Hub adapters :
IMHO !!!!!
A disk brake hub with a sprocket bolted to the hub rather than the rotor is the best choice for a rear drive. And in some cases , cheaper ..... Again JMHO....

Apparently those cool anodized fuel filters on eBay don't flow enough for my China Girl, I liked the way it looked too. Oh well back to Visu filters.

Just get an automotive fuel filter like that... They do sell some of the anodized ones at most the major auto parts stores like Pep Boys, O'Reiley's and AutoZone... I use the clear screen type filters they sell at Advance auto in the small engine section on mine since I can see thru the filter real easy and it uses a rather large fine mesh screen to do the filtering and they can be back flushed every so often if ya see too many particles gathering up on the screens.

Some of those anodized fuel filters use the old style sintered brass filters that used to go in the carb inlet on the older type GM 2 and 4 barrel carbs, those type flow really well while still being able to filter out most the nasties you'll find in today's gasoline, the sintered brass filter elements can also be reused by dipping them in carb dip like Berryman B9 Chem dip, then rinse off with a blast of carb and choke spray, so if ya buy 2 of them you can run one while dipping the other.

Yeah this one looked pretty but it starved my carb. I ordered another visu filter.

My other one cracked when it was cold, it touched the hot cylinder and that was it.

Want to double the range of your gasoline bike? I've stumbled on an easy way of doing it.

It would be simple to feed both tanks into the intake using a "T" fitting.

I didn't set that second tank up there for this reason, actually. My problem was that the tank in front sits so close to the engine that I can't find a reasonable way of routing the fuel line without it being closer to the engine than I'm comfortable with.

So I set that second tank up there thinking that I'm probably going to need to mount the tank over the rear wheel on this build.

Then it became clear to me just what a second tank could do for range. Though I don't suppose I need that extra range.

But some folks might.

Just a little cleaning tip for getting grease off of your hands if you don't have any goop/orange stuff or handcleaner. Take some vegetable oil and rub it into your hands like you would hand cleaner or soap... followed by dish soap. Rinse. Works way better than just dish soap alone.

Just wanted to link to a post in a thread I started since I though this might help someone that needs to change the crank seals on their engine.

I made me a little simple crude tool that makes the job a breeze and will prevent damage to the seals as they're installed.

Here is link to thread, just scroll down to the 3rd post on the first page and you will see how I install the seals and the simple tool I use.

Needed to spread the rear stays to mount disc AND sprocket. Best way I've discovered is to use a $3 turnbuckle. Opens them up evenly. Don't go too far.
