    The rag joint may work for most but when I used it I noticed the torque from the engine bent the spokes where the bolts went through. It caused my rim to bow and warp slightly.

    I guess the moral of the whole thread is to be more aware of who you are doing business with.

    I buy my motor kits from Zoombicycles so anything I custom make for HT engines will waranteed to work with that brand of engine only.

    I have been able to cobble together what ever I needed. Don't ever underestimate the ingenuity of the American people. Yes it may be ugly but its good enough for the women I go with.rotfl

    I got a buddy here that ordered two sprockets one came in two weeks the other THREE MONTHS. The summer riding was gone after that. He is a registered member here. There are a ton of alternatives too parts.

    Jim puts out a fine product your gonna have to wait for it is all. Folks will have to realize this. I can see where materials etc can get quit prohibitive. This must be a busy shop?

    To clarify...

    This thread was "undeleted" so people could see both sides of the debate regarding business practices as well as our policy regarding such.

    I would like to remind folks of a few small details - first and by far most important is that the contents of this thread includes both those that are displeased with MM's practices as well as those that appreciate them - so any bias beyond that is simply perception. I think it in it's entirety a pretty good, clear & unbiased example of the controversy surrounding this subject.

    Ironically we stand accused of both simultaneously persecuting and protecting MM - when in fact we're simply enforcing our rules regardless of "sides". We let this thread run to show that not only does MM have his detractors but fans as well - and yet both seem to have grave difficulty posting in a mature and responsible fashion & it's for that reason alone we pull those threads started in hate, posts that provide no more than perpetuating conflict.

    Some seem to be having some small difficulty in recognizing the difference between personal opinion and site policy, mistaking the recommendations & warnings of an individual for general forum procedure. Those warnings are not for inciting conflict - they're to warn you of potential problems in the interest of protecting you from disappointment.

    So while some may feel persecuted, it is in fact a situation of their own making. The following is the only true source of the discontent, all else is a symptom, not the cause;
