    Here is an update. I did not make the test run today,..but instead re-orient or reposition the engine so that the carbs is away from the seat post. Whew..thanks to the Ridleys mount that you can do variety of things the easy way. I called Ridley last Friday and gave me the exact dimension of where the mounts / engine is supposed to be and Whala...here it is. See the comparison from before first pics and after. See how far the carbs are now from before. Now...I just have to shorten the chain...after all this will be the moment of truth..I will test drive it.

    To all on this thread: I said some stupid things for which Im truely sorry. I was under the influence of alcohol and my posts were nothing but stupidity on my part. I usually respect all and try to be helpful here because thats what I see and read. Again Im sorry if I offended anyone and I hope to remain apart of this forum.....No excuses except me being an idiot thinking I know some thing when Im clueless.

    FINALLLY!!! It works. The bike now IDLES and Idle reallly goood!!! See the video..

    I think it was the crapy intake manifold is the culprit. or could be the throttle cable (because of the kink inside the throttle housing).

    Anyways I took the engine off the bike and reassembled it all back again. I called Ridleys and walk me through the re-install and re-mount of the engine. Almost all of the parts was upgraded..new studs from SBP, new intake and throttle cable, new NGK plugs, new plug wires and cap, new fuel filter.

    I can feel the engine is really strong and notice a big deterrence with new NGK plugs and Accel wires.

    Thanks to all members of the this forum. You guys really stick it around and help me solve this problem. You're the best!!

    Guys I am not don yet...OOHH....another Engine??

    This is for my next build on a FELT Revolver...The bike has been ordered and it is on the way. This is my winter project...A 50cc Starfire GEN 2-A all chrome with black powdered coated head. For this project I am using Creative Engineering's engine mount, intake manifold, sprocket and adapter...I have learned a lot of experience from my first build..so i think this one will be easy...

    Lot of people under a lot of pressure now days we all need to be a bit more patient with each other might be me or anyone else next time. Thats alot of what really used to be great about this country sticking together.
