    NOOB question

    This forum will help with the first build better than any instructions and you can feel good about building something. Any questions can be answered here and I would reccomend a kit over a moped. Upgrades are available and parts are everywhere compared to a moped. 2 or 4 stroke is a hard one and...

    engine hardware question-first build

    I got it from a motorcycle shop and it is kind of expensive. It is a liquid that turns hard and coats the inside of your tank like hard rubber. There is enough of it to do about ten tanks and all you need for a new tank is the white bottle. eBay has them sold seperatly. I put two to three coats...

    Here is my bike :)

    almost sucked. It was so loud I thought the engine blew and looked at the engine and started fishtailing from one side of the road to the other. I locked the rear up and slid off the road but stayed up. There was about a two inch hole in my sidewall.

    Clutch not engaging

    take the side off that has the engaging arm and see if the pin and ball bearing behind it come out. Inspect the arm to see if it is seated properly and the retaining pin holds the arm in. Are your cables binding?

    Okay, getting spark, but still not running! GRRRR!!!

    the plug wire screws in to the cdi try seeing if it is loose. Also my filter has clogged before. What octane are you using they say lower will combust better. Recheck the ground wire and all wiring. Turn the idle screw in and reset it if it is running after that. Clean your air filter mine has...

    I remembered an article from a popular science and looked up. It is on a bike called the ride and it's made by Ellsworth bikes. I don't know how to give any links but it has an infinite gear ratio. The rear hub has ball bearings that roll at varying angles between two discs to change the gear...

    Std exhaust mod...not

    I replaced the baffle with one from a pocket bike and it has done alright but I ordered a stock one the other day because at wot it hesitates off and on. I am hoping the stocker will fix it. I also wrapped my exaust and enjoy the protection of it and wonder if it ads performance.
