i fixed the problem of the tensioner moving by attatching it to the top wheel brace/mount instead of the bottom, that way it pulls it tight and cant move, it does move very little tho, i fixed that problem by attatching a bolt in the idler wheel slide and attatching a guitar spring to it and the lower frame, ill try and get pics in a bit.

Push it in? As in squeeze the lever to remove power from the rear wheel?
It could be as simple as turning the idle speed up a little bit.

Yes sir it is butted right up to the hub tight and centered after a bit of filing to make it large enough to seat. Mind you I never put probably 500 miles on either of my builds but the wobble problem was solved. I have heard a few others do this as well.

(Phantom) pedal when riding thru intersections. Your motorized bicycle will be mistaken as a pedal bicycle to police and video cameras. If cops are giving you second looks, phantom pedalling = bicycle riding with lots of coasting.

My FD engine stalls when I come to a stop, so I have to take off pedaling, and then reach back and pull the cord after I'm moving.

It's definitely a bicycle with a small assist engine!

Ok, my tip: Paint the red plastic cover on the HS/Honda engines with black plastic paint to help keep you in stealth mode!

To avoid stripping out the mounting studs holes from overtightening I took 2" 6mm hex head bolts and threaded on the nuts, then installed the bolts. When the hex heads bottom out I can then use my wrench on the nut to draw in the mounting hardware without putting any added stress on the threads in the block. With the bolt not turning you are able to get a much stronger pull without stripping the block. This could probably be used on any stud hole on the motor however you shouldn't have to overtighten a carb or exhaust.
