Does anyone know how far you can ride the 2 strokes without overheating and burning it up?

I'm riding thirty to forty mile trips at a time and the temp out here is in the high 80's right now and I've not had any issues and that's with stop and go traffic. Motor just hit three hundred miles and counting.

hey,
for all you DIY bikers who don't use kits.
for a good speed bike take off back tire and put the same gear on the other side.
than mount motor on back and attach motor on gear.
so when u peadal, the motor doesnt turn and when throttle is on, peadls dont whack u.

Ps Pablo Is that a XGames Motto Bike???

This has helped me,
never tighten anything all at once. I mean you tighten parts up slowly, run bolts down for a part to fit, then snug them up a little, then a little more, and like that until it's as tight as you want it. It's a typical torque method. Also, cross tighten your bolts, one on side of the part, then one on the other side. Go slow and never tighten anything on the first go.

Hey yodabob,
That is really a totally COOL BREEZE! very nice

To Long&Black -

Your spill helped me spend money today. Beside just turning 55 years (man, that seems so old in print!), I bought a good light-motorcycle quality helmet. It was $128. Expensive? Not really. Compared to your hospital bill, this was dirt cheap. I'm still good for $1 million of income between now and retirement. I'm not worth a darn if even slightly brain damaged.

I may look goofy when riding, but a real helmet and high-visibility jacket states I am serious about getting home at the end of my ride. Now if we could only better avoid the cagers intent on ruining our day....

Hope it helps.

There are two kinds of bikers, Those that have fallen, & those that will. I know a biker that sits on his mommies front porch and drools. Big bad Harley rider. No helmet, low speed crash. What a waste. Wear your helmet!
