    Will do, ill get it installed this afternoon. Glad to hear my 4 stroking "problem" is more of a good thing. Do you recommend cleaning the plug before riding it those 20 miles, in order to get a more accurate reading? Im assuming it has some pretty significant buildup by this point. Since I have...

    Also my bike 4 strokes up until high rpm, at which point it really gets into the power band and runs much faster. Any idea what could cause that, Jetting or too rich? I know this is a lot of questions, but you tend to be the guy to ask. Sorry this is split up so much, they limit the characters...

    I wanted to ask about the installation process and requirements for use of this new head. I now you recommend copper head gaskets, but I only have the standard silver ones that comes in most gasket kits. Do you recommend using 1 or 2 of them on my setup? (Zeda 80, 36T sprocket, mixed 32:1...

    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...

    Extremely Budget Custom Silencer? (No weld)

    I just put the F2 Thrust exhaust on my 2 stroke, I know its a little controversial but I like it. It looks really good, and sounds fine, also gets me good power. That said its just way to loud, I really need to know where to get or how to make a silencer for it, preferably as small as possible...

    New bike, does my idle sound ok?

    Just slapped a new bike together. Wanted to know if my idle sounds alright, let me know if it's too fast, lean, or rich. I will adjust accordingly. Still on break in fuel mixture. Thanks guys. (I killed it at the end, it didn't stall or anything)

    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...

    Just put a performance kit on, can't get it to run. Any help?

    Just took the air filter off and this is what I saw when twisting the throttle. No visible effect that I could see. I went ahead and tested it with the filter off and it operated as it has every time I have tested it so no surprises there. I'm gonna work on straightening out the cable, and then...

    Just put a performance kit on, can't get it to run. Any help?

    Will do, I'll get to work on those things tomorrow. And yes it's a temporary set up, just wanted it to be easy to remove so I could mess with it before I get it all cleaned up. Thanks so much for the help, I'll get back to you soon.

    Just put a performance kit on, can't get it to run. Any help?

    I figured I would start with broad photos, in the event I have done something obviously wrong. Such as Installed something backwards or just blatantly incorrectly. I can take more specific photos on request.

    Just put a performance kit on, can't get it to run. Any help?

    I have visually checked spark and it is good so you are correct that the engine is getting both components needed to start. When I say the throttle has no effect what I mean is on twist it impacts the engine in no way whatsoever. The twist is also very short compared to my other bicycle. As for...

    Just put a performance kit on, can't get it to run. Any help?

    Unfortunately I purchased this kit, https://www.gasbike.net/products/gt4-pro-racing-66cc-80cc-motorized-bicycle,and installed it on a entirely stock bicycle. So I don't actually have any other carbs I would be able to swap onto the assembly. The parts listed in that link are exactly what I am...

    Just put a performance kit on, can't get it to run. Any help?

    Just put a fairly tame performance kit on, with a Keihin carb and a Reed valve assembly. When I let out the clutch as expected it idles up real fast, but it won't stay running and the throttle has not noticeable effect when I twist it to try an warm up. Any ideas why this may be happening, I am...
