Look closer, I cannot run the filter cover due to clearance issues. I use foam over the intake, secured with zipties. Been like this from day one.

Rode mine for the first time in over a week. Been sick and just haven't felt up to firing it up.

Seem's like she's happiest at about 21 to 22mph........that's the sweet spot as far as speed, vibration, motor load, etc. Maybe it'll increase the more it gets broken in. If not, it's fine as it is.

I went and saw my witched doctor and he prescribed me a new anti psychotic medication to help manage motorized bicycle ROAD RAGE.

Got a nice HT pull/centri built:




Then this happened after 2hrs of riding time:




So onto plan B, luckily had a spare to go in it:




The joys of motorized bicycle riding...

I finally removed the large, cheesy red Skyhawk sticker from my clutch cover. I 'polished' the cover with a 3M polishing wheel attached to my drill. It now looks a lot more 'mature' in my opinion.

I'd finally gotten my bike to where there were no squeaks, rattles, buzzes, good brakes, and to the point that I wanted it. Rode it a while ago.......felt kinda squirmy in the back. Seems that the bearing cones have backed out. Guess I've got a project this weekend.

Wait.......another project this weekend!

Don't fell bad, I blew up my PK80 yesterday . so now I'm building an even faster engine . ThatsDax has just gotten in a NEW TOTALLY BALANCED F-80 IN STOCK. I think he's calling the GTX Grand Prix .imagine that a balance crankshaft complete bottom in for 60 bucks plus shipping .its got Japanese bearings instead of Chinese and good seals . check it out I just ordered mine!!! And all black allen hardware .

Finally got the cones adjusted.

Also swapped out the plug wire and upgraded to an NGK BP6HS plug. The old plug didn't look that bad, but I've never been a fan of that funky 3 prong design.
