    Parts vibrating loose

    HEY GUYS! Just built my first beauty. It’s running well and strong aside from when I picked up a nail. However I have a question about how you guys like to secure your gas tank and mufflers. My attached components are tending to vibrate loose. Am I just going too fast? Or if there another way to...

    Here I go again....

    So I find myself once again as a noob. I had a 66/80 cc 2 stroke I custom built, pieced together over the course of a year, mounted on a purple Columbia Klunker. She wasn't pretty, but she could move. Go into Wal Mart one evening for 20 min, come out and all thats left is a puddle of gas/oil...

    new build shudders when clutch is released - headed to salt flats!

    Just went for the first spin on my new build. This is actually the second crack at the first build. The original was an attempt in a frame that simply had difficult geometry to work with. That said, bike starts and runs and works decently under pedal power. However as the clutch is...
