    I found this forum after looking for info on how to reduce vibration on my new bike build. I am still very new to this and am not quite sure on a few things. I bought my bike from a local pawn shop for 40.00 and my motor kit for 35.00 because a friend bought it from BGF and it was missing the wireset from the engine. I have a total of 75.00 in it and need to work our a few kinks. The first of course is the vibration. The second is the fact that my carb is sitting a little sideways and that cant be good for the power. It just doesnt quite fit... If anyone has ideas I will be happy to take some picks of my new baby.

    Send the pics people here will be happy to help you out. We even have member there in Charlotte I think. I'm up in high point myself.

    usually the carb doesn't need to be perfectly level to work correctly.

    One more question is there an engine upgrade that would allow me to not have to hold the clutch when I stop?

    Very nice ride Frank

    How is it running? As long as the float is adjusted correctly and the fuel bowl is full of fuel it should run just fine with the carb in that position.
