A head steady from the top of the motor to a couple of points on the frame will spread the load and reduce vibration induced cracking.

The way I do resize is take it from the mobile device through USB to find it in the DCIM folder for the mobile device upload. Then right click and select open with Microsoft Office Picture Manager. Then I click edit, select Large Size 1024 X 768 and hit OK under original size / new size. Then I close the editor and exit MS OPM. A 1 Mega Byte picture is then usually under 200 Kilo Byte after the resizing and works on MB.com

It may be that you want to keep a high resolution picture so in that case your mobile device still has it left in a high resolution. Also keeping another backup copy high resolution on a PC HDD is what I do as well.

If it is Android I saw this site

http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...ize-photo.html

I never used any of the apps that resize, but another way maybe to see if emailing a photo to yourself on a mobile device automatically resizes smaller for email or has options for size, but I saw no adjustment on the android phone of mine.

Only if you set the size before taking the pictures then that is easy to do in the camera setup. That is not really best if you want a high resolution back up.

Also is sort of funny is the 2nd to last comment and the moderators reply

Think I figured this photo thing. Wow this is easier on a PC. So after I noticed the crack, i removed the bar. Now I am debating on weather i use the 212cc or one of the two 8 hps.

Removed the governor yesterday. Mounted my engine today. Had gotten a universal mount. What junk!!! I won't even take a pic cause I'm embarrassed!!!! I'm getting 1/8 x 4 flat stock Monday so I can make one. I knew i should have made one but I convinced myself it be ok to order the universal mount.

Made a mount, mounted the engine, it is solid but I'm still debating a gusset from the headset to the motor.

The above picture links is a while back before a lot changed on my bike, except that the gussets welded are the same.

I put gusset shims of sort under the motor mount plate to even out weight stress. Also weld metal plate on the frame top tube to mid (where I have those) an to bottom tube in front of engine (not connected to engine though) to spread stresses in frame out.

My engine is 1/2 the hp of that 212 and checking with others that have had issues using a 212 to see what is best.

Recently I saw posted where using the other mounting points on the engine of the 212 had caused engine to crack the case. I suspect the base engine bolts have a better strength but the ones otherwise that are there for the gas tank seemed to be a down fall.
