  • Hello again, have another question for you. Also wanted to let you know that I heeded your advice regarding my silencer set up, and it is working well. I just ordered a 6cc high compression head, and it will be arriving today. Its the same one you spoke to Kelly Dean about on this forum in October 2019.

    James a fresh plug would be good, but cleaning and gapping the old plug can work also to tell what you've got now after the head and gasket swap.

    I'd expect it to run better, but that's a part of reading the plug. Running lean is what you want to avoid I like a bit rich & just a little oily. Others differ with me but I've found my engines last well when setup this way.

    A couple of guys that I warned about running without enough oil in the mix just a couple of months ago are already having to replace cylinder and rings. The engines run real fast for a short while on thin oil mix ratios then won't run at all.

    Hi I noticed on a post of yours from a while back you were running the f2 thrust exhaust. I was hoping to run a similar setup to yours with the silencer on the end. Whats the easiest and cheapest way to do this, and does it negatively effect performance. Please let me know. Ive seen you all over these forums and respect your opinion.

    Yes the muffler does restrict power a bit, but was worth it to tame the roar! I used a kit muffler, cutoff the pipe on the muffler and the "stinger" pipe on the x-pipe but left a 1.5" stub on each to connect them, insert one stub inside the other and then welded. You need a support bracket mounted to the frame or you will break the cylinder at the exhaust port. This setup has worked well for me.

    Hi Paul. Is that one of the two "studs" that hold the exhaust pipe in place? If so I'd just buy a regular metric fastener at a local hardware. Don't over tighten these cause they will strip the block threads easily. Rick C.

    i really dont like putting bolts into aluminum, i just needed extended exhaust studs for a rebuild i just bought 6mm bolts long enough and cut off the heads clean up the cut with a file then double nut and use locktite to put them in and you wont have to worry about stripping the aluminum.

    In a worse case senario i have redrilled to tap and thread 8mm once again cutting off bolts for studs, of course i had to drill out the pipe flange to fit

    The best adapter is the 3 piece 3 bolt made by Sportsman Flyer here in the U.S. but I don't know if he has the 1" adapter, which is a relatively rare size here in the States for motorized use. His info is located in the vendor sidebars here on the forum as is Gas bike. You won't have many vendor options on the 1" size though. 44 tooth is the best all around sprocket.

    hey i would like some help on a gas bicycle if your have some time

    I hope you didn't think I ignored your comment, but it seems I overlooked it sorry. Rick C.
    Thinking about buying a pair of aluminum mag wheels for the bike and ran into a $^%(*() problem with the kickstand.
    The factory one seemed real heavy duty and was welded to a tube on the frame. I don't know how it was built on the
    inside? Work on the bike is still ongoing.

    Nice thing about working with a steel frame is they are far more forgiving to home welders with some skills. I always use drive off stands, double leg, motorcycle style on my motorized bikes. These require either sandwich plates or welded plate on the front of the chain stays to mount, I'm assuming that the factory stand is an interference?

    How do u tighten chain after it stretches?
    indian22

    All chain stretch's a bit initially & then wears over time. Most single speed bike chains are easily adjusted by moving the rear wheel back in the axle drop slots.

    Like to use spring loaded chain tensioners that continually take up the chain slack & that way I don't have tp periodically adjust chains. One tensioner on the motor side and one for the pedal chain.
