    So today my girlfriend and i rode my OCC stingray about 35 miles. she sat on my lap basically. was a blast. together we weigh about 370 lbs (250, 120) max speed ~25mph, up hill, ~19mph. only problems that I had were than the sprocket nuts loosened a little (didnt lose any), and that the spark plug cap came off a couple times, but thats just because the little screw in thing stripped its threads due to vibration and heat. other than that, it was great

    Sounds like you guys had a great ride, thats what all this MB stuff is about, it forces us to slow down and smell the roses........in such a crazy fast paced world we live in thats a good thing IMHO..!

    Go to a motorcycle shop and get a good NGK plug boot and a NGK B6HS plug and the plug wire issue will be resolved.......that is one of the first things I do to my engines.

    Peace .flg.

    Thanks! I am currently working on a fix for the gas tank. I also need a better mounting method, because the vibration shook the gas tank right off

    oh, I did not mention that my petcock developed a serious gas leak. i think the threads stripped a little bit.
