    Sorry to change the subject, but did you decide against building the electric ripper? That thread got plenty of advice and discussion.

    no just waiting on funds and motivation. This spec sheet is what i turned into the mechanical engineering department at my school to try to generate interest and possibly funding to keep building. They said they were interested. It would be great to get engineers working on advancing bike technology.

    Who are these venders? Who did you purchase your engine from ? 12:1 compression ? With a stock head? What head are you running? Carb?

    Huffy, he has an Arrow engine. Its got a reed valve, boost porting and a mikuni flat slide carb. I believe it also comes with an Arrow exhaust.

    You might be right. I know one of his engines comes with a mikuni flat slide and one comes with an SHA clone, but I can't remember which is which. The spec sheet is to turn into the engineering department at his college. I doubt they will know the difference between a stock motor and an arrow motor. He should put reed valves and cylinder porting on the spec sheet though. These guys are engineers, I'm sure they know a thing or two about performance tuning in two stroke engines and that info would be helpful to them. But its Josh's spec sheet, he'll present it however he sees fit.

    The Arrow Motorized Cycles 4.5HP street racer motor comes with a billet head from CR Machine.
    It also comes with a 15mm flat Slide carburetor and filter so I am wondering
    why you a using a NT carb which won't perform as well?

    Why doesn't your spec sheet mention the reed valve?

    i was having trouble with that carb with air leaks so i used the stock. I didnt know where to put reed valve in the set of info that i had, so i had left it out. Also, i didnt know which head the cr machine head was whether it was the 5.5 the 6 or the 7 so i wanted to find a place in that set of info for that too, so i could accurately calculate the compression but i didnt know that info.

    The main reason i reached out to the forum is if someone knows the cc of the chamber in the head. Also if you think i should put more info on maybe indicate where you think it should go or specifically what corrections i should make. like: you should put "intake: reed valve " in the engine section. I just looked at this sheet to model my specs off of:

    No I don't build knock -offs.knock offs are imitations . I build race engines. Knock-offs are fake cheap junk.dance1

    Please don't jack my thread...
    I thought other people would be interested in a spec sheet....
    It does bring up a good point, i dont have access to a dyno but i wonder how much my actual performance is suffering due to the NT carb.
    I weighed my bike on scales and it is actually 63lbs with a bit of fuel in the take so its probably about 60 lbs dry. I dont like to keep my tanks full in case of spills so i dont have a wet weight but i could probably just derive that from weight of the fuel.

    Sorry josh he came me my bad please forgive me . Your performance suffering because in NT I would say lot . when I first started out and I was running a manic mechanic intake a boost bottle and then I got my DAX RT that was a big difference there. and I'll say this I'll never go back . I don't who he gets his clone carb from but its not want to be a clone their selling on Fea-bay. there should be a thread here on how to tune the clone , if not there should be one . No I won't do it . or contact your supplier .

    Josh, a gallon of gas weighs 6.2 lbs. The larger size kit tanks are 2.5 liters, which is roughly 2/3 of a gallon, so somewhere around 4 lbs with a full tank. If you've got the smaller size tank, I'm not sure how much gas they hold, but most likely you've got the larger tank. Unless you're not running a kit tank, then I've no idea how much gas you can hold. Just a little fyi.

    that is a significant amount of weight. I mean i knew gas wasnt light but i didnt really care too much to factor it in. That makes me feel like i should never run a full tank unless im treking across a few towns. I guess i have the 2.5 liter tank, i thought it was a 3 liter tank though. I know it has the m6 mounting hardware which is much more conveinent than the tiny m4 nuts that don't hold the tank on for anything.
