So tell us what mods you've done. You had to have done something to get it up to 40 mph (I assume you meant miles per hour, but you just said "40" in the video). 40 kph is about 25 mph which would be more in line with how fast they go stock.Bought this bike and after a little struggle it is up and running. Still need to make some mods happen and tweak a few things, but I think I'm going to like it.
Maybe my precision of language wasn't quite on point but not confused. I did mean 40 mph. Can't find the screenshot of my top speed of 42 mph for some reason. Cruises comfortably around 33-34 though. The rear sprocket change from stock 50 tooth to 44 tooth probably accounts greatly for that. The road tires help decrease rolling resistance as well. Have installed a different carb as well, but I'm going to be replacing that with a better version soon.Anyone can be confused once in a while. Benefit of the doubt...
When I was looking at that jackshaft tube I was wondering about turning it into a shifter aswell.. also a long tube exhaust would do great things for the low end of that motor I would assume.I wonder if you could replace the jackshaft with a longer one and rig a dual cent clutch 2-speed setup like some of the early '70s mini bikes had... I also think a long tube header pipe would give that Lifan more grunt to pull smaller sprockets. $$cha-ching$$
If this is an accurate replica of a Felt frame & assembled properly I'd see no reason for this bike not to track well. I know guys that run modified 15 hp 212cc Predators on actual Felt frames and they cruise 55 to 60 no problems.When I was looking at that jackshaft tube I was wondering about turning it into a shifter aswell.. also a long tube exhaust would do great things for the low end of that motor I would assume.
Also how stable is it at 40? Does it shimmy or shake any???
I've been following along here and i dont think im ready to throw in an extra 2 strokes on the deal yet. I have done a sneeze over 55 with a 2 stroke on a walmart bicycle and thats just thrilling, scary lol. And i'll throw in with a grain of salt i think those phatmoto's are certainly one of the best looking 4 strokers i've seen....kellyIf this is an accurate replica of a Felt frame & assembled properly I'd see no reason for this bike not to track well.

never thrash anybodys effort i've built 5 bikes and mostly just bolt it together but even that with this chinese stuff can be a challenge at times. I know what goes into it, one of the great things is there are a lot of options and differant ways to get motorized. after my first 2 ebay motors i wasnt ready to quit but i realized that i had better give this stuff some research and learn whats really going on. I've certainly thought about 4 strokes when i see numbers like 212cc thats like wow. Always handy at twistin a wrench and doing some things acquired skills from work history.I didnt know the first thing about these engines let alone a differance in a 2 or a 4 stroke. Self studied 2 strokes learned the cycle of how they actually work learned port timing ive studied porting all these aspects of a 2 stroke and i dont feel like i know much. So many things id like to do and learn still. I'm basically on a chinese 2 stroke budget and everything else gets more pricy after that I wish i had equipment to fab i follow what all you guys that are really building things what your doing here and i greatly admire it. I admire anybody who buy a kit and try to make it work. For now i'll build 2 strokes so far its the only thing i know anything of and if i spread it out its within my means.....kellyI like them both Kelly 2 or 4 stroke..now throw in electric which has a lot of real attributes as well. Why select one when you can build and ride all three? If you like one better than the others no need trashing another persons preference either. Ride what you like and build what you will; that goes good for me and should for others as well.
