Default bicycle motor manual

this site is an awesome bicycle engine kit repair and modification manual. i woke up this morning trying to think of what makes this site special.

1. the friends you will make
2. its the ultimate motorized bicycle manual. you use the search just like you would use the index in a paper manual to find what you need. here is the nice part. if the motorized bicycle manual does not have what you are looking for you just ask and the answer soon appears.
3. if you do not understand something the manual says you ask and it will explaine it to you.
4. this manual helps you trouble shoot your bicycle motor
4. thank you every one for making this site so special and informative. its just gonna get better and better

By the way, is there some way to obtain an actual repair manual for the China motors?
I already tried Zoombicycles.com and they aren't available thru them. I'd be very interested in looking up such things as Head torque, Piston to cylinder wall clearance, CDI and Magneto ohms specs, etc.

Yep. Log on to this site, and use the Google search at the top of the page, you will find all your answers in a flash....or two.

Yes. There's no need for anyone to publish a paper manual. I don't suppose there's any market for one, either, when we've already got a (figuratively speaking) living, breathing manual right here.

One that updates itself, to boot.

What you read here is all opinions, but based on experience. Lots more valuable that the instructions I've seen that come with many kits and the plethora of youtube videos made my folks more interested in seeing their work on the internet than offering solid advice. Much of what I've seen borders on false, or just plain bad advice.

Here you can ask and get several replies of which you can make your choice as to what is viable or not. The prime rule is to do what works for you. There will always be differing opinions and nothing is written in stone. What works for you is the 'right' way to do it. The advantage to being part of this forum is that you are offered different ways to try the same thing. It's up to you to select the 'right' way.

Thumbs up Re: bicycle motor manual

Everything Paul said is correct. Just don't listen to that $50 Cruiser guy, something MUST be wrong with him- he rides in the snow!
