Default G'day, newbie here

Hi new here,
I have just recieved my Zbox 66 kit and well I was going to put it on an electra cruizer bike, but now I am thinking about getting a mountain bike to put it on instead. **** I might just get another bike and another kit, checked out grubee skyhawks cheaper than the zbox after I already bought it.

I have information overload after reading so much tech stuff that I think I am going out of my mind. Either way the bikes primary initial useage is getting from point A to point B and back via a dirt road of dubious quality to the coast for a spot of fishing with overnight camps. To any aussies reading this it's inskip point and area near fraser island if you are into good camping spots you will know where I am.

I also might decide to ride it from one end of the country to the other, just for the **** of it one day. Why not eh? Might make a good youtube adventure lol

Its just going to be stock, I am not going to be doing any mods on it after thinking it over, just propper tuning etc. thanks guys and girls, thats my intro.

Thanks mate, I got all excited and went to start the build on my electra, damn rear sprocket wont fit over the hub lol. So i've put the project on hold for a while and decided to hunt around for a good second hand mountain bike to use instead.

aaah another aussie? thats 3 new ones this week, im glad you joined,

a lot of people are scared of mods to there engines for obvious reasons, but raly these chinese pieces of junk need a bit of xtra punch, you will see when you first ride it

a few easy and cheap things you can do to help:
buy a cheapo poocketbike pipe from ebay cut the expansion chamber offa it and weld it on ur bike.
match the intake and exhaust but i have no clue how to do that but someone else will tell
take out that spark plug you got wif your kit smash it with a hammer if you want to or put it in the bin find an ngk spark plug for it
changing the plug wire may also help
