    I'm glad to be hear, to be hear maybe I can be more assistance to others who need help in the future.

    This wasn't my first build I built a bunch of 2 strokes, but this was my first 4 stroke. I went through the normal first build whoas though. Thanks, for the comments we definitely need to set up something in san jose. I know there is a local moped group that gets together and does rides too. Maybe we can join in on that.

    Hi Slump,
    Nice build. How does the performance compare to the two strokes you have built? I am another south bayer, a little further south in Gilroy. Let me know if you guys put a ride together. We had a drag race and bar-b-que a few months back in Morgan Hill. It was pretty fun and definately funny racing motorized bicycles. We plan to do it again this spring.

    Yea, we definitely need to set up that ride. I did ride in bike party with my motorized bicycle but everyone seems not to like it and calls us cheaters. So, we definitely need to set something up.

    As for the performance I think the 4 stroke performs better. I can't tell right now because I am in the break in phase so I can't really test what the engine can do. But, I do open her up a little on straight aways and I can feel that pull right away. Also, the ride is way smoother than the 2 stroke. The only thing I dont like of the 4 stroke is the look. I wish that 4 stroke looked like a bigger version of the 3 stroke.

    Welcome to the forum. That thumper looks good enough to make the most dedicated 2 stoke rider consider buying an engine with valves.
    Post a pic of the other side of the bike so we can admire the rest of the drive train.
