf run vertical

I have read a lot on the 212 and still not sure on how to run her strait up, how much oil total, any mods needed other than intake for carb? Will it live with out the shrouds and fan? It'll go on a new bt project, thanks.

Vertical 212 cc builds have been done by a lot of builders.

Seeing you are in Riverside there will be a few of them at the
April 13th race in Apple Valley, meano larry and culvercityclassic
will have 212 cc and 99 cc vertical Harbor Freight bikes there.

Come on up to Grange Motor Circuit, talk to the builders and see
the bikes up close.

Do you mean too say that people actually run these engines at an angle that they were not designed to be run at? Why would you want to do this?

Get building because all your concerns are for naught.
