You sir have me seriously thinking of getting a 4-stroke kit just for the reliability aspect of it.

I would rather smoke a Vespa than a spandexer!
Their easier to keep lit and they taste better!
We didn't ask for a WEATHER REPORT! Your fixing to join Norm up there in Alaska! You guy's will be quite a sight walking on the side of the road.
Maybe we'll outfit YOU with a tight Red tank top, with one size fits all White spandex tights with a "Maine" potato in back with blue flip-flops with those cool little lights that flash as you step!_!
Pat!
Are you following this!And Paul you could be on the same route!_!Kip.

wrestled with the bike's frame trying to get the motor to fit better. think i got it where it needs to be, just need to fix the broken stud on the front and bolt her in nice n tight, then it should vibrate less.

Finally properly mounted my engine to the frame.
Realised I could use the long studs from the previous engine to mount the current one as my bike has a large frame at the front so needed longer studs.

Can't wait to try the beauty tomorrow and see if I can get less vibrations.
