    What do you goons use for......

    What do you guys use to record your riding adventures? I think the way to go is a pair of camera glasses! If you are on a budget, you can get a pair of Excelvan 720p sunglasses for only around $20 and some change on Ebay or Amazon, though their field of view is pretty narrow. But if you have...

    Motor Got Stuck.....

    So, about 2 months while riding my awesome Chinese powered beast..... the stupid carburetor came loose and the motor locked on me! So, I opened up the motor and noticed the head and piston was fine. I then turned the motor over with a ratchet onto the bolt of the chain drive and luckily it...

    Just wiped out.

    It was a nice afternoon today, sun is out...... birds chirping away their love songs in order to entice mates, the cool breeze all around whispering to me in my ears to get out there and live life, so I figure, why not go for a ride on this joyous day! Put on my favorite shirt in case I might...

    Annoying 'Popping' Nose On Cold-Start

    Whenever I cold-start my bike, there is a loud pop pop pop noise that I'm assuming is coming from my exhaust manifold pipe...... I've tightened it down to make sure it isn't leaking and I see no holes in it. My question is, what's causing the pop pop pop sound when starting the motor up? It's...

    Rear wheel locking up intermittently

    So, I noticed it was getting harder to pedal as if the rear wheel is being squeezed by the brake even though it's not. Upon more pedaling, I can hear a loud squeaking sound, I tried to listen intently to see if it's from the rear wheel bearing or the motor, it seems to be coming from the motor...

    Keep losing spokes on wheels

    Is it because of the rag joint sprocket holder? I'm on my 2nd set of wheels and already lost like 4 or 5 spokes..... causing my wheel to wobble worse than Lindsay Lohan on a drug binge. What can cause the lost of spokes, is it because of the rag joint? I really don't want to cough up what is...

    Motorized Bike Build-Off!!

    We should have a bike build-off on this forum, and then have members cast their votes to see which bike wins. The competitors each have to start from an agreed total budget for the build-off.... (I'm thinking under $200 total?), I would like the total amount to be low to see what kind of...

    I was out riding and got to thinking.....

    what is it with kids that whenever they see you riding your motorized bicycle, their eyes light up, and with a big grin on their face? Little munchkins best slow their roll if they know what's good for them........ don't want them getting too excited that when they grow up they're gonna lack...

    Motor Locking Up

    Let's say..... if you're going like maximum speed and the motor locks up on you, wouldn't the rear tire lock up and throw you over the handle bars? I'm starting to get scared about riding fast now with this thought in my head. Has this happen to any of you guys?

    Do you guys ever get.....

    Do you guys ever get bad looks from people while riding on your motorized bicycle, especially on trails? When you are approaching a lady pushing a stroller, do you shut off the motor or do you just zoom pass her screaming 10,000 RPM's? What about people walking dogs, do you shut the motor off...

    100LL Aviation Fuel

    Have any of you guys use 100LL Aviation fuel before on your high compression performance motors? It's 100 octane rating, I believe, and is leaded gasoline. Just wanted to throw an option out there for you all, some of these fuel are readily available at certain gas stations, I think, mostly...
