    I didn't get one either. My kit was so cheap I could bend the clutch lever with my hand. I didn't even put it on the bike.

    No problem Cruiser, I'm sure we'll get together and ride, man am I itchin' for a ride. the snow is almost melted enough to get into my storage shed, after that its a quick tune up, some warm gloves and away with the wind(^).

    Deacon, I would not reccomend the stock clutch lever for anything more than scrap. I use locking Pyrimid brake levers, they are used on adult trikes and can be ordered at any LBS for between $10-15 a pair...Kelly

    What kind of speed are you guys getting with the stock Chinese 80cc kit and 44T sprocket ? I'm on a 24" bike and seem to be getting 20mph. Does a 26" make much difference ?

    thanks

    Has anybody used the Honda GXH50? I want to use it on my next build and was wondering who has used and how well does it work.

    There are those who swear it is not possible but I have seen 38-40 a couple of times on the flat, wide open. That was with a 44T, 26" 1.90 tires. Two different vehicles confirmed it. Not recommended.

    I'm changing one to a 36T from thatsdax just to lower the cruise rpm.

    Take spark plug out. Make sure piston is down a bit. Feed some clean flexible nylon or poly or whatever rope in spark plug hole. Turn engine now, until it tries to "compress" the rope. Rope trick.

    Are you saying the main shaft turns and no piston movement??? Yikes. Are you watching it with a box end wrench?

    If the shaft is turning and the piston and gears aren't then the rod is not connected and neither are the gears.

    Which would be easier to fit a friction drive wheel to, a trimmer motor or a blower motor.
