    My left side pedal snapped off when I was riding today

    I'm guessing the wide crank set is universal? So whether you have a beach cruizer, mountain bike etc it will fit any bike? Just curious.

    My left side pedal snapped off when I was riding today

    Yeah there’s a bike shop near me I’ve been to before. I’ll probably just pay them to put in a new crank and pedals. Fortunately I was only about a 15 min walk from home when it broke.

    My left side pedal snapped off when I was riding today

    Yeah. Was planning on doing that. Are they generally expensive? Never had a pedal break before. I’m guessing any bicycle shop would sell them. Just worried if I get new ones will they hit my exhaust. Don’t have a torch etc to bend the exhaust. The ones the bike came with happened to clear.

    My left side pedal snapped off when I was riding today

    Fortunately there’s no piece stuck in the hole in the crank the whole pedal threads just stripped out in the hole and on the part that goes into the hole. I can post a pic tomorrow after work for a visual.

    My left side pedal snapped off when I was riding today

    I know it’s just a cheap cranbrook from Walmart is there an easy way to fix this or would it just be better to go to a bike shop and get a whole new crank set for it that might be a better quality? Thanks for any help.

    Sounds like piston is hitting spark plug...

    Ok I ordered 2 of those plugs on Amazon so I have an extra. When I get them I'll put one in and let ya know if the motors running better. Thanks again.

    Sounds like piston is hitting spark plug...

    Ok. If I remember right I had Autozone look up that exact plug but the only result they got was the one I bought. Would I maybe have better luck at like oreilly or carquest auto parts? As for the oil mix, soon as my gas can is empty I'll switch to 32:1 and try that.

    Sounds like piston is hitting spark plug...

    Hi everyone. In the last couple days, I've noticed what I can best describe as a "clinking" noise when it idles or when I try to ride. When I try to ride it it struggles and can barely accelerate. Doesn't even have 5 hours run time on it. It's running 40:1. I'm going to check everything I can...

    Is it possible to completely remove or disable coaster brake setup

    UPDATE... checked my plug again after running the bike for about 30 mins. Seems to be a bit more grey than black. Still too lean? I’ll post a pic tomorrow after work.

    Is it possible to completely remove or disable coaster brake setup

    I just wanted to say thank you to all who helped me with building this bike from A to Z. Took the bike out earlier, got the coaster brake anchored to the frame and so far it seems to be holding up. Went out riding for a bit and was sooooo worth it! I will keep you guys updated if anything else...

    Is it possible to completely remove or disable coaster brake setup

    To indian22: what kind of bracket is that that the other two pieces connect to? I like that setup and willing to try it on my cruzier. Thanks! I'll post a pic of how mine looks right now a bit later so you have a visual.

    Is it possible to completely remove or disable coaster brake setup

    Or another way to secure the arm to the frame? Suggestions?

    Is it possible to completely remove or disable coaster brake setup

    Thats the route im leaning toward. Unless there's a simple way to fashion a new bracket mine snapped clean off.

    Is it possible to completely remove or disable coaster brake setup

    Just thought I'd see if its possible to remove the whole coaster brake setup so I can be rid of that damn coaster brake. Was riding a bit on Sunday and and bracket holding coaster brake on snapped off and the coster brake rotated and loosened my rear hub. How can I be rid of the coaster brake...

    So I went to start my engine for the first time...

    Hey Wrench thanks for the reply. Im in Pittsburg ca its not that cold here. I'll check and see if there's resistance with the s/p out when I get home from work tomorrow. Its just the cheap china doll motor all stock with the NT carb. I know the needle clip is on the third notch. Should I change...

    Did notice spark plug has what looks like a little soot or something.

    So I went to start my engine for the first time...

    Just wanted to know if it's normal for the engine to feel like it has some resistance when it first tries to start and run. I'm guessing its cause it needs to get lubricated? What else can I check? It also seems like it doesn't want to stay idling. I've already tried adjusting the idle screw a...

    Proper spark plug gap size

    I agree Wrench. I'm totally new to this hobby and just trying to be sure its built right the first time. Aways better to ask a question if not sure.

    Proper spark plug gap size

    OK guys. One more thing. Yesterday I went to both AutoZone and O’Reilly auto parts and it seems like none of these places have the right spark plug for these engines where else can I get them?

    Chain is rubbing on frame

    Yeah the idea with the washers i thought about right after my last post. I'll try that first if that doesnt work I'll go with the other suggestion. Thanks!
