    Well, all I can say is SWEET! This thing is amazing and the suspension feels so good. Have not taken it for a spin yet raining pretty hard here. Stay tuned for more photos and videos in the days to come.

    The bike looks awesome with those street tires. Let me know how it rides with them. You should get a tank cover. I got one and the best part is I know Meyer or ADA in Az stocks them. I'm not sure if anyone here has seen my bike after I got it powder coated but here it is with the tank cover.
    Time to destroy the competition on the 2nd but I'm gunning for you in the summer race! LOL

    That tank cover and paint looks nice! Oh man! now I want mine black lol.

    The rear tire is a new tire but the front is off my specialized rockhopper. They did not have the same tire in a 26". The front is a 26x1.9 and the rear is 24x2.10. I figured I would get the street tires on it then after the race put back the dirt tires and have some fun on some AZ trails. Want to get as much ride time on it with the street tires before the 2nd.

    They are going to have to create a new class for this type of bike at the races. There's no way a China Girl engine will be able to compete against those! :eek:

    Did you check to see if the petcock is open and try pushing the choke down and kick it until is starts.

    Yes, it is getting fuel tried choke and everything. Got blisters on my hand from kicking so much.

    Fired for a second the first time then nothing. I am gonna go get a new plug here in a minute.

    Try disconnecting the kill switch. If it's that, take the rubber gormet off at make sure the spring isn't touching the nut and screw.

    I added the Schwinn speedo to the bike. I had to attach the sensor onto the brake line in order to get close enough to the magnet to read.

    Thats a under statement, I actually scared myself.

    You sit there and twist the throttle wide open and it slowly picks up speed then all of sudden VROOOOOMMMMM!! I suppose thats the clutch engaging.
