I would run Mag wheels since the rims use sealed bearings and can take the torque. The rear sprocket on mine is a 34-tooth
and the CVT is a game changer since the torque range is pretty uniform across the rpm band. The acceleration is wicked and
can throw you off the bike if you aren't watching...
This thing looks like fun and the only thing I would change if I was to build something like a nice build you
have here is the engine combination. I would try to shoe-horn in a Predator 212cc engine. :)
Thanks for some ideas and it's a real good build!
Not yet, I ran out of oxygen for the brazing torch and I mean to weld a plate into the frame. The 212cc engines like to break things
but they are good for road use. I'm running a real Japanese VM22 Mikuni carb on mine with the governor removed along with the
low-oil sensor removed. The factory...
I've had thee Sixthreezero extended wheel base model with the 212cc engine and the CVT on it for over 2 years with no problems with the frame.
Forget about using the in-barrel cassette on a ManicMechanic hub coupler, the small bearings on the hub won't take the power. I had to go to
Thanks for the photo! That's a real nice build done expertly have a nice Thanksgiving and Christmas!
PS, I've been eating turkey for the last two days and I will be working on the bird tonight after that it's
going into the freezer for Christmas.:)
Thanks Rick, the gas mileage and fun is good plus it gets addictive messing around with them, building and learning something. All you fellas
really help newcomers with their problems. Some of my friends are stuck on cars and I've been there and done that and all they will get you
are tickets. A...
Weather is rainy here today so there's not riding. :mad: I've been trying to get some miles on a new engine and can't get much done outside
this AM and PM. I've just about gotten caught in the rain this last few weeks and have been lucky and yesterday I ran into town with it
and got back just in...
