OK, OK... I posted to an old thread, didn't realize, stick a spoke in my eye! HOWEVER, it was still good info. I'm reading many of the messages for education. I can still claim "Hey I'm New"
Bare with me

Roger that, no offense taken. I realize ya got to have a sense of humor to build these MB's. I can take apart a 767 AND put it back together, I'm still scratchin my head with some of the engineering on these things!!
Gotta love it!

Not only is high octane gas not necessary for these engines, it actually contains less energy than reguler.

The octane rating on the pump is hardly accurate. Industry calls it "Average", it is basically the detonation point that a test group of engines detonate at. Aviation and race fuel are measured in true octane or the ability of a fuel not to ignite prematurely. For the 2 stroke engines(most) I concur that regular fuel is fine. Compression is not anywhere near high enough unless you have sharp edges in the combustion chamber(there is another thread on this somewhere)
Enough outta me.

brakes. alot of people use walmart bikes for these kits and the s****y v brakes arent up to par a good way to fix this is to use go-ped hardtire brakes they are better than most high quality disk breaks.
