I'd suggest that you may start with the #73 and put the carb needle clip on the second from the top notch, I dont think you will need to be concerned about not having the #69 that is even bigger than any of my original jets probably 73 + or - 1 will get you where you need to be.

Good Luck.....and Happy Riding

Peace

lol #69 which I missed will somehow be THE one I need!

Went blazing past the radar speed sign again... and I remembered abt it in time.
It said 17mph, then I gave it all she had and got it up to 21mph. lol
Felt like playing a pinball machine! How high can I run up the score before the ball drops???? lol

Gonna work on the carbs and test it there soon.

I like it Wm,

I'll bet that thing is pretty darn quite, how does the engine run and pull with that set up?

Bottom line here is that I just flat out like your trike.....I may have to build one myself down the road.

Peace

Reapplied muffler sealer to the retention bolt on my clutch. I find it works much better then loc-tite for bolts that get hot or warm.

Thinking about swapping the HF79cc for a 99cc Predator. Aside from the extra cc's is a much better looking engine and being black, would match the Riverside's color scheme.

But after looking at Goat Herder's Morini, might opt for the big time upgrade. dunno

Used the motorized bicycle for it's intended purpose today.
Worked GREAT!
Only prob I had was sorting out my freight... Must build a basket !
Mechanically, the kit petcocks for the peanut tank leak externally. Maybe I'll be able to change it out today for one off my generator. I think they are abt the same size???
Stopped by the puddle for a photo op. :-)

I have replaced them with some from NAPA, just run a 1/8 pipe tap in the spigot first, and use a little gasket sealer on the threads

LOL Wayne.

MBs, is there any thing they can't do? Create relationships, reduce divorce rates and cure male pattern balding.
