Mine is de-tuned from the factory! I have the stock CNS carb..so it only runs about 30 mph. I haven't had any issues with the engine here lately, mostly just running out of gas (I don't put a lot in it). Granted, I DO have only a 100 something miles on it...

I live in Pennsylvania and I run an ngk b6l. Been running it for almost two years, just changed it a couple months ago. 6 is probably a little hot, but I run WOT most of the time and my engine is almost a year and a half old. I check the color of the plug regularly and its dead-on.

That's the way I look at it, if the color is right, don't bother changing it.

The NGKB6HS thing is just a general recommendation. If ya find something else that works for ya, go for it. Like I've always said, It's your bike, build it your way.
I built a trailer out of a kiddie trailer about 3 years ago. I'll try to post pics later.

It is a good general recommendation though.
I thought about the BP7HS, but I was going to AutoZone and they carried the B7 so I got that.

Texas ain't Death Valley or nothin, but it is probably a little warmer than most places in the states, so a little cooler plug should work just fine for you.

Default Re: Mounted the tank up front...Goat style

The bracket looks a little rough, but I like the style of tank and mounting a lot.

What's the ratio for your pedals? That is nice work.

well, it tops out at 3 mph when pedaling XD sometime i need to order some new sprockets so i can run the 40t in the back then i should be fine with the pedal ratio at that point.
