Cut out my second bracket to support the other side of the engine. Now I need to get some angle iron to mount the bottom plate to the muffler clamps that will go around the tubes.

Please take a look at my build and tell me if I might need more support with the upright brackets bolting the engine in?

Then just put the old engine on the bench and rebuild it. A spare engine is a nice thing to have around in case yer sister or brother or uncle or mother decides to take it for another spin. It probably just needs a top end rebuild, $50 or less.
And yeah, locks are good things.

Like I said, The cheapo with the little clip. That should have been replaced already. It's just that it's a PITA if it happens in the middle of a ride.
And O.P, Do ya mean yer slide (or plunger,) needle? cause a float needle is what closes the fuel flow (at the fuel intake fitting,) into the bowl. The float needle is a short, thick thing and would be real hard to bend without a hammer.

Put new forks on my bike along with a ram intake. Tested it without the ram and it went 28mph ( all stock). Put the ram air on and got the lil china girl going 34, used a GPS to get the speed. Then while riding to work the chain fell off and now it looks like imma need a new chain.

Yeah Brad, If yer going for Warp speed ya gotta upgrade. Just make REAL SURE the motor sprocket is EXACTLY in line with the rear sprocket. I have a very easy way of checking this if yer interested.
