    New Build: Cranbrook/Lifan 152F Flathead/TAV2

    I'd suggest replacing the entire wheel with a hub having sealed bearings. Then no labor cost on relacing the hub. Orrrr, use a 3-speed hub.

    Is it possibe to add a transmission with multiple gears too a 2 stroke bike?

    Make sure you choose your gear ratios correctly. If not, you might damage your clutch, or your high gears will be ineffective.

    Staton-inc is Screwing Me!

    The check cleared. Then I ordered a special sprocket; it arrived in time. I'll probably order two more sprockets. The reason I order from Staton is that they're the correct size. They're also drilled and bored to bolt on freewheels, and they're reasonably priced. I'll make small purchases...

    What is the quietest motorized kit

    A CY460 engine is noted to be a loud one. However, I got mine to be so quiet, I swear I could hear the piston ring scraping the barrel at idle speed. I used the CG muffler from SickBikeParts and 18" of 5/8" of silicone rubber tubing.

    I'm New, So Take It Easy :)

    Like Davideo said, limping home on one engine is much better than pushing your bike for miles to get. home. Then there’s the extra torque for climbing steep hills or bucking headwinds.

    I'm New, So Take It Easy :)

    Welcome to our world, Spankler. I've done old-school lead batteries(heavy!) with electric hub in the front wheel. The bike first weighed 45lbs and ended up @ 125lbs. Its top speed was about 27mph, with a 54-mile range. Modern batteries would have lightened the bike. I've also done rear...

    49cc 4 stroke Pull start problems

    Adjust your throttle cable or bracket. Maybe it’s binding. Pull start recoils on a new engine seems normal. Do short pulls on the rope. Just suggestions.

    What size is your steerer tube? You're in luck, if it's 1.125". There are many vendors selling that size on ebay. If it's 1" size, only a few vendors.

    I didn't use PayPal. Staton emailed once, said they had machining problem. By the time I contacted CC, it was too late to resolve.

    Staton-inc is Screwing Me!

    No. I used my credit card. Staton emailed me today, saying I needed to choose between a 36h and a 48h wheel hub. He claimed he emailed me many times and I didn't respond. I never ordered those wheel hubs, and I never got his emails he supposedly sent. I told him I wanted my money back. I had...
